As arts librarians arrive at ARLIS conference in Manchester, UK, we take a sneak peek inside to reveal the best in librarian fashion on the ProQuest Pinterest page. Today’s artistic librarians make their bodies their canvases with book-inspired fashion ideas, and creative outfits that bury the "bun-and-sensible-shoes" stereotype once and for all.

For a closer look at fashion in all its forms, take a peek at The Women’s Wear Daily Archive and The Vogue Archive for fashion researchers. You'll see over a century's worth of fashion photographs; articles on beauty tips, social trends, and cultural mores; and the original advertisements.

Wool suit, anyone?
