Do you like wearing hats? ( fashion illustration of the day)/ Volite li nositi šešire? (modna ilustracija dana)

Today I'm sharing another fashion illustration with you. The medium is, once again, watercolour on paper. Our lovely lady is wearing a hat and a faux fur coat.  Some people claim that the hat is the most noticeable fashion accessory one can wear. On one level this makes sense. We know that human communication is predominately visual. Moreover, reading facial expressions is something we all do. In other words, when we look at a person the first things what we will pay attention to is the face.  Our faces find a fundamental role in communication. We can look at fashion as a form of communication too. I'm not sure would I call the hat the most noticeable fashion accessory, but I would agree that it is one of the most noticeable. I think that everything we wear in the vicinity of our face is something that will draw the eye. So, I would say that scarves, hair decorations, headbands, earrings and necklaces are just as noticeable as hats. When we talk to one another, we're usually looking one another in the face. Obviously, those items that are near our face are those that will get noticed the most. Having that in mind, hats can indeed be a very useful accessory. What do you think about wearing hats? Do you like wearing hats?

Danas dijelim još jednu modnu ilustraciju s vama, ponovo akvarel. Naša dama nosi šešir i kaput od umjetnoga krzna. Neki tvrde da je šešir najuočljiviji modni detalj koji se može nositi. U jednu ruku, to ima smisla. Znamo da je ljudska komunikacija većinom temeljena na vizualnom. Zapravo svi mi čitamo izraze s lica. Drugim riječima, kada gledamo u neku osobu, prva stvar koju primijetimo je lice. Naša lica imaju bitnu ulogu u komunikaciji. Možemo gledati modu kao vid komunikacije. Nisam sigurna bi li šešir nazvala najviše primjetnim modnim dodatkom, ali je sigurno jedan od najviše primjetnih. Mislim da je sve što nosimo u blizini lica ono što će najprije privući oko. Tako da bi rekla da su šalovi, ukrasi i trake za kosu, naušnice i ogrlice, jednako primjetne kao i šeširi. Očito je da je sve ono što nam se nalazi oko lica zapravo ono što najviše dolazi do izražaja. Imajući to u vidu, šeširi stvarno mogu biti koristan modni dodatak. Što vi kažete? Volite li nositi šešire?


  1. I would say to some extent I agree with the idea of hats being the most noticeable fashion accessory - especially if the brim falls close to the eyes! Your watercolour illustrations are so dreamy, and I enjoy them the most when they showcase specific details, such as this flamboyant burgundy hat! I hope you're having a lovely week so far Ivana.. :)

  2. hi Ivana! once again very lovely. kisses

  3. dama w futrze i kapeluszu - super! :)

  4. I love wearing hats, this is wonderful. Hats can enhance a look so much x

  5. Loving those illustrations <3


  6. Io adoro i cappelli (ma in generale tutti gli accessori che si possono mettere in testa) e non solo perchè tengono al caldo o al fresco la testa ma soprattutto perche fanno da "cornice" al viso!
    Bellissima illustrazione,Ivana, molto elegante! i piacciono moltissimo i colori che hai scelto! :D

  7. Dearest Ivana,
    basically I find hats fit me well - look here:
    Unfortunately it is often here so windy that hats are quite impractical. Beanies and caps are better "sitting" on the head. But on not very windy autumn days I like to wear my hat.
    Your hat-drawing is fabulous!

    1. I love that black hat you're wearing on that photo. What is more, I love how you tied a scarf around it. I do that too.

  8. Love it!


  9. Divna je i jako mi se sviđa kombinacija ovih jesenskih nijansi! :) Ja volim šešire, ali sam ih prije nosila puno češće nego sad, nekako sam kroz godine više postala ljubitelj toplih kapica - valjda i činjenica da sam strašno zimogrozna ima nešto s tim :D

  10. Ohh yes I love it!! Amazing painting btw!



  11. I guess hats are the one that people noticed easily as it's right in your face but for me I always take note of fine necklaces, earrings and rings. It's the fine and smaller details that I appreciate.

    1. thanks Shireen, I also appreciate the finer details more.

  12. I enjoy wearing hats a lot! x

    Have a great day,

  13. Beautiful Lady!
    Honestly, I have never had a hat but I always want to)) Thanks for sharing Ivana))

  14. Lovely illustration! I like hats but I don't think they really suit me haha :) xx

    1. maybe you just haven't found the right one for yourself.

  15. Ponovo moram reći da predivno crtaš!Ja uopšte ne znam lica da crtam, to mi najgore ide. Svaka čast draga:*

  16. I adore wearing hats! I have many and was thinking it is almost getting towards hat weather!x

  17. For me it depends on the hat how much attention it gets. Some pale, sandy brown little chapeaux may go unnoticed but a pretty one like the one you have rendered is unavoidable to the eyes. Fashion really does have the power to direct our gazes.

    All Things Bright and Lovely

  18. I love hats! Beautiful illustation as always:*

  19. Mnogo mi se svidja ilustracija! Veliko DA za sesire, volim da ih nosim i izuzetno su zenstveni i svakako privlace paznju.

    Lep dan ti zelim

  20. That kind of accessories can really say a lot :)

  21. Very classy lady! Looks Mediterranean a lot :-)
    I love to wear beanie and this kind of hat which is called fisherman's hat :D

  22. Yes, hats have a way of being right in our line of vision. I personally love wearing hats! They can be a fun accessory but they can also make an outfit look more polished which I really like.

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
