The classy 1930s introduced us to form-fitting, tea length dresses that made women’s bodies look beautiful. 1930s art deco plus sizes dresses were elegant chiffons, georgette and silk gowns cut to hug natural curves in the most flattering ways. Tops had modest high necklines, loose flowing shoulders with a cape or long sleeves and long vertical lines. Many of today’s modern formal dresses are inspired by Old Hollywood in the 1930s as well as the 20s to 40s Art Deco beading and geometric shapes. Day dress looks are similar to the current trend of boho 1970s maxi dresses and wrap dresses with flutter sleeves, ruffles, and hanky hemlines. Late 30s style tea dresses are a bit shorter with swinging skirts in small floral prints.
These vintage inspired Art Deco and 1930s plus size dresses, tops, and bottoms have the overall look and feel of day and evening thirties party clothing in a full range of sizes.
