Art School Prints

The cheapest way to invest in art this year: your clothes. From hats to wedges, these exuberant wearables offer lots of color and a strong statement. When shopping this summer, go for vivid shades rather than reserved black or navy. A pop of orange or splash of cherry instantly makes you look five years younger.

Great piece! I would wear this with a monochromatic outfit with a brightly colored hat and shoes.
