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!

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 …
