Norwegians know how to celebrate winter the right way. They have the word “koselig” which roughly translates to cozy. It’s really more than that though. It can be warmth, close knit gatherings over a home-cooked meal, candlelight and much more. … Continue reading
Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! For many people, this is a time to relax and enjoy time with family and friends. For others, it’s a time to be super stressed while enjoying time with family and friends. Chicastic is here to eliminate at least one source of stress…what are you going to wear!? We’ll help you find something you’ll adore and even you mother-in-law will love!
This time of year, there are two major factors that come into play when it comes to a late Fall wardrobe; colors and layers. You should stick for the most part to darker colors and earth tones, but that doesn’t mean boring! You can always add a pop of color, without looking like you’re ready for Easter Sunday already. Wearing those colors, like browns, maroons, and dark grey, also opens up a world of possibilities for jewelry and accessories. Layers are important because the weather can be unpredictable this time of year and you may not want to spend the next four months in oversized sweaters. It’s always good to have a few stand-by pieces that can layer with almost anything, like your favorite cardigan .
If you’re attending a formal Thanksgiving celebration, a long sleeve dress in a darker color, with a pair of our heels, in a color like silver or gold to make your outfit a pop, would be perfect. If you can’t find a long sleeved dress, layer with a cardigan that matches your outfit color of choice. A black cardigan is always a safe bet because it can match anything, but dark blue and mustard yellow are also perfect for the Holiday. Top off with a cocktail ring or necklace and you’ll be talk of the party…besides the turkey!
If your Thanksgiving festivities are more casual, you can always wear a nice pair of dark wash denim with a cute top, but then you can run into the, “on no I ate too much why did I decide to wear jeans!?” conundrum. If you foresee that in your future, you may want to go with a pair of leggings instead. We have many different patterns to choose from. Pair with a solid color dress or top and you’re good to go! Fashion and comfort in one package! Accessorize with a scarf if it gets chilly or simply because it looks good!
Let Chicastic help you get you ready for the Holidays!
