Power dressing means different things to different people. For me personally, it is putting on an outfit that instantly boosts my confidence and simply makes me feel really good about myself. If you feel confident in yourself, you ooze confidence without even knowing it.

We all have our go-to styles, it may be a certain style of dress or a pair of heels that we always find ourselves going back to me. One of mine is a fit and flare style dress that cuts in at the waist. They are a workwear style for me! These are the types of dresses I feel confident in and choose to wear if I want to feel my best. 

For Thursday’s ‘A Week At Work In Dorothy Perkins’, I wanted to share a dress that’s quite quickly become one of my favourites hanging in my wardrobe right now. As much as I love a simple, understated look, I also can’t resist a statement outfit that will get people talking when you walk through the doors at work. 

I must admit, when I’m shopping for work clothes I feel immediately drawn to the black version in everything. But I’ve recently tried making the effort to push the boundaries when it comes to my style and step slightly outside of my comfort zone. This dress does exactly that with the mix and match of animal prints. Although the pattern may look a bit wild at first (excuse my pun!) for a corporate environment, it’s actually an extremely sophisticated look that I would feel more than comfortable walking into a meeting wearing.

I love how each different animal print blends into the next to create something entirely new, and the tie detail at the waist which I found really flattering. 

To keep the dress as the main statement piece in this outfit, I simply paired it with some black slingback court shoes and a black tote bag with a tortoiseshell handle. All it needs now is a long black coat to throw on for the chilly commute.
