Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bari’s entertaining and wide-ranging overview reminds us of how deeply woven they are into the stuff of literature, movies, art, mythology and even sports.” Wall Street Journal
“Although [Bari’s] writing is critically informed…her tone is insistently personal, intimate.” The Guardian (London)
“Lively, entertaining, and provocative readings of clothes in our daily lives and in culture more widely…Bari tells us throughout Dressed, we should look to embrace our personal style and give dress the attention it deserves.” Times Literary Supplement (London)
“Irresistible…Dressed is an argument for taking apparently frivolous things seriously.” Literary Review
“This intensive investigation into the meaning of clothes in literature, film, art and every life (un)packs a wallop.” Shelf Awareness
“Devoted fashion students will eagerly eat up every word of Bari’s well-researched and passionate work.” Publishers Weekly
