Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A celebrity fashion stylist reveals the tricks of her trade and shows women of all sizes how to pull together their own polished, individual look.

Whether she’s petite, average, or plus size, every woman has experienced the frustration of searching for flattering clothes. In The Pocket Stylist every reader can have a consultation with her own personal stylist and use the author’s behind-the-scenes wardrobe wisdom:

  • Taking her true measurements—from eight different body zones—to ensure an attractive fit based on the reader’s unique silhouette and the proportions that will flatter it best
  • Why ready-to-wear isn’t, and how and when to use a tailor for a custom fit
  • The best fabrics for your unique silhouette
  • How to balance trends with the classic, indispensable pieces that are the backbone of any well-conceived wardrobe
  • What "closet archaeology" can unearth and reveal about your wardrobe needs
  • Why the right lingerie makes a critical difference in the fit of your clothes
  • Tips from other experts on the beauty principles that ground your everyday look— Bobbi Brown and Sonja Kashuk for makeup and Kevin Mancuso for hair—offer backstage access
  • Accessories that give an outfit an individual look and that no versatile wardrobe should be without

Best of all, The Pocket Stylist features specifically edited shopping lists for various body types. Four "styled" looks for each silhouette — from jeans-casual to cocktails — illustrate ideal proportion and fit. The reader becomes Kendall Farr’s client and will learn to shop and dress herself like a pro. The Pocket Stylist delivers the behind the camera expertise of a veteran stylist in one purse-size indispensable guide.

Review:

"Farr is funny, down to earth and savvy, and her guide exudes authority and experience. Although involved, it is comprehensive and trend-resistant, meant to help women of any shape and size find clothes that flatter no matter what the runway season suggests." Publishers Weekly
