what I wore today: the biggest pants ever
Oh wow. I found these incredible 1940s rayon pants at an estate sale in Beverly Hills last week for $25. Each colossal pant leg measures a ridiculous 50″ in circumference. It seems like these giant pants were the evolution of yesterday’s beach pajamas.
The wide-legged pants of the 1930s were tight on the hip and flared out straight from there, but in the 40s the silhouette became more relaxed, emphasizing a small waist rather than hips, which works out for big-assed me.
