    Fashion may often be about what looks good, but just as important (or even more), it's about what feels good. And with a sexy collection that runs the gamut of quirky prints, feminine hems, sophisticated looks, and the perfect menswear-inspired tailoring, Stella McCartney's pre-fall is a collection to feel good about.

    A sartorial anthem for girl power, the London designer's lineup is filled with inspired looks that, pieced together, make up a dream wardrobe for real girls with real style. The line includes a swoon-worthy number of over-sized outerwear that's utterly chic, yet everyday practical. Silhouettes are quite boxy (think linear maxi dresses and straight-cut trousers in jewel-toned metallics), yet still flatter a woman's figure — a skill that McCartney has mastered season after season. Punctuated with a color scheme that's small in range, yet huge in impact, the results of the pre-fall collection make us dream of all the places where we can wear these powerful looks. The possibilities are endless.

The home is big, beautiful, and read
