If there is one ensemble that I am obsessing over currently, it’s the suit. The iconic women’s workwear piece of the 1980’s, has made a huge comeback this season – with a twist. Your rudimentary androgynous ensemble is no longer the boxy, oversized suit of the past. They are patently ladylike, while still being impeccably tailored. The power suit trend is already a favourite on the red carpet, it’s mixed and matched with other pieces and overall is the most versatile piece in your wardrobe – which is why, we are bringing to you 10 celebs who flawlessly rocked this trend.
Kareena Kapoor Khan looks smart and sophisticated in a tailored Ashish N Soni suit. She accessorised her suit with a no shirt look, suede pumps, and fresh makeup. Love at first sight!
If you are looking for an ultimate style icon that sways the perfect power look, it would have to be Cara Delevingne. The bold browed model teamed it with a plunging neckline and a pair of strappy-heeled shoes. Smokey eyes and oxblood lips finished her stunning look.
Get inspired by actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s take on the power suit. I like how she kept the look strictly tuxedo-inspired with sultry red lips and a sleek parted hairdo.
You shouldn’t be surprised to find Deepika Padukone flaunting her stylish look in one of these. She wore hers while casting her vote and teamed it with nude peep toes, a sheer white shirt, and vintage sunglasses.
Cut-out power suits are great for making a statement. Kalki Koechlin wore a peach coloured Nikhil Thampi suit at the London Film Festival and completely knocked the look out of the park.
Ever since Slumdog Millionaire, Freida Pinto has been a diva on the red carpet. The dusky beauty accessorised her Gucci suit with a striped clutch, black suede pumps, and a cute butterfly brooch. Doesn’t she look absolutely stunning in this fiery red number.
Gossip Girl starlet, Blake Lively is no doubt a head turner in this red suit by Miachel Kors. Paired with black strappy sandals and hoop earring, the actress looked every bit like a diva in this modernised version of the power suit.
Priyanka Chopra does not shy away from trying new trends and her take on a suit is nothing less than alluring. The actress teamed her matching power set with a graphic tee, statement earrings and a sleek ponytail for a strong masculine look. Did you notice the neon heels? I absolutely love, love, love!
Red power suits seem to be a favourite for celebrities. Alia Bhatt looked super chic in Dior, wearing a contrast printed body suit underneath with nude pumps as well. Minus the hem of her pants, I’d give her a 10/10!
If red isn’t your colour, you could always try pink instead. We love Sonakshi Sinha’s fun take on tailored dressing.
Love how these celebrities rocked the bold trend? Take a leaf out of their book and don a matching pair of trousers and jacket the next time you want to radiate some extra confidence. Which of these celebrities do you think wore their power suit the best?
