You work in investment management. What’s your advice on spending on fashion?

Quality matters. I want pieces that, God willing, I can wear 20 years from now. For me, it’s not about the hot new color, trend, or designer. I look for good construction and simple lines that work for my body, style, and profession. And, of course, add something fun — for me, that’s typically shoes.

How do you dress for class?

I like outfits that transition from the office to class, fund-raisers, or a night out with friends. I live in dresses. Other than jeans, I don’t believe in pants and I never wear flats. Being elegant in any situation is a must.

Are your female law students confused about what’s business-appropriate?

Women tend to go to extremes: on the one end, pantsuits only, on the other, too revealing. Striking a balance is key. It’s important that women don’t lose their sense of style and femininity but also dress appropriately for the occasion. Just because I work mainly with men, I don’t feel the need to sacrifice fashion.
