Power dressing defined: 'A style of clothing intended to make wearers seem authoritative and competent, especially in professional settings'.
Oh but there is so much more to power dressing than apparent success in the work place! The right wardrobe can lead to (relative) success in all aspects of everyday life, merely by creating self-assurance and confidence. It's that simple!
The concept 'power dressing' was developed in 1975 by the book Dress for Success, about the effect of clothing on a person's success in business and personal life. A sequel, The Women's Dress For Success Book followed in 1997. Both best sellers were written by John T. Molloy and popularized the power dressing craze which continues today.
Power dressing can be interoperated as dressing to suit your body type, the occasion, and even the whether to create a comfortable outfit in which the wearer is able to exert confidence.
