Always in Style with Color Me Beautiful

Doris Pooser, Author Acropolis Books (NY) $16.95 (198p) ISBN 978-0-87491-785-7
Expanding on Color Me Beautiful, Pooser here extends the seasonal color theory of dressing (depending on their skin tone, women fall into one of four categories named for the seasons: Summers and Winters look best in cool colors, Springs and Autumns should wear warmer shades) to include ""flow'' colorsrelated shades from all seasonal categories that can be used to accent basic colors. Also included is a detailed examination of clothing styles deemed suitable for various body types. The extensive amount of information, presented in charts and text, may overwhelm readers as they attempt to determine whether their bodies are straight, soft straight, sharp straight, curved or soft curved. But for those bored with each season's allotted hues, and for those who want help in choosing a wardrobe and don't mind spending a lot of time sorting out the data, Pooser's guide is full of sartorial advice.
