There’s something about a well-tailored suit that asserts power and what asserts even more power is confidence in a print suit. How to wear a print power suit all depends on the occasion but the one constant is confidence. A true power suit should consist of sharp lines, wide shoulders and be structured.
Although a skirt suit can also be striking, there is something quite commanding about a trouser suit on a lady. Of course, what differentiates the woman’s power suit from the men’s, is the fit, cut and jacket lengths. But it is also a daring option to don a menswear suit. You could even add a slim belt over the blazer for a feminine and flattering touch.
PICKING THE RIGHT POWER SUIT COMBINATION
The combination of a long length blazer and cropped trousers is not only chic and flattering but contemporary too. In the inspiration of Coco Chanel, a cropped jacket and knee length skirt provides a feminine but powerful image for a lady also.
Once you’ve got your favourite fit and cut sorted, you’ll be ready to move on to colours and print. Having a classic cut neutral coloured suit as a wardrobe staple is always recommend first. Your neutral selections will then allow you to be ready for any occasion like what to wear to a job interview. Next, you can play around with prints and bolder colours.
THE VOLUME OF YOUR PRINT
For this print power look, a monochrome plaid trouser suit with yellow gold flower print embroidery all over is the perfect pick. Even if you love a good all black outfit, this is definitely fabulous spring inspiration. The cut of the jacket is not only structured and well-tailored, but it is flattering worn open, closed or belted as styled. The trousers are also perfectly cropped and well fitted.
The print of the suit is subtle enough to wear to various events but just loud enough to make a statement. Whether your print choice is subtle or loud, be sure to wear it like a boss, because that’s the whole point of a power suit.
