InPower Women has partnered with Silkarmour to host conversations about women, fashion, and power. What you wear to work impacts how people perceive you, your self-worth, and capabilities. It’s tempting to think that clothing shouldn’t matter to our success, but it is part of expressing ourselves as whole women–inside and outside. Unfortunately, there’s no rulebook for workplace fashion to express their personal brand and style. Too often we have to figure this out on our own amongst confusing cultural messages. At InPower Women, we offer a different way, and that is to discuss openly–on the site and in the Silkarmour forum–how to dress for success in ways that communicate our authentic personal brand and personal power and that supports our quest for career satisfaction and work-life leadership.
We’ll be hosting discussions at the forum and in blogs with the team at Silkarmour to regularly explore these issues.

Who is Silkarmour?
Silkarmour was created to make life easier for ambitious, hard-working career women everywhere.
Our mission is simple. To create a one-stop shop offering a comprehensive assortment of carefully curated, high quality garments that are comfortable, beautiful and work-appropriate. Our goal is to offer workplace fashion that empowers women to climb the career ladder with confidence from the first interview to the C-suite while looking sharp, chic and feminine with minimal time and effort.
Coming from a range of corporate roles in investment banking, private equity, and wealth management, it was always clear to the team at Silkarmour that an ambiguity remains in women’s work wear that men never have to face.
Having spent entire weekends trying to find suits not made of polyester, we understood the difficulty of looking polished and elegant in what are often male dominated, ‘suit and tie uniform’ offices. So we set out on a mission to find the designers, boutiques and tailors that deliver office appropriate clothing crafted in luxurious fabrics sent straight to your door, giving you more time to focus on the things that are more important than shopping.
We believe that true equality will be achieved when women represent their own interests. At Silkarmour we want to help the women breaking the glass ceiling by providing them with business appropriate attire wherever they are, at the touch of a button. We believe your clothing is one of the few portals at your disposal to communicate to the world how you perceive yourself and direct others on how you ought to be perceived. Our primary goal is to educate women to buy consciously, to reject passing trends in favour of dressing with a purpose; know who you are and then adorn yourself accordingly.
We want to put women at the pinnacles of every major organization in the world. To do this, we have founded a business that targets both the office dress code and women’s progression in the workplace. We believe the working wardrobe is your new career ally and should be a completely reliable resource and not a liability for you to deal with each morning. Our solution is enabling you to dress for serious leadership and creating easy access to female role models, advice and networks through our platform. Because if you want to be a CEO, you need to dress like one, think like one and act like one. We can only give you the first part, but it’s a start.
