7 Fashion Books We Read and Loved

Couch. Fireplace. Hot chocolate. Blanket. A good fashion book. We’re totally in.

When a friend asked us for a fashion book recommendation today, we rattled off our top reads without hesitation. From fascinating non-fiction memoirs to style advice books to guilty pleasures, good reads are sometimes hard to come by.

If you’re looking for something good to read this month or an awesome Christmas gift for a friend, check these out:

1) Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington, Creative Director of American Vogue, tells the story of her early modeling days and rise to the top of the fashion ladder.

2) Refinery29: Style Stalking was literally just released and captures the best street style photography on the planet.

3) Study of Pose: 1,000 Poses by Coco Rocha breaks down the art of modelling 1,000 different ways by top model Coco Rocha.

4) The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own by Nina Garcia takes her genius style advice and distills it down to the basics.

5) Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger is the lesser known sequel of The Devil Wears Prada. This has guilty pleasure written all over it.

6) Fuck Yeah Menswear: Bespoke Knowledge for the Crispy Gentlemen by Keven Burrow and Lawrence Schlossman hits close to home as original fans of the Fuck Yeah Menswear Tumblr. This is perfect menswear poetry for the guy you don’t know what to buy.

7) Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella is one of many sequels to the original Confessions of a Shopaholic book and by far our favorite update on what Becky Bloomwood is up to next.
