Dress for success, whatever your occupation


Every working girl understands that success comes to those who work for it. Dressing for work is an integral part in your overall daily performance in the office. It denotes that you value your job, and you like to look your best at all times.

While dressing well certainly takes time and effort, it should also be fun and exciting. In this day and age, where presentation is everything, always make sure to look and feel your best at all times.

The intern

The bosses always take notice of a polished employee dressed for success. Don’t let age get in the way. Take charge and get noticed. Studies have proven that opportunities open up to interns who dress the part. (Think conservative, but always dressy and up to date).

The financial analyst

Power dressing is key for the strong-willed and determined financial analyst. Looking sophisticated will take you through your day—all the way from presentations in the morning to dress-up dinners at night. This ruffle-neck top paired with knee-length skirt gives an elegant but stylish feel to your overall outfit.

The lawyer

Dressing up can be an empowering cure for the high-powered lawyer. There is much attention given towards the lawyer and what she has to say. Ease up on the pressure and take comfort in knowing that you look your best.

The interior designer/architect

A day in the life of a designer involves moving from site meetings to important presentations. Dressing up to meet the demands of a hectic schedule can be grueling. Comfort is key for interior designers and architects. Finding a sense of balance between comfort and style is significant to the stylish architect/interior designer.


The advertising director

While most advertising groups are less stringent with their dress code, there’s nothing like feeling good about your outfit, or your makeup, to stir up your creative juices. A chic and fashionable ensemble will liven up presentations to clients, making the atmosphere more conducive to positive vibrations.

The teacher

While teaching requires a lot of talking (and listening), it is vital to find techniques to hold the attention of your students. Keep your daily outfits comfortable and visually enticing with feminine and special pieces.

The PR maven

The world of public relations requires socializing, mingling and a lot of entertaining. This means that you need to work and look the part. Attending endless events will certainly require you to look stylish at all times, especially when there are cameras all around.

The mom

A typical day for a busy mom revolves around meetings and appointments. Working with classic pieces that complement your skin tone and figure keeps you looking effortless and elegant for the busy day ahead.
