Publisher Comments:

hether you're a high-powered executive or an entry-level assistant, a sales representative or an environmental consultant, your clothes present a message to all you encounter. If you're looking to find a job, keep a job, or get a better job, you need Chic Simple Dress Smart? Women.

In this empowering, comprehensive guide, two accomplished style experts make putting together business looks easy and effective. With twenty-five bestselling guides for living (over one million copies sold), a monthly column (Chic Simple Solutions) for InStyle magazine, and now, the new Chic Simple magazine, Kim Johnson Gross and Jeff Stone show you how to dress effectively for:

  • Interviews: Did you know you have only seven seconds to make that vital first impression? Dress Smart helps you to come across as strong as possible and ensure your clothes measure up to and reflect your ability.
  • Career: Do your work clothes say "can do, trust me, consider it done" or do your superiors just look the other way? With Dress Smart, you'll create a closetful of clothes that will further your career and are suitable for any work challenge.
  • Management: Sure, you've gotten the promotions, but do you look like you're in charge? Dress Smart takes the guesswork out of authoritative dressing and puts you on the path to the corner office.
In these pages, you'll learn the subtleties of the three major dress codes (Corporate, Business Appropriate, and Business Casual) and find answers to the most frequently asked questions about style at work. You'll discover the secrets of shopping cleverly and economically, and how to work your wardrobe by mixing and remixing (with a little creativity two pieces of a suit can morph into twelve outfits or more). Feature sections on personalizing accessories, organizing your closet, what and how to pack for a business trip, dressing for off-site events, maternity attire, and much more — including regional style guides for all major U.S. and world cities — guarantee you'll look pulled together and professional every day.

Remember, your look is your logo. A small investment in your wardrobe can lead to a big payoff in your career. So take control of the image you project in the workplace...and never underestimate the power of a great pair of shoes!

Synopsis:

In these times of economic uncertainty, dressing to impress has never been so important. Chic Simple DRESS SMART-WOMEN guides the professional female to dress to find a job, to keep a job, and to get a better job. Drawing on interviews from top professionals and their own vast experience via their book line, AOL column, and InStyle monthly advice section, veteran style mavens Jeff Stone and Kim Johnson Gross put a sexy spin on the age-old question of how to dress for success. DRESS SMART provides the straight talk answer to the most frequently asked questions about style at work, including: valuable tips on: dressing for off-site events, dealing with business casual versus business appropriate, knowing where to spend-and where to save-money on your wardrobe. The book will capitalize on the fan base established with the new Chic Simple magazine, but while the magazine focuses on shopping solutions for all aspects of women's lives, DRESS SMART will provide complete lessons on how to maximize professional impact through your wardrobe, and will be a blueprint to the dynamics of dressing in today's constantly changing business environment.
