Lisbeth Salander, the in-your-face heroine of Stieg Larsson's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, isn't exactly what you'd call girly. Her rough-and-tumble style, which has been described in fashion circles as 'fancy Goth,' is dark, edgy and, above all, impossible to ignore. How to channel Salander's uniquely seductive brand of power dressing with workplace dress codes to obey? Slip on a silvery statement ring with a glossy, mysteriously murky stone (and maybe amp up the eyeliner).
