For his spring 2011 collection, Marc Jacobs took inspiration from the luxe 1970s-era looks of Yves Saint Laurent, as well as the New York Dolls and 1976’s Taxi Driver. The result? A swirling mix of bright color and bold prints with a bohemian-meets-disco vibe. We unconditionally loved the collection and we know you did too, which is why it is the subject of today’s Runway To Reality story. So, whether you want to add a dose of Marc Jacobs-inspired color to your spring wardrobe, or you want a budget-friendly version of his sought-after maxi dresses, we’re sure you’ll find plenty of ideas and inspiration in today’s story. Read on!
Your Marc Jacobs-inspired wardrobe should include three key elements – bright colors, bold prints, and breezy silhouettes. Happily, there are plenty of options to choose from, whether you look for a summery maxi dress or stylish separates. We were instantly drawn to Campaigne’s Print Tie Front Dress ($96.04) and Topshop’s Lattice Bodice Dress ($300). Both dresses are worth checking out – not only will they give your spring closet a heavy dose of color, but, when paired with the right accessories, they are guaranteed to catch the eye. We are similarly smitten with Topshop’s Broderie Lace Trim Vest ($55) and Gypsy Sleeve Frill Blouse ($70). Both of these pieces have a bohemian vibe – which is essential to creating a Marc Jacobs-inspired closet – and will look amazing when paired with Diane von Furstenberg’s Notrina Twill Shorts ($198).
Of course, your Marc Jacobs-inspired closet won’t be complete without a selection of 1970s-inspired accessories. To start, we suggest you pick up a pair of Castañer’s Platform Sandals ($195) – they instantly call to mind the bohemian/disco vibe that we spotted on the runway. Likewise, you should consider Dooney & Bourke’s Large Pleated Wristlet ($65) – it will give every ensemble a pop of color, whether you pair it with complementary shades or basic black. Finally, make sure you pick up an oversized hat this spring, such as Pins & Needles’ Basic Straw Floppy Hat ($29). Happy shopping!
