There are 3 fashion period in 40s, the early period, the middle period and late 40s, every period have their specification.
1. The early 40s period, casual fashions were popular with a hemline just below the knee, the dropped waist line went back to the natural waist line, and house dresses commonly had a very tailored look, with special attention to collars, sleeve details, and style lines of the blouses in general.
2. The middle 40s period, choose outfits with the more gentle silhoute of the mid 40s fashion, compensate with colors, the became hot and swing was the scene, fashion was sure to respond to this new fad quickly, and natural make up is a must.
3. The late 40s period, skirts became much fuller, tops began to be more form fitting with less drape, blouses quickly lost their “enlisted” look, and took on a more feminine look with shorter sleeves, and more emphasis was placed on the bust.
So what do you think, are you interesting in 40's fashion ? For me...yes of course ^^, my favorite is the lovely dress and the hat.
My favorite style icons at that period, Lauren Bacall and Bergman Ingrid
My favorite scetch shows 40s look
As I read in magazine this 40s look will be one of 2011's trend, like Marc Jacob's collection for fall 2011, 40s Meets the Future, the prevailing silhouette recalled the ’40s with a dash of Victorian–high-waisted pencil skirts and ultra-tailored dresses with oversized pockets at the hip or peplums to emphasize tiny waists, cap sleeves, open backs and jabots–the materials were brand new, futuristic even.
they are look amazing, aren't they...
I'm trying the 40s look couple months ago, i think this is "the early period", but actually not to 40s too, i think i have to change my make up and hair do ^^...what do you think?
So thats it for now...
