People in the 50s used to wear some crazy ass pants.

Let’t not get started on the pants of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and early 90s. (Hammertime, anyone?)

When I saw these pants at Kohl’s the other day I had to have ’em. They’re so ugly they’re cute. 

The good thing (potentially the only good thing) about the current skinny jean craze is that slim fitting cropped pants are pretty easy to incorporate into a vintage look. They’re not usually high-waisted, but that’s not the end of the world.

I’m not usually one for wearing pants (oh come on, you know what I mean) but I figured these could be styled in a 50s sort of way with a cropped top and sandals.

As the high temperature today is a balmy 25, the sandals will have to wait a few more months. But we are a go for ugly pants! Yay for Kohl’s clearance racks!

In a full disclosure, these are not the ugliest pants I’ve ever owned. There was a rather horrid pair of jeans in 8th grade with bleached white stripey things down the thighs; and a pair of plaid pants in high school. Green and blue plaid, mind you. Give me enough time and I could probably come up with a few more examples.

See you on Friday!

  1. The navy slacks on the first pattern look exactly like something Laura would wear on the old Dick Van Dyke Show.

    Your sweater, slack and sandal ensemble is cute. I know what you mean about Kohl's clearance racks. Double yay when you can score a big bargain.
