Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
InStyle magazine hit newstands in 1994, committed to celebrity lifestyle, and gets most of the credit (or blame) for the current obsession with celebrities: where they live, where they vacation, what they eat, what they buy and especially what they wear. One of InStyle's most popular sections is "The Look" pages of celebrity photos shot at fabulous parties and award events, with captions crediting their designer duds. But along the way, InStyle also became a premier fashion magazine, with the idea of bringing the fabulous to the many. This book by the editors offers a season-by-season guide to dressing well in all situations and being, well, in style. The coverage is entertaining, with much-photographed women like Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz, Oprah and Jennifer Aniston providing examples for "know your own shape" (Are you slender and petite like Eva Longoria? Small-busted like Kate Hudson?) and how best to dress for your age (68-year-old-Jane Fonda showing how it's done for her decade). There are sections on editing your wardrobe, putting outfits together, essential lingerie, checklists and worksheets, and even an index of stores throughout the country. The result is a terrific-looking book with helpful hints in a useful and entertaining format, a perfect encapsulation of everything the magazine does month after month.

This book helps you find your own style while building a basic wardrobe that will fit into anyone's lifestyle & budget. There is advise in this book from coats, to underwear, accessories, clothing, purses, anything you need help on, this book will answer. I wish I would have had a book like this when I was a young teenager.

As a big fan of fashion, the BBC What Not to Wear girls, as well as Stacy and Clinton from What Not to Wear on TLC, this book has them all beat. It is not broken down into enough body types, but that is the only gripe. It shows you tons of different styles for summer and winter, as well as evening, types of shoes, what to pack when going away, and undergarments. It shows one piece of clothing shown four ways - a skirt four ways, a button down shirt four ways, etc., which is what lots of us need. We buy a piece and then can only think of one thing to do with it. The best part to me is that every item's brand is listed in the back of the book, as well as websites for great clothing. I have actually revamped my own wardrobe with this book without spending a dime, and have at least seven new outfits that I never would have thought of putting together!

I bought this book today and love the in-depth, clear, and economical advice it offers toward building a wardrobe and accessories. Every body type, situation (casual, career, dress, etc.), and budget is covered. I was especially pleased that it was created for the average woman, and doesn't recommend expensive designer names that I can't afford. For someone who has little to no fashion sense, it's been a great help already.
