It may be pristine and pure, but it’s never boring – the simplest outfit can still make an impression with a classic white t-shirt.

A high heel appeals to women who like to make an entrance, striding into a room with head held high and a look of steely determination in their eyes; it’s no surprise that stilettos are the staple of strong, driven women such as Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian. If you’re a stiletto type, you know exactly what you want and how you can get it!



Channeling you femininity in a beautiful dress is a worthy source of power in its own right. It’s a power favoured by women like Taylor Swift and Alexa Chung – ladies who value the power of their womanhood.

If you’re not feeling well and need a protective shell to keep you insulated from the world, the rock and roll edge of a leather jacket creates your power piece of choice. Worn with skinny jeans, a black biker jacket projects a kind of untouchable cool that will make sure you’re always the hippest in the room. And if that isn’t a super power, then we don’t know what is.

    I love a good power dress! My all time favorite is a very simple long sleeve dress in black that can hit right above or the knees and can be rouched to be shorter for happy hour. Getting dressed is a no brainer with this dress which is nice during the morning rush.

    the pink tulle skirt is lovely; however i couldn’t wear that to court! the judge, the opposition and my clients would not take me seriously…..

    for me it is a black or grey shift dress or pinafore dress. you can dress it up with heels and blazer or dress it down with a cardigan and flats and still look professional.


    • Celina

      You’re right! I don’t think a lot of us will get away with a pink tule skirt to work ;)

  • Rita
