Ladies say goodbye to the stereotypical power suit, better known as pantsuits. Power suits are not your typical professional business wear anymore, as they transition into fashion with slim fit, bold colors and style.
Historically the power suit is well known as a menswear piece, but don’t get it twisted ‘the future is female’ (Instyle). Coco Chanel invented the classic Chanel suit, implementing masculine silhouettes and elements to women’s wardrobe. Femininity doesn’t always mean dresses and A-line skirts.
But, it returns with Hillary Clinton showcasing that the power suit can be both feminine and fun. Being recognized as an influential and powerful woman, Hillary’s role as a politician and fashion icon played a major role in society, as she uses fashion to her advantage while participating in the media.
One of the most dominating trends to return on the red-carpet that highlights women empowerment.
From sharply tailored trousers to slouchy checkered colors, this two-piece suit trend has flooded the wardrobe of everyday women to celebrities. Opt for a monochromatic theme, bright pastel or head to toe print. Either way, the options are endless.
The female power suit represents the girl-power movement.
In London, Paris, Milan, and New York models wore chic power suits that are easy to adapt to your own real-life wardrobe. We witness the best two-piece suits during Valentino, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Céline, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Dior, and Christian Siriano. Take it from power to play as it has been the go-to-outfit from the runway to street style.
