11 Ways To Style a Dusty Pink Skirt For Spring (Inspiration For Both Warm and Cold Spring Days)


Spring is in the air. Maybe not quite literally. As I explained, we have snow in the air right now, but it doesn't matter. The calendar says that Spring is here and I want to believe the calendar. So, here are 12 ways to style a pink dusty skirt. I think most of these tips can be applied to any pink skirt really, but I choose dusty pink for a reason. The reason is that I have one dusty pink skirt in my closet that I wear all the time. I must have worn it for a hundred times. I think I only paid something like ten euros for it. Best purchase ever! I wore this skirt with everything, from high heels to sneakers. I wore it when I went hiking and I wore it for weddings. It's one versatile skirt. Makes me think I need more dusty pink items. Who knows maybe I even have some in my closet? I need to look for them.

Bottom line is that by wearing a certain clothing item often, learning how to restyle it in different ways we can end up shopping less often and being less wasteful. Shopping our closets is one of the easiest ways to start being more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Wearing something just once or twice and getting rid of it is so wasteful. Plus, building up a relationship with our favourite clothing items can be a lot of fun. So, here are my suggestions for restyling one particular clothing item.

1. Wear a dusty pink skirt with a floral blouse

Powder pink matches most floral prints quite well. Here I paired it with a dress not a floral blouse but you get an idea, especially since you can't really see it's a dress. I often wear dresses under skirts, or you could also say that I wear skirts over dresses. The reasons for this is quite simple. This way you don't have to bother about undershirt and the lines your underwear will be less visible. I mean you can also wear a underskirt for that, but I know most people don't wear underskirts any more.

2. Style a faux fur coat over a dusty pink skirt

Give me any excuse to wear a faux fur coat and I'm going to take it. This was one of my all time favourite outfits. Perhaps because it was all about layering. I wore a t shirt under a striped cardigan and a faux fur coat. Honestly, one of the most feel good outfits that I have ever worn. Some would say that black doesn't match dusty pink well, and in a way it is true. These two colours do contrast. However, keep in mind that fur (be it faux fur or ordinary fur) often has a particular shine to it. The texture of fur (synthetic or natural) makes it not only visually interesting but somewhat ever colour- changing, and this helps with the colour matching. In a way, fur is multicultured. Have you ever noticed that?

3. Wear a dusty pink skirt with a bright yellow top

Why not spice up things a little? This yellow top was designed by me and made by my mother. Way back when I was in high school, I would design things and my mother would sew them. Thanks mom! That was always awesome. This outfit is more appropriate for warmer than colder spring days obviously, but I think it's pretty cute and I plan to rewear it.

4. Pair a dusty skirt with sneakers and a red blazer

Another outfit that is all about colour contrasting, but boy did I love it or what! It was such a comfy outfit to wear. I loved the contrast between this blazer and dusty pink skirt. Some people don't like to mix red with pink, but I love it.

5. Wear a dusty pink skirt with a checkered shirt

Here is a suggestion for warm Spring days. Why not try pairing a dusty pink skirt with a nice pair of pink sunglasses and a black and white checkered shirt? In retrospective, I think this outfit was very cute. The more you think about it, the more you realize how versatile any clothing item can be. This is especially the case with skirt and dresses.

6. Wear a dusty pink skirt with a faux leather coat

Here is a suggestion for spring days that might be on the cooler side. I wore this outfit recently.  There are a lot of colours in this outfit and they do clash a bit but I liked wearing it and that's what matters. I actually think that the colour of this faux leather coat matches the dusty pink nicely. 
7. Wear a dusty pink skirt with a neon green shirt and a tweed jacket

Because mixing styles and textures is fun. This outfit was very comfy but at the same time felt elegant. I would totally wear it again, so I guess it was a winner.

8. Pair a dusty pink skirt with a blue vintage peter pan collar shirt

A dusty pink skirt is pretty much a girly choice. Why not pair it with something that is just as romantic and girly? Why not opt for a peter pan collar shirt? I love these kind of 'easy to wear' but girly and pretty spring styling.

9. Pair a dusty pink skirt with a red bomber jacket

Because nobody will expect you to. In this outfit, I made a contrast between the top and the bottom of the outfit by pairing a sporty top with a more dressed up bottom (heels and tights). Or maybe I just stole this jacket from my husband. I can't tell with certainty. It was back in 2013 guys. I have a good memory, but that's too much detail.

10. Wear a pink cardigan over a dusty pink skirt. Match different shades of pink.

Matching different shades of pink is always fun, right? Why not pair your dusty pink skirt with a more vibrant shade of pink? I will probably wear this combo again some time.

10. Wear a dusty pink skirt with a green jacket

Because green and pink make me think of Spring. They might not be an obvious combo, but it is something I like.

11. Wear a dusty pink skirt with a ruffled skirt

Why not dress up a little? Open toe heels are always a good choice and when you pair them with a ruffled skirt, you get one dressed up outfit. I need to remember to wear this again. In this outfit, the colours are coordinated (for a change) and I can see how it makes it look more polished.


That would be all for today. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Let me know if you would like to see similar posts in the future, the kind where I show you how to wear a same clothing item in different ways. I've done these sort of posts in the past and I think they're fun to make (and hopefully also to read) so I might be making one soon!

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
