The Book of Styling is a girl’s resource for all of her fashion needs. Author Somer Flaherty walks the reader through different looks, (such as “The Glam Girl,” “The Tomboy,” and “The Bohemian”), body types, the steps to achieving a great look, and many other tips and tricks along the way. One of my favorite parts of the book is a concept called The Power of Three. The trick is simple: pick three tops, three bottoms, and three pairs of shoes that all match one another. If you’re in a rush, just pick one item from each category, and you’re set.
