3 Ways To Style a Yellow Checkered Skirt: Outfit Proposals

This yellow checkered skirt used to belong to my mother. Obviously, that makes it a vintage item and one to cherish. I had originally considered making an outfit proposal post with my old outfits, but then I realized that I have actually worn this yellow skirt at least three times this March. So, instead of sharing old outfits, I'm going to share new ones. Here are the three ways in which I wore this yellow skirt. If you have a similar item in your closet, let me know how you like to style it. Do you have any checkered items? Do you have any checkered items in yellow? Would you wear a yellow checkered skirt?




1. Wear it with a black leather jacket and biker boots


If you want to go easy with the colour, why not opt for black clothing items to go along your yellow skirt. You know what they say, black is always a good idea. Black and yellow colour combos have been popular lately, and I have actually illustrated 3 runaways looks in this colour sheme (you can see them here and here ). Long story short, a lot of brands (Versaci, Louis Vuitton etc.) have turned to the yellow checkered trend. Pairing yellow with black is quite popular too, so taking that black leather jacket out of your closet seems like a good choice. If you want to make your outfit more casual and dressed down, opt for biker boots. Not only are they comfortable to wear, they also allow you to get that rocker chic vibe on.

2. Layer a long cardi under the leather jacket to make it more subtle in appearance

If you are not comfortable wearing such a bold print, you can always layer a coat or a long cardi over it. For example, to create a 'peek a boo' effect all you need is a long asymmetrically cut cardigan or a kimono. This way you can feel more comfortable wearing such a bold print. Bonus points for layering and keeping warm.

3. Pair it with a checkered jacket for a complete checkered look

I wore almost exactly the same outfit a few years ago and it is a look I'm only glad to repeat. I'm a big fan of green (as you know) and there is something very powerful about the combination of yellow and green. Mixing prints with prints is always fun, right? This outfit is also suitable for those spring days that still feel like winter, you know the kind of chilly days some of us have had plenty of lately.

  3. That is such a versatile skirt, and these are great outfits with it! I don't have any prints like this in my wardrobe, although I have a lot of stripes, haha!

    I think I like the second outfit just a little more - you layer so well.

    Hope you are having a good week so far! After being so busy last week, I'm enjoying a relatively quieter week and looking forward to the Easter long weekend.

  6. Above all else, I love your suggestion of pairing a yellow check skirt with a leather jacket and biker boots - such a brilliant, fierce combination! The outcome is such a stylish outfit and one that's totally transitional for this time of year. Looking so great Ivana, have a wonderful weekend ahead! :)

  7. Heyyyy you are back with outfit posts, yay! I just adore that black and yellow outfit as it's so edgy and fun. As for the green and yellow combo that you mentioned is powerful - perhaps they are also colors Mother Nature is wearing herself? Heheh. I love the scenery there and I thank you for sharing a peek of it. Would love to see more of your Spring outfits and other projects :) Have a happy day beauty <3

    1. maybe that's the reason:) Thank you, the scenery is lovely indeed. I'm fortunate to live in such a pretty country. There will probably be more spring outfits soon.

  8. Io trovo che la tua gonna sia molto di moda; quest'anno va tantissimo il quadrettato anche per la bella stagione ed il giallo è una scelta davvero moderna, nonostante sia un capo vintage!
    Mi piace soprattutto abbinata alla giacca di pelle nera, trovo che quello sia il look che la mette più in risalto! :)
    Baci!

  12. Your yellow checkered skirt looks pretty styled with the black tights. My favourite out of the three outfits is the third one featuring the green checkered jacket over the white top. The outfit photos you took by the river that overflowed its banks are great.

  15. Dearest Ivana,
    All three outfits are great in their own special way! I love the versatility of your skirt! Thanks for linking to my action ANL! Here is once again the link to ANL: http://rostrose.blogspot.co.at/2018/03/anl-27-tomorrow-haben-wir-eine-zukunft.html
    Why? Because Your post today also fits well with ANL, because there is the additional challenge "1 part - 3 looks" - and that's exactly what you created: 3 wonderful and very different looks from a skirt!
    Hugs from Austria,

  22. Ivana, you look terrific! :D

    Actually I remember that you left a comment on my trend report where you highlighted this trend on the Versace collection, it is the greatest pattern don't you think? The best thing about the checked pattern design is that it will always be on style despite the season of the year and we can use it on summer or in fall or in any kind of weather :) Love all the options but the first one is definitely my favorite!

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…

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…
