Splattered With Style

Attire that's been splattered with paint--or woven to look like it, is turning up everywhere! Its an interesting trend. Some pieces look well calculated and designed to allow the one donning it to basically turn into walking art. But other pieces leave you looking like you finished a project with dad in the basement and didn't have time to change before stepping out on the town. I've decided to feature a sampling of designers who found a way to keep this light hearted trend fashionable. Unless you're a mix master, use just one splattered statement piece, and stick to basics for the rest of your ensemble. You'll get noticed, but you can't take yourself too seriously in this look. Just have fun with it.

Can you find the artist within this season or is this too avant garde for you? Maybe just the hat, or a pocket square will let you dabble with this creative look. Comment below! Will you wear this?

  1. I am finally comfortable wearing a purple coat and shits with flowers on them. I am afraid I can't quite go to this next level yet. I do however like the McQ denim jeans.
