1930s: Welcoming the bias cut
Today we look up to celebrities and Hollywood stars to inspire us (fashion-wise and sometimes otherwise). The 1930s marked the era when women began to look to up to Hollywood stars as trend-setters. Coco Chanel was still around, but she was considered the rival of the more sophisticated fashion trends that were on the rise. Hats were still very much in fashion, but the cloche hats were replaced with berets and tilt hats.
You can learn about the historical changes of every decade by its fashion trends: while in the twenties, women’s fashion was somewhat more liberated, in the 1930s it was back to sophisticated outwear; the high waist-line was eliminated and women’s waist was back at its natural place, puffed shoulders were the latest rage, and draped dresses as evening wear that featured the bias cut – accentuating the woman’s figure and curves.
