The first in-flight hostesses during the 1930s and 1940s wore military-inspired skirt suits in bland hues with white gloves and matching hats. Femininity and glamor took reigns in the 1950s and 1960s, with bouffants, pillbox hats, and funky mod looks making waves. The 1970s welcomed bright colors, psychedelic patterns, and a time when short skirts and Go-go boots were not uncommon to see walking the aisle with refreshments.
