An Evolution of Style

Beyond the glamour of traveling to exotic locations and meeting new people, flight attendant uniforms also defined their alluring status. Every airline had a signature uniform to identify itself among its competition, and many had both a summer and a winter version. However, their polished and elegant attire was often more visually appealing than practical or comfortable.

Although cultural and regional differences had a significant impact on the design of uniforms, the ideals associated with certain time periods also gave an accurate picture of the progression of flight attendant uniforms.
