Trend: Cameos and SilhouettesAuthor:Lily Gahagan
This trend has been hanging around for the past few months, but, perhaps because it is such a classic style, it doesn’t feel remotely outdated yet. After all, the art of creating a silhouette is as old as time, capturing a person’s likeness long before cameras came around. To this day it enchants, able to turn from romantic and nostalgic (a customized cameo), to bold and modern (a series of anonymous silhouettes). Either way the look is graphic, eye-catching, and–though steeped in tradition–anything but dated. Here are a few that get it just right:
