Who watched the first part of the BBC’s drama Dancing On The Edge? If you did you’ll know just how amazing the 1930s fashion looked (and if you didn’t, well you’re in the right place…)

Images from Dancing On The Edge – drama set in the 1930s with beautiful costumes…

As you can see from above, the dresses in the early 1930s were very simple in shape yet also very glam indeed. Feminine, slim-lined and long in length they spell pure elegance. I particularly like the red dress with the lacing and the long sleeves (I do love a sleeve). I’m also liking the hair styling (get the rollers out) and the strong lip (a current look too).


If you fancy rocking up to a wedding or an evening out looking all 30s diva you’ll find loads of maxi length dresses on the High Street. Here are a few below. Oh, and if you need some hair and make-up tips, tutorials and/or inspiration take a squizz at YouTube.
