Dressing for Your Career- No Hard and Fast Rules

The days of a closet full of formulaic matching 2-piece suits are long gone. But, what to wear instead? In my business, we dress a lot of powerful women. They understand that while they know how to run a company or a department, they don’t have the knowledge (and/or time) to dress themselves! What they do understand is that they owe it to their clients and to those they mentor to look their very best each and every day. Career dressing varies by industry. Bankers, financial advisers, and healthcare employees are in a conservative environment. Women in advertising, interior design, and real estate have more latitude in the way they dress. There is no doubt that things have become more casual in all work environments. I’d say “dress like your boss,” but I’ve seen some really powerful women dressed in power suits from the ‘80s! I subscribe to the axiom, “When in doubt, overdress.” (There’s nothing wrong and a whole lot right with being the best dressed woman in the room.)
