Gorgeous silhouettes, simple and understated? Yes please! That’s 1940’s fashion in a nutshell! It was during the time of World War II where trend development wasn’t top of the priority list in a poor economical time. Thankfully someone came up with the genius idea of ‘make do and mend’! The richer women were still adorned with furs and dazzling diamonds whilst the less fortunate still rocked their new and improved clobber!
Simplification was key and you wouldn’t walk down a street without seeing a woman dressed in her clean cut uniformed shape dress and jacket with a boxed padded shoulder for a classy, edgy touch. Love it! A cheeky pleat or ruffle wouldn’t go a miss either for a sassy feminine touch! Women still knew how to look amazing despite industry hardship!
