Women’s fashion in the 1930s featured long gowns, modest heeled shoes, and the tailored two piece suit. Flutter sleeves, floral prints, and ruffles shaped 1930s dresses into beautiful and feminine silhouettes. The look was tall and lean with modest necklines and midi tea-length hems. The bias cut gave women gentle curves around the long waist with a slightly flared skirt. Though the decade was one of economic depression, the clothes were all Hollywood could talk about. A 1930s Art Deco dress was cheerful and happy with its summer whites, pastels and small prints. The later 30s embraced short hems, a swing skirt, and richer patriotic colors like navy and red. The current 70s boho trend was heavily inspired by 30s dresses.
