The Best Fashion and Lifestyle Books of 2012

In need of some light reading over the holidays? Luckily, you don’t have to look far because for today’s Top Buys story, we have rounded up the very best books of the year in both the fashion and lifestyle categories. Better yet, there is a little something for everyone. For instance, if you like light reading and a dab of humor, Brad Goreski’s Born To Be Brad: My Life and Style, So Far, is ideal. If you are looking for something that really covers the ins-and-outs of the fashion industry, you can’t look any further than the must-read memoirs by Kate Moss and Grace Coddington—Kate: The Kate Moss Book and Grace: A Memoir, respectively—and the fancy-schmancy Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations book. For gorgeous photography, both The Sartorialist’s new street style book, The Sartorialist: Closer, and The Selby’s new foodie book, Edible Selby, are ideal. And if you are ready to find and define your personal style, we suggest checking out Andrea Linett’s I Want to Be Her!: How Friends & Strangers Helped Shape My Style and Julia Chaplin’s Gypset Travel, a guide to gypset (gypsy + jetset) travel style. With these ideas in mind, grab a cup of hot chocolate and click through for the details! Happy reading!
