Women would always complain of ‘Nothing to wear’ in front of a closet full of clothes. But Liz Uy, Philippines’ very own Rachel Zoe, stylist to the stars, simplified it for us in her #1 Bestseller Stylized. I love lists and organised thinking. Her way of presenting to the modern Filipina that we just need basic staples in our closets and we can go wild mixing and matching. We can express our personalities through our accessories and choices what to partner the basic staple with.
Liz Uy outlined 10 Style Essentials for every women. As long as you have these in your closet, you are good to go. Here they are:
1. The White T-Shirt
2. The Little Black Dress
4. White Button-Down Shirt
7. Tank Top
10. Pencil Skirt
Liz Uy enlisted her beautiful and sexy celebrity and model friends to visually showcase her concepts in her book, each one for every style essentials. You got Anne Curtis, Bea Alonzo, Kris Aquino, Georgina Wilson, Isabella Daza, Bianca Gonzales, Alex Gonzaga, Sarah Geronimo, Marian Rivera, and Julia Barretto.
I like that it is straightforward. You can tell that the book was conceptualised well. It wasn’t a throw-everything-there type of fashion book. It also allows a women’s own personal style and not forcing a fashion trend. You get to salivate at the pretty dresses, bags and shoes. I love that Liz Uy gathered her friends to this project rather than using unknown models. They were all gorgeous and it was also because of Liz impeccable styling. It was good that the book was hardbound and pages were crisp with saturated colours. It exudes class and a perfect coffee table book.
Stylized by Liz Uy is a book for the modern women. It is a good guide for those discovering their own style. This is the best place to start to a love affair with fashion.
Congratulations Liz Uy! This one is a gem. Can’t wait for more bestselling books from you. May I suggest a book of pregnancy fashion and fashion for every profession. I would definitely buy those. More power!
