In the financial sector, "You are responsible for one of the things that many people hold most dear: their money," Williams points out. That means your outfit must project confidence with a professional and understated look. Wear a simple hairstyle (Williams recommends pulling hair back), and a suit or dress with a jacket - always in subdued, more neutral colors. Your shoes, bag, and accessories should also be simple so as not to distract from your qualifications.

She adds, "Speaking of fit, regardless of industry or what you wear, fit is the key to looking your best." By Lauren Le Vine, REDBOOK.
