Since it’s definitely hit winter weather here in NZ I thought you might enjoy some fashion inspiration for Winter 1931.
These are from the August 1931 edition of The Mirror (because, of course, August is definitely winter in NZ!)
First, some rather delicious coats, as they were ‘Favoured in Paris’:
#1 is a three-quarter ensemble in checked wool, trimmed with beige astrakhan (blech).
#2 is “the new collarless tailored coat in tweed jersey.’ Looks, and sounds, very wearable indeed!
#3 ‘The tunic coat…in navy serge trimmed with persian lamb’ (i.e. astrakhan by another name, still blech).
#4 ‘The loose bolero coat, in black velvet, worn with a tweed or checked skirt’. So fabulous, and also so very modern – nothing new in fashion at all!
And to go with your chic coats, a lovely selection of blouses:
