October 1930 - Good Housekeeping Fashion Images 4
Intricately fashion designed close hip hugging true bias
skirts, fur trims and white contrast collars and cuffs were a feature of
female clothes of the 1930s.
Parisian wool tailored street suits and dresses in heavy
dark green crepe marocain (a crepe fabric with weft ribs) or green wool
plaids and fur/ermine trimmings were though perfect for autumnal attire
about town. The article confirmed the new silhouette as being
longer in length and with the waist firmly in its correct position. The
dithering of the 1920s waist had gone.
The pages above stated that suits adopt coats for various
sports and that the coat could be longer or shorter, but that longer
styles would probably be more stylish. These suits and coats were
considered perfect for watching polo or lunching at the country club as
were tweeds and duo toned wools with lilac, black and grey all
mentioned. For evening the look was ankle length and empire line.
