Wearing art on your dresses is a creative way of looking feminine and artistic on your street style. Since your prints on dresses will definitely make a bold statement, choose those artistic prints that you can incorporate into your day-to-day look. You may think of floral brushstroke prints, graphic bird prints, and even famous portrait and scenery paintings that can now be found on dresses. For a playful and quirky vibe, you may think of a fruit-print dress like fashion blogger Blair Eadie did wearing a lemon print dress with a matching lemon print clutch. To make your style baroque-inspired, think of baroque print dresses with gold or silver trims as well as historic key prints. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, just top your outfit with a jeweled headband or crown.

If you’re thinking of art-inspired blazers, trousers, or skirts, keep your matching pieces understated as you may want your art-influenced piece to be the center of attention. When wearing a sculptural piece or a scenery-print ensemble, pair your ensembles with muted shades preferably a pair of white pants, a white button-down shirt, or a white blazer. This also means you need to let your shoes and handbag be more muted for where a simple shape and solid color for your accessories ensures that your outfit isn’t overwhelming or costume-y.

To make your outfit look more coordinated, you may think of a matching color from your prints. Like fashion blogger Lidia Frolova, you may think of pairing your floral print blazer and shorts with a pastel top, or a pastel and printed skirt with a pastel top. Different shades of denim shorts and jeans may complement your pastel print especially in light washes of blues. Pairing your art-inspired ensembles with a matching solid-color piece creates a futuristic and oh-so-artistic look.

If you think your art-inspired clothing is too bold and statement-making, you may offset loud prints with your neutral colored blazer, jacket, coat, or even a sweater. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may pair your brushstroke print floral dress with a military jacket that looks trendy and edgy. But, if you’re a fan of a feminine look, go for a pastel colored blazer like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur did wearing an art-inspired skirt with a white tank top and a peach colored blazer.

To make the sharp lines of your look modern while keeping it looks so cutting-edge, go for abstract prints from geometric styles to brushstroke ones, paint splatters, or even prints that echo great works of art. Keep it understated with muted colors of black, white, and gray will still make you look like a beautiful work of art without looking flashy.

Indeed, art knows no bounds as your fashion style expresses your creativity and personality. So, create a masterpiece with your art-inspired clothing and fit the modern vibe of your ensemble!
