Book clubs used to be all about the book.
For some groups, it still is. But for others, it's evolved into an anticipated social event that includes a little wine, a lot of conversation and a chance to exchange the latest juicy stories -- of the nonfiction variety, of course.
And that brings us to what to wear. Because if this represents a big night out, you'll want to look the part -- without overdoing it.
Here's a smart little outfit that's living-room appropriate -- cozy sweater, comfy yet stylish jeans, and kicked-up shoes that bring it all together.
Your next task is to get beyond Chapter 3.
