40’s Style

Men and women wore styles similar to 30’s, except colors and glamour were becoming celebrated again in moderation in late 40’s. Ladies’ business suites were more common. The men’s gray flannel suites appeared in 40’s and were flashy and new. Later in 50’ they became widely accepted part of business attire. The single-breasted suites were beginning to make a show in the late 40’s as men began to wear trimmer look. Trousers moved away from the baggy looser fit toward taper. Pants for ladies were common. Hats for ladies were vogue netted “widows hats” and ladies style fedoras and pill box hats. Glamour was always in for the rich and famous. We carry accessories, shoes, coats, hats, scarves, jewelry and more matched to 40’ styles.
