*Never demonstrate how to wear fashion style realistically.
*Overdo it when putting an outfit together
*So anti-match- matchy and don't believe in color coordination in some way like basic matching the colors, monochromatic, or complimentary in some way
*Throw on many fashion pieces that don't go with each other
*Overly mixing fashion patterns
That why I'm somewhat disappointed in this book and why I was disappointed Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Style: How to Find Your Perfect Look [Paperback]
Ann Shoket (Author) book. They need leave this type of styling to the runways and over the topness to magazines like Vogue, Elle, and The W. For to real world fashionistas and to regular women who want to look stylish who are seeking information, they need put out more realistic style advice. Most of these women who graduated with degrees in fashion were bought up by a wealthy rich family, but they are so stuck in their own world. Yes, they can afford designer clothes, but most of us can't. It's sad they failed to relate to regular women on how to put a style together. I'm a faithful reader of InStyle and Peoplestyle Watch's magazines. I can't afford the clothes, but at least they made it relatable that I CAN REDUPLICATE THE STYLE OR THE LOOK. The sale papers ads of Target, JcPenney, and Kohls make it relatable to reduplicate the look of the trend.Read more ›
"If you have a wardrobe hole and you can plug it with a quality item, do it! If you go the cheap-'n'-trendy route, you're likely to have to fill this same hole again each year..." Then the following sections: "Sequin Safari," "Rocker Tee Remix," "Grunge Gamine." Not all sections are equally outlandish for me, but I was so disappointed (and shocked) to get a book with a model sporting a mohawk, short-short skirts and shorts, and an off shoulder dress with half the bra showing. I was hoping for tips from bloggers for a "current" wardrobe.
Talk about can't judge a book by its cover!! I wish the cover had not looked so tame and sensible or I never would have wasted my money.
The only thing I'm going to say is lacking is the "dress for your body type" section. Which really I dont think is something this audience is looking for... this book is clearly geared toward the 17-28 set. Also it bares stating since I see some of the other reviews were dishartened by this fact: this is a funky, fashionista book... and while I applaud it for its utilitarian sections on specific clothing pieces, the average Jane living in Nebraska or where ever that likes to bop around in basic clothing and has a basic sense of style is not going to "get" a lot of the pictures and what I refered to above as fashion inspiration. In other words: pick up a copy of, say, Nylon magazine or if its not available in your area (it wasnt in mine until just recently) check out their website. If you dont dig the style in that magazine your not going to appriciate the style in this book.
Other than that, if you fancy yourself a fashionista and want a great book to start off your collection (or add to what you already have since we all know once you get into fashion lit your never getting out!) then this is a great book for you!
