British Prime Minster Theresa May Has a Style Mantra For All Power Women
New British Prime Minister Theresa May is not reserved when it comes to style. As the second woman to hold the post in parliament, her bold wardrobe helps her distinguish pride and confidence, and she doesn’t shy away from statement heels or designer pieces that make her happy. “I like clothes and I like shoes. One of the challenges for women in the workplace is to be ourselves, and I say you can be clever and like clothes. You can have a career and like clothes,” she said when she spoke at the Women in the World Summit last year.
Even so, her followers caused a stir when Theresa stepped out for the Pride of Britain Awards in a fit-and-flare that stopped above the knee. “Put your knees away,” one Twitter user commented. But we’d argue that Theresa’s satin piece is both sophisticated and fun. Like so many other power women – some of whom hold office – Theresa’s outfits are modest, yet full of personality.
Her famous leopard pumps, which she wore when she was sworn in as leader, didn’t feel too playful when paired with a tailored colorblock coat. Instead, they’re a daring step in the right direction and a call to all ladies in the spotlight to wear what they like. Read on to find 39 memorable pieces Theresa May flaunted while on the job, all of which confirm that a loud print, cut, or color can be business appropriate too.
