Fashion's best-kept secrets from London's leading fashion authority

Why is it that simply getting dressed in the morning can be a bewildering experience? Last month's must-haves date you faster than a frizzy perm, and before the credit-card bill is paid, some expert is telling you your latest fashion fantasy is now "so last season." The more you buy, the less it seems you have to wear.

Knowing what works and what doesn't, how and when to shop, how best to dress your body shape, and how to work an accessory like a styling pro will propel you on your way to fashion nirvana: the effortlessly chic set. With timeless tips and practical advice, fashion editor Paula Reed proves that you don't have to have a big budget, a whole new wardrobe, or the latest fad to look great.

Transform your life with these expert lessons

When to spend: what is worth a budget blowout and what can be a cheap buy. How to find the fabulous in every figure: dress thin, tall, and timeless . . . promise! Secrets of the successful shopper: how to know if it's eek! or chic! The essential proportions of the perfect pants, the jacket you'll love forever, and dresses to die for. And much more--on coats, suits, shirts, shoes, bags, and essential accessories. Here you'll find everything else you need to release your individual style.

Each chapter focuses on a particular element of fashion--coats, dresses, suits, bags, jewelry--making it easy to navigate the world of fashion. From eveningwear to work wear, weekends to big nights out, from the boardroom to the home office, Reed covers it all with warmth, wit, and intelligence. With a little basic skill, deftly applied, you can have confidence in knowing that what you put on looks great and serves you well. Whatever your age, whether you have a big budget or are flat broke, Style Clinic will help make fashion work for you.

The book is not as well organized as I would have liked but the information contained in it is very good. I learned a couple of really helpful ideas about what suits me and had many more observations made over the years confirmed.
This book along with Fantastic Fit for Every Body which teaches you how to make a croquis or a silhouette of your own body on which to experiment with clothing styles contributed to Ah Ha moments.
