In an original and very enjoyable history of fashion, Catherine Horwood uses clothes to shed light on middle-class culture during the interwar years, and presents copious evidence on the links between dress, class and decorum. Among the topics explored are the discreet agencies for buying nearly new gowns or hiring ceremonial garb; the working girl's dilemma of what to wear to the office; the challenge of the beach; and the oddities - radicals, Bohemians and dandies.
