How to style the newest generation of women’s power suits.
While there have never been more options for workwear, workplace dress codes have dramatically changed over the last few decades. Recently, the women’s power suit has made a comeback, emphasizing women’s high-lever roles in the workforce. It’s also reached beyond a workwear staple to become a top fashion trend.
The power suit is easy to style and makes a strong statement. This wardrobe staple’s clean, tailored lines stand out in a crowd, and its simplistic silhouette radiates confidence.
So just how did the women’s power suit become a style must-have for the workplace? Meredith Lepore at career development site Levo, said, “We are seeing this trend because there are just more women in these top positions who determine what is an appropriate look for the office.”
Lest you not feel like suiting is blah, let me remind you of all the times that Victoria Beckham has rocked a power suit. And she is, quite frankly, a very powerful – and stylish – mama.
So let’s throw on our blazers and discover the suit cuts that are coming out to play this Spring.
Oversized, Slouchy Power Suits
Suits can so much more interesting than your typical menswear cut. Oversized, padded shoulders are just as sexy as fitted power suits. It’s more of a relaxed look that says, I own my style and who I am.
One of my favorite oversized suits is GRLFRND’s Power Blazer in beige. It’s a cool, sleek, and powerful set of suit that represents the empowerment of women. Style it similarly to the photo below for a super sleek look. And here’s a less expensive version as well.
Why Stay Simple?
Tiffany Battle, Creator of The Werk! Place said, “With any look, I like to infuse my personality. So, my power suit is definitely going to have a little mixed print flavor to it.”
And yes! A power suit doesn’t always have to be about the one-toned classic black suit. There are so many prints that elevate a suit and make it cool.
Have you seen the colorful, patterned suit blazers from Dolce & Gabbana? They have so many variations in suit jackets, from a rose print suit, black and glitter gold suit, to black and metallic green suit. I was mind-blown away when I saw those suits with matching pants. It is suitable for parties or special events to stand out from the crowds and give a nice first impression.
You can also try some more affordable printed blazers we’ve curated just for you.
Wondering what to wear under your suit jacket?
What to wear inside the blazer depends on your own personal style, because SO many types of tops go well with a blazer. During the warm spring season, I like to wear it with anything from a dress shirt to a t-shirt, depending on how dressy or casual I want to look. During the wintertime, I prefer a turtleneck sweater or a regular sweater. You can also pair it with simple blouses, peplum tops, camisoles, crop tops, or even hoodies. What you wear inside will help you totally change up your look for any occasion.
