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.

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.

this book proves not only inspirational, but also educational and just plain fun to flip through. the pages are beautiful and the wardrobe basics and descriptions of types of clothing are super helpful. i also appreciate the global approach to the book, featuring fashion bloggers from around the world. i wish i had this book 20 years ago, but better late than never! i'm so ready to clean out my closet and start fresh. i'm ready for my style makeover!

Young and trendy, not my style. For me, I would give it a zero star rating; I gave three stars because if you're in your teens or twenties, maybe you'd like it.

"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.

I just recieved this book in the mail. I read the first handful of pages and flipped through the rest of the book and I feel I have a good enough understanding of the book to give it this very fair assessment. I would say that of all the books on fashion I have read (I've read quite a few) that this is the most comprehensive of them all. It is both visually stunning for the seasoned fashionista looking for some pretty pictures and fashion inspiration but it also covers practicle clothing advice which is important.
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!
