What Dress Makes of Us

What Dress Makes of Us by Dorothy Quigley

In "What Dress Makes of Us," Dorothy Quigley explores the intricate relationship between fashion and identity, delving into the ways that our clothing choices not only shape how others perceive us, but also influence our own sense of self. Quigley deftly weaves together historical anecdotes, psychological insights, and personal reflections to illustrate the transformative power of dress.

One of the standout aspects of the book is Quigley's ability to connect the dots between societal norms, cultural trends, and individual expression. She argues that our clothing preferences are not arbitrary, but are deeply ingrained in our social conditioning and personal experiences. By examining the historical evolution of fashion and its intersection with gender, class, and race, Quigley prompts readers to consider how their own sartorial choices are informed by larger societal forces.

Moreover, Quigley emphasizes the importance of intentionality in dressing, encouraging readers to think critically about the messages they wish to convey through their clothing. She challenges the notion that fashion is frivolous or superficial, instead positing it as a powerful tool for self-expression and empowerment.

Overall, "What Dress Makes of Us" is a thought-provoking and insightful exploration of the ways that clothing shapes our perceptions of ourselves and others. Quigley's blend of academic research and personal anecdotes makes for a compelling read that will resonate with anyone interested in the intersection of fashion and identity.
