I recently had one and went with: Tailored slim nice quality black pant Everlane button up collared silk blouse My fav necklace and black booties. My “serious” eye glasses. ( I sometimes wear contacts or more funky frames) I’m not a fashionista so for me I go for elegant, neutral , and totally client-meeting appropriate. But also boring, I’ll admit. But it’s not the outfit you want them to remember.

Love classic staples (black pants, white shirt, neutral heels) with a funky blazer

Club Monaco type wear/style is a great point of reference

Dress pants, sweater or a nice blouse. Sometimes with a blazer. You can always go full suit but don’t need to.

An elegant, nice dress with an edge. No pants or suits. We are not in the financial business. We speak of our confidence and creativity with what we wear. And by “edge” I mean either not neutral ( sick of black and ivory) or no sleeves. DVF wraps are good classics.

Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

I also start dialing into calls that are not important and taking a walking while in the meeting. I love home office!
