Embrace the Power

Just because we girls know who really runs the world doesn’t mean we can’t dress like our suited counterparts. Nods to menswear abound on the fashion scene, from a simple tuxedo stripe detail or hint of ‘masculine’ fabric to a full-blown suit. Find what inspires you, and don’t be afraid to wear the pants.
