These two books look useful. They have pictures (paintings & drawings) arranged by year/decade, that show what someone is wearing (as on the cover) and the accompanying descriptions are fairly detailed, and broken up in Head, Body & Accessories. So you can see what real people (as opposed to fashion models) where wearing at a particular time and find out the right names for things. Which is Really Useful.

The smaller book covers the 19th century and the larger ones is 1300 to 1984. Despite the different authors & format, they're related, Some of the entries for book 1 are book 2, but not as many because it doesn't cover each centruy is as much detail.
