From statement-making jumpsuits to sporty mesh, discover this season’s most striking and powerful style trends.
It’s hard to imagine a more immediate indicator of status and power than style. #e way we dress reveals to the world who we are and who we want to be. For fashion lovers, getting dressed is a daily transformation, and donning an ensemble that re%ects one’s personal style can imbue the wearer with a feeling of power and con!dence. “Power dressing” has gone through many phases over the years, but most trends of the 20th century revolved around incorporating traditionally masculine or gender neutral elements into womenswear. #e boxy Chanel jackets of the 1920s, trim pantsuits of professional women in the 1970s and towering shoulder pads in blazers of the 1980s all aimed to help women feel empowered in a world dominated by men. While power dressing was supposed to help women blend in, dressing powerfully makes them stand out – whether swathed in a silk gown or out!tted in a tailored suit. #is season’s statement-making trends run the gamut from utilitarian military colors to dramatic kimonoinspired pieces, so don’t be afraid to !nd a look that is commanding, inspired and completely you.
