WWII brought out a different type of fashion.  Woman started wearing clothes with a more boxed off shoulders, narrow hips, and skirts that ended just below the knee.  Not to mention, tailored suites were starting to come into fashion also.  Fashion became very “do it yourself” Unlike the 1920’s where everything was as flashy as it could possibly be, conserving fabrics was the main goal when it came to making your clothes.  As for the men, they kept things very classy by wearing suits with solid colors usually in black or grey.  They had a loose fit and broad shoulders which is very common in most suits today.  Fedora’s were also extremely common during this time period weather you were a common business man or a gangster, Your hat was a must have when leaving the house.
