In Style: Secrets of Style: The Complete Guide to Dressing Your Best Every Day

From Publishers Weekly
InStyle's phonebook-sized issues burst with images of superstars in fabulous clothes and jewelry, hair perfectly coifed and nails meticulously manicured. The magazine's editors have taken a different tack with this book, however, as they attempt to make "fashion understandable, achievable and, maybe most importantly, fun." In chapters covering everything from shopping and storage to specific clothing items (like suits, shoes and lingerie) to particular occasions (e.g., traveling and maternity), the editors share tips many readers would never even think they needed to know.
(For example, to keep denim dark, turn jeans inside out before washing them and never put them in the dryer; and take pearl earrings off before spraying hairspray and perfume, since the chemicals can destroy pearls.) Often emphasizing different styles for different body types, the book shuns models, opting for simple photos and drawings of the clothes (although the editors do throw in a few welcome movie star shots for reference). The result is an all-embracing, comprehensive manual on all manner of women's dressing.
