Synopses & Reviews
No brand is more trusted among teens and young women than Seventeen. The monthly magazine's more than 13 million devoted readers know it is the place to learn about what matters most to a girl--and fashion is at the top of the list! Packed with amazing clothes and indispensable style advice, Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style is the book readers will turn to again and again for fashion inspiration.
Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style is all about teaching young women to cultivate their own unique style. The book draws advice from the magazine's editors, real-girl style experts, Hollywood stylists, and celebrity fashion icons. Its chapters explore seven timeless fashion vibes: Classic, Edgy, Girly, Glam, Sporty, Artsy, and Boho. Each section breaks down all a girl needs to know about mastering the look and giving it her personal twist. Throughout its beautifully illustrated pages, the book also provides young women with endless ideas to maximize their wardrobe, stretch their dollar, and make everyday basics work in hundreds of ways. Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Style is an indispensable resource for young fashionistas everywhere.
"Teens who eagerly devour the latest issues of favorite fashion magazines will likely do the same with this photo-centric style guide. Each section offers advice about constructing a particular look — girly, edgy, boho, classic, glam, or indie — using essential layering pieces, followed by profiles of a 'real' girl and a celeb (Ashley Tisdale, Vanessa Hudgens) who embodies that trend. Assorted 'Look Book' images feature models and pedestrians in eye-catching outfits, plus shopping tips. Most readers will find that their preferences lie somewhere in between the categories, and Shoket encourages experimentation; a closing section devoted to finding flattering jeans, swimsuits, and bras for different body types will give readers a foundation upon which to build a unique aesthetic. Ages 12 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
