Springtime is one of the more popular times to get married, but what do you wear to a spring wedding? Try refreshing your look for the warmth of the season by adding some color and natural inspired patterns to your look.
Spring weddings, like any wedding, will indicate the desired dress code on the invitation or RSVP card. But this provided suggestion does not always help you decide on what to wear. Though whether the invite says whether it is casual, black tie, or anything in between, it’s fun to take advantage of the season and use colors that will reflect the weather and the latest fashions.
When it comes to black tie or elegant formal weddings, you may feel like you are not left with a lot of wiggle room, but it does allow you to be a little creative. Even though these sorts of events call for floor length gowns, you can still play around with color and texture. While formal events still call for simplistic elegance, you can still try to incorporate pastels and other spring colors such as orchid. Even if you want to choose a more conservative dress with more neutral or understated but classic color, you can still accessorize with colors of the season. Colored bangles, wrist cuffs or statement necklaces are great ways to include brighter colors without making it the focal point of your look.
More casual weddings offer you a lot more leeway to experiment or have fun. While it is still a wedding and you shouldn’t look too over the top and take attention away from the bride, a more casual setting can allow you to incorporate busier patterns and colors than a more formal wedding. Play around with spring prints like florals that can still be classy and dressy. You might also feel more comfortable using colors and playing with texture when invited to a more casual wedding. Whether you’re going super casual and wearing a cotton dress or going a little more upscale with a cocktail number, there is a lot more room to play around with.
If you’re still not sure about what to wear to a wedding, pay attention to the location listed on the invitation. It will help provide you with some clues as to what to wear, especially when it comes to fabric. A destination beach wedding may call for chiffon if you’re looking for elegant and perhaps an embellished cotton if the wedding is casual. A chic city locale may call for ensembles of a sleeker material. But if you want to take advantage of the season, try to incorporate some color and add some of that fresh spring feel to brighten your look.
Embrace the spring with new colored polishes and purses. Add that subtle accent to maximize the season’s fresh new looks.
It’s time to break out of the dreary clutches of winter and walk into spring with open arms- adorned with the appropriate seasonal polishes and purses, of course. Now that your hands are free from the clutches of their gloves and your arms are free of bulky layers to weigh them down, it’s time to show them both off again. While winter is not completely monochrome and it is perfect for shimmery metallics and jewel-tones, spring is about livening things up and adding some fresh new color.
The 2014 pantone color of the year, radiant orchid, is a great place to start. Adding this bright and lively shade to your nails can do wonders to an ensemble. It will instantly brighten up any look and will add a splash of color. It also works wonderfully as a clutch. An accessory like this is subtle but eye catching, and can be manipulated easily. Clutches may be small but they can easily be added in or out of an outfit depending on your mood, but always make for an easy addition. Even colors that are not quite orchid, but are close, such as a traditional rich purple, will work wonderfully. Whether you wear it on your nails, in your hand, or both, this color adds a bit of springtime freshness to any outfit.
Emerald greens are perhaps the most traditional and expected colors to emerge during this season. After all, the snow finally melts to reveal the soon-to-be-green grasses and the trees reclaim their leaves. This color takes center stage and is the focus of rejuvenation come springtime. Whether you go for deeper tones or more pastel ones, green is a safe and appropriate color for the season and goes wonderfully with other neutrals and even other pastels.
But not everything has to be bright and colorful to look fresh. Grey is a fabulous neutral for the season, it isn’t as dark and overwhelming as black and acts as a middle ground between that and brighter whites. Just like any other neutral, wearing grey really provides a great canvas for showcasing other colors. Especially when you plan on mixing and matching nails and a handbag. Grey nails are great because they match any outfit and can accent any handbag, but grey clutches and purses really allow freshly painted nails in reds, greens, purples or pastels to really shine.
Both of these handheld fashion options are great ways to step into spring. They may seem small and subtle but they can go a long way and still make a statement.
New years bring new trends. Incorporate this new color into your wardrobe repertoire and see how it inspires new looks.
