Fashion in the 40s


Fashion in the 40s was certainly affected by World War II. The war puts fashion on hold, but the postwar leisure class makes up for it. Girls look just like Mom in identical outfits, while the boys dress up in Eton suits for business, playsuits for pleasure. The sporty hit the shore in matching beach sets or that daring new bikini
