Women’s fashion in the 1930s featured long gowns, modest heeled shoes, and the tailored two piece suit. Flutter sleeves, floral prints, and ruffles shaped 1930s dresses into beautiful and feminine silhouettes. The look was tall and lean with modest necklines and midi tea lengths hems. The bias cut gave women gentle curves around the long waist with a slightly flared skirt. The decade was in an economic depression but the clothes were all Hollywood could talk about. A 1930s Art Deco dress was cheerful and happy when made of summer whites, pastels and small prints. The later 30s embraced short hems, the swing skirt, and patriotic colors like navy and red. The current boho 70s trend was heavily inspired by 30s dresses. Learn more about women’s 30s dresses.
