Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"What's your personal style? Surfer? Preppy girl? Goth? Readers can find out with this hip, down-to-earth guide to fashion. Flaherty offers style profiles and quizzes; she also includes advice on color, pattern, and finding clothing that flatters, while emphasizing how personal style is an art form drawn from life experience. Simple graphics depict girls casually modeling different looks, and sidebars list famous examples of individuals who embody particular styles and shapes (famous 'Hip-Hoppers' include Rihanna and Missy Elliott; Kate Winslet has a 'classic hourglass' figure). Suggestions for buying used clothing and putting together outfits that combine elements of different looks result in a realistic and user-friendly approach to style for savvy girls. Ages 12 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
