Animal print has made its mark and it does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. It’s been associated with wealth and royalty for centuries, and while anyone can sport this style now, there are still rules about how to wear it right. This style, no matter what feline hide you’re rocking, emits an aura of boldness. But the trick to wearing it is wearing it in moderation. This goes for whether you’re looking to use it to accentuate an outfit or as the main event. Any animal print will make more of a statement when treated moderately. It speaks for itself so choose wisely when you’re accessorizing animal print or accessorizing with it.
If you’re looking to wear the print, choose your accompanying pieces wisely. If you’re wearing a leopard print dress, choose understated accessories that only work to flatter the dress, not draw attention from it or distract, such as a black envelope clutch or a simple chiffon or silk scarf in a neutral color. If you’re looking to wear a snakeskin pant, choose a neutral top and shoe, and if you want to go with color opt for one that fits in the same color family as the shade of snakeskin so it will work to harmonize while still flattering the print. When it comes to jewelry, choose simple, timeless pieces that will still look purposeful, such as a sterling silver cocktail ring or simple gold hoop earrings.
Accessorizing with animal print isn’t as daring as having it take center stage in an outfit, but it can still be bold. Going minimal will let the print speak for itself and allow the true power of its classic style to shine. It can be used to glam up any basic or neutral outfit, and stands out best against simple and understated outfits. Instantly make a little black dress a little more retro with a leopard print scarf tied tight around your neck or hair with a matching patent belt at the waist. Make any basic tee and jeans anything but basic with a snakeskin shoe and clutch.
Animal print is bold and daring, but it can be made appropriate for any occasion depending on how you wear it. This timeless style can be worn on a date, to the office, running errands, or even an elegant night out. No matter what the occasion, the key is to go minimal and let that little bit of wild side shine. Chicastic has a special section dedicated to everything animal print. Buy now!
Most of the holiday season is spent thinking about, planning, and executing the difficult gift-giving quest we embark on for everyone special in our lives. Each gift is particular to what friend we’re giving it to, but most of us don’t have the luxury of time to brainstorm up the perfect gift, let alone find it. So what are we to do?
As far as women and our lady friends go, we can at least rely on our own desires to help decipher what our fellow females might want this holiday season. Aside from shopping for gifts, most of us are shopping for the perfect holiday ensembles. Not only do we search for the perfect jewel-toned sweater for Christmas Day or that flashy cocktail dress for New Years, but we keep our eyes out for what we’d like to grab once the post-holiday deals settle in, the stuff we’d like to have for the rest of the year. So why not start there?
You don’t have to go as far as buying an entire outfit for a friend, but think about what makes the perfect outfit? Fashion Accessories.
Accessories allow any outfit to see multiple, even infinite, incarnations and stretch the life of our favorite pieces. Scarves, handbags, clutches, bangles, earrings, cuffs, necklaces of every shape and size… so why not put together a holiday gift bag of such outfit-changing tools?
But there are so many different styles to choose from… which would be best? Here is where the powers of your perception come in. What does your sister like to wear? Vintage-inspired DIY ensembles? Then a print scarf, salvage messenger bag and a chunky bracelet would fit right into her wardrobe. Or what about your lunch-buddy from work? Is she sophisticated and put-together? Then perhaps a jewel-toned clutch, silver bib necklace and a leopard print wrap-around sound like a few things she’d find useful.
Giving little, individual things, is always nice. Any gift is meaningful. But showing just how much you pay attention to your close friends’ senses of style is sure to warm their hearts, and is probably part of their goal when they put themselves together every morning. It’s always nice to have more accessories, especially ones that suit our personality, and it’s always touching when a friend notices our tastes (and helps us look fabulous all year round, of course). Such accessories are useful no matter what style suits you, it’s in the print, color, and overall combination that counts. Your friends can wear their scarf on a daily basis, save that crystal necklace for New Years and bring their clutch out for dinner, or any combination that suits them. Same goes for get-togethers, birthdays, going-away parties, you name it. Think about what you yourself would like for the holidays and apply that to your lady friends, you’ll be sure to find the ticket to holiday gift-giving success.

Congratulations for finally choosing the gown for your special day. This occasion calls for the perfect accessories to make sure you look your best as you walk down the aisle. Though planning for this day can be exhausting, shopping for items to accessorize your look is one of the most fun aspects of weddings. Accessories are a way for the bride to incorporate her personality into her look. Here a few ideas to make sure you have everything you need to complete you ensemble.
- Shoes – Every woman loves to shop for shoes! With the endless multitude of styles to choose from, the right pair is out there waiting. Some brides like to stay traditional and match their shoe to their dress. Others like to incorporate a shoe in a soft shade of blue as their “something blue” for the day. Many brides like to match their bridesmaids by choosing a shoe in the color of their attendants’ dresses. And other brides like to go the non-traditional route and pick a wild style like animal print heels, sneakers, or even flip flops. The choice is yours! Make sure you break your wedding shoes in by wearing them around the house. The last thing you want is to be uncomfortable walking down the aisle. Another option is to have a second pair of flats to wear towards the end of the night.
- Jewelry – Based on the intricacy and detail of your dress, your jewelry should be the opposite. Keep the accessories simple if your dress is very detailed. Ball gowns, full lace, extreme beading and alternative style dresses should be accessorized simply. Otherwise, the bride may come off looking tacky, and that is the last thing we want. Dresses that are more straightforward and plain can benefit from flashier pieces of jewelry such as a statement necklace, detailed cuff, or long dangling earrings. Balance is the key to everything.
- Veils – A veil is a very traditional bridal custom. Some modern brides choose not to wear them. A fascinator with a small face veil will bring this tradition up to date for those women who want a more up to date look. If one decides to wear a longer one, there is always the option of removing it for the reception.
- Something Old – Add an heirloom piece for a sentimental touch. For instance, wear your grandmother’s ring hanging on a chain around your neck. Or pin a brooch to the ribbons that tie your bouquet together. Even an earring that lost its pair can be incorporated this way.
- Bridal Clutch Purse – Add a Something Blue Clutch Purse as your something blue for the wedding. If you already decided on something else for your blue, a white bridal clutch or silver evening bag would be perfect accessories for your wedding day.
Creating your wedding day ensemble should be fun and personalized! Accept constructive ideas but do not let other people tell you what to wear. This day belongs to you. Come to Chicastic now to make your wedding day outfit the perfect one ever!
