1940’s style prom dresses, formal dresses and evening gowns are new dresses with plenty of 1940’s fashion inspiration. Perfect for special occasions with a vintage theme.
Authentic 1940’s dresses were long with layers of chiffon hanging down from the empire waist. A matching bolero jacket was sometimes worn over the prom dresses. Teenagers preferred pastel and jewel tone colors. Sequins and beads added a bit of sparkle around the waist bodice and straps. Many formal dresses embrace the classic a- line silhouette made popular in the 1940s.
For an old Hollywood or inspired 40’s look consider pin up dresses. These prom dresses create a vintage vixen look that show of curves in the most flattering ways.
