“There’s No Crying in Baseball!”

Baseball season technically began a few weeks ago, but for most people, it doesn’t officially begin until Summer.  It’s one thing to watch from home but going to a game is a whole different experience. Are you going to your first game this summer and don’t know what to wear? Fear not, we’ve got your guide to a fashionable day of America’s pastime.

One of the biggest considerations when picking an outfit is the weather, since most likely you’ll be outside and many stadium seats are uncovered. For a hot day, a pair of jean shorts with one of our cute tops with tanks would be perfect. If you’re going for a more formal look, our dresses are ideal. Plus, they come in several color choices so you can match it to the team of your choice!

If it’s going to be on the chillier side but not enough to warrant a sweater, make sure you bring a scarf which can be worn in a multitude of ways to keep you stylish yet comfortable. If it is cool enough for a sweater, consider one of our cute cardigans.

Not wearing a cap to a baseball game is like having ice cream without sprinkles. If you don’t have or want the cap of a specific team we recommend one of our hats. Keep the sun out of your eyes while still looking fresh.

Chicastic is takin’ you out to the ball game!

Silk Scarves

Silk is an elegant material and makes for a great professional or simply polished accessory. Here are some ways this little accessory can be made useful.

There are few fashion accessories that are just as cute as they are practical and scarves are more than likely the most useful of any accessory you can possibly own. They look cute and chic, they can add dimension and depth to an outfit, they can protect your head, neck and shoulders from the chill or breeze, and can make a makeshift headscarf or wrap if you need them to. They look great with summer outfits or tucked under coats and are perfect for practically any season or any type of weather. But is there a scarf that helps you look elegant, too?

For a much classier and professional look, the silk scarf is your best accessory. Its silky sheen makes any look appear much more polished and put together, which is great for the workplace, a big interview, or other more formal events. It can sometimes be a difficult task to properly accessorize for a more professional atmosphere but silk scarves provide a means to have fun and still look appropriate for the atmosphere.

The material is more delicate but also leaves room for you to play around with color and print, depending on what you happen to be wearing, of course. You can opt for the ever classic black or go for more neutral colors if you are unsure of what would go best. These options are always great backups regardless. But since the material is already work appropriate, feel free to mix and match with bold spring and summer colors like radiant orchid or pale yellow that will add a splash of color to your office ensemble. Prints and patterns look great too, especially when on silk. Play around with color and either wear a printed scarf with a neutral outfit or use some of the colors in the pattern to use in other accessories like shoes, jewelry or outfit accents as inspiration.

And don’t forget, these handy fashion accessories can be tied in countless ways to yield countless different looks. Tie it tightly around your neck, wear it loose, use it as a kerchief, drape it over your shoulders or wear it like a shawl. Whatever works best with your outfit and the conditions you are in. Having even one silk scarf can create an endless amount of office ensembles to help you truly maximize your wardrobe and mix things up every now and again.

Silk Scarves

Silk Scarf Wrap

Scarves are an invaluable fashion accessory all year round. Here are some ways to wear a silk scarf this spring.

There is no fashion accessory quite as versatile as the scarf. It is simultaneously practical and fashionable and can be manipulated to create and match countless looks, outfits and ensembles on any number of occasions. Each of the seasons tends to call on different materials when it comes to fashion in general but these accessories are no exception. While there are some materials, like cotton and silk, that are appropriate year round, there is something a little more special about silk. Silk can be worn no matter what the season is, but always calls for a classier look than any of the other fabrics. Adding silk instantly makes any look more sleek and a silk scarf wrap is one great way to add it to your wardrobe.

The great thing about these fashion accessories is that there is no one right way to wear them. Let your rendition of a scarf inspire the rest of your ensemble or the other way around. These simple but rich colors are perfect for spring, adding a bit of extra oomph to any rainy day. You can choose to match your outfit with the overall color of the scarf or use contrasting colors when it comes to both. Use it to brighten up an otherwise dark outfit, add a splash of color to a spring trench coat if the weather calls for it, or use it to add some fun to an office outfit. Even adding it to a more casual outfit will dress it up a little. Depending on the color of the scarf and those used in your overall outfit this accessory can add a fun touch while the silk adds some elegant texture to whatever you are wearing.

When it comes to tying or wearing this accessory, you have several options available to you. Wearing it close and tight about the neck can give you a bit of an Old Hollywood look, just as if you were to wear it over a hairdo like a kerchief. As the name suggests, you can absolutely wear this piece as a wrap around, whether it is simply draped over your shoulders or used more widely over your torso as makeshift cardigan or kimono. There are even several ways to tie this piece as a wrap, which may include simply folding it into a triangle, draping over your shoulders and tying in the front, you can wear it as a side wrap or one-shouldered wrap, or even loop and tie the ends so it makes an infinity scarf and looping it under your arms and over your neck as a makeshift cardigan which can be bunched at the shoulders for texture or draped loosely over your shoulders to look more like a kimono.
