DALLAS — Career apparel has been given a promotion.
Seeking job security in the midst of a shaky economy and rising unemployment, women at all income levels are dressing for success and survival. They’re abandoning casual apparel on the job in favor of more stylish silhouettes they feel project confidence and power, including sleek sportswear, softly shaped suits, elegant tops and updated dresses with subtle touches of trends, according to retailers and vendors.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
