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.
At Chicastic find all these fashionable items and more for your student.
There are few seasonally appropriate patterns like the floral print. This design has made a huge comeback in recent years so why not take advantage and add some blooming foliage to your spring and summer ensembles.
Floral prints are perfect for the spring and summer time. They come in a variety of color palettes, from neutral to neon, to bold, and earth tones, you name it. The nature of these patterns is easily reflected the blooming foliage you can readily see this time of year so why not use it to inspire some of your outfits? Add some life and dimension to your look by adding one of these fashion accessories or statement fashion pieces.
Accent or statement pieces can work much like accessories. Leggings, printed skinny jeans and the like can be mixed and matched in any number of ways to create various outfits. These are especially good for making your basics look more dynamic and thoughtful. Plus pairing solid tops or tees with these items adds just the right amount of balance to your outfit. You can also use clothing items like sweaters or cardigans in the way you would use an accessory. Add some depth and color to an outfit of solid colors and patterns with a floral cardigan or shrug. Use some of the colors used in the print or wear it over neutrals and basics to maximize your look.
Smaller fashion accessories are also great for flaunting your springtime florals and floral prints. Canvas bags are especially popular, whether they come in the form of a trendy backpack, hobo bag, or crossbody. If you are looking for something a little more classy then a small clutch will do the trick as well. This sort of handbag can be worn to both casual and more formal events easily. Scarves are another great option and can be added to most any outfit. Not only that but they serve a practical purpose, too! They go wonderfully under any light jacket, fitted blazer, or sweater.
You can also opt for jewelry and other statement pieces. Large bib necklaces can feature floral themes and designs, whether in metalwork or in inset fabric with lace and other materials. Large chunky bangles can feature this design as well and can be easily added to ensembles. But if you’re looking for a more subtle way to add this print to your look, you can look beyond jewelry to other small fashion accessories like skinny belts or shoes. These can help bring balance to an outfit, whether you use the design elsewhere or simply wish to tie together an ensemble of different colors and solid pieces.

Face it. We are not built the same. Some of us are petite and sweet, others are tall and statuesque while others are curvy and voluptuous. We are all familiar with the basic fashion rules to help accentuate the parts of our physique that we like the best while hiding the parts we are less happy to share. Those rules extend to the purses we carry. The right purse can make all the difference in complimenting your body type. Take a look at the list below to help you decide which purse flatters your shape best.
For all body types, please remember to consider the shape of the handbag before purchasing. It is a good idea to pick a purse that is shaped opposite to your type. Generally, curvy women should carry angled purses while a woman whose shape is less round should carry a bag with softer edges. A good rule to follow is to not carry the handbag closest to the area of your body that you do not want to draw attention to.
Petite – Smaller statured women should be careful not to carry a purse that is too big. Large bags will overwhelm a small frame. Medium to small is a better size to shoot for. Longer straps are more flattering than shorter straps, so long as the straps are not too lengthy. Small clutches, miniature backpacks and petite totes are all great for shorter women.
Tall – While the tote bag may overwhelm the petite woman, they absolutely flatter a taller person. Your long arms are accentuated and in proportion while carrying this bag. However, make sure the handles are long enough to carry the bag on your shoulder. Shorter handles will not look proportionate and add awkwardness. A satchel is your favorite color is also another good choice.
Curvy – Purses that land right above the waistline is very flattering. Make sure to avoid small clutches and purses as they may get lost against your figure. Larger envelope clutches are flattering, as are larger satchels and totes with short to medium length straps.
Remember, as with all fashion trends, do not be tempted to wear styles that don’t suit your body type. It is better to stay with classic lines that fit well rather than a fly-by-night trend that is unflattering to your body. Take your time when deciding which purse is right for you.
