When you think of powerful women, who comes to mind? Senators? Congresswomen? Judges? All of the above! Recently, Nina McLemore was featured in the Washington Post for dressing these strong women in America. Nina McLemore is a fashion designer who advises female clients on how to dress for work, to land the promotion, reel in a client, state her case, and win the election. She has made a name for herself with her softly tailored jackets which have recently been worn by powerful women such as Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet L. Yellen, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The McLemore jackets have filled a niche as the uniform for woman of a certain level of authority. They’re designed not only to balance out a woman’s proportions or distract from a problem area, but to communicate power. The version of power that strides through law firms, investment banks, the halls of Congress, and perhaps the Oval Office. Her signature jackets are cut with a narrow shoulder and full back. Her sleeves run longer than average with the ability to cuff so women can turn them up in a get-to-work posture. The collars stand up to frame the face and elongate the body.
