"Give me Liberty!" could have been the motto for Stella McCartney's resort collection. Where others were reviving Ossie Clark prints, she reworked the English department store's classic florals into frocks both long and flirty. Also in the lineup were pretty day dresses in plaid or muted pastels that floated around the body, and, for evening, cocktail dresses in lamé or multicolored sequins that popped like bubbles in Champagne. What to wear with one of McCartney's chic oversize toppers? Try the high-waisted boyfriend jeans she made in collaboration with the French denim label Notify.
