FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: BLACK DRESS, GREY BLAZER AND BURGUNDY HEELS

Hello there! July is coming to its end. It seems appropriate that I'm finishing this month with my Fashion Illustration Friday feature. I did try very hard to find time for fashion illustrating this past month. I managed to do make some fashion sketches and illustrations, so I'd say that I'm on a good track. Today I'll share with you one new fashion sketch inspired by a simple summer styling. Bellow you can see the collage with the outfit and sketch. On the left you can see the original outfit that inspired the fashion sketch, in between is the sketch I made wider and on the right is the original pencil sketch (drawn in an elongated style). Scroll down to see and read more.

THE STORY OF AN OUTFIT- HOW I WORE IT BEFORE?
I like the idea of achieving a sustainable closet by wearing our clothing items a minimum of 30 times. So, I try to keep track of how many times I have worn an item. This is also good for getting outfit inspiration and learning how to maximize our closet. I always say that a great advantage of a blog is having a virtual visual closet you can always reach in for inspiration. 
THE BLACK DRESS- A gift from some company (don't remember the name). See how I wore it here and here. 
THE MINI BROWN BAG- A friend bought this for me in an vintage second hand shop in Zagreb. You can see how I wore it previously here, herehere and here
THE GREY BLAZER - My sister-in-law gave it to me. See how I styled it here, here  and here.
THE BURGUNDY SQUARE SHOES WITH A BLOCK HEEL- These  heels were handed down to me. See how I styled them here here and here.

HOW MUCH BLACK DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR CLOSET?
Black is always an elegant choice. As much as I love colour, I admire the timeless elegance of black. I don't have as much black in my wardrobe as an average person, but there are certain black items I cannot do without. One of the most important ones is a black dress. Not only a little black dress, but a maxi and a midi black dress as well. I have quite a few black dresses in my closet and not all of them are simple cocktail black dresses. Some of them are maxi dresses, some are more elaborate, some less but they all have one thing in common- they are a chic option I often reach for.  Black clothing items are perfect for balancing an outfit.Black skirts are another thing I like to rely on. A black skirt is a great choice with a lovely colourful  top. Similarly, a black blazer can tone down and transform just about anything in a office appropriate outfit. You will never go wrong with a well fitted black dress. If you want to jazz up your outfit, you can always wear a lighter blazer on top (like I did in the outfit I illustrated before).

  4. I love the idea of wearing a piece of clothing as many times as you can, so you really get the best use out of it.
    I feel like I have a fair amount of black pieces in my closet.
    Looking amazing in this dress!

  9. Dearest Ivana,
    Your outfit with the black blazer looks really great again - it has a classic, but also slightly nostalgic touch. Very nice also your implementation in a fashion illustration! I particularly like the version where it looks as if more of the girls are dancing together :-)) You are absolutely right that it is a great advantage of a blog to have a virtual visual closet in which you can always be inspired. And it's wonderful that you also wear your clothes more often this way and create a sustainable wardrobe. Black clothes are definitely good to combine and very chic. Years ago I used to have almost only black things in my closet. Now I like it more colorful, but I still use my black things for combinations.
    Hugs and happy August!

    1. I'm the same way, I like colour but I also like to have black options because they are easy to style.

  10. Wearing everything at least 30 times is a great way to check if an wardrobe is sustainable or not. Of course, there are some exceptions, like an evening dress, but the majority of the clothes can and should be suitable to wear for those 30 times. I love this!!

    You look great, the dress is gorgeous and it suits you nicely. xx

  15. As always, I'm in full admiration of your talent, Ivana! What a lovely way to keep oneself occupied with too. I particularly love the penultimate one, of the girl with the black floral skirt and flower headpiece! Thank you so much for sharing, and have a lovely week ahead! xxx

  17. Your outfit is beautiful! It really suits you a lot and I like the way you have combined the jacket and the dress. It's good to wear things lots of times. What dress size do you wear?

    1. I'm not even sure, the sizes are often so different. I think I'm German/Croatian 38 and Italian 42.

  18. With the black dress and blazer, I just love the dichotomy of it Ivana. The dress is what I'd consider a dressier item, yet the blazer makes it more professional. And altogether fabulous together.

  26. Hope you had a magical July Ivana, this is being an odd summer so far but I'm happy to see you're taking the time to express yourself with your art, but more important, finding new formats and techniques and mixing digital art with traditional resources!

    I love all the illustrations, but the first one with less color is my favorite since it express a lot of deep feelings in the face of the model!

  27. A sustainable wardrobe is important to me as well and I've been trying to rotate my pieces more so I don't end up wearing the same things all the time. I didn't own that much black before and have added more through the years. It is a good base color for many types of outfits.

    1. Yes, black is a good base even for those who like other colours.
