Mix-and-Match Masterpieces by Miss Moss

Fashion and art go hand in hand, and there’s no one that understands this better than Diana of the blog Miss Moss. Diana’s internet-famous color comparisons show her knack for matching beautiful pieces of art with the latest street style and designer collections. We were so smitten with her comparisons that we asked her to create a few ModCloth ensembles inspired by fine art, and gave her free reign over our closet. The result? Nothing short of a masterpiece!

    I always love these outfit posts, but as I’ve said before, I wish there were more affordable pieces. To order all these suggested pieces would be over $500.

      Sorry, I meant just the pieces for the first Modigliani look are over $500.

    LOVE this! I agree with Emily. :)

    My personal fave is the Gauguin outfit. Love the combination of dark and earthiness with the vibrant splashes of color.

    Yes! Two of my favorites: art history and fashion. I do, however, agree with the previous post that these outfits are quite expensive. Perhaps you could show multiple outfits or variations on different pieces of clothing. Either way, I love this.

    As a history of art student and fashion blogger, this was just to my taste! The post was so well written and researched and sooo enjoyable! Thanks!!
