Who: Samantha DeZur, 26
Vice President, Communications and Industry Relations, Education Finance Council
What I do: I’m a public affairs professional. I focus on a variety of policy issues and work to advocate on behalf of our organization’s membership.
My work style: I typically don’t follow trends. I wear what makes me feel the most like me. My personal style in general is chic, classic, and elegant—at least that’s what I’m going for! That translates to my work style with clean, professional, feminine looks with a dash of flavor.
For a Meeting
When I’m in a meeting, giving a presentation, or representing the company, I always try to go with my most sophisticated look while still maintaining my personal style. This long, slimming skirt and feminine-but-professional top make me feel confident, which shows in my speaking.
J.Crew pencil skirt, Banana Republic Mad Men Collection bow-neck blouse, Marc Jacobs ring, Pour La Victoire pumps.
Friday is my chance to wear things I wouldn’t normally wear to work, like my favorite boots. This look is comfortable enough for a Friday, but is still clean and put-together.
Tory Burch leather boots, DKNY tights, Susana Monaco sheath dress, Adia Kibur bracelets.
Desk to Drinks
This is the type of outfit I wear when I know I have to go straight from the office to dinner or cocktails. The bright color and unique neckline of the dress and statement earrings give it a fun look, while the style and cut of the dress keep it work-appropriate.
Trina Turk dress, Amrita Singh earrings, Pour La Victoire pumps.
