2.0 out of 5 stars For the VERY conservative dresser... 18 May 2008
I'm fully aware that style and fashion are two completely different things, but I do feel that the advice given in this book and mostly the illustrations are far too much on the conservative/frumpy/dowdy side. My guess is that most British ladies would like to dress stylishly, but a bit more modern than what is described in this book. This book features the most horrendous pair of knickers in the "Underwear" section I have ever have set my eyes on.
All in all not bad, but if you want to be stylish with a bit of a modern twist, you'd be better off with the Lucky Shopping Manual!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good advice with great pictures 1 July 2007
This is a good all round style manual with great pictures and easy to follow ideas. It is soildly built on the In Style magazine format (the US version not the UK one - the UK one being a poor imitation of the original). Worth the money for the special occasion advice alone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Get from the library first 14 May 2005
By Lovin' Life - Published on Amazon.com
I am an attractive woman but have an awful time trying to put together a wardrobe that I'm happy with! Looking for guidance, I checked out this book as well as the Lucky Style Manual. The Lucky book I looked at firsthand at Border's and found it to be very cleanly laid out, useful, informative and inspiring - especially the part about the closet purge and four simple questions to ask about those items you're holding on to. Profiles in the book are about designers (some pretty eclectic) with some interesting tips and styles, highly individualized. I checked out In Style's book from the library, and am glad I didn't spend the money. Maybe because I'm not a celebrity freak and don't really read in style magazine, I was intimidated by their use of celebrities wearing multi thousand dollar fashions (some of which I didn't even care for) to illustrate their fashion guidelines. I found that the book tended to repeat the obvious and erred on the side of being boring. I didn't find the inspiration or practical help I was looking for. The Lucky manual is a keeper; one that I came back to purchase on Amazon, and it's a useful reference book and indeed helping me put things together.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really like this! 11 Sep 2005
By Cristine - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book because it's not about following trends or fads, it's about finding what works for you. Too often the fashion industry becomes too concerned with tall & skinny people like they are the only ones who wear clothes. This guide covers just about all types of garments & body types. I was lucky to get it at a used book store for five dollars & I've been using it ever since.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look your best 22 Aug 2006
By ML775 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Did you ever wish you knew why some women always look so, "together?" What's their secret? This book is a great help to discovering what kinds of clothes look best on you and how to buy and care for clothes that will make you look terrific. I didn't find the entire book helpful, but I think the tips I did get out of the book have helped me dress in a more flattering manner.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really a "style" book 29 Sep 2006
By Ruby 2zz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is good for explaining which shapes of clothes look good on which figures, how clothes should fit, and how to tie a scarf. While that is helpful, I was expecting to learn some "secrets of style" as the title claims. Some tips on finding a style that corresponds with your personality or lifestyle, how to make it your own, shop for it, and keep it updated...that's what I thought I was buying. Too bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Book! 21 Mar 2007
By Nubian Princess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have purchased other style books in the past, but this is one of the most useful because it breaks down body types and what looks best. My goal was the dress sexier and more feminine and this books has taught me what types of tops and bottoms to achieve that look. Now that I stick to the rules of thumb they provided, I am more comfortable with wearing whatever I pull out of my closet because I know it will fit great and be stylish.
