Fall 2011 Marc by Marc Jacobs: My Closet

Are you ready to look through your closet for clothes that fit the theme of Marc by Marc JacobsFall 2011 collection?  Here are the items I found in my closet.  I hope they give you some ideas of how you can relate the clothes in your closet to the runway.

The collection features silk for shirts, skirts, and dresses.  If your silk clothes are smooth and shiny, like my silver shirt, they’ll imitate the satin in the collection rather than the silk.

If you’re like me, you’ve had plaid pants tucked away in your closet for awhile because seasonal trends pushed them aside.  I was super excited to see plaid pants in this collection.  To match the collection as closely as possible, look for simple plaid and tweed designs made into pants, suits, and coats.

A pop of green showed up in the collection in a silk shirt and dress.  Even if you don’t have clothing made of green silk, an item in the same color can give you the right look.

Purple also made a few appearances, including an elegant velvet suit!

Break out your black skirts, jackets, and wide-legged cropped pants.  Although the collection didn’t include ruffles, the layers on my dress mimic the horizontal stripes seen in this outfit.

Carry off a bold look in bright corduroy.  This unique jacket is one of my favorite items in my closet.

It’s your turn!  Look through your closet, and pull out clothes that resemble the clothes in Marc by Marc Jacobs’ collection.  Then go to Fashion Your Closet’s Facebook page, and post a picture of your favorite find on the wall!

  1. Wow, this is genius, lady. I just can imagine how perfect the first and second pieces would go together. You need dark brown ankle boots and you´ve got one stunning look. Of course, tucked in. 🙂
