The Write Accessory

As a professional, you pay attention to the impression you make. Everything – from that new suit to your favorite pair of “who’s the boss” pumps makes a difference. So the next time you reach into that stunning briefcase, you might want to think again about pulling out that old pen you acquired during your last stay at the Four Seasons. Don’t think pens matter?

“If you’re sitting in a meeting, others will take notice of your writing instrument. It makes a statement about who you are and how you choose to live and work,” says Brownie Wiegel from Newell Rubbermaid Fine Writing & Luxury Accessories. “A woman spends as much time choosing accessories as she does her outfit, and when you think about it, pens are just another great accessory with lots of functionality.”

Wondering what type of writing instrument is best for you? “Most professional women prefer the roller ball or ballpoint pen. It writes like the fountain pen without the hassle of the ink, and lays down a very good line.” We like these from Parker: the Facet and Sonnet.

The Pulse, a smartpen created by Livescribe, records and links audio to what you write.

Getting a pen engraved can showcase your brand. Companies like Tiffany & Co. and Joon New York offer options with engraving.
