Hi! I'm Debra Bednar-Clark.

As a self proclaimed girly-girl who started my career coding software, I never felt like I fit in with my male colleagues at work. I felt like I had to “dull my sparkle” so I could increase my credibility. And while I was able to climb the corporate ladder, I lacked fulfillment because I wasn’t being true to myself. It wasn’t until I united my business sense with my love of feminine colors, flowy dresses, cashmere cardigans, and open-toe heels, that I found success with fulfillment.

Throughout my 20-year career working at companies like Facebook, Microsoft, Accenture and more, I’ve learned that substance and style are not mutually exclusive. You can be a smart, driven, accomplished woman and love style too! In fact, being smart means recognizing the power of style and using it as an asset. But it needs to be authentic – what you wear needs to be inextricably connected with who you are and what you believe. When you pair the substance of who you are with what you wear, it opens doors and creates opportunities.

DB Style is Redefining


so women can align who they are with what they wear for greater impact and joy at work and in life.

When I’m not creating personalized lookbooks for women on DB Style, I’m running DB+co, my leadership coaching company that empowers women to bring their authentic, whole self to work so they lead like themselves and in their own way! Learn more about my career here.

I’m obsessed with SBUX soy lattes, reading historical fiction, and perusing Net-a-Porter, Goop and Pinterest. I live in New York with my incredibly supportive, loving (and stylish!) husband Michael Clark.

I love this quote by Epictetus because I believe that knowing who you are, believing in yourself, and showing it to the world is the foundation for everything great; in fact, it’s the key to realizing your greatest potential.

I live by three ideas when I’m making decisions that affect everything from work to my wardrobe.
