To my mind, and from my experience, they distill down to four: volume, precision, elaboration, and decoration.
I bring this up to show you how deeply ingrained all this stuff is. We work with, for, and against this every single day, all day long. We might bridle at it, many of us do, me included. But trying to pretend it isn't there, is as foolish as trying to ignore racism, sexism, or classism. We are, ultimately the product of our evolution. We do have the power to move away from old notions of what is right, wrong, and socially mete; but its tough work, and we must be diligent, or we backslide.
As much as we like to think we are leaving aside a lot of old ideas, we are putting in their place many others that are just as damaging. Why needs a woman to be a sample size to be beautiful? Why should a man have a body made of rock to be hot? Why is white better? Why is young better? Why is straight hair better than curly? Why are blue eyes better than brown? Why is taller better than shorter? Endless other discussions and posts could work on these questions, perhaps without a realistic end point. In fact, they have.
All these are questions that affect and inform how the Attire language changes, and the apparel words we get presented to us for our use. What gets made by the apparel industry is no more or less than what we envision we want to be. Sure, they do drag us by the nose to a small degree, but in the end if they are wrong, no one buys what they present. The result is that they have become very good indeed at foretelling what we think we want.
