Why Your Style Matters With Lauren Messiah
Show Notes

“Self-perception is everything. Even if you’re just staring at your own reflection in Zoom, the way that you perceive yourself helps your productivity.”

—  Lauren Messiah

They say that clothes make the man, but do they also make the entrepreneur?

Your style and how you present yourself are definitely a part of your personal brand, and your customers and would-be customers definitely take notice. So, how do you dress for the success that you dream about?

Celebrity stylist Lauren Messiah helps her clients learn to shop like a stylist and choose clothing that supports their goals — this goes far beyond just dressing for the job you want!

“I’m kind of the anti-stylist… I don’t care about trends, I don’t care about someone being a size 2” Lauren explains. 

The pandemic lockdowns of 2020 and 2021 have changed office dress codes and the style landscape. In this episode of The Business Society Podcast, Lauren reveals the new professional fashion standards, how to shop to fit your goals, and why dressing well even when working from home is so important.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌

  • How office dress codes have changed and relaxed since the pandemic — and what this means for your professional style
  • How Lauren landed a traditional publishing deal after self-publishing her first book
  • Why staying on-trend is nowhere near as important as designers and magazines would have you believe
