As we get more serious about the whole adulting thing, not only does our style evolve, but so too does how we choose to express this in our homes. While a designer bag or vintage pair of black pumps may be your go-to for that finishing sartorial touch outdoors, at home, they’re usually sitting pretty in dustbags (you do store them in dustbags, don’t you?). A carefully curated selection of coffee table fashion books, however, can bring the same level of chic to your living room.
Just like a coveted designer purchase, some of these come at a hefty price tag – for books, especially. And just like any designer purchase, the cost-per-wear ratio is almost always, justifiable. From Oscar de la Renta to iconic photographers such as Richard Avedon, these are the hardcover books to buy now and keep forever.
