This paper analyzes the history of the study of vocabulary of clothes and jewelry in studies of Turkic languages. The vocabulary of of clothes and jewelry of every nation is closely connected with its history, culture and ethnography. Moreover, the names of clothes and jewelry are the most important historical source for the study of the nation’s origin and its development, a contact with other ethnic groups because in every historical epoch every nation has developed its own system of fashion, an important element of which is clothes and jewelry. The actual material shows that the composition of the vocabulary of clothes and jewelry consists not only of its own words, but also foreign borrowings. Therefore, having studied the vocabulary formation it is possible to find out early Turkic contacts with the rest the world. From ancient times these thematic groups of the lexical structure of the language were the subject of a research focus of scientists from different branches of science. Resources and scientific literature review on the study of culture, ethnography and language of Turkic peoples shows that lexical items, included in these thematic groups, occupy an important part of the vocabulary of Turkic languages. It is no coincidence that studies both of a linguistic character and humanities areas is the object of our analytical review.
