Modern power dressing 'needs old-school influences'
Some styles never change for power dressing, such as through the use of legwear such as tights, so young fashionistas may want to raid the wardrobes of their mothers to get the best things available to them.

Power dressing in the modern day is all about embracing styles of old, which could save fashionistas around the world a little bit of money and allow them to invest in accessories instead.

Nicole Smallwood, a fashion market editor at Marie Claire, explained that jackets are all the rage again, whether they're oversized, boyfriend-esque or ones which look fitter for a biker than anyone else.

Further focus should be placed on big shoulders, she continued, while other vintage clothes may also be favoured to wear underneath.

Ms Smallwood highlighted the need for hosiery in the mix as well, adding: "It's not so much acid rave this time, it's more disco Studio 54, so leave the legwarmers this time and maybe add an opaque tight instead."

Marie Claire is now a worldwide icon which publishes its work in 29 countries, giving fashion and beauty coverage that embraces anything between catwalk and high street.
