“The Art of the Deal”

Outfits that mean business… S/S 2017

When you dress up for a business lunch, you want your outfit to send signals about your strength, your self-confidence, your negotiating position, wether it’s for a closing of a deal, a professional presentation, a hiring meeting, or a signing at the notary’s… You definitively want to use your clothes as a bargaining tool.

Here are some inspiration from this Spring-Summer season to avoid the dull and stereotypical business outfits.

If you want to project an image of power and authority, these two quite similar suits have a very strong and masculine cut, whilst the feminine waist is highlighted. The navy blue version is by Salvatore Ferragamo, and the black one is from the Versace collection.

If you want to show your dynamic personality, you can wear something more sporty but still elegantly cut, like these Max Mara tropical athleisure suits with their big bold printed leaves.

But when you prefer to show yourself as cultured and intellectual, you can go for this Max Mara very original look, with its trompe-l’oeil false fur scarf, and its skirt with animal prints.

Finally, you can choose a fresh, glamorous and nonchalant – but still very positive – attitude with this fluid jacket and funky shirt, with a fringed tie, all in pink and cream colors, from the Ermanno Scervino collection.
