During WWII, the hankie played an important role in fashion. In addition to eschewing silk stockings so our troops could have parachutes, women would forego the pleasure of a new hat or blouse, and instead opt for a "wardrobe" of handkerchiefs. Everywhere you looked, hankies could be seen peeking from breast pockets or draped over a belt as a fashion accessory.
