Fall clothing styles bring back the power dressing of the ’80s from padded blazers with broad shoulders to oversize coats.
The oversize blazer is the piece of power dressing culture that was the centerpiece in the Working Girl movie in the ’80s: the widest the shoulders, the more powerful and bossy a woman appeared. Broad shoulders, well-tailoring, and fit were the necessary details.
Stick to a monochrome silhouette for a more polish and office-appropriate outfit and add balance wearing at least one fitted piece that can be either a body fit top, a pair of straight-leg pants, or a pencil skirt.
For a smart-casual style go with a size up and an elongated blazer that looks mostly like a dress. Pull it off with your favorite minis, shorts, or maxi dresses. Add a feminine touch by tying a belt around the blazer and finish the look with statement accessories.
Wearing an oversized blazer takes a certain attitude drawing attention to a woman’s personality.
