I must confess; I’d never read a ‘style book’ before last Christmas!
Sure, I’d leafed through a couple and gawked at pictures, but I never really took the time to actually read one from cover to cover.
I got Amanda Brooks’ style book; I ♥ Your Style: How to Define and Refine Your Personal Style as a Christmas present.
And I must say that I really liked it; it’s simple, communicative with basic helpful tips.
There are a lot of photos, and the styles are broken down in a way that makes them practicable.
I liked that it didn’t have a list of fashion dos and don’ts; rather it encourages developing personal style.
The text is simple, straight forward and classic, with many lovely pictures from various decades.
Six styles types are defined in the book; Classic, Bohemian, Minimal, Street, High Fashion and Eclectic.
With each type are pictures of style icons, and suggestions on how to make that look your own.
There are also tips on shopping from vintage to basic.
This book talks in simple terms how to find your personal style, make it interesting and love it.
It’s a short and easy read with nice classic and vintage pictures.
