Power work clothes are simple style, tailored classics that are not frilly. You can build a work wardrobe of basic styles that say you are confident in who you are and that you are professional.
Tailored style clothing that flatters your figure type is the way to go. Solid colors that look good with your skintone and prints are good as long as the styles you wear are simple. For example Marissa Meyer, CEO, of Yahoo has been seen wearing simple print dresses that fall around her knees. Take cues from successful women in positions of power and your work environment. A colorful or print blouse worn with a tailored suit also looks great.
Women in power wear jackets. A quality blazer in a dark color that fits perfectly is a wise investment. Other key essentials for the executive diva are tailored pants and skirts that can be worn with different tops and jackets.
Leather pumps with heels that are comfortable and a quality leather handbag(s), belt(s) and silk scarves are must have accessories for every successful woman.
Necklines should not plunge and underwear should not be showing. No bra straps peaking out of clothing.
Be sure to keep your work clothes cleaned and well pressed. Find a good tailor to help you put your best foot forward.
