Corporate

Banish boring and show-off your style

Most corporate offices have dress codes but that doesn't mean you have to leave fashion and taste at the door. Typical “work clothes” can lack an edge or sophistication. That's why for corporate client meetings I love going classic and monochromatic. A well-cut sheath dresses, interesting accessories, and high pumps is my go-to look.

Entertainment

Show up and show off

Meetings with creative industries such as the entertainment world affords you the opportunity to show off some more edgy yet casual looks. I like to mix a statement boot with trendy jeans and must-have basics. A leather moto jacket instantly adds a chic touch to basics like a white tank and jeans.

Studio/Agency

Black is the new black (always)

The stereotype of designers wearing all black is confirmed here. It's what I prefer to wear on a day-to-day so it's only fitting I would wear it to meet with other designers. I love wearing sophisticated, minimal pieces with a touch of architectural detail. To add a secret boost of confidence wear something pretty and lacey under the all-black armor.

Entrepreneurs

Cofee Shop Casual

Most entrepreneurs work from home and therefore meetings are done at coffee shops. Clients with their own businesses are visionaries and have left the 9–5 race to set their own rules. Most of the time this means ditching the corporate dress code. I like to keep the vibe relaxed and casual. A bold lip color pulls everything together and commands attention.
