Women in Clothes

Women in Clothes is a book unlike any other. It is essentially a conversation among hundreds of women of all nationalities—famous, anonymous, religious, secular, married, single, young, old—on the subject of clothing, and how the garments we put on every day define and shape our lives.

It began with a survey. The editors composed a list of more than fifty questions designe

It began with a survey. The editors composed a list of more than fifty questions designed to prompt women to think more deeply about their personal style. Writers, activists, and artists including Cindy Sherman, Kim Gordon, Kalpona Akter, Sarah Nicole Prickett, Tavi Gevinson, Miranda July, Roxane Gay, Lena Dunham, and Molly Ringwald answered these questions with photographs, interviews, personal testimonies, and illustrations.

Even our most basic clothing choices can give us confidence, show the connection between our appearance and our habits of mind, express our values and our politics, bond us with our friends, or function as armor or disguise. They are the tools we use to reinvent ourselves and to transform how others see us. Women in Clothes embraces the complexity of women’s style decisions, revealing the sometimes funny, sometimes strange, always thoughtful impulses that influence our daily ritual of getting dressed.

    I guess I was thinking how I’ve been known to give a good rant about the lack of quality in clothing, the preposterous “shoulds” women cling to about what to wear, the ridiculous lengths some people go to to fit in with the fad of the moment, and why the hell anyone would pay more than the average American’s monthly mortgage for a handbag. Since the synopsis said the material was funny and thoughtful, I guess I was thinking it would be funny and thoughtful. Say

    I guess I was thinking how I’ve been known to give a good rant about the lack of quality in clothing, the preposterous “shoulds” women cling to about what to wear, the ridiculous lengths some people go to to fit in with the fad of the moment, and why the hell anyone would pay more than the average American’s monthly mortgage for a handbag. Since the synopsis said the material was funny and thoughtful, I guess I was thinking it would be funny and thoughtful. Say what you do; do what you say.

    The first part of this book–and I’m using the term “book” loosely– starts with Skype call transcripts of some women going on about how they are thinking of writing this book. It’s pretty bizarre, a little like walking into the middle of a bunch of Sex and The City types trying to sound Very Serious and just sounding scattered and shallow. (Admittedly, I was put off by the third time Vogue was mentioned.)

    If you make it past that nonsense, it goes into responses of an extremely long (and almost-but-not-quite hilarious) survey about how Oh So Important (or not) clothes are to women. There are lots of answers, but they aren’t organized very well. And there’s very little data about who these respondents are — their ages, ethnicities, income levels, occupations, etc.

    Maybe it got better, but page after page of what amounted to “I watch other women and copy what I like” and “I think a little gritty is hot,” I got bored out of my mind. When I got to the part where someone makes the analogy that a woman’s purse is an external womb, I was already saying “WTF?” every other page. I made it through 49 pages, which is my rule for giving something a valiant effort.

    If you enjoy eavesdropping on a clique of self-absorbed people who act like they are Speaking Great Truth when talking about leggings and “cute booties,” have at it. I have 350 other things on my to-read list; this silliness just isn’t worth my time.

    (And I literally am going to shelve under sociology because I can’t think of anywhere else to put it. I don’t want to make a “WTF” shelf just for this.)

    “Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than merely to keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world’s view of us.” — Orlando, Virginia Woolf

    This book! Has utterly jumpstarted my year, because it seems to be all I can think and talk about. THIS is the book about women and clothes that I have always been looking for, and I think the editors knew that. Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, and Leanne Shapton say, somewhere in the beginning, that they have been thinking about clothes but not in the way that typical women’s magazines or fashion books assume that they are thinking about clothes. This is a very broad, vast, thoughtful, intentional, weird, and creative book. The editors survey 629 women (from a wide range of ages, races, backgrounds, gender identities) about clothes and why and how they wear them, and present their findings in an innovative and totally riveting way. One very interesting, intentional choice: Women surveyed are never shown or photographed. It’s a fashion book with very, very few photos of clothes. I love it, and I’m totally obsessed (and slightly peeved that the Goodreads rating isn’t higher, because it really ought to be).

    I am still thinking about it, with fervent admiration and attention, even now, and I imagine it will stay with me for a long time. Clothes are important to everyone, even if we act as if our style and our sartorial choices were insignificant. The choices we make never are. To pretend otherwise is foolish.

    I don’t know that I will ever officially finish this book. I am checking in now to say that while I am enjoying picking through it for meaningful and coherent bits, it is a conceptual and aesthetic/design mess. How could a book on style have so little of it? The experience of reading this book is like finding a researcher’s file cabinet full of random folders of interviews, sitting down with a cup of coffee and a pile of those folders at your side and sifting through them. It is in desperate nee
