Books That Every Fashionista Should Read

In the age of the Internet and the countless information it gives, some people might say that books are becoming extinct. Although I don't have much time to read these days, I always manage to get inspiration from a fashion book once in a while. 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.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
