KIRKUS REVIEW

An engaging, readable history of clothing. Perl writes with matter-of-fact aplomb about both the events and the human eccentricities that have influenced fashion, integrating into her text anecdotes and asides that should draw even reluctant readers. Skirt lengths, heel heights, headdresses, and trousers are among the garments whose evolution falls under scrutiny. Serviceable, if stiff, illustrations further explore the changes discussed, while historical photos and advertisements add interest. Bibliography; index.
