How to Look Fabulous All the Time, at Any Age, for Any Occasion. In all the red-carpet, backstage, and front-row comings and goings in all that time, the women who made a splash in their seasonal big-ticket items blend into a blur of fashion blah. For chloe, margot, and patricia. The stylish standouts are memorable still: the sixty-year-old Frenchwoman in tuxedo suit and heels making the rest of us in puffy dresses feel overdressed at a party in Paris; somebody’s assistant looking so cool in jeans and her grandmother’s jewelry when the rest of us were having our gothic Japanese moment; the coltish gatecrasher bouncing into one of those.

Style Clinic - How to Look Fabulous All the Time, at Any Age, for Any Occasion lives up to its title, as well as to the belief that: while fashion is time-bound, style is timeless. However, Paula Reed's Style Clinic jutxaposes the practical, readily applicable, styling advice of Lucky's Manual with the chic sophistication of Nina Garcia's seminal texts (Black Book of Style and the "Hundred"). While you love the whimsical drawings by Ruben Toledo in Garcia's book, it left you wanting actual photographs to help pull the concepts together. In terms of its visual appeal, Reed's Style Clinic delivers what Garcia's texts do not.

Fashion's best-kept secrets from London's leading fashion authority

Why is it that simply getting dressed in the morning can be a bewildering experience? Last month's must-haves date you faster than a frizzy perm, and before the credit-card bill is paid, some expert is telling you your latest fashion fantasy is now "so last season." The more you buy, the less it seems you have to wear.

Knowing what works and what doesn't, how and when to shop, how best to dress your body shape, and how to work an accessory like a styling pro will propel you on your way to fashion nirvana: the effortlessly chic set. With timeless tips and practical advice, fashion editor Paula Reed proves that you don't have to have a big budget, a whole new wardrobe, or the latest fad to look great.

Transform your life with these expert lessons

When to spend: what is worth a budget blowout and what can be a cheap buy.

How to find the fabulous in every figure: dress thin, tall, and timeless . . . promise!

Secrets of the successful shopper: how to know if it's eek! or chic!

The essential proportions of the perfect pants, the jacket you'll love forever, and dresses to die for.

And much more—on coats, suits, shirts, shoes, bags, and essential accessories. Here you'll find everything else you need to release your individual style.

Each chapter focuses on a particular element of fashion—coats, dresses, suits, bags, jewelry—making it easy to navigate the world of fashion. From eveningwear to work wear, weekends to big nights out, from the boardroom to the home office, Reed covers it all with warmth, wit, and intelligence. With a little basic skill, deftly applied, you can have confidence in knowing that what you put on looks great and serves you well. Whatever your age, whether you have a big budget or are flat broke, Style Clinic will help make fashion work for you.

The book starts out talking about a distinction between the concept of style and the concept of fashion. Style is different from fashion in the way that fashion trends come and go and style is timeless. It helps knowing exactly what works for your body type and your style personality. What pieces worth splurging and what to buy cheap. What needs to be renewed often and what will last. The book also talks about classics - the pieces that will never go out of style. I especially enjoy that part since I prefer timeless pieces over new trends. Trends come and go and there is no need to follow each one, especially considering the fact that not all trends will work well for a particular body type. As the book mentions, if one looks great in boot-cut jeans, there is no need to get into unknown territory of skinny jeans just because they are trendy at a particular time. there is no need to deviate from what has worked well for you in the past. The basic moral is - Fashion makes you desire things you should not. Shop your style, not the hottest fashion trends.

Alos the book lists some timeless classics, such as trench coat, LBD, tuxedo suit, good jeans, classic knits such as twinsets, turtleneck and v-neck sweater. Personally I am a big fan of trench coats, cashmere, good jeans, twinsets, pearls and LBD.

Then the book goes into what should be kept in your closet and what should be discarded. The more you buy, the less it seems you have to wear. Buying a lot does not mean that everything you buy will work for you, most of us buy impulsively on a whim and then end up with disfunctional wardrobe. And that's where the Style Clinic comes in.
It helps you to decide what to purge from your wardrobe and what is worth keeping.

Next subject is wardrobe basics - white shirt, cardigan in your favorite color, suit jacket that goes with your skirt, 3 pairs of pant: jeans, tailored work pants, and smart day-to-evening pants, classic LBD, couple of casual t-shirts and tank tops, dressy round-neck top as a dressy alternative to a t-shirt, day skirt, 3 pairs of shoes: boots, ballet flats and a pair of high heels. The list of basics is followed by details about each item, how to pick the right one and what to wear it with.

