SFMOMA Street Style Stars
Which do you prefer to watch—people or art? Why not both! We took a day trip down to San Francisco to check out the newly (ie. last year—we're late the the game. Shhh!) reopened Museum of Modern Art and took in everything it had to offer, including the artsy gals wandering the galleries. It makes complete sense that locals and tourists alike would want to dress for the occasion. I mean, think of all the 'grammable opportunities! There were too many to count. We fell hardest for the abstract paintings and minimal sculptures. But the dapper art connoisseurs stole the show! Check out the gals we developed ensemble crushes on and quietly interrupted to snap a quick pic. After all, street style is an art form in our book.
Henri Matisse, Femme au chapeau (Woman with a Hat), 1905
Katie kept it clean and crisp with solid staples like a black silk top (similar here) and whiskered denim (similar here), but punched up the look with leopard kicks (similar here) and a clutch portfolio (similar here). Gotta keep the essentials handy while perusing the galleries. You never know when inspiration could strike.
Ruth Asawa, Untitled (S.114, Hanging, Six-Lobed Continuous Form within a Form with One Suspended and Two Tied Spheres), ca. 1958
Morris Louis, Untitled, 1959-1960
We spotted Lindsey (@therunningwildflower) in front of her favorite piece. The contrast of her black and white ensemble next to Louis' plethora of colors makes her stand out for all the right reasons!
Andy Warhol, Dolly Parton, 1985
Cy Twombly, Second Voyage to Italy (Second Version), 1962
Classic in the back, Pop of color in the front! It makes perfect sense that we would spot @champagne_lipstick by Ellsworth Kelly's Spectrum I, 1953. She clearly understands the potent power of color. Blue coat- check (similar here), splash of yellow- check (similar here), practical black flats to pull it all together-check (similar here)! If you love rainbows, try wearing one. Now that's art!
@steeny._ stood out in a muted monochromatic ensemble. Winter whites (and ultra light grays) lighten dark, blustery days. White culottes (similar here) + a sensible sweater (similar here) = stand out stormy weather staples.
@steely._ rocking her own hand beaded necklace. We live for a subtle pop of color!
Tomas Saraceno, Stillness in Motion—Cloud Cities, 2016
Blake walking in the spiderwebs with black on black bottoms— a no frills favorite for any art enthusiast. We're getting major spidey vibes from this cheeky boot (similar here) and jet black denim (similar here) combo.
Dan Flavin, the diagonal of May 25, 1963, 1963
Bruce Nauman, Life Death/ Knows Doesn't Know, 1983
Ellsworth Kelly, Untitled (Mandorla), 1988
