by John T. Molloy
253 pages paper - December 1996, WARNER BOOKS
By the author of Dress for Success When the New York
Times bestselling The Women's Dress for Success Book appeared
in 1978, it was the first and only book for women by an image
consultant that backed up recommendations with sound research.
John T. Molloy proved that what women wore affected what they
earned. He stated then: "Most American women dress for failure."
He says now, "They still do, and most don't know it."
The right clothing can give you the competitive edge.
Molloy's new research shows which clothes have power in today's
workplace, a business world where "casual" clothes are
becoming the new uniform, and women in management positions have
no clear idea of what to wear.
Plus how to dress for an interview; which accessories
are necessities; tips on makeup, jewelry, and shoes; and special
recommendations for lawyers, doctors, counselors, sales personnel,
reporters and accountants...and much more.
