We usually associate hats and scarves as necessities of winter and we often forget that the cold weather is really just a great excuse to show off more accessories and styles. Since we’re limited to wearing a coat in the cold weather, hiding out outfits, hats and scarves can really make an outwear ensemble a true, thought-out outfit.
Aside from bundling up, layering is totally in, and scarves are key. They can be worn in an infinite number of ways and even worn as additional layered clothing, such as in a shawl, wrap-around or cowl. Even if you don’t tie your scarf in a creative way, a basic infinity scarf or oblong scarf looks great when worn tucked inside a closed coat and are always in style. A bold bundle of chiffon, silk or even cotton can brighten your winter outerwear and turn it into an outfit instead of just a shield against the cold. Prints and patterns can make any simple coat pop, and even if you’re wearing a bold winter jacket, a scarf will fit perfectly in the nook around to your neck and add some winter glam.
Hats also possess a wealth of possibility. The styles are endless! Most of us worry about hat hair and have other similar concerns when it comes to hats, but many hats, such as beanies and cloches, are totally acceptable to wear indoors as well, making these accessories part of a daily hairstyle instead of just an outdoor tool to stay warm. While we do wear hats to protect our heads, faces and especially our ears against the bitter air of the season, these styles are becoming more and more popular and can be worn with most outfits and are not just limited for use outdoors.
If you want to maximize your winter wardrobe, invest in several scarves (in a few different colors, prints and fabrics that suit your general style) and several hat styles that suit you and define different kinds of outfits in order to create as many combinations as possible. This also ensures that you have an accessory for any occasion, whether it is casual, professional or formal. When you hear the news telling you that a blizzard is headed your way or that temperatures are drastically dropping, know that you have chic options to stay warm that can maximize your indoor wardrobe as well as your outdoor ensembles. Chicastic has a great variety of scarves and hats that can make your winters fashion friendly.
When we think of winter accessories we usually tend to think of hats, scarves and gloves. While there are plenty of run-of-the-mill winter accessories made only to keep us warm, we often forget that they can be chic and stylish, too. Not only that, but there are some bits of jewelry that work best in winter that can add some glam to the wintry season.
Scarves are a great go-to winter accessory. They come in multitudes of styles, colors, prints, and fabrics and can be worn for any occasion if you accessorize correctly. A big, comfy knit infinity scarf always goes great with an over-sized sweater and leggings, while a silk scarf can still keep your neck warm when you’re heading to work or a formal event. It’s always good to have a small collection of scarves, in different colors or prints that suit you that you can use no matter what you’re wearing, where you’re headed, or how cold it is. Hats are also fashionable, whether you’re sporting a modern beanie or a retro felt cloche, and even though they can be removed once you reach your destination, they are perfectly acceptable to wear continuously. Gloves are versatile, too. You can go with simple knit gloves or mittens for a casual outing, or you can slip into some fur (or faux-fur) lined leather gloves for a more polished look.
You don’t have to discount wearing dresses once the winter months set it. Leggings and tights are hot accessories all year round and add some oomph while keeping your legs protected and warm despite the weather. A patterned or bold colored tight can make any winter outfit pop, and leggings are always comfy when paired with over-sized sweaters, or even with dresses and skirts as well for extra warmth. Layering is always in, and it definitely comes in handy when the weather calls for it. Don’t shy away from skirts, dresses, or any other leg-flattering pieces, especially when there is a whole world of leggings and tights to explore.
And of course, winter accessories can refer to winter jewelry as well. While jewelry trends change with the seasons, jewel-tones are usually synonymous with winter fashion, and while silver and gold are always in style, playing up these styles can really parallel the glittery frost outside your window and add that glamorous wintry shimmer to your look.
Like any season, winter has it’s share of accessories and styles, so don’t be afraid to mix and match and, most of all, stay warm! Chicastic has some fun winter accessories for women, that can be worn casually or formally to stay warm yet look fashionable.
Despite the weather, staying warm and cozy this winter can also be chic. By choosing the right items, you’ll never look too flab when trying to stay warm this season.
Layering is everyone’s best friend. Cardigans are an easy and versatile way to stay warm this winter. Loose fitting knit cardigans look great over tees or flannel button-downs and can be worn in a variety of ways to keep your outfits looking new and fresh all season without looking worn out. Vests, sweaters, and long-sleeved tees can be layered in any number of chic combinations and can give new life to tees and tanks you might otherwise put away for the season. Even printed thermal tops are trending! And remember, you are also safe in purchasing a few heavy-knit sweaters for the season. Wear them with skinny jeans or over thick paneled leggings and look great while keeping yourself warm.
A pashmina, chiffon, or a tube scarf is a great addition to any winter ensemble. Be sure to have several in your wardrobe to wear with multiple outfits on any occasion. Tie it around your neck to protect yourself from the elements while still accessorizing your outfit. Use it as a wrap-around for a dress when you go out to dinner or even just feeling a little chilly around the house. Even draping it over your shoulders gives warmth as well as a bit of that Old Hollywood feel. Scarves are great for any occasion and are essential to layering. If you want to play it up a little, choose a bold, jewel-toned scarf or funky animal print.
