Are Boring Suits Making You Yawn? Wake up Your Career With Eloquii’s “Work Wear With a Twist”!

Working women in the 80’s were truly pioneers in feminism, fighting tirelessly to be seen as equal to their male counterparts in the workplace. In their efforts to prove themselves, many women chose to abandon their skirts and dresses and instead adopt the manly “power suits” in order to be taken seriously in a corporate environment. Unfortunately, while power suits may have helped us win the fight for equality, they definitely lost the fight for fashion.

Thanks to these brave women, we are now usually seen as equals and no longer have to fear sacrificing our professionalism in order to flaunt our favorite styles. This was really brought home to me when I saw Eloquii’s “Work Wear With a Twist” collection, which combines the strength and structure of traditional work wear with the softness of feminine colors and fabrics.

Outfits such as this one, “Stripes and lace top” with “Seamed pencil skirt”, marry strong vertical stripes with delicate lace and a bold yet feminine hot pink color, giving us the confidence to walk proudly into the office of any Fortune 500 company’s CEO and demand the raise we’ve earned!

While I am so incredibly grateful to our mothers, aunts, etc, who endured ridicule, lower wages, and harassment in order to strengthen future generations’ chances of a better life, I am also very thankful that women are no longer forced to surrender our femininity and desire for beauty in the quest for equality.

 

Question of the day: Do you think that women have truly become equal to men in the workplace or do you think that the fight is still ongoing?

  1. I’m not sure when the fight (for any type of equality) will ever end; but, indeed, progress has been made! (:
