Fashion Time Travel Series : Stylish Thirties

Alright people, we just landed in the stylish thirties, our second part of the Fashion Time Travel series (if you wanna go back to the roaring twenties' fashion, click here)! This decade to me was far more elegant and gracious than the roaring twenties. Elegance and ladylike appearances, that's what the stylish thirties were all about! Feminine curves were seen and hair became softer and prettier as hair perms improved. Foreheads which had been hidden by cloche hats were revealed and adorned with small plate shaped hats. Clothes were feminine, sweet and tidy by day with a return to real glamour at night.
