International Women's Day is here and we couldn't be more excited! The day aims to help nations, worldwide, eliminate discrimination against women. It also focuses on helping women gain full and equal participation in global development. At Little Black Dress we celebrate the unstoppable woman, with a core belief of female empowerment. Hence why this day is very special to us. To celebrate this incredible day of women banding together, we have put together a style guide on power dressing. Power pieces are garments which ooze strength. In addition, they give the wearer an incredible boost of confidence to help her tackle the day. Ensuring we stay on trend to help you keep on track, each look is inspired by this years trends straight from the catwalk. However, these looks are luxury looks for less. Due to, our understanding that keeping track of your purse strings is a sign of a woman in control! Here are our top power pieces to help you celebrate the unstoppable female within.   [caption id="attachment_99605" align="aligncenter" width="800"] The Moschino Spring\Summer 2019 collection featured powerhouse looks in unique monochromatic patterns.

Work Wear

Nothing makes us prouder than seeing a woman shaking things up in her workplace. We champion women who inspire and takes her career by storm. We think our Paper Dolls Santiago Black Check Dress is the perfect power piece for the office. The block colour top keeps the dress appropriate and conservative. In contrast, the checked print skirt and fitted silhouette gives a girl boss vibe. All of which is achieved whilst still remaining office appropriate. Moreover, the Moschino Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2019 collection revealed how monochromatic pieces are trendy power looks this year. We recommend to glam up with the Daniel Sandler Luxury Lip Gloss in Skinny Dip. This pink-nude gloss has a luxe shimmer that works great with the dress for after-work cocktails or a special dinner date.   [caption id="attachment_99610" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Florals conquered the 2019 runway and showed us how they can be worn for female empowerment.

Floral jumpsuits sprouted up and covered the catwalk for 2019. We loved seeing delicate, feminine prints being used in strong, powerful designs. Furthermore, the Alexander McQueen Spring 2019 collection dominated the floral sector. Featuring beautiful poppy prints contrasting with dark accents to result in a harmonious battle of dark and light. To achieve the same powerful look, we suggest this Paper Dolls Beauford Rose Floral Cullotte Jumpsuit. It is perfect for everyday wear. Featuring a beautiful floral print that will have you standing out from the crowd. In addition, making a strong statement that is right on trend for Spring/Summer. According to fashion experts, bold looks are widely known as unfailing power attire. For this reason, we highly recommend applying the Daniel Sandler Luxury Matte Lipstick in Gigi. This head-turning, fuchsia pink lip is perfect to add a pop of colour.

Special Occasion

Part of International Women's day is celebrating your womanhood. Additionally, your beautiful body. We think the Revie For Little Black Dress Angelina Dress in Blush is the perfect dress to show off your figure. A fitted elegant dress is a great power piece. We also recommend applying the CODE Beautiful SSL Lip Liner to match the dress for a pretty pink look. To feel even better, we suggest spritzing the Paco Rabanne Olympéa fragrance. This power look is highly sophisticated. For this reason, we think it would be ideal for a wedding or special occasion.

Going Out in Style

Mixing traditionally masculine pieces with feminine shapes has been a growing fashion trend. Hence why tuxedos and tailored suit styles were spotted all over the 2019 catwalk. The blazer dress is one of the more popular designs and we love how it oozes power but still achieves a refined sense of femininty. Our Club L London White Wrap Over Blazer Asym Dress is a beautiful option to try out this power piece. The asymmetrical shape creates a unique twist and the gold button gives a luxurious look. To elevate this power piece even further, we recommend accessorising with the Johnny Loves Rosie Rose Gold Ear Cuffs. Featuring delicate pearls and crystals, these earrings will add a lavish finish to this empowering outfit. Perfect for a night out with the girls.

Happy International Women's day

International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action. Whilst it is important to unify with other women in your life. At Little Black Dress, we also think it is important to celebrate yourself. Therefore, incorporating a few power pieces in to your wardrobe gives you an extra boost of female empowerment. If this style guide wasn't quite tickling your fancy. It is worth noting that purple is the colour for symbolising women, internationally. We have a wide range of purple dresses if you desire to celebrate this day with the official colour instead.
