Product Placement: Your Lucky Outfit

Every wardrobe has that seemingly magical piece that can’t bring yourself to get rid of. The top that ensures the second date. The suit that makes you strut. The lucky pendant that just makes you feel…safer and more confident. It’s why I haven’t been able to get rid of this jacket that I’ve had for the past eight years, despite the fact that the inner lining is ripped to shreds. A long, denim jacket that fits snugly around the waist, purchased in an H&M in Graz, Austria, it’s been getting compliments for as long as I’ve had it. Putting it on makes me feel like an instant superhero.

Your business attire should make you feel the same way. At the very least, you should have one winning outfit that you wear to consultations and business meetings (you know…when you’re not sitting in front of your computer in pjs and fuzzy socks…). This outfit should make you feel invincible, unstoppable, the right one to do the job.

After the jump, some pieces I wouldn’t mind having in my closet. Bonus: I struggle to put together a men’s outfit as well. (Unfortunately, I’m no Stacey or Clinton.)
