So many women complain they have a closet full of clothes … but nothing to wear. This book proves that any woman can look and feel lovely every day – regardless of her age, her bank balance or her pant size. In “LOOKING GOOD Every Day”, wardrobe consultant Nancy Nix-Rice sets out a simple yet sophisticated standard for determining which clothes and accessories will showcase your own unique beauty.
The book shows how to connect your clothes, accessories and even make-up to your coloring, body type and scale, facial characteristics, lifestyle and personal style. These “points of connection” shift the emphasis from hiding perceived appearance challenges to spotlighting your greatest assets.
Nancy Nix-Rice guides us to look good through photos, illustrations and great copy. It’s almost as if she’s standing next to us saying, “Try this.” No matter your age, style or pocketbook, you’ll find this your go-to style reference.

“My usual reaction to a new “style” book is to sit on my hands. After reading “LOOKING GOOD … Every Day” I was ready to stand on my chair and yodel! Finally a timeless reference for women of all ages and sizes. This book will be the text for my future classes. Thanks, Nancy, for a job very well done.”
Kathryn Brown, Style Lecturer, Sewing Instructor
“This book is like an encyclopedia – packed full of information from A to Z to simplify the process of getting dressed. I love the modern approach that features apps and ways to use technology, if you choose, to make the process easier. Nancy provides exercises so you can easily analyze yourself and make all the connections you’ll need to find your style solutions. All the photos and illustrations clarify the points Nancy is making – like the amazing thing that can happen when you reposition a belt, tuck in a shirt or add a little shoulder pad. It’s well organized too, so whether you read it from start to finish (which I recommend because Nancy’s sense of humor makes it an enjoyable read) or head right for the topics that trouble you the most, you can easily find what you’re looking for.
If you’ve always wished for a savvy friend to help you work through the process of learning to look the way you always knew you could – this book feels like that friend.

“Monday I got home from a week of house-hunting to find “Looking Good…Every Day” waiting for me. And although bleary-eyed from my travels, I could hardly stop turning the pages, seeing answers at last to age-old questions and wardrobe dilemmas in almost every chapter.
Nancy’s orientation to wardrobe design is so intuitive it would be easy to overlook how ingenious it is. With a concept she calls “points of connection” she leads readers to identify their own coloring, figure type, proportions, face shape and more as the basis of their most flattering looks. I find that a lot of fashion advice is imposed from the outside onto us poor lumps of imperfection. Nancy seeks to bring out what’s wonderful and interesting within each of us and then to find those styles that best support us. It’s a very positive approach–and also grounded in practicality.
Each chapter explains principles, illustrating with a wealth of examples using real women. You may have noticed: this is far from the norm in style advice books. Looking Good…Every Day is a toolkit for wardrobe decision-making and design like I’ve never had before. With this book in hand I can analyze my piles of delayed wardrobe decisions with a fresh eye–and possibly make most of that clutter disappear–for good.

“As a presentation skills trainer and coach, I work with women to help them project confidence and credibility. Now I can’t wait to recommend “LOOKING GOOD … Every Day” to them. This is such a powerful resource. It helps a woman assess what showcases her unique attributes. When she dresses to accentuate her bests self, the focus will be on her face and her communications, not on “OMG, what is she wearing?” This book underscores that your presence is powerful when everything is connected – clothing, color, style, accessories. And I love how it shows you exactly how to connect everything, step by colorfully illustrated step.”
Barbara Busey, President, Presentation Dynamics
“As an image consulting instructor who used Nancy’s original book since 2000, I’m thrilled with this updated and expanded volume. The book is loaded with new information and the photos throughout the book reflect the diversity of real women. It is an easy and enjoyable book to read and the step by step guidelines about body style are an added bonus. I’m very pleased with this comprehensive book and look forward to sharing it with my classes.”
Kelly Armstrong, Image Consulting Instructor, City College of San Francisco
“A useful and comprehensive guide for putting together – or refining – every aspect of your wardrobe from styles to closets to shopping., Enough depth for image “geeks” but accessible for all. The “Do’s and Don’ts” – with illustrations – are particularly helpful. Food for study … as well as for thought.”
Beryl Wing, The Image Authority”
“LOOKING GOOD Every Day” takes LOOKING GOOD to a new level. Nancy’s new approach through “points of connection” is unique and easy to understand, and hundreds of photos provide ample proof that this approach works. Filled with timeless principles of color, line, design and proportion, this volume helps women of all ages, shapes and lifestyles make flattering choices while maximizing their wardrobe budget. This is a book every woman should own!
