The Bookworm Presents: Style Me Vintage - Clothes

Theres been alot of buzz over the blogesphere in the last few months about the latest offering in the 'Style Me Vintage' series: 'Clothes'. In the past I've reviewed the Hair and Make-up books from the series so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book!  >Style Me Vintage Clothes is written by vintage clothing expert (and Vintage Mafia member) Naomi Thompson (who also writes the blog Vintage Secret

The book starts with an introduction to 'What is Vintage' and a handy guide that helps you date your vintage items. There,s also tips on how to develop your own vintage style and top tips for buying vintage. The book is then split into vintage looks by era with a mixture of original vintage and repro pieces used to represent the eras. 

There's a handy list for each era of items required to produce a day and an evening look as well and information on the main shapes looks and influences for the era, new fashions and a few different looks for each era. At the end there is a 'Useful Extras' section with information on underwear and shapewear, swimwear, how to put on vintage clothing, maintenance of vintage clothing and a great list of where to shop and labels to look out for. 

I found Style Me Vintage Clothes a fantastic guide to creating vintage looks. This beautifully illustrated book would be useful for any vintage lover from beginners to vintage aficionados!
