Some professions call for pant suits at the workplaces, and some call for ripped and faded jeans. But some are just different, which call for a very fashionably well put together look. And it can get tricky to strike a balance between looking stylish yet authoritative.

That’s why in this new business look I tried going for a look that commands power but also looks well-groomed.

Here are the things I kept in mind while creating this business look of a ‘power woman’ character-of-sorts for my look:

1. The power woman needs to create a strong impression, so her business look is bold, but at the same time she wants an unfussy outfit that requires the least maintenance and stays put all day long. So I chose a tailored dress in a classic style and simple cut. I chose a dark colored leopard print for a low maintenance look that exudes domination.

2. A professional woman has minimal prep-time, so the hair and nails are kept low maintenance too.

3. A woman on the go is always busy, so the accessories is kept minimal, without bling or layered jewelry. Just a matching set of pearls and bold sunglasses are used for a classy and quickbusiness look.

4. Makeup needs minimal drama for a professional woman, so as to create an appearance that looks crisp but not too distracting. So false lashes, excessive contouring and smokey eye, etc. are avoided. Just solid eye-shadow and lipstick to match the dress are used. Concealer and a well-prepped face gives a fresh look.
