Bold + Bright: The Pop Art Trend
Posted on 28 July 2017
Pop-art, which emerged early in the 1950s, was a representation of pop culture and modern influences during that era. Modern pop art-inspired style featuring bold and fluorescent colors continues being popular and trendy nowadays making the art wearable. Designers showcase their fine art spin using painterly prints and patterns transposing them onto dresses and bring genuine works of art to life on the runway. Looking for inspiration to play the part of modern-day walking portraits? Keep on reading for 6 creative ways to wear the pop-art trend.
1. Bold Jeans Jacket
Jean jackets are bold, timeless, and can be paired with just about anything. The jean jacket is the ultimate spring layering piece. Adding pop art to a jean jacket brings the trend to a whole other level. It brings a fun, yet trendy, and fresh style to a typical jean jacket. Extra fashion-forward: for a super-simple but totally chic update, scrunch up the sleeves of your jacket to show off your bracelets or watch.
Graphics on tees have become a trending sensation in the fashion world, but taking it a notch further and wearing a shirt embellished with pop art can make you stand out in a crowd and will put you at the front of the fashion trend. One of the best things about this trend is its versatility. Throw a blazer on top to dress it up for an evening out with friends or play it down with a ripped pair of skinny jeans and gym shoes.
Whether a tank top, sweater, or a blouse, pop-art tops will definitely add some statement to your looks. For a casual chic style, pair your pop-art sweater with a sleek pencil skirt and a pair of black classic pumps making your outfit a bit polished and trendy. On the other hand, wearing your pop-art tank top with a pair of distressed denim shorts will make your casual street style effortlessly cool and trendy. Just polish your outfit with trendy sneakers, casual bag, and a pair of cute sunglasses that complement your street style.
Looking for unexpected ways to look feminine? Go for pop-art skirts that flatter your shape. Skirts are feminine ensembles next to dresses. Think of a simple and plain button-down shirt, crop top, tank top, plain shirt and such that will go well with your skirts. Leave your print mixing skills with your other outfits as it won’t work in a pop-art piece.
A crop top worn with a pop-art pencil skirt and feminine pumps look a bit sexy and at the same time quirky. Finish your looks with a quirky clutch, chic sunglasses, and feminine shoes to make your style a bit chic.
Pop-art coats are more versatile than dresses as you can easily put them on when you feel to and take them off when it feels a bit inappropriate for the setting.
You may think of wearing a statement coat in an unexpected way with pop-art coats that go well with any of your outfit like boyfriend jeans, pleated skirts, shift dresses, matching sets and such. But, leave these coats to your street style as they won’t suit your professional and smart looks at the office.
Wearing a pop-art dress is a dramatic way of wearing the trend. Since it’s too much eye-catching and loud, better go for styles that add some personality to your looks without looking overly funky or quirky.
Some designers featured some famous food chain brands like Coca Cola in their signature pieces on the runway. But, why pay for their advertising? So, instead of taking the trend by what’s in or not, simply go for dresses that you feel comfortable in without looking like a walking billboard.
6. Clutch and Accessories
If you wish to add a bit of quirky vibe to your style without looking overdone, then go for pop-art clutches and bags, and accessories. Pop-art says a lot about your personality so be careful when choosing them.
Pop-art clutch and bags will work well with a monochromatic outfit, but you can also wear bright colors with them.
To avoid clashing your bright colors with your pop-art clutch, better opt for shades that coordinate your statement piece.
