Suits, the go-to choice for power dressing, is surely having a moment with the rising #MeToo feminist movement. While FW18 showcased suits as armour with unconventional draping and tweed, SS19 has brought us the classic through a meeting of the feminine and masculine. Boardroom couture was paired with summery dresses on the runway, with collections showcasing angular lines in bright colours and soft styling.
With everyone from edgy Pyer Moss to historic Chanel showcasing trendy silhouettes with quirky styling choices, you can now move with ease from the boardroom to a cocktail with our picks below:
Love it or hate it, Hedi Slimane’s debut collection at Celine was certainly not to be missed. The indisputable hit of the collection - the menswear line with Slimane’s signature cuts - featured his love for the androgynous. Accessorise the unisex collection with boots or sunglasses to lift an all-black ensemble.
Chanel reimagined their legendary tweed pattern for current times with suiting that was chic enough to weather winter and its many moods. Dress it with a t-shirt underneath to bring the formality down a notch.
Clare Waight Keller crafted fierce tuxedo dresses for Givenchy, with crisp lines that ensure you are ready to make the best deal of your career. Dress these structured silhouettes up with peep toes and pantyhose or boots for a fashionable edge. Our favourites were in the palette of mustard and blue.
Louis Vuitton personalised their suits with graphic prints in neon. With bright colours the rage, all you need are these fantastic colour-blocked lapels to amplify your game.
Whether you go bright, pastel or keep it traditional, power dressing has never been this much fun!
