We here at Team Zoe have nothing but love for the power suit but while the monochromatic blazer/trouser combo is forever on our fashion radar, figuring out how to make it modern season-to-season can be a challenge. To help decode the nuanced details required to pull off a pantsuit look no further than the perennially chic Amal Clooney, who recently stepped out in London wearing sleek separates. To steal her style, find a jacket that hits right at the hip and is fitted through the shoulders and arms. Coordinate with straight-leg pants that are hemmed to expose your ankles. The length is key, so if your slacks are too long, go to your local seamstress for this simple alteration. For the shirt, instead of opting for a standard button-up, swap in a mock-neck silk blouse or cashmere sweater. Finish the look with subtle polish via feminine pumps in unexpected light gray, a structured lady bag, a blowout and a deep-berry lip stain. Now you’re ready for a power lunch with the top brass.
