Making a Case for the Power Suit


Bottega Veneta Pouch

Have you noticed all the badass women on Instagram wearing amazing power suits lately? I’ve taken notice, which is why I had to follow suit (pun intended lol). To say I’m in love with the power suit is an understatement. I think I love it more than a good slip dress, which is saying something. Let me tell you why I’m so obsessed…

The Power Suit

To me, the power suit is a symbol of strength. It means that you’re there to do business, you’re strong and you look really good doing it. I also love that it’s a classic outfit. Even though it is technically a trend right now, a good power suit will never go out of style.

For my power suit, I went with an all-black look and added a bright Bottega pouch for a pop of color. I love this combination but I also love all the brightly colored power suits I’ve been seeing. You can make a really great monochromatic look out them. I would love to try this pink look or this velvet purple option from the new Ralph Lauren x Friends (yes, the TV show!) collection that just launched at Bloomingdale’s.

As for the details of my look, I wore this vest with a lacy black bra that’s showing just a little bit at the deep v. It shows how you can wear a suit to the office (with a blouse of course) and then repurpose it for date night or girls’ night out. The jacket and pants are both by Nili Lotan, which I linked below along with tons of other fits and colors at various price points. Last but certainly not least, the shoes are a classic pair of black pumps that you can’t go wrong investing in.

So, tell me, are you here for the power suit?
