1940s Style

The 1940s are heavily inspiring fashions this season. The look is very feminine and delicate. Hair is curled or set in loose waves and the key make-up item is red lipstick. I strongly recommend having a make-up artist pick out the right shade of red lipstick for you. Since it is a very bold colour the wrong shade can look harsh, however the right shade looks dramatic and sexy.


Blouses with femine details such as bows and ruffles are pefect for getting the vintage look. They are great when paired with a pencil skirt or high waisted jeans for a more casual look.

A) Liz Baker® Ruffle Blouse $17.99 To $21.99 Jcpenny.com
B) Long Sleeve Pussy Bow Shirt $62.03 Asos.com
C)Sutton Studio Exclusive Buttonfront Blouse with Tie $139.00 Bloomingdale.com

I find pencil skirts to be very flattering. They cover a lot but because they are shaped to the contours of the body they are extremely sexy. A pencil skirt is a staple which never goes out of style and can be paired with multiple items.

A) Calf Skirt $27.80 Forever21.com
B) Puppytooth fluted pencil skirt $88.00 Bananarepublic.com
C)Ruby Skirt $118.00 Marciano.com

Hosiery in the form of thigh highs, with seam detailing, keyhole tights or fishnets are the perfect finishing touch for any outfit. Hosiery is that extra detail which completes an outfilt and makes you look well put together.

A)Hanes® Silk Reflections® Stockings, Sandalfoot 3-Pk $8.99 Onehanesplace.com
B)Spanx Fishnet medium control top with back seam $26.00 Figleaves.com
C)Cropped Keyhole Bow Footless Tights $13.00 Asos.com

I love the shoes for this season. I really like the black and white contrasting. These are very trendy shoes, so perhaps if you wanted to opt for something that will withstand the fashion seasons you could try the classic high heeled pump and still pull of the 1940s look.

A) Pleaser USA Seduce-458 $55.95 Zappos.com
B)Modern Vintage Women's Alma T-Strap Pump $209.95 Endless.com
C) Guess Arabella pump $74.99 Lovemyshoes.com

What I do like about OneHanesPlace.com is that they are one of the most popular online stores for Ladies undergarments in the United States as over 90% of their online customers are Ladies from the United States. What the average Lady will also like about OneHanesPlace.com is that they definitely have an excellent selection of bras, panties, hosiery, shapewear and bathing suits all at very affordable prices.
