Two Ways To Wear An Off Shoulder Dress: Outfit Proposals

I promised to show you another way to style this white off shoulder dress /tunics, haven't I? I already wore it with white jeans, and today I'm going to show you how to wear it with a red floral skirt. This vintage floral skirt comes from a matching set (I'll show you more photographs bellow). If you own a matching set, there is no need to limit yourself to wearing it in the same way. You can always mix and match. For example, in the outfit you can see bellow, the floral details on the off shoulder dress/blouse match really well with the floral details on the skirt. It's a different floral print, but it looks nice worn together. At least I think so! White and red is always a winning combo if you ask me. There is something about the combination of those two colours that is always eye-catching. Throw in some blue and caramel details and I'm happy as I can be. I guess I'm just a girl who loves colours.

Wearing dresses as blouses is nothing new to me. I love dresses and skirts so it makes sense to pair them together. Do more of what you love, wear more of what you love. This habit of pairing skirts and dresses might even be the reason why I don't have many tops in my closet. Why should I buy top and blouses when I can tuck dresses into skirts. If you prefer to wear pants this is a little harder to do, but there is always a way. I wrote more about layering summer dresses in this post, so check it out if you're looking for some inspiration. My ideas for layering summer dresses include : wearing a vest with it, wearing a cropped top over it, wearing a body chain over it, wearing a scarf around your waist, wearing a scarf as a poncho , wearing a regular poncho, wearing a skirt over it, wearing dresses with jeans or jeggings,  wearing it with leggings, wearing it with shorts, wearing a crochet or sheer jacket over it. Do you have any ideas to share?


When it comes to styling this white off shoulder dress on its own, I opted to pair it with pink heels. What is more feminine than pink heels, right? White and pink colour combo is perfect if you want to create a softer look. I like both outfits, but I think the one with the red skirt is more versatile. On its own, this white dress is a bit short for my taste. Most of the time I wear it with leggings and jeans. But I does look cute on its own! 




If you scroll down, you'll see how I styled this vintage red skirt on its own. The photograph bellow shows me wearing it over a romper! I find rompers very practical in Summer, and I often pair them with skirts. Rompers can be used as tops in the same way as dresses. It's a great way to save on packing and closet space. It's fun figuring out different ways to wear something, isn't it!

Another way to style a red floral skirt is to pair it with stripes- see more here

  1. Hi dear? i love both styling. I like it better as a dress. I also think such pieces are so great to have in a wardrobe since they can be restyled in different ways. Kisses!

  2. That is such a lovely dress and it looks great with the skirt over it! It's a nice combination of colours as you said too. I like the skirt over dress trick if a dress is too short, haha! :) Easy to throw a maxi skirt over it.

    Hope that you are having a lovely week so far :)

  3. You shared some great tips on ways to style dresses. One that I also like is to wear a dress with a faux leather jacket. I feel like it gives it a different vibe.

  26. Hello Ivana, as usual I'm impressed by your creativity! You are right - a matching set must not necessarly be worn together and you had really a great idea to wear the white off-the-shoulder dress as tunic together with the skirt. The combination is beautiful and I love also the dress without any other garment (despite the beautiful pink shoes). Thanks for sharing your inspirations!

TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: TROGIR CITY (PART 1)

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…

HOW TO WEAR THE SCARF TREND FOR SPRING? 4 BASIC WAYS

Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit. 




ACCESSORIZING WITH SCARVES
A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

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…
