Vintage Outfit Post-Easy Summer Style 1930s trousers and Striped Shirt

 
 
Like my vintage blogging friend Jessica of Chronically vintage, I don't wear trousers that often.  However, my reason has nothing to do with being girly. I absolutely love the masculine influenced styles of the 1930s and 40s as impeccably worn by Marlene Dietrich and Katherine Hepburn.  A key summer element of both of these women's glamorous androgyny was a well tailored by pair of wide  legged white pants:

Looking at their cool, comfortable summer style left me craving a white pair of pants of my very own.  However my problem with pants is that at barely five feet tall,  all trousers must inevitably undergo a drastic hemming.  Still when I saw the ivory 1940s Swing Trousers on Hey Day Vintage and the NudeeDudee 1930s style tee, I couldn't resist and I'm happy I didn't! 



Like my other pair of Hey Day pants the ivory trousers are super comfortable and after a hem up they fit very well.   The striped cotton t from NudeeDudee is probably the best m t-shirt I have ever owned, made of nice thick cotton and very stretchy its sturdy and stylish. 


 


 
 Not to be left out Weasley is wearing his metrosexual t-shirt.
 


  And in the end maybe I am a little bit girly because in the end I couldn't resist adding a 1940s style hair flower.

  5. I really love this classic look on you sand those trousers are so flattering. Vintage/vintage-style trousers that fit my figure and budget are so hard to find. I think that's partially why I don't often get around to buying or wearing them. Thankfully I won't be pregnant for much longer and one big goal I have for the next year is to sew up my own vintage -style trousers. Your look is definitely an inspiration for the type of pants I want.
