Who: Elaine Liao Avin, 34
Management consultant, Deloitte
What she does: I help companies improve their business, which means everything from updating their infrastructure to integrating the operations of newly merged companies. On a day-to-day basis, I am at the location of my clients working hands-on with them to develop a solution for their organization. The consulting life can be tough (long hours on the road), but it has its perks.
Describe your work style: Architectural and polished. I love structured looks, bold colors, and prints, but I’ll pair them with more subtle pieces. Travel is a big part of my job (I currently spend four out of five workdays in Atlanta), so structured dresses/skirts and silk shirts are my go-to pieces—they look great after being in a suitcase, and the silk shirts soften up the traditional “consultant” outfit.
