WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED PANTS? Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today!
40’s Women’s Pants: Classic high-rise pleated pants with stylish belts are a timeless staple of 1940s women’s fashion. Straight-leg pants and wide-leg pants with cuffed ankles and deep pockets were all the rage during this iconic fashion era.
50’s Women’s Pants: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when skinny plaid pants, capri pants, and cigarette pants first made their debut! High-waisted pants paired with stylish belts, and pants with pockets became a fashion must-have, and don’t forget the prints! Polka-dot pants, plaid pants, and striped pants have been stealing hearts ever since. By the end of this fashion era, cropped skinny pants, and high-waisted cigarette pants were all the rage, and getting paired with sleeveless button-up tops, stylish flats, or sensible kitten heels.
60’s Women’s Pants: In the 1960’s, denim jeans FINALLY became mainstream! Wide-leg jeans, high-rise flare pants, bell-bottom jeans, and jeans with bold floral embroidery or rainbow striped detailing became all the rage. Bold floral print pants, leopard print pants, and colorblock pants are still fashion hallmarks of this iconic era. Button-fly jeans, Chelsea pants, and sailor pants with adorable front patch pockets hit the fashion scene in the 1960s, and Audrey Hepburn had everyone wearing black turtlenecks with high-rise cigarette skinny pants.
70’s Women’s Pants: High-rise flare pants with bold geometric prints can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Bell bottoms, corduroy pants, wide-leg jeans, and sassy jumpsuits filled the disco dance floors. Overall pants made an appearance in the 70’s, and the disco era also made way for sequin pants and stretchy velvet pants.
80’s Women’s Pants: The demand for cute and comfortable track pants blew up in the 1980’s, and mom jeans hit the scene! Pleated trousers were perfect for work and acid wash denim pants, paperbag pants, and baggy joggers with bold neon prints ruled the dance floor. The birth of hip-hop brought us baggy jeans, while rainbow prints, neon colorblock, and animal prints were stretched out as far as the eye can see.
90’s Women’s Pants: Plaid pants had a major resurgence in the 90’s, and leggings finally took their rightful place in everyday apparel. Brightly printed leggings, neon leggings, and vibrant solid leggings layered under an oversized tee were a casual wardrobe staple. Enter the infamous era of low-rise jeans, and hip-hugger pants! Denim overalls with cute crop tops, or a bodysuit was always a good call. Cargo pants had their time in the limelight along with utility jeans and carpenter pants. Finish your look with a pair of combat boots, wedge sandals, or chunky Mary Janes and voila! A total nineties babe!
