3 Styling Tips To The Power Look | Clozette

They say that self-confidence is innate, and we can't agree more. But it never hurts to equip ourselves with an empowering outfit that shows off our unshakable poise, don't you think?


In conjunction with International Women's Day – where we honour and celebrate female empowerment – we share three easy tweaks and tricks in your wardrobe that will add the 'pow' in your power look. Watch the video, then read on to catch the looks, as worn by Clozette ambassador Laveena Bhansali, up close.

Tip 1: Streamline your silhouette

Streamlining your silhouette doesn't have to mean wearing body-hugging clothes. Look out for tailored pieces that feature a clean cut for a polished finish.


Tip 2: (Jump)suit up

Forget that predictable dress and pick this one out instead – say hello to our new favourite onesie: the jumpsuit. Layer on with an inner blouse or throw over a blazer for instant chic factor.

Tip 3: White out

Pulling off an entirely white ensemble can be daunting (coffee spills, anyone?), but isn't this what empowerment is about? Confidence is key, ladies, and going all-white could just be what you need to perk you up and give you that sartorial boost to power you through the day.

Whether you like her or not, there's no denying that Rihanna is a force to be reckoned with. Selling over millions of copies of her albums worldwide, the Barbadian singer has already become a household name. Aside from her musicianship, however, the singer has also made a mark in philanthropy. The singer was recently named Harvard University's Humanitarian of the Year.


There's no stopping Rihanna in excelling in anything she ventures into. The singer has already launched her clothing line in collaboration with Puma, and her long-awaited beauty line called Fenty Beauty is also in the works.


She's a busy girl, but she always looks effortlessly cool. How does she do it? Here are few pointers we took note of from her looks.


--------------------------


Own that colour




It doesn't matter if you're a fan of nudes or you like your lipsticks bold and brightly hued. Rock it! Nothing gives off a cool vibe more than confidence. So wear whatever colour you please, and own it.

Don't be afraid of texture



A cool girl is a risk-taker, so don't just sit on the fence. Get out of your comfort zone and try something that seemingly won't work. A good way to practice this is by adding more texture to your outfits. Textures transform you from being a plain jane to a bad gal.

--------------------------


Go classic



Classics will never die — and for good reason. They're effortlessly chic and never go out of style. Pair your classics together and you're sure to impress.


Cool comfort



Taking risks in the name of fashion is admirable, but it's also endearing when icons and influencers don't shy away from comfort. It is the person underneath the clothes who pulls off the look, after all. Donning basics is not a crime, especially if they're comfy.

So, here we are. It's a new month, folks. But we'll refrain from poring over how time flies by so fast. Instead, we'll pay closer attention to what's been happening.
