You are the boss so you need to look the part. Your clothes should express your position. The days of demure are done. A powerful image is important to you.  

DRESS LIKE YOU ARE THE BOSS:
You should dress better than your subordinates. You make more money and your clothes should reflect that. Wear natural fibers like cashmere, silk, and linen and invest in good leather shoes and career bags. You need to separate yourself from your staff, you are not one of the gang anymore. Your image should be polished and professional.

WEAR CLOTHING THAT IS AGE APPROPRIATE:
As a female executive you may be older than your staff. Wear what is appropriate for your age group and avoid adopting younger trends.  

ESTABLISH YOUR PERSONAL BRAND:
A female executive does not have to dress like she is “one of the boys” Dress for your industry. Be conservative and creative in establishing your personal brand. Acquire your look and stay with it. It is important to keep your hair style and color consistent, nails neutral.

USE ACCENTS:
An accent can become part of your personal brand. Maybe silk scarves are your trademark, or a red briefcase or career bag. Maybe it is your glasses. Think of a signature accessory that you can use or wear daily.  

CHOOSE BUSINESS COLORS:
Choose colors that flatter you. If you can, take advantage of strong business colors like dark reds, blues and burgundy rather than the black and grey worn by men. Stay away from soft colors like pinks, lavenders, and light blues.  

CHOOSE TAILORED CLOTHING:
Tailored clothing is more powerful than either trendy or feminine styles. Oversized clothing, ruffles, short hemlines and low necklines do not project an image of power  

ALWAYS LOOK WELL GROOMED:
Different work environments have different standards for dress and image. However, as the boss, your personal appearance should always be maintained at the highest level. At least from your appearance, you cannot look like you are having a bad day. Your hair should be neat, make-up fresh, and you should make sure your shoes are polished and your clothes pressed. Be prepared by keeping your work attire for work.
