Dress for Success is a 1975 book by John T. It was a bestseller and was followed in 1977 by The Women's Dress for Success Book. Together, the books popularized the concept of "power dressing". Molloy's advice was unusual because they ran actual tests by showing drawings to people and compiling their perceptions of the impact of the clothes.

According to the cover of the book, Molloy – who published what we'll refer to as the WDSB in 1977 – had previously written the best-selling . New Women's Dress for Success.

Although specific cuts and patterns of clothing have gone out of style his research is still very relevant and his advice is like nothing else I have found. Molloy's advice is based strictly on research, not his own opinions, as so many other work-appropriate clothing advice columns tend to be.

I was one of the first women Merrill Lynch hired as a stockbroker. This was our Bible. It is hysterical and historical. I sent it as a gift to a young assistant stockbroker to show her how far we've come and how far we haven't.

Men always look better and more "savvy" in a good suit. This book has great information, but does need an "update". A worthwhile read for any person job hunting, or looking to advance in their career.

I love getting old books for their occasional anachronism but mostly because I think older authors were generally more sensible. This book is a bit anachronistic, but I love its candor. No one today could write about dressing to impress women without some references to faddish fashions and hipsterism of shows like "Sex in the City." Molloy is clearly more grounded in the timely fields of evolutionary biology and neuroaesthetics than those writing today on the same topics he covers. Some specific recommendations may be outdated, and the format is not really adequate to be of practical use as a guide to purchasing, but a fun read nonetheless.

An old classic, still largely relevant. You must not be oversensitive as some of the advice in the book, it's strongly cast in terms of economic class and race. I would say business/society has moved beyond this to an extent, so the rules on "lower middle class" vs "upper middle class" are not as rigid as it was back in 1975 when the book was written. I would say the book is still valuable as many people operate this way subconsciously; it's on you to accommodate their prejudices when you are interviewing, selling, or any other relationship building activity.

Ties get a huge amount of attention in the book. Thing is a lot of businesses now don't expect a tie to be worn; in most cases, I'd wear one and follow his rules if there is any doubt. I did find interesting the commentary that guys in ties seldom get arrested. This is probably true, what a nice easy way to avoid police harassment, if that is a problem for you. Actually when you consider that mug shots of guys never have them wearing ties. Is this cause or effect? Who knows, but interesting nonetheless.

Shoes get short shrift, I do think they are as important as a tie to your outfit, if not more important now, as ties are rarely worn 7 days a week at most workplaces. I would highly recommend as much consideration for your shoes, as now your customer/interviewer is going to be female, they notice shoes a lot more than men do generally. Stick with black on most suits, wear oxfords, not derbys or bluchers. If you are dressing a bit more casual these are OK.

What I do now is pull up images of the CEO of the company you are selling to or interviewing. You can see what is acceptable to the highest levels of the company, you can go a step below it in terms of breaking Malloys rules. My companies CEO wears lime green ties, pink shirts and this is verboten by Malloy's rules. I could then wear a dark green tie most likely and be OK. Keep it conservative; that's the best advice.

A great resource in how to dress for business. We used this in one of our paralegal classes as an example of what to wear to interviews as well as on a daily basis. Modesty is still an important part of business - especially for women. Buy this for your college age daughters!

somewhat used, but o.k.
I'm writing a novel set in 1980 and this book is helping me clothe several characters who are female executives.
