What did people in the 40's-50's dress like?

Report as

They dressed with Class. Men and women wore hats. Women always wore stockings, and went to the Beauty Parlor once a week for their hair and nails. They dressed for success... Now we see people at WalMart in their Pajamas....

I know. It's a disgrace. I remember when we used to get "dressed to fly." It was an honor to be lifted off the ground and go across the country in a plane. Now, you're lucky to even see a women in a dress.

I like to wear a pretty sundress when I fly with nice sandals to match, my Mother is 88 yes old and she always taught me to dress nicely even when we went to the Mall or trying on clothes. And that's what I taught my daughter too... There are times to dress and times to wear jeans and a TShirt, but I still can't figure out the wearing Pajamas to the Grocery Store....

I agree. Like I said under Ladywood, we used to get dressed to fly. Now, you're lucky to see a guy with pants that fit his waist and a women not in PJs. It makes you wonder about the self esteem. Or, rather, it makes me wonder. :? As always, good to see you! :)

Makes me think of West Side Story: When you're a jet you're a jet all the way, from your first cigarette to your last dying day.. When you're a jet let them do what you can you've got brothers around you're a family man...

:) :) I actually like that look. And I think camels over marlboro. Not to take sides because now my husband and I roll our own. .... Yes, the legal type.. ! It's a lot cheaper. But, back to the style. I like it. !!

"Corsets" were in- high waists, pastel colors- just look up pictures on Google.
