When we say the words "power suit" - what's the first thing that comes to mind? The 80s? Shoulder pads? The movie Wall Street? It was all of the above for us, so when we first saw power suits making a return to fashion runways, we were a little dubious. But, as we always do, we kept an open mind.
And now that we've seen this trend on a few of our favourite celebrities and style icons done oh-so-right, it’s definitely a trend we are getting on board with. Power suits make us feel like Wonder Women here at SWIISH HQ as they have the ahhh-mazing ability to make us feel courageous, fearless, unstoppable and smart.
Lately, we have been seeing them everywhere from the runway to the streets and on all the big names including Kendall Jenner, Hillary Clinton (the queen of the power suit), Rihanna, Brie Larson, Nicole Warne and Gigi Hadid to name a few.
The thing we love the most about power suits is that they are surprisingly versatile in how they can be styled. No longer are they an office only look à la Melanie Griffiths in Working Girl but they can be dressed down with sneakers and a tee or they still look fab dressed up with heels.
We’ve rounded up our fave looks for you so you can be the ultimate boss babe next time you step out in your power suit.
