Throw away the stilettos and leave the suit at home; It’s time to embrace the new face of female entrepreneurship.
Fashion and style seem to be just as important in business as they are in everyday life. While some have always opted for classic business clothing, others use the opportunity to show their individuality or to make a statement with their original style. After all, first impressions are crucial and you want to look your best when interacting with clients or potential investors. With that in mind, let’s look at four of the latest fashion trends that are popular with women entrepreneurs for inspiration.
In recent years, power suits have made a comeback in the fashion world. Once reserved for board meetings and important presentations, these stylish ensembles can now be seen on catwalks and red carpets. However, it is not only fashionistas who rely on power suits. Many business women put on these sharp looks to make a positive impression and convey their confidence and competence. In addition, fashion-conscious entrepreneurs complement their looks with statement jewelery and luxurious handbags.
In a competitive market, it’s important to stand out from the crowd and a well-tailored power suit can do just that. Whether it’s a smart pant suit or a flowy skirt suit, a power suit makes a powerful statement of who you are and what you can achieve.
The tailored jumpsuit
A versatile option that any business woman would love. Entrepreneurs are always on the go, whether on their way to meetings or on their way to the airport. When every second counts and you want to look your best, a tailored jumpsuit is for you. Comfortable overalls have long been a fashion staple for business women, and a tailored suit adds style and modernity to the classic look.
The best thing about a jumpsuit is that you can simply dress it up with heels and a blazer for a meeting or session presentation, or pair it with sneakers and a denim jacket for a more casual look.
The oversized blazers
Oversized blazers are a retro fashion icon that’s gaining popularity among modern women. Its perfect balance of sophistication and style is what makes it so trendy. The exaggerated shoulders and relaxed, oversized fit are reminiscent of ’80s fashion, but thanks to the clean lines and classic cut, it doesn’t look too dated or dated. The best way to style this blazer is with a fitted bralette and high-waisted jeans or a fitted dress. You can also experiment with layering it over a turtleneck for a dressier look.
The key to this look is in the details. Make sure your blazer fits well to look sharp and choose a pair of comfortable and stylish pumps. When it comes to jewellery, less is more. A simple pair of stud earrings or a delicate necklace is enough to complete the look. Go for a natural look when it comes to makeup. Finally, pull your hair back into a sleek updo or low ponytail to complete the ensemble.
The Little Black Dress (LBD)
The little black dress has been a fashion staple for decades, but its acceptance among business women is relatively recent. In the early days of the LBD, it was considered an elegant and stylish alternative to the more formal dresses worn by celebrities. But the LBD only came into its own in the 1960s. Audrey Hepburn’s iconic style in Breakfast at Tiffany’s helped popularize the garment among fashion-conscious young women. In the years since, the LBD has become the uniform of choice for many of history’s most famous women, from Jackie Kennedy to Queen Bey.
Today, the little black dress is a timeless piece of clothing for fashion-conscious business women who want to make a remarkable impression. Whether with a simple case or an embroidered mini, the little black dress always shows self-confidence and strength. With so many fashion options to choose from, from a party dress to an elegant office ensemble, it’s easy to see why the little black dress is here to stay.
No matter your style, there is definitely something on this list that will work for you and make you feel like the CEO of your own life. When thinking about what to wear, it is also important to follow your mood and not be limited by what is expected of you. After all, you are the one wearing the clothes, but not the other way around!
