Yes, You Can …
Executive Style Means Trouser Suits Too.
Today’s Business Capsule Wardrobe Features A Trouser Suit That Adds Executive Style.
As a Personal Stylist for business women, I was recently asked my opinion on Hillary Clinton’s trouser suits.
Hillary has certainly embraced executive style, understanding that looking polished belongs to ‘looking like a leader’.
A trouser suit can indeed look statesmanlike – it’s powerful executive dressing.
For Hillary Clinton, her Go-To dress is, in fact, a Trouser Suit.
In fact Hillary has made her trouser suits her Signature Style.
Looking fabulous, feeling comfortable and radiating confidence, Hillary can focus on the job in hand – which is winning the Presidential election.
For busy working women, wearing a trouser suit is a practical and attractive alternative to a dress, offering both Function and Form. (no worrying about a rising hem length when you sit down or a dress neckline being too revealing).
It’s very easy for women to wear trousers well and look smart, strong and stunning.
CWC style tip: it’s all about fabric quality and the shape of the jacket and the trouser – in order to balance and perfectly compliment your figure.
Below are my top 5 tips for Executive Style and wearing a trouser suit well
- You can look streamlined and elegantly chic.
- You can cover up and skim over the parts of you that you dislike.
- You can use the collar, shape and detailing of the jacket to focus attention on your face/top half.
- Trouser suits are a viable option for business day or evening wear.
- You can wear a trouser suit with flats or heels for the evening.
CWC style tip: a small heel adds a touch of femininity, raises your butt and lengthens the leg too.
For a business style, I recommend a trouser suit in a neutral colour from ivory to navy, dependent on the time of year and your own colouring.
Yes you can wear a stronger colour but avoid harsh, shouty, ‘look-at-me’ colours.
You want to ‘look the part’ but not detract from what you are saying to your audience.
CWC style tip: colour is important but it’s the shape and length of the jacket that is key to the success of your overall look.
If you like Trouser suits, they are no-brainers for executive style and today’s business capsule wardrobe.
