An ever-changing cast of concerns factors into how we dress on a given day—our mood, the weather, how much time we have to get ready, where we’re going, who we expect to see.

A New York Times Bestseller. Through original interviews, conversations, surveys, projects and drawings from over six hundred contributors – including Miranda July, Cindy Sherman, Elif Batuman, Mac McClelland, Lena Dunham, Molly Ringwald, Tavi Gevinson, Rachel Kushner, Roxane Gay and Sarah Nicole Prickett – Women in Clothes explores the wide range of motives that inform how women present themselves through clothes, and what style really means.
