Outfit of the day: Layered skirts

Outfit of the day: Layered skirtsfeatured

Red October is my new favourite photoshoot location in Moscow. We shot these on an unusually warm day with Natasha, and I just love the editing she did, she even somehow brushed my hair? Lol. Check her out, she does photoshoots, video, edits photos and is a pretty chill lady.

Я уже несколько раз снимала и снималась на Красном Октябре, отличное место для фото. В день, когда мы делали эти кадры, было уж очень тепло и солнечно для московского марта. Наташа сняла и обработала эти фото. У нее можно заказать съемку, обработку и еще много чего тут.

This backdrop just looks like Gotham or something out of Rear Window. Would be so fun to do a photoshoot in this building, but apparently it’s private property.

А это – ну просто Готэм или “Окно во двор“. Было бы круто сделать фотосессию в том здании сзади, но, кажется, там частная территория.

After writing about spring silhouettes, I decided to give the layered skirt trend a try. The dress is boxy and doesn’t pair well with a belt because of the heavy fabric. This leather skater skirt gave it some shape. I’m still not sure whether I like the look of it, but I will definitely experiment with skirt layering more.

После прошлого поста о силуэтах этой весны я решила попробовать обыграть тренд двухслойной юбки. Это платье – свободного кроя и слишком плотное, чтобы перевязывать ремнем. Но кожаная мини сразу меняет силуэт. Как вам такая интерпретация тренда?

    I love your skirt layering, I love the whole outfit. You look amazing. I’m seriously in love with the black and white faux fur scarf. Thanks for linking #streetstylesunday xxx

      Thanks for stopping by, glad you like the look 🙂

  • Oh, there’s a skirt layering trend, i had no idea! Well for me, this is a trend with a Weight Limit, its definitely not for everyone. You carry it of! And I love these locations, I do styling work and getting a good location is always a pain when you dont have a massive budget…I’d love to do some shots here and create fantastic stories to go alongside them!

    • Yana

      I see your point, but I actually found this kind of skirt layering pretty flattering. It creates the illusion of a smaller waist (which I dig :)) and conceals the heavier part of the hips.
      And yes, hunting for location can be a pain, most times even a decent wall is hard to find. I used this place for several projects already, it is a blessing 🙂

  • I love the outfit on you, it looks great. The photos are incredible. And the setting! Love it. Especially the graphic novel/comic book mural blown up on the wall.

    • Yana

      Thank you, Nikki! This place has incredible street art.

  • Totally stunning!

    I love the combination of casual and the fur, fab outfit and fab setting #AllAboutYou

    • Yana

      Thank you! I threw the fur on rushing out the door thinking it was too cold. It wasn’t, but the stole added an unexpected glamorous touch to an otherwise grungy look.

  • Hello, good to “meet” you! I love this layered look on you! Gorgeous and your pictures are stunning!!

      Thank you! The jacket is a new obsession of mine, best bargain from Bangkok’s Chatuchak market lol. I also really like the look of a pencil skirt over a flowy one, need to try it too 🙂
