The Style for Women of 1940
Some women of 1940 did have military positions. Not necessarily in battle, but they did serve their country within certain branches. Our first model is wearing the colors of the Navy. The Navy uniform for women of 1940 consisted of a light blue collared shirt with a navy blue jacket. Women of 1940 who served the Air Force work an all black uniform that consisted of a jacket and slacks.
Other aspects of the 1940s style are more luxurious for women. The model directly below is wearing a white fur shawl. The second image is modeling a woman in a white collared blouse that was typical for women of 1940 to wear.
