Description

In The Art of Dressing, Tziporah Salamon features women known for their personal style and women whom she admires and who inspire her, all over the age of 50. Salamon also includes sections breaking down the principles of dressing, such as: knowing your body and what looks good on it, shopping for the essentials; colour, balance, and proportion; and, above all, good tailoring. Salamon teaches women to be chic without spending a fortune. For her, dressing is about joy, play, and creativity. The women included are stylish creative types, from well-known icons such as fashion writer Amy Fine Collins, artist Michele Oka Doner, and dancer Carmen de Lavallade, to less famous but high-profile women who are great dressers such as Marjorie Stern and Ruth Lande Shuman, and Tziporah herself. Full of inspiration and how-to instruction that readers can apply to their own wardrobes and outfits, The Art of Dressing is the ultimate guide for the stylish older woman.show more

Review quote

"'It takes time and years to know who you are, and self-exploration is important in dressing well, ' says Tziporah Salamon, 66-year-old author of the new book "The Art of Dressing" (Rizzoli, out now) -- and who, by the way, has over 25,000 followers on Instagram."--New York Post "A fun read and certainly a sharp response and dismissal of fast fashion. Eccentric, yes, Life-affirming, yes."--The Style Saloniste "Why bother with season after season of fashion trends when you know what works?That's the philosophy street style favorite Tziporah Salamon (above) evidently seems to follow. Known for always catching late photographer Bill Cunningham's eye, the author and fashion lover has not only starred in Lanvin campaigns (hello, chic!) but is also the woman behind a new tome of images we cannot put down, The Art of Dressing: Ageless, Timeless, Original Style ($33; amazon.com).So what's so hot about the book? Basically, Salamon tapped 10 sublimely fabulous women over the age of 50 to offer a closer look at what goes into their decidedly ornate wardrobes. In the book, you'll find images of their closets in addition to easy-to-follow tips on dressing for any and every occasion. Salamon also made sure to throw in the answers to questions we've all wondered: What really is an essential? Is this the right proportion? Does my new jacket need tailoring?"--InStyle.comshow more
