1940s


Fashion took a turn toward simplification in the 1940s, due in large part to fabric restrictions enforced because of the war. Creative, stylish women didn’t let those hard times get in the way of looking fabulous, though — in fact, Unique Vintage carries a large selection of dresses, tailored suits and hair accessories inspired by this iconic decade.

If you love to show off your feminine figure, Unique Vintage’s pencil dresses will help you to do just that, dear. Dresses took on a much slimmer, more form-fitting shape in the 1940s, and we carry a wide assortment of these curve-hugging frocks in floral prints, polka dot patterns and bold, primary colors. Rounded toe pumps and cork platform wedges even offer a bit of ‘40s style to your footwear choices, and a matching hat for the daytime completes the tailored yet feminine look.

Channel old school film starlets like Bette Davis when you shop Unique Vintage’s put-together 1940s fashion at prices that will make you swoon!
