The dropped-waist lines and straight “male” looks of the 1920s were replaced with ultra-femininity and attention to a sexy, female shape and form. Knee-length skirt suits, shoulder pads, fur and ornate hats were worn at an angle were all the rage. Clingy, long, evening gowns, were popular. 1932 saw the pantsuit for women, which was considered by many to be outrageous.
For men, the waistcoat fell out of fashion and they wore three-piece suits for formal occasions. Slipovers, cardigans, jumpers, and soft collared, open-neck shirts were popular for casual wear. The future uncrowned King Edward 8th, Prince of Wales, made jumpers and cardigans fashionable. Wide trousers with turn-ups were popular.
