Icons of Women’s Style by Josh Sims

This not a book about stylish female icons, but about the actual clothes that have become icons: the pencil skirt, the trench coat, the twinset, pyjama pants and so on. It comprehensively covers every category of clothing, from outerwear to tops to swimwear and looks at the origins of the particular style and who wore or designed it best.



It’s an informative read and a great source for industry specialists as it has a lovely collection of photos, from the 30s right up to modern times.
