Ironing a Suit Jacket: To eliminate wrinkles for the interview, try three things: 1) Turn the jacket inside out if you're going to iron it. The heat from the iron makes some jacket fabric shiny. Flipping it around protects it. 2) Turn the iron's steam up a high as possible. Moisture is your friend. 3) Try hanging your jacket in the bathroom and run hot water in the shower - that may do the trick.
But the prize for the most virtuosic deployment of the work uniform today goes to Christine Lagarde, the French lawyer who runs the International Monetary Fund.

She’s nearly 60 and succeeds in looking both female and powerful without seeming to overthink either. Never has so little looked like so much.
