Fashion Coloring Books for Adults
Dover has dozens of titles and Vogue has now come out with a few new fashion coloring books as well. We think all the fashion-forward colorists out there are sure to find a style that appeals to them.
The hand-drawn artworks are inspired by iconic images from British VOGUE in the 1950s – an era of hats and matching gloves, haughty elegance and hourglass silhouettes (a period that continues to inspire contemporary designers including Miuccia Prada and Dolce & Gabbana). Click to Order Amazon.
We received this new coloring book last week and just love it! Some of the pages have not only fashions but intricate backgrounds while others focus strictly on the clothes. For you fashionistas out there this book is perfect for you.
Illustrations, adapted from Godey’s Lady’s Book, a rare nineteenth-century fashion magazine, provide authentic views of evolving Victorian modes of apparel — from lace-edged necklines and elongated bodices to fitted bonnets and extravagant bustles.
30 ready-to-color illustrations depict lavish dresses and gowns of velvet and damask; smart riding outfits trimmed with braid and gilt; an elegant cashmere shawl, children’s outfits; as well as hair ornaments, footwear, and other accessories.
A lovely collection that offers an authentic glimpse of what well-dressed ladies and youngsters of the Victorian era were wearing, this is a must-have for coloring book fans, costume designers, and cultural historians.
Twenty-six archival magazine covers from 1912 to 1932, by ten celebrated illustrators living here and abroad, take you back to a more playful and whimsical moment of boas, bows, hats and headpieces, fans, pearls and gloves, and even exotic animals. Coloring book fans of all ages can try their hand at the Art Deco patterns and letters from A to Z and the lively drawings of women dressed for the task at hand, whether it is driving their own car, pruning morning glories in the garden, feeding a dragon, steering a gondola, sitting on a crescent moon, perched on a peacock or riding a zebra—side-saddle, of course. This is the Vogue woman as liberated, stylish, and always dressed for adventure. Click to Order: US UK Canada

From Twiggy and Mary Quant to The Beatles and Peter Blake, the ’60s were the years fashion, music and art collided in a colorful, effervescent youthquake. As one VOGUE cover line from 1960 read: ‘Young Ideas, Young looks, YOUNG!’ The defining mood of the decade was an effortless cool attitude – breezy, carefree and always looking for the next party.

A friend of mine has this book and it’s really fun. It’s a Creative Haven fashion coloring book so the images are one-sided and perforated. Based on fashions from steampunk literature, these 31 original designs combine Victorian-era clothing with goggles, clocks, and other technological accessories. The illustrations’ intricacy and post-apocalyptic air offer mature colorists creatively challenging and unique coloring experiences. Click to Order Amazon US
