Welcome to the Style Imitating Art Roundup!  Style Imitating Art is hosted by me, Daenel~Living Outside the Stacks and Salazar~14 Shades of Grey.  Every two weeks, we select a piece of art.  After that, it is up to us (and you!) to make an outfit inspired by the artwork.  Let's see what today's participants have selected! 

About Style Imitating Art
In addition to colors, you may also want to look at textures, mood, style, genre or contrasts.  There are no "wrong" outfits, and you don't need to be literal.

The Curator
This week's inspiration piece was curated by me.  Fierce Fashion Blog is where I like to add some refinement to edgier looks.  At least that's my goal!

Inspiration Artwork

The current art selection is a French Hoover vacuum advertisement from the 1960s.  I thought we could have some fun with this bright whimsical poster.

The Co-Hosts
Salazar chose these comfortable-looking dark orange pants and added navy to the mix.  I really like the texture of her sueded loafers.  She added more orange along with green and yellow with her scarf.  See Salazar's entire post.

Daenel bypassed orange and went for a whimsical dotted yellow dress.  I like how she grounded the yellow with black and once again added boots to give her look some edge.   See Daneal's entire post.

Jodie brings us lots of orange with her cardigan and t-shirt.  She also had green beads, red glasses and blue jeans.  I like that her oranges don't match.  See Jodie's entire post.

While Kezzi's jumper is bold orange, how eye-catching are her brogues with their yellow heels and toes?  I like how Kezzie smartly added a longer blue shirt beneath her jumper, it adds an unexpected band of color, plus give the jumper extra length.  

Nancy is always smartly dressed and you will frequently see her wearing dresses and skirts.  This outfit is no exception.  Nancy used orange, black and beige from the artwork.  The background of black really lets her skirt have center stage.

My Look

My look, above, embraced the orange and olive green.  Burgundy is one of my color staples, so I was happy that the Free People top from nuuly included it, making my stompy Doc Martens and easy choice for footwear.  For more details see my Sour Orange post.
