Recession Chic - Must-Have Fashion Books Under $50

The holidays are over but it's not too late to give the gift of fashion! Whether it's for yourself or your (not so) fashion savvy friend, fashion books are a great way to get a boost up on styling skills.

With celebrities stylist like Nina Garcia and David Zyla dispensing their wisdom, anyone can be their own stylist! Or if your (and that friends') fashion sense is already one to be envied, get a fashion book that offers an inside glimpse to your favorite labels and designers like Chanel and Alexander McQueen.

Fashion books make for fun, informative reading and also make amazingly visual coffee table books (we love Exhibition: Lipstick Issue). Click on the slideshow to see our fave picks for fashion books under $50!
