Fashion Flash Book Review: Talk About Fashion by Catherie Schvvaab
This book covers so much territory that it could have been a hot mess. But in the sure, smart hands of the fashion editor of Paris Match, it offers backstage fashion industry insights as well as original and useful fashion tips. For example, many fashion guides break down styles into specific types eg classic, romantic, rocker chic and sporty. These are desctibed in random outfits. By contrast Talk About Fashion shows how each fashion type works in a wide range of situations including, work, casual, and after five. To see how different styles are expressed in real life activities, it allows people to espress themselves throughout their life. Genuinely helpful.
My favorite section is an indepth look at vintage clothing. I love everything vintage, but I seem to freeze at vntage clothing fairs and feal markets. I just know what to buy and what is really wearable. Talk About Fashion has IMO simply the best guide to vintage fashion– and there are sections for both men and women. The book offers an illustraed guide to the vintage basics that wil always work. This short list includes pea coats, high quality sweater sets, pin striped rousers and anything in leopard. She breaks down the different styles of vintage dresses by era and shows how to wear them today.
She even has an equally useful list of classics for men including trench coats, striped shirts, Aaran sweater and tartan scarf.( Actually I think I could borrow these too).
If you have graduated from basic fashion and want to crank up your style, Talk About Fashion is a book that you will enjoy and use.
