Female power dressing used to be a form of camouflage. Shoulder pads, pinstripes, and double-breasted jackets gave women a more masculine silhouette, allowing them to blend seamlessly into the boardroom. Thankfully, that approach has gone the way of the word processor.

This season, designers are highlighting our progress with tailored suits that show their clout by standing out. Here, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O'Donnell wears an eye-catching crimson suit by Brandon Maxwell to the CBS Upfront presentation in New York City. A defined waist and slinky pink halter top project a feminine air, proving you can rock bright colors and sumptuous lines—and still mean business.

TRAIL BLAZER
Whether you're wearing it to the office or pairing it with jeans, Robert Rodriguez's red Eva blazer positively exudes authority.

SHEER DELIGHT
With a pussy-bow neckline in front and a sheer lace panel in back, this berry pink silk bow blouse by designer Sophie Cameron Davies mixes business and pleasure.



WELL RED
Sharply creased and dramatically flared, Robert Rodriguez's Eva cropped trousers sculpt you into the ultimate power player.

STEP IT UP
With see-through plexi straps at the toes and wraparound straps at the ankles, these towering Patent & Plexi Stark Gianvito Rossi sandals are the most stylish way to stand tall.



UNDER STUDY
Rendered in bright raspberry, this cowl neck spaghetti strap cami by Fleur du Mal is a genius way to sneak in silk—and some skin—under a blazer.

FAN CLUB
Go big or go ... even bigger. These oversize crystal earrings by Dannijo fan out wide and sparkle for miles.&



THE BRIGHT STUFF
When wearing head-to-toe red, an assertive stamp of hot-pink lipstick, like L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Laminated Fuchsia, offers an edgy contrast.
