If the glow of your computer screen is beginning to burn your retinas for your insatiable appetite for beautifully dressed fashion bloggers, boooooyyy do we have the solution for you. It’s called a BOOK. You can, like, actually hold it in your hands. You know, take it to the beach and actually be able to read it under the bright sunlight, unlike your touch screen cell phone. Super amazeballs/famous blogger Jane Aldridge from Sea of Shoes wrote the foreword for the Style Yourself guide, which features outfits from all your fash faves (yes, even Tavi, Karla, and Susie) and offers sound advice on how to cop their looks. Our favorite part though? The “remixes”! Three bloggers are shown sporting a trend in three different ways (JUST LIKE WE DO EVERY WEEK!!), so of course we HAD to pick our favorite looks and share them with you! Buy the entire Style Yourself book for the full experience.

First up: monochromatic. Dressing in one color makes you long and lean, and Style Yourself says to “add lots of texture for visual variety.” Zanita Whittington of Zanita wears head-to-toe yellow (daring) with a lemon motorcycle jacket, dandelion pleated skirt, and tangerine stacked sandals. Michelle Koesnadi of Glisters and Blisters took jeans and a tank top to new heights by coordinating her entire outfit (even her bag!) in shades of blue. Justyna Baraniecki of Chichichic! went for smooth dark chocolate brown from top to bottom, which we LOVE. The fur accent is purrrrfect.

Music + fashion = automatic two thumbs up from us, so obviously we are into these three rocker tee looks. Charlene O’Rourke of s.t.r.u.t.t stole this Slayer (!!!) shirt from her boyfriend and dressed it up with mega glam hair and makeup. Blogger Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon has a similar story—she borrowed her Pink Floyd tee from her BF and paired it with bow tie platforms and a pink tulip skirt to make the ensemble extra girly. Jasna Zellerhoff of Fashion Jazz layered her Bon Jovi shirt under a randomly buttoned cardigan and layers of pearls for an unexpected twist.

Capes are the PERFECT transitional fall-to-winter or winter-to-spring jacket. Even on a rainy day, you could throw it over an outfit for an instant style upgrade. Nadia Sarwar of Frou Frouu paired her beige cape with harem pants and sandals with socks for a modern twist on an old favorite. Sandra Hagelstam of 5 Inch And Up threw the cape over her shoulders as to not overwhelm her sheer brown blouse and moto pants ensemble while still adding a touch of warmth. Giselle Chapman of Style Of A Fashionista played with the cape’s long length against some high-waisted short-shorts for an fun, transitional look.
