Nina Garcia’s current list of appointments reads like a 20-year career: fashion director of Marie Claire, judge on Project Runway, Target’s 2010 Style Expert, and author of four books on style. It is the latter, however, that has us most excited. Nina Garcia’s Look Book: What To Wear For Every Occasion—a 336-page guide to dressing for every occasion—was released yesterday, complete with bright illustrations from Ruben Toledo and a plethora of answers to universal style dilemma.
The premise of Nina Garcia’s Look Book is to provide women with the answer to one basic yet common question: What should I wear? Style advice is offered for a slew of life’s occasions including job interviews, first dates, formal parties, important presentations, casual weddings, jury duty and more. Each possible scenario is supplemented with a selection of pieces and accessories, as well as strategies to create the looks.
Most importantly, Nina’s advice is well-timed. Rather than offer endless shopping advice and impractical options for women on a budget, Nina offers tips on utilizing your current collection, investing in a few really good things, shopping from your own closet, and, thereby, answering your own style quandaries without going over budget.
Nina Garcia’s Look Book: What To Wear For Every Occasion ($16.31) is available now from Amazon.com.
