How to Get Dressed

A Costume Designer's Secrets for Making Your Clothes Look, Fit, and Feel Amazing

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Costume designer Alison Freer’s styling kit is a magical bag of tricks, built to solve every single wardrobe malfunction on earth. TV and film productions wait for nothing, so her solutions have to work fast. In How to Get Dressed, Alison distills her secrets into a fun, comprehensive style guide focused on rethinking your wardrobe like a fashion expert and making what’s in your closet work for you. She provides real-world advice about everything style-related, including:

   • Making every garment you own fit better
   • Mastering closet organization
   • The undergarments you actually need
   • The scoop on tailors and which alterations are worth it
   • Shopping thrift and vintage like a rockstar

Instead of repeating boring style “rules,” Alison breaks the rules and gets real about everything from bras to how to deal with inevitable fashion disasters. Including helpful information such as how to skip ironing and the dry cleaners, remove every stain under the sun, and help clueless men get their sartorial acts together, How to Get Dressed has hundreds of insider tips from Alison’s arsenal of tools and expertise.

From Publishers Weekly

May 04, 2015 – Freer is a fashion columnist for the website xoJane as well as a freelance Hollywood costume designer. She's refreshingly down-to-earth in her first book, which is packed full of helpful tips for building and maintaining a stylish wardrobe. By the time readers finish it, Freer will have convinced them to find a good tailor; toss outmoded fashion rules (go ahead and wear boots in the summer and white after Labor Day, Freer urges); and reorganize closets so that everything yes, everything! is on a hanger. While charmingly designed in a gold, black, and white color scheme, the book would have benefitted from a few photographs or at least more illustrations. And while Freer should be commended for a friendly and thorough tome, the truth is that there's not much that's new here. But for those looking for a comprehensive and highly readable clothes-care book, this is the one.
