People associate power dressing with big companies and stiff suit-UP looks. But in 2017, with so many new shirts, skirts and trousers styles on the market, this label can mean a lot of new things. To do power dressing in 2017 you need a little bit of patience and a few tweaks here and there.
Classic power dressing means looks which give a woman confidence and a well put together ensemble. It’s all about skirt or trouser grey suits with white shirts and high heels. And black pen trousers or skirts with blouses and jackets with oversized shoulders. But if you want to try this style outside of work to feel strong, add one power item to any jeans look, usually a blazer.
Upgrade your power dressing in 2017
To upgrade your power dressing in 2017, you have to try out colorful outfits and prints. Tailored suits in neutral colors are great, but opt to wear a flower printed suit for Casual Friday to dip your toes into this new trend. Swap your killer high heels with kitten heels when you can and pair a staple suit with a t-shirt that has a powerful motto.
Don’t be afraid to power dress down with a suit, but with sneakers. Or sexy it up a bit with a cropped trouser, a statement stripped shirt, mesh socks and high heels. Want comfort above all? Try a pair of high waist culottes with a sweater, but posh it up with vintage shoes, bags and precious jewelry. Have a little bit of fashion fun at least one day per week.
How to do glamorous power dressing in 2017
If you’re going to an event and you don’t want a shape-embracing dress or a loose one, opt to wear suits. Try a white tuxedo for a change or go bold with a precious blue velvet outfit. Keep your make-up simple, but don’t forget about red lips and nails.
If you need a glam pick-me-up for your stiff beige skirt suit, add precious jewelry and a belt to finish the outfit. Then, when you have a night event, opt for a faux fur coat and snake printed pointy shoes to upgrade the look. Keep the coat and shoes, but add trousers and a black minimalist turtleneck with a velvet blazer for professional meetings outside of the office.
May the power be with you!
