Change Your Clothes, Change Your Life

Change Your Clothes, Change Your Life by George Brescia, 279 pages

Whether we like it or not, what we wear says a lot about who we are, and Brescia uses his book to argue for making every outfit a statement, and one that makes a good impression on those who see us (including ourselves, as we look in the mirror). He outlines several rules about fit and color, as well as making sure that every piece of clothing flatters us (because why wear something that doesn't?), but the bit that really stuck out to me was his insistence on every outfit being a Perfect 10: an outfit that makes the wearer look and feel her* very best. Seems like solid advice to me, if only for the internal mental health effect.

Will I take all of Brescia's recommendations to heart? Probably not. (Heels and silk blouses are not exactly conducive to my lifestyle.) But on the whole, this stylist-to-the-stars offers up some good style rules to live by.

*I say "her" because Brescia is talking exclusively to women about women's fashion through all but one chapter of this book.
