On the other hand, if you are a savvy student of fashion and clothing, you will be able to read between the lines, discard the prejudices and assumptions of another era, and pull out of it all a sense of what it means to dress well in a casual, wash and wear world. This book represents a transition between the style of Betty Draper and the athleisure trend. Forty years ago, this book was probably revolutionary. Now, it is how we dress.
If you are not sophisticated about clothes, are looking to economize, and are looking for a guide, this is not the book to buy. Instead, I suggest Ines de la Fressange and Sophie Gachet's adorable "Parisian Chic," available right here on Amazon. Published five years ago, it itself is getting a little rusty, but it prescribes a small wardrobe of useful basics to get you through any situation. It also doubles as a travel guide to Paris.
