Suzanne Shank

President/CEO of Siebert Brandford Shank & Co., LLC, an investment banking firm

Fashion style:

Elegant and understated. “Being on Wall Street limits some of the things I can wear,” she says. “But my personal wardrobe is more adventurous. I follow in my mom’s footsteps wearing things that are flattering to me as opposed to what the new trend might be.”

Favorite shops:

“Because I travel a lot, I shop all over the world,” she says. “Locally, I shop at Tender, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.”

Favorite designers:

Lanvin, Etro, Valentino. “And I love Tom Ford suits.”

Fashion debut:

“I didn’t really appreciate fashion until I moved to New York as a young woman,” she recalls. “The volume of offerings was mind-boggling – every major retailer and designer. I had to learn how to dress from day to evening. Plus as I began traveling abroad, I came to appreciate couture.”

Fashion advice:

“Find a great personal shopper,” she says. “You’d be amazed what you can accomplish by finding someone who shops for a living who understands you, your lifestyle, and what is flattering to you. That’s critical.”
