Many of these "how-to" style books always strike me as a bit ... Bland? Repetitive? Patronizing? Yes, yes and yes. Some are cool to browse through to in order to get inspired, but I always feel like the instructional books just reiterate cliche ideas of what's "classic" and "timeless." (We know, all women should have a crisp white shirt, a trench, a pencil skirt, an LBD, a well-cut pair of black trousers, blah, blah, blah). This book, by the editors of InStyle, probably would resonate with the readership of my publication though. While readership is large, a cutting-edge, fashion-forward crowd don't depend on us for style advice.
