1940’s fancy dress outfits are often based around uniforms from World War II, which is as you might expect considering that the war took up half the decade.
However, it does not necessarily mean that your 1940’s fancy dress costume needs to be that of a British Tommy or a German SS Officer. Instead, there are many other 1940’s fancy dress costumes for you to choose from, which are only loosely based on the World War II theme.
The Adult Home-guard Costume is a perfect example of 1940’s fancy dress, which is based around a khaki coloured jacket and a pair of matching khaki trousers.
The 40’s fancy dress costumes also feature metallic gold buttons, faux pockets, military ribbon detailing and an attached khaki belt with a metallic gold buckle.
Also included with these great forties fancy dress outfits is a coordinating hat with gold buttons across the front.
