1940s


With the onset of World War II, 1940s fashion tightened its collective belt and moved away from the flowing styles of the ‘30s. Designers economized on both fabric and trim, resulting in cleaner lines and more practical garments. Quintessential elements of ‘40s style include Peter Pan collars, fitted suits and lots of pants.

Here’s more about the vintage-inspired elements we’ve updated for the 1940s collection at Unique Vintage.

Menswear Matters

With so many men away at war, women took up the charge of keeping our factories and other businesses running. The practical clothes required for work influenced 1940s clothes in all spheres, bringing menswear style into many women’s wardrobes.

From wide-leg suspender pants to sailor-inspired trousers to stylish denim overalls, the 1940s vintage-inspired collection at Unique Vintage brings you updated menswear styles to channel your inner Marlene Dietrich in gender-blurring fashion.

Pin-Up Power

Soldiers tacked up posters of their favorite movie starlets in their barracks for war-time inspiration, creating the so-called pin-up girls who influenced 1940s fashion. From Rita Hayworth to Veronica Lake, these beauties modeled femininity with long hair and body-conscious dresses hugging their voluptuous curves.

Our 1940s collection includes wiggle dresses, peplum skirts and swing dresses to complement your take on the powerfully feminine pin-up look. Every piece accessorizes like a dream for dazzling outfit options to line your wardrobe with. Loyal Looks

1940s vintage clothing also brings patriotism to runway looks, stemming from the overwhelming attitude of loyalty to our boys at war. It can be as simple as a red and white striped blouse paired with navy blue sailor pants or as sweet as a blue floral print swing dress and red T-strap heels. Whatever your take on patriotic expression, the 1940s collection at Unique Vintage has the dresses and separates to take your look of loyalty to the next level.
