Power Suit

18 Flares 18 Flares ×

When you think of a woman in a power-suit, the first thing that comes to mind is usually Melanie Griffith in Working Girl, clad in a matching skirt suit with obvious shoulder pads and big-and-bigger hair. Most modern women are glad to leave this look behind (even when the runways are having an 80’s revival), but are often left wondering new ways to wear a suit while jetting around the workplace. Ladies, meet the statement suit–the contemporary cousin to the power suit; this season, the ladysuit is all about matching separates in bold prints.

If you’re looking to cash-in on this nouveau-flashy trend, the most important element that you have to consider when picking a suit is that every piece (from the jacket to the pants) should fit well. With a trend like this, if you put a colorful pattern on top of an ill-fitting suit and you’ll be sure to have a disaster on your hands. Not every woman is one-size-fits-all though, so if you find a style that you love, but needs a couple of minor tweaks, then invest in a good tailor. Once you have the perfect fit down all you have to do is find a print that looks super-fab on you!
