If your wardrobe is in need of a little inspiration, then you’re in luck! Starting 8/13 at 11 a.m. PT, we’re hosting a contest on Pinterest that crosses the creative worlds of art and fashion, and will help you take your sense of style outside the box. Just create outfits based off of one or all six pieces of art in this blog post, and your stylish, art-inspired board could win you a $50 ModCloth gift certificate!
To enter, simply create a board titled “The Art of Style ModCloth Contest”, and re-pin our contest pin to your board. Next, pin the image of a piece of art that inspires you. Then, pin the ModCloth items that make up an awesome ensemble inspired by the artwork. Beneath each pin, include a small description, the hashtag #modcloth, and a hashtag of the artist’s name for reference (i.e. The print on this dress captures the palette of the painting. #janedoe #modcloth).
You can include all six works of art in your board, but please create only one outfit per piece of art. When your board is perfect, share it with us by posting it as a link in a comment on our original contest announcement pin, located in our “Design of the Times” board.
