A Power Suit With A Splash of Orange



Need to look professional and ready to conquer the world? Woke up late on a Monday morning and don't have time to put together an outfit? Reach for a classic pantsuit and add a lovely silk scarf. This look has been seen on powerful women from around the globe, including Hilary Clinton, Angela Merkel and Christine Lagarde. Here I've started with a basic navy pantsuit, then added an orange silk scarf and amber drop earrings for some color. The key to dressing this look up or down is the scarf. For a professional power look, choose a silk scarf in a bold color. To tone the suit down or make it more casual, choose a cotton or poly-blend scarf in a softer shade. You don't need much jewelry with this look because you want to keep the focus on the scarf, so I've just added small drop earrings in a complementary shade of orange.


Suit: I had this suit made in Hong Kong, but for US readers here are similar jacket and pants, and here are jacket and pants for UK readers.
Scarf: The scarf was a gift, but similar here for US readers and here for UK readers.
Earrings: The earrings were purchased at a market in Krakow, Poland, but similar can be found here for US readers and here for UK readers.
