Conveying Executive Presence With Looks and Dress
It’s a business “buzz phrase” that’s been around for a few years now: executive presence. What is it? It’s that certain something, that je ne sais quoi that makes someone appear to be a strong, capable executive. It’s in their voice, their posture, their ability to convey their points clearly, and of course, it rests a lot in their appearance. Women with a strong executive presence have more than a few things together when it comes to their looks.
Marie Claire talked about Executive Presence recently in their article, “Best Clothes for Work–How to Get Executive Presence.” They outline that women with great executive presence are always thinking about:

- Well-fitting clothes
- Avoiding “too sexy” choices
