Power dressing is more "futuristic"

01 Sep
Power dressing has returned with a more "futuristic feel", it has been suggested.

According to fashion market editor at Marie Claire Nicole Smallwood, the 80s trend has been updated and given a modern take for autumn of this year.

Ms Smallwood advised those wanting to capitalise on the trend to seek out an oversized jacket, but warned that its shoulders must not be too big.

"It's all about big shoulders this season, but not if the big shoulders are sticking up and outwards and really just don't fit you whatsoever," she remarked.

Adding shoulder padding to existing items of clothing is another way of achieving the power dressing look, the fashion expert said, adding that this can be done with a biker jacket, which could be accessorised with a sequin dress.

The power dressing trend has been brought back into fashion for autumn by many big-name designers, with Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Donna Karan showing off the trend earlier in the year.ADNFCR-2176-ID-19339277-ADNFCR
