1930's

Hit hard by the Depression, clothes lost the playfulness of the Twenties.  Morals were reined in and women's clothes became more mannish.  Suits became more popular for day wear and evening gowns were sleek and more form fitting than ever before.  In men's apparel, suits were very similar to today's styles.  Commonly plaid and pinstriped, suits sported wide lapels and double breasted suits rose in popularity.  For men, fedoras were most common and women wore turbans and other close fitting hats.  Both evening and day, the rule for dressing was less is more.  Saving fabric meant saving money and saving money was the name of the game.  Costumes By Dusty stock stays true to the originals while maintaining a high quality in fabric choice and design, any foray into Thirties dressing should begin here.
