Gok Wan clearly has Marmite similarities. You either love him or you hate him. I'm unfortunately in the latter camp. I hate the way he has more pictures of himself than the clothes. I really hate the way he says "curvy girls" or "juicy girls". All the styles seem to rely on belts or high heels - two of my personal nemeses. The ideas all seem to have a similar feel to them too. Hopefully there is more inspiration further in the book!

There was one chapter which saved this book from a dire 1 star r

I think Gok Wan is a wonderful person who always comes across as very genuine and wanting to help people who have trouble with their image, style and self esteem. He has a vibrant personality that just shines on the screen and the page. I found this book really useful to get ideas for wardrobe basics and things I could invest in to update my look. Worth a flick through at the library if nothing else, definitely!

He does advocate style that lasts and most of the outfits in this book are classic and normal everyday wear but he shows you how to use them as a base and incorporate them into the latest fashion trends without busting your budget !

I would have given it a higher rating if I read it few years back. The pictures are outdated (to be honest) and all the models are around 30-40 plus whereas I'm just in my 20s. The trend is not what I'm expecting though so I'm quite disappointed with the contents.

not worth the buy. Gok comes across as really annoying in books and ok on tv.... weird!!

An okay book, which gave me some ideas. I can see why someone might find his writing style annoying. I think the book needs less pictures of him and more of the clothes he's talking about.
