Is ultimately a checklist for women who want a classical style--not for fad followers!

I've read so many wardrobe checklist books and none of them seem to be saying anythig new. Perhaps this is because the requirements for an acceptable wardrobe never really change. I agree that there are basic closet items that are helpful such as camisoles, jeans, suit jackets, evening dresses, but what demographic are these books addressing? What type of woman? What lifestyle? What size? It is important to say. It is not enough to say "style checklist." What kind of style? The conventional, cor...more

"The Style Checklist" by Lloyd Boston was everything I hoped it would be and needed to read. I confess, I'm the girl who gets confused buying an outfit unless there's one like it on a manakin right in front of me. I'd just stand there thinking, What will I wear this with, does it match, will these pieces go together or look ridiculous?

The Style Checklist is a straight forward easy to understand guide to building a wardrobe. I love it! He names 10 must have items in each of the 10 sections, and...more

No exactly a novel, but it’s already in goodreads so I’ll add it to my list ;-)

I’m revamping my wardrobe and borrowed several fashion books from the library. This was the first... each page is dedicated to a “classic” item of clothing that the author thinks every woman should have in her closet.

The author opens the book with a prologue in which he states that well-dressed women don’t have huge closets. They have a few quality pieces that they recycle. Less is more. Love that! The trick is to ha...more

This was a fun read. More useful to someone still in the workforce. Also for a young person, probably working in a larger city. That said, I enjoyed the approach that Mr. Boston used. Chapters are headed Work, Weekend, Saturday Night, Travel, etc. Within each chapter, stylish choices are presented. For example Saturday Night starts off with The Party Dress. Options and essentials pertaining to the dress, in this case, are given a 1-page discussion. The highlighted item (dress) is in a full-color...more

This book is helpful in the sense of deciding what to keep in your closet and providing some basic guidance on other items that complement each piece. For example, if you wear a striped boat neck shirt, it should look good with dark wash jeans and heels. There isn't much by way of specific body advice and some of the items seem a bit outdated (twin sets, really?) while trying to put a modern spin on them. That said, this stylist has great taste, so I appreciated seeing how he combines things. Th...more

I like this book and Lloyd has a lot of good information. Most of the information is geared to women working outside of the home. I wish that it had more help for those of us that do not work outside the home but don't want to live in sweats and t-shirts either.

2.5 stars. It was ok, but I guess I thought there'd be more about what to choose for specific body types - it was all rather vague. Interesting to see what some people think are "essentials" that most regular people can't afford....

I don't like style books that are just a list of items. I don't need 1 suit, much less 3. There wasn't really much to take away from the book as Boston isn't teaching you how to figure out your own must have list.
Mel
I can't say I learned much but it is reassuring to know a basic black dress never goes out of style.
R
Pretty good, gives lots of practical advice. Liked his other book as well.
