Power suits aren’t going anywhere in 2019. From oversized to tailored to embellished to neon, the possibilities for dressing powerfully are endless and I’m all about it.
For someone who wears some form of suiting almost every day for work, it may be hard to imagine that I’d have any desire to put on a suit for the weekends, but what can I say…whether it’s because I’m a creature of habit, a trend enthusiast, a woman who loves looking and feeling powerful, or some combination of all the above, I can’t stop finding new ways to reinvent “The Power Suit.” And, I’m clearly not the only one. Suits are so on trend, the rich and famous are wearing them down the red carpet and to lavish weddings (did you see the photos from Marc Jacob’s recent nuptials? gorgeous suits galore).
Despite all this, I recognize that power suits are not without controversy. Should they be feminine or masculine, formal or casual, solid or printed? Well, I’d argue, whatever makes you feel ultimately powerful.
For a recent fashion party, I wanted to make a style statement in a power suit. Luckily for me, I’ve amassed quite a collection and chose what’s become my favorite Spring suit – composed of an oversized cream double breasted blazer with high waisted cream wide leg trousers. I’ve worn this suit just about a million different ways – with a crisp white button down for work, a simple silky shell for an evening event, as separates, and finally for a party vibe with a blush feather cropped cami. This fun and flirty feather cami has been a staple in my closet for years and it’s light blush tone helped to create a monochromatic look. To keep the tone consistent, I wore a pair of beige suede aquazurra lace up heels and clear beaded tote. Finally, for accessories, I opted for gold toned bobby pins and hairclips and a vintage puffed mariner (Gucci link) chain.
