More Forties Style Icons

So as you all should know by now, 'A 1940's Knee's Up' has a dress code.
Just to give you a few tips on women's style in that decade, Ava Gardner and Katharine Hepburn epitomized the classic and timeless look that the forties are known for.

Key 1940s pieces for Ladies:
  • Straight, knee length skirt
  • Smart jacket with padded shoulders and a tapered waist
  • Low-heeled canvas shoes. Leather was being rationed so canvas shoes were popular.
  • A veiled hat
  • White gloves
  • An alligator handbag
Look at 1940s film clips and vintage clothing online to give you an idea of fashion in the forties. Try eBay or local charity shops for a bargain.
