After graduating from SMU with her master’s degree, Gennéa Squire de Torres began working in talent management consulting. She is the founder of Dallas-based Cadre Talent Consulting. Squire de Torres believes investing in human capital is the best investment any business leader can make. She also believes in investing in her wardrobe to look respectable and professional with her clients—but with feminine flair to “not just be another consultant in a suit.”

What I Do: “As a principal at Cadré Talent Consulting, I collaborate with clients and private equity groups to identify, develop, and help retain their top talent.”

Style Icon: “My style icon was my grandmother. She always wore beautiful skirt suits from the top designers. In terms of celebrity style, I gravitate toward Jackie Kennedy, Victoria Beckham, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. I love solid-color pieces with good tailoring. I am always looking for something classic with details that make the piece unique.”

On The Job: “I work mostly with executives on confidential projects, so it is important to look respectable and professional. I always add a hint of feminine flair to not just be another consultant in a suit. My wardrobe conveys a serious conversation about the future of their organization and their employees.”

Fashion Inspiration: “I’m inspired by wherever I am. I love to travel, and I’m fluent in French and Spanish. I once had a conversation with a friend about how when you speak multiple languages, you have personalities for each of those cultures. To me, the same goes for my style.”

Style Defined: “Classic with a feminine edge.”

Fashion Essentials: “My iPhone and a water bottle to stay hydrated.”

Go-To Look: “When I’m off-duty, it’s jeans, boots, and a tailored blazer. Professionally, I love a good pencil skirt with a beautiful structural blouse. Heels for whenever I am not with my children.”

How I Accessorize: “Shoes are my favorite accessory. I have some pairs that are almost 20 years old, and I put effort into keeping them in excellent condition.”
