Style Book: Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Style: How to Find Your Perfect Look








A few months ago I purchased "Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Style: How to Find Your Perfect Look" by Ann Shoket and Editors of Seventeen magazine. I love style books, I love Seventeen magazine so why not give this book a chance right? Well ladies let me tell you that I was not disappointed one bit!




What is it about?
This book is exactly what it sounds like, a style book. The book is softcover with glossy pages and tons of pictures! It is like a magazine and scrapbook all in one. The book has 5 different style sections dedicated to a particular style (Girly, Edgy, Boho, Classic, Glam, and Indie) and matched to a celebrity that best represent that certain style and used them as the style inspiration. They also give you a list of essential wardrobe pieces for each style, the best stores to go to and look books, along with various tricks and tips on how to put everything together to create the perfect outfit. To add to that they also have a section dedicated to accessories and another to help you finding the perfect fit for your body type. Pretty nice right!



What I think about it?
I really loved this book, I think it might be my favorite style book from all the ones that I have (I have 2 more, so it isn't alot haha). I liked that this book showed examples of different styles and used a celebrity as inspiration. Also thanks to this book I was able to better see what style is more my fit, like based on what I like and what I wear I'm a mix between girly and classic which I can see now that I think about it. And I was thinking that maybe I should do a posts on the different styles this book like what are the wardrobe essentials for that particular style, what do you think? Should I write a post about it?




Who might like it?
Overall I think any girl would love this book. From girls who are more advanced in their style evolution to girls barely beginning to have a interest in fashion, this book has something for everybody. Because even if you do not fit into one particular style you can still mix and match whatever styles you love to create a look entirely your own. This book really is a fashion bible, and I guarantee that anyone who picks up this book will have something to gain from it.

What about you?
Have you read this book and did you like it? Or is this a book you are interested in reading? Do you have a favorite style book? Also, would you be interested in me writing a post dedicated to each style section, let me know. . .

  4. I'm subscribed to Seventeen magazine but I thought that the stylebook would be bad. Since you reviewed this book, I'm now thinking of getting it because it does look informative.
