What Clothing Did Bonnie and Clyde Wear?

Bonnie Parker wore long skirts, T-strap heels and a cloche-style hat, while Clyde Barrow wore three-piece suits with a tie and fedora. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were American outlaws during the Great Depression and from photographic accounts of the couple, both wore clothing typical of the era.

For the general population during the 1930s, clothing was functional and styles were simple. Clothes were mended and handed down until the items wore out. Farmer’s wives began using flour and feed sack material for children’s dresses and shirts. Ready-to-wear clothing was also available for those that could afford it, and man-made fabric such as rayon was being widely used.
