Welcome to Jolique, a website that explores dress and culture across space and time. Jolique looks at dress as a form of communication—a language—that is filled with multi-faceted meanings about where we come from, who we are and who we want to be.

Each week we try to decode this language by researching and publishing articles that offer answers to your burning questions, such as: Why do we wear neckties? and What on earth is a codpiece? Although the answers may shock and surprise, they are guaranteed to provide lively conversation at cocktail parties!
