With the fashion world on her side, 2017 was the year of the boss girl. Workwear has dominated the past few seasons, with brands like Balenciaga and Gucci parading power suits down their runways.

Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia has opted for an abstractly structured take on the iconic silhouette with his amped-up shoulder pads, while Alessandro Michele gave the Gucci suit some 80’s flair with intricate sequin detailing. With fashion’s celebration of female empowerment this year, it is no surprise that the trend has grown to be a street style staple.
