“When dress codes have changed and we have such a vast choice of clothing styles to choose from, it is not easy as a woman to know what to wear when we grow in our role as a leader.

“In business, spending time and money on our image usually comes a distant second to the effort we put into our performance. However, the research doesn’t lie - success doesn’t come from great performance alone. Whether my clients want to ‘be taken more seriously’, ‘feel more confident’ or ‘get promoted’, having been in their (sometimes less than polished) shoes, I inevitably gift them this book. I love how Lizzie acknowledges the judgement and uncomfortable truths, and then, with her expert insights, gives us her practical, easily digestible, step by step approach. At a time when so much can feel out of your control, this book gives you a blueprint to craft your business image with purpose, confidence and individual style.”
“What you wear sends a powerful signal not only to the world but also to yourself about how you perceive your worth and has a big impact on self-belief. I encourage my clients and audiences to dress to feel fabulous, and to show their body it is respected, appreciated and loved through how they dress. This practical, insightful and easy to implement guide makes dressing to feel confident and fabulous a breeze.”
“Excellent not only for its clear, goal-orientated, step-by-step image upgrade process but for the fact that it delves behind image, motivating women to rediscover their positive qualities and showing them how they can successfully use image to project those qualities in the workplace for good.”
“There are many on the market, and I have read a good few of them. I found this book informative, easy to read and really inspiring when it came to understanding what I need to do to project my image better.”
"I do honestly think this book is good for any woman - regardless of job or position or personal situation. It just full of wonderful advice on how to develop a personal image that is positive, fresh and sends out a remarkable 1st impression to the outside world!"
"It makes you think about clothes in such a new light.. Lizzie gently encourages you to understand that investing in your appearance unlocks your personal creativity and confidence, which arguably impacts so many areas of our lives and not just work. The exercises .. are incredibly valuable and have already given me so much food for thought."
"What an important book for any woman who has worked so hard to get where she is. Lizzie describes our life perfectly! Time poor and often lacking in fashion confidence she gives practical advice based on years of experience.
"Such a brilliant book - a step by step guide to understanding why how you look is important, and what to do to project your best self. Easy to read and easy to implement. I've already started reorganising my wardrobe and have noticed the difference instantly!"
