What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

Winter can be a cold and cruel season. Pretty summer hues are slowly eaten away by autumn and though the first snowfall may be beautiful, it melts away to a brown, gloopy mess. All of a sudden, you remember there’s a wedding smack in the middle of winter that you already RSVP’d to! There’s no backing out of it now, but what on earth do you wear?

First thing’s first, don’t panic! Winter is an opportunity to explore a new look, so try to have fun with it.

Next, look up the average temperature of that day. You want to be prepared!

Try new, rich jewel tones that include plum, wine, emerald, or deep blue. Warmer fabrics like brocade, velour, velvet or even knit can help keep the shivers to a minimum. Wrap your shoulders in faux fur or a velvet wrap for the outdoors, or add a pop of whimsy with a warm patterned pashmina.

Winter Wedding

 

For extra warmth, layer on tights instead of hose and instead of scrappy sandals wear velvet shoes like these crystal encrusted peep toe heels! Perhaps carry the shoes in with you and wear boots on your way to the venue, just so you don’t muddy up your outfit.

Accessorizing for a winter wedding offers more of an opportunity for sparkle and shine, even for casual weddings. Glittering mesh clutch purses are perfect for casual or cocktail style weddings, whereas crystal encrusted clutch bags are a beautiful touch of glam for formal events.

The Chicastic Guide to CLUTCH PURSES

CHICCLUTCH

A clutch is, simply speaking, a small purse. It is usually built around a frame opening at the top, held closed by a kissing lock. The clutch has evolved from this simple design and now includes the envelope, fold over, minaudière (box), frame, and wristlet.

The clutch was designed to hold only the necessities, such as a cell phone, driver’s license, lipstick and car keys. There are an infinite number of designs and styles, and they range in price from $10 to the thousands. The clutch went out of fashion in the early 19th century, but came back to popularity during World War II. They’ve remained popular to this day, mostly as evening and formal bags but there are plenty of women who use them for daily use.

Here are a few of the most popular styles of clutches.

1. Envelope Clutch

Though it is designed with a more casual look, don’t let this little envelope fool you! It can be used for formal wear as well! Depending on the materials used, an envelope clutch can transition from work to an evening out!

2. Flap

Similar to the envelope clutch, the flap closure clutch is the most popular style for bridesmaid accessories.

3. Fold Over

The Fold Over clutch is almost exclusively a casual bag. It has a zipper top that folds down to half its size when closed.

4. Minaudière

Also known as a box clutch, this bag is the most popular for very formal events as they can be decorated with a myriad of objects such as knuckle duster handles, crystals, faux flowers, pearls, beads, leather…anything you can think of!

5. Frame

The frame usually has a hinge opening with a clasp or kissing lock, and the body is usually made of fabric in a pouch or rectangular shape. Sometimes the body is reinforced with a flexible yet sturdy lining.

6. Wristlet

All frame clutches can be wristlets, but not all wristlets can be frame clutches. It is basically a small bag or wallet with a small strap that fits around your wrist. This bag is a favorite for running errands or tossing in a bigger bag to use later.

Makeup Tips and Tricks

makeup

 

Here at Chicastic, we sell an excellent makeup brush set that comes with 24 pieces! We have it all in this kit, ranging from foundation to lip brushes and everything in between.

So you’re sitting in your satin robe with the kit you ordered for yourself and you need a little help with how to create that perfect look.

No worries! Chicastic is here to help!

♦  Eyebrows: As we all know your eyebrows must be “on fleek” but how do you know if you’re looking polished and not like you drew them on with a marker? Begin with picking out the perfect shade for your hair and skin tone. Your eyebrows should be a little darker than your hair color while complimenting your skin tone. Next, you need to decide how to fill them in…pencil or a pomade? A pencil adds shape and precision while a pomade will define with color. The final step in getting the perfect eyebrows is using your eyebrow comb found in your Chicastic makeup set to comb your hair into place. This will also set the color giving the final definition of shape.

Contour Brush: The newest beauty trend is contouring. Contouring is adding definition and shape by changing the shade of face makeup. By contouring you can completely change how your face appears! Using a bronzer and the Chicastic Contour Brush, apply the makeup just under your cheekbone in a diagonal towards your ear. Then apply bronzer to the outer edge of your nose and just at your jawline. Finally, using the powder brush, blend in the bronzer. Tah-dah! You have successfully contoured your face!

Eyeliner: Winged eyeliner is a classic look and perfect for any occasion! Take the eyeliner brush and dip it into a gel eyeliner. Starting from the outside corner of your eye, create an angle as high as you want the wing to be. Then from the top of the wing, begin a downward angle towards the inner corner of your eye. Last step, fill in the lines. You can make this as simple or drastic as you wish.

Lip Brush: Nothing is better than a good shape of lipstick to compliment a perfect look. Dip the lip brush in any shade lipstick (we are loving the classic red lip) and start by lining the top and bottom lip. Don’t over-line too much or else you’ll look like a clown! Follow the natural arch of your lips and then fill in. Don’t forget to blot the extra makeup with a tissue, you don’t want it all over your teeth. Finish by setting your lipstick with a translucent powder and you’re ready to go!
