Theory’s Power Of Persuasion

It’s an interesting correlation to be in our current political climate where the women’s empowerment movement is getting louder and louder and power suiting has made a triumphant return to fall runways. But this is not the power suits of the ’80s, no Working Girl here. Designers across the board are redefining the meaning of the suit with fresh takes on silhouette, fabrication and color. Known for their sophisticated workwear, Theory is at the forefront of the suit trend. Creative Director of Womenswear Lisa Kulson continues to reinvent Theory classics in a modern way.

“For women today, we gave the look two significant updates. First, there’s the Power Jacket—my favorite piece—which has a strong shoulder, a double-breasted closure and a more pronounced waist,” Kulson shares.

A double-breasted jacket is the perfect way to add a commanding element to your work ensemble without losing a feminine silhouette. And for those daring boardroom bosses, Theory offers an edgier take on the classic suit with its Off-The-Shoulder Jacket and High-Waist Legging. Cut from technical fabrics, this suit is a fresh take that easily moves from a creative office environment to after-work cocktails. Loving a classic cut but wanting an update? Find it with color or texture in Theory’s burgundy or velvet options.Velvet Power Jacket in Electric Pink, Silk Combo Turtleneck Shirt in Electric Pink , Stretch Velvet Tux Pant in Electric Pink, Whitney Bag in Brick Red Leather

As our work lives and personal lives continue to merge, so should your wardrobe. One of the best things about owning a perfect suit is the ability to have endless options. When you are off the clock, pair your double-breasted jacket with some fun loafers and boyfriend jeans or mix your suit trousers with a sexy heel and a cropped knit for an evening out. So don’t be afraid to “work” it out!