Every year and every season sees to new trends and new styles. The runway introduces us to new ensembles, looks, and introduces us to new ways to wear things. Usually, a color palette emerges with each season, a new set of colors that will define the future fashion trends to come in the following months. The pantone color of 2014 has already been decided: Radiant Orchid. This shade is perfect for spring, which is now officially here, and can easily transition into summer and fall as well.
This color is bold yet soft and pastel at the same time. Purple has always demanded attention and has a certain lingering air of regalia from the times of Romans when they were worn by people of importance and later worn primarily by European monarchs. This color still demands the same admiration today, and this particular shade is both bold as well as demure. The softness of it is perfect for spring. Pastels are great once the weather gets warmer, imitating the emerging flowers in bloom as the earth slowly grows greener. Pastels work great as undertones as well as bold accent colors depending on what other colors they are worn with. They can be used to undertone patterns and compliment like colors, but they can also stand out when worn with paler colors or with neutrals. They add a splash of oomph while remaining soft and supple, and this shade of radiant orchid does just that. It is light while still bringing with it the power of purple. It can stand out more or less depending on what it is paired with, but will always make a statement.
You can try to gather outfit inspiration from this radiant orchid to make your 2014 outfits look equally radiant. One great way to incorporate a trend into your wardrobe is to gather a few pieces that can be mixed and matched. One safe way is to get t-shirts or camisoles in the color to use when layering, that way it can be used as either an accent or a main staple depending on how you wear it. Accessories also work well. Try to snag a light chiffon scarf or a new handbag in this shade to sport now that spring is here. You can also go for the statement route, which may mean finding a statement necklace or perhaps even a versatile blazer in radiant orchid in order to bring it into your other, already existing outfits while still allowing it to stand out and be noticed.
The best thing to do with anything new fashion-wise is to experiment and to mix and match. See what pieces work for you by trying them on in the store and seeing how they mesh with pieces you already own. If you ever feel unsure but are still eager to try something new, always start small and see how you feel. Who knows, you may be influenced to run back out to the store and grab more items in that color!

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.

Every year sees hot new styles, new hot patterns and new hot colors. It’s hard to keep up with the latest thing without breaking the bank, but there are easy ways to incorporate current trends into an already existing wardrobe. Radiant Orchid, or a deep violet, is the hottest color on the runway right now. Wear it casually, formally, or just as an accent. Like any color, it suits some more than others but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it work for you.
Before you begin to assimilate a new trend into your already existing style, you have to assess your overall style and your current wardrobe first. Sometimes we just need a refresher and sometimes we find that a new trend suits us perfectly. So first thing’s first, where do you stand? Are deep, rich colors your thing? Do you currently have any in your wardrobe? Or perhaps your wardrobe is monochromatic or mostly neutral? There are plenty of ways to try and incorporate a new trend to suit you. If you find yourself agreeing with the latter, this rich orchid could be the thing for you. It’s simultaneously subtle but bold. When paired with neutral colors, its true richness stands out without being too over-the-top yet is still classy and eye-catching. Even if you wear a lot of black or dark colors, orchid will fit right in by adding a hint of color to your already edgy look. If you’re going for a more outrageous look, pair this color with an animal print or another neutral toned print or pattern. If you already dress with a lot of color, you don’t have to stray away from this deep tone, in fact, if you tend to wear a lot of bold colors, this darker color could tone down and balance out your look if paired with complementary colors such as yellows or even greens.
Once you’ve concluded where your wardrobe stands color-wise, you can move onto items. If the color looks great with your skin tone, go ahead and rock it with a blouse and printed pant, or perhaps the other way around with an orchid skinny pant and monochromatic top and flats. If you’re not sure whether you want to commit to an item of clothing, there are always accessories. A deep violet handbag is edgy but elegant, it’s dark but has that hint of color that can add to any ensemble. And no one can have enough scarves. Try a solid scarf or try to find a pattern that incorporates it. An orchid statement necklace would look stunning against any neutral top, especially any little black dress.
The possibilities are endless, but when it comes to trying new trends, always start with small doses. Try out some accessories and perhaps move onto bigger pieces if you’re unsure, but don’t be afraid! Have fun and experiment, that’s what trends are all about. Chicastic has a lot of fashion accessories available in Radiant Orchid. Visit now!
