Power dressing refers to “the practice of dressing in a style intended to show that one holds an important position.” But while the phrase typically connotes shoulder pads and ill-fitting skirt suits, there are several ways to dress like a powerful, modern woman. Power dressing is all about oozing confidence in the clothes you’re in.
Here is your no-fuss, no-stress guide to working your way to the top, stylishly and with elegance.
