For this week's Sunday Style Inspiration I thought I'd bring you some terribly stylish illustrations from my 1940s magazine collection.
Turquoise sailor dress and matching turquoise turban hat? Win.
Possibly the most stylish landgirl ever, in red and pear gingham puff shoulder shirt dress and matching headscarf.
I dream of being able to recreate this hairstyle.
Adorable red and white polka dot blouse with waist ties and matching hair bow, worn with white shorts and what looks like a floral bracelet. Love.
A simple white dress with an opulent (embroidered? printed) sequinned floral design blazing across the bodice.
I don't know whether this would be a blouse or detachable contrast cuffs and dickey insert on a day dress. Either way, it's fabulous - and the pompadour hairstyle is amazing too!
I've featured this to-die-for leopard print ensemble before, way back when, but it's so awesome I think it bears seeing twice!
Loving the double peplum and little crescent shaped clutch.
The tie-side peplum is interesting here, and the triple-layered sleeves.
Red beret with a rhinestone pin, and red and white spotted neckscarf brighten a camel coat.
I'm in love with the entire outfit the lady on the left is wearing: That neckline is to die for, and the plumed hat, and her little pearl necklace, black gloves and parasol/umbrella just complete the look.
