"The power suit is still here but a bit more stylish."
Summer is finally here, and so is a new season wardrobe. Yay! It’s time to sweep away the blacks and the greys from our winter staples because the gods have sent all the colors of the rainbow down from heaven - quite literally, this time around. The sun’s out, the flowers are blooming and we are all ready to sport our best looks. I can’t stop seeing the power suit in bold & bright colors, EVERYWHERE! Let’s step into our sartorial creativity together.
Chanel brought us the tailored women suits in the ’20s but the ’80s brought us power suits when women were entering the cooperate workforce. Cut to today, the power suit is still here but a bit more stylish.
After following the fall and winter 2019 runway collections in New York, London, Milan, and Paris over the last few months, it’s become abundantly clear that we are in the era of bold colorful suits.
"The key is to wear the same color from head-to-toe as I am doing here. This look is light and fun, the perfect mix to embrace warmer weather."
Power suits could be worn for obvious reasons to work but they can also be worn more casually. The key is to wear the same color from head-to-toe as I am doing here. This look is light and fun, the perfect mix to embrace warmer weather. To add a whimsical yet powerful touch to the whole look, I finished it off with this chic bag from Lautem. Such a sophisticated and chic look, if I must say so myself. Check out supermodel, Karlie Kloss looking sensational as she stepped out at New York Fashion Week wearing a baby blue Ralph Lauren suit.
"Bold suits are the next step into defining your personal style, and a little risk can go a long way."
The perfect color for you will depend on your skin tone. A bold suit, on top of being a fun alternative to your usual, will demonstrate confidence. Don’t doubt that all eyes will be on you as you stroll down the street. Hello! Victoria Beckham or as I like to call her, the “queen of suits”. She is effortlessly slaying in this loose-fitting emerald suit from her very own line.
Because they’re not traditional, the general public will see it as a bit of risk. However, bold suits are the next step into defining your personal style, and a little risk can go a long way. Step out of that comfort zone. Pick a color, find the suit, tailor it, and above all, have fun with it
