There’s a revolution sweeping through the fashion and beauty industries right now: you don’t have to be young to have style. A new generation of women are in the spotlight, and they are inspirational, confident, and in their prime.

In Style Forever, fashion journalist and blogger Alyson Walsh celebrates the world’s most stylish women and finds out how they look so amazing. She shares the tricks picked up during her years working with glossy magazines and offers expert advice on looking fabulous, no matter your age or budget—things like investing in a kick—ass jacket, a good haircut, and a pair of shoes you can damn well walk in. Featuring a list of the best-ever products from six beauty editors as well as the grown-up wardrobe essentials and the best fashion hot spots in New York and London, this is the only fashion bible you will ever need. Beautifully illustrated throughout by fashion illustrator Leo Greenfield, Style Forever is for any woman who refuses to be invisible.

Fabulous grown up style guide


It's not a big book - at just under 6" x 7.5", hardcover and nicely illustrated. An easy read. Looks at first glance like some good basic advice, concisely written, with the added bonus of enough information to enable you to easily source things. What I love about this book is that it includes such interesting bits of information that may well lead the reader on a bigger journey as soon as you are able to put the book down and jump on Google. For example the section on the tunic mentions "dress of the year award" at the fashion museum in Bath England which Mary Quant first won in 1963. All the winners over the years are on display there, so right away I'm keen to google search that to look at the designs. The book is full of little avenues for me to detour at my leisure. The biggest message in the book is about developing your own style, which is perfectly suited to the 40, 50 or 60+ woman. There is a two page spread on each of seven style tribes, with how-to tips and a good list of people who dress in that style (most of whom, as an Aussie I haven't heard of so will be looking them up), where to find that style of clothes and a summary of the essentials. There are two page spreads on several inspirational women, chapters offering advice on skincare with a DIY facial massage routine, ageless beauty tips, wardrobe advice, styling basics, looking after body and mind, best ever beauty products, and even favourite hot spots to visit in NY and London. What I love about this book is the way it leads you to think about developing your own unique style, rather than copying the style of others, in a witty, easy to read style, and with depth and sincerity. It's a great read for any 50+ woman and would make a fabulous gift for the big 0 birthdays.
