Female Short Pants

these gals look like they’re having a good time, hanging out in their female short pants – which is the only description life magazine could give me for this set of photos. date unknown… mid-fifties i’m guessing?

    I really like this – a small town full of women in high-waist shorts. They look fantastic (waists!) – but quite awkward to wear, I’d say – and if it is mid 50s I can’t imagine what the shiny harlequiny ones are made of!

      i could be way off the mark about the date… i threw mid-fifties out their based solely on the cars and the audrey hepburn-esque sunglasses & shorts (which she did wear around that time). could be late fifties…?

      and yes, their waists!!

    It always amazes me how much our body shapes have evolved through the decades – it seems to me we are growing longer & less pronounced as the years go by. Breasts used to be jacked up like little rockets, waists were minute, thighs were full, and ankles were toothpicks. A compelling arrangement of extremes.

    GOOGIE’S COFFEE SHOP was located at Fifth and Olive in Los Angeles, California. The building is now gone (as always seem to be the case) but a quick google search of Googies Los Angeles will bring up some neat photographs.
