I know I feel my most powerful and confident self when I’m comfortable. That means go with whatever go-to outfits or pieces you have that make you feel like the best version of yourself.

Bold prints or bright colors will always pop. I feel super confident in high-pressure situations when I’m empowered by a creative color because it instantly displays authority while showcasing your sense of style.
Feminine Meets Traditional
If I’m ever heading to an event or speaking, I love wearing some sort of form fitting top or pants, then mixing it with an oversized trench and heels. I’m all about mixing sexy and conservative looks to feel feminine and powerful.
Power styling can also be inherently inspiring. Wearing pieces that will help motivate you to get work done or evoke positive energy. I love wearing suits just for this reason!
