Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 Runway Review

It was schoolgirl chic for this season’s Marc by Marc Jacobs collection — complete with some models wearing stereotypically erudite thick rimmed glasses.

Prim and proper below-the-knee day and cocktail dresses with fitted waists, pleated skirts with conservative hems, longsleeve print sweaters, and button down monochrome blouses made for wearable looks that will likely appeal to women from schoolgirl age to well beyond. While tent dresses, loose-fitting menswear-inspired coats, and plaid in a variety of iterations made for some military-inspired looks, some of which were complemented with sergeant hats (not unlike those seen on the Fall 2011 Louis Vuitton runway) and combat boots.
