Halloween in your Office

It seems like Halloween costumes for Women from big box party stores are getting shorter and skimpier by the year. Thus making it harder to find something fun yet appropriate for work. Even though Halloween is on a Saturday this year, many office will be celebrating on Friday the 30th so you need to be prepared. Chicastic has a lot of ways you can create a great looks for Halloween whether you work at a school, in  an office or anything in between.

Our line of leggings are the perfect jumping off point for several animal themed costumes. They come in snake, cheetah, leopard print. We also have  a zebra print pattern. Simply pair with a shirt or blouse of corresponding pattern or complementary colors.  For all but the snake, for which a simple forked tongue painted on by the bottom lip will do, color in your nose with black or brown face paint and draw on some whiskers. Top off with a pair of ears and a tail and you’re ready to roll!

In addition to animal themed costumes, with these star patterned leggings available in both dark blue and black,  you can go as the night sky or use them as the background for another object in the solar system! Then get creative and take a black or dark blue t-shirt and create the planet or other celestial bodies any way you desire. Some methods include puff paint and bleach, or you buy or make small 3-d models you can attach.

You could take it back to the 80’s and sport this top and tank combo off the shoulder. Pair with leggings, the more colorful the better like these patterned ones, sneakers like high-top Converse or slip on Vans, leg warmers, and a side pony tail. Top it off with a sweat band and a pair larger than life hoop earrings and you’re basically Olivia Newton John.

When you’re ready to go out on Halloween night and want to jazz your costume up a bit, our line of corsets are a perfect way to do a “sexy” costume on your own terms! Let Chicastic help you find your perfect costume no matter what the occasion!

Mix and Match Animal Print

Some of you may think that mixing different animal prints together is impossible. It can be quite doable if you know what you’re doing…

Mixing and matching patterns can definitely be tricky. It is very much like matching colors and uses many of the same elements in order to do so successfully and yet is also more complex. When it comes to mixing animal print there is a way to make it possible.

The first rule about wearing more than one pattern in general is to be subtle. Too much of both will definitely overpower your look so you will have to find just the right balance. One way to go is use prints that use the same color scheme, such as black and brown or black and white. This way the patterns essentially “match” and you can break up the outfit with solid colored pieces and accessories that either offset or tone down the overall look. One thing you can do for instance is say wear a black and white cheetah print top with a neutral snakeskin clutch under a solid cardigan and with a solid colored pant to add balance.

Another thing you can do is mix prints that are the same or similar but use differing color palettes so that there is still some symmetry there but is made all the more dynamic and interesting. You wouldn’t want to wear one thing right over another so it’s best to choose your pieces wisely. If you’re going with a pant and top that feature patterns, then break it up with a belt, bag, scarf or even a combination of all three. You can use a neutral color like beige or black that will always be safe but bold colors can work too that will make more of a statement without making your outfit look too busy.

While it is doable to perhaps combine two large pieces featuring a pattern together, they can be used to much better effect if used more subtly. Such as in the example above, one piece is a larger clothing and one is an accessory. This way, you can still mix and match if the look isn’t working for you and the smaller pieces works more to accent and offset the larger one. Wearing an animal print top with a different patterned shoe or bag is a good example of this use. Also, the pieces are not too close to one another so they do not clash. Adding pieces of clothing and accessories puts distance between them and balances out your entire look.
