Robin Givhan deftly parsed would-be First Lady Callista Gingrich’s “prissy” style for the Daily Beast yesterday. Let’s face it: people—especially women, who are generally more aware of how clothes telegraph messages—make judgments based on what other people are wearing and how they do their hair. Sometimes they’re wrong, sometimes they are altered or expanded upon later—but it’s disingenuous to suggest that this shouldn’t be a valid topic of conversation for a style writer. How we style ourselves (or don’t) is generally a reflection of who we are as well as a statement of who we think we are. It can say a lot or a little—but it says something.
