1930s women’s suit and coat styles

Flattr this!

This entry is part 17 of 17 in the series 1935 Chicago Mail Order Company Catalog

Blue seems to be very much in style for womens suits and coats in 1935! Tailored and neat, only $5.98 for a blue tweed coat, skirt, and vestee. The matching hat, which came in 3 modes, could be bought for only 77 cents. Also advertised was a cotton waffle cloth summer jacket, a caped coat of treebark crepe, ascot scarves, and pretty much every thing made of crepe or tweed! “Stout sizes 37-53 bust” – what a much more flattering way to size than by the waist! Sporty suits were definitely in style in the mid 1930s!

About The Author

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
