Check out options from fashionista separates to partner-in-waiting suiting.
For those of you who work in a fashion forward, business casual environment and your client knows the dress code. Ummm, lawyers and bankers: this probably isn’t you.
Hair accessories will instantly jazz up any ho-hum hairdo without looking unprofessional. This glitzy 3.1 Phillip Lim Embellished Moire Headband

Really hold their attention by wearing this Pade Vavra Draped Chair Necklace
($155) and these Chan Luu Pyrite Hoop Earrings
Depending on how bright you go on top, make sure you keep it subdued on bottom. Short skirts are still a no-no even though the lights are dim and you’re sipping a Cosmo. Stick to solid colors with a bit of edge, like this Kaylee Tankus Metallic Draped Skirt
Shoes aren't only made for walking
; make a statement
every time you stomp. If you want to play it safe, we suggest these Zelotes Flats
($69.95) by Nine West. Sport these Elena Strappy Leather Sandals
($335) by DKNY if you're brave. Now get walkin', er, talking!
If your daily repertoire includes business suits, close-toed shoes and conservative blouses and your clients dress similarly, this probably isn’t the look for you. Alas, feast your eyes on these traffic-stopping, not-your-usual suits. Spice up a simple two-piecer with this Albert Nipon Ruffled Two-Piece Pant Suit
($320). Going for the big bucks? Knock their socks off in this D&G Two-Piece Trouser Suit
