Back to School

Stores are already gearing up for back to school shopping. Items for the dorm, school supplies, and fall clothes are being displayed. Want to get your teenager or college bound child prepared for the cool weather? Then check out the scarves, hats, and bags available at Chicastic.

Infinity tube scarves are a warm option for the months ahead. They’re available in thick or thin knit versions or even with fringe. Try a vibrant teal or a light pink. Maybe a multicolor light and dark grey tube scarf would match your child’s style more. Oblong scarves work well for the autumn weather too and offer a lot of ways to wear them. For example, they can be wrapped around tightly for warmth, hung loosely for a cool style, or looped and pulled through for a simple chic look.

Don’t forget a warm hat to go with your scarf. A cotton two toned fisherman style hat offers a clean autumn look. A beanie hat with a leather strap comes in beautiful fall colors. Or try a knitted winter slouchy hat that comes in grey, off white, or black. If you have a gal that likes more structure, then try a wool bowler hat.

Another great back to school item is a fashionable backpack, tote, or satchel for their school supplies. Try this beige small backpack with a front flap or a snakeskin pattern glossy hobo handbag.

At Chicastic find all these fashionable items and more for your student.

Throwback Thursday – Clarissa Explains It All

Clarissa Darling on Clarissa Explains It All had some great early nineties fashion. She loved layers, loud prints, loud colors, and black boots. What would she wear today if we bumped into her?

She might be wearing a polka dot chiffon scarf in neon yellow to get the layers she loves, a bright color, and a pattern too. We’re sure she’d also still be mixing patterns, but to bring it up to date, they’d be in the same color family. She might bring out the color of the polka dot and pair it with a striped shirt in the same color family.

Another style she enjoyed was bright colored socks with black shoes. Today she could incorporate bright tights into her look and rock some black ankle booties. She might even have updated her loose black leather jacket to a cropped bomber jacket.

Clarissa loved her statement pieces so jewelry and clutches would be a great way for her to still express herself. A statement necklace like this vintage multi layer collar necklace would be a unique piece. For purses she’d let her imagination run wild. Anything from knuckle duster clutches to give her a tough feel, a glass bugle bead hard box clutch for a unique pattern, to a bright chevron straw and matching leather envelope clutch for her love of color.

Regardless of what she’d be wearing, you know she’d be doing something she was passionate about.

To get a look like a modern day Clarissa, check out Chicastic for great accessories.
