Fashion, Outfit of the Day

The Art Project: Clothes are my Favorite Medium

One of my favorite hours of the day in elementary and high school was art class! I was fortunate enough to attend a school district that did not skimp on class offerings of this sort. I enjoyed ceramics, painting, and jewelry making just to name a few. It was 60 minutes out of the day to let my creative mind (that I did’t appreciate I had!) roll, and forget about the common stressors that come along with being a kid in school. Fast forward to 2019 and I contemplate enrolling myself in adult art classes. But is putting together a thoughtful ensemble really that much different than a traditional medium of art?!

My Art Project

This look is what I refer to my “art project.” Using mixed mediums (a beaded corset and a water color skirt), I was able to piece together an eye-catching ensemble. Incorporating different textures into your outfit is a great way to create dimension and appeal. In this case, the pearl corset is an unexpected element to the design. The neon on the top and bottom (neon slides) pulls everything together into a cohesive look.

Are you new to the neon trend this spring? I mentioned this during a radio segment with Shan and Greg last week on 99.7Now – neon is HOT and totally classy. It can be mixed with traditional spring pastels and conservative garments. I’ll admit it, this outfit is suitable for the younger generation and maybe a bit “wild.” My art project is elegant and appropriate for gals of all ages. The bustier can easily be swapped out for a beautiful blouse. Now that you see graceful and chic neon can be, are you willing to give it a go?!
