How To Dress In Humid Weather

1.jpg

Humid weather is nobody’s best friend. You sweat more, you hair starts to have a mind of its own, and your clothes start to become your enemy! But you don’t have to swelter through the summer months completely devoid of style! There are ways to work your wardrobe so that you can look chic and fantastic, even in humid weather.

Wear clothing made of fabrics that dry quickly and are breathable. Natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, rayon, jersey and chambray are great choices. Stick to light colors, light weights and loose fits. Dark colors absorb the heat so avoid those as much as possible. Wear a breathable sports bra for comfort instead of your traditional wire and cups which can collect sweat in your bosom.

Though if you are in and out of an office or mall, it might be a good idea to carry a loose cardigan with you (or keep on in your car) because the air conditioning will be on full blast.

You definitely want to keep the air moving around your feet. Don’t stuff your toes in thick sock and sneakers. Wear some cute sandals. It’s a great excuse to treat yourself to a pedicure!

Your hair, depending on its texture, will do wild and crazy things. Combating frizz is a common problem. You may want to tie a scarf around your hair to keep it up out of your face, and to contain it. It might be too much during summer to fight the texture of your hair, so tuck it out of the way if you can!

Keep your accessories light and small. A big statement necklace can feel like a boulder around your neck and a large purse will feel even heavier when you’re feeling hot. Stick to smaller earrings, chain necklaces, and lightweight bangles or stretch bracelets. Instead of a large tote, keep a small lightweight clutch on hand!

Stay Warm This Winter With Ponchos!

One of the hardest decisions to make when getting dressed in the winter is how to stay warm while being trendy. You don’t want to bundle up so much that you blend in with the neighborhood snowman. But you don’t want to be so cold that you become a snowman.

So what do you do?

Chicastic recommends a fashion trend that is super cute and practical…ponchos!

Just like a cardigan a poncho goes with almost any outfit. You can wear it with jeans, leggings or even a dress.

They are incredibly comfortable and it feels like you’re wearing a blanket. It’s perfect for a chilly office with the look of professionalism still present.

Check out a few ways Chicastic would wear a poncho:

DressPoncho

A black poncho over a dress keeps the outfit classic without looking bulky. Accentuate your look with a deep color envelope clutch.

 

BlackRedPoncho

Make a sleek all black outfit standout with a red poncho. It’s the only statement piece you’ll need!

 

DayPoncho

This white poncho is perfect for daytime shopping! Pair it with jeans for a bright look during your black Friday shopping.

What to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner

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!

“Roads..Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Roads”

Anyone with a healthy love of movies, and/or all things 80’s knows that this coming Wednesday is an important day in cinematic history “30 years” in the making! On Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at 4:29 Marty Mcfly arrives “in the future!!” The beloved “Back to the Future” trilogy first thrilled audiences with the initial film of the franchise in 1985, and introduced us to Marty McFly, who travels back to 1955 in a Time Machine made out of a DeLorean created by his friend, Doctor Emmett “Doc” Brown.  In the second film, released in 1989, but also partially set in 1985, Marty, Doc Brown, Jennifer and Einstein travel 30 years into the future to October 21 2015 to thwart an event that would unravel the future of the McFly family. This film gave us a hilarious view of what folks in the 80’s thought “the future”  would look like. Well the future is officially now! Let Chicastic help you find the perfect outfit to wear to a screening of “Jaws 19” or shopping for a new Hover Board!

It’s almost impossible to pull off the classic Marty’s look without looking exceedingly masculine, which is totally cool if you’re going for that style, but not if you want to keep it softer and more playful. To make your own fun version of the famous Mcfly look, start with our corset in wine red. Replace the denim jacket with this navy blue cardigan.Add a fitted plaid shirt and the signature puffy “life preserver” vest.  For a cute nod to the film, add this bolt of lightning ring, all 1.21 gigawatts of it! Add a pair of light denim skinny jeans and a simple pair of white Nike’s you’re ready to “make like a tree and get out of here.”

Jennifer is a unwitting participant in her trip to 2015, and finds out some shocking news about her possible future…. like getting married in the “Chapel O’ Love” and in-laws that tote re-hydrated pizza. To get her ’85 look, start with our floral print leggings. Next, add a long sleeve white shirt under our royal blue sleeveless cardigan. Put on some chunky socks and pair of plain white or grey sneakers and you’re ready for a day in Hill Valley!

Are you more of a fan of what everyone in 2015 is supposed to be wearing?  This involves a mix and match of different patterns and materials. One way to recreate this look is to start with a pair of our abstract pattern leggings along with our red and black patent leather bustier. Next, add this multi-color triangle statement necklace. It adds hard lines seen in the film’s fashion, and the colors really make it work. Add a pair of shoes that’ll really pop, like these bright pumps. Then use the makeup brush kit to give yourself a futuristic makeover.

Let Chicastic get you out the door at 88 MPH!
