About this title


The once useful formula of pinstripe suits, dress shirts, power ties, and leather wingtips no longer works. Chic Simple Work Clothes shows men and women how to dress in today's new world of work to commmand respect and ensure a professional bearing, and explains why the radically different new work style has developed. Full-color photos & illustations.

From Booklist:

America's corporate reengineering movement has affected the way we dress for work. According to Omelianuk, with the advent of casual business environments also comes a major shift in attire. Out with power suits and big shoulders; in with relevant and comfortable clothes to create and think in. The author first covers all the basics for both men and women, including such concerns as fabric, color, pattern, texture, and survival gear (the absolute minimum "must have" clothing for business wear). Basic items are combined visually in four different ways to show four different images. Quotes from corporate and literary gurus such as Faith Popcorn, Alvin Toffler, and Sloan Wilson, historical tidbits, and helpful resources will guide novice business types into making appropriate decisions. Barbara Jacobs
