If you are looking to add a bit of colour and character to your wardrobe, all your clothes need is a little lick of paint.
This year, take some style-inspiration from your favourite artworks and wear your art on your sleeve.
Here are a few top fashion picks for all lovers of art.
For her1) ‘Throw Your Diamonds In The Sky If You Feel The Vibe’, Rad.co, £15.90 (was £19.90)
Combine rap and post-impressionism with this T-shirt from Rad. Part of the brand's wonderfully artistic 'Fly art' collection, Rad use Van Gogh's iconic 'The Starry Night' and lyrics from Kanye West's 'Diamonds from Sierra Leone' to create this tee. Now reduced to £15.90, it's a good price for a great piece.
Add some nostalgia to your look with these pieces inspired by paint-by-numbers kits. Rita Ora’s collaborative collection with Adidas Originals is a fun and fresh take on street-chic, transforming paint-by-numbers templates into graphic line designs.
Why paint on canvases when you can paint on your clothes instead? This Milk It leather jacket has painted detailing on its seams to add a simple, artistic touch to the classic item. Its price may be a little outside of most students' budgets, but its idea could be replicated by adding a bit of paint to your own clothes at home.

Go a little surrealist with this mini skirt from Redbubble. The figures from 'Golconda' that cover the skirt may be uniformly dressed in Magritte’s trademark bowler hat and suit, but this quirky skirt is sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
Introduce some modern street impressionism to your outfit with a piece from the ListerxVolcom collaborative collection. In the designs, Anthony Lister considers the modern cyber state, exploring the roles money and corruption have in society. The collection’s brilliant social commentary transforms the clothes into wearable art.
If you don’t fancy getting clothes with actual paint on them (like the Milk It jacket mentioned earlier), something with a paint-splatter print is a good alternative. Join the Hype and add a splash of art to your wardrobe with this jacket available from ASOS.
Gary Baseman’s collaboration with Dr. Martens is perfect for any art-lover. To celebrate 40 years of punk and Dr. Martens, the range includes Baseman’s alter-ego Toby in punk form. These pieces are vibrant and distinctive, combining iconic boots with iconic illustrations, creating a fashionably artistic collection.
This is a Really Good T-shirt. David Shrigley’s Fourth Plinth sculpture is spreading positive thoughts in Trafalgar Square with its huge, 7m high thumb-up; wearing the top from Baltic Mill lets you take Shrigley’s positivity with you and send good vibes to everyone you meet. Artistic and altruistic - it's the perfect T-shirt.
