Ladies welcome back to world of power dressing, and can we just, say it is about time. These pastel power suits are Jackie O-La-La and oh so fitting of the current fashion climate. Pants suits make a statement, there is no denying that and you should never be afraid to rock one. perfect combination of strong and sexy, these pretty pastel power suits prove that feminity and sexuality do not always need to be expressed through tight skirts, crop tops and plunging necklines.
For a traditional look, rock a power suit with a frilly Victorian top, shirt. If you want to be a little more modern wear a matching blazer and trouser combination with a casual tee, bralette or minus undergarment entirely. Powder blue, baby pink and lavender are hero colours of the season.
According to European fashion week elites, glossy vinyl trousers are big news for autumn or winter. In fact, there has been an influx of vinyl and PVC clothing, but these patent pants are perhaps easiest to wear.
In place of jeans, these pants elevate any look from standard to street style level. Equal parts chic and cool, vinyl pants will release your inner fierceness and make you feel wonderful. You can also wear these with fur coats, mohair cardigans, knitwear, or puffy bombers with sneakers/ tennis shoes. Or throw on a pair with your favourite band tee, upset denim jacket and biker boots.

Throw on a pair with plaid or pastel pencil skirt and coloured shirt or knit for a cute preppy look. Or for something a little edgier, rock them with a set of overalls and a slogan tee. They also work well with long dresses in striped or floral patterns or plain colours, or with jeans, tees and denim/leather jackets. Put them on with a little black dress or a skirt and crop for a night out with the girls, or with a formal dress for a laid-back street style look. Essentially, you can also wear your white boots with anything.
