#Powerwoman: Dressing to Make an Impression in the Workplace

The workplace is one of the best places to make your style shine through. It’s a place you go to almost every day and has an abundance of people to show off your style to.

Your choice of clothing tells a lot about who you are, and the workplace is no different. You can come off as a Miranda Priestly-type ice woman or a more approachable team member if you wish. The key is in how you dress and carry yourself. If you’re looking to dress like the former, we’ve got you covered.

There are a number of pieces that just scream power, and if you’d like to pass that message across, consider some of these ideas.


  • Power Sleeves: In this case, you’ll need to draw some inspiration from Cruella De Ville. Power sleeves refer to sleeves that are deliberately very wide and are often embellished. These sleeves have an air of power and mystery to them, particularly because they are so very in-your-face. With time, we’ve come to associate these sleeves with power, thanks to icons like Cruella De Ville and Maleficent.

  • Peplum Dresses: Peplum dresses are a product of vintage styles being reborn and remade for the 21st century. They scream class and depending on what is used on the waistline, can be anything from preppy to seriously sophisticated. For maximum effect, choose a dress that has a very structured design on its waistline.


  • Bold detailing: What is it about bold details? Perhaps it is the way they seem to say ‘I am here. Look at me’ and demand your undivided attention. Either way, bold detailing is one of the best ways to express fearless style. This could be a large ribbon, bow, pin and so on. Walking into the office wearing one on a Monday morning, everyone will know that you didn’t come to play.



  • Structured Dresses: Considering that you’re dressing for a work environment, you might want to exude seriousness as well as style, essentially letting people know that you came to do business as well as slay. One of the best outfits for this is structured dresses. These sorts of dresses are beautiful but have an air of untouchability to them. Seeing a dress like this on someone, you’d want to admire but wouldn’t want to touch or stare for too long.

If you’re looking to make a statement or cause a stir at the office, consider investing in a few power pieces to let your inner Oprah Winfrey shine through.
