Girl power – Power suit.

Girl power is taking over and we are doing it looking fierce and fabulous in all shades of power suits.

Take your average work suit and sprinkle a little rainbow dust on it for the ultimate power suit. This trend is all about varied fits and vibrant coloured suits.

There is literally a suit to suit everybody, even if it means pairing items from different shops.

I loved the colour of these cropped trouser so much that I hunted them down from Dorothy Perkins. I then paired it with a jacket from Zara for my personal take on power suits. This pairing cost me less than £80 and saved me approximately £40. The colours are not perfectly matching but it looks intentional and helps to break up the look.

What are your thoughts on this look. Personally I think its a double win. Even when you are not having such a great day, a power suit will have you winning.🤗

Just in case you need more inspiration. Check out this power suit from the Asos tall range

Anatomy of the 70’s fashion

The seventies is definitely before my time but I really enjoy experimenting with different looks and fashions from different era’s.

For the times when you cant afford a real SUEDE skirt, … a suedette one from New look will do just fine.  See, you couldn’t even tell the difference. 😀

I also really like the fit of this over the knee boots, not only does it got over my calf ( yes thats a common issue for me) but it also fits my tights.
