We always expect a quirky cool collection from Marc by Marc Jacobs, and for Spring '13, the Marc girl was all wrapped up (and layered) in cute colors and prints. Evoking a well-traveled glow, models marched down the runway in an array of bright head wraps, multicolored quilted cotton dresses, and baggy striped pants. The results? An effortlessly cool — and slightly rebellious — lineup that's sure to please the designer's avid fans. Get a closer look at the whole collection right here!
Marc Jacobs's Spring 2013 mainline collection may have been all about restrained sensuality, but his secondary line was clearly all about fun. As in the thing that girls just wanna have. It came spelled with a capitol F, and it touched everything from the pastel striped runway to the 1982 electropop playing on the speakers to the Cyndi Lauper scarfs wrapped atop the models' heads.
As for the clothes, well, they were pretty jazzy too. Lots of wacky geometric prints, riotous hues, and plenty of washed-out denim and stripes. On boxy tops, shoulder-padded blazers, flouncy skirts, and peg-leg pants — which came tight-rolled at the ankle, remember that? — it made for a pretty energetic offering. Pile it on, and turn it up, the designer seemed to be saying. And really, why not? There's nothing much more fun than that.
Let's talk positive: the Marc by Marc Jacobs show was about as upbeat as you get, with models in bright layers right up to their patterned turbans bouncing down the runway to the tune of "Can't You Feel It" by Time. If you love color and pattern, MMJ Spring 2013 will be at the top of your Spring shopping list. Check out all the pictures from the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 collection, and come back soon for our full review.

Model Selita Ebanks was chic in an off-white tuxedo blazer and snakeskin pumps at a Moet & Chandon party in NYC, but it was her neon green Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch that really transformed her look. In a matter of seconds, Selita's ensemble was taken to a totally sassy place and all it took was a bold bag. If you've been avoiding neon purses, draw inspiration from Selita and add one to your mix. It can be anything from neon yellow to pink to orange to green. The possibilities are many and so fun to dabble with. To get Selita's exact look, shop similar pieces below.
The usual Marc Jacobs girl packed her bags from New York City and set her sights on Portland, OR, the inspiration for the Marc by Marc Jacobs 2013 Resort Collection. Jacobs paid homage to decades past, featuring models with pastel hair in eye-catching stripes. We're especially loving the red, geometric patterns that nearly popped off the cloth — and did pop on our hands in the form of nail art. Manicure courtesy of Mars the Salon. On Kirbie: H&M.
Taylor Swift exuded retro chic while hanging out with boyfriend Conor Kennedy and his dad, Robert Kennedy Jr., at his family's house in Hyannis, MA. The singer sported a red halter polka-dot bikini top and navy-and-white striped Marc by Marc Jacobs shorts ($104, originally $148) on bottom. Taylor then completed her vintage look by tying a printed bandana around her head and painting her lips red. Before Summer comes to a close, be sure to mimic Taylor's vacation look by pairing a similar polka-dot bikini top with striped shorts. Don't forget to dress your head with a printed scarf for that signature Taylor Swift aesthetic. Shop similar pieces below to get started.
Lea Michele and her Glee castmates filmed scenes for an upcoming episode in NYC, and Lea's character Rachel looked impeccably chic in a black-and-white ensemble. Her onscreen style is normally less sexy and more geeky chic, so this polished nighttime ensemble is a fabulous change and one that is easy to re-create. Up top Lea wore a black tank topped with a crisp white Theyskens' Theory blazer ($675), while on bottom she donned short black shorts with black platform Marc by Marc Jacobs pumps ($295). A gold nameplate necklace and a black Marc by Marc Jacobs bag ($258) completed her TV style. Throw your white blazer over an all-black look to mimic Lea's onscreen style for your next night out.
