"How To Get Dressed" by Alison Freer is a really awesome book! Miss Freer is a costume designer for Hollywood. In her book she talks about proper fit, clothing styles, how to properly care for clothes, a comprehensive list of types of cloth and how to care for them, and more.
Not only does Freer talk about how to properly dress for women, she also has chapter devoted to the men in their lives.
My personal favorite chapter was "Dumb Fashion Rules", where she discusses rules we can really go without like " you can't wear white after Labor Day" or "don't mix patterns".
One word of advice that I need to put in this review is that she is a strong believer in tailoring. Most of us don't have a budget to have our entire wardrobe tailored to perfection and a lot of her tips and ideas revolve around the "perfect fit" mantra.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Freer mixed humor, real life stories, and common sense making a fashionably wonderful book.
