True confession: in second grade I wore a black beret to the first day of school (my classmates were not impressed). Nothing  much has changed; I still aspire to dress like an artist. But at least I'm not alone; lately I'm noticing "artist's smocks" and "painter's dresses" everywhere. Here are seven garments guaranteed to make you look like you wield a paintbrush as a profession.  Above: From Momoko Suzuki's LA-based line Black Crane , the Painter Dress in 100 percent cotton features a frayed detail on the sleeve and bottom hem; $150 at Mohawk General Store. Above: Made of Japanese cotton in NYC, the La Garconne Painter Smock is available in black or chalk; $350 at La Garconne. Above: Pip-Squeak Chapeau's Sugar Coat , made in Brooklyn, is made of hand-dyed 100 percent cotton; $385 from Pip-Squeak Chapeau. Above: We've discussed Le Bouton before (see French-Inspired Fashion from Freedom, Maine ); Lisa Dorr's relaxed linen and cotton pieces have an artistic appeal. Above: Handmade in San Francisco, the Japanese Cotton Twill Work Smock is $360 at Mill Mercantile. Above: Christine and I both own UK designer Margaret Howell's Artist's Smock (quick, you can get one too if you act fast; it's on sale at La Garconne for $106.40; down from $152.)
