If there is one designer that knows the fine art of perfecting man-style power dressing mixed with femininity, it's Stella McCartney. And the world agrees. She is continually opening more stores (fingers crossed she lands on our shores) and is also the official designer of the British team's 2012 Olympic uniforms. At her recent Fall 2012 show at Paris Fashion Week, McCartney said the "Stella woman is about balance."
This is the balance that women around the world seek to find and create. The balance between juggling family, career, other relationships and inner self. It is a hard balance to come by and one that takes years to perfect. Only the strongest, most confident and powerful woman find this balance. But what it all stems from is your inner balance and inner happiness and being content with yourself and your surroundings. It doesn't come from how other people perceive you or how much you have succeeded in your career, but from the feelings inside.
Stella McCartney creates clothing for this woman. Shirt dressing, skater skirts with oversized jumpers and tailored pants with intricate detailing in a palette of cobalt blue, black and white. This type of tailored power dressing that is still a touch feminine is perfect for the modern woman. McCartney manages to perfect it season after season and you can too.
