Book Review – The Accessory Handbook

The Accessory Handbook: A Costume Designer's Secrets for Buying, Wearing, and Caring for AccessoriesThe Accessory Handbook: A Costume Designer’s Secrets for Buying, Wearing, and Caring for Accessories by Alison Freer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

For those who read Freer’s previous book, “How To Get Dressed” and liked it…go ahead an pick this up. It’s really more of a guidebook than a sit-and-read book, but if you struggle a bit with your wardrobe, particularly with accessories…then this is well worth it.

A great deal of this is just practical advice (basic pieces that work with every wardrobe), but there’s also a lot of encouragement. Freer wants you to play around, to experiment…AND she’s very clear that a snappy dresser does NOT have to spend a lot of money, which I appreciate.
