How To Wear a Denim Skirt With Patches? Summer Outfit Proposal

How to style a denim skirt with patches? Undoubtedly, there are many ways to do it, and today I'll present you with one of them. In my view, patches can make a denim skirt look even more urban, hip and youthful. If you are making the patches yourself or purchasing them with the intention of sewing them onto a denim skirt, pay attention to what kind of style you're after. It is worth noting that patches add additional texture and possibly colour  to the outfit. This is something you might want to keep in mind when styling your outfit. For example, here I styled this denim skirt with earthly colours. I did paired this denim skirt with animal print (a leopard print blouse) but I've kept it all in brown tones, so the look would look more orderly and put together.

Maybe I should also write about how to sew patches onto a denim skirt, since the floral patches on this denim skirt are DIY? Yes, I cut out some florals from a floral material I found at home and sewed them onto this skirt. A very simple DIY, but I think it brought life to this old pencil denim skirts. I don't have any up close photographs of this skirt, I can make them if you want. Basically, I sewed the patches regular style. It was fun doing something creative like this. I might have already mentioned this DIY project on blog. You know I'm always talking about DIY projects here, but hey that's what I like to do.  They're an important part of my style. I love customizing things, almost as much as I love making them. Do you love to customize clothing items? How do you go about it?

Anyhow, I always enjoy a subtle mix of print. That is what I was going for with this outfit. The floral patches are quite neutral, so I don't think they contrast with the animal print on the blouse too much. All the denim skirts I own are a bit longer, almost midi, I don't really have any short ones. I find the bellow the knee length super easy to style, so I often go for it. A pencil cut is always flattering. As it has been repeated in fashion circles ad nauseam, pecil skirts look great on any body type. I've bought this skirt in Ljubljana 10 years ago (a whole decade!), and I still wear which I guess speaks volumes in favour of buying a pencil denim skirt. I'm a big fan of high waist skirts (as you might have noticed) for very much the same reason. They are very versatile and soooo flattering. Besides, if you get tired of the high waist cut, you can always wear your top/blouse over the skirt, instead of tucking it in.

Recently I've illustrated one of my old denim skirts outfit (you can see which one here), and it made me realize how much I love wearing denim skirts. I would definitely wear something like that again. I think denim skirts look fantastic paired with black basic tops. I always love to see combo of a denim skirt and a white shirt as well. Sometimes you just can't beat the appeal of basic items. How do you like to see denim skirts worn? Do you wear them yourself? Any tips on style them? Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!



  1. The patches on your skirt are beautiful, wah a great DIY! I haven't really personalised many of my clothes, I'm not so crafty! I like the leopard print with the denim too :)

    Hope that you're having a great week so far! :)

  14. I really like the way you customised it! It looks really pretty! I have had 3 denim skirts over the years- the first was a fitted Button up mini, then a loose maxi in my 20's and now I have a midi-circle one which I bought in a charity shop- I like wearing it with a simple blouse or vest top! I am NOT good with pencil skirts though- they look awwwwwwwwwful on me!

    1. THANK YOU !!! And maybe you just need to find a right pencil skirt for you?

  15. That skirt is darling! Love the appliquéd details!

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…


I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…



As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy. 

Once again, here is a li…
