You know the rule, you must dress for the job that you want, not the job that you have.  These days you can dress for that corner office without breaking the bank, says Tamika Martell-Price, wardrobe consultant/personal stylist and owner of A-Line Chicago, a professional image consultation service.

Price is a certified stylist to the stars and has been plucked by Rachael Ray to share her sense of style with the nation. Price also hosts Impeccable Style and Beauty workshops (with makeup artist Nielah O.) where attendees can receive personal style consultations, private shopping, and networking all in one stop.

Here, Price shares three vital tips to incorporate today’s trends with classic looks that will get you noticed for all the right reasons.

De-clutter your closet. “You have to know what you are working with and remove the excess clutter from your closet.  Take an audit of all of your garments and toss anything that does not fit your body, lifestyle, or personal style.”
