Marlene Dietrich certainly started something when she appeared at the opening of The Sign of the Cross, wearing a masculine tuxedo, wing collar, soft felt hat, mannish topcoat, and a pair of mannish patent leather shoes!

In the 1930s women didn’t wear pants too often but for summer days at the beach or playing a sport pants were not only acceptable but highly fashionable!

For day wear a pair of white or navy blue high waist, wide legs pants with a nautical or sailor look were trendy.

On the beach women wore soft, flowing, very wide leg Beach Pajamas or palazzo pants. They were soft pastel colors or big geometric prints such as stripes and checks. Many had attached overall straps or were a full jumpsuit.
