From the Inside Flap
With a rousing "we're all in this together" attitude, Leah Feldon proves that a well-chosen wardrobe can render any figure fabulous. "All we have to do," writes Feldon, "is choose the right clothes--clothes that camouflage any real or imagined figure flaws rather than highlighting them--and learn how to do it with ultimate style and confidence." Take five pounds off your look with a new hemline; disguise a bit of bulge with a cleverly designed blouse; highlight your best assets with the perfect accessories. The key to "camouflage chic" is dressing to suit your body type, comfort level, and lifestyle--all while maximizing your own personal flair.
Instead of spending another moment agonizing in front of the closet, you'll learn how to:
* distinguish between "yes" and "no" colors
* lose the tummy without the tuck
* perk up your basic black
* create optical illusions for a long, lean look
* conquer the dreaded bathing-suit challenge
* follow timeless tenets of good taste
Packed with empowering, easy-to-implement tips, fun illustrations, and celebrity style secrets, Does This Make Me Look Fat? provides all the information you'll need to create a slimmer, more stylish, and better-proportioned look (and to help your man do it, too!).

Conclusion: read only the "Fat" book for commmon guidelines, and then find more updated literature on style.
It relies heavily on black (people bring me a chair to sit down if I wear black as it makes me look like an undertaker's diploma piece), but the method of "camouflage chic" works as well with other darker colors.
Especially helpful if you sew yourself and have to make decisions on style and detailing without being able to try the garment on!
As to mentioning wearing black, and some reviewers seeing that as "dated", most of the new books out still say to have that "little black dress/outfit" too. If you don't like black (I don't because it requires more care to avoid the color fading), wear some other dark or medium color as your main color.
For the reviewer who was dismayed at the tone of the book, well, the title accurately describes the purpose of the book, which is to dress for the figure you have. Not everyone is wrapped up in size issues, but they DO want to buy the clothes that will flatter their figure. I did not see the book as condescending in any way, just matter-of-fact in its presentation.
The celebrity quotes are kind of dumb, but thankfully don't detract from the rest of the book.
