Women’s retro vintage 1950s pants came in several shapes. In the early years, the high waisted and wide-leg trouser of the ’40s was still in style. The most popular mid to late 1950s pants style was the 50s cigarette pants with their high waist, full hips, and skinny fit through a leg that ended just above the ankle. 1950s capri pants are the most nostalgic with a high waist, slim fit, and mid-calf length. Capri pants in black, leopard and polka dot are a favorite pin up and rockabilly fashion item.
Shorter pedal pushers had wide legs and a knee length. Vintage dark blue denim 1950s jeans came in both long and capri lengths for wide as well as slim fitting styles. A thickly rolled cuff was usually worn. 1950s overalls or dungarees were also a popular casual look. Learn about the history of women’s 1950s pants here.
