Power Dressing for Ladies in Second Life - Lacy Muircastle reporting

I was browsing through my flickr when up popped a picture posted by none other that the doyenne of fashion herself Mimi Juneau of Mimi's Choice.  The pic is of a stunning suit by Swaffette Firefly of SF Designs and is just one of her latest offerings.  This prompted me to write this piece on power dressing for the ladies of SL.

I mean really, how could I not, You all should know just how hot you too could look ....

Power dressing need not leave you looking like a 1980s throwback. There are plenty of ways to dress like a powerful sexy modern woman without having to resort to shoulder pads and ill-fitting suit sets. Power dressing is all about exuding confidence in the clothes you’re in, looking sexy at the same time.

Adding a blazer to your outfit is one of the easiest tips for modern power dressing. A well fitted blazer will instantly smarten up your outfit. For a corporate look team a tailored blazer with cigarette pants and patent pumps. Right now the trend is for matching suit sets which is lucky for us as it just screams power dressing. A classic tip for power dressing is to wear well fitting, tailored clothing.

You don’t have to stick to fitted, tailored clothes all the time. Another way to work some power dressing magic into your wardrobe is with luxurious textures. Textures like silk and cashmere are perfect for modern power dressing.

When you’re choosing jewellery for your outfit, keep it classy and elegant. You want pieces that are stylish but not too trend-based or overpowering. Keep jewellery simple and avoid anything too costume-y. Chunky man-style watches are a stylish option if you want a bolder piece of jewellery that is still fairly classic.

Black and grey colours are pretty standard for power dressing, but experiment with colour where you can. Right now we’re seeing a lot of designers embracing boldly coloured matching suit sets. If the occasion allows for it, try wearing a brightly coloured outfit. Red, yellow, orange, blue – take your pick! Alternatively, try adding some colour in the form of accessories like your shoes or a bag.  Either way, a strong dose of colour will give off powerful vibes.

Shoes can say a lot about a person. When it comes to power dressing, a pair of heels is an instant confidence booster. In most cases, you can’t go wrong with a basic black pair of pumps. Choose ones in a patent finish with a more pointed toe for a bit of extra oomph. If you’re in a more creative setting, experiment with different shoe styles that best fit your personality.

When it comes to modern power dressing, you’ve got to wear what you love.  Being confident in your looks is a major part of oozing confidence and power. It’s all about owning your outfit and your look.
