When it comes to personal branding, the outer you reflects the inner you. Putting care and thought into your style will help you stand out in all the right ways.
1. “I love to see a woman go to work in a dress that can take her from day to evening so that she looks appropriate in the office, but can head straight out for a night on the town.”

2. “Keep an emergency beauty bag- a second makeup bag at work with a brush, tooth brush, lipstick, mints, a mirror- whatever your essentials are to keep you feeling good.”
– Shoshanna Gruss, designer

– Frederic Fekkai, stylist
6. “Don’t ever walk into a meeting without lipgloss or lipstick. It gives a polished, confident aura.”
– Alison Brod, beauty PR guru
