Christian Dior's New Look, 1947. As a reaction to the rationing of World War II the new look, using many metres of fabric, came into fashion. It was a return to the classic feminine shape, emphasising the bust and hips, with a tiny waist. I love how glamorous this looks with the tiny jacket and voluminous skirt.
1940s Weekender Dress - takes inspiration from the late 1940s styles. This dress hails the New Look with its fuller skirt (though still not as full as the 50s) and details such as its raised collar and 10 individual hand stitched buttons down to the waist.
For those of you that aren't familiar with putting outfits together, this make look too well done at first look. But look closer, it's actually soooo easy. 3 easy pieces you may have in your closet right now. Yessss!! (LYC-by jax)
