There is a new freedom to what strong, powerful women are wearing in the work place. Gone are the days when the “Power Suit” — the Armani and Tom Ford’s Gucci suits of the 90’s — was the epitome of a woman’s work uniform. This abandonment of “appropriate” dress codes gives way to a fresh, modern creativity around the office.
The Paris collections offered many distinct choices for millenial working girls’ wardrobe: flashy metallic suits; jackets with volume and plenty of structural detail; boots and flashy shoes replacing the everyday pump. Turtleneck knits, tops with zipper details and loose fitting tees replace the basic button shirt.
And this is as it should be, after all, it isn’t the clothes that convey authority, it’s one’s attitude and willingness to take risks.
