Silk Scarf Wrap

Scarves are an invaluable fashion accessory all year round. Here are some ways to wear a silk scarf this spring.

There is no fashion accessory quite as versatile as the scarf. It is simultaneously practical and fashionable and can be manipulated to create and match countless looks, outfits and ensembles on any number of occasions. Each of the seasons tends to call on different materials when it comes to fashion in general but these accessories are no exception. While there are some materials, like cotton and silk, that are appropriate year round, there is something a little more special about silk. Silk can be worn no matter what the season is, but always calls for a classier look than any of the other fabrics. Adding silk instantly makes any look more sleek and a silk scarf wrap is one great way to add it to your wardrobe.

The great thing about these fashion accessories is that there is no one right way to wear them. Let your rendition of a scarf inspire the rest of your ensemble or the other way around. These simple but rich colors are perfect for spring, adding a bit of extra oomph to any rainy day. You can choose to match your outfit with the overall color of the scarf or use contrasting colors when it comes to both. Use it to brighten up an otherwise dark outfit, add a splash of color to a spring trench coat if the weather calls for it, or use it to add some fun to an office outfit. Even adding it to a more casual outfit will dress it up a little. Depending on the color of the scarf and those used in your overall outfit this accessory can add a fun touch while the silk adds some elegant texture to whatever you are wearing.

When it comes to tying or wearing this accessory, you have several options available to you. Wearing it close and tight about the neck can give you a bit of an Old Hollywood look, just as if you were to wear it over a hairdo like a kerchief. As the name suggests, you can absolutely wear this piece as a wrap around, whether it is simply draped over your shoulders or used more widely over your torso as makeshift cardigan or kimono. There are even several ways to tie this piece as a wrap, which may include simply folding it into a triangle, draping over your shoulders and tying in the front, you can wear it as a side wrap or one-shouldered wrap, or even loop and tie the ends so it makes an infinity scarf and looping it under your arms and over your neck as a makeshift cardigan which can be bunched at the shoulders for texture or draped loosely over your shoulders to look more like a kimono.

Peacock Motif Clutches

The peacock pattern is simultaneously elegant, unique and complex. Use this classic motif to inspire or add some oomph to your outfits.

A clutch is one of the best ways to add some oomph to your look. These fashion accessories not only hold your basic essentials, but they have the power to make a statement despite their small size. There is no commitment involved, they can be taken off or added to an outfit just as easily, and they can be mixed and matched just as quickly and effortlessly. One such powerful clutch purse is a peacock motif clutch. Whether they feature peacock feathers, the feather design, or merely mimic their colors, this purse is sure to turn some heads and add some serious depth and dimension to your ensemble.

This sort of bag can be used in multiple ways. The first, and easiest, way is also perhaps the most useful. A purse like this definitely makes a statement but is simultaneously bold and timeless all at once. This motif hearkens back to that Old Hollywood glamour that is always in style and always appropriate. It can be added to monochromatic evening wear as well as casual wear. Use it to add some oomph to a more casual date outfit or wear it with your favorite little black dress. In these instances, the bag will add some character to your ensemble while your clothing can remain simplistic yet timeless. The colors do a lot to bring depth and dimension to a look, even if it is basic or simple, and will dress it up by association and close proximity. When paired with simpler colors and simpler ensembles, this clutch really becomes the focus of the outfit yet also enhances your outfit at the same time.

In a different vein, you can decide to use the bag to inspire your desired outfit. The peacock motif is known for its signature colors, consisting of deep blue, indigo or purple, and teal, more or less. These three colors can be used to influence your choice of additional accessories as well as influence your other pieces of clothing. For instance, choose one color you want to focus on from the pattern, such as the dark blue. Choose a dress, top or pant in this shade and this will seamlessly blend your outfit with your clutch. You can add accessories that match the remaining colors but remember that subtle accents can really go a long way. Similarly, you can simply pair this clutch with accessories that match one of the colors in the pattern to create a complete look.

