The Seductive Power of Pantsuits
Last year, during the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton donned a lot of pantsuits to represent herself as an equal in a male-dominated world of politics. Although the pantsuit may seem conservative to some, it can be used as a power outfit for work and board meetings. Here are some choices that capture the alluringly assertive style.
Armani Collezioni Pantsuit in Cady
The acetate and silk blend gives this number a slight glossy shimmer on the surface. Its revealing neckline and double breasted jacket and straight cut trousers will make you look sleek. For a more corporate appeal, wear a collared blouse underneath.
Hugo Boss Blazer in New-Wool Blend ‘Afrona’ & Slim Fit Trousers ‘Tiluna’
This dark blue combination can be matched with a simple sleeveless top or a long sleeved shirt. Its skinny lapel creates a longer silhouette for that seamless transition from the office to a party.
Brooks Brothers Plaid Wool-Linen Jacket and High-Waisted Pants
Go classic with the subtle patterns and light brown tone of this pantsuit. For added versatility, this four pocket and three-horn-button jacket looks best with a simple white tank top or t-shirt. The whole ensemble can even be paired with heels or open-toe sandals.
Gucci Silk Wool Jacket & Ankle Pants
This jacket has a couple of unique features like the pretty pink silk lining, top stitch detailing along the edges and their signature GG brass pearl button. Ruffle details on the front pockets as well as the sleeves and trouser cuffs give it a touch of playful sophistication.
Chanel Denim Pink Jacket & Cotton Canvas Pants
Strutting around in this Chanel smart casual outfit will definitely turn heads. The mixture of pink and black stripes on ecru may be tricky to match, so opt for their poplin grey and black blouse, and put on their linen Guipure belt for added pizzazz.
