Get inspired with Style Yourself


 
With advice from the world’s top fashion bloggers, Style Yourself is an out-of-the-closet (er, box) guide to fresh fashion, whether you’re struttin’ those halls as the next top model, showin’ off your own eclectic designs, or totally clueless about clothes!

This book is bursting with styling tips and ideas all the way from Johannesburg, South Africa to Stockholm, Sweden and everywhere in between—no one-style-fits-all decrees here. The opening act features a few “wardrobe basics” that are essential for any sitch, whether you’re out on the town (say yes to edgy necklaces and casual carry-all totes) or glammin’ it up at a formal dinner (a dressy yet sleek clutch is perf).  We heart the insider tips on how to shop savvy—this one especially rings true: When shopping with friends, “Take others’ opinions with a boulder [no, not grain] of salt,” so you can find cool, individualistic outfits for YOU, not your best bud.

Style Yourself then introduces you to 95 different fierce and funky fashionistas who tell you the secret about what makes their look unique. We learned that yes, you can ride a bike in a skirt and booties, and that yes, you can wear oxford-style mary-janes with a leather bomber. You’ll find everything from Homecoming-dress remixes to how to rock the menswear trend right to the lowdown on heels of all sizes—consider this guide your new personal style bible!