When it comes to footwear, it seems boots are in no matter what season it is, but winter is when they are put to the best use. Boots can keep the snow out of your soles as well as protect you from slipping and sliding out on the ice in dangerous weather, all while still looking stylish. Additionally, most boots give you some wiggle room to layer socks or even to wear leggings under skinny jeans or pants if you’re wearing a calf or knee-high boot, and can help trap the warmth. Also consider wearing wool socks or other garments. Wool is always chic when it comes to cozy and helps trap your body heat to keep you toasty.
Choose your items wisely, even thinner garments can be saved with the right warm accessories, whether it’s a scarf, plush leggings, or cardigan. Staying warm can also mean staying chic. Chicastic has a large variety of tube scarves, cardigans, pashminas and fashion scarves.
Accessories come and go, whether it’s due to the lifespans of trends or due to the change in season. Few items can stand the test of time and among them is the chiffon scarf. Not only can this chic chameleon adapt to the weather, but it can easily be manipulated to fit any wardrobe, any outfit and any style.\
It’s never a bad thing to have a wide variety of colors and styles in your chiffon scarf arsenal. Have some neutral, that are sure to match any outfit, some bold colors (so choose your favorite or whichever colors suit you best) and some pattern prints to liven up any solid ensemble.
The sheer versatility of chiffon scarves allow them to be worn in more than one way, and not all of them are around your neck! Depending on the season and the outfit, a chiffon scarf can add flare to any ensemble in a seemingly endless number of ways. As winter rolls in, the go-to scarf style is the easiest and most weather effective. Whether you loop your chiffon into an infinity scarf or tie a simple knot at your neck, you know you’ll be warm while remaining fashionable. It’s always good to keep a few scarves on hand in varying colors.
Chiffon scarves work outside of the box too. They can be draped dramatically over your shoulders, used as a wrap-around against a solid-print dress, or even wrapped around your head over an up-do for that Old Hollywood feel.
Once the ice begins to thaw and the temperature begins to rise, it may be time to set aside your coats and gloves, but that doesn’t mean your chiffon scarves have to go anywhere. Their silky, lightweight nature allow them to transition seamlessly into any spring or summer wardrobe. Brighter or lighter colors may be more in style in the warmer seasons, but prints never go out of style, and even darker colored chiffon scarves will still work great with lighter themed outfits as well. Summer is also the time for beach wrap-arounds, whether you’re wearing them as a full on dress or a flirty skirt, and can also be wrapped around your shoulders on chilly nights once the sun goes down.
Like any other accessory, chiffon scarves can be mixed and matched with just about anything, but not many other accessories can boast the ability to mix and match with the seasons. Chiffon scarves can liven any outfit at any time of year and bring new life to classic pieces while remaining a trusted partner to trendy ones as well.

Constructing holiday portraits is a difficult task every year no matter who you’re taking them of or with. Here are some tips to help make the process easier and to make a statement, fashion-wise and family-wise, that will stand the test of time.
The holidays are fast approaching and aside from gift brainstorming, a lot of us are finding ourselves putting in just as much effort thinking of our holiday portraits. Whether they’re with our family, friends, significant others, pets or solo, a holiday photo is how you’ll share this year with extended friends and family and remember 2013. But what to do, and what to wear?
If you’re thinking of a holiday portrait, chances are, you already have some ideas for your outfit in mind. Gather your favorite old family photos, magazine clippings, online finds and your own fave wardrobe pieces and begin storyboarding. Depending on who you’re planning on taking this momentous photo with, they may offer ideas as well. Decide on what that special “holiday feel” is for you and your fellow photo-takers and decide on a color family, or color palette, as the foundation for your photo. Remember, there’s still a lot of room for play here. While red and green are prominent, wintry colors and jewel tones are also indicative of the season.
Remember, this is a photo that you’ll want to cherish with loved ones for years to come. Try to pick timeless yet flattering pieces, and throw in some unique accessories. That way, your outfit will last the test of time, while your accessories and smaller embellishments will remind you of 2013 and what made this year so distinctive, in style as well as memory. Not only that, but you’ll still be fashionable when you send out those photos this year!
Once you’ve got your theme and outfit down pat, convene with the rest of the cast. If you’re posing with others, you’ll have to make sure your photo will be visually coordinated but not overly matching like an awkward family photo. Communicate with everyone else and gather everyone’s ideas and make sure you’re taking a holiday photo you’ll all enjoy and not regret with embarrassment in the years to come. Finally, when you’ve all decided on a shared color palette or style theme, gather round and smile! Remember, this photo isn’t just about style or how well constructed the end result is. While these factors matter, the photo is more about being with those you love and sharing the joys of friendship and family. Before you get too crazy micromanaging the minor details of your holiday photo, remember to relax and have fun and let that holiday spirit shine through.
