Guest Post: Books That Every Fashionista Should Read

Book Reviews

Hi guys! My name’s Ruya and I’m the guest blogger for today! I run the fashion and lifestyle blog
over at Sweet, Short and Stylish. I’m filling in for Jess while she’s out having the time of her life
in Korea (so jealous!). Since we all know Jess is a bookworm, I thought I’d share a post about
my favorite fashion-related books. They’re a great way to get inspired on a lazy Sunday and
figure out what really goes on in the minds of fashion icons…or if you just don’t know what to

wear tomorrow.

Chanel and Her World by Edmonde Charles-Roux

Every fashionista knows about Chanel but do they know the extraordinary woman behind the
label? Filled with a large collection of rare photos and drawings, this book goes into detail about

Coco Chanel’s rise to fame. It’s a great read for any aspiring designer out there!

Lauren Conrad Style by Lauren Conrad

If you’re a beginner to fashion or just want to go over the basics, I highly recommend Lauren
Conrad’s book. The book covers many topics such as how to mix expensive pieces with

cheaper ones and focuses on helping you to define your own style.

365 Style by Nicky Hilton

If you’re looking for something a bit newer, check out Nicky Hilton’s book. Hilton’s down-to-earth
writing style makes it an easy read and there’s many creative tips to updating your wardrobe.

Oh and her 365 system is brilliant!

The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style by Lilliana Vazquez

Fashion is expensive, style is not. Vazquez proves that you don’t have to spend millions in order
to look it. It’s the perfect guide that’s filled with outfit suggestions, budget advice, and detailed

shopping lists. Perfect for any college fashionista!

Refinery 29: Style Stalking by Piera Gelardi

If you’re a big fan of street style or fashion blogs, then get ready to be inspired with this book!
This style guide is packed with hundreds of ideas and photos from real-life women on the
streets of NYC. What makes this book stand out from other style guides, is the emphasis on
going out of your comfort zone and experimenting with your style.

I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to stay tuned for more guest posts from other
amazing bloggers! A big thank you to Jess for letting me post today, I hope you’re having an amazing time in Korea!
