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. 




AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER

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.


RED AND GREEN 

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive colours? My answer: it's never too early to wear what we like. While the combo of red and green makes me think of Christmas, it's a colour match that can work well in any season. Bellow you can see one of my most recent illustrations that features a red and green outfit. The illustration started its life as a sketch but then I decided to add watercolour. Anyhow, this fashion illustration depicts a girl wearing a red dress and a green vest, paired with a brown bag, black boots and tartan tights. Isn't this a great idea for an autumn styling? I need to buy myself some plaid leggings or tights. It is a great way to add pattern into our wardrobe, I don't know how I didn't think of it before.



RED AND BLUE

Red and blue can be such an eye-catching colour combo. Perfect for creating uniform looks, this colour combo can look very glam if you opt to make it more feminine. Bellow you can see my mixed media (watercolour and coloured pencil) fashion illustration of a red and blue sheer dress. I do like the sheer trend, especially when it comes to gowns. I think a dress like the one I illustrated would be a perfect choice for getting all dolled up. The festivities are not that far away, and I'm already dreaming of the perfect dress. I wish there was a way for this sheer dress with flower applications to manifest itself magically in my closet. However, who knows? I might find the time to sew it some day.





GOLD AND BLACK

There is something royal about the combo of gold and black, isn't it? I envisioned this gorgeous gown with yellow applications to fit that royal vibe that's been trending (you know with all the historical TV shows and films that are coming out). Isn't this extravagant gown gorgeous? Truth be told, gold and black are not the only colours I had in mind. If you look at this watercolour painting closely, you'll be able to spot red, blue and orange colours as well, but gold and black are the dominant colours for this dress. I actually painted this dress over a fashion illustration I already shared because  I was short on time but I like how it worked out. It's an improvement, I'd say.




BURGUNDY AND PINK 

Burgundy and pink may seem like an usual colour combo, but it's not that hard to pull off. For example, bellow you can see me wearing a burgundy turtleneck underneath a pink poncho blouse. Paired with jeans, this colour combo doesn't look too extravagant. If you pay attention to the fashion illustration I'm holding, you'll be able to see one similar outfit: a burgundy blazer paired with a pink top and jeans. My tip of the day: when you're not sure whether you can pull some colour combo in an outfit, reach for a nice pair of jeans because they have a way of balancing it all out. That's what I did, both in my illustrated outfit and in the real one. 








MINT AND BLUE

What to say about green and blue? These two gorgeous colours come in so many lovely shades. If you take another look at the above shared outfit, you might notice the other fashion illustration I'm holding, the one depicting a green and a blue outfit. Well, besides that illustrated look, I also have an outfit proposal featuring a combination of these two colours. This time I opted for a vintage mint blazer, a white tunics and a pair of jeans. I wore the blazer over the shoulders because it was a warm day and because I'm a fan of this unpractical trend.







YELLOW AND PINK 

I promised to show you a way to style this yellow jumpsuit in autumn, haven't I? Well, I decided to pair it with pink! I wore a pink cardigan over it and choose some baby pink heels to finish the outfit. If you're looking for a feminine and dressed up way to wear a jumpsuit in autumn, try pairing it with a nice pair of heels and a cardigan. If you want the outfit to be super girly, why not give Barbie colours a try? Jumpsuits can be so versatile. If you're looking for a way to wear your summer jumpsuits in autumn, layering should do the trick. We should take advantage of this period while we still get away with styling summer items because it won't last for long. 





That would be all for today. As you had the chance of seeing, the colours of autumn inspire me to opt both for traditional and non-traditional autumn colours. It's all about having fun with exploring  different colours and shades. How have you been doing? Are you enjoying autumn? Are you feeling inspired? Do you love to wear colour? If yes, what colours do you opt for this time of year? 

Thank you for reading and commenting. Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Yes I totally agree that of all the seasons, autumn has one of the most beautiful colour palettes by far. In NY, we're still waiting for the leaves to fully turn. There is still much greenery but I guess I can't complain about that. Your illustrations are gorgeous and your color combinations are inspired. I actually love burgundy and pink together and think it's a totally under appreciated pairing ;p

  3. Your illustrations are lovely, especially that floral embellished dress - it would be amazing if you did sew it! :) I really like your outfit ideas too, great colour combos. That yellow floral jumpsuit with the pink is my favourite though, what a standout outfit! :)

    Hope that you have a lovely weekend ahead of you! Busy day for me today, but hopefully will get to relax tomorrow! :)

  23. Hello dear Ivana,
    I like your autumn-inspired illustrations and your "real worn" outfits very much. If you ask me, which of the illustration-dresses I would prefer to wear, I think it's the maxidress of your first drawing. I think this would be a wonderful festive dress for me :-)) And my favourite "real"outfit is the yellow jumpsuit with the pink cardigan - this is a great firework of colors!
    Hugs my dear,

  26. So I appologize for not having commented on here for a while, but I had no idea that the start of school would have taken up so much of my free time. That being said, I now know what I need to do to prep for next year better. Okay, on a different note, your red and blue colour combination is phenominal and very much reminds me of a dress by the brand Costarellos. Beauitful work! I also love the way you described the fall colours and atompshere of autumn having to do with pomegranates and grapes. This sure does make the season all the better. I hope you have a fabulous week ahead <3

  38. You are right about Autumn being stunning. And you look stunning too especially in that yellow jumpsuit! I so love the wrap neckline and I find it super feminine and classy. Your illustrations and color pairings are very Autumnal as well, and the paintings are really eye-catching. I've not been eating pomegranate since forever and looking at the fruit in the photo is making me want some. I hope you are doing well there Ivana. Stay beautiful :)

  39. So many beautiful outfits, Ivana, both on paper and in real life. I love how you combine 3D elements with your paintings - it adds such depth. The black and gold (multi-coloured) outfit really resonates for me, the textures, the colour combination, so beautiful. Thanks for sharing these.

  46. You are so right, dear Ivana, autumn really has the most beautiful colour palette. And you know not only to draw in amazing colour combination but also to wear them! As you know I'm a huge colour lover and therefore I adore what you show. Your illustrations turned out great and hopefully one day you will be really able to wear these amazing dress you hope finally to possess. I love also the outfits you created. Corresponding your question: in autumn I love the same colours as usual and opt especially for colours like burgundy, brown and during this season even grey and black :) Happy week!

  57. Hi Ivana! I really like your new fashion illustrations - each of them is special and I see that you inspired by autumnal shades. I love that illustration with your perfect dress - sheer dress with floral applications would look terrific and I hope that you'll find time to sew it, I'm sure that it would be magnificant and extraordinary <3 What's more, personally I also love autumn - in my opinion, there is no more beautiful and more colorful (with a little bit of nostalgia) season of the year.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

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…

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
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 …
