Well, I’d like to think so! Or “like a minion;” either way, there’s no harm in dressing like a boss, and a cool one at that. Last week The Wall Street Journal published the article “Elements of Boss Style,” that talks about the death of the power suit, and how women of all high positions should feel confident using bright color, prints, and bold accessories.
I totally agree that you can be both stylish and powerful, however I’d like to also believe that being chic and casual can work too. I’ve taken elements from this article, such as if you go statement with your jewelry, only do it with one piece, and created a “casual Friday” look, sans traditional jeans, that is still office and meeting-appropriate, yet comfy. A lightweight sweater, accented with a scarf and retro over-sized earrings, along with fitted black denim and a pop of color punch with bright loafers.
