Cho (Looking Terrific and Looking, Working, Living Terrific 24 Hours a Day presents a women's fashion guide to dressing well, based on six ""essential image-types''sporty-casual, classic-elegant, exotic-dramatic, arty-offbeat, feminine-romantic and sexy-alluring. Studying the appropriate fashion category (first determined by taking a quiz), the reader learns both the basic and creative aspects of her particular style of dress in casual as well as formal situations. There are plenty of well-illustrated ideas, but Cho's quasi-psychologizing is simplistic. One wishes, too, that Cho would have addressed body types in assessing styles of dress, instead of relying wholly on image or self-concept. The confident stand to gain little by this book, but there are many tips for would-be fashion plates. First serial to Good Housekeeping; paperback rights to Ballantine; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates; author tour. (April 21)
