Paris Street Style By Isabelle Thomas and Frédérique Veysset
I got this book for Christmas last year and it has been one of my very favourite books since then. All of the street style photos are amazing and so inspirational. It does a great job of capturing Paris fashion and the book has given me tons of ideas for my own style.
1000 Ideas by 100 Fashion Designers By Carolina Cerimedo
This book is full of amazing photographs and inspirational ideas. It talks about how various designers get their ideas for their designs, their creative process, and their views on fashion. I have learned so much about different designers from reading it. I love to flip through it when I am in need of inspiration.
Style Stalking By Christene Barbaric and Piera Gelardi
Style Stalking is a book created by the Editor-in-Chief Christene Barbaric and Executive Creative Director Piera Gelardi of the website Refinery29. The fashion is incredible and the book is extremely user friendly. It breaks fashion down into basic chapters dealing with such things as “mixed prints”, “good vintage”, and “metallics”. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves fashion.
How to be Parisian Wherever You Are By Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas
I bought this book only a couple of months ago and I have already read it ten times. It is written by four Frenchwomen and is about their take on what it really means to be a Parisienne. The book is so honest and it gives you inside look of how a Parisienne goes about her everyday life. Anyone with a good sense of humour should hugely enjoy this book.
The Gospel According to Coco Chanel By Karen Karbo
This book is about the life lessons from “the world’s most elegant woman”. I have only recently begun reading it but it has been highly entertaining so far. Coco Chanel is such a fashion icon and this is definitely a book that everyone should own. The funny and stylish take on Coco Chanel is very enjoyable and I can’t wait to continue reading it.
