18 Fashion Coffee Table Books To Own

The coffee table book…

The book you own for display purposes.

The book that acts as a “waiting room” style book you can flip through if bored. It sits on your table, looking pretty and beautiful – awe-ing guests who might by chance take a look and make an assumption you are interested or knowledgeable about the topic…

Jokes aside, the coffee table book serves more of an aesthetic purpose than an informative one. You can tell a lot about a person by the books they own.

Now, if someone came over to my flat, they’d safely assume I am an academic, with over 500 books on history, medicine, and marketing.

But I do have the occasional aesthetically pleasing coffee table book (yes, I’ve read it too), and they are fashion related because I think it looks beautiful and can be a glimpse into my life as a blogger.

 

Best Fashion Coffee Table Books To Own

Below are 18 coffee table books in fashion, style, and photographer that are worth owning. If you’d like to update your decor (and learn about the history of fashion). these are the perfect choices. I’ve not included any of the more popular and modern books because you’ll find them everywhere.

I’ve seen so many style bloggers posting about the same “decorative books” and there’s always a lack of substance and information. I’m more than sure these coffee table books are never read but I encourage you to purchase 1 – 2 books to keep on display that you actually would enjoy looking at and reading.

Pick the books that are most relevant to your own style.

My personal choices are the Fashion and Versailles book (which I own) and the Fashioning Fashion book because they are historically relevant to me.

Click the book you want to check details about! And I hope you find one that is not only beautiful but interesting to you.

  • Question: Perfume, Eau du parfume, Eau du toilette...do you know the difference between these?
-
If you don't, it's pretty fascinating and today on thepetitebijou.com, I'm sharing these differences and how you can choose the best fragrance for you. Click the link in my bio to read ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

This blog post was inspired by an event I attended with @diptyque the other week. There are so many different terminologies used in Perfumery and the history of Perfume is so interesting! I've read several books on the topic which I will share in my stories in case you are interested in learning more. What does the Perfume you wear say about you?

  • Do you have a pair of comfortable snow boots ready for winter?
-
No matter how mild, winters are always a rather challenging time for our skin, with exposure to harsher temperatures and winds, as well as dry air. And most women forget to protect their feet as they venture out to their day to day errands.
-
Today on the blog, I'm sharing the snow boots I've tried on in the past month that are not only very warm and protective, but don't distract from any outfit. I think it's possible to be both warm and stylish, is it not? Click the link in my bio to read the post.

I am in love with these @sperry snow boots, as they are not only very warm, but look more elegant than my traditional winter hiking boots.

And I leave you with a winter quote:
โ€œWhen all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.โ€ โ€”Madeleine M. Kunin

  • Hello sweater weather, or should I say, sweater dress weather?
-
Question: Would you ever sacrifice style for comfort? Or the other way around? I wouldn't and my favorite way to combine elegance and comfort is in a sweater dress! They're easy to accessorize and perfect with fleece lined leggings - so no one knows you're secretly as cozy as you are with a jumper and joggers ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • So very plaid indeed! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚
-
This little plaid number has been my seasonal purse of choice because itโ€™s perfect for adventuring with. Who else has seasonal purses they go through? ๐Ÿ˜†
-
I have my summer purse, my fall purse, my winter purse...and they get re-used until they break to bits. One way to be more conscious about your shopping habits is to create seasonal capsules that never go out of style. I consider this trench and this purse part of my autumnal capsule.

  • Does anyone actually read their coffee table books?
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Iโ€™d hope so - which is why today on ThePetiteBijou.com, I am sharing 18 of the best and most interesting fashion coffee table books. Not only to look nice sitting on your all white marble table but to actually read! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘—
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Among these books is this one Iโ€™ve been reading called Fashion and Versailles which documents all the historical fashion events and traditions that have taken place in this French chateau. The history is so fascinating!
