Lauren Caruso, Managing Editor at The Zoe Report:
"For me, feeling confident means the optimal mix of comfort and style. I've been building most of my outfits around blazers lately, and to keep them from feeling too stuffy at the office or out with friends — especially before the weather truly calls for a jacket of the wool variety — I like to wear mine with a high-waisted skirt or shorts and some sort of a crop top."

Allison McNamara, Founder of Mara Beauty:
“My schedule is jam-packed with meetings and events so looking pulled together and professional in a pinch is important. My go-to look tends to be a tee or button-up paired with high-waisted denim trousers, a blazer, and usually a scarf for flair. It's so simple and comfortable but never fails me. Plus, the easy addition of a scarf either around the neck or tied on a purse adds a pop of print and makes it appear like I put more thought into it than I did.” (Photo via Allison McNamara
Jennifer Pauline, Community Manager, Moderator, Creative Producer and Founder of @withcreators, a platform exploring purpose in the creator space around the world:
“Confidence is key for any successful outfit formula, so I’m always looking for silhouettes that accentuate the parts of my body that I love the most. Whether it’s a wrap dress from DVF, or a high-waisted trouser, I’m here for it all. I usually pair them with sneakers since I’m a girl on the go. I also LOVE my décolletage, so neck jewelry is equally as important as what I’m wearing. These days I’m wearing an assortment of necklaces I’ve gotten from the Slauson Swap meet along with my “empower” necklace from Sarah Chloe
and evil eye from Sydney Evan
. I’ve also got my eye on this diamond piece from emerging jewelry designer, Zenobia

Marisa Runyon, Senior Editor at Style, ETonline.com:
"For me, my go-to outfit formula is all about fit. I love pieces that highlight my natural waist—whether it's high-waisted denim, a well-tailored pencil skirt or, a midi-length wrap dress that hits me in just the right spot. I feel like I look best in those silhouettes and that helps me to feel my most confident." (Photo via Marisa Runyon
Sonia Langlotz, Founder of RoundTwelve:
“I feel most confident when I’m embracing my personal style and not necessarily worried about the dress code. You should always keep your audience in mind, but when I’m comfortable in my clothes, I know I command a room. I love color and feminine pieces, but I also have a soft spot for sneakers, so I try to dress them up whenever I can. My collection of Nikes now outweighs my heels, and I don’t have a problem with that at all!” (Photo via Sonia Langlotz
Emily Evans, Senior PR Manager at Ann Taylor:
"For me, it’s the LBD when it comes to a look that makes me confident no matter what. It never fails and is equally as appropriate for desk as it is dinner. You can never go wrong." (Photo via Emily Evans
