Your Search for a Power Suit Ends Here

We're big proponents of "power dressing"—whatever that means to you, whether it be a confidence-boosting LBD or a strong suit. If it's the latter, behold some serious inspiration by way of Lupita Nyong'o. The Black Panther actress recently stepped out in a printed two-piece combo that could own any room.

While the ever-classic black blazer-and-trousers look will always be de rigueur, we're loving more daring takes on the timeless silhouette. A fun print and pop of color elevate the expected—not to mention look great when worn as a pair, or styled independently with more casual separates like denim, tees, etc. Got an important event on the horizon? Consider re-creating Lupita's stylish suit look for yourself.
