The power suit is having a major moment. Thanks to all the nasty women out there, the ’80s classic is getting a modern upgrade in new silhouettes and styles galore. However, some of us just aren’t suit people, and that’s totally okay. The power suit is all about how you feel, so really anything can be a power suit. Jennifer Lopez is reiterating this point with her cherry-red bodycon dress and leopard print bag, which just so happens to be our favorite modern take on power dressing.

No, it’s not a suit, but it makes a statement — and it’s J.Lo, so it totally counts.

One way to rock a non-power suit power suit? Go monochrome. By pairing matching shades with contrasting accessories, perhaps in a bright color or animal print, you not only make a statement but ensure that you look elegant and put-together with minimal work. Not only is J.Lo’s curve-hugging midi-length dress worth a double-take, but thanks to her choice of structured Christian Louboutin leopard print bag, it’s professional too.

This outfit is office-ready and mom-ready.

Jennifer wore this ensemble while with her daughter Emme and son Maximilian, further showing that this look is a modern version of the beloved power suit (Wonder Woman would wear this). She finished off the outfit with matching red Jimmy Choo stiletto pumps, gold Jennifer Fisher hoop earrings, and oversized Gucci square sunglasses, and looked like the true bombshell she is.

A power suit is equal parts killer look and state of mind, and it seems like J.Lo has nailed that equation effortlessly. Très chic!
