Aquascutum Womens vintage Check Blazer
Okay, so let's get one thing straight: all women are feminine.  But only some of us are attracted to a fashion, an aesthetic, that is also feminine.  That's not right, and that's not wrong.   Admittedly, 'power dressing' is a strange term, and yet it truly does perfectly describe the goal at hand: to dress up in a way that says, 'I'm here, I'm confident and my intentions are powerful.'  So, with all that said, if you also feel as though you can't concentrate unless you're wearing heels, read on for a few tips on how to power dress while still staying true to your personal, feminine style!  Warning: don't read on if you don't have access to any kind of store right now, you will want to whip out your card details...

My absolute favourite element of power dressing; finding ways of toning down the iron fist with the velvet glove.  For this look, I've opted to add a gentle touch to the check blazer with a pussybow blouse and delicate gold accessories.  Another option includes teaming high waisted jeans with fierce heels, or a statement blouse and blazer combo as I've done for this look; the low-key vibe of the denim is perfect for dressing up in other ways!

Of course I'm going to recommend you wear heels because I'm a diehard stiletto addict.  However, it's all about what you feel more comfortable in; you're unlikely to stand tall and proud when you feel as though your knees are about to buckle underneath you, right?  Right.  Opt for towering block heels to get the best of both worlds: height and comfort

.... are your new best friends, along with any other shirt that offers something extra.  My advice?  Take a peek at Karen Millen for outfit-making shirts and blouses, or leaf through ASOS blouses for more affordable, frilly options

Oof, now this is a lesson I've only recently learnt.  Better late than never!  This vintage Aquascutum blazer has very quickly found its way into my heart (aka the special part of my wardrobe).  A well-fitting and striking blazer can do wonders for your confidence, and therefore your route to power dressing.  With the heritage trend going strong, there are plenty of blazers around right now, along with more flamboyant, embellished options appearing on the scene in the lead up to the festive season.  Have fun with it!

Psst!  Don't buy a blazer before figuring out which of your shirts/blouses will work with it!
