Insight & Inspiration

Made in the UK, an original vintage pattern has been tweaked to give the modern woman an immensely flattering pair of vintage style trousers. For our 1940s swing trousers we have opted for a mid weight rayon/poly mix because it doesn't crease too badly, it's also breathable, and has a little spandex stretch for the best possible fit through the waist and hips.

Detailed Description

1940s fashions were focussed upon the hourglass shape, so if you have a smaller waist but fuller hips these 1940s swing trousers will be a great choice for you. You may not be used to a high waistband and side button fastening, but this is a styling trick that can be can be immensely flattering. these trousers look especially good with a 1940s top.

Fastening at the side rather than the front creates less bulk and doesn't draw attention to your waist. The high waist allows for simple pleats, a detail which helps make legs look longer (our model pictured is 5ft 0 inches). Short to average height ladies will be very pleased with the length which ends in a wide cuff at the bottom, a great vintage style detail.

We have a range of vintage style trousers at Revival Retro, each with their own variation in style to make them flattering for different body shapes.

60% Polyester, 34% Viscose, 6% Spandex.

Size & Fit Expertise

Please note that we have resized these (part from the black) from what the supplier suggests, in line with expectations of our regular customers at Revival Retro. Order your usual size from us with confidence and ignore what the label says once your order arrives.

Curvy girls, if you are particularly self conscious about your hip, tummy or thigh area, you should try the Old Hollywood Style or Casablanca trousers as they give more fabric in the fit.
