Dress Up A T-Shirt

We all have tees but sometimes we need to dress them up last minute, or simply don’t know how else to wear it with other than jeans. Here are some simple accessory ideas that make any tee look more put-together. Let’s face it, tees are comfortable and they’re also convenient. They’re the ultimate go-to outfit option when running out the door and there is nothing wrong with having a closet full of them, right? And while we may feel like wearing a tee shirt all the time, we may not always want to rock that same old basic tee look. Fortunately, t-shirts are some of the most versatile pieces and can be transformed easily depending on how you wear it and accessorize it.

There are some easy outfit fixes for dressing up a tee. When it comes to mixing and matching clothing, there are several options. If you’re going for a flirty look, wearing a tee with a floral skirt can add some texture and complexity while still retaining the basic t-shirt’s inherent comfort. You’ll be totally date ready but still be totally comfortable. Wearing a tee with a printed or colored pant is also a great option. When wearing a bold pant, it’s always best to wear them with a solid top so a basic tee in a matching color (or simple black or white) will do perfectly. The focus of the outfit will be your legs, and a pattern or bold color will instantly make the tee appear polished, the entire ensemble put-together and balanced. And if you’re looking to wear a tee in autumn, winter or early spring, a cardigan is a great way to dress it up and keep you warm.

Accessories have the ability to redefine most clothing pieces and basic t-shirts are some of the best canvases. Depending on what you choose to wear with it, this staple, everyday piece can see countless reincarnations and never once be the same. All of your accessory options are simple and easy. A statement necklace instantly adds glam and color, especially when it features a bold color or pattern. Similarly, you can choose a colored or patterned chiffon scarf to wear around your head, neck or shoulders, each with their own drastically different look. Vests also work well, which works a bit like a cardigan but acts more like an accessory. Depending on the fabric and style of the vest, you can drastically dress up any plain outfit, especially if it features lace or satin-like fabric.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match! A tube scarf and a floral skirt can create a fun and flirty outfit, while a scarf and a printed pant will have you looking like you just walked off the runway. T-shirts are extremely adaptable, but sometimes we forget they can be worn with anything other than jeans! Play around and experiment with what you own and find just how many combinations you can muster. Chicastic has some great tube scarves and jewelry that can really help make a tee look dressy.

Matching Your Fashion Accessories

Fashion Accessories have a lot of power, and more than you may think. They can make or break an outfit. They can define your overall style. They can even dress up or dress down an outfit, transform pieces from fun and flirty to prim and professional. Like any other item, they need to be chosen accordingly. Mixing and matching jewelry and handbags can be just as vital when you’re choosing which accessories to wear with items of clothing.

If you’re going for a subtle look, synchronizing all of your pieces may be the way to go. You don’t want to look too matchy-matchy, but wearing accessories with a common theme is always safe. Choose a simple silver or gold and go from there. Wear a chunky gold bracelet with a gold chain strap purse. Match silver earrings with a ring and shoes or a belt with silver accents. Even if you don’t go with simple silver or gold, using subtle accessories set in analogous colors in regards to your outfit (in other words, your outfit consists of colors all in the same family and lie next to one another on the color wheel).

Or if you’re feeling brave, accent your outfit with accessories set in complimentary colors, ones found on the opposite side of the color wheel. If you want to go for a bolder look, try choosing brighter, eye catching colors, especially if your outfit mainly consists of neutrals. A leopard print clutch or shoe would look stunning against an all-black outfit, just as wearing a bright mint statement necklace or hot pink scarf. But the key to mixing bold accessories is not to use too many at once. Choose one wow item, don’t try to mix several bright items together if they don’t match or compliment each other. A little goes a long way.

It is incredibly useful to know how to manage mixing patterns and prints, and some items can help you tie a busy outfit together. A well-placed belt in an offset color could help break up a patterned blouse and a patterned pant, or an snakeskin handbag could look chic against more subtle, neutral patterned clothing or outerwear. Accessories can bring a lot of balance to an outfit, creating different sections to direct the eye, or draw the eye to specific places over others. Depending on how you accessorize, you can create a countless array of outfits that always keep you looking your best. Chicastic has a lot of great accessories which you can get to match with all your outfits, they are so affordable. 

