Women went to work during World War II--many wearing men's coveralls and jumpsuits, which was the inspiration for the sportswear look here. The green jumpsuit to the right, was the first attempt of allowing women to wear pants by making it look more like a dress.  During the 1970's the look returned to evening wear.

“As to matters of dress, I would recommend one never to be first in the fashion nor the last out of it."
