Unlock Your Style is the fabulous new book from stylist and blogger, Nikki Parkinson of Styling You.

Nikki is also a dear friend of mine and I posted about attending the Unlock Your Style book launch here. I have read my copy of Unlock Your Style from cover to cover and have  immediately made some changes to my wardrobe and beauty cabinet.

Nikki has the ability to break style down into an easy, everyday language that anyone can follow. Her book is a fun and friendly guide for looking good and feeling good, no matter what your size.

  1. Narelle Rock says

    I love Ruby Rose, her style is effortless, funky and unique, definitely the kind of style I would love to rock!

  2. Ashley says

    My style icon is a cross between Mindy Kaling and Zooey Deschanel. Mindy exudes such a confidence in her body. And Zooey’s style is so classic and girly without being too sexy or revealing.

  3. Olivia says

    My style icon is Emma Watson. Though many people have style, Emma has the confidence that exudes far beyond the shoes she wears.

  4. says

    Such a tough question as there have been so many fabulous women over the years who have inspired my look. Currently channelling Olivia Palermo’s vibes, I’d love for some of her elegance to rub off on me.

  5. says

    Definitely Kate Bosworth – Bosie = always classic, simple chic but with a slight rock & roll twist. Perfect and how I’d love someone to describe my style! So excited for Nikki & her book launch!

  6. Noelene says

    Nikki is ,she was the first website I found that dealt with real women shape and things that fit her suit me too .She also shows Aussie labels and where to get things online which helps us buying online newbies .

  7. Rachel says

    Lucy Liu in Elementary– I love that quintessential New York style, with all its practicality and a little pinch of attitude. I really love the way the stylists manage to make her outfits classy, a little bit sexy and feminine, and there’s no tolerance for running around the city and chasing bad guys in stilettos and pencil skirts!

  8. Nadia says

    I adore Nicole Richie. She always is changing up her style and I love it. I do love her boho look the best though 😉

  9. Beth Atwell says

    Been in bed recovering from a second breast reduction and breast lift and a tummy tuck. In tons of pain. Hair Romance has kept me distracted and Nikki’s book looks perfect for someone anticipating a brand new body, it can’t be purchased here in US, though. I’ve tried lots of new hair styles but am nervous about my new body. Thank you. Think of me. Appreciate your inspiration. Beth

  10. Senny says

    My style icon is of course Sarah Jessica Parker! I have loved her for as long as I can remember. It is because of sex in the city that I know sometimes you have to sacrifice comfort for fashion! :-)

  11. says

    With four daughter 12-20, Hair Romance is a wonderful resource. We’ve used your e-book styles for everyday and even prom! Our tresses look great, but we would love to win this book to learn how to look fab from head to toe.

  12. Julie says

    Emily Deschanel in Bones – great statement jewelry, professional style, but never looked like a frumpy sack of laundry, even in coveralls.

  13. Susan says

    It’s hard to find one these days. I adore Victoria Beckham’s style. Very classic with an edge. I tend more towards classics, although I am loving the boho look.

    My problem is that I am 55 on the outside, but not on the inside! I am beginning a weight loss journey so have to work with changing sizes and the fact that I don’t want to dress like my mother did at my age. We are so very different, I still like more casual/boho, with classics for more dressy occasions.

    My mom always was very stylish and we inherited that from her, when I was working outside the home, I was always rockin’ the latest styles and often ahead of the trends. However, being a SAHM and working from home…I’m not sure what to wear anymore so I fall back on jeans and tshirts, or a couple of skirts…HELP!

    However, I have naturally curly hair like yours and a great stylist, so at least my hair always looks great!

  14. Cassandra says

    My style icon has changed over the years as I’ve aged. At the moment I seem to be loving the dresses worn by our own Princess Mary. Always elegant and stylish.

  15. says

    I know there is controversy about whether or not she is a ‘style icon’ but I really love the Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) for her style. She always looks chic but appropriate and she wears wedges so well! Definitely aspire to her polished look.
    This book looks awesome, I’ve only just discovered Nikki’s blog through Instagram and I’m really enjoying it!

  16. Erica says

    Reese Witherspoon. I have loved her ever since legally blonde…pink being my favorite color. She is always girly.bust classy, and is stunning when she is pulling an elegant look! Always looking like it is effortless though, and natural!

  17. Heather says

    I admire a lot about French women’s sense of style. Inès de la Fressange is very classic. My favorite fashion blog is Wardrobe Oxygen which features a real woman with everyday style that is classic but edgy too.

  18. Kristy says

    My style icon is definitely Lauren Conrad. I love her chic style, sophistication, overall look and classiness.

  19. says

    I am inspired by a few fashion loving girlfriends who have a natural flare for style and pairing together pieces and look effortless. I am also inspired by fashion blogger and models.

  20. says

    I would like to think that my style icon is Audrey Hepburn. She is so timelessly classic and Parisian chic. But let’s be honest, in reality I tend to draw inspiration from 90’s and 00’s indie rock / riot grrrl icons like Shirley Manson, old school Gwen Stefani and old school Courtney Love.

  21. Elizabeth says

    I always admire Alexa Chung’s style as it’s comfortable, elegant and a little off-beat. If only I had her bone structure!

  22. Elif says

    I really like looking through Lauren Conrad’s fashion posts on her website and Instagram, her style is very girly, chic and sophisticated, which I love!

  23. says

    I would have to choose Kate Hudson. She, like myself, has curly hair. She, unlike myself Lol, always has an amazingly beautiful hairstyle without frizz or fly aways, which is close to impossible when you have curly hair! Having curly hair can make doing your hair very complicated , yet she has it look beautiful and effortless no matter how she wears it. I wish so much that I had or at least knew how to accomplish such gorgeous hair!
