Scarves are an indispensable accessory no matter what your style. Make sure you choose yours wisely!
Scarves are an indispensable part of anyone’s wardrobe. They are perfect for every season, they come in a variety of colors, prints, patterns, materials and finishes, and can be worn in so many ways that it could take you months to wear a different style every day. Spring is a great season for scarves. The transitional weather calls for versatile and practical clothing and accessories, and scarves do just that. They can provide warmth from cool breezes just as well as add some depth to an outfit. It’s useful for anyone to have at least a handful of these fashion accessories and to vary their pieces. Having some solids and some stripes can go a long way.
When it comes to solid colors, it’s always nice to have a variety. Try to have at least one neutral color that you can wear with absolutely everything. This will come in handy when you’re on the run, don’t have time to think about your outfit in too much detail, or even if a friend needs to borrow an accessory. You can choose the ever popular black, or any other neutral if you wear it often enough. You’ll also want to add some color in there as well. You can choose from pale to bold or jewel-toned to pastel, it’s all up to you. Choose one of each or go with one color palette and get a scarf in every color of that family. It’s up to you. Again, you might want to opt for colors that you wear often or alternatively ones that contrast with your clothing if you want to make more of a statement.
Stripes are basically the neutral of patterns. They are simple and sleek and can be matched with just about anything, except for maybe more stripes. These can be worn with other patterns as well, such as paisley, floral, geometric, you name it. Also, scarves with stripes can add some depth and dimension to an outfit while still essentially being a neutral. While you can have stripes in different colors, the most popular colors featured are often black and white, or navy and white, black and cream, or grey and white etc. These neutral accessories can do a lot for an outfit without using too much color that might clash with whatever you’re wearing.
Feel free to mix and match, experiment, and have fun. Scarves are one of the most versatile and useful accessories out there, so take as much advantage of them as you can!
White is often underestimated as a color, but as a neutral it has a lot of power as well. Here are some ways to make white work to your best advantage. White and black are the ultimate neutral colors. Black … Continue reading
A clutch handbag makes a great noncommittal accessory. It can be easily added to any ensemble on the go and just as easily removed if you want to go for a different look, but having one, if not a few, handy in your wardrobe will definitely come in handy. Having one handbag alone will not suffice. Different occasions call for different bags and a clutch definitely serves its purpose. If you’re the type of person that prefers their accessories be as versatile as possible, then this white glossy faux leather clutch is perfect for you.
White is a great color to break out come the spring time. Though this color might remind you of the snow that spring has hopefully left behind for good, it can easily brighten up an outfit and is also a great color to use when transitioning between spring and summer. White accessories are very resort chic and are wearable with most, if not all, outfits. White is a neutral and goes with everything, which is of course an added bonus. It can match virtually any outfit and suit any occasion, whether it is casual, professional or formal. It can even suit a night out on the town. Leather always gives off an air of sleek sophistication, and even this faux leather handbag does the job. Its glossy finish makes it appear even sleeker, and is also easier to take care of should it see to any spills or stains.
When it comes to using white, there is a wide and open playing field. Given that it is a neutral, it can be used to accent an outfit in several ways. If you’re wearing primarily dark or deep, rich colors, then it can suitably break up your look and add balance without taking away from the colors in your outfit. It can also be used with monochromatic looks or even all white for a classy yet daring look. Given this clutch’s versatility, it makes the perfect go-to bag. If you’re heading to a casual coffee date or if you need a classic clutch to go with a cocktail dress for a last minute formal event, this bag can work on any occasion and to full effect. It’s small size makes it the perfect addition to any look, adding whatever element you need. If you want to break up a monotonous outfit, it can do so with minimal effort. Same goes if you’re simply looking for an accessory that will match just about anything. An item with maximum usage definitely goes a long way and can help create countless outfits and looks.
It’s just about time for sunshine and being outdoors. And with all that fun in the sun comes the need for skin protecting accessories like sunglasses and sunblock. A great spring and summer accessory to have is a hat. And a great hat to have is this stylish off white two toned fisherman style cap!
