I’ve always been into books since I was little; however, things have changed slightly as I’ve gotten older and I’m no longer drawn to the fantasy of classic novels, but have since fallen in love with coffee table books. While coffee table books are typically meant for the visual appeal on the outside, I find them to be rather interesting on the inside as well. I want to share with you a list of my favorite coffee table books (even though I don’t actually put them on a coffee table).
Garance Doré is someone who I’ve adored for the longest time. I’ve had this book for awhile now and I love going back and reading all her advice on fashion, beauty, and etiquette. In this book she interviews some of my idols including DVF, Jenna Lyons, and Drew Barrymore. This is an essential, that I believe every girl could use in their life.
Megan Hess is one of my favorite fashion illustrators of all time! She’s done work for so many incredible brands including Dior and Tiffany & Co. My favorite illustrations by Megan Hess are featured in this book called Coco Chanel, a story about Coco Chanel and her brand. I just adored reading this book and looking at all of her illustrations. I felt like a kid reading a picture book again. So fun!
This is one of my favorite books of all time. This book screams Kate Spade, which is a brand that always appealed to me for it’s classic and fun style. While there isn’t much to read in this book, I loved reading the list of Kate Spade favorite things (including the color red and BOWS).
This collection of some of the best photos ever taken of one of my style icons is something everyone should have on their shelves (or coffee tables). Audrey Hepburn’s family chose the photos featured in the book. No words. Literally (there are few words in this book). And Figuratively (this book is amazing).
Just an absolute essential when talking about coffee table books.
Creative Director at Lucky Magazine, Andrea Linett wrote this fabulous book about achieving effortless style. Additionally, this book is amazing, especially for someone who’s working on creating a cohesive wardrobe.
