A woman in a suit is trendier than ever right now. Fall 2018 (and Spring 2019) runways sent the strong message that power dressing for women is back, and it’s a movement. As someone who lives in the Midwest, I’m excited to see how this trend trickles down into the area because Midwest style can be overtly casual. And, this power dressing trend is the opposite. It’s forceful and feminine.
What I’m wearing:
Theyskens’ Theory blazer (similar) | Cuffed ankle pants (similar) | Moto jacket (option)
Pumps (similar) | Lip: YSL (9)
If you’re like me, you’re ready to run out and buy new suits. But, I bet you also have all the ingredients you need to start power dressing today. A sharp blazer? Check. Smart pants? Double check. Power pumps? Check. I shopped my closet for this entire look.
In this particular outfit, I decided to make my statement suit someone sexy by wearing the blazer solo. For fashion-forward affairs, I could achieve the same vibe by wearing a lace camisole (like this one) underneath. I also relied on the double coat trend (read more about that here) to add a pop of color to my look.
