Following on from what he taught us in his previous books, this one brings it all together. It is divided into chapters of key pieces that every girl should have in her wardrobe to banish bad clothes days forever! He talks about how 1 item of simple clothing can be worn in several different ways and take you from day to night, with tips on how to re-invent what you've already got and for the shopaholics amongst us tips on how to be a savvy shopper, this really is the bible for every woman surviving the credit crunch!
Firstly I should point out that the overall style and layout of the book is a vast improvement on How To Dress. It is much more user friendly, free from silly blank 'notes' pages and zany outfits, and Gok has also thankfully omitted sections on how to dress for bed, pregnancy and wedding wear. In short, he doesn't try to tackle too much in this book, just the everyday style basics. On the downside, when I say basics I really do mean basic! Despite its appealing packaging and layout, Work Your Wardrobe did not really inspire me, there were no lightbulb moments as I read this and I'm still none the wiser what to throw out and what to keep when I attempt my wardrobe clearout tomorrow. Also, as a size 10 / 12 with a big bust and hips, a lot of the content really didn't apply to me. Gok details items of clothing I stay away from because they don't suit me eg: shirts are impossible for me because they usually gape around the bust, or are so big they swamp my small frame, pussybow blouses make me look frumpy, and I can't even fit a knee into a skinny jean. I was hoping for more pictures on how to put things together, but no such luck. There were a few pages of models in odd clothing, but most of the other pics were of Gok.Read more ›
I was hoping for some references to capsule wardrobes as per the programme but this book doesn't even cover the topic at all which was really disappointing. I would rather have swapped the Beauty section for a capsule wardrobe chapter. To not even cover this when it's a huge part of his recent series is just a bit annoying.
