    Admittedly, it was probably the hair that struck us first coming down the runway at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show last night. We're talking big, bouncy hair poufed to a pillowy, pretty mess of tresses that rivaled the 'dos of Dolly Parton and Diana Ross. But it wasn't just the hair the ruled. The fall '13 collection showed Jacobs channeling '60s secretary vibes with to-the-knee pencil skirts, pinstriped collared buttons-down, and bold-colored car coats.

With structured, boxy handbags and hat boxes in tow, the looks for fall fit the bill for a woman who's going places — whether that means physically or just climbing the boardroom ranks, that's all up for the wearer's interpretation.
