As a whole, this valiant efforts comes across as rather preachy, sort of self-congratulatory, and lost about what exactly the topic at hand was supposed to be.

Synopsis

Style icon Tziporah Salamon profiles the chicest and most celebrated older women of today, showcasing their wardrobes and revealing the contents of their closets, while imparting practical tips on how to put together beautiful outfits.
 
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; color, 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.
