Recycled Fashion 1980′s Edition: Splatter Paint

Share our Story

Remember the days of puffy paint and bedazzlers? Remember when splatter painted jeans were all the rage and we crimped our hair? Well designers remember and they’re recycling fashion from the 1980′s with splatter paint prints that are sure to bring back memories of childhood arts and crafts. Designer J. Mendel’s collection prominently features the splatter paint print which he callsĀ ”exploded-floral-print silk cady” and comes in five different designs including dresses and pantsuits. StunnersĀ Abigail Spencer, Leslie Mann, and Nina Dobrev are showing us how to wear the trend right.

How to Wear the TrendĀ 

If you’re not big on print, or maybe you’re afraid you’ll look like a Jackson Pollock painting, there are more subtle ways to rock this trend including the use of accessories. Two-toned leather cuffs for example provide the look of paint splatter without the head-to-toe print. Of course leather straps for cuff making are even cooler when they’re vegetable enzyme cured, chrome free, and eco-friendly.
