Synopsis

You are more than what you wear—but what you wear is still important! A tween guide to personal fashion and flair.

What you wear can be a powerful form of self-expression, and true style is about dressing to express yourself so you feel self-assured and confident in any situation. Fashion is also a great way to discover your unique personality—and show it off to the world!

Expressionista covers everything you need to know about fashion, including how to identify your own Fashion Persona (Classic, Natural, Romantic, Dramatic, Trend Tracker, or Mood Dresser), set up an awesome closet, track trends, shop on a budget, dress for your body type, and more. Packed with tips and quotes from fashion icons as well as fun quizzes and resources galore, this book is must-have personal style inspiration!
