1939 is one of my favourite years for style: War was not quite upon us, and fashion was having fun. Swingy skirts hit at that perfect a-little-below-the-knee length, the extravagant frilliness of the mid-30s had given way to subtler girlish touches, the tilt hat was high in fashion, and bodices were gently shirred and gathered the way I love. It was also a colourful year, and the daring two- and three-way colour combinations suggested in the fall 1939 Sears catalogue are very inspiring.
