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. It’s simple, and it gives you 27 options for last-minute outfits. Flaherty also discusses styling for friends and family and making a career out of styling.
I really enjoyed this book. I read it cover-to-cover, but I would suggest skipping around and reading what seems to apply to you. There are many sections to the book, and readers can pick and choose which ones they find interesting. This book is a short and enjoyable read, but it is jam-packed with useful information. I will definitely use the things I learned in my everyday life, and I’m sure other readers will, too. If you enjoy fashion and want to learn more about it, this is definitely a satisfying choice for you.
