Trousers High Waisted like Kate Hepburn wore
By the 1930s trousers had crossed over to the female wardrobe. Katharine Hepburn in particular used the trouser suit to project the modern image of the new American woman as an independent person who could operate on her own terms in the male professional world. Wide legged trousers were once dismissed as manly and unstylish. Actresses in their films and press photos created a sexual ambiguity, reworking an old device of using men's clothes to enhance femininity.
