5 Books on Style and Fashion

It does not matter if your wardrobe is bursting, or if the size of your shoe collection makes pre-People Power Imelda Marcos look like a penny-pinching peasant: There will be moments in your life when you stand before your closet and simply have NOTHING TO WEAR. With the festive season upon us, it may be even more challenging to put together enough party-ready-yet-work-appropriate outfits to last through what’s left of 2012.

To minimise the occurrence of these sartorially challenged episodes, what you need is inspiration. Find your muse in the diverse range of books on style and fashion on the following pages, including a collection of flamboyant street-style images, a biography of one of fashion’s biggest icons, and a quirky little illustrated volume dedicated to womankind’s four favourite things: Shoes, chocs, bags and frocks.
