Petite Fashion Challenge # 20: Marc Jacobs SS 2013 inspired look

Pin It

I have to admit – I had a tough time putting this challenge together. Runway looks typically focus on the style and cut. It’s not always easy to replicate those extraordinary looks using everyday pieces. The challenge was even more difficult for me since half of my stuff is still in the storage. Although, I was determined not to buy anything new and use what I already have for this challenge. After hours of scouring the internet for inspiration, I've decided to recreate a look as seen on the Marc Jacobs SS 2013 runway. With the use of stripes and patterns in black and white, the collection was incredible. While everyone was going for a pop of color, he did a marvelous job making basic colors looking amazing. You can watch the entire show here.

What I am wearing:
Skirt: BB Dakota *old* (buy similar here or here)
Dress worn as top: Banana Republic v-neck dress - size 0P

To stay true to the inspired look, I created this outfit using stripes/patterns in black and white. This look is simple, chic and totally wearable. I hope you enjoy this post and I can’t wait to check out everyone’s entries. If you’re interested in hosting next month’s PFC, please sign up here. I am bringing back the PFCs and hope to keep it going this time. If you are participating in this month’s challenge, please link your post below.

I know you said it was hard to put this look together, but you seriously look awesome. I totally think you nailed the look. I LOVE stripes on stripes. I love that it is all over the runways, but it is also simple enough to wear in real life. You look great!
