Fashion: The LBD in Fall 2012

Posted by Cecilia Walker on

New York Fashion Week is wrapping up today, and there’s still lots to review and dissect.  While I’m still digesting Marc Jacobs’ signature line presentation, I paid attention to the hem lines in his more contemporary (ahem, affordable) label, which is a huge indicator for Fall 2012.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs Ready-to-Wear collection is a bold presentation with dark florals and a military influence (note the combat boots).  But what was most notable to me, is the skirt style — full skirts that fall below the knee.  One of the most coveted pieces in a woman’s wardrobe, is the (3-lettered) LBD, and here I saw no evidence of the mini nor pencil-skirted bottom.  The textures, prints and fabrics shown with these Marc by Marc Jacobs’ dresses (above) are a sampling of what the rest of the line feels like.  While full skirts were consistent throughout, I’ve selected 3 different styles — an a-line dress,  a pleated skirt and one with a peplum (which, this season, deserves an entirely separate post).  Also, note the 3 different patterns — stripes, polka dots and a floral.
