Today I’m thrilled to kick off the Fall/Winter edition of my Trend Memo series!  For the next two weeks, I’ll be taking you through the top ten fashion trends to know for fall and winter, with tips on how to incorporate each trend into your work wardrobe, your play wardrobe and everything in between.  I’m excited to kick things off today with one of my very favorite trends of the season—power dressing!

In case this magenta pants suit didn’t make it clear, power dressing this season is all about being BOLD.  The trend isn’t about your run-of-the-mill corporate attire, but instead, it’s about reinventing traditional suiting with bold hues and fashion-forward detailing. We’re talking bright colors, feminine prints, deconstruction of traditional silhouettes, and even the incorporation of other trendy elements like fur and velvet.  Between the bright color, bold geometric buttons and dramatic split cuffs of my suit today, you can see the many ways in which designers are not just creatively re-thinking office attire this season but artfully addressing what it means to be a powerful woman today.

It’s important to note that this season, power dressing isn’t only for work.  In fact, just yesterday I wore this blazer with jean shorts for Sunday brunch with girlfriends.  Similarly, a sleek black blazer with gold buttons (like this beauty) is a great staple piece to have on hand for fall nights when you’re headed to dinner or drinks and need something to layer over a little black dress.  But whether you’re a workaholic or a lady of leisure, check out my favorite finds below for sporting this trend in or out of the office…
