First the Rush of excitement the invitation brings, then the anxious question, "What should I wear?" And the usual answer, "I have nothing to wear." (i) Chic Simple (/i) takes care of both of those universal worries, not only showing what is appropriate for whatever occasion but helping you find the crucial outfit in your own closet.
More than a guide to the myriad events that make up modern life, this is a volume that helps you understand how to build a wardrobe and master the trick to adding the essential modification for each season.
To accomplish this, (i) Chic Simple (/i) begins by asking you to assess your body type, lifestyle, and budget and then shows you how to assemble a flexible but affordable basic wardrobe that will make you look and feel great at any event - a wedding, a charity ball, a funeral, a bar mitzvah, a board meeting, a dinner date, a Saturday brunch, or a night at the opera or ballet. It's an easy-to-use guide, whether you're on the West Coast, East Coast, or in between, to dressing for life, season by season.

You're invited to an evening wedding in Atlanta in July--and you live in Quebec. Or maybe you're going to court to fight a speeding ticket. Or your high-school reunion is next week. What on earth are you going to wear?
Have no fear, the Chic Simple folks are here to put your worries to rest. What Should I Wear? Dressing for Occasions combines the classy, artsy photography and graphic style of past Chic Simple titles with comprehensive help for working out those wardrobe conundrums. You'll learn how to clean out your closet--and stock it with flattering looks that go beyond the black dress or suit. Geared toward both men and women, the book covers the sometimes dreaded "casual day" at work; how to accessorize; how to pick shoes for any outfit; how to clean your clothes to preserve color, texture, and shape; and best of all, what to wear to almost any occasion, be it a funeral, barbecue, shower, job interview, rock concert, gallery opening, a New Year's eve bash, or a night at the opera. What Should I Wear? also covers (pun intended) international dress codes, so you'll fit in whether you're visiting the Middle East or Seattle, where it's acceptable by many to wear jeans to a semiformal wedding.
The book is peppered with fun, sometimes racy quotes ("This dress exacerbates the genetic betrayal that is my legacy" --Janeane Garofalo in Romy and Michele's High School Reunion). But the most important one is from the authors themselves: "The more you know, the less you need."From the Back Cover:
"Beware once you've read this book. There are no more excuses except 'I'd rather be wearing a paper bag.' Delightfully informative, witty, and, thank heavens, seldom overbearing, this book would make a great roommate or mother." - WENDY WASSERSTEIN Author of The Heidi Chronicles
"Houston, we have a problem - patch me in to Chic Simple. But first, a Cybill advisory for any woman with spiked heels and strappy sandals: Wear them only when lying down." - CYBILL SHEPHERD
"Armed with this wonderfully informative book and a full length mirror, you will always be simply chic." - CAROLINA HERRERA