Hats are great because they protect your scalp from sunburns, the visor helps shield your eyes, and they make for really easy hair days.
This particular hat is such a cute accessory to add to your outfit. The neutral colors of the off white canvas and the brown trim allow it to work well with your spring colored clothing. If you like the clean lines but would prefer a different neutral combo it also comes in brown canvas with dark brown trim and black canvas with brown trim.
Try wearing it with jean shorts and a loose top or a knee length flowy skirt with a tank top.
Spring is finally here but that does not mean that the cold is completely gone. Even though the warmer weather is more than welcome, it can still be a bit temperamental and is known to change its mind about the temperature throughout any given day. Spring fashion is all about being prepared and tube scarves are more than ready to take up the challenge. Not only do they serve a practical purpose by keeping us warm, but they also look fabulous and still appear chic.
Staying warm can be fashionable and tube scarves are perfect examples of that. These accessories are incredibly versatile, cute, and totally useful. They can be worn in a variety of ways, with various outfits, to different occasions, and keep us toasty and warm to boot. This is especially useful when planning a spring outfit. Planning an ensemble during the springtime months can be confusing and quite a hassle. The morning and evening may be cold, with warmer, breezy afternoons that are mixes of hot and cool. You might not want to wear a heavy coat but you might not want to bare it all either. This is where the tube scarves come in. They are perfect for layering, and are simultaneously lightweight and warming against the cooling spring winds. Choosing one to go along with an outfit cannot go wrong and can only come in handy.
These handy accessories can be worn with practically any outfit and it is always good to have a few of them on hand. Be sure to cover your bases and appeal to your own style. Have some neutrals, some prints or even some bright colors or differing materials. That way, you are sure to have a scarf to match everything, from your outfit to your mood, and especially the weather. Wear one with an over-sized sweater, a tee shirt and jeans, a dress, along with a cardigan, a blazer, practically anything. These lightweight accessories are also easy to remove and stick in a handbag if they get in the way or become too warm. In any case, it is always handy to have one, and it wouldn’t hurt to keep one in your handbag in case the occasion or the weather calls for one. They are always adorable and are just as comfortable. They are incredibly easy to mix and match with and can even be used to inspire entire outfits.

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.

Neutrals are often known for being conservative, colors that are used to tone down others or as blank canvases on which to layer colors and patterns. But neutrals are more powerful than that. We usually think that they are only used as a base on which to display our fashion accessories and dress up with bold colors, but they are just as powerful as accessories, too. Beige is often an overlooked color, but it can have a lot more power if you know how you use it correctly. Though often associated with conservative looks, it can actually be used to effect when used as an accessory.
We often think of accessories as a means to dress up an outfit, but these handy accents can also be used to add balance and symmetry, resulting in an overall put-together and polished look. Beige accessories do just that. If you’re wearing an outfit that features bright colors or patterns, a beige clutch purse can be just the thing. While you want to stay away from flashy jewelry when wearing bold or daring colors and prints, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t accessorize at all. Use a beige waist belt or sash to add symmetry to a patterned dress. The addition of a neutral accessory breaks up the outfit, creating shape and dimension without making your outfit more complex or too busy.
In fact, the addition of a neutral accessory, such as a sash or even a scarf, can tone down an outfit without actually taking away from the ensemble itself. Bold tones, shades and patterns can often stand on their own, and the addition of accessories can make an outfit too complicated and over the top. Just as accessories are worn to dress up or add oomph to simpler or more basic outfits, neutral accessories can add necessary balance to make more daring styles look put-together and balanced. Aside from pieces like scarves or belts, beige handbags are a great neutral accessory. A beige bag goes with everything and can still be jazzed up with a chain strap. Jewelry is also another simple option. A beige bangle, earrings or statement necklace has a similar effect in gold, to which it is similar in shade and tone, but is not nearly as flashy or shiny. A beige piece of jewelry can still give you the effect of wearing an accessory while remaining subtle.
Beige, and other neutrals, have the power to add a professional looking balance to outfits. It all depends on balance and the look you are aiming to achieve. Visit Chicastic now to find your favorite beige accessory.
