Everyday Styles of Women in the 1940s

While it’s so much fun to oooh and aaah over 1940s fashion magazine editorials and Hollywood starlets dressed to the nines, I mostly prefer seeing how the everyday woman actually dressed. Here are some images I sourced from the wonderful Tumblr 1940 to 1949, you must go visit after you’ve read this post to see more fashions from the 1940s!

I really adore the dresses the three gals are wearing, I could easily see myself wearing any of these. Also this truck is awesome, I know my husband would really love it!

I love these three! When the weather cools off again, I’ll be quite ready to wear scarves around my head again!

I pretty much want to be friends with these last two gals solely based on their outfits and what they’re currently doing (holding a kitty, reading a book in the park). *hehe*

  1. These are such great photos. I love reading the editorials and seeing what they were predicting fashion wise but it’s just sooo much fun to see how ‘real people’ interpreted all of it. Great pics!
