The world is watching the women at the top. Prime Minister Theresa May, Chancellor Angela Merkel, Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to name but three. This is not the time for scuffed shoes, random jewellery or wispy hair. OK, it may only be Anna Wintour who has her perfect bob styled every day but it's worth us all factoring in some time for ...POLISH... We have a posse of powerful women at the helm of world affairs. Obviously the style of politicians, business women and film stars is diverse and varied but the focus is the same: Smart, versatile clothes in quality fabrics, meticulous grooming and attention to detail. A modern shoe and haircut goes a long way to achieve this. Preparing to face the world, whether it's in a business meeting or at a summit, does not come together without planning. The likes of Amal Alamuddin Clooney may have a fleet of stylists and we know that Mrs Obama will have a personal shopper to plan a day which includes a school visit and a black tie event. There is a fine line between groomed and uptight; clean swishy hair is the aim not a sprayed helmet. Fabrics are key and the Winser London crepe jersey suiting, the; Milano Wool Coats and, indeed, the Miracle dresses are perfection for the modern business woman. The new jackets and indoor coats are your saviour. Go for luxurious sweaters and capes. Trousers are now worn on all occasions but check that the cut and length are spot-on for 2016. Women can look great irrespective of trends but they should never look dated. What we find at Winser London are beautifully cut clothes that are comfortable and the right price.
