Power Dressing

Share

Happy Monday Loves!

When I hear the phrase power dressing, I think of confident, powerful, driven individuals represented by their outfits. On first impressions I think power dressing would be perceived as formal suits, crisp shirts, pleated trousers etc. However, in my opinion this could not be further from the truth.

I feel the most confident when I’m wearing the most basic as fuck clothing (understated chic) with strong, powerful accessories, which speak louder than words. The days of try-hard, I look better than you outfits are as over as old episodes of the Simple Life. Nowadays power dressing is all about comfort, ease and practically, hence the rise of the sports-luxe trend! That’s why my Gucci princetown mules have been my go-to footwear essentials the entire spring/summer season; sadly I’ve had to retire them now the colder temperatures have settled in. Of course I had to be predictable and pair it with my gorgeous Gucci Dionysus handbag. A black v-neck t-shirt, classic skinny jeans and a sophisticated duster coat and I’m ready to take on the universe!

That being said, we cannot forget that Christmas is precisely 27 days away so if you are looking for a powerful dress to mark the festive season, House of Fraser has you covered with a selection of beautiful women’s dresses.

    I like your take on power dressing – it should definitely be a personal thing – less about suits and heels, more about what makes US feel powerful!
    Your bag is everything, by the way!
