Paintings as prints and line illustrations as patterns have popped all over the runways from New York to Milan in every shade you could imagine. It rehashes the age old question on the symbiotic relationship between fashion and art—which medium influenced the other first? There’s no definitive answer because inspiration for both has always been ambiguous. Either way, the trend proves one thing: Fashion and art will also be intertwined.

So, if you’re looking to make an artistic statement, we recommend doing it with delicate line drawings and whimsical illustrations teamed with neutral separates for a polished look. When in doubt, monochrome outfits are your best bet. Also, adding a sharp blazer, bag and booties to a printed dress will help give you an edgy-vibe. Alternatively, you can always inch your way into the trend with accessories.
