Power Suit Styling Ideas
The main thing to remember about a power suit is that it is mostly a formal outfit. Yes, you can make it casual by either wearing just a blazer with shorts or jeans but if you wear a blazer with formal pants then it will count as a formal outfit. So what you will need to keep in mind is that such suits look best with heels, most of the time. Yes, you can wear cool sneakers because these days we have tons of options to choose from but remember, heels would always be the best option. Secondly, you need to choose carefully what you wear under your blazer because that is what will complete your outfit and decide its final look. If you choose a bralette it will look sexy but if you wear a shirt or tank top then it will be more office-appropriate. It is your choice, there are tons of choices for you. Wear whichever suit you like best!
