- After the market crash, people had little to no money to spend on new fads, but stamp collecting was popular
- Dancing was still quite popular, due to the fact that it costed nothing. People loved to dance the Jitterbug and the Lindy Hop
- Men's fashions were more casual. They typically wore old shirts, jeans, leather boots and hats.- Considering the amount of poverty at this time, it was considered attractive for women to be curvy again.- During this time, women's fashion was: V-shaped necklines, ankle length skirts or dresses, layered and/or ruffled skirts or dresses, velvet fabric, balloon sleeves, fur (very useful, since many people were homeless and cold), pillbox hats, longer (but still short) curly hair.
