The Style Strategy : A Less-is-More Approach to Staying Chic and Shopping Smart Hardback
by Nina Garcia
"Style Strategy" teaches readers that looking great and feeling classic isn't synonymous with emptying your bank account.
Nina wants to show women how to keep oneself looking stylish and chic while saving money.
Armed with her expert 'Style Strategy', Nina wants to help shoppers navigate alternatives to attaining high-end fashion 'looks' through a variety of options.
The DNA of her 'Style Strategy' consists of three core questions. 'What do I have? What do I need? What do I want?' According to Nina, answering each question honestly before making any purchase for oneself helps to eliminate unnecessary spending.
She elaborates on each question using the entertaining prose that has drawn thousands of readers to her previous titles.

Review by Tmyers526
I was eagerly awaiting this book! I found it to be so full of helpful tips on what to consider when shopping, especially given the current state of the economy. Reading it actually made me want to clean out my closet and go through everything. Loved it!
Review by VirginiaGill
This book was every bit as good as the other two she's done. Following her advice to remake things in our closets that we love but are no longer in fashion has led me to something I smile over daily. The two skirts I've kept for nearly 20 years because the fabric is so beautiful are now pillow cover on the chairs in my office. I can see them in bright daylight instead of the dark corner of my closet. It's oddly liberating.Grab the book, throw open your closet, and have fun!

While The Style Strategy contains no earth shattering advice for women on a budget (invest in classics, skimp on trends, work with what you already have, etc...), I can't describe how nice it is to hear Nina Garcia advocating questioning expensive impulse items and plugging Target. Though I have no doubt that Garcia may never had to economize the way some of us do, it is evident that she really thought out her advice to the rest of us. If you already own Garcia's other two books, is is definitely a retread of the same concepts, but the stylish illustrations by Ruben Toledo are always a treat.
