Power suits are holding strong and might even be one of the biggest trends for women this year. Are you excited about that too? What I especially love about this year’s version of the power suit trend is that it’s all about making it your own. And, power suits are super easy to adapt to your style. Read on for five ways to spin the trend your way.
What I’m Wearing:
Red blazer (option) | Red pants (on sale!) | Pumps (option)
Earrings (14K gold and 50% off) | Mac Rebel lipstick
1. Structured or Drapey?
I usually favor more drapey silhouettes. So, it’s no surprise I opted for the Express stripe power suit (seen before here). If you, however, prefer structure, the perfect structured suit is also out there for you.
2. Neutrals or Bold color?
There’s nothing as chic, classic, and polished as a classic black suit. But, if you like bold colors, by all means, rock a power suit in your favorite hue. In today’s look, I decided to go red.
3. Favorite Blazer Style?
Double-breasted, single-button, cropped, boyfriend cut, the options are plentiful when it comes to finding a blazer that suits your taste. So, choose accordingly. Can you tell that a boyfriend blazer is my go-to?
4. Most Flattering Pants?
Skinny, wide-leg, high-waisted, ankle, tapered, drapey, there’s a pair of pants that best flatters your body. And, your power suit would be fabulous when anchored by those perfect pants.
5. Power Suit Styling?
Going to work? You’d probably layer your power suit to make it appropriate for the culture of your work place. Going out? The styling possibilities are endless. Open blazer, closed blazer, lace under the blazer, nothing under the blazer, the choice is all yours!
