"I think, with suits and clothes, if you keep them long enough, 

they all come back in fashion. " Rod Stewart

Indeed! With my first real salary when I was still in college, first thing I got was a made to measure tailored suit. For me, having perfectly tailored suit was the second most important rule of business I learned attending business school, right after rule #1 which was: never do business with friends and family. Now, 10 years later, with a much more professional experience in big fashion and now consumer goods multinational companies in Connecticut, New York, Zagreb and Budapest I know from practice that both of these rules hold true.

”The clothes and colors we wear have a real impact on the way we feel. 

The colour red is associated with confidence and power.”  Dr. Gayle Brewer

In business, especially for young women just entering business world and interviewing for their dream jobs well tailored clothes should be taken as one of the top priorities. As you know, first impression is extremely important and on job interviews, especially for jobs in PR or fashion, the way you present yourself can be a deal maker or breaker.

When it comes to basic business women's wardrobe key pieces worth of investing are certainly good quality trench coat, tailored made suit at least in black and grey but also in red or white color, couple of knee lenght pencil skirts, a couple of silk blouses and cotton mix button ups, cigarette pants and great quality nude and black stilettos. Main thing to look for when it comes to good quality suit are perfect fit which will flatter your body type and good quality fabrication.

This Spring, women's power suits are back in trend, my favorite suite colors for Spring are peach, lemon yellow and floral suits, depending on your budget you can find lovely suits in mainstream stores like Mango, Zara and Topshop.

For inspiration I selected a number of designer suits from Spring 2013. collections.
