I also watched the BBC series Land Girls which helped me to get an understanding of the ww2 fashions.
To create the WW2 style, I chose the colour palette of brown and black because of the rationing in the 40's which meant there was little colour. I love the brown velvet shorts, which I picked up in a vintage shop in Leeds, because I think that they reflect the Land Girl uniform which was synonymous with the working women of the 40's. I chose a black loose fitting jacket to match the 'manly' style of the women finished with a gold brooch. To bring the outfit up to date I chose a slouchy, slogan tee and to pull the colours together, black tights and black platforms.
