Fashion: The LBD in Fall 2012

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.
