When women were women? 1944.

Just after the 2nd World War womens clothes  showed a masculine influence with huge tailored shoulders, sensible shoes and bags, sober colours and rather extravagant turban-like hats. Hair was generally swept up into a high roll at the front. There wasn't a lot of fabric available in 1944,  but there is already a sign of the  circular skirt with the tiny waist that was to become the signature note of the 1950s. In 1944 women are looking sensible  independent and practical.
