How to wear big puffed sleeves? / Kako nositi velike napuhane rukave?

 How to wear big puffed sleeves without looking like a Disney princess? Not that there is anything wrong with looking like a Disney princess, but maybe you have been wondering how to wear dramatically puffed sleeves on everyday basis. Actually, I've been asking myself the same question. I'm very keen on this trend of oversize sleeves, but figuring out how to wear them in a casual way proved to be something of a challenge. When I bought this dress ( I'm not very keen of shopping, but when I saw this one I just had to have it), the answer presented itself. Denim. Yes, denim. That magical ingredient that instantly makes every outfit look more casual. Nothing helps dress down a look than a piece of denim, be it a pair of jeans (or jeggings in this case) or a denim vest. 

I knew that this dress won't be long enough for my liking when I bought it, but I figured that I can wear it with jeans...and what you know, it looks great worn with jeggings. It looks like I found my puffed sleeves item for this Spring. Now, that I think of it, I also have one vintage blouse with puffed sleeves. You can see how I styled it with jeans here. What do you think about this Spring/ Summer trend? Do you fancy dramatic sleeves? Will this trend find its way to you closet? Do you like this trend of voluminous sleeves?  Let me know in the comments. One more thing...the location is once again restaurant/motel Kolo located on the banks of Buna river. My happy place.

Kako nositi velike napuhane bez da izgledate kao disney princeza? Ne da ima nešto loše u tome da izgledamo kao disney princeza, ali možda ste se pitati kako nositi dramatično napuhane rukave na svakodnevnoj bazi. Zapravo i sama sam se to pitala. Jako mi se sviđa ovaj trend napuhanih rukava, ali smisliti kako ih nositi na ležeran način pomalo je ispalo izazov. Kada sam kupila ovu haljinu ( nisam ljubitelj kupovine, ali kada sam vidjela ovu haljinu morala sam je imati), odgovor se sam pojavio. Denim. Da, denim. Taj magični sastojak koji svaku odjevnu kombinaciju pretvara u ležernu. Ništa ne pomaže učiniti kombinaciju ležernijom od komada denima, pa bio to par traperica (u ovom slučaju imitacija traperica, tkz. jeggings, su u pitanju) ili prsluk od denima. 


Znala sam da mi ova haljina neće biti dovoljno duga (za moj ukus), ali činilo mi se da je mogu nositi s trapericama...i što znate, baš dobro izgleda nošena s tajicama koje su imitacija traperice. Izgleda sam da pronašla svoj komad  napuhanih rukava za ovo proljeće. Sada kada razmislim, imam jednu vintage bluzu s napuhanim rukavima. Možete vidjeti kako sam je nosila ovdje.  Što vi mislite o ovom proljetno-ljetnom trendu? Sviđaju li vam se ovakvi dramatični rukavi? Hoće li ovaj trend pronaći put u vaš ormar? Volite li ovaj trend rukava velikoga volumena? Dajte mi do znanja u komentarima. Još nešto...lokacija je još jednom restoran/motel Kolo koji se nalazi na obali rijeke Bune. Moje sretno mjesto.

  6. Puffed sleeves are a really chic and feminine detail and this dress has the perfect amount without being OTT. The dress really makes a style statement from the color to the silhouette to the details and I love that you chose to style it with jeggings!

  7. Jaooo pa ova haljinica je ko stvorena za tebe, i još u žarko rozoj nijansi...ma oduševljena sam, koja savršena kombinacija za kraj tjedna! :) Ja sam nekidan probala neki traper haljinicu tih ogromnih rukava i dečko i ja smo odvalili od smijeha koliko mi je grozno stajala tako da mislim da ću ovaj trend zaobići iako mi se jako sviđa :) I lokacija ti je divna, baš djeluje kao pravo opuštajuće mjesto za popiti kavicu i uživati u danu!

    1. možda je bio krivi kroj i tvoja haljinica te još čeka...čini mi se da s ovim rukavima ne ide svaki kroj, baš treba pronaći nešto što će nam pristajati.

  13. E' davvero delizioso quell'abito Ivana!!! E quanto ti sta bene!
    Anche ame piacciono tantissimo le maniche a palloncino e sono d'accordo con te sul fatto che l'abbinamento ideale per sdrammatizzarle sia con il denim, ma io crredo che tu possa tranquillamente metter quel vistino anche da solo con un paio di ankle boots o di pumps e staresti benissimo!
    Buona Pasqua tesoro!
    Baci!

  16. I have always felt this way about puffed sleeves, they seem to be so difficult to wear (but they do look so lovely on you, hun!). I already have pretty broad shoulders (I think!) and I have always felt that puffed sleeves just make me look wider, if that makes sense! I had a dress with puffed sleeves once and although it was gorgeous, I didn't wear it much for that reason. Puffed sleeve tops seem to be a lot easier to style, however! You are right, that top goes so well with the jeggings, and I simply adore that pink colour! It's so feminine, lovely and very spring-like. I can see why that restaurant is your happy place, hun, it looks so peaceful there with so many beautiful sights around! :) Sorry for being a little quiet lately, lovely. I took a little blogging/social media break, but I'm back now and catching up with all your lovely posts this evening. <3 I hope you're having a fantastic Easter weekend! xoxo

      Yes, this spot is absolutely my happy place. The views are so lovely...and I always have fun feeding the ducks. As soon as they see me, they fly right towards me...I think they remember me or something:)

  38. Ivana! You are looking tres chic in this pouffy sleeve mini. I'm in love with the color and the fit. You know whats funny, I was going to wear a white dress with big sleeves to church on Easter Sunday and my daughter said the sleeves made it inappropriate for church cos they're so out there. Great idea to pair it with jeans and omg jeans would be the perfect item of clothing to tone it down some. Leggings or tights too. You look so pretty and so chic! Hope you had a great Easter.

  56. Hi Ivana :) Personally I'm not huge fan of puffed and oversized sleeves, because I'm petite (eventually oversized ruffles will be great alternative for me:P), BUT you look terrific in this dress, that beautiful shade of pink suits to you and your skin's tone perfectly, you should wear more often such a great and vivid colors :D What's more, I'm more than sure that you chose great decision to style that dress with denim - you're right, denim makes that fancy dress more casual. :) One more thing - I really like location of your photos and it seems that you and your husband spent lovely and peaceful time there :)
    Have a great evening, Ivana! :)

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

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. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
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.

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

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
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 …
