Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 8 million fans of TLC's hottest show, What Not to Wear, know it as the place to go for real-life fashion advice. Now the show's hosts, Clinton Kelly and Stacy London, offer spot-on fashion wisdom — with an attitude — in this fully illustrated, authoritative, and irreverent fashion guide to dressing your best for every occasion. Clinton and Stacy's surefire method for boosting appearance rests on their belief that we can all win admiring glances by selecting clothes that play up our positives and create a balanced body shape. In Dress Your Best, Clinton and Stacy match a wide range of female and male body types with the perfect work, casual, and evening attire, showing you exactly how to make your best parts "work" for you.

Whether you're searching for a way to accentuate your assets, puzzling over the right print pattern for your frame, or just looking for a solution to the dilemma "What do I need to wear to look fabulous?" you'll find here the universal tips, dos and don'ts, seasonal alternatives, and must-haves that will deliver the answers. Dress Your Best is certain to become the standard by which all other fashion guides are measured.

Review:

"The spunky hosts of TLC's What to Wear present a fashion guide that's empowering, friendly and exceedingly useful. No gimmicky, fruit-related body shape names here — Kelly and London keep things simple. For each of their female body types — 'bigger on top,' 'bigger on the bottom,' 'a little extra in the middle,' 'curvy,' 'not curvy,' etc. — there's advice for petite, average height and tall women. (The men's section is equally straightforward if shorter: 'tall,' 'athletic,' 'barrel-chested,' etc.) Kelly and London use positive reinforcement (there are many more 'dos' than 'don'ts'), and sprinkle 'universal tips' applicable to any body type throughout. Each type's section opens with a photo of an average-looking model sporting a basic swimsuit, along with comments from the model and the authors. Although they don't cite brand or store names, Kelly and London give plenty of specific advice: e.g., a straight dress will accentuate curves on an hourglass shape; a jacket with a moderately low 'stance' (v-neck) will help the upper body appear longer. Ladies and gentlemen, start your shopping engines — and don't leave home without this book! Agent, John Boswell Management. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
