Colouring books for adults is a hot trend that’s not going anywhere anytime soon and I can see why since colouring is fun, creative and a great distraction from stress. However, since I would prefer to colour in fabulous outfits than endless amounts of flowers, I found some cool colouring books for fashion lovers that I’m sure you will enjoy too.
Marie Perron’s ‘My Fashion Colouring Book’ is one of my favourites and features 100 designs which are inspired by top couture brands and current fashion designers. I love the sweet illustrations like the one above and am kind of hoping I can absorb some of the chic French style of this book whilst colouring – $27.99.
As they are the gatekeepers of all things stylish Vogue have got in on the colouring act with their own ‘Vogue Colouring Book‘ which is the first colouring book from British Vogue and was created by award-winning writer, fashion editor, curator and Royal College of Art Professor, Iain R Webb. This beautiful colouring book celebrates the centenary of British Vogue and its hand-drawn artworks are inspired by iconic images from the magazine in the 1950s including looks by key designers Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Chanel – $15.99.
Another gorgeous colouring book that celebrates vintage fashion is the ‘1960’s Fashion Colouring Book’ which is made of high-quality acid-free drawing paper and printed with exceptional designs in very light lines. It has been created that way so that depending on the techniques used, the original outline will be hardly visible after colouring and you can create a stunning artwork suitable for your wall – $39.95

Burberry muse and aspiring actress Cara Delevigne has been given the colouring book treatment with ‘Colour Me Good Cara Delevigne’ which features the gamine features and striking brows of the top model. It’s created by Mel Simone Elliott who has also done celebrity colouring books of Ryan Gosling and Harry Styles among others – $23.99.
If you prefer your fashion with a bit of silliness the ‘Fashion Animals Colouring Book’ may be more your thing. As you would expect it features smartly dressed animals whose dress sense would put some less sratorial humans to shame. It’s also a fun one that the little ones will enjoy too – $12.99
Fan of street style? Zoe de Las Cases has created the ‘Parisian Street Style’ colouring book which has a mix of full-page floral patterns, Paris cityscapes, picturesque streets and everyday fashion essentials. There are lots of sophisticated looks that you can colour while imagining strolling around the City of Light – $19.99.
Fancy choosing a new colour scheme for the Duchess of Cambridge’s wardrobe?
