If you've ever struggled to tow the line between looking stylish and feeling comfortable in your clothes, then you're going to fall in love with Stella McCartney's Autumn/Winter 2016 collection.  Add in the fact that Stella's brand is exclusively vegan and made to have a low impact on the planet, and you've got a collection that's just too good to be true, right?

Presented today in Paris, the line has already struck a chord with showgoers, who gazed lustfully at the fusion of cascading silhouettes and quirky knits that paraded down the runway.  It stuck to Stella's usual ethos - neutral, earthy, billowing - but that's not to say that this collection didn't have an energy of its own.  The highlights?  Floaty wool pants, oversized coats that will actually keep you warm next winter, roomy knit dresses (complete with ruffles and a turtleneck, no less), and sultry Swiss lace slips.  Oh, and do not forget that velvet puffer coat from the last exit.  Perfection in its purest form.

I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
