If power dressing in 1977 was simple, sexless, and boringly steadfast, 40 years later it is ­wide-ranging and refreshingly individualistic. From Donna Karan’s 1992 ad campaign, which anticipated Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign, to today’s pinstriped jackets from Balenciaga, here’s a salute to power dressing with style.
