The book is SIMPLE and an easy read.

Joe and Jesse also suggest clipping photos of looks you like, pieces of clothing that catch your eye and to keep a file of these to inspire you.

I have to agree with several of the previous reviewers who fault this book for being "light" on the information. I consider myself average in wardrobe knowledge and I really didn't learn anything new. It wasn't even presented in a particularly insightful manner. Some info was a good reminder, however, but plain stuff, like buying the right type of hangers for your closet.

I didn't appreciate their references to "this designer" or "that designer" when describing looks, because I'm not that familiar with them, and I would guess a large percentage of the American public is in the same boat. They also could use some pictures!! I know it puts the price of the book up, but BOY could they use some pictures (this bears repeating)!!

Save your money or look at this one in a bookstore because it's so short you could read it while standing in the aisles!

I got this book from my mother who thought my wardrobe could use a pick-me-up--I'm a stay at home mom who wears a lot of t-shirts and jeans, but this book changed that. I really thought if I was just schlepping the kids around, I didn't really need to do anything about clothes, until it was Easter and I didn't even have a dress to wear to church. To say the least, I needed help, and I found it here--I took their little test, was surprised by the result, actually, and decided, well, maybe it is time to embrace that bohemian inside me and start looking the part. And it didn't break the bank, either--I'm taking the advice a few pieces at a time. It was fun to read and fun to implement.

I don't know how I cam across this book, but I'm really glad I did. Like a lot of women, I have a ton of clothes, but can never find the right things to wear (except for parties!). This book made me rethink my wardrobe by first helping me define the style I want to project, then weeding out (or editing) my current wardrobe, and finally carefully buying the missing pieces.

After reading this, I realized that I'd been buying a mish-mash of styles, so it was no wonder I had such difficulty in pulling looks together, even though I had some great clothes.

The description of how to build a core wardrobe you can reach for everyday was incredibly helpful to me. I also appreciated how the book's style references were up-to-date.

This book is not geared to any one type of dresser--its lessons are adaptable to professionals, students, home-makers, and everything in-between, and also for a variety of styles (they categorize them as classic, chic, bohemian, avant garde and whimsical). I highly recommend this incredibly helpful book.

I absolutely love this book! After borrowing a copy from my public library and thumbing through it at least 2 dozen times, I'm going to be purchasing my own copy. Of all the wardrobe-styling books I've read (and I own several), this book holds up incredibly well on repeat readings. It's a slim volume but packed with excellent stuff. Do not heed the reviewers who say this is light on information--not true! An uncluttered layout leavened with photos and whimisical pen-and-ink fashion illustrations make for easy yet memorable reading. The boys break dressing down into 5 Fashion Types: Classic, Chic, Whimsical, Bohemian and Avant Garde, providing a quiz and 'case studies' of each type. After helping you determine your Type, they provide valuable tips on organizing a workable and steamlined closet and stocking it with clothing items that meet the "Three Q's": Do I love it? Is it flattering? Does it project the image I want to portray? Their advice is valuable even for women who are heavier and lower on funds than the average fashionista, but in order to get maximum benefit from Joe and Jesse's expertise, it helps to be happy with your current size and have money to spend on quality new clothes. Even so, they almost make cleaning out your closet sound like fun . . .?! For those of us who cannot afford their personal services, purchasing this book is the next best thing. Highly recommended.

I liked voice and intent of this book, and got some very good pointers, but overall, the content is thin. The most important tips can be read in the NY Times Sunday styles review of the book. Would have preferred the authors dig a little deeper into some of the concepts. For instance, I should clear my closet of things that aren't flattering. How about some hints to a great fit??? If I bought it, I probably already think it fits! Since most of us can't afford the authors' hourly consultation rates, I don't think they would have siphoned off a lot of their business by letting out a few more tips.

After reading NOTHING TO WEAR? I was inspired to see myself as other see me.
First took everything out. If it was too small, worn or I never liked it anyway, it went into the give away bag. Then I start mixing and matching while looking at a full length image of me. If it looked dumpy--it went. If it need mending--went into the mending basket, and if I didn't have a top that matched the skirt--it went on the shopping list.

Now I can really walk into my walk-in closet and select an outfit at a moments notice. I know the outfit look good on me, fits perfectly and I can dress in less than half the time. Also got all new clothes hangers, all turned toward me.

Gave the book to my daughter who did exactly the same thing.
