Stella McCartney designs for women who want to look both smart and sexy, while still undeniably at ease. Exhibit A: This color-blocked, flexible micro-pleat dress with a mid-calf length. With its carefully placed sliver of transparent mesh slicing through form-fitting orange and whispery mint, this sporty take on the occasion dress will escort you through a calendar buzzing with art parties and weddings. Note that the back is almost entirely sheer — all the better for those with toned abs, shoulders, and lats.
