Why’d They Wear That?

by Sarah Albee

In this humorous and approachable narrative, kids will learn about outrageous, politically perilous, funky, disgusting, regrettable, and life-threatening creations people have worn throughout the course of human history, all the way up to the present day. Less a “history of fashion” and more about “history through fashion,” the book’s focus is on the historical context in which these fashions occurred. The emphasis is as much on the workers who created the fabrics, dyes, and clothing as on the wealthy people who wore them.
