fashion in film: The Thin Man (1934)
MGM costume designer Dolly Tree designed Nora Charles’ costumes. Nora Charles wears the typical style from the 1930s, the theatrical collar on her coat and the cuffs, the famous striped party dress with cascading ruffles and the all around uber glamorous style that Nora Charles embodied. The 30s had a knack for creating a bit of whimsy in fashion, and Nora’s outfits all had exaggerated elements in it (like in gif one the collar and the cuffs and six the ruffled jabot and cuffs). She also wore pants like the pants lounging outfit in this set.
