1940s Street Style 2 women victory rolls-Vintage Photo Tuesday

Many of the online searches that find their way to my blog is for “1930’s-1950’s Fashion ideas”. So I thought for this week’s Vintage Photo Tuesday, I would find some well dressed “regular folks” images from the 1940’s and share them with all of you. Then future VPT’s will focus on the other timelines.

Let’s check out the 40’s Street Style!

  1. The last one! I love her hat, and his three-piece suit. As for the others, there is just something so appealing and comfortable about wearing skirts with ankle socks. I wish that style would come back!