Also there is plenty of advice on how to find the perfect fit for your body, on using colors and prints in order to emphasize or camouflage, dressing appropriate for your age, and some successful shopper tips. Such as CBS: coat, bag, and shoes formula and other useful rules.

Second part of the book talks about each piece of clothing (jeans, skirt, dress etc.) more in depth, what to wear it with, what kind to choose for each body type, how to build a coat capsule, how to select a perfect pair of pants, a skirt, dress, accessories etc. Well illustrated with pictures of celebrities that fit a particular body type and/or wearing particular article of clothing.

I'd highly recommend this book since it has a good advice for any occasion

Well, all the photo examples of dressed celebs are good. I recommended you check this book out at the library first. It wasn't bad and I'm going to plan to resale it to bookstore. This book is a common sense approach on how to build a wardrobe. I liked Instyle the New Secrets of Style: Your Complete Guide to Dressing Your Best Every Day [Hardcover] book better. I wish it went more in depth which material they recommend on each fashion piece. I wish these fashion books remain neutral on dressing to look slimmer or illusion of body shape you're not. I'm tired of them degrading different body types that are not high fashion or women who are older age. I'm so of tired these fashion books only concern on designer fashions. What about us who can't afford designer clothes and only can afford mass produced fashions? Identify what fabrics and quality we should look for in these fashions. My problem with fashion books they fail to relate to regular women.

The author gives basic style (not fashion) advice. It centers on timeless considerations and pieces. While she does address shape issues (wide hips, big bosoms, etc.), shape categories or personality are not the main focus. She talks about quality vs. quantity and how to recognise a good fit (very useful).
There's the occasional contradiction (do this if you have a big bosom and that if you have a flat bottom - but it may contradict itself if you have both a big bosom and a flat bottom). And there's the advice that goes counter to what's currently in fashion. But as the author says, don't wear something that looks bad on you just because it's in fashion. Use your judgment.
The advantage of the more general nature of advice is that it doesn't date fast.
Wire
As many other reviewers have stated before me, the photos in this book are fabulous and the reader will not be dissappointed in them.

The only reason that I gave this book four stars rather than five is because I was so frustrated in that when the author showed an outfit or an item, she never stated the brand!... YES,true, the author did provide the readers with a long list of stores that the items COULD BE bought at,(maybe), however, there is absolutely no way for the reader to know which of the MANY many stores the author listed in the index, carried the actual products photographed in this book.

I'll give you some examples: ... she showed a variety of jeans that fit each body-type. Beautiful ideas! Well, some of those jeans were wonderful looking,for sure, but since no BRAND was ever given,then there was no way for the reader to go out and buy the jeans that fit her body type. I was so frustrated, and I'm sure that when you browse this book, you will see exactly what I'm talking about. Well, maybe that is not a big thing with some readers or maybe some readers are so totally "brand-savvy", that they can look at 200 products and immediately tell which maker or brand makes them. But honestly, most people in the "real world" (except maybe Hollywood stylists) could never do that. People like us need to know not only the stores that carry such products, but also, it would be nice to know the brands, so that a shopper can go directly to that store listed in the index (whether on the internet or in person).

Another example are the shoes: This book pictured some of the most gorgeous shoes imaginable, but the photos were taken so that the insides were not visible and thus, the reader could not tell who made them. Aside from the obvious Christian Loubitins with the obvious red soles, how can a reader know which platforms or pumps or sandals were made by which brand?

I'll give you another exmaple: I also own the book by Isaac Mizrahi and the best thing about that book is that each and every product shown in Isaac's book is given credit. Thus, not only does the reader know which stores carry the products Isaac mentions (eg: the photographed shoes, jeans,coats,purses,ect), but also Isaac names all the stores in the USA that carry every single product that he photographed in his book.
Thus, I wish that the author of "STYLE CLINIC" would have done the same.

PS: In the back of this book, each of the PHOTOGRAPHERS of the Hollywood starlets (photographed in this book) were given credit. So basically, the only credits given in the back of this book were the photographers of the starlets OR the magazine for which the photographers worked for.
Thus, to piggy-back what I said before, I only wish the author had given credit to the products' brand names, along with the photographers & magazine names.
