Tied and true!

The second World War took place in the first half of the 1940s which had a profound effect around the world and even the fashion industryDesigners had stop designing from 1939 to 1945 and the government had set limits on how much nylon, wool and other materials that could be purchased.

Women typically wore headscarves and turbans. Rosie the Riveter (pictured above) was the symbol for the working women during the 1940s and many housewives from the 40's and 50's wore the look for domestic reasons.
