About the Book: It costs us not to look our best!

Dressing poorly costs us interviews, first impressions, money . . . and a whole lot more. But you can look good all the time, asserts Amy E. Goodman, the magazine maven and style expert who’s a regular on NBC’s Today show. Her one-stop fashion and beauty book cuts through the information overload to teach you how to dress to impress whatever your age, lifestyle, or size—while staying true to yourself and your budget.

Who can afford clothes and makeup that don’t fit or flatter? Since every piece needs to count, Amy uses snappy, clear comparisons to show how to regain control of your wardrobe and beauty shelf by simplifying your choices. Cleverly organized like a woman’s closet, wear this, toss that! outlines the 30 pieces of clothing and 30 accessories plus beauty basics every woman must own. Then Amy builds beyond the essentials, walking you through your closet, rack by rack, shelf by shelf, and drawer by drawer, telling you what to wear and what to toss. By sorting through the items you already have and taking inventory of what you need, you can build upon what you own and finally create the winning total look you’ve always dreamed of!

Amy provides immediate style answers for real women:
• 700 wear/toss items
• Over 1,000 product suggestions
• You-heard-it-here-first steals and deals
• On-sale items to avoid regardless of price
• Styling tips for every body type
• The ultimate shoe guide: you’ll never question which footwear is right again!
• 24 “save-me” products to rescue you from any fashion emergency

Filled with candid tips from pro stylists and designers, along with Amy’s unfiltered guidance, wear this, toss that! will inspire you to invest in yourself, shake off the wardrobe blahs, and wake up your looks from head to toe.

Step into your closet. Do you have: A ruffled tank that sweetly frames your faceor a blouse with overpowering ruffles?

A long cardigan that graces over your curves or a super drapey wrap that resembles a blanket?

A pencil skirt that lands just above your knees or a bell skirt that bunches at your middle?

A cropped, straight-leg pant with a flat front or wrinkled, baggy cargo pants?

A shade of red lipstick that says “bombshell” or one that’s says “I’m trying too hard”?

If any of these questions make you cringe, then wear this, toss that! is your go-to guide. It’s for women of any size, age, or lifestyle who realize they just don’t like the clothes, accessories, or makeup they’re wearing and want to make a change. Almost instantly you’ll learn what works, what’s got to go, and why.

  1. Great review - I'll bow out of this one as this is information that NEVER clicks for me. :)

  2. My fashion mistake- One time I was going to an important business meeting. However, I was very rushed in the morning and didn't stop to check how I looked. Near the end of the meeting I looked down and noticed that my shirt was inside out, and it was very noticeable!
    How embarrassing!

  3. I have a couple of fashion mistakes. The first one is wearing one black shoe and one navy blue shoe to work. The other is wearing one of my shirts to work inside out. Very embarrassing!