Suede One Ring Clutch

Nothing says classy more than royal blue suede. Use this sophisticated piece to accent or inspire your next elegant evening out.

Looking classy does not have to be difficult. Though the intended result is to appear refined, achieving this look can be effortless. Using choice accessories as a point of reference and inspiration can be a great starting point when getting an ensemble together for a formal evening or an elegant night out. This suede one ring clutch makes a statement while remaining poised and simple and can act as the perfect launching pad for a fancy evening look.

The material of this clutch is classy on its own. Suede is soft and delicate while still being a leather, and can easily be used to add texture to a look. The deep color of the royal blue of the suede really adds richness to this piece and can easily act as a standalone statement bag. Pairing it with a light chiffon or silky cream colored ensemble would really make this clutch shine. Add some accessories that match the embellishments on the clutch, such as a cocktail ring that matches the enclosure of the bag and a rhinestone studded bracelet, necklace or earrings to match the clutch’s additional decor. Or you could use the color of the bag versus its additional design to inspire your accessories. Find a similar colored and/or textured shoe, find jewelry with royal blue or sapphire insets, or find other pieces that incorporate the color using materials like lace or ribbon.

Similarly, you could also use this bag along with similar darker tones, though this works best for autumn or winter occasions when deep colors and rich, thick materials are more appropriate (and more comfortable) to wear. The trick is to balance the right amount of each aspect in order to create a well proportioned look. Use the royal blue to inspire a blue-toned ensemble or pair it with dark, velvety blacks that will match the soft suede. This look will demand brighter accessories and would work best with other rhinestone inspired pieces, blue-jeweled insets or sapphires, or even simplistic pearls. The simpler the accessories, the more sophisticated the look. This will also allow the bag to really stand out more, especially if the outfit is more heavily inspired by the look of this clutch. A simple pearl necklace, or sapphire earrings will do the trick, but remember to keep it simple. Choose only one additional accessory to compliment this clutch and it will go a long way.

What to Wear to a Spring Wedding

Springtime is one of the more popular times to get married, but what do you wear to a spring wedding? Try refreshing your look for the warmth of the season by adding some color and natural inspired patterns to your look.

Spring weddings, like any wedding, will indicate the desired dress code on the invitation or RSVP card. But this provided suggestion does not always help you decide on what to wear. Though whether the invite says whether it is casual, black tie, or anything in between, it’s fun to take advantage of the season and use colors that will reflect the weather and the latest fashions.

When it comes to black tie or elegant formal weddings, you may feel like you are not left with a lot of wiggle room, but it does allow you to be a little creative. Even though these sorts of events call for floor length gowns, you can still play around with color and texture. While formal events still call for simplistic elegance, you can still try to incorporate pastels and other spring colors such as orchid. Even if you want to choose a more conservative dress with more neutral or understated but classic color, you can still accessorize with colors of the season. Colored bangles, wrist cuffs or statement necklaces are great ways to include brighter colors without making it the focal point of your look.

More casual weddings offer you a lot more leeway to experiment or have fun. While it is still a wedding and you shouldn’t look too over the top and take attention away from the bride, a more casual setting can allow you to incorporate busier patterns and colors than a more formal wedding. Play around with spring prints like florals that can still be classy and dressy. You might also feel more comfortable using colors and playing with texture when invited to a more casual wedding. Whether you’re going super casual and wearing a cotton dress or going a little more upscale with a cocktail number, there is a lot more room to play around with.

If you’re still not sure about what to wear to a wedding, pay attention to the location listed on the invitation. It will help provide you with some clues as to what to wear, especially when it comes to fabric. A destination beach wedding may call for chiffon if you’re looking for elegant and perhaps an embellished cotton if the wedding is casual. A chic city locale may call for ensembles of a sleeker material. But if you want to take advantage of the season, try to incorporate some color and add some of that fresh spring feel to brighten your look.

