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!

3 AMAZING CITIES TO VISIT IN HERZEGOVINA BESIDES MOSTAR

My last post was about beautiful historical town Mostar, but today I want to show you other amazing cities in the region of Herzegovina. You guys know how much I treasure Mostar and how important it is to me. Mostar is the largest and best known city in Herzegovina, the cultural and administrative centre of this region you might say. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that other cities don't deserve to be on your tourist radar as well. Honestly, one of the things that amazes me about Herzegovina is the diversity of its cities. Today I'll present three lovely cities to you: Ljubuški, Čapljina and Široki Brijeg. This is by no means a complete list. Another thing worth pointing out is that a lot of places  that get called cities, but in reality there are not that many cities in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina (only around 20). Popular tourist destinations such as Blagaj and Međugorje are often called cities while in fact they do not have a status of a city. 
As the name of …

Today I will take you on a virtual walk through Mostar city, more specifically through the old part of the town. Whether you're a history lover or not, the historical part of Mostar city will surely impress you. There is a reason why this place is so popular. It's an utterly beautiful area and it's extremely photogenic. I'm very excited I'll be sharing it with you today. Moreover, I'm going to give you some outfit tips for sightseeing the old bridge and the old city. As some of you know, I'm currently based in Mostar. One the benefits of being Mostar based is that the gorgeous historical centre is always available to me (Click here to see my most recent blog post shot at old bridge in Mostar) and that means I can give you good insider tips too.
These photographs were all taken last Sunday when we decided to go for a walk through the old city after mass. We walked from the Saint Peter and Paul church and monastery to the old bridge, through the old town and…

KATE KASIN LONG SEQUIN DRESS (REVIEW AND STYLING TIPS)

Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …
