1930s gangster chic for girls

Oh how I love this outfit! It’s so chic and Garbo-esque! I love the tilt of the hat, the sharp masculine tailoring, the bold pinstripes, it’s gorgeous! The girl is actress and movie star Lilli Palmer from a promo photo in 1936. Doesn’t she look amazing? I only wish we could see the rest of the outfit, do you think it was a trouser suit, or with a skirt?
