"Classic Style is so much more than a book about personal style choices and classic wardrobe recommendations. It inspires readers to remove the clutter and embrace the joy of simplicity."
--The Associated Press

"[Classic Style] is a very relatable book, filled with gorgeous illustrations and plenty of pithy narrative. There are hilarious passages, nostalgic remembrances, and tips readers can use to shape their personal style. . . . Above all, the book is meant to stress [Kate's] belief in the importance of being yourself and of finding what you love."
"Classic Style should be required reading for fashion designers, stylists and those who care to learn more about their own sense of style. Not since The Preppy Handbook has a book served as a how to guide for the classic elements of style."--Huffpost

"Kate's paintings are proud badges we wear, or drive, or stir a drink with. Simple items that define us, tell our stories, and communicate our values."
--Andy Spade
"Kate Schelter has evolved into an expert on lifestyle and fashion. I am so happy for her latest book of wonderful, whimsical watercolors."
--Zac Posen

"This book belongs in every hotel nightstand--it's my new bible."
--Jonathan Adler
