1. Reach for Statement Earrings to Go From Day to Night

“I often go straight from the office to dinner or events and the quickest, chicest, and simplest way to transform a day look into an evening look is by putting on a great pair of statement earrings. I love these Signature Medium Oval Earrings from my fine jewelry collection—they are easy to pair with anything!”

2. Trump’s Best Boardroom Outfit Ever

“My go-to meeting outfit is a classic conservative black dress. I love Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dresses, especially now that I am pregnant, and clean silhouettes from Catherine Malandrino. A great well fitting black dress always looks sharp and professional.”

3. Embrace Color at Work!

“I love wearing color to work. It definitely brightens up the day. For a not too casual Casual Friday look, I recommend wearing a dress with an interesting pattern, like this dress from Shoshanna that I wore this season! The style is still appropriate for the work environment however the colors and pattern make it more interesting than basic suits!”

Trump’s Shoshanna dress is no longer available, but try a new one from the label’s summer collection, like this twist front pattern silk-chiffon tank dress; $395 at Shopbop.com.

4. What to Wear This Summer: White and Khaki!

“In the summer, choose clean silhouettes in lightweight, natural fabrics like cottons, silks and linens. I love separates in neutral colors that are summer appropriate like crisp white shirts and khaki pencil skirts! Layers are also important as I jump between meetings outside of the office—New York City summer heat can be brutal!—and overly air-conditioned offices. I always have a cardigan or a blazer on hand.”

5. The Most Comfortable Work Outfit: A Shirtdress!

“This shirt dress that I wore on episode 9 of the Celebrity Apprentice is so comfortable and super chic! The rich satin fabric combined with the peachy color paired well with the rose gold and rock crystal earrings and bangles from my jewelry collection!”

9. Go for Minimal Makeup at Work
