Power dressing is the hottest new buzz in the fashion capitals of the globe, but what is this styling enigma all about? Ladies, it’s about flaunting your sensuality with deep coats of masculine glamour, and cinching up your curves to flaunt a sharply structured silhouette with charming debonair. 

In this article, I’m going to walk you through some dashing power dressing tips to help you break free from the horrid monotony of those lose and lanky pantsuits and flaunt your curves with a masculine svelte.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Power Suit

A definite must-have for all working women, power suits are the most remarkable pick to sharpen your curves, slim down your waist and flaunt a bold masculine attitude with confidence. Pair them up with your platform heels, stilettos, sneakers and converse-whatever you feel comfortable with. The trick to power dressing is always being comfortable in your skin!

Break Fashion Norms

Power dressing isn’t all about owning this and wearing that, but in fact, it is about cultivating a boss lady attitude and owning up to your own sense of style. So ladies, it’s time to bring out the eccentricity with a heavy dose of glamour and break free from all nonsensical fashion norms. Pair up a popping red blazer with a sleek black pencil dress, or even a multi-colored coat atop a plaid pantsuit.  

Statement Pieces 

Time to take out your high end designer guns and flaunting with cleverly layered outfits. Now, it’s not necessary to have dozens of expensive designer outfits and accessories, all it takes is the RIGHT ones. For instance, a sharply structured Gucci or Fendi tote bag, a signature Patek Phillipe, sleek black and nude Louboutins, and a chic strand of pearls. Pair up your designer gear with every single work wear staple you own to give them a polished glamour. 

Play up your Patterns

Pick out a rich assortment of patterns that stand out and grab attention, such as plaid, gingham, stripes, polka dots, geometrics and others. Just be sure to pick out structured pieces, like sleek button downs, sheath dresses, pencil skirts, pant suits, blazers, and shift dresses that will give your curves a polished appeal. 

Bold Shoulders

Bold, strong and squared shoulders are always the best pick to effortlessly convey a confident, lady boss attitude. So, pick out some sharply structured blazers, strong cap sleeved pencil dresses and blouses, and always focus on the tailoring, because the sharper it is the better. Be sure to invest in a business casual jacket and cape that you can carry to evening soirees and luncheons. 

Own your Confidence

Last but most certainly not the least, ladies, a lady boss attitude is not much about clothes, but in fact, it is a state of a mind of a woman who is confidence and capable of feeling her own power radiating through her veins. You can only be a lady boss if you own up your confidence with a fierce boldness, and of course, a dark coat of red lipstick always works wonders!
