She’s got it right..classic, fitted feminine suits (instead of those awful boxy masculine types) made from luxurious fabrics in rich colors.
But, it’s her power pearls that are really all the talk!
Check out her large-sized South Seas and Tahitian pearls, especially the gray and cream strand of marble sized pearls she’s been sporting with dark suits and tweeds.
Although the real thing can set you back at least $20,000 or more dollars, these definitely make the statement, I am woman. I am powerful!
These pearls are great because, while they basically set a conservative tone like all pearls do (and that’s what we want in business), there is a twist. The unusual color is modern and fresh and sends the message that Nancy’s ideas are that way too. The large size sends the message “elegant authority”.
Imagine Nancy in a string of tiny cream pearls or a teeny thin gold chain with a delicate teardrop diamond hanging down. She just wouldn’t have the same presence or authority. She would seem weak and outdated.
So lesson here is: Women in positions of power, be aware of the message your jewelry sends. You don’t need much, just a couple of statement pieces that let you enjoy your femininity but show that you mean business.
