Susannah and Trinny are great to talking about what cut of a sleeve/collar/pant/skirt might look good on a specific body type....but their own recommendations for outfits and styles are ridiculous.

As always, these fashion mavens are funny and smart about what to wear and what not to wear.

These ladies really tell you how it is. This book tells you what to wear for many different occasions (and what not to wear). Everything from a first interview to school events. Also includes how much you can expect to spend at different stores for some of the different clothing items. Lots of humor throughout the book as these authors tell you what not to do.

The arrangement of this book is useful; some of the fashion ideas are not. There are 10 occasions:

The interview
Word wear
Work and play
School events
Summer wedding
Winter wedding
Summer holiday
Winter holiday
Partying
Underwear *

After showing dont-and-do models in a section, the authors list well-designed clothing in different price ranges. Finally, they add some interesting and useful tips for the occasion.

Within each section, fashion choices are offered for 3 groups:
Smart geared to the older woman,
Casual and
Trendy for the younger woman reading the book.

By reading the intro, the reader understands that some of the dont choices might be the right one in certain circumstances (conservative work environments, for example), but they chose different styles for those who want to leave the unimaginative and staid clothing choices behind.

Not having read the first book, I felt somewhat at a disadvantage. Let me tell you: Some of these designs might get a woman a date, but not much else. The photos really explain the text and the humor is fun.

* Underwear obviously isn't a particular occasion but the authors have some words of advice about peek-a-boo undies, a flabby tummy and the wrong bra.

The second book from the BBC duo of What Not To Wear covers what not to wear and what to wear for every occasion there is -- weddings, PTA meetings, etc.

Oversized softcover with those two British women we have been seeing recently on the TV talk shows. Full of color pics and tips.
