Enamel jewelry is pretty hot right now. Available in a multitude of fashionable colors, these statement pieces are everywhere. One great incarnation of this accessory is the black enamel bracelet. Not only does it evoke the bold nature of the style, but it allows you more flexibility considering it features the ultimate, and arguably most exciting, neutral color. It can add a bit of glam to an outfit while still being versatile.
One great way to wear this piece is for a night out on the town. Black goes with anything, so if you’re wearing a dress of practically any color, this accessory will match. To make it stand out a bit more, try wearing it with a color other than black, so the bracelet can stand out in contrast against the color you choose. Usually if you’re going bold with color in the clothing portion of your ensemble, it means that the accessories should provide a point of balance. This piece does just that. The black enamel tones down the look while still allowing you to accessorize without looking like it’s too much.
Also consider playing with a bold shoe or clutch purse. The same rules apply as above for a dress or flashy top. You can also consider playing around with prints, too. The black and gold of this accessory naturally lends itself to leopard print which feature the same colors. This bracelet can effortlessly tie together leopard clutch purses by using the same colors instead of repeating the pattern. This way, the colors accentuate the print, allowing it to stand out more and make more of a statement.
This piece is also great for the office. If you’re looking to add some oomph to your normal workplace ensemble, a simple but chunk piece like this adds some personality to your look while still being professional and appropriate. Pair this bracelet with gold or other statement necklace. Buy this stylish bracelet at Chicastic now!

Spring is one of the more popular times of year to get married. The land brightens up and fills with color following the snows from winter, and when it comes to fashion, bright, fresh pastels tend to take the forefront. While pastels can be bright, they can also be soft depending on your desired effect, and both options are more than appropriate for spring. Pastels usually consist of pale shades, such as yellow, green, pink and purple. Purple has been particularly hot these past few years and orange is also on the rise. These two colors can work great when used as pastels for your bridal accessories such as clutch purses.
In their raw form, purple and orange make a bold and bright color contrast. Normally yellow is purples complimentary color but orange, being in the same color family as yellow, is a close second. When in paler forms, such as in the pastel tone, purple and orange are muted but still bold colors both together and apart. When it comes to bridal accessories, accents are the best way to incorporate color without going overboard. While the bride and groom’s color schemes are essentially set (if you’re having a traditional wedding, that is) there is always room to play when it comes to sashes, bow ties, ties, and of course the bridesmaids dresses and bridesmaid purses. These are great ways to incorporate color into the bridal party and you can even alternate with between the two, whichever you choose. Have the men wear pastel purple ties and the bridesmaids wear pastel orange dresses, or even the other way around. And you can choose to go with either purple or orange alone, of course.
When it comes to decor, ribbons, balloons, place settings and floral center pieces can incorporate the pastels you want to accent your wedding. Choose pale orange flowers or use pastel purple napkins and ribbons for the silverware. And don’t forget about the invitations, RSVP requests and of course, the cake! All of these decor accessories can add some freshness to your wedding while keeping it classy and traditional. The schemes are entirely up to you, and whether you decide to go with one or two accent colors depends on your preference and personal style. Don’t be afraid to add some brightness to a traditional wedding, especially if you incorporate them by using accents and accessories. Evoke the warmth and freshness of spring into your wedding.
Clutch bags are small so we have to make some big choices as to what goes in them. Here are some tips on what basics you’ll need to keep in your handbag.
Unlike large bags, such as totes or backpacks, a clutch is not designed to hold every possible thing we may need while we happen to be out. Small and light weight clutches can hold some essentials. Be sure you have the basics in your clutch in order to meet your basic needs.
First and foremost, always carry your wallet and ID! These are obvious essentials and are always good to have on hand. Money and identification is the most important thing to have on you in an emergency, and can help get your bag back to you if you happen to lose it.
Since you already have make up on when you are going to a party, you might only need a lipstick and foundation. A small, travel-sized sanitizer is also great for dirty hands on the go and takes up virtually no room at all.
Makeup essentials should be next on your list. While it’s probably a little overboard to bring your entire set of make up with you everywhere you go, even if you do happen to have a tote bag, all you really need are the basics to conduct any necessary touch ups. A basic eyeliner, powder and mascara will do. If you happen to wearing eye shadow, bring that case in the event some of the powder rubs off or gets smudged and needs fixing. If you’re wearing lip stick or lip gloss, bring along the shade you’re wearing since it will wear off or dry over the course of the day. Only bring what you’re wearing, adjust your makeup tools to that day’s routine. Only bring what is necessary!
