Everyone’s body, like its sex, is innate and can’t be determined by its will. Therefore, clothes, which are defined as an extension of the human body, have always carried the function of decorating the self-body and beautifying individual images. For women, whose bodies were always under the strict regulation of diverse social rules, clothes are also an effective tool to fight against the male gaze and patriarchal aesthetics. During the first and second feminist movements in the last century, the emergence and popularity of female power dressing made a great contribution to empower women, assisting them in gaining legal equality and democratic rights in different societal fields. This article will focus on the externalization of women’s powerful dressings to explore its correlation with female consciousness and female discourse and the modification of female subjective status during the first two feminist movements in the western world. Additionally, the development of women’s power dressings in China will be presented compared to Western women’s costume revolution.
