It's all about that flare ( Style We)

Let's talk about cropped flares. Have you ever tried wearing them? If you remember, I mentioned cropped and capri pants in my post yesterday. Then I said they are a great choice if you want to make your boots stand out more in these colder months. The same goes for shoes naturally. What ever type of shoe you choose to wear with capri and cropped trousers, you can be sure it will be in the spotlight. Now, I've always loved capris and I'm happy to see that flared capri pants are becoming a trend. Cropped flares  are nothing new to me. You saw me wear flared cropped pants at least a couple of times here on the blog. I love them but I have a confession to make. All those cropped flares I have and that I wear regularly are basically regular flares that look cropped on me. Because of my body shape (short torso as compared to legs), I often end up with pants that look cropped even when they're not. There is an expression for this in my hometown Split, we say you're missing a few dollars of pants (the expression probably dates from when people bought the material and made their clothes themselves so when those clothes weren't the perfect length, it was implied they were saving money on material) Well, good for me.   Now I can be trendy without looking I was trying to save a buck.  Anyway, I've prepared a few collages for you today, showing you different ways in which you can style your flares. All the items are from style we, or how they like to call themselves Online store for everyone .

                                                                CAPRI FLARES 

My first collage shows you three pairs of capri flared pants. I would say that these three pairs can be suitable for both special occasion and everyday wear, depending on other items and accessories you paired them with.

                                                                        ELEGANT FLARE STYLES 

The new collage shows more formal, classical and elegant choices. Two of these pairs are of normal length, only the middle pair (the white one) is slightly cropped. How do you like these? Would your wear them. The first pair looks like the most practical one to me, because it seems to be the easier to style, but the white and the lace pair are both lovely as well.

                                               FASHION FORWARD FLARE STYLES

Now, let's make time for some drama. The three pairs you can find below are very fashion forward. You would surely get noticed if you wore them. However, they can also be styled down and worn on everyday basis. If you want to see more casual pants for women you know where to look.

That's all for today. Thank you for reading. Here is a link to style we YouTube channel if you want to give it a look.

  8. Hahahaha, missing a few dollars of pants. That's a great way to describe it. Sometimes when people wear body con dresses or cut outs, they're asked if they didn't have enough fabric.
    I am a huge fan of flares. Even better cropped. You're so right, wearing flares puts one's shoes in the spotlight. Just like peplum, I feel like they work for a woman's body, creating an illusion of an hour glass. The slits make them even edgier. The 'dramaful' ones are also cool. Number 2 may be my favorite.
    I love capris 1 2 and 3. Can't believe they're from style we. I can't wait to go feast my eyes .
    Hope you had a great week Ivana. Mine was so busy and I'm welcoming the weekend with open arms as always. Hopefully I get some time to sit back and just do absolutely nothing.

    1. they've got some cool items at style we.

      Have a great and relaxing weekend!

  9. fantastic post :)

  10. Che belli gli ultimi!

  11. I have to admit, I was not the biggest fan of flared trousers, but your great collection thaught me a better, dear Ivana!

  12. Baš mi je simpatična pričica o uštedi novca na pantalonama :) Svakako ima smisla. Zanimljivo mi je i to što si ti "u trendu" sasvim sponatno :) Što se takvih pantalona tiče, oduvek su mi se dopadale. Imaju tu neku elegantnu nonšalantnost koju retko koji komad odeće može da stvori. Posebno mi se dopadaju bele iz drugog kolaža i crne sa resicama iz trećeg. Baš inspirativno :)

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
