From the Plane to the Meeting: Dressing for Success while Traveling

Dressing for success on the road is 10x harder than dressing for your average workday. “What to wear .. slacks, a dress, or skirt? Will it wrinkle on the plane? Will my wardrobe fit their culture?” – These questions are always top of mind when preparing for a business trip. Dress for Success is committed to answering those questions.

In honor of the first-ever National Business Traveler Day on April 24th, Dress for Success is celebrating wardrobes on the road and the business traveler within all of us. By supporting 1,000,000+ women in 160 cities, we work to provide business travelers with attire on the go.

The corporate world is ever-evolving as women grow in their spending power and presence in the boardroom. The face of the business traveler has shifted and today there’s almost a 50% chance that the person across the desk negotiating an important business deal is a woman dressed for success.

Dress for Success CEO Joi Gordon believes that, “More and more women are increasingly serving as the ‘face’ of companies critical business dealings around the country. ‘Dress for Success’ serves to reinforce recognition of the equal and significant role women play in moving our economy forward, especially through business travel. In addition to building awareness, National Business Traveler Day will play an important role in supporting our mission of providing women with the tools they need to build their confidence and succeed in the workplace. Many women we serve may well become future business travelers for their companies.”

In this spirit, National Business Traveler Day will shower business travelers with surprises of appreciation with a chance to win The Business Traveler Dream Sweepstakes and “Free Domestic First-Class Upgrades for 20 Years” ($5,000 a year for 20 years to cover a lifetime of domestic first class upgrades) along with thousands of other prizes. Enter now for your chance to win here until May 18th.

The six-week celebration kicked-off on March 14th and will include more giveaways, special events and select airport activations on April 24th. Don’t miss out on your chance to enter the sweepstakes until May 18th!

Dress for Success hopes that National Business Traveler Day and everyday is an ongoing celebration of women and their success in the workplace and on the road.
