Spoiler alert: power suits are not just for the 9-5 bosses out there. If you’re like me and looking to amplify your wardrobe this year, go ahead and dance around in one of these bada$$ suits and you’re sure to feel that much more empowered.

One of my “style goals” for 2018 is to focus more on timeless pieces that I can accessorize with trendier items as seasons change. I’m totally guilty of just buying random things that I’ll wear once, maybe twice, and then stashing it in the back of my closet or donating within a few months of purchasing. Talk about a waste of money.
One of the styles I’m planning to buy more of are power suits. Now, you may or may not already know this but January marks one full year since quitting my day job and pursuing blogging full time. Last year, I still did a few contracting jobs to help supplement income but as of January 1, 2018 I am pretty stoked to share that I am officially a full time blogger. That’s it. Along with Adorn, this is my career. I’m not heading into an office or running to any “formal” business meetings but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to look like a total boss every now and then. Not to mention, suit separates can seriously go a long way. Long. Way.
Three Ways to Wear Your Suit Separates
- Together, obviously. Rock your power suit with a lace bralette and bold lip for date night or keep things simple with a classic blouse and pumps for a business meeting. You can also layer under a graphic tee shirt and booties for a more casual dinner #ootn.
- Dress down the bottoms. Keeping in theme with going casual with a tee, try layering on a vintage top with a jean or leather jacket and a pair of converses or adidas. This is my go to for weekend style when I just don’t feel like wearing jeans. When I buy suits or suit separates, I try to find materials that are flattering and also comfortable because I know I’ll be wearing them in more ways that one. You can also layer on a chunky knit sweater and booties for a winterized look.
- Dress up the blazer. This is probably how I wear my suits/seperates 95% of the time. Ever since LC (yes, I’m talkin The Hills LC) made blazers cool, I have always been a fan of pairing a blazer with casual and dressy looks. I love the idea of a lace cami or lace bralette paired with a looser fitting boyfriend blazer and ripped boyfriend jeans. For a more “formal” yet still casual look, you can try a more structured fit with a simple blouse or solid tee with darker wash jeans and pumps.
