The easiest way to amp up a dreary fall wardrobe is to play with color and that's exactly what designer Marc Jacobs did for his Fall 2013 Marc collection. Featuring lots of monochrome and color-blocked looks, Jacobs also worked with timeless silhouettes, which made for a collection that was both classic and modern.

Want to snag a runway-ready look for less? Just scroll down to check out three outfits inspired by looks from Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 RTW:

1. Overtly Oxblood

Burgundy is one of the hottest hues for fall and this runway look shows just how versatile this shade can be. The graphic print dress stands out on its own, but is taken to the next level style-wise when paired with a matching belt and oxblood handbag

For a similar outfit, look for a printed dress with a retro silhouette - this one from ModCloth has a '40s-inspired vibe. Play up the deep red shade of the frock by defining the waistline with a crimson-colored belt and accessorizing with an oxblood handbag. Continue the classic appeal of the ensemble with tasseled loafers and a leather-strap wristwatch.

2. Blue Crush

Just like the last outfit, this runway look plays with pairing multiple pieces in the same color family. This time, however, the shades of blue are broken up with a red-trim belt and matching lip. The plaid coat also adds visual interest to the solid-colored skirt and top.

Recreate this monochrome look by pairing a navy pencil skirt with a blue knit sweater. The hint of red on this belt breaks up the two colors, while the plaid coat is a trendy choice for fall. Add a pair of unique corduroy t-strap flats as well as a blue cross-body bag. For the finishing touch, paint your lips a matte red shade.

3. Bold Berries

An easy way to inject some style into your autumn wardrobe is by color-blocking, as shown in the runway outfit above. In this case, the red skirt and berry-hued top look cohesive, but not too matchy-matchy.

Make this runway ensemble work for class by tucking a berry sweater into a cherry red midi skirt. Lace-up brogues keep things casual, while a burgundy belt adds interest. Grab a fun printed satchel to stash your textbooks, then accessorize with a delicate layered necklace. Lastly, style your hair into voluminous waves to create a similar 'do to the one the model rocked on the runway.
