I adore 1940’s fashion, especially the suits. While I don’t think I could personally ever get used to such full shoulder pads, I nonetheless appreciate the clean, simple lines which were such a trademark of the decade. The particular version I created is a conglomeration of two separate looks…a typical straight seamed skirt with a blazer jacket that gathers at the waist. I took inspiration from a variety of sources, and since I couldn’t decided on one particular look, I created a style of my own.
What also makes this outfit unique and feminine, is the ruffled blouse underneath. Simple in construction, this blouse gives a little extra flair from the detailed neckline to the tapered sleeves.
I hope you enjoy my version of a 1940’s fashion staple!
