What Should I Wear?: Dressing for Occasions (Chic Simple) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First the Rush of excitement the invitation brings, then the anxious question, "What should I wear?" And the usual answer, "I have nothing to wear." (i) Chic Simple (/i) takes care of both of those universal worries, not only showing what is appropriate for whatever occasion but helping you find the crucial outfit in your own closet.

More than a guide to the myriad events that make up modern life, this is a volume that helps you understand how to build a wardrobe and master the trick to adding the essential modification for each season.

To accomplish this, (i) Chic Simple (/i) begins by asking you to assess your body type, lifestyle, and budget and then shows you how to assemble a flexible but affordable basic wardrobe that will make you look and feel great at any event - a wedding, a charity ball, a funeral, a bar mitzvah, a board meeting, a dinner date, a Saturday brunch, or a night at the opera or ballet. It's an easy-to-use guide, whether you're on the West Coast, East Coast, or in between, to dressing for life, season by season.

Synopsis:

This is the book that will show women what to wear for every special occasion, whether it's a holiday party, religious celebration, school graduation, or business meeting. Chic Simple decodes the rituals of dressing: how the clothes in which you'll feel at ease can vary according to region as well as season — differences in palette, hemline, and formality on the West Coast, East Coast, in the South and Midwest ... what jewelry (and how much) to wear ... hat or no hat.

What Should I Wear? discusses not only the clothes and accessories you feel and look best in but also the occasion itself, advising you about invitations, presents, and other matters of etiquette. Pictures and text clearly answer your questions about style and propriety.

Whatever your age or wherever you live, you'll find yourself prepared to attend any occasion — from a wedding in Palm Beach to a cocktail party in New York City or Chicago — looking great and feeling at ease.
