Hello, and welcome to Just Answer.

A formal gown, with a satiny top and velvet or satin skirt would be appropriate for a woman and you can get an idea of different types of gowns worn for formalwear, here:

You can see other types of vintage women's clothing, shoes and accessories from the 1930's, here, to get a better idea, and then comb your vintage boutiques and/or department stores for a similar 'look': http://www.vintagedancer.com/1930s/1930s-fashion/
