American Women Winter Fashion on the Eve of War -

1941 US Fashion report by Catherine Roberts for Glamourdaze.

Here they are … the winter fashion for 1941/42.
During the summer, thousands of you told your favourite department store exactly what you wanted in the way of fashion details in your Fall /Winter wear, and apparently this is what you collectively asked for.

Then the practical considerations entered the picture. Since the coat must see you well through the winter, it is of 100% virgin wool, lined and with a light interlining. the neckline is comfortably high. Next, the body of the coat is fitted snugly and subtly flared for flattering slenderness – regardless of your figure.

As for the dress, the gored skirt is more practical that a pleated one, a collarless neckline more comfortable under the coat – shoulders widened rather than exaggerated are in better taste.

The entire effect has that desired smart simplicity that is usually found only in higher priced fashions.

That’s all !
