Sylvie di Giusto worked in human resources for more than 20 years before becoming an image consultant in 2009.
Her company, Executive Image Consulting, has worked with executives looking to improve how they present themselves and professionals looking to rise in the corporate hierarchy. She also gives dress-code consulting to corporations, which have included McKinsey, BMW, and Thomas Cook, according to her website.
With inspiration from Vicky Oliver’s book, “The Millionaire’s Handbook: How to Look and Act Like a Millionaire, Even If You’re Not,” we asked di Giusto how anyone could look like a millionaire, regardless of their net worth. Here’s what she said, with some of Oliver’s advice thrown in.

Every man should have at least one good suit, and every woman should have at least one good jacket with matching pants or a skirt. Di Giusto recommends that these “investment pieces” should feel expensive, but that for her clients, “The more they make, the more they have to invest.”
She clarifies that professionals can “shop smart,” as long as they don’t skimp on quality. She recommends visiting designer outlets, as well as online equivalents, like The Outnet and Gilt.
In her book, Oliver recommends sticking to the “one-third rule”: Buy “one-third as many clothes as you do now, but spend three times as much on each item.” So instead of buying three pairs of pants at average prices, buy one pair of expensive pants and wear them everywhere.
