The Language Of Clothes

By Lurie, Alison




The Language of Clothes by Alison Lurie is a classic book about the clothes we wear and what they say about us.

Even before we engage in conversation with someone new, their clothes provide a clue to whom we may be speaking. We can guess their career, financial clout, tastes in music and culture, as well as many subtle details that we unconsciouly observe and use to interact.


Published in 1981, and regularly updated and revised.
