If you're on Instagram, you've probably fallen in love with a few fashion illustrations. These stylish doodles are popping up all over social media, and are the cutest way to document a killer outfit. Sure, superstar bloggers and celebs get drawn all the time, but I just learned about the coolest app that lets you become the star of your very own fashion illustration. Just download Chic Sketch in the app store, upload a photo, and you'll receive a one of a kind fashion illustration by the app's Co-Founder, Emily Brickel Edelson. How cool is that?! These would make awesome gifts, as well. 

I loved the striped summer styles featured in some of Emily's latest illustrations so much that I rounded up some similar pieces for you to shop below. Treat yourself to some new statement stripes, snap some #ootd shots, and prepare to see yourself as the CUTEST fashion illustration. 

Watercolor & Bernadette Pascua


Watercolor prints have become a big trend in fashion and home decor. Something about the fluidity of watercolor makes me feel relaxed. I'd love to try my hand at it again soon. I don't think I have painted with watercolors since I was in elementary school. If you are on the watercolor bandwagon, you are going to become obsessed with Bernadette Pascua like I am. She combines her art form of watercolor with the fashion world to create beautiful imagery for textiles and the pages of Harper's Bazaar.


If I could have a piece of clothing turned into a watercolor painting I would be a gingham oxford shirt. It's like my second skin - something I can always put on and feel like myself. It's also timeless and something that I will wear when I'm 80.

What about you? What article of clothing would you turn into a painting and why?

Fashion Illustration

If you're into fashion sketches or illustrations, there's quite a few blogs today that post a lot of art related content. I love Garance Dore's sketches and she even sells some of her drawings as prints! My two favorites of her are black and white: fashill2
