"Overdressed does for T-shirts and leggings what Fast Food Nation did for burgers and fries." —Katha Pollitt, The Nation columnist


"Elizabeth L. Cline is the Michael Pollan of fashion ... Hysterical levels of sartorial consumption are terrible for the environment, for workers, and even, ironically, for the way we look." —Michelle Goldberg, senior writer for Newsweek/The Daily Beast


"The good news for shoppers, notes Brooklyn journalist Cline in her engagingly pointed, earnestly researched study, is that cheap knockoffs of designer clothing can be found in discount stores almost instantly. The bad news is that “fast fashion” has killed America’s garment industry and wreaked havoc on wages and the environment."—Publisher's Weekly
