The Look: A Guide to Dressing from the Inside Out - Randolph Duke (Boek)

From Publishers Weekly
In this brief but thorough fashion guidebook, renowned fashion designer Duke shares insights on how to reclaim personal style, identify body shape, accessorize and cultivate authentic style. The guide's strength is Duke's friendly approach to informing the reader: he does not dictate what to wear (or what not to), but rather encourages readers to trust their personal style while teaching them to make informed decisions based on malleable guidelines which can be shaped to cater to one's unique sense. After outlining five body types (lower figured, middle figured, upper figured, linear, and hourglass), chapters focus on developing your wardrobe, applying it to different purposes (work, play and seduction), and fitting it with accessories, cosmetics and "The All-Important Personality Piece." "Style diaries" offer workshop activities which range from journaling ("Describe your best qualities") to art projects (creating a storyboard of fabric swatches, paint chips, fashion magazine clippings and inspirational photographs) to clothes swapping with friends. This solid primer has a confident tone that's both positive and infectious.
