English-born fashionista Roe, of Access Hollywood fame, delivers an entertaining illustrated guidebook for young women seeking to stretch their fashion budgets. Tackling each aspect of building a "capsule wardrobe" out of essential, timeless items, Roe divides her subject into four main areas: personal style, fashion basics, beauty, and lifestyle. Each chapter includes easy-to-follow advice; the section on the how to care for your garments, for example, addresses treating stains, dealing with moths, and how to clean delicate materials such as leather or suede. Other sections include tips on dressing for a first date, preparing for wedding season, and choosing a signature scent. While much of the information may be familiar to readers of women's lifestyle magazines, this complete style guide from a social media aficionado is a handy resource. The book is liberally sprinkled with photos of the photogenic Roe practicing what she preaches. (Apr.)
