Power Dressing, 3 Ways.

General Description: If in the early 80’s career-driven women dressed up –not for power, but to simply fit in, skirt suits in black, grey or navy, partnered with a crisp white blouse, skin-toned pantyhose and plain pumps were the assumed uniform. But as women made their mark in the corporate world, their strides were matched with an elevated wardrobe. Women added glamor and sensuality to functional, comfort-laden pieces.

Sensible Slacks
Black slacks were always a staple work piece. It’s a versatile number, but can be dull when styled with just as basic pieces. Instead of plain slacks or trousers, slip on dark colored, minimalist overalls. They’re still professional, yet fun enough for casual Fridays. But of course, work will always demand a sleek and polished approach. Pair the cool-looking overalls with statement-making pumps. Heels that elevate you will always add professional poise. Throw over a blazer to add more power punch, then easily take it off when you’re ready for a night out on the town.

Authoritative Proportions
Power looks today, combine nonconformity with playfulness, restraint and an element of surprise. A figure-hugging dress or pencil skirt may be expected, but mixing in some masculinity can exude a woman who is fearless, smart and cultured. An oversized coat paired with wide leg pants, is an ultra-cool and edgy way to dress up for the colder months or for overly airconditioned offices. Wear the pieces over a basic white tee, or a crisp and clean classic white shirt that will always serve as a power piece.

Striking Suit
Definitely not for the wallflowers and reserved for strong, determined and unapologetically stylish women. Modern power dressing is matching workwear with a fearless and optimistic state of mind. And undoubtedly, head-to-toe plaid is a sure way to make an impression or to command a board room. The silhouette is traditional, perfectly saying you mean business, but the punchy print signals personality and creativity. Pair the stylish and utilitarian look with black heels, and when the clock strikes happy hour, unbutton the blazer to reveal a lacy blouse or crop top.
