Laura Petrie - The Dick Van Dyke Show

Like most '60s housewives, Laura wore '60s-style shift dresses, capes, and feminine nighties, but Mrs. Petrie really became a style icon because of her modern wardrobe. "I had Laura wear pants," actress Mary Tyler Moore once explained, "because I said, 'Women don't wear full-skirted dresses to vacuum in.'" Her cigarette-style pants became a huge fad, and are still considered very chic.
