The Mahwah couple shown above both show how the depression caused fashion to stall a bit. The woman on the left’s dress has a colorful patterned design that is clearly a piece from the 20’s. Clothing made during the 30’s had a very plain design with single fabrics mostly. The man on the right is not wearing the three-piece suit that was prevalent in the 20’s. Instead he is wearing just the shirt and tie. The tie is also a product of the 20’s as that was when there was a move away from the plain style tie to patterned styles.
