The following do what you suggest for broad time periods. I've given
URLs for where each appears on Amazon so you can get full citations
information to aid in hunting them down--not because I'm plugging Amazon.
The Costume Timeline (cheap, and consists almost entirely of colored
drawings; it's out of print);
Fashion (new book by DK Publishing, with some kind of Smithsonian
tie-in). This one uses period art to illustrate fashions for the most
part, but it covers most of recorded history worldwide so it's not very
detailed for SCA period either, though it's otherwise quite a good
For greater detail and for SCA periods, I suggest Jane Ashelford's
Visual History of Costume Books. I believe there's one for each century
from the 14th/15th to the 20th, and there's also a one-volume version
for that entire period done by Aileen Ribiero and Valerie Cumming:
The Visual History books are also illustrated with period art, and have
useful descriptive captions.
