    Perfect follow up to the orginal

    The book's title really says it all. It features chapters on 10 different iconic styles, Euro Chic, California Casual, Rock and Roll, Posh Eclectic, Mod, American Classic, Bombshell, Bohemian, Arty Slick, and Gamine plus a chapter at the end that has outfits that are combinations of styles. The chapters start out by giving a list of pieces the authors feel are essential to that look, then they give advice on how to wear a few of them. Each chapter also includes the 'putting it together' page that gives outfits featuring the essentials from that style, the 'all year long' page which gives an outfit for each season using one of the essential pieces from that look, and the 'one piece two ways' page which I think is self explanatory. My favorite new feature is the list of stores and e-commerce sites in each chapter. I wouldn¿t recommend this book if you are brand new to fashion as it doesn't have any fit or shape flattery information. However, if you loved the first one or want to enhance and expand on your look this is a great book. I gave it four stars because I would have liked the combining styles section to be bigger as that's what I think most women do.

    It's Style for Dummies. Trust me, I would know.

    It's a great book, perfect for anyone who knows about the basics, but lacking a specific style. It teaches you how to wear the looks,and the best pieces for the looks. I think if you are new to fashion you would be better off with the Lucky Shopping Manual, though.
