About Vintage 1940s Dresses

Relive the most tumultuous decade of the twentieth century by ordering a vintage 1940s dress. In an era when many women fulfilled traditionally male work and family roles, dress designers altered their creations to represent less elegance and more functionality. The Heather Violets Dress exemplified the new roles women played, while their husbands shipped thousands of miles away to Europe and the South Pacific. Constructed with durable rayon, the 1940s vintage dress consisted of tiny purple ribbons that accentuated the simple design of 1940s women clothing.

When attending social events during the chaotic 1940s, women had several elegant dress options to complement their daily wardrobe. The Beatrix Hofdame dress included black ruched beads that define elegance. Another elegant vintage 1940s dress, the Elegant Devotions, became the talk of cocktail parties from Washington to Los Angeles due to the black taffeta button design. You can find an affordable vintage 1940s dress by shopping on eBay.
