35 Vintage Found Photos Show What People Wore in the 1930s

Fashion in the 1930s was characterized by elegance, glamour, and sophistication. Women's fashion included bias-cut dresses that accentuated the natural curves of the body, often made of luxurious fabrics like silk or satin. Hemlines were typically longer, reaching the mid-calf or ankle. Accessories like gloves, hats, and jewelry were popular to complete the look.

For men, suits were the norm, with wide lapels and high-waisted trousers. Double-breasted suits were fashionable, and pinstripes were a common pattern. Hats, such as fedoras or flat caps, were essential accessories, and shoes were typically polished and well-crafted.

Overall, the style of the 1930s reflected the influence of Hollywood glamour and the desire for sophistication despite the economic challenges of the Great Depression. These vintage photos were found by Alex Clymans that show what people wore in the 1930s.

  1. I wonder how many of these people were eventually shipped off to the Nazi death camps?
