The game changer: An ’80s power dress

Fashion

Jerry Hall set the bar high for mega-watt glamour back in the ’80s. Her secret weapon? The power dress. Its distinctive silhouette is what made it the pinnacle of scene-stealing style then, and the same is true now. A dramatic play on proportions, the bottom can be fluid or cut close to the body, while up top it’s all about exaggerated shoulders, puffed sleeves and daring necklines. Whether you opt for A.W.A.K.E.’s overblown polka-dots, Saint Laurent’s metallic mini interpretation or Johanna Ortiz’s scarlet showstopper, let the ’80s influence filter through the rest of your outfit and finish with leg-lengthening sheer tights, pointed boots and a pair of statement earrings.
