The Best 1940 Costumes Ideas

The 1940s is most widely remembered for World War II and its ramifications as one of the greatest human conflicts in history. America was at war and a national campaign was on to boost morale both for the troops overseas and for the families pulling up the slack at home. Rosie the Riveter became a fictional icon of United States culture, representing the six million women who entered the workplace for the first time to replace the jobs of men now serving in a branch of the military. Rosie let women know “We Can Do It!” and the popular image of her flexing a bicep in a denim shirt and red polka dot scarf is an indelible image of the era.

Swingand big band music were at the top of the charts and girls and their guys on leave loved to dance the night away at marathon dance-offs.
