The Little Black Dress Book: How to dress perfectly for any occasion

Review by Ceri Wheeldon

Fashion fades, style is eternal – Yves Saint Laurent.

Tracy Martin helps all women find their own individual style with confidence. I have always had a passion for clothes – just ask my husband who despairs of the amount of wardrobe space I need, so this is the perfect book for me to have sitting on my dressing table. It would also make a lovely birthday gift for friends.

In The Little Black Dress book Tracy Martin talks you through how to dress for practically any occasion, from weddings to picnics in the park. Not only in the LBD but trousers, skirts, accessories and mixing vintage with high street finds. Textiles, shape, cut and design are all taken into account in helping to create your own personal style guide.

Great tips to revisit our style over 50

Tracy guides you through the process of finding your style to reflect your body shape and personality. It is a great way to help revisit how we dress over 50 as her tips are applicable for women of any age.

I also love reading about the history of clothes as well as looking for tips as to how to pull different looks together, and Tracy pulls these two elements together perfectly in The Little Black Dress.

I loved the illustrations – worth buying the book just for those!

If you want to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons , Tracy offers great tips.
A great guide for those who want to dress with confidence and style, whatever the occasion, and whatever your age!
The Perfect Little Black Dress: How to dress perfectly for any occasion is available from Amazon
