McQ Goes Napoleon On Us For Fall '13

You're more interested in conquering your upcoming work presentation than conquering, say, Europe, for example — but McQueen's French military-inspired fall collection demands a fighter from this generation. With beautifully flared coats, prim blazers, and the bell sleeves indicative of Sarah Burton's hand, this collection combines strong, work-appropriate separates into a collection so stately, it'd look right at home atop a throne as it would at the head of a boardroom.
While there may be a lack of bicorne hats in the collection, McQueen suggests that power-lady bosses of this era wear their big-buckeled waist belts, exaggerated collar button-ups, and tiger-printed waistcoats like badges of honor. Click through to see all the looks.
