When researching vintage clothing and fashion, one of the best sources is the New York Public Library Digital Image Gallery. You can browse through HUNDREDS of beautiful sketches and illustrations of vintage fashions and really have a better understanding of the trends and fads of a specific era.

Today we are going to be looking at vintage fashion and styles from the 1930s. Our online vintage shop regularly stocks clothing and dresses from the 1930s and most of these styles go fairly quickly. And it's no surprise why, the 1930s was an amazing time for beautifully made and well tailored garments!

One of recurring themes in these styles are the puffed sleeves wether they be short sleeved or elbow length. There is also the appearance of dropped shoulders, draped sleeves, and cape style sleeves. My favorite part about the 1930s silhouette are the bias cut skirts. So incredibly flattering on a woman's figure! I also am very much in love with prints from the 1930s. Just the most charming florals and very elegant and chic deco inspired patterns and textiles.
