Summary

Summary

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.
