The late great designer, Yves Saint Laurent, once said, "I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence."
And those words still ring true today. Never underestimate the power of clothes.
Yes, women have made tremendous strides based on intelligence and a strong will to succeed. But ask any powerful woman and she might attest to the fact that a great outfit can also be the last bit of armor she puts on as she gets ready to do battle in the world.

So what does that have to do with your wardrobe? You might not be running to rule the free world but sometimes a woman needs just a single stylish item to help update her wardrobe, make her look modern and give her confidence to go about her everyday life.
Scroll through our slide show for a selection of items to update your wardrobe this season.
