J.Crew knows that you only get one shot at a first impression, and your outfit can make a strong statement before you even start your pitch. That’s why they’ve teamed up with LinkedIn and WeWork for a new campaign, tapping 11 entrepreneurs, including three girl bosses, to show what power dressing REALLY means. Scroll down to see how three up-and-coming HBICs have worked J.Crew into their businesses.
Cynthia Nimmo is the president and CEO of Women’s Funding Network, which, according to their site, is “the largest philanthropic network in the world devoted to women and girls.” They raised over $410 million in 2015 for their current and past initiatives, which include women’s economic security, worldwide gender equality, and reproductive health and justice. In her shot, Nimmo is wearing J.Crew’s New Perfect Fit T-Shirt ($33) matched with the High-Rise Cameron Pant ($80). To make the look extra profesh, she tops it off with pair of Suede Smoking Slippers ($148).
Lauryn Chun is the founder of Mother-in-Law’s Kimchi, which brings small-batch, artisan kimchi to your local grocery shelf. The name is inspired by the tradition of Korean mother-in-laws passing on their family kimchi recipe to brides who marry their sons. Chun is wearing the J.Crew Silk Button-Up Shirt ($98), paired with their Vintage Straight Jean ($125), because yes, denim is business casual now.
Michelle Dalzon is the founder and chief visionary of Black Owned Market, “a dynamic pop-up experience that connects Black-Owned brands to conscious consumers.” Through the market, she hopes “to generate brand awareness” by spotlighting the stories and creators behind black-owned businesses. Dalzon is sporting the Wrap Top in Striped Blue ($70) and the Cropped Silk Pull-On Pant ($138).
