The changing of the season and the influx of new spring titles has inspired us at Electric Literature to up our fashion game and come to the office dressed to match a book cover. Glossy fashion magazine, we are not, but geeky feminist literary publication, yup, that’s us.

To celebrate the season of expensive cold brews, budding tulips, and al-fresco dining, we asked our readers to play literary dress up using the hashtag #DressLikeABook. Behold the 17 best literary inspired outfits and be sure to continue sharing your photos with us on Instagram.
