Not too long ago Style.com ran a trend piece on what it calls “art-teacher chic.” We read it and thought, hmm, that’s the perfect way to describe the style of some of our patterns.
“Art-teacher chic—loose tunics, big ceramic necklaces, modest shoes—has become the go-to uniform for fashion-y women who are done with overdone.” —Style.com
Designers like Rachel Comey (a Vogue Patterns designer), Celine and Prada exemplify this easy, wearable style of dressing.
If you’re looking for art-teacher chic patterns, check out Lynn Mizono and Marcy Tilton for Vogue Patterns. Katherine Tilton nails the look for Butterick. For even more examples of patterns that exemplify this creative, relaxed style of dressing, check out our new Art-Teacher Chic Pinterest board.
Is art-teacher chic your style? I just got back from a long weekend in Woodstock, NY, where this kind of dressing is de rigueur for women of all ages. Tell us more about your look by leaving a comment here. Thanks!
