What’s a wardrobe without a little humor and wit? Boring, that’s what! If your wardrobe is teetering on the edge of monotony, then maybe you should consider what one of these trompe l’oeil pieces could do for your closet. Trompe l’oeil means to trick the eye, and in fashion, it’s a witty way to add interest in an outfit, such as a collar that’s not really there, or a necktie that’s actually knit into the sweater. Fun, right? Check out the trompe l’oeil fashion finds in the slideshow below!
