Book Description

There is one problem that career women face that often goes unaddressed. It is what it means to be wearing the right clothes. A woman’s wardrobe is an essential component of her presentation. It is as important as her handshake, her eye contact and her attitude.

The faux pas many women make is that they believe their wardrobe is a reflection of who they are. They are attempting to project their distinctiveness and their individuality. Others prefer to wear what is comfortable thinking that this is appropriate since they’ve noticed others in the office also dress this way. And then there are those who want to be known for their style and creativity. They want to stand out from the crowd.

All these women, instead of sending the right message they are signaling to those above that they are not a team player, that they are not ready for promotion.

The mistake is that they don’t view the clothes they wear to work as their corporate uniform.

Don’t lose the point that the real purpose of “the uniform” isn’t for erasing your identity; its purpose reflects the symbolism that “you’re part of the team.” It creates a visual representation of a common goal and a shared purpose.

Take your cues from the influential and successful. The bottom line is to be smart enough to keep your "fashion style" for your non-business life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but good March 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very short book (about 10 pages), but it makes several good points. One is that a career woman's clothes should not be "a reflection of who she is" but rather the "corporate uniform showing she is a team player". That is an interesting point, and I had not considered clothes in that way before. I am glad I read this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful June 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Appreciated the insight into business wear and the tips. I liked the tip especially about asking yourself about your clothes and how it helps you be a team player. I must admit that we as women prefer our individuality and to stand out but this book helps . A good read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Basics of color psychology April 26, 2013

This book stated pretty obvious facts that I already knew based on color psychology. I think it could have been expanded on.

5.0 out of 5 stars must read December 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I find this book very helpful. Yes, all of us might have known what is written on this book but some are not. With the generation today, everyone dress as they like without thinking of some people may think about them. I must agree to the author that how you dress shows what personality do you have. Sometimes wearing an inappropriate dress in some situation especially applying for work can send some wrong signal unintentionally.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short but bad May 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is short, and not good. It is not so much a guide to telling you what you should wear, but who's fashion sense you should follow and why. I was hoping for some fashion tips, such as what sort of office skirt to wear with what, or how to mix and match clothing. Instead the entire thing can be summed up by two points:

The type of clothing you wear can convey messages about who people want to think you are.

Wear what the top female managers in your place of employment wear.

Even in this short book, I felt there was a lot of padding material. The book could have been improved by some real tips on what to wear.
