A 1930's evening gown.

A classic hair-do.

A longer hairstyle.

Old Hollywood is an aesthetic surrounding the movies, music, and fashion of the 1930's- 1940's. It's meant to draw you into a time before and forget about the current things happening.



Some key pieces to have in your closet should be-

  • Midi length dresses, large collars, puff sleeves, belted waists
  • A long evening gown, backless, deep cut, sleeveless
  • High waisted sailor pants
  • Slouch hats, tilt hats, knit berets
  • Fur boas and jackets
  • Oxford Shoes
  • T-strap and Mary Jane heels
  • Pearl earrings
  • Small Handbags
  • Long gloves
  • Rose gold
  • Tons of makeup
  • Vintage cars
  • 50s dinner

You can get pieces like these from vintage/thrift stores, there are also lots of sewing patterns on Etsy.


  • Lots of waves!
  • Shorter hair is ideal, but you can still have lots of hair-do's with longer hair.
  • Classic finger curls are an amazing look.
  • You can find lots of inspiration from actors at the time.
