Lalena Luba, mom of two and VP, Global Public Relations at Kate Spade New York, knows all about dressing for the job. Here she shares some go-to looks.

What she wears for a meeting with a new manager...

She pairs a statement-making dress and earrings with approachable flats when greeting a new colleague. "I’m on the taller side so I find that wearing flats with a dress is a nice way to not overwhelm a new manager or colleague," she explains. "I also enjoy being comfortable and find I’m able to really focus when I am nimble on my feet. I love the balance of a calf length dress with a flat shoe—it’s a nice proportion that is unexpected yet chic in a slightly more casual way."

What she wears for a summer Friday...

A versatile chambray jumpsuit is her secret weapon for casual days. “It’s easy to move in but flattering on many shapes. You can dress it up with heels, add a jacket and boots in the colder months or wear a sandal as I do here if you will be walking from appointment to appointment. I love a scarf tied this way with denim, in particular."

What she wears for a big presentation...

For Lalena, fashion is all about finding a balance.“The studs on the suede jacket and skirt have a harder edge, so they go nicely with the frill of the flutter-sleeve top,” she says of the mix-and-match separates she relies on for major meetings. "Swipe on a strong lip and killer heels and you will get that budget approved!"

What she wears for a post-work event...

For a night out on the town, a medium length floral dress and strappy wedges is a comfy yet flattering pair. "I have a formula: swap lower heel or flat shoes for heels, switch from a handbag to a clutch and put on a brighter lipstick or a more intense eye. This transition takes five minutes or less if you keep a spare pair of heels, a clutch and a lipstick or eye shadow set near your desk."
