Foyle's War is one of my favourite television shows, set during and after World War Two and moving into the Cold War. Today I would like to share with you some of the outfits and style of Sam Stewart, played by the lovely Honeysuckle Weeks. Sam is the driver to Chief Superintendent Foyle and helps out with the police work. She's very spirited and practical but one of my most favourite things about the character is the way she looks. She consistently sports an understated and elegant casual style from top to toe, and she is one of my ultimate 1940s style crushes.
Her hair looks fab in both these photos and I really love the ease and simplicity of these casual outfits. I really must get a couple of plain 40s style blouses like she's wearing, I feel like they would become instant staples in my wardrobe.
Her accessories in these photos are great. Her hat in particular catches my eye.
Here is another appearance of the hat to top off a lovely everyday 40s outfit.
Her cardigan and dress combo here is perfect. I love how the red pattern on the edge of the cardigan matches the dress.
A wonderful suit here and her shoes and scarf deserve a mention too...
Her hair here is lovely again. It's a little similar to how I do mine for everyday but the combs are higher up in her hair and it has that gorgeous swoop at the front.
If you haven't seen the programme I'd definitely try and catch it if you can. I am so happy that period police dramas are a thing that exist. I'm not sure what countries the show is available in (definitely the UK and I think also America but not sure where else!) but if you can get it on the internet or whatnot then it's worth it.
