Best Answer

Shorter skirts, swimming suits, work clothes, etc. Women started to wear less clothing on swimming suits, and skirts became shorter because it costed less and money was tight in the 1940s. Work clothes turned into nothing more than the army clothing soldiers wore in the war. Also, leather and T-shirts became very popular in the 1940s.
