    "in the 1940s, silhouettes were austere but curls and bright lipstick kept the look feminine.Women 's dresses were knee-length and featured padded shoulders. Closhing was simple thanks to wartime rationing. Homemade accessories and elaborate curls were the trend. Hats were made from fabrics recycled from older pieces.
    With the war over , Paris designers pioneered the more romantic New Look."
