Your guide to 1940s style costumes: Easy, pretty, and fun
You don’t have to dress up for the Night at the USO Dinner/Dance party at the San Andreas Town Hall, but if you want to really get into the swing of things, women’s fashions from the 1940s are some of the most romantic and flattering silhouettes of all times. From A-line dresses to suits to Rosie the Riveter coveralls, the look is gorgeous and easy to create. A fun day thrifting at the local second hand and vintage shops might net you the perfect dress or a pair of cool shoes, and really, who doesn't need another pair of cool shoes?
Here are some links to help you get ready for A Night at the USO:
The makeup is the easy part.
A victory roll for your hair might be a little more difficult, but so so cool.
Vintagedancer.com has a great dictionary of women’s styles from the 1940s. You’ll be surprised that you might have the same styles in your closet!
Party City costume stores in Elk Grove and Lodi have accessories like boas, gloves, and pinstriped Zoot suites.
