Fact – this was the decade in which nylon stockings was invented.
Shoulder length hair with wavy curls was a big trend, think Lauren Bacall, Ginger Rogers, Katherine Hepburn, and Veronica Lake. The styles of the sexy big screen sirens had a huge impact on women. Dresses and skirts were mostly knee length and for tops, shoulder pads were unfortunately in style. I remember when I was younger, my grandmother would try to give me old clothes of hers and I swear the majority of them came from the 1940s when she was in her mid-twenties. Now, I wish I had saved some of them because I am sure there was bound to be something vintage that would be appropriate for the present decade. I was a child, I was a fool to popular culture, and there was no way in hell I was going to wear something 40 years older than me.
Why is it that seeing models fall on the runway gives us normal people great pleasure?!
Women are beginning to accessorize! Hats, bags and scarves oh my!
Gloves were an absolute must during this period. There were gloves that were up to the wrist for during the day, and elbow length gloves for the evening. Short hair remained popular for most of the 1930s.
