Power dressing is one way women can ooze confidence and stand out from the crowd. The most important part of power dressing is looking and feeling confident. This means that you need to wear what you love and are comfortable in to show poise and assurance.
How to Power Dress
Tailor to Perfection.
Have your suits tailored to fit you impeccably.
Think Classic Over Trendy.
Pencil skirts, blazers, elegant dresses and well-fitted pants are the top choices for power dressing. These looks pair well with black sheers.
For a classy and elegant look, go minimalist. Choose a small sophisticated necklace or bracelet over costume jewelry.
Use Power Colors.
In addition to traditional blacks and greys, add red. Nothing says power more than the color red. Women politicians usually have reds, whites and blues in the mix of their blacks and greys. That's probably partially because of patriotism but it also shows power. Red blazers, suits or pencil skirts are a way to add some color into your power wardrobe.
Spend a Few Extra Dollars on a Few Pieces.
When it comes to power dressing, choose quality over quantity. It's better to a have a smaller wardrobe with a few really nice pieces, than a large wardrobe.
Shoes Can Make the Outfit.
Heels are often statement pieces and add height, to give you that powerful towering feeling. Pops of color from the right heels can dress up work wear and give it a sharp look. Pointed toes are often a go-to shape in power dressing.
Pay attention to the details such as well-manicured nails, and sleek hairstyles that don’t leave strands hanging out and messy. For makeup, use neutral shades that accentuate your eyes, cheekbones and lips.
Nothing says power like sheer nude or sheer black legwear with pencil skirts. Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle know the power of nude sheers. Sheers show sophistication and give a uniform, smooth legs look. Investing in a good pair of comfortable sheers can complete your look.
