Mint Stone Statement Necklace

Statement pieces are everywhere now and can help transform outfits of any caliber. Use this mint stone statement necklace to add some refreshing color to any spring ensemble.

Mint has been a signature staple color for a couple of years now but it is still here to stay. This shade provides a refreshing addition to any ensemble, brightening up your look with minimal, classy effort. It works to lighten an outfit while also adding that hint or splash of color. It’s perfect for using as an accent, whether it be a single statement piece like a blazer or a pointed toe shoe, or even a statement necklace. Necklaces, jewelry and other accessories are great for when it comes to adding color to an ensemble to create balance or when adding depth and texture. These pieces can be used to stand out on their own, to help bring out specific elements of your outfit or can work as inspiration for the outfit itself.

This mint stone statement necklace can work in many ways. One of the simplest ways to wear it is with a basic outfit. If you’re wearing your favorite tee and jeans, this necklace can add some color and class, instantly jazzing up your overall look. Wearing it with light neutral colored basics works best, especially if you’re looking to make a simple outfit look more purposeful. Additionally, this accessory goes well with other classic basics like the ever popular little black dress. By adding similar jewelry, whether of the same color, simple gold, or even the entire matching jewelry set can bring the entire outfit together. This will help add a sufficient amount of color that is perfect for the spring and the coming summer. A dress with a simple, low neckline or one that is sleeveless works best. This way, the attention is drawn to the necklace, allowing it to work its magic.

Other colors work just as well. A warm toned ensemble using warm golds, browns, beiges and similar shades accent the gold in the necklace, allowing the mint stones to offset your look beautifully. This way, the mint stones stand out but the gold also ties in the rest of the outfit by mirroring those similar, warm shades. Alternatively, you can use the mint of the stone insets to bring out any mint or similar shades that are used in a pattern or print you happen to be wearing, whether it is a patterned top, a printed pant or embellished clutch or shoe.

Pieces like this can help maximize your wardrobe this spring and summer. Use it to accent a formal or professional outfit or let it help you add oomph to any of your basic ensembles.

Cocktail Rings

Jewelry can do a lot more for an outfit than you may think. Cocktail jewelry works great for formal events but can be used for nights out as well as for the workplace.

Jewelry should be fun. Being able to mix and match pieces and create different looks is part of all the fun. While some sets work best when complete and worn together, mixing and matching pieces, whether they be jewelry or clothing, really maximizes your wardrobe beyond imagination. Wearing a different set of accessories with the same dress can create two completely different looks and it does not require you to spend any extra money. While an initial investment in a variety of clothing and accessories is vital, what is most important is each pieces ability to adapt to other pieces. This increases their inherent value ten fold. Cocktail jewelry is great when it comes to accessories. They can be worn with simply silver jewelry, bold statement pieces, or even by themselves.

Cocktail rings tend to be big and bold and work best with minimal jewelry. This doesn’t mean they can’t be worn with anything else, however. As stated before, cocktail rings can be worn with simple jewelry or other bold pieces. This mostly goes for necklaces. A cocktail ring is basically a statement necklace for your hands. Wearing one goes a long way, and considering their size, it is best to not wear it with other rings or even a bracelet. This ring, though it seems small on its own, goes a long way. Wearing one with a necklace, whether simple or bold, is perfect. Since the necklace and ring are far apart from one another, they can balance each other out if desired.

These accessories can also be versatile. A bright or fun cocktail ring is great for daytime wear, whether you’re headed to a big company lunch, an engagement party, or any other activity that takes place later in the day. Rings with color or with more daring shapes and designs work best for these kinds of occasions. Use one of these rings to brighten up your outfit and add some fun and flare to your look. If you’re headed to a more somber or formal event in the evening, then simpler, sleeker cocktail jewelry is a safer bet. Ones with a more minimalist design are adaptable but no less impressive. These rings are a bit more classic and timeless and can be made to match any elegant look.

No matter where you’re headed, one of these cocktail rings is sure to fit your needs while adding a bit of that Old Hollywood glamour to your look. Whether you opt for daytime fun or evening classic, one of these pieces is sure to flatter your fingers. Find the right ring for you at Chicastic.

What to Wear on a First Date

First dates are all about making lasting and meaningful impressions. Impress your date and look your best while still staying true to yourself.

First dates are fun but can also be nerve wracking. One of the most stressful parts is figuring out what in the world you might want to wear. First dates are a launching pad for first impressions. Even if you have known the person for a while, the setting and atmosphere of calling it a “date” make room for getting to know one another in a totally different light than before. And while you want to make a good lasting impression, it is also important to remember to stay comfortable!

Your initial date with a person should be stress-free. It should be about comfortably getting to know one another, opening up, and learning about one another. While what you wear on your first date will depend on where your first date happens to be, make sure to be yourself! You don’t want to give off the wrong impression. But at the same time, a first date allows you to reinvent yourself a bit so don’t be afraid to have fun!

If you’re going out for a casual coffee or lunch date, then a glammed up casual outfit will work best. Since the locale is more laid back, you can wear your favorite day-to-day outfit and add some bold accessories to dress it up a little for the occasion. Feel free to dress up a casual v-neck tee with a flowy skirt and a chiffon scarf. You can also wear it with a printed or colored skinny jean, an eye-catching statement necklace and flats. This way, you’ll look great wearing something comfortable that shows off your personal style, and you’ll still look glamorous.

But what if you’re going out to a fancy dinner, or perhaps to a club or some other event? A little black dress goes a long way for just these sorts of occasions. They can be paired with a unique studded clutch or beaded coinpurse along with a full set of cocktail jewelry. You can dress up this look with your accessories and shoes, though try to pick things a little more on the comfier side because you won’t want to divert your attention from your date to your aching feet!

While you may want to pull out all the stops for a first date and use every trick in the book, the most important thing you should remember is to make sure you’re comfortable. Sure, you want to look great, and you totally can! But first dates are about getting to know one another in a more personal setting and you want to be able to devote your attention to your date, not worried that your dress will ride up or that your heels are killing you.
