Theauthors have gone in depth about what looks good and what doesn’t and I owe every-thing I know to them. Everything below is highly recommended:1. What Not to Wear by Trinny and SusannahThis was the first book I read on how to dress better, and my wardrobe is better for it.Trinny and Susannah have divided each page and its opposite to what looks bad vs.what looks good, and each picture tells way more than a thousand words. If there’sonly one book you read on style, this would be it.2. The Pocket Stylist by Kendall FarrMs. Farr is a professional stylist with years of experience. This is an encyclopedia ofstyle that details everything you need to know about looking great.3. Ask Andy About Clotheshttp://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/Tutorials/CindyBuschColorAnalysis.htmIronically an eBook about women’s wear has a color section that is mostly based on thiswebsite above.
