OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: POWER MOVE

By Jesse L. Brooks

 

This week we are taking on a fashion classic; the power suit! Which is being given a spring/summer revamp.

Shorts style suits are not only growing in popularity, but they offer the perfect mix of professionalism and casual chic style.

Since we are in the spring season, we wanted to go for a softer shade and for us, that meant lovely lavender. In honor of the late Gianni Versace's fashion legacy, Donatella reworked pieces from the label's archives for Spring '18. Reminiscent of the short suits first seen in the Spring '95 collection, this structured crepe blazer has strong squared shoulders and a nipped in waist to create an hourglass silhouette. The gold button fastenings depict the designer's iconic Medusa head. To complete our suited look, we paired up the jacket with the matching silk-crepe shorts. For layering purposes, we added our favorite tried and true Tibi camisole. Season after season, the brand's signature racer back cami is meticulously crafted for the perfect fit; this time using a versatile viscose jersey knit that can be worn with a variety of looks. For a little flirty fun, we played up our shoes that will have heads turning. The signature butterfly wings on Sophia Webster's 'Chiara' sandals are made from metallic and matte leather, set on a slim heel and detailed with a glittered strap. The soft pastel color palette not only complements our suit, but also offers a sweet hint of whimsy to our feet. Our bag choice is all about embracing another classic. Chanel's quilted Caviar leather Maxi Double Flap bag with silver-tone hardware, single shoulder strap with chain-link and leather accents comes in a vibrant shade of turquoise, which helps bring out the pops of color in the covet worthy heels. For beauty, a hint of opalescence to our cheeks were added . Stila's Heaven's Hue Highlighter is a unique, radiance enhancing highlighter that is gossamer-light and melts into the skin for a barely there feel. In this look you can head straight from the office to out on the town without having to worry about changing your outfit. Now that's what we call an ultimate 'Power Move'!
