How to Improve Your Style this World Book Day — Inside Out Style


Happy World Book Day! Let’s Crack Open a Universe of Style

Have you ever stopped to think about the magic a book holds? It’s a portal to countless worlds, a repository of wisdom whispered across centuries, and a wellspring of inspiration waiting to be tapped. As someone who spends a good chunk of my time lost in the pages of books on many topics as well as having written a few dedicated to style,  World Book Day feels like a giant celebration of everything these incredible objects represent.

So, here’s a question for you: what if style wasn’t just about the clothes on your back, but about the knowledge you carry within? After all, confidence and self-assuredness – hallmarks of true style – are often cultivated through the lessons we learn.

If you’re not a first-time reader here at Inside Out Style, you’ve consumed wisdom and gained knowledge from what you’ve read here that I hope has sparked an idea, given you a new perspective or just challenged you to rethink your assumptions about your style and what you wear.

Think about it. Maybe you devoured a book on colour theory (like I did back in the 1980s) and suddenly saw your wardrobe in a whole new light and finally understood why people asked if you were “feeling OK” every time you wore your mustard yellow jumper. Perhaps a biography of a fashion icon sparked a fire in you to express your own unique flair. Or maybe a book on personal branding helped you refine how you present yourself to the world.

Books have the power to transform us, not just outwardly, but inwardly as well. They can teach us about different cultures, historical trends, and the psychology behind what we wear. They can empower us to break free from fashion “rules” and embrace our individuality.

In my own journey with style, books have been a guiding light. They’ve introduced me to forgotten fashion eras, challenged my preconceptions about what looks good, and equipped me with the knowledge to create a wardrobe that reflects my personality and empowers me.

Here’s the beauty of it all: there’s a book out there waiting to be your style BFF. Whether you’re drawn to timeless classics on garment construction or crave the latest tips from fashion bloggers, there’s something for everyone. So this World Book Day, I challenge you to pick up a book that speaks to your sartorial soul.

Let it ignite your imagination, expand your knowledge, and most importantly, inspire you to express your unique style with confidence. After all, a well-read mind is a stylish mind, wouldn’t you agree?

Happy reading (and happy styling)!
