Get a Look at What Power Dressing Is Like in 2018

Power dressing is the takeaway from the Max Mara show in Milan, and women of the ’80s are in full focus—hence the spotlight on shoulder pads and powerful prints like pinstripes and plaid. But instead of living within the constructs of corporate guidelines or conservative attire, this is another kind of power dressing, a new attitude where slick leather and leopard prints are just as welcome as pencil skirts and tailored blazers. So, instead of a buttoned-up version of power dressing like we saw in previous decades, there’s an infusion of unabashed glamour and personal style that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
