Feminine trouser suits in classic retro and vintage style
We love trouser suits in Mondo Kaos, and we think they can do something very special because they are both practical for everyday life and the perfect alternative to the dress to party!
The trouser suit is one piece of clothing that covers the entire body with the exception of the head, hands and feet, and which is usually closed at the front with either a button closure, button closure or zipper.
The trouser suits from the early days 40s was practical and easy to move in and did not give much silhouette. The trouser suits from the later 40s almost looked like evening dresses with their voluminous, wide legs and beautiful draping, and the suits from the 50s were tight-fitting and figure-highlighting often with narrow, short cigarette legs to create the familiar hourglass silhouette!
A little about the history of the trouser suit
Some of the first trouser suits that were designed were actually professional parachute suits that the soldiers wore during World War II. Precisely because the men were at war, the women took over many of their jobs and they had to wear work clothes. Therefore, suits were designed for the women so that they could move and work more quickly, thus benefiting the homeland as much as possible. The trouser suit in the early 40s is often characterized by a shirt collar and closure, long sleeves with a drawstring and ordinary trouser legs.
After the war, the design of the trouser suit began to develop, so that it suddenly became a fashionable garment that could be worn on several occasions, and which not only symbolized workwear. Suddenly, wide, draped trouser legs and defined waists were seen, and the trouser suit was now used to show off the figure, like all other clothing in the post-war resurgence.
In the 50s, the design evolved again, and the angular, uniform-like look was now predominantly fit. The trouser suit in 50s became more snug and figure-framing, the neckline changed from the masculine shirt collar to the feminine boat collar, the trouser legs first became narrower, then shorter, and the whole expression became generally more feminine, while it was still not completely normal for women to walk with pants at the time. Therefore, trouser suits were also designed with so-called 'culottes' legs, which are short, wide trouser legs that give the impression of a dress / skirt, even if they are trousers!
