Fashion Inspiration: Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2013

1, 2, 3, 4

The Lilly Pulitzer company has long been known for being the pink and green queen of Palm Beach. With their Fall 2013 line, however, they’ve opted for an entirely different look. The overall palette welcomes saturated jewel tones over rich textures. Lace details and intricate patterns rest on playful peplum ensembles. Fans of original Lilly pieces won’t be disappointed either – the collection pays tribute to the classics with butterfly motifs and tons of color.

While you might not have pre-ordered any of the pieces, you can use these preppy ensembles for inspiration for your back-to-campus wardrobe. Below, I’ve created several outfits inspired by the Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2013 catalog looks. Scroll down to see them all!

Put a classic twist on the chevron trend with this polished ensemble inspired by one of Lilly’s new looks! Wear a colorful zig-zag printed dress with a pair of neutral wedge sandals. Add a pearl statement necklace and matching bracelet stack to the mix, then tie a square scarf around your wrist for a fun twist. Slip on some oversized sunnies to complete the outfit.

A pair of wedge sandals dresses it up, while a pearl cluster bracelet adds a bit of a statement to this simple ensemble.

    I think the Lilly fall 2013 line is adorable…However, like the 2012 fall line it has the same problem: with the exception of the Beckett and Isabella dresses, all of the pieces still look like they belong in spring/summer. I’ve always thought that Lilly does spring and summer best and I love the looks, just not for fall and winter.

    This Lily Pulitzer collection is fantastic because it balances the classic summer print style with a more appropriate for fall look that features beautiful vibrant colors. I really like how they have incorporated lace into the collection.
