What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life - book review & giveaway - CLOSED

What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life

Ageless Secrets of Style

Author: Kim Johnson Gross


Do you have a closet full of clothes you never wear, but someday hope to?  Or a closet full of clothes, yet nothing to wear?  Do you like to read?  Do you like to read a book that is also a bit humorous?  Or one that makes total sense?  Or how about one that has tip and hints that make perfect sense?

What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life was not only easy to read, but a fun book to read.  It is also packed full of information that does not tell you what to wear, but instead helps you figure out what clothing styles are best for you.

I know that I am at a point in my life where shorts that are too short are not for me, but I don't necessarily want to wear "mom jeans" either.  I have a closet full of clothes that I have had for years that I never wear.  That is where this book, What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life comes in handy.  I haven't gotten very far in cleaning out my closet and setting up just for me, at my current point in my life, but I am working on it.

Ms. Gross first burst on to the scene with her Chic Simple series (a series that I'd consider to be the bible of fashion) and she's continuing her Assess, Dejunk, and Renew war cry in this book. Gaining hold of your closet and learning to dress for your own pleasure so that you enjoy EVERYTHING that you put on will help you to "evolve" your style..

Other key elements:

  • Dressing your age
  • Shop Smart for the rest of your life
  • Jewelry
  • Colors
  • Pulling it all together
  • and more....
