Did you know that in the 40’s, clothing was sparse so women would do elaborate hairstyles? If you can’t have as many outfits as you would like, you could always change your hair!
Even if you have very little in your wardrobe, find time to do your hair and makeup to at least feel like a vintage pinup. You will get compliments even if you are wearing a work uniform. It will make a difference, I promise.
Add a hair flower, put on some eyeliner and lipstick, or try some victory rolls to attain that look without a whole outfit. Everyone will know what you are going for. Sometimes a good hair day can change/make an outfit.
