Purple Satin and Floral Lace Bustier

Bustiers don’t automatically mean bedroom. Depending on the style, they can be a great addition to your daily wardrobe.

This purple satin and floral lace bustier is a winning mix of sexy and sweet.  It has many details that make it a really special piece.  It has the classic corset look with its strong boning, front hooks, and lacing up the back. Yet it also has a charming touch with the purple floral lace overlay sections and simple bow tied around the waist.

It’s a versatile piece that can go from day to evening.  For a demure toned down look, it can be worn with a cardigan over an A-line skirt. For evening, it can be worn over a dark pair of jeans with sexy heels.

And at the end of the day, it’s still a bustier and can make a night at home special as well.

Spring Essentials

Revamp your winter wardrobe with some spring essentials. With these pieces, you’ll be ready to handle whatever weather the spring brings.

Spring is finally here! While it may not yet feel like it has fully arrived, much of the spring season will be defined by temperamental weather that can’t seem to make up its mind. Some days will feel like hints of summer and others may feel like a backtrack through winter, so be sure to stock up on some spring essentials to make sure you are ready for absolutely anything!

Scarves are absolutely essential to spring. They come in handy in a pinch, are lightweight, add texture to outfits, and they can be worn in more ways than you can wear every day in a week (or even a month if you’re feeling ambitious). These handy accessories come in so many colors, prints, fabrics and styles that it is always worth it to have at least a few in varying looks. That way, you’ll always have a scarf for any occasion. Need a scarf for work? A silk scarf looks chic and still does the job. Need one for a casual day out? A pastel chiffon scarf can be worn with practically any outfit. What about one that adds that oomph to a basic outfit? How about one with a floral, paisley or animal print? These accessories are so versatile and practical, it’s hard to go through any season without one.

Pastels. What sorts of pastels? Any kind! Spring is also associated with spring cleaning, so if you have any old accessories or pieces of clothing you no longer wear or have fallen out of style that need replacing, then replace them with a new pastel piece. Pinks, yellows, soft greens and blues, purples are all the rage this season. The pantone color of the year is radiant orchid, so perhaps replace your old purse with a new patent leather one sporting this shade. Bold statement necklaces with opaque, pastel colored insets are also popular. If you’re not into jewelry, then clutch purses and scarves (of course) are another suitable option.

Cardigans are also an invaluable essential for the season. Since the weather is rather unpredictable, a cardigan is perfect for layering so that you’re reading for anything. Layering is great for days that may start off and end up chilly but are warm during the day. These handy pieces can be taken on or off easily or worn with heavier or lighter clothing to suit the temperature. With all of these in mind, you’ll be ready to shed your winter wardrobe and step into spring.

Spring Handbags

With Spring comes a wealth of opportunity. Take advantage of the season by updating your wardrobe and your accessories.

Spring months bring a brightness not just to the weather outside but to our wardrobes as well. The dreary nature of winter is on its way out so the brighter, more colorful world can emerge again. The same goes for fashion. Often winter fashion and accessories consist of metallics, neutrals, jewel-tones and heavy materials. While all of this is appropriate for the weather it’s worn in, it does not match the demeanor that is associated with the spring. Try and jump into spring with some seasonally appropriate handbags.

Color is a major thing you can play with when it comes to bags. While neutrals are perfectly appropriate all year round, pastels and bold, bright colors come out to play once the weather gets warmer. Blacks and grays are still appropriate, but lighter neutrals tend to take the accessory stage come spring and summer. Light beiges, creams and stark whites take over and make way for brighter wardrobe options. If you want to add some color, than by all means choose a bag in a pastel, either blue, green, pink, yellow, whatever suits your liking. Pastels are still understated but have just as much capacity to add color and flare to an ensemble. The pantone color of 2014 is radiant orchid, a light yet bold purple with violet undertones. This makes for a great handbag, and is equally a great way to incorporate a trendy new color to your wardrobe.

Spring also brings with it a new array of bag styles and materials to play around with and mix and match. Wicker or basket weave becomes much more popular as the weather gets warmer, evoking that popular tropical or beach feel. Lighter toned canvas bags, canvas backpacks or cross bodies are also more commonplace, especially those that boast a perfectly springy floral print. Larger bags also become more appropriate once the weather doesn’t bog us down with any number of coats and scarves. Large, over-sized totes are more suited to the spring time and warmer months when we are not burdened with extra layers, and can even carry a light sweater or a scarf if the necessity arises, allowing you to bring any number of other necessities along with you on a day about town.

Make use of these lighter, brighter colors and patterns, as well as more lightweight materials. Have fun and use these spring bag ideas to brighten up your wardrobe.

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!
