Revealing the messages that are unconsciously expressed by personal style choices, a guide to women's clothing covers every element of a wardrobe and offers suggestions on how to appear with the desired effect

Blackwell North Amer
Drawn from academic studies, hundreds of interviews with fashion designers, and years of covering the industry from the inside, Toby Fischer-Mirkin's insightful analyses of the ins and outs of dressing will help you perfect a more timeless sense of dress - or cultivate an entirely new image.
She asserts that the key to the powerful use of clothing begins with understanding the numerous complex and fundamental motives that influence the way we dress and how personal style reflects our sense of self. She explores the distinct symbolism of clothing - how stiff, constructed collars in business signify seriousness, reliability, and strength, while loose, unconstructed collars convey a more easygoing attitude. She interprets fashion fads and trends such as the androgynous look and status symbols. And with great attention to detail, Fischer-Mirkin examines the psychological implications of clothes and accessories, from shoes to hats. She also offers situation-specific best choices for job interviews and social occasions.
