If you work the right job, you can wear flip flops at work.

I don't think any one particular thing stands out consistently. A big smile can overcome just about any sartorial snafu, IMHO.

There really is something to that! Some years ago there was a book / system regarding that, called "Color me Beautiful". Ever since I looked into it, I have since always held clothing up close to my face in a mirror, prior to trying on in a store. I had learned which colors were best, what "season" I am, how the wrong colors will "drain your face", instead of enhancing it and how skin tones vary. It really makes a difference, even with wearing gold or silver Jewelry.

I know we got a bit off the subject, but this is definitely an aspect. I had mentioned about just being "put together" (not relating to what was posed), and I think if one appears appropriate, they will have confidence.

The silouette that the clothes and head and body form to flatter the person and express her sense of style at that moment.

For years I wouldn't even buy yellow because I just thought for some reason I couldn't wear it, but it makes my eyes really stand out so I wear it all the time now. Purple, green, and royal blue area also really great colors for me. I always try to dress in colors that make my facial features/skin tone stand out.

I'm going to say pants/jeans/skirt ect is most important as it can define the outfit from casual or more dressy. I would say maybe shoes are second, as they also can be more casual, fun, dressy ect to.

I think they're all important, but frankly, I think the top is most important.

I also vote cleanliness and attitude.

But to answer the question asked within those parameters,
If one of those elements listed above looks really crappy, it'll bring down the whole outfit. As to what element could elevate a crappy outfit, I personally feel like the top is the best, but that's because I don't focus on shoes, and I don't always notice pants (unless they are completely inappropriate or crazy-- can we all please remember that tight yoga pants are NOT really pants- unless you are on your way to do yoga OR you have a long tunic-type top/dress that covers your rear), and I'm not really into head gear (but hairstyle/upkeep can make a huge difference- I had a supervisor once who was so put together and had great fashion sense, but always had heinous hair- greasy-looking, no style, and just unattractive- and it really took away from the awesome presentation the rest of her was making).

Shoes have a lot to do with it, but wearing the nicest shoes still can't make a bad outfit look good.

The top and bottom combination!
