1940s Style Dresses | 40s Dress, Swing Dress

Dress in WWII era vintage inspired 1940s style dresses then dance the night away swing dancing to the latest big bands. 1940s dresses are flattering with a modest top, a fitted waist, and knee length A-line skirt. The later ’40s saw the skirt narrow into the pencil or wiggle shape for a bit more Va Va Voom in her walk.  Patriotic colors (red, white, blue, army green) were the most common during wartime while brighter pink, yellow, sage and sky blue cheered women up in the late years. Don’t forget prints were in! Small florals, polka dots, checks, and thin stripes added variety to a wardrobe. Read about 1940s Fashion history before you shop including the 10 best 1940s dress styles.