Duster Knuckle Clutch

Gold can be great in a pinch. Add that oomph to your outfit with this glittery gold clutch.

Looking glamorous can have a lot of meanings and may differ depending on who you are talking to. But no matter what, gold always has the power to add oomph to an outfit. The key with gold is to use it wisely and sparingly. Bring your evening ensemble to the next level with this gold glitter duster knuckle clutch.

This bag can go two ways, if not more. But when it comes to evening events, it can be worn to a high class formal event just as well as it can to a night out with the girls. It all depends on what you’re wearing it with. If you’re heading out to a glamorous formal event, clad in an evening gown and timeless jewelry, this handbag can add that bit of boldness you’re looking for without requiring you to overhaul your whole look. While looking timeless and traditional for a formal event is nothing but expected, having a statement piece to set you apart from the crowd can make you feel bold while you still adhere to the rules of formal wear. Against a neutral evening gown, this bag sparkles and shines and since it is so small it will attract just the right amount of attention.

If you’re planning a more casual night out that still calls for you to dress to the nines, then this bag will work just as well. If you’re going to a less formal event then you have much more freedom to play around with dresses in terms of color and texture. You can use this bag to inspire your jewelry by adding other sparkly or metallic gold pieces and shoes to add that wow factor to a cocktail dress or even more casual outfit. Even if you’re going out on a date, this clutch can be used along with a basic outfit and, say, a statement necklace to jazz it up a little.

This bag has multiple purposes, but the trick is not to go overboard. If you choose to wear matching accessories, choose one or two choice items and make sure they aren’t crowded around the same area. For instance, a statement earring and metallic gold shoes would be great with this clutch when worn with a cocktail dress. If worn to jazz up a casual outfit, a bold necklace is perhaps the only other accessory you need. Subtlety goes a long way with gold and still adds that glamorous effect.

Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces are everywhere now and they come in a countless variety of styles. Bib necklaces are among some of the most popular and here are some ways you can wear them to your advantage.

Statement necklaces are super hot right now. They can be bold and daring or can do a lot to accent an ensemble. Even though they seem to take up a lot of space and demand more attention than other jewelry pieces might, these particular fashion accessories are surprisingly versatile. They can be worn with basic outfits, to the office, out to dinner, and even to weddings or other formal events. This black enamel and gold tone bib statement necklace has more uses than you might initially think and can help extend your wardrobe.

This particular piece is both modern and vintage inspired. Bib necklaces hearken to an ancient time, evoking the images of Cleopatra or Nefertiti, and bring with them their wealth of power and beauty. These necklaces today are just as powerful and can be used on many occasions. The simple black and gold pattern makes this piece extremely adaptable, matching most outfits and looks. Black is not only the easiest color to match but is by far the sleekest. And gold brings with it a wealth of beauty, both in its appearance as well as in its history. While this piece does rock that vintage vibe, it is still very modern. Because of this, it can be worn along with a professional power suit just as well as with a flowy, bohemian dress.

Large necklaces like this work well with simple necklines. A strapless top or dress really allows this piece to stand out against your neck and shoulders without anything to distract from it. Wear it with a basic tank or strapless top in summer to liven up a casual, poolside outfit. These necklaces also work well with scoop necks or v-necks if you’re still looking to dress up a casual outfit. As long as the neckline is wide enough to allow the accessory space to sit comfortably, it can add that oomph to any basic tee and jeans.

If you’re going for a more professional look, this necklace works just as well. Even though they look great on a bare neck, they can also be worn tucked under the collar of a button down shirt. This adds more dimension to the shirt you’re wearing, and still looks great when peeking out from under a fitted blazer. On a more formal note, this piece is also great for formal events as well. Since it is fairly neutral, it can work with most colors, but still works just as well when paired with a little black dress.

You can find this black and gold statement necklace as well as other statement necklaces at Chicastic.