Fashion Accessories For Women

Scarves And Hats

We usually associate hats and scarves as necessities of winter and we often forget that the cold weather is really just a great excuse to show off more accessories and styles. Since we’re limited to wearing a coat in the cold weather, hiding out outfits, hats and scarves can really make an outwear ensemble a true, thought-out outfit.

Aside from bundling up, layering is totally in, and scarves are key. They can be worn in an infinite number of ways and even worn as additional layered clothing, such as in a shawl, wrap-around or cowl. Even if you don’t tie your scarf in a creative way, a basic infinity scarf or oblong scarf looks great when worn tucked inside a closed coat and are always in style. A bold bundle of chiffon, silk or even cotton can brighten your winter outerwear and turn it into an outfit instead of just a shield against the cold. Prints and patterns can make any simple coat pop, and even if you’re wearing a bold winter jacket, a scarf will fit perfectly in the nook around to your neck and add some winter glam.

Hats also possess a wealth of possibility. The styles are endless! Most of us worry about hat hair and have other similar concerns when it comes to hats, but many hats, such as beanies and cloches, are totally acceptable to wear indoors as well, making these accessories part of a daily hairstyle instead of just an outdoor tool to stay warm. While we do wear hats to protect our heads, faces and especially our ears against the bitter air of the season, these styles are becoming more and more popular and can be worn with most outfits and are not just limited for use outdoors.

If you want to maximize your winter wardrobe, invest in several scarves (in a few different colors, prints and fabrics that suit your general style) and several hat styles that suit you and define different kinds of outfits in order to create as many combinations as possible. This also ensures that you have an accessory for any occasion, whether it is casual, professional or formal. When you hear the news telling you that a blizzard is headed your way or that temperatures are drastically dropping, know that you have chic options to stay warm that can maximize your indoor wardrobe as well as your outdoor ensembles. Chicastic has a great variety of scarves and hats that can make your winters fashion friendly.

Scarves And Hats

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.

Infinity Tube Scarves

The winter weather usually has some say in our outfit choices, but staying warm doesn’t always mean making a fashion sacrifice. Infinity tube scarves are a cute addition to any outfit and are comfy and cozy to boot. Like scarves, you may think that there are a limited number of ways to wear these accessories, but there are countless fashions and combinations.

The length of your infinity tube scarf can determine the realm of its fashion possibilities, but any length is great. Smaller scarves are cozier and more easily allow you to wear it closer to your neck like a cowl scarf. These are great for bundling up with a pea coat. They fit perfectly into the open collar portion of most coats to keep your neck toasty while still looking good. While most of these scarves are shown wrapped around the neck at least once (creating two loops around the neck) they can be worn more simply without looping as well. This can give your outfit a more loose, casual feel, to wear once you’re out of the cold and around the house.

Longer infinity scarves have more versatility. They can be worn in the same styles as shorter ones, but can become more ingrained in any outfit. Consider looping the scarf twice (or more, depending on the length) around your neck and pull one layer over your head, resting over you hair, and there you have a nifty hood or a head-wrap (which is especially useful for unexpected inclement weather), or use it as a cape by looping it twice and draping a different loop over each shoulder. One of these bad boys can even become a shawl if you find yourself colder than expected upon leaving the house, just lay the scarf over the back of your neck, not looping it, and insert each arm through the openings on either side. In that same vein, an infinity scarf can even be worn like a loose, gathered vest if worn similar to the shawl, only gathering the fabric at your nape and lower back instead of wearing it draped over your shoulders. That’s only a taste of the limitless combinations you can discover and sport with these chic and comfortable scarves.

These nifty accessories are incredibly versatile and can adapt to any situation, whether fashion related, weather related, or both. Don’t let the chill get you down or keep you from looking great, and an infinity scarf will keep you looking fashionable while still keeping you warm!
