1940s Inspired Prom Dress at Unique-Vintage.com

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. Read about the history of formal gowns in the 1940s here. 

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.
