I ACTUALLY WORE THIS: Clothes We Can’t Believe We Bought By Tom Coleman

A lot of fashion books will tell you exactly what to wear for brunch in Bermuda or offer a lengthy treatise on the history of the espadrille. They are also very good at presenting rules you should never break – no open-toed shoes while eating an open-faced sandwich, and make it very clear that fashion is serious business. This book is not that kind of book. It celebrates those times when taste takes a holiday, the times when you bought and wore cringe-inducing garments, those items that will forever cause you to mutter, ‘What was I thinking?’. It is a celebration of the fashion missteps of otherwise stylish individuals.
