Today's approach to power dressing no longer heralds padded shoulders and corporate clichés. When it comes to real clothes for real life, the landscape of style has shifted. Whether you're an office exec or leading a start-up, what's important now is having a point of view. That's why we are so excited about our January featured Style File Profile, Susan Jordan.
Dressing with authority comes naturally to Susan Jordan, partner at Fox Rothschild, LLP, Pittsburgh office. "I have always loved fashion," she explains. Susan's clean and elegant style suits her petite frame. "The best way I can describe my style is fashion forward but with a classic bent. I like to buy high quality clothes that will last for several seasons, particularly for work. I can be fashion-forward as well as smart. I think one can enjoy fashion & still give the message of authority."
Susan is wearing clover canyon dress, $298.00 & Claudia Nichole cashmere coral wrap, $168.00 both available at One Brilliant.
What is your biggest style challenge? I find it extremely difficult to fill gaps in my wardrobe mid-season, whether it's replacing a staple item, completing an outfit or finding something for a special occasion. I am often frustrated.
Did you have a fashion influence growing-up? Like most girls in the 60s I was mesmerized by Jackie Kennedy Onassis. She was so elegant, sophisticated and confident that she turned heads even when her attire was casual and understated.
Do you think Pittsburgh is becoming more fashionable? Absolutely. The major retailers certainly have not made it easy, but we have come a long way!

True style always reflects a sense of individuality. Susan we love your confidence, your style, your passion, your beauty and most important your success as a woman. Thank you.
