Tailored to succeed

It is a style women always go for - smart, wearable clothes that work for them. For the successful look nothing beats a softly tailored suit with clean sleek lines that can be dressed up or down with accessories. Others opt for the ease of non-crease fabrics in soft flowing co-ordinates or the casual elegance of shirts worn with long vests and wrap-over skirts.

Careful shopping means more flash for less cash.

POWER dressing never looked this good. In the caring, sharing '90s, businesswomen are abandoning their shoulder pads in favour of a softer, less structured look.

The body is making a comeback. While knobbly knees are disappearing under long-line skirts and trousers, waists are reappearing in long, figure-hugging jackets and dresses. The look is lean and elegant.
