The Power Jacket

Here, the power jacket comes into play as does the professional, sophisticated and powerful trend. It's a perfectly convenient situation!


A power jacket can add a much-needed boost of confidence and the image of power (ironically) to a winter blues ensemble. Think double-breasted teamed with a longer length and plunging neckline for the office or board room. For a more casual approach, opt for a starched collar, nipped in waist, and perhaps a fun peplum bottom for a trendy modern take on a classic favourite. Shoulder pads, flared cuffs and boxy cuts are also making a powerful return from the 70's.

Brighten up pieces with splashes of colour in tie-die, geometric prints and professional pin stripes. Quirky flamingo and peacock emblems made a debut on the runway if you're that way inclined. Add some sequined bling, clever play with material and exciting patterns and cuts for the ultimately individual ensemble.

Nothing says power like a fabulous jacket and this season has your options covered! Don't miss the ultimate excuse to experience a power high.
