"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.

“Fashion is such a big part of my life. But growing up in Laguna, I always dressed very plain—just tanks, jeans, and flip-flops. Seventeen’s Ultimate Guide to Style is exactly the kind of book I would have loved to have back then—there’s so much good style advice and so many great outfit ideas!”
“I love to mix styles—some days I like to wear edgier things, some days I wear really girly stuff. That’s why Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Style is so great—there’s a fashion vibe in here for everyone!”
"I started out as a model in Seventeen! I love this book because I think it's so important to have your own sense of style-and to celebrate your beauty inside and out!"
