(For those of you who are unfamiliar with Ines she is France's style icon, supermodel and muse to Karl Lagerfield, among other amazing things.)

1. "Outfits are out"- You don't have to coordinate every thing and probably shouldn't.
2. "Bye-bye bling"- Good taste is more important than logos and glitter. Dress simply and you'll look rich. (it's hard for me to leave the glitter behind!)
3. "Explore"- Don't be afraid to try new labels and mix high with low. Trends are great in small doses.
4. "If it feels good, wear it"- Don't be a slave to style for the sake of the style. If something feels too tight, high or short- leave it at home or better yet- donate it!
5. "Worship no idols"- Amen! Don't follow one designer or icon religiously. Be yourself!
6. "Beware of good taste"- Rules of good taste aren't always to be followed. Navy and black together- sure thing! White year round- you bet!
My favorite tip was to always pair something loose with something tight. After thinking about this and guide-point 4 I began wearing my skinny jeans (which I LOVE) with short tunic style tops that are loose and easy. The combination, along with a pair of Saludos flats is heavenly. I have worn this A LOT lately.
I highly recommend this book. I didn't adopt every tip or suggestion from the book but it gave me new perspective on dressing with style but still staying true to myself and my life.
