I Collect Fashion Coffee Table Books—These 44 Are the Best of the Best


(Image credit: @fashionwithjazz)

Anyone who self-identifies as a "fashion person" has a few things they collect. For some, collecting great handbags is a hobby; for others, thrifting is a full-time side hustle. The point is there's always something that we fashion people are vying to get our hands on, which can make shopping for us a rather tricky endeavor. And unless you've got a detailed wish list from them, chances are you have no idea what to get for the most stylish person in your life.

I'm here to help, and my simple solution is gifting them with a fashion coffee table book. Hear me out on this. It's the perfect catchall gift idea. Whether you're shopping for a last-minute holiday, birthday, or housewarming gift, a coffee table book works for every occasion (and budget). But if you're unsure what books are worth adding to their collection, don't fret. I've scoured Amazon, Saks, and Assouline to identify the 40 best fashion coffee table books based on popularity, relevance, and my collection. Last-minute gift ideas are ahead.
