Well, many wore the standard ‘B’ or ‘A’ suit. Many men also wore slacks and a tie, the latter being very popular amongst the upper classes. For some of us men wore ties with tiaras and hats – although in most cases, men were much more likely to leave the shoes alone. Most men had at least one pair of trousers in the 1930s and 1940s. We know that women wore trousers in the 1930s too. Men wore slacks and shirts while women in those days were wearing trousers as they were fashionable during the 1890s. Most men had at least one pair of suit trousers by this time.

As for women, they would wear a skirt or something similar to cover their shoulders.

There are a number of terms that people use to describe skirts. Many of the terms may be loosely based on these two types or other examples of skirts:
