Today’s post will be focusing on using the 1940’s as inspiration and tomorrow I will review the 1950s. As you can see, I found a few shapes that are reminiscent of the 1940s that flatter a woman’s body and are also comfortable.
For example, I feel a basic every woman should have in her wardrobe is a wide legged pant. The one’s I used are from Anthropologie, but you can find similar styles at Target for a better price. These are easy, comfortable, and I think they look great on everyone.
Another choice you could make is to wear a sailor trouser instead of a jean. These are made to be worn with a wide leg and a casual top such as a cute graphic t-shirt or a sassy blouse.
And finally, for the days when you know you are not going to be seeing anyone, or the baby was up all night long and the idea of putting on clothing is just too much, you could always resort to a cute pair of nice pajamas. When the baby was born and I knew I was going to be shlubbing at home, I just went to Target and picked out a few inexpensive pajama sets and made sure I only wore them as outfits in the home ie: I didn’t sleep in them.
So those are just a few ideas on what you can wear at home when you don’t want to wear your precious vintage, you want to be comfortable, and you want to feel like a glamorous housewife. Tomorrow I will have a collage on inspiration from the 1950s, so stay tuned!
