What Dressing Up Looked Like In The 1930's

posted Jul 19, 2017 by Kathy Pinna
In the 1930's, fur was very popular in fashion - so were sequins and a long line - and the influence of movie stars on fashion began to grow. Perhaps the glamor was a needed relief from the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Or perhaps the popularity of that new medium "the talkies" and the ability to make more complex movies, such as musicals, made dressing up more glamorous and fun. The beautiful gowns of the '30s are still a fashion influence today on the Red Carpet, but some things like wearing real fur is now out of date. Do you recognize the similarities to today’s fashion?
