1940s sweaters, knit tops, shirts, vests, and cardigans continued to be worn as a winter-to-springtime fashion piece. During the war, those who could knit did so out of necessity and economy, creating adorable short sleeve sweater tops, longer chunky knit pullover sweaters, and button up cardigans. By the end of the 1940s, sweaters were becoming less utilitarian and more fashion forward.
These new sweaters and knitwear mimic the popular styles of the 1940s. Combined with 1940s pants or skirts, they can create a vintage inspired outfit for any season.
