While the fashion scene boasts many a beautifully dressed gal, the art world is rife an entirely different level of avant-garde fabulousness. With one of the world’s top contemporary art fairs, Frieze London, kicking off today, our minds have turned to how to emulate the innately quirky cool of the gallery-hopping set. Whether its thick-rimmed frames or an architectural bag, we curated the pieces necessary to rock a museum-quality look.

The Art Of Fashion

Splashy Statement Coat

MSGM, $1023

Clearly this bold coat takes inspiration from the art world by way of painterly colors and textured jacquard.

Refined Blouse

Jill Sander Navy, $294

Temper a visually stimulating piece like the aforementioned coat with a neutral top. This one also pairs perfectly under jackets, sweaters or even dresses.

Brilliant Bauble

Baublebar, $44

Tie this ribbon necklace right below the collar of your shirt for a prim yet eye-catching effect.

High-Waisted Jeans

BLK DNM, $190

A versatile wash and elegant cut make these jeans the ultimate blank canvas to complement more extreme pieces.

Smoking Slippers

Cole Haan, $198

There’s nothing sleeker than a patent-leather walking shoe to get you through a day of touring museums.

Oversized Specs

Super for J.Crew, $169

Whether you're blind as a bat or blessed with 20/20 vision, chunky black glasses are an art-world must-have.

Architectural Accessory

Totokaelo, $1337

Leave it to Rick Owens to dream up a new take on the classic bucket bag. This clean silhouette is totally timeless yet undeniably unique.
