What is the hottest collection from Resort 2013 so far? Marc Jacobs of course! Just a couple of months after the lookbook was made available to the press, pieces from the collection have been seen on the back of some of the most fashionable ladies in fashion. Anna Wintour, Hilary Swank, Sofia Coppola and Hailee Steinfeld have all been spotted wearing Marc Jacobs Resort 2013. Rihanna opted for a floral halter dress from the collection when Oprah paid a visit to her hometown Barbados not to long ago.

So what’s so special about this one particular Resort collection compared to others? The entire collection was inspired by photographer Cindy Sherman’s series of clown portraits. We know looking like a clown is the last thing on your mind when it comes to fashion but trust Mr. Marc Jacobs himself to turn something that belongs to a circus into a beautiful collection of seventies prints and playful silhouette that make head turns.
It’s all about bright colors and clashes of prints for this resort collection. Marc Jacobs gives the collection exaggerated silhouette which really works. The sleeves are poufier than ever and so does the skirts, they are so full like flowers. The kinds that you see blooming in the island.
We have three simple tips to emulate the trends from this collection.
1. Wear clashing patterns. Geometric and floral or romantic tiny petals and bright full blooms- just mix them all up. You will be surprised with the outcome. Be bold!
2. Play with proportions. Remember the lilac full-skirt Carrie Bradshaw wore in Abu Dhabi? We are thinking along the same line here and so does Marc Jacobs. It’s a little over the top but have fun with it. Belt it up if it gets too overwhelming.
3. Accessorize with chunky heels and bright handbags. Yellow, purple and orange handbags as well as clutches add extra punch to the color galore that you have going on. Go easy on other accessories if they are needed at all.
