Silk Scarf Wrap

Scarves are an invaluable fashion accessory all year round. Here are some ways to wear a silk scarf this spring.

There is no fashion accessory quite as versatile as the scarf. It is simultaneously practical and fashionable and can be manipulated to create and match countless looks, outfits and ensembles on any number of occasions. Each of the seasons tends to call on different materials when it comes to fashion in general but these accessories are no exception. While there are some materials, like cotton and silk, that are appropriate year round, there is something a little more special about silk. Silk can be worn no matter what the season is, but always calls for a classier look than any of the other fabrics. Adding silk instantly makes any look more sleek and a silk scarf wrap is one great way to add it to your wardrobe.

The great thing about these fashion accessories is that there is no one right way to wear them. Let your rendition of a scarf inspire the rest of your ensemble or the other way around. These simple but rich colors are perfect for spring, adding a bit of extra oomph to any rainy day. You can choose to match your outfit with the overall color of the scarf or use contrasting colors when it comes to both. Use it to brighten up an otherwise dark outfit, add a splash of color to a spring trench coat if the weather calls for it, or use it to add some fun to an office outfit. Even adding it to a more casual outfit will dress it up a little. Depending on the color of the scarf and those used in your overall outfit this accessory can add a fun touch while the silk adds some elegant texture to whatever you are wearing.

When it comes to tying or wearing this accessory, you have several options available to you. Wearing it close and tight about the neck can give you a bit of an Old Hollywood look, just as if you were to wear it over a hairdo like a kerchief. As the name suggests, you can absolutely wear this piece as a wrap around, whether it is simply draped over your shoulders or used more widely over your torso as makeshift cardigan or kimono. There are even several ways to tie this piece as a wrap, which may include simply folding it into a triangle, draping over your shoulders and tying in the front, you can wear it as a side wrap or one-shouldered wrap, or even loop and tie the ends so it makes an infinity scarf and looping it under your arms and over your neck as a makeshift cardigan which can be bunched at the shoulders for texture or draped loosely over your shoulders to look more like a kimono.

You can find great colors of silk scarf wraps and other scarves at Chicastic.

New Years’ Eve Party Ideas

New Year’s Eve is the last big night of the year to celebrate. Here are some simple tips to bid 2013 farewell and greet 2014 in style.

New Year’s Eve is all about going out with the old so we can usher in the new, and we all want the year to go out on a high note, right? While we still have a few more months of  winter to look forward to, your New Year’s Eve party can play up the glittery season with some positive sparkle to see the year off right.

First thing’s first with any party: What is your theme going to be? We all know it’s a New Year’s Eve party, but what kind of tone are you looking to set for the last day of 2013? Are you looking to have a flirty cocktail party with all of your guests dressed to the nines? Are you going to have a classy midnight dinner party? Or are you going for some more casual fun? Regardless of your theme, glitter and sparkle are welcome in any kind of decor. Recall the big ball dropping and the style of that classic Times Square scene that your guests will be gathered around to watch, no matter what party theme you choose, counting down the final moments of 2013. Consider stringing up lights to mimic the night sky and keep the lights dimmed, this way your shimmering decor can catch the light and create that perfect magical, wintry atmosphere. Play up or play down the glitter and glam depending on your theme, perhaps use silvers and golds if you’re going for a more formal dinner party. With some holiday shine, you can glam up the cold and play up the New Year and bring Times Square to your party.

When it comes to food, it also depends on your theme. If you’re having a fun cocktail party, serve glittering cocktails using champagne and add some bold color with different juices, such as cranberry or orange. Serve fun hors d’oeuvres to keep your guests up and about socializing. If you’re having a calmer, classy dinner party, consider serving simpler drinks with light but filling dishes. No matter what you choose, make sure to have plenty of champagne on hand!

As far as activities go, it’s always important to keep things positive and fun. After all, this is the last day of the year and you want to end it right! Games like charades or card games are always a party favorite, but ones that incorporate New Year’s resolutions are great to have to. Have everyone write down a wish, or however many you want, for the new year on a slip of paper and use the pieces as confetti when the ball drops.

Another and most important thing to think about is your party outfit. You can always wear your little black dress but accessorize it with affordable and fashionable things like a nice rhinestone stud evening bag, dangle earrings and bracelets etc.

It’s important to have fun and to get everyone excited for the year to come. When spent with close friends and family, any celebration will set the perfect tone for the year to come. To find great accessories for your New Years’ Eve Party outfit, visit Chicastic now.
