The Painterly Trend

Brush strokes and paint splatters are dominating clothing and accessories this season. Art and fashion are the ascendants of style, so it does not surprise that a painterly wave has washed over the fashion industry. Jackson Pollack has come alive in handbags, dresses, and tops, and the fashion gurus of the world are rejoicing.

"I don't like standard beauty – there is no beauty without strangeness,” Karl Lagerfeld once said, and it suits our purposes to use it as a mantra for the latest artistic trend. Graphic and bright paint inspired prints are adorning all our favorite items this year. Ranging from subtle to outrageous, the overall look lends to a one-of-kind appearance that has jumped off a museum canvas.

Painterly Fashion: What to Look For

  • Floral prints with a watercolor appearance and irregular smudges works well for sculpted dresses and stiffer fabrics. The black and white Brushstroke Jumper Dress is right on with this trend and will look fabulous during a lunch with friends.
  • Broad brush strokes are best expressed in 3-4 colors max. The Door Knob Tie Trapeze Top from Lucky Brand Jeans has a fun, colorful pattern that makes the top loud but not over-the-top. Pair it with jeans or skinny pants, a blazer, and minimal jewelry, and it’s an outfit which will translate well for work as well as getting drinks afterwards.
  • Look for giant dots of color like the design on this Modish Printed Dress, as if someone used the end of a pencil to create art. This is a great way to wear painterly without going overboard.
  • Paint splatters are expressed in endless color combinations and clothing items, but keep it in check. Always choose items that have a neutral background or a dominance of one color.
  • Artistic dressing can easily overwhelm the body, especially if you’re not used to wearing loud prints. Choose items that are right on the edge of your comfort zone, then stand tall and wear them with confidence.

How to Wear the Painterly Trend

  • Don’t let your painted items stand out like a sore thumb; you want them to be a part of the overall look. Choose colors within your artistic clothing and translate them into shoes, handbags, and other accessories. These Splatter Paint Slingbacks will put an extra kick in your outfit without coming off as screamingly bold. In addition, if you’re wearing a dress consisting of blue, yellow, and pink, match the rest of your outfit accordingly with those colors to create a look that flows together.
  • When it comes to artistic-inspired skirts and tops, pair them with solid colored basics such as white, cream, or black blouses and denim or black bottoms. Add in a few sculptural and modern art-inspired accessories, and viola, instant style.
  • Shoes, handbags, jewelry, and other accessories are just icing on the painted cake. Liven up an old or uninspired outfit with artsy extras. We love the colorful Paint Splash Bangle from Anthropologie. Once again, keep in mind to pick out colors that all work together to create a complete outfit.

Let your inner artist out to play with your wardrobe. Brush strokes, splatters, and watercolors are popping up everywhere, so choose your favorite artistic movement and turn it into one of expressionism!
