In chapter 2 of "The Great Gatsby," Fitzgerald introduces Myrtle as a working-class woman obsessed with the upper-class way of life. When Nick and Tom visit George Wilson's garage on the edge of the valley of ashes; Myrtle is dressed in a “dark blue crepe-de-chine” (Fitzgerald 25), that reveals her “perceptible vitality about her as if the nerves of her body were continually smoldering” (Fitzgerald 25). While in this attire, Myrtle emerges as a sensual and vital woman who is uncomfortable with the struggles of the poor working class. While on the train ride to Manhattan, she is adorned in a brown dress that significantly reveals her curves. Sometimes upon her arrival in the apartment, Myrtle changes into an elaborate afternoon dress. Although the change of attires may pass as a routine, it, however, signifies Myrtle's desire for change owing that the change of clothing is accompanied by character transformation.
