34 Fantastic Photos of Women Wearing Trousers During the 1930s

The 1930s is when we really see women in trousers get their stride. It was still not
accepted by the majority in the early part of the 1930s.

They were not widely worn, but by the mid 1930s it was acceptable for wear for
sportswear.  They’re mostly seen on campus, at the resort, and in other places if you
lived in the warmer climates like Southern California or Florida.

In the second half of the 1930s, trousers really start going crazy.  In 1939 it seemed
everyone wanted them. There were lounging ones, playing ones, work ones, beach ones,
pajamas… and sometimes even dinner outfits.

The late 1930s is playful, and trousers fit in perfectly with that ideal.  Trousers were
not meant to hug your butt.  They really wanted them to fit like a skirt- skimming your
hips and rear loosely, then falling to a low crotch, and splitting into a bifurcated
garment.

Here below is a nice photo set that shows trousers' styles of women from the 1930s.
