The era of success-dressing by rote is past. Today's woman must project an image that is serious but with a sense of humor; intelligent, but not a grind; attractive, but not distracting; feminine, but not sexy. It's a tall order, but Wallach has done a good job illustrating the variety of "successful" looks available today. She defines three professional styles, Corporate, Communicator, and Creative. A quiz helps the reader to pinpoint her own career, and Traditional and Contemporary subdivisions provide fine-tuning. A sample, or "capsule" wardrobe is presented for each type, based on a two-color scheme, and including 16 pieces which combine for 52 complete outfits. Tips on shopping, traveling, and basic grooming are included. This is a useful guide for all working women. BOMC alternate. Susan B. Hagloch, Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, Ohio
