Ever wonder what made peplums such an enduring trend while men’s powdered wigs fell by the wayside? Me too. That’s why I’m obsessing over a new compendium of the history of fashion and costume from the Smithsonian. Titled Fashion; The Definitive History Of Costume and Style, this massive volume covers sartorial trends from the ancient world to today. And it even includes an illustrated glossary of terms. Weighing in at 480 full-color pages, this is the guide for the fashion obsessed. So yes, I’ll be ordering one right now. [$31.17, Amazon]
