Its hard to write a review of a book with no plot but I really enjoyed Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Style. Maybe it's because I'm in the age group it's targeted at, or maybe it's because I just really love the magazine. (I even have a subscription). While this book is perfect for me, it's not going to be for everyone. First off, it would be more for someone into style or someone who wants style ideas. It also would be better for someone around the age of 17.

For teenage girls this book is a style guide to paradise. With six different "schools" of style: Girly, Edgy, Boho, Classic, Glam, and Indie, its not hard to see why this book covers all the basics no matter what kind of fashion statement your trying to make. In addition to defining the dress style, clothes, colors, and patterns that go with each of the six "schools," this book also covers the proper accessories (shoes, bags, jewelry, sunglasses and make-up)that go with

Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Style by Ann Shoket, is a book to inform readers about the latest fashion trends and outfits that will make everyone's’ jaw drop when you walk in a room.

This book isn't just for teenagers; a lot of the content isn't age-specific. There are style classifications (e.g. indie, glam, classic, edgy, etc) and how to dress in a particular style, and near the back of the book, names of different types of fashion items are given (e.g. types of sunglasses: aviators, cat eye, wayfarers, etc) which is useful if you want to learn how to identify them or wish to see how they can best be matched with other items. There are many photos and examples of ...more

I really enjoyed flipping through this book for style inspirations. I liked that it provided options for several different styles and I found that I like outfits from every one! The only thing that I didn't like about this book was that I feel it could have included even more distinct styles and/or more outfit suggestions. Also, I feel some of the outfits were a little unrealistic to wear out in public, when most girls I know just wear sweatpants to school. But maybe I'm asking a little too much ...more

Oh come on, gimme some credit. I used to work for a youth lifestyle magazine so I kinda know my way around these kind of things - and I'm a girl, okay - even though it doesn't naturally show, lol, and I found this satisfying. No, there's nothing faith-shatteringly new in here but Seventeen does what it does best: to provide the ultimate fashion tips for all types of girls. If you're kikay or if you are a big fan of any of these: Lauren Conrad, America's Next Top Model, The Olsen twins, then yes, ...more

I bought this book on a local book fair.. I thought it was great buy! This book shows you six fashion vibes which is : Girly, Edgy, Boho, Classic, Glam and Indie to suits your own personality. Basically I think this book is suitable for teenagers who are just starting to experiment with their looks. Inside also include some well known brand for each look to make shopping easier.

Overall, I think it's a great book!

i thought the book provided some great opinions and ideas on style that were appropriate to the age groups. I really loved the celebrity inspiration especially the emma watson page. It pretty much summed up teenage fashion into one book and provided help and ideas for anyone from rookie style to xtreme fashionista.

Concept/ideas: 5/5

This book was an amazing guide. Seventeen never fails to come out with good go-to guides that are use-able to say the least. They don't tend to go against bigger body types, such as myself, which I like. They have ideas and styles for every girl of every shape. This book was filled with a lot of tips, from girly to rocker.

Many thanks to Mariah H for reading adn reviewing this book for PSLA!

An excellent source for types of styles: girly, edgy, boho, classic, glam, and indie including accessories such as shoes, bags, jeans and swimsuits. This is a good source for any teen girl who wants to upgrade her personal style and fun for fashionistas like myself.

This book is great, it gives you all the pieces that you need to have in your closet for every style, plus picture!! I love that, the only but is, I think it is more for high school students and not so much for people that are more grown up, I mean, it says Seventeen!!

Great book, with lots of great fashion tips & ideas for every girl out there! Whether your style is girly, boho, indie, edgy or glam this book is a fun & creative read! Skim it or read it back to back in one sitting for some cool ideas for the next time you hit the mall. :)

Really great book, though the title might be a bit misleading. A better fit would be something regarding your personal type of style, because it focuses more on different styles and their accompanying closets than on basic fashion.
My love for Seventeen magazine motivated me to read this.
It has tips to identify your style, recommended stores, and finding the appropriate accessories, underwear, bathing suits and tips to rock your look.

So cool! Lots of advice for new hip fashion ideas. A great book to continually look through for ideas. I would recommend this to any teen wanting some fashion advice.
I actually got some really great ideas from this book! And the pictures were great! Well organized as well
