By 1948 we had lost that post-WWII military style and were full on new look.
Women wanted a feminine form with flattering tea length skirts and dresses.
But pants and shorts took on a classier look as well.
Casual day dresses although still had the beauty of decades past, had the wonderful shape to flatter any woman's figure.
The more I see of new look, the more I become a fan of it. Yes, I am betraying my love for the war years, but only a little.
