Power Dressing for Women 2013

"women no longer need to wear powerful-looking clothes in order to earn respect from their peers, but fashion is still a confidence-booster" - Giorgio Armani.

The Accessories:

The Power Bag — A structured bag in a dark color shows that you are organized. Avoid: Any slouchy bag or massively over-sized tote shows a lack of discipline and organization.

A pair of polished, well-maintained shoes is associated with someone who takes pride in themselves and knows how to look after things. Avoid: Open-toe shoes, stripper-inspired platforms or anything scruffy.

The Dresses:

A must-have for any powerful woman’s wardrobe - the knee-length, semi-form-fitting sheath dress. Why: The clean lines speak to your strategic thinking. Go for single colour. Avoid: Any hemline more than 2 inches above your knees.

White shows the simplicity, organization and efficiency. White gives a fresh start. Go with plain white blouses combined with pale-earth-colour minimalistic bottoms. Avoid: Anything see-through that allows your colleagues to see a glimpse of your bra, or any button-down shirt that’s too tight across the bust and risks exposing you mid-meeting!

"When in doubt, wear red" - Bill Blass. The statement couldn’t be more right. Red is the colour vibrating power and confidence. Go for Red suits, jackets and shoes. Avoid: Avoid pale shades of Red and specially colour yellow.

Square shoulders - a symbol of power and authority. The new power jacket features a far more narrow, longer and leaner silhouette. Instead of a boxy shape, opt for a blazer that falls in a more relaxed way along the body. And skip the buttons in favor of a minimalistic look. Wear it over a dress or with pants and a shirt. Avoid: Cardigans!
