Bringing back the “Laura Petrie” Pant

The other day I was shopping with my mom, I tried on some pants that were so cute, coincidentally I also had on flats and a cardigan…Mom said, “you’re wearing Laura Petrie pants”. I didn’t quite know what she meant by that so I whipped out my handy dandy handy (in Germany the youngsters call a cell phone a handy!) and googled it up…turns out that she was correct, I WAS wearing Laura Petrie pants…Ha!
The actress, Mary Tyler Moore, played Laura Petrie in the Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966). The classy, fun loving and witty lil’ lady rocked these pants, fitting of the 60’s! Funny how style goes because Laura Petrie pants are totally ‘in’ now!
Here are a few different ways to style your Laura Petrie pants…
They look great with flats and a button up blouse, or a light sweater for a more casual look or my favorite, a blazer and sparkly flats!
I think Mary would approve!
Try the look and let us know how you style Laura Petrie pants!
