The 1930s are a decade which haven’t really had a popular revival in the same way that the other decades of the 20th Century have. Pretty much anyone can tell you what a 1920s flapper looked like, or a 1950s circle skirt or a 1960s Mary Quant mini dress but quite often if you mention 1930s fashions people just look a little blank.
I was very much the same until I started writing this blog, but the 1930s have since become one of my favourite decades because everything was just so chic and elegant. Things were toned down from the scandalous 1920s, and were yet to be affected by the austerity of war, so life was good, the fashions were flattering and people have never looked more stylish.
That’s what I think anyway. What’s your favourite style decade?
*yes, I know there are 6 photos here, but the one of the gentleman in his bathing suit is actually late 1920s so I can’t really use that to prove my point 😉
