Top Ten Clothes inspired on Book Covers I Would Wear

  1. Sense & Sensibility; Jane Austen. Really most of these Penguin Clothbound would make a great dress.

2. The Secret Garden; Frances Burnett. An embroidered floral shawl would be perfect.

3. Speak; Louisa Hall. This would make a neat, bright scarf to make an outfit sparkle.

4. Ciao, Suerte; Anne McGreery. These colors would make for a lovely dress, or maybe split up for a cool pants/shirt combo.

5. The Bees; Laline Paull. This would make a lovely black and blue floral skirt, paired with a golden shirt.

6. After the Parade; Lori Ostlund. This makes me think of a sequined dress.

7. Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights; Salman Rushdie. This image would make an interesting t-shirt.

8. The Hundred Year Flood; Matthew Salosses. I could see this as a scalloped dress in shades of blue, with a bird pin.

9. Strange the Dreamer; Laini Taylor. I just want this moth on something.

10. All That Followed: Gabriel Urza. This lovely lilac would make a pretty dress with a graphic landscape print along the bottom hem.
