If you love more simple, modest designs, then you're in for a treat! In 1940 fashion placed more focus on accentuating a slimmer waist, showed hardly any cleavage and featured mostly knee length A-line skirts. In times of war, hardship and rationing of fabric and materials, women adapted their clothing styles to become simpler without much fuss. Some of the dress patterns that remain popular even until now are the shirtwaist dresses with higher, collared necklines in solid colours, prints or patterns. At Dressific, we adore this style so much so that the 1940s is easily one of our favourite decades. Our selection of ladylike, 40’s fashion dresses are both stylish and versatile, making it perfect for work or everyday wear, just like the good ol' days.
