Military fallout on fashion

As Miss Universe knows, fashion changes with the times. And about seventy years ago, World War II impacted nearly every aspect of daily life for millions of people. With textile rationing introduced in 1941, and women entering military service, the war years even changed the way people dressed.

World War II had a dramatic influence on fashion.

Women who were recruited into military service jobs, dressed in uniforms for work.

And in the United States, more than 150-thousand women served in the Women's Army Corps.

They worked in highly skilled jobs, and excelled as mechanics and radio operators.

It took the general public a while to accept the concept of women in uniform, but by 1940, military style had found its way into the fashion of the time.

In the UK, more than a million women joined the Women's Voluntary Service, which was formed to support civil defense.

Some of their uniforms are still kept in the costume storage of the Museum of London.

During the war, wool had become scarce in Britain. So, in order to prevent fabric from being wasted, the government introduced utility clothing in 1941.

Clothes were to be simple, plain, and practical.
