Dress in the Age of Jane Austen: Regency Fashion Book Review

Clothes are more than pieces of cloth that cover our naked bodies. They tell us about the culture, the values, the beliefs, etc of a specific time period or people.

Dress in the Age of Jane Austen: Regency Fashion, by Hilary Davidson, was published in 2019. The book explores the specific fashion of the regency era and how it reflected the larger societal changes from 1795 to 1825. Using Jane Austen’s work as a base, Davidson goes into detail about the clothing for various settings, classes, and events.

Anyone who knows me knows that this book is obviously up my alley. Though it is a niche topic, it is a fascinating deep dive into not just this world, but the fashion of the time.

Do I recommend it? Absolutely.

Dress in the Age of Jane Austen: Regency Fashion is available wherever books are sold.
