Business Casual Attire That Successful Women Wear on Repeat

A great outfit holds a lot of power. It can straighten our spines, lift our heads a little higher, and help us walk into a room with newfound confidence. But while getting dressed is something we have to do every single day, picking the right outfit doesn't always come naturally. This is true whether we're heading into our very first job interview or walking into a boardroom for the hundredth time.

"You'll see I wear only gray or blue suits," Obama told once told Vanity Fair. "I'm trying to pare down decisions. I don't want to make decisions about what I'm eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make."
