This gorgeous modern suit has a silhouette reminiscent of 1930s womens' suits. Broad shoulders, emphasis on the small waist, and the flair of the bottom of the jacket, as well as the mid-calf length pencil skirt were all very emblematic of the time.
1940s teenager clothing suits skirt and jacket. An alternative to the sweater was to wear a tailored jacket with matching skirt. These two peice suits were worn for school and church but hardly anywhere else. To teens they were too matronly and too stiff ~
1940s suit. I've been busy squelching people's creativity suggesting they play it safe when dressing for an interview. So I thought I would go out on a limb and say, I think suits from the 1940s and 1950s translate remarkably well into today's work world. I had five suits from the 40s I wore often when I worked at Citibank, and always got complements. They have to be in very good condition, you must treat them gently, and of course, they must fit well. (I'd lose the flower, though.)
