Format: Paperback
When I first saw this book, I thought there would be no way I could relate to it because it would be "too young" for me. But once I got it, I realized that even though I'm in my 40's, I could use it too! It has so many cool, helpful little tips and tricks for accessorizing and closet staples. You know how cookbooks always suggest "things you should always keep in your home pantry"? Well, this is kind of like that. It's got a section that I loved called "Shop Smarter" and two pages of "Stock a Few Accessories"that was really helpful since I always thought you had to have a truckload of accessories. You actually can get away with just a few cool pieces. A little goes a long way. I also love the remixes of one item, styled a bunch of different ways. I highly recommend this book.

Well for the price of this book. I was believing these fashion bloggers were going to demonstrate styles that are realistic to try, but they didn't. My whole nightmare came true and this why I usually refrain from buying "fashion books". Because this book conformed to these stereotypes

*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.

This is a very informative book for teens and 20-somethings who are just coming into their own style, but anyone over the age of 30 is not going to find much of use for herself.

Format: Paperback
In terms of beautiful photos and visual identification on styles of tops, dresses, shoes, etc, this book is fantastic. For me, it wasn't very useful because it didn't cover how to make your own style, or dress for your body shape and size, or many tutorials. There were a few "this is how you can reuse a ballgown into something else" tips, which was nice, but they weren't my style. However, if you're in an industry (or school) where you can dress in funky and bohemian styles, the pictures of other people's outfits may give you some inspiration.

Don't waste your money - lots of photos, but that's it. No practical materials, no usefull advices. I should have looked through Sartorialist instead.

Style Yourself is a must-have for anyone looking to add some fashion inspiration to their wardrobe. Full of colorful and quirkly personal style photos from top fashion bloggers - teens and 20-somethings will find ideas on how to create their own style. This book also goes into detail on garment construction, color basics (which colors look best on you), pant styles, coat styles as well as types of fabrics. Readers of fashion blogs will enjoy seeing their fave bloggers translated into print. A must for any serious fashionista!

The photos are fantastic and it's a wonderful resource to help build a good closet. I recently did a closet clean-out and after reading the book, I began realizing what I can do with the pieces I was thinking of giving up. I'm learning the art of buying a single piece (instead of the outfit the mannequin had on) and using it for multiple looks, mixing in things i already have! JOY! Thanks to the bloggers for their inspiration.
