The Zoot Suit was the height of fashion among daring young men until the War Department restricted the amount of fabric that could be used. The same restrictions led to the popularity of the women's convertible suit, a jacket, short skirt, and blouse.
When the war and it's restrictions ended, Christian Dior introduced the New Look, feminine dresses with long, full skirts, and tight waists. Comfortable, low-heeled shoes were forsaken for high heels.
