How To Make Your Wardrobe Exciting?

Wardrobe basics can be boring on their own. The reason is because they need to stay versatile to complement many different styles and personalities. It is easy to take an article of clothing at face value, but why not take a chance and dress it up a bit? The idea is to add some polish to your look. The accessories you choose can add elements of style that is uniquely you. Here are some common outfit combinations and ways you can dress them up. Small and subtle changes can mean a world of difference in your outfit.

The little black dress is a wardrobe staple that has potential for some amazing style. However a lot of women are afraid of taking it to the next level. They play it safe by wearing black heels, carrying a black clutch purse and wearing a solid colored pashmina. Instead of the safe route, why not spice things up a bit by ditching the black accessories and replacing them with a pair of leopard print peep toe heels, a bright red clutch and a bold statement necklace.

Another basic outfit is the classic jeans and a t-shirt. If worn alone, it just looks sloppy and boring. Wear a pair of snakeskin print sandals, drape a soft chiffon scarf in your favorite color around your neck, and carry a satchel with a chain strap. Add a cute newsboy cap to finish off this adorable look!

A work outfit usually consists of a black pencil skirt, a white button down shirt and sensible black heels. While this is an acceptable look, it is plain and boring. Change out the black pencil skirt for one in a rich jewel tone like emerald. Tuck the same white shirt into your skirt and wrap a black waist belt around yourself. Instead of the sensible black heels, wear a strappy heel in flesh tone to elongate your legs. Add a bold statement necklace and bright stud earrings and you have a look that is professional yet full of personality.

Next time you feel like wearing your basic outfit, add some pretty and fun accessories to dress it up. Make sure your personality shines through. Do not be afraid to try something new or add a funky pair of earrings to jazz up a tried and true look that you have worn before. These finishing touches can make or break your outfit.

Wardrobe Essential Accessories


Fall Color Accessories

Gone are the bright and sunny days of summer, and with them go the neon colors, the pastels and sharp whites of the season. The cool breeze of autumn brings with it richer hues, jewel tones, and thicker fabrics in woodsy and natural shades. Updating your fall wardrobe is much more than switching your summer dresses for wool sweaters and jeans, but also changing up your scarves, hats, purses, and jewelry into colors that go with the season. Here are a few outfit ideas that incorporate accessories in autumn colors.

For every day looks, it is a good idea to keep your outfit in neutral shades (browns, denim, beige, camel) that you can dress up with a brighter hued or jewel toned accessory. For example, pair some dark denim jeans with dark brown slouch boots and a beige sweater as a base. Add to your outfit an amethyst pashmina scarf and matching cashmere bucket hat. Carry a mustard handbag to add some dramatic contrast with the purple, or you can neutralize it with a deep brown leopard print tote. Throw on some bronze colored filigree hoops for some femininity and you are all set!

For a funkier option, pair some brown leather boots over black tights under a dark denim mini skirt. Tuck a black long sleeve v-neck shirt into your skirt, and wrap a maroon tube scarf around your shoulders like a cape or shrug. Wear a tweed newsboy cap to keep your head warm and carry a red orange clutch purse for some added spice. Or skip the hat and wear the scarf like a hood. If you want to go totally rogue, carry a crystal clutch purse. There is nothing wrong with being a little different!

For nighttime and special occasions, wear luxurious fabrics with heavier weight like velvet or brocade. Keep the palette simple so that you have more freedom with your accessories. Wear a velvet mini dress over black stockings and some glittering pumps. Add a dramatic statement necklace in gold or bronze, and carry a gold clutch purse. Earrings can be long and sweep your shoulders or they can be simple as a pair of emerald studs.

The air is getting chilly, so wardrobe essentials that keep you warm are necessary to survive the upcoming cold temperatures. However you choose to accessorize your fall wardrobe, be sure to stick with the season’s colors or you may stick out like a sore thumb.

How To Update Your Wardrobe For Fall

The warm winds of summer are making way for the cool breezes of fall. There is no need to buy a completely new closet full of clothes to prepare for the cold. Adding a few essentials will not only save you money, but transform an entire closet! Update your wardrobe for the changing seasons with these simple tips.

1. Knitted fabrics are crawling from the back of the closet to the forefront! The easiest way to transition through the awkward stage between summer and fall is to throw on a pashmina scarf over your sundress! As the air becomes crisper, a sweater dress in a deep jewel tone worn with boots is sexy, yet covered up and weather appropriate! You can wrap yourself in a knee length sweater coat to stay warm, yet fashionable.
2. Boots are considered a fall fashion staple. They come in all styles, sleek and slouchy, canvas or leather, stiletto or flat. No matter what your personality, you can find a boot to fit you and your signature look! Tuck your skinny jeans into your boots for a casual look or wear them with knitted tights and a skirt!
3. The fresh pastels of Spring and Summer are no longer. Fall is the time to enrobe yourself in the rich hues of the season. Pick pieces in a dark chocolate brown, sage green or deep khaki and pair them with beautiful jewel tones like amethyst, maroon, and navy blue.
4. Light and airy silk and cotton fabrics go into hibernation, making way for warmer textiles to come to light. Wool, tweed and corduroy are the favorites for Fall. Wool coats come in every color imaginable. Pair them with tweed slacks for a professional look, or corduroy pants for a more casual ensemble. Flowy scarves make way for heavier woolen wraps.
5. Warm up your hands with a pair gloves! Try leather driving gloves lined in wool, knitted fingerless gloves, or a classic pair of woolen mittens!
6. Put away your straw hat! Cooler temperatures call for something a little more heavy duty! Keep your head warm with a cute bucket hat, a knitted trapper, or a newsboy cap!
7. The number one rule for layering is to stay sleek, not bulky. Try a blazer over a cardigan, a pair of shorts over tights and into boots!

Updating your wardrobe for the changing seasons does not have to break the bank. As long as you keep these key pieces on hand, you will always be ready! For nice pieces of fall fashion accessories, visit Chicastic now and fill up your closet with some fall essentials.
