Sure, a 9 to 5 blazer will do the job just as well, but these power suits make a statement even if you decide to wear them anywhere other than your workplace. Also, the best part about them is that you can opt for any of the three different styles which translates in more options than ever before. Note that some have straight legs, others are flare or wide leg. But, let’s delve in some of the options that high street brands have to offer.

First style: One color suits

Chances are that you may already own a black suit – perfect choice all year round. Although, a one color suit especially in a pastel hue, is the easiest styling option during spring. These type of women suits are fuss-free, elegant and suitable from dawn till dusk. Style them pretty with trainers for a casual vibe or dress them up with some heels for an easy going out outfit.

Check suits

Checks and plaids are patterns that date way before suits came around. Yet, there is something irresistible about check suits. And it has to do with the color combination.

Flower print suits

Flower prints are the newest entry to women’s power suits, that will have your eyes rolling. In a good sense. These are best suited for the boldest of us. Opt for oversized flower prints for that modern edge look in a bold, bright saturated hue. Mandarin red (trending big nowadays) or Pantone’s classic blue are the perfect color candidates. Timeless but fresh!
