8 WAYS TO STYLE A PRINTED SKIRT WHILE SHOPPING ONE'S CLOSET

Hello darlings! Today I'll show you eight ways to style a printed ruffled skirt. I bought this skirt a few years ago. I fancy both its pattern and cut. Moreover, I find it really easy to style. I have worn this  parsley print skirt fairly recently for a visit to this place. Therefore, I figured it would be a fine idea to make one of those 'X ways to wear a Y item' posts that you seem to enjoy. 

Ciao miei cari! Oggi vi mostrerò 8 modi per abbinare una gonna stampata con volant. Ho comprato questa gonna qualche anno fa. Mi piacciono la stampa e il taglio di questa gonna e la trovo davvero facile da indossare. Ho indossato questa gonna abbastanza di recente per una visita a questo posto. Pertanto, ho pensato che sarebbe una buona idea creare uno di quei post su "X modi di indossare un capo Y" che sembrano populari con voi cari lettori.

Zdravo! Danas ću vam pokazati osam načina da nosite suknju s uzorkom i volanima. Kupila sam ju prije par godina, a osim što mi se sviđa i uzorak i kroj, dopada mi se i to što ju je veoma lako nositi. Nosila sam ju nedavno za posjet ovom mjestu, tako da mi je palo na pamet kako bi bilo dobro napisati jednu od onih "X načina za nositi Y odjevni predmet" koje vam se (koliko vidim) sviđaju.

1. WITH A BLACK BLAZER, A GREEN HAND PAINTED T-SHIRT, A PAIR OF OLIVE TIGHTS AND GREY  BOOTS
This was a recent styling and a very comfortable one. This blazer was custom made for me (as a part of a suit) so I obviously love to wear it. Nothing really replaces that tailored feel, does it? Other items that you might find interesting is this green hand painted t-shirt and this pair of printed tights. If you want a more detailed view of this hand painted long sleeve t-shirt or want to learn more about using textile paints, feel free to check out this and this post. The boots are old as well and (nothing is new about any of these outfits) and they're really light on my feet. 


This is another combo where I choose to pair this printed skirt with a graphic tee. Sometimes I like to keep things simple and sometimes I like to print mix. For more photographs of this styling, feel free to visit this post where it was originally posted. This is obviously a warm weather option, but you can turn this outfit into an autumn one by adding a jacket or a blazer and/or a pair of boots. 
Here we have another summer styling that could easily be transformed into an autumn one by layering a sweater, a blazer or a coat. I like how this skirt looks with a black t-shirt and heels.  It definitely pays off to have a basic black t-shirt in one's closet. Moreover,  how easy is it to make an outfit elegant and feminine? All you need is a cute pair of heels. More about this styling here

4. WITH A WHITE BLOUSE, TINY SUNGLASSES AND COMFY FLAT SHOES 
I wore this outfit for hiking this summer, but I haven't posted it before. As you can see, here I paired this printed ruffled skirt with a white blouse. I quite like this combo. I might wear it this autumn as well with introduction of some layers. I think it would look great with a white blazer. What do you think? Should I wear it that way? 

5. WITH A STRIPED CARDI, A BLACK BLAZE, A VINTAGE BAG AND POINTY HEELS 
This is another layered look that is perfect for those unpredictable autumn days. By layering a striped cardigan underneath a black blazer, I made sure I was warm enough. At the same time, I knew I could take the blazer off if it gets too warm. This cardigan is one of the oldest pieces in my closet, I got it as a kid and I still keep it. You can see how I styled it here and here. I finished this book with a black vintage blouse and pointy heels. This outfit was originally posted here.


6. WITH AN OFF SHOULDER TOP, A FOLKLORE BAG AND A PAIR OF BLUE SHOES 
Bellow you can see me wearing a blue vintage top I hand painted myself (if you look closely, you'll see the inscription 'a little place to call my own' that refers to this blog!)  The bag I'm wearing is a Croatian traditional folklore bag  and it is very special to me because it was a gift from my late grandmother. The dark blue shoe were a great find, but I don't have them anymore. They fell apart  while I was running to catch a ferry (something I have done a lot in my life).

