International Women's Day was almost a month ago, but powerful women never stop inspiring each other.
And before we get out there and kick ass, there is no harm in throwing on the perfect power suit.
Tailoring is power.
A woman in a suit is the embodiment of authority, of control, of strength, and simultaneously a confirmation of all that is chic. This year, we see so many runway styles that played with extreme proportions, patterns, and volumes, which we can all agree are impactful but not very wearable.
So I thought I'd round-up of the best pantsuits to own this Spring to save you some trouble (You're welcome) ;)
The Comeback Classic
Double breasted wool blazer with a twist from Balmain - think padded shoulders, impeccable tailoring, and lion-embossed gold-tone metal buttons. Or you can opt for a blazer without buttons from Tibi for an effortless look.
These trousers from Brunello Cucinelli are cropped and perfect to match any black blazer. Yep, sorry, no jeans.
On me: Helmut Lang - I love the slim but straight cut and the paneling/pocket details that give it a 'boyfriend' feeling.
Blazé Milano's white blazers are endlessly elegant and ideal for year-round styling, complete the look with Jil Sander C-Baldo wide-leg.
Let bold colors and the tailoring speak for themselves.
Max Mara throws out spring colours like no other, and Oscar de la Renta's green suit is flattering for all ages. Though they would be more daytime friendly when paired with a white shell top.
Baby/pastel pink is another popular and easy-to-wear choice - Altuzzara's fitted waist take totally won me over.
Slightly tuned up designs from Zimmerman and Gucci could work for those of you who are a little more adventurous.
