The Sunday Snag – Leggy Peggy

I've been hunting for a pair of high waist pants for a while now. I wanted a vintage style and in a color that would match most tops as well. I, luckily, snagged this pair of sleek trousers from The Vintedge Co.! They are actually vintage 80s-90s, but done in a 50s style. The measurements are slightly larger than mine, but this was perfect because I can tailor them to my body instead of praying for a miracle! Any suggestions on what type of blouse you would pair with this leggy staple??? I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts!

**********************************************************************************************************Update: I got my first chance to wear these the other day and I paired it with a deep red knit top with 40's gathered shoulders and a neckline like this dress. For accessories, I had a pair of vintage gold and moonstone stud earrings, black enamel flower brooch, and a large deep crimson silk scarf with the tiniest polka dots tied into a bow on the side of my pin up hairstyle. Danced all night and the trousers were wonderful!

  6. Obviously something tight around the waist to show off waistline! Something featuring a unique shoulder ..off one shoulder...the pants look uptight...so the top should be looser...lol!

  10. So cute! I love the high waist and absence of a fly. In the Fifties, women's pants rarely had fly-fronts and looked more feminine without them. Great score.

    1. I was excited! The red blouse was actually an old dress that I never wore anymore, so I cut it into a blouse instead. Best decision ever!

  21. I always worry about the dreaded "mom jeans" look with high waisted pants. These ones look really nice though!

    1. Yep, it is a fine line, but these really look more like a retro rockabilly style, so I'm safe for now! haha! ;-)

  22. They're just marvelous! I've had lousy luck with vintage/repro pants over the years (save for my beloved Freddies of Pinewood jeans and overalls). They never seem to fit me right(I'm short and a bit curvy) - not that most modern pants do either. It's not a hunt I'm ever going to give up though - even if it comes down to commissioning a seamstress to make a pair or two for me.

    1. Yes, pants are notoriously hard for me too. These needed tailoring. I had to let out the seems from the calf to the ankle and make tiny side slits on the ankle to give them more movement. As for modern pieces, I swear by Anthropologies jeans! I've never owned a better pair in my life!

  26. These are lovely. Maybe a nautical style top? Or a small scarf tied around the neck?
