I’ve always been a fan of classic blazers (as seen here) and tailored trousers, and love this season’s power suit trend. So why not channel your inner boss babe and give this trend a try even if you don’t work in the corporate world? Take a note from Alexander McQueen’s and Wang’s Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collections and keep this trend casual by styling power pieces with these running shoes or these boots.
Clearly, I’ve embraced the power piece trend with the exception of adding a feminine twist to what some may argue is a masculine piece. My primary objective is to maintain an effortlessly chic vibe and remain comfortable when I style any look. The power piece blazer or trouser are items that can easily be styled in a way that achieves this goal.
I wore these high waisted checked trousers with a sheer mock neck tee, and duster coat. I styled my outfit with these leather mules which I’ve been lusting after for over a year. I’m happy that I made the decision to splurge on these classic flats since they’ve instantly become my go-to flats to wear this season. Mules and loafers are a staple in my closet, especially during the cooler months. I also added a vintage beret from a trip I took to Paris years ago, an embellished bucket bag, and a pair of hexagon sunnies to complete my look. Do you like hexagon framed sunglasses or the popular colored lens sunglass like these pink beauties I wore in the summer- I can’t get enough of either style!
BTW, I have a very fun trip coming up soon and I’m super pumped so stay tuned for more details. Here’s a hint, I am going on another exotic retreat like the trip I took to Bali earlier this year (see my Bali travel guide here). I want to order this top and this dress from REVOLVE for my trip. I can’t wait to reveal where I’m going!
What do you think of the resurrection of this 80s trend?
