Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/16/2013
If Rothman has one thing to prove in her book on career dressing, it’s that fashion in the workplace still has rules. For example, if a man is wearing a suit: “Your jacket collar should sit flush against your dress shirt’s collar, revealing one half inch of your dress shirt (collar) in the back.” Observe these rules, or find yourself running in place career-wise, the author cautions. Rothman promotes a conservative and safe approach for men and women. For the fashion-blind, the author outlines dress codes across industries and regions—many Washington, D.C., residents “still think black is a color to be worn only in funerals.” She covers grooming basics and accessories, but her best chapter is “Shop Your Closet,” in which she provides advice on editing and organizing an existing wardrobe. The author has a fashionista’s cattiness—castigating “skin belts,” “muffin tops,” and “back cleavage,” and noting similar problems for men. However, Rothman’s focus on career dressing will enable the sartorially confused to get dressed every morning as they head out to the job, and may help them look better on weekends, too. Agent: Ron Goldfarb and Gerrie Sturman, Goldfarb & Associates. (Oct.)

    Style Bible is a well written, helpful, and empathetic tome, chock-full of tips for both male and female professionals. Far from being judgmental, Lauren's writing style is humorous, and understanding of the strengths and faults of normal folks just trying to get dressed everyday. Actually I appreciate the assistance - as a guy who likes to follow a structured formula each morning, I can incorporate much of Lauren's guidance easily. Great book and I truly enjoyed it! Also, as a male reader who has read both the ACTUAL BOOK as well as the recent piece in the Huffington Post, I must say that whomever actually wrote the article doesn't do Lauren justice and seems to misinterpret Lauren's message.

    This book is a great help to hard-working men and women, who don't always have the time for a professional grooming session. Style Bible touches on a number of personal image topics in a sensitive manner and gives practical tips in a humorous way. Great book to share with young people just starting out in the work force.

    I highly recommend Style Bible for women (and men!) fifty years

    I highly recommend Style Bible for women (and men!) fifty years plus young. WIth many of us staying in the workforce for longer periods,  dressing appropriately in a world of changing professional styles can sometimes be a challenge. Lauren's book offers advice that is easy to follow and supportive in tone. Many of my friends have purchased the book and carry Lauren's guidance with them as they shop. Style Bible is an interesting read from cover to cover or as a handy reference guide.

    Sorry I have chest and body hair and a receded hairline.  If only I had read this invaluable tome first I'm sure I'd be just perfect/

    I'm buying 20 copies to give to all of my middle-aged male friends.  Thank you for saving my life and marriage, Lauren!

    Saw her attention grabbing article on HuffPost. It was a ridiculous piece of body shaming. If the advice in this book is on par with that article, no one should read it. Ever.
