Waterstones Says

A genius concept aimed at enhancing everybody's wardrobes, Kaye's brilliantly structured Style Thesaurus models a wide range of fashion combinations for all occasions.

At once a lexicon of fashion and a style guide, The Style Thesaurus is the essential wardrobe companion for all fashion lovers.

Style can be used to fit in or to stand out, to send different messages and, with the right knowledge, it can also be adjusted according to mood or occasion. The Style Thesaurus examines a wide range of looks, investigates their roots in history and culture, and shows how they can be curated or combined.

Organized into groups reflecting the origins of the style - Utility, Music & Dance, Leisure etc - and fully illustrated, each entry includes examples, near synonymous styles, styling details, pairings and colour story. Entries include everything from Neo-Victoriana, Dandy and Rockabilly to Normcore, Modest or Afrofuturist.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The "clothes we wear... function as a language that can, to some extent, be read," asserts journalist Kane in her comprehensive debut survey of clothing styles that "reappear time and time again" on city streets and in high-fashion magazine spreads. In each brief entry, Kane distills a style's history, signature garments, and role in popular culture... Students of fashion will be enlightened and delighted by this detail-rich resource, and even novices will be persuaded that "we are all stylists, assembling meaning to find our tribes." - Publisher's Weekly
