I'm writting thesis on metaphors in English connected with clothing.
I've just got stuck and I'm looking for some inspiration. I would be delighted if someone could help me or inspire me with some observations.
I look for words or pieces of clothing which are used to describe people or some items, also metonymic expressions.
I look for expressions in which boundaries between the domains of HUMAN BEINGS and CLOTHES become very fuzzy.
I found some examples in English like for example 'white-collar worker' or 'skirt; with reference to an attractive woman.
I think that that would be easier for an native speaker to find more such expressions with refference to people.
It's quite urgent, thank you for any ideas.
