Fashion illustration of the day (olive flared jeans: green trend report)

I'm back with another original fashion illustration and design (the medium is watercolour on paper). This illustrated outfit is all about layering. Besides olive flare jeans, our blonde is sporting a jacket, a turtleneck and a cardigan over it. A nice faux fur scarf is a great way to add some drama into a winter outfit. In addition, she opted for black high heels, beanie and a little bag to dress up those jeans a little. What do you think about this outfit proposal? Would you wear something like this? Do you like the combination of colours (brown, dark orange, olive green and black)? Do you like pointy heels? I've just got a pair of pointy heels yesterday. You know, I've started to actively search for (and sometimes even attempting making) things I illustrate. I guess that is a proof how creating art can set our creative juices going. It can all be connected you know. Creative work that is. We don't have to put borders everywhere and divide everything all the time. Sometimes we should just let things flow and stop worrying about whether something is considered banal or deep. Perhaps there are no deep or shallow jobs or hobbies, there are only deep or shallow people. Life is what you make of it.

Sometimes I like to add backgrounds to my fashion illustration. Location illustrating is something I want to work on more this year. The background for this illustration is based on Croatian coastline, more precisely municipality Lastovo (google it if you want to see more). Lastovo municipality consists of 46 islands and it is a part of Dubrovnik- Neretva county in Croatia. The largest of these islands is Lastovo. The name of the largest town on Lastovo island is also Lastovo. This is sometimes the case with Croatian islands, the largest settlement being named the same as the island (for example the famous island Hvar). There are more than a thousand islands in Croatia (the number varies according to classifications criteria and whether or not you count small islands but it is a big number), so if islands are your thing, Croatia is a pretty good choice.

  1. Belle questi illustrazioni

  2. Your drawings really remind me of my moms, I forgot to mentioned this previously, one of the reasons why I love them so much too.
    I can imagine this on a model all cozy with those winter layers ^^

  3. I love a flaired pant! Great styling! It is inspiration for an outfit. You should consider fashion designing. You're good :D

  4. Bè direi che scegliendo il mare della Croazia come sfondo per la tua illustrazione non avresti potuto trovare di meglio!
    La Croazia ha un mare meraviglioso e le isolette sono una più bella dell'altra, ricorda molto la Grecia!
    Bellissimo il contrasto di colori che hai creato! :)

  5. So nice

  6. Great post.

  7. While I may not be a fan of the cold weather, I do enjoy layering as it poses a fun and creative fashion challenge to balance style with staying warm . This outfit you illustrated is a nice combination of colors and I'm imagining the textures would be quite fun as well :)

  8. I like islands. Lastovo looks nice.

  9. Very nice! Looks incredible!
    Happy Wednesday, babe!

  13. Dear Ivana, thank you for sharing another beautiful fashion illustration! I totally would wear such a look and it makes me smile that I'm wearing today a similar look (I showed it already last year on my blog): Yellow fur scarf, black pants, black ankle boots and grey cardigan :) Have a wonderful start into the weekend!

  18. LOVE LOVE LOVE the outfit you're proposing for this illustration, is beyond amazing and I have seen a lot of jeans and pants similar to this, the unfortunately thing is that you need to be kinda tall in order to look good of them don't you think? :( Anyway I think nowadays we have a lot of different proposals when it comes to clothes in order to stop wearing the same kind of pants :p


  19. great design Ivana. i love this looooonnnng scarf...;-)

    i also like the background of this painting. looks like a beautiful waterside.

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 …
