Overview

It costs us not to look our best!

Dressing poorly costs us interviews, first impressions, money . . . and a whole lot more. But you can look good all the time, asserts Amy E. Goodman, the magazine maven and style expert who’s a regular on NBC’s Today show. Her one-stop fashion and beauty book cuts through the information overload to teach you how to dress to impress whatever your age, lifestyle, or size—while staying true to yourself and your budget.

Who can afford clothes and makeup that don’t fit or flatter? Since every piece needs to count, Amy uses snappy, clear comparisons to show how to regain control of your wardrobe and beauty shelf by simplifying your choices. Cleverly organized like a woman’s closet, wear this, toss that! outlines the 30 pieces of clothing and 30 accessories plus beauty basics every woman must own. Then Amy builds beyond the essentials, walking you through your closet, rack by rack, shelf by shelf, and drawer by drawer, telling you what to wear and what to toss. By sorting through the items you already have and taking inventory of what you need, you can build upon what you own and finally create the winning total look you’ve always dreamed of!

Amy provides immediate style answers for real women:

• 700 wear/toss items

• Over 1,000 product suggestions

• You-heard-it-here-first steals and deals

• On-sale items to avoid regardless of price

• Styling tips for every body type

• The ultimate shoe guide: you’ll never question which footwear is right again!

• 24 “save-me” products to rescue you from any fashion emergency

Filled with candid tips from pro stylists and designers, along with Amy’s unfiltered guidance, wear this, toss that! will inspire you to invest in yourself, shake off the wardrobe blahs, and wake up your looks from head to toe.

Step into your closet. Do you have: A ruffled tank that sweetly frames your faceor a blouse with overpowering ruffles?

A long cardigan that graces over your curves or a super drapey wrap that resembles a blanket?

A pencil skirt that lands just above your knees or a bell skirt that bunches at your middle?

A cropped, straight-leg pant with a flat front or wrinkled, baggy cargo pants?

A shade of red lipstick that says “bombshell” or one that’s says “I’m trying too hard”?

If any of these questions make you cringe, then wear this, toss that! is your go-to guide. It’s for women of any size, age, or lifestyle who realize they just don’t like the clothes, accessories, or makeup they’re wearing and want to make a change. Almost instantly you’ll learn what works, what’s got to go, and why.

    A Keeper

    I read a lot of style self help books (because I need a lot of help & want to keep tweaking myself). Most of them say the same basic things, list the same mandatory items of clothing & have no fresh ideas. I took a chance on this book & plan on rereading it more slowly. It gives solid examples of what not to wear & why - with very clear photos. The clothes are geared to a woman I would describe as fairly normal - professional - upwardly mobile, not crazy expensive designer stuff that I know I never purchase or have the opportunity to wear. The author lists manufacturer of each item, lists other good things to have, other bad things to get rid of & suggests options. It also has a section on grooming & lists products that she likes.If you are a fashionista, perhaps this book would be full of information you already know, but for me, this book has been very helpful.

    Kritters Ramblings

    What an excellent book to read and keep on hand - this is definitely one I am putting on the keep shelf. Although I am pretty good, not excellent, but pretty good and getting rid of clothes that haven't been worn in awhile; I am terrible about the amount of clothes that come in the door (no comment from the peanut gallery). I find something that fits and I assume that I will never see it again, so I order 3 more in different colors or just 3 more. So, I must admit that my closet could use some tossing - especially now that police uniforms are on their way, a little stressed.

    Ok, to review the book and not my closet. A great go to book to determine what should stay and what should be evicted from the closet. I skimmed through the parts that I may already have a handle on, but I spent a lot of time on the beauty section. Sweet and concise, the beauty section was a great overview of what products could be added to your shelf and routine and would could be deleted. Then the accessories, a great section that would help any woman pair down or amp up what they use to beef up their wardrobe and a particular outfit. All in all, this book definitely helped set priorities in my closet and made me want to sit down in it and evaluate the situation.

    A purchase for anyone graduating college and heading into the work world or may be in a style or closet rut. I think everyone could grab a tip or idea from this book.

    Horrible

    This book is like a bad infomercial with links to retail stores. No real useful information, needed pictures and less sales pitch. Definitely not worth 12.99.
