Welcome to another week of Style Imitating Art, where we draw our style inspiration from works of art.

INSPIRATION ART WORK

Leyendecker {Style Imitating Art}

The image is an ad for for Arrow shirt collar by J.C. Leyendecker {the male model is his long-time partner, Charles Beach}. Leyendecker as a German-American illustrator. He’s considered to be one of the preeminent American illustrators of the early 20th century and is best known for his poster, book and advertising illustrations, the trade character known as The Arrow Collar Man, and his covers for The Saturday Evening Post. You can learn more about him by clicking here.

THE CURATOR

This week’s inspiration piece was curated by Salazar {14 Shades of Gray} because “…it is the height of summer, I wanted to pick a summery piece, and this one – with its white-and-beige color scheme and touches of green, black, and pink – just fits the bill.”

l agree! I’m definitely picking up summer vibes from the soft relaxed way the models are leaning into the railings to the muted colors in the image.

MY LOOK

My life these days is pretty casual — shorts and jeans almost every day. I’m not complaining, though, because it’s really too hot to be bothered with work wear right now. Even though I’m not working right now, I do make an effort to get up and get dressed. Even if no one will see me. I’ve found that if I stay in sweats all day I tend to get a little, I don’t know, depressed. So I keep the same schedule that I kept when I had a job. It’s the little things…

Anyway, I decided to pair my cream colored peasant blouse with a pair of olive shorts that have been in my closet forever. I thought those pieces mimicked the ivories and greens in the ad. For the browns and tans, I added my sandals. The golds come from my jewelry. And my “ombre” hair.
