The article analyses the attributes of the costume in Leo Tolstoy's novel “Anna Karenina”. The polyfunctionality of the costume in the literary work is based on the fact that it is both a thing and a sign, acting as an artistic detail, a mean of expressing the author's attitude to reality, a mean of creating the colour of the historical era, a mean of plotting. The authors of this work prove that costume details in the image of the main character despite the laconism of the description are an important part of Anna's psychological portrait. In addition, through repeated costume detail the authors give mutual evaluation of the characters.
