Back to School
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.
Another great back to school item is a fashionable backpack, tote, or satchel for their school supplies. Try this beige small backpack with a front flap or a snakeskin pattern glossy hobo handbag.
At Chicastic find all these fashionable items and more for your student.

Scarves For Springs
Scarves don’t just keep out the cold, they also happen to be great, simple, and versatile accessories. While they may not be as necessary as they are in winter, spring still carries a bit of a chill, making scarves are still completely appropriate to wear.
Fleece or flannel scarves are a bit too hot and stuffy for spring, but chiffon scarves, and knitted tube scarves are still comfortable and do their job. These accessories are lightweight and can still be used to layer when it gets exceptionally chilly outside. They can be worn with loose cardigans, light jackets, loose sweaters, blazers and they can even be worn alone over your top. Additionally, if you’ve forgotten your sweater or jacket, a long scarf can double as a makeshift pull over if tied and worn specifically. If you have an infinity scarf you can twist it and un-scrunch the fabric so it lays flat to act like a shrug. Similarly you can flatten any scarf to wear over your shoulders as a shawl as well. You can use these looks in a pinch or you can use them intentionally for a unique look.
Spring also allows us to play around with bright and refreshing colors. Pale pastels and some brighter, more neon colors are now in style and are totally appropriate for the season. Neutrals are always in style but spring brings color back into the world and so should your scarves! Try some pastels or pale yellows, pinks, greens, blues or purples to liven up a basic outfit. You can also try playing around with springtime prints like floral or paisley to evoke the spirit of the season. While floral patterns are an obvious spring choice, there are other patterns out there that are spring appropriate due to their color palette. Prints and patterns that use a lot of those previously mentioned pales and pastels, or use a lot of green, really evoke the feeling of the rejuvenation that has come to be synonymous with the season.
Chiffon Scarves can be worn with both casual and more professional or formal outfits depending on the material. Bring some new life to a few of your winter pieces and forego having to re-haul your entire wardrobe. Knowing how to accessorize according to the time of year and the occasion, you can mix and match most piece to last you well through the year. Check out the chiffon scarves at Chicastic now!
Dress Up A T-Shirt
We all have tees but sometimes we need to dress them up last minute, or simply don’t know how else to wear it with other than jeans. Here are some simple accessory ideas that make any tee look more put-together. Let’s face it, tees are comfortable and they’re also convenient. They’re the ultimate go-to outfit option when running out the door and there is nothing wrong with having a closet full of them, right? And while we may feel like wearing a tee shirt all the time, we may not always want to rock that same old basic tee look. Fortunately, t-shirts are some of the most versatile pieces and can be transformed easily depending on how you wear it and accessorize it.
There are some easy outfit fixes for dressing up a tee. When it comes to mixing and matching clothing, there are several options. If you’re going for a flirty look, wearing a tee with a floral skirt can add some texture and complexity while still retaining the basic t-shirt’s inherent comfort. You’ll be totally date ready but still be totally comfortable. Wearing a tee with a printed or colored pant is also a great option. When wearing a bold pant, it’s always best to wear them with a solid top so a basic tee in a matching color (or simple black or white) will do perfectly. The focus of the outfit will be your legs, and a pattern or bold color will instantly make the tee appear polished, the entire ensemble put-together and balanced. And if you’re looking to wear a tee in autumn, winter or early spring, a cardigan is a great way to dress it up and keep you warm.
Accessories have the ability to redefine most clothing pieces and basic t-shirts are some of the best canvases. Depending on what you choose to wear with it, this staple, everyday piece can see countless reincarnations and never once be the same. All of your accessory options are simple and easy. A statement necklace instantly adds glam and color, especially when it features a bold color or pattern. Similarly, you can choose a colored or patterned chiffon scarf to wear around your head, neck or shoulders, each with their own drastically different look. Vests also work well, which works a bit like a cardigan but acts more like an accessory. Depending on the fabric and style of the vest, you can drastically dress up any plain outfit, especially if it features lace or satin-like fabric.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match! A tube scarf and a floral skirt can create a fun and flirty outfit, while a scarf and a printed pant will have you looking like you just walked off the runway. T-shirts are extremely adaptable, but sometimes we forget they can be worn with anything other than jeans! Play around and experiment with what you own and find just how many combinations you can muster. Chicastic has some great tube scarves and jewelry that can really help make a tee look dressy.
Scarves And Hats
We usually associate hats and scarves as necessities of winter and we often forget that the cold weather is really just a great excuse to show off more accessories and styles. Since we’re limited to wearing a coat in the cold weather, hiding out outfits, hats and scarves can really make an outwear ensemble a true, thought-out outfit.
Aside from bundling up, layering is totally in, and scarves are key. They can be worn in an infinite number of ways and even worn as additional layered clothing, such as in a shawl, wrap-around or cowl. Even if you don’t tie your scarf in a creative way, a basic infinity scarf or oblong scarf looks great when worn tucked inside a closed coat and are always in style. A bold bundle of chiffon, silk or even cotton can brighten your winter outerwear and turn it into an outfit instead of just a shield against the cold. Prints and patterns can make any simple coat pop, and even if you’re wearing a bold winter jacket, a scarf will fit perfectly in the nook around to your neck and add some winter glam.
Hats also possess a wealth of possibility. The styles are endless! Most of us worry about hat hair and have other similar concerns when it comes to hats, but many hats, such as beanies and cloches, are totally acceptable to wear indoors as well, making these accessories part of a daily hairstyle instead of just an outdoor tool to stay warm. While we do wear hats to protect our heads, faces and especially our ears against the bitter air of the season, these styles are becoming more and more popular and can be worn with most outfits and are not just limited for use outdoors.
If you want to maximize your winter wardrobe, invest in several scarves (in a few different colors, prints and fabrics that suit your general style) and several hat styles that suit you and define different kinds of outfits in order to create as many combinations as possible. This also ensures that you have an accessory for any occasion, whether it is casual, professional or formal. When you hear the news telling you that a blizzard is headed your way or that temperatures are drastically dropping, know that you have chic options to stay warm that can maximize your indoor wardrobe as well as your outdoor ensembles. Chicastic has a great variety of scarves and hats that can make your winters fashion friendly.