Backup accessories are also great to carry. It’s comforting to have a ring or two and a necklace if you’re not sure where the day or night might take you. Bring a statement necklace or a bangle to wear in case you end up going somewhere that might demand a little more glamour or if you’re unsure of what you’re currently wearing. It’s always nice to know you have an alternative. Even if you leave the house with jewelry and later feel over-encumbered or over dressed, then you’ll have somewhere to store them if you decide to take them off.
A clutch is a small, handheld bag, but can hold more than you think. It absolutely has the room you need to carry any basic necessities, and is actually all you probably need to carry in any bag you choose to wear. To find a clutch bag for your next evening out, come to Chicastic now!

Clutch bags are an essential part of any outfit. Let your bag reflect the season and let it brighten up your look.
Spring cleaning often gets us itching to clean out our closets and buy some fresh new items. While there’s never really any reason to completely overhaul your wardrobe, there are some easy fixes to help you feel refreshed once winter is finally over. Spring not only means lighter jackets and warmer weather, but it also welcomes color back into the world. If you want to open your wardrobe up to spring, consider buying a new spring handbag to brighten up your look.
There are plenty of handbags out there, since most are appropriate year round. Often though, a simple color or pattern will determine when an item or accessory is most appropriate. While neutrals like black, white and beige are always in season, pale colors like pastels and bright neons are more spring appropriate. While more neons may not be for everyone and are more of a summer thing, pastels are unique to spring so jump on the opportunity to sport a pastel colored bag. This could include pinks, purples, yellows, greens and oranges. The light nature of these colors allows them to act more like a neutral than brighter, bolder colors. While they aren’t as versatile as blacks or whites, the light nature of these colors allows you to pair them with more outfits and accessories while still adding a splash of color.
Aside from playing with color, you can also play around with brighter, lighter patterns. Prints that use nature themes and florals are great for this season and mirror the changes happening outside. Flowers, leaves, trees and other natural elements make for fresh, fun prints that can be used in handbags as well as in other accessories. Canvas bags of any kind exhibit these best, whether they’re featured in hobo bags, totes, satchels, or cross-bodies. Even if you’re wearing an outfit consisting of solid colors, a patterned bag can add a lot of depth and refresh your look.
A clutch bag is a versatile accessory, making a bold statement whether casual or formal. Use a red bag to add some oomph to one of your looks or learn how you can use it with your style.
Red is possibly the most fashion forward color out there. Not only has it held a place in fashion history for centuries, but it is just as powerful today as it ever was. No matter what though, it’s a bold color and always packs a punch while still remaining fairly traditional. If you’re looking to incorporate this color into your wardrobe, one great way to do so is with a red clutch bag.
The clutch often tends to have more power to make a bold statement than other handbags despite its size. This accessory is sleek in nature and always adds a bit of upscale couture to any ensemble. Not to mention, is always a good vehicle for providing that oomph you may feel an outfit needs. A statement clutch goes a long way without overpowering an outfit. It’s small and simple but its elegant appearance still has the ability to say a lot and really stand out. That’s why choosing a red clutch is a great way to incorporate the color into your wardrobe and still make a statement without revamping your entire closet.
A red clutch does a lot. The color alone demands a lot of attention, though this depends on the shade you choose. A true, primary red is incredibly daring. Not to mention, it can be used to match or offset a wide range of palettes. It would be best to pair this iconic color against a monochromatic outfit, such as, black, white or a mixture of both. This tricolor combo is a simple way to make a bold statement without looking flashy or that you’re trying too hard.
If the primary version isn’t quite your style, other tones and shades may work better with your closet and your skin tone. You can go lighter or darker, or even mix other colors in there depending on the relative temperature of the clothes you normally wear. A darker red works in much the same way a bright one does, but has a more subtle and sultry effect. A shade that includes more yellow suits brighter and warmer outfit palettes, while one that includes more blue is better matched with darker or cooler ones.
A red clutch can make any outfit stand out and look fashion forward. Though this color can work with practically anyone, there are different shades and tones out there to suit anyone’s tastes, just as there are countless clutch styles to match any outfit, ensemble, or overall sense of style.
