Corsets for your valentine

Corsets are a hot vintage item and suit the upcoming Valentine’s Day season. Vintage is totally in right now, whether you’re rocking a truly vintage find or an inspired piece. No matter what the era, nostalgia always has a romantic flare to it and corsets are no exception. They can be flirty or feisty depending on how you wear them, and will suit just about anyone now that the most romantic holiday of the year is upon us.

Corsets are more versatile than most people may give them credit for. Depending on the type of corset, color, fabric, and even what it is worn with, this vintage item can be worn in so many ways and can be manipulated to meet any Valentine’s Day agenda. What initially comes to mind are outfits that may consist of nothing but a corset, and this of course is a great gift if you are planning on a special night of alone time with your Valentine. There’s a cut and color for every personality; there are dainty, light colored or floral print corsets for a fun and flirty date or there are more bold pieces featuring deep, sultry colors and lots of lace. But don’t go thinking that corsets are only to be worn behind closed doors. These classic romantic pieces can be worn with slimming jeans if your girl is more of a rocker chick, or can be worn over a long-sleeved shirt or even a basic tee for a more casual and comfortable look.

And corsets don’t just belong to the fashion territory of yesteryear. As certain vintage pieces re-enter the fashion scene, their initial styles are also reinterpreted to appeal to a more modern audience. While having a classic piece is always great, the look doesn’t suit everyone and perhaps doesn’t match everyone’s tastes. If you’re shopping for a more modern girl, there are modern options. A simpler, sleeker corset in perhaps leather, faux leather or other smooth material may be more her style, mixing classic with contemporary. These old-fashioned pieces can also be paired with a fitted blazer and slimming pant for a more modern feel, and are perfect for a date night to boot!

The possibilities are endless. Just like any fashion piece or accessory, there is bound to be one in style for just about everyone. No matter what her style or personal preference, the corset remains a romantic fashion icon, and makes the perfect gift for the passionate holiday season. Chicastic has a ton of beautiful corsets, so get her measurements and find her a lovely corset for Valentine’s day.

Winter Fashion Accessories

When we think of winter accessories we usually tend to think of hats, scarves and gloves. While there are plenty of run-of-the-mill winter accessories made only to keep us warm, we often forget that they can be chic and stylish, too. Not only that, but there are some bits of jewelry that work best in winter that can add some glam to the wintry season.

Scarves are a great go-to winter accessory. They come in multitudes of styles, colors, prints, and fabrics and can be worn for any occasion if you accessorize correctly. A big, comfy knit infinity scarf always goes great with an over-sized sweater and leggings, while a silk scarf can still keep your neck warm when you’re heading to work or a formal event. It’s always good to have a small collection of scarves, in different colors or prints that suit you that you can use no matter what you’re wearing, where you’re headed, or how cold it is. Hats are also fashionable, whether you’re sporting a modern beanie or a retro felt cloche, and even though they can be removed once you reach your destination, they are perfectly acceptable to wear continuously. Gloves are versatile, too. You can go with simple knit gloves or mittens for a casual outing, or you can slip into some fur (or faux-fur) lined leather gloves for a more polished look.

You don’t have to discount wearing dresses once the winter months set it. Leggings and tights are hot accessories all year round and add some oomph while keeping your legs protected and warm despite the weather. A patterned or bold colored tight can make any winter outfit pop, and leggings are always comfy when paired with over-sized sweaters, or even with dresses and skirts as well for extra warmth. Layering is always in, and it definitely comes in handy when the weather calls for it. Don’t shy away from skirts, dresses, or any other leg-flattering pieces, especially when there is a whole world of leggings and tights to explore.

And of course, winter accessories can refer to winter jewelry as well. While jewelry trends change with the seasons, jewel-tones are usually synonymous with winter fashion, and while silver and gold are always in style, playing up these styles can really parallel the glittery frost outside your window and add that glamorous wintry shimmer to your look.

Like any season, winter has it’s share of accessories and styles, so don’t be afraid to mix and match and, most of all, stay warm! Chicastic has some fun winter accessories for women, that can be worn casually or formally to stay warm yet look fashionable.