Mixing prints can be so much fun! Originally posted here, this is an outfit rich in DIY elements. It is also another warm weather styling that you can turn into an autumn/winter one by layering a coat or a blazer and opting to wear tights. Pairing tights with heels is a neat trick to create feminine but warm combos for autumn/winter. It also allows you to maximize your open toe heels and/or heeled sandals.
8. WITH A SILK BLOUSE, A VINTAGE CORD BLAZER, TIGHTS AND POINTY HEELS 
Posted originally here, this was a fun outfit that I fondly recall. This vintage blazer is possibly one of the most worn items in my closet, it seems to look great worn with anything. I think it matches the autumn appropriate colours of this skirt quite well.I finished this look with a grey silk blouse, grey tights and black pointy heels. Tell me what do you think?

  1. I've always loved printed skirts, though more so in the summertime - until recently! I've fallen head over heels for autumnal printed skirts in mid-lengths now. You really suit printed skirts, Ivana! :)

  16. Dear Ivana, I see that skirt was definitely a very good purchase and as usual you are enormously creative in the context to style this skirt. I love the combinations you show here and I'm impressed who versatile the skirt due to your skills is. You inspired me now even to wear one of my similar skirts soon in combination with a blazer. Thanks for your inspirations!

  19. Ovaj šos najviše (po meni) dolazi do izražaja u ljetnim kombinacijama. Super mi je na kratke rukave i gole noge. Odlično ti stoji, najviše mi se sviđa kako si iskombinirala na cold shoulder majicu i onu crnu majcu kratkih rukava odmah ispod te.
    Definitivno suknju nosiš često :)

  32. I love a skirt with a pattern that goes with everything! This is so fun - I also like that you've worn it in different ways to show off that interesting lace trim (I like how it lines up with the landscape in the first picture!). A skirt that can go casual or dressy is always a winner in my closet! I hope you have a great week, Ivana!

  41. I liked the options.... And what I see about your style is that you own many clean and neutral pieces to mix with more quirky garments. You have the best of both worlds and I must say a balance of many pieces in your fashion posts!

    I liked also the boho feels in this post, they remind of Gucci latest collections, with many prints and a lot of references to the 70s... you should check it out, I'm sure you could get a lot of inspiration for upcoming illustrations ;)

HOW TO STYLE A GRAPHIC T-SHIRT WITH WHITE JEANS?

How to style a graphic t-shirt? There are quite a few ways to go about it. My outfit proposal of the day suggests that you should try styling your graphic tee with a white shirt, white jeans and a pair of pink heels. Just because autumn is here, doesn't mean you have to wear only dark colours. White items can look so elegant when styled right. Wearing white for autumn and winter can be a great way to refresh your style. If your style is more classical, pair white with neutral colours such as black or grey. If you're a lover of colour, you can have fun pairing white with any shade you like. I actually love to wear soft colours such as baby pink and blue even in the colder months. If you want to jazz up your graphic tee outfit, why not try pairing it with white jeans? If your graphic t-shirt is short sleeved, why not try layering a shirt or a blouse under it? If you borrow you t-shirt from your boyfriend or someone taller than yourself, you can even wear it as a dress and pair …

VISIT STARI GRAD ON ISLAND HVAR WITH ME! TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS

Stari Grad on island Hvar is a beautiful historical city. Its name, meaning old city, couldn't be more appropriate. In fact, Stari Grad was formed the same year Aristotle was born in! Moreover, the connection with the ancient Greeks doesn't stop there. This city was actually formed by Greek colonists from island Paros who came here looking for a safe place to live after a natural catastrophe destroyed their homes. In this secluded bay, the ancient Greeks found both safety and beauty. They named this city Faros. This stunning port city, Aristotle's contemporary, can boast with five thousand years of continuous urban tradition. It is also an amazingly beautiful, authentic and picturesque touristic destination. More than five thousand years of urban tradition is not something you see every day. Walking these streets, you can really breathe in history and culture. Autumn is a great time to visit but winters are also pretty mild here, so a winter stay makes sense too.

VRBOSKA (AKA LITTLE VENICE) ON ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA

Island Hvar hides many gems and I'm very excited to share them all with you. Today I'm taking you to a little picturesque village named Vrboska and nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Located at the end of a narrow bay, this tiny village is an ideal place to escape the stresses of modern life. Because of its lovely bridges, Vrboska was nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Everything from the pine forest surrounding it to the traditional Dalmatian architecture within is absolutely beautiful. The views are simply amazing. No wonder it is increasingly popular with the tourists. 
This village started its life as a fishing port and its deep bay still offers protection for boats and yachts.  It is the perfect place to stroll around and admire boats and traditional stone houses. The little island within the bay is particularly beautiful. This little village has only around 500 residents. Most tourists visit Vrboska during the summer. There are many stunning beaches in the vicinity and …
