How To Dress Festive For The Outdoors

This time of year is always spectacular. Houses lit up with red and green lights, the towns and villages decorated like a winter wonderland and the Christmas spirit all around you. One way to celebrate this time is taking a walk around the block and looking at everyone’s decorations or even looking at your town’s beautiful Christmas tree.

Here’s Chicastic’s head-to-toe guide on how to dress festive while you’re walking around outdoors.

Head: Beanies are never going out of style. They are stylish and comfortable all while keeping you warm in the colder weather. Check out the different colors our slouchy beanies come in. You’ll find one to match every outfit you have.

Neck: Not only are scarves the perfect accessory for the winter season, they are incredibly warm too! We have many scarves in all different shapes and colors from infinity to fashion statements, we have them all!

Body: Jackets aren’t your only option to keep your body warm while braving the cold weather. Why not try a poncho? They are just as fashionable as a jacket but not as bulky. This makes walking around more comfortable. Plus, you’ll get rid of the constant struggle of taking your jacket on and off while going inside and outside.

Bottom: Leggings are always the perfect go to pant. They match everything, just like jeans, but are cozy and made of breathable material. This makes walking outside comfortable. We have so many different styles to choose from. You’ll want to buy them all!

Shoes: Make sure you wear shoes that you can wear all day long. You’ll be doing a lot of walking around and the last thing you need are blisters all over your feet. We recommend sneakers or moccasins. But don’t forget to pack your favorite pair of heels for your late night plans!

Accessories: Of course you can’t leave the house without a few statement pieces. You can choose necklaces, rings or why not a clutch? Instead of carrying a huge handbag just use a clutch to keep your money and keys in. Our snakeskin leather clutch fits all of your necessities in one compact place.

Mint Stone Statement Necklace

Statement pieces are everywhere now and can help transform outfits of any caliber. Use this mint stone statement necklace to add some refreshing color to any spring ensemble.

Mint has been a signature staple color for a couple of years now but it is still here to stay. This shade provides a refreshing addition to any ensemble, brightening up your look with minimal, classy effort. It works to lighten an outfit while also adding that hint or splash of color. It’s perfect for using as an accent, whether it be a single statement piece like a blazer or a pointed toe shoe, or even a statement necklace. Necklaces, jewelry and other accessories are great for when it comes to adding color to an ensemble to create balance or when adding depth and texture. These pieces can be used to stand out on their own, to help bring out specific elements of your outfit or can work as inspiration for the outfit itself.

This mint stone statement necklace can work in many ways. One of the simplest ways to wear it is with a basic outfit. If you’re wearing your favorite tee and jeans, this necklace can add some color and class, instantly jazzing up your overall look. Wearing it with light neutral colored basics works best, especially if you’re looking to make a simple outfit look more purposeful. Additionally, this accessory goes well with other classic basics like the ever popular little black dress. By adding similar jewelry, whether of the same color, simple gold, or even the entire matching jewelry set can bring the entire outfit together. This will help add a sufficient amount of color that is perfect for the spring and the coming summer. A dress with a simple, low neckline or one that is sleeveless works best. This way, the attention is drawn to the necklace, allowing it to work its magic.

Other colors work just as well. A warm toned ensemble using warm golds, browns, beiges and similar shades accent the gold in the necklace, allowing the mint stones to offset your look beautifully. This way, the mint stones stand out but the gold also ties in the rest of the outfit by mirroring those similar, warm shades. Alternatively, you can use the mint of the stone insets to bring out any mint or similar shades that are used in a pattern or print you happen to be wearing, whether it is a patterned top, a printed pant or embellished clutch or shoe.

Pieces like this can help maximize your wardrobe this spring and summer. Use it to accent a formal or professional outfit or let it help you add oomph to any of your basic ensembles.

Styling a Red Prom Dress

Timeless is always in, so red is always a safe bet for any major occasion like prom. Here are some ways to make sure you make the right statement and let the red speak for itself.

Red makes a perfectly bold and timeless statement all on its own. It is no wonder that any prom dress in any shade of the color is bound to be a knockout and turn some heads. Since the color on its own is already eye-catching, it can be difficult deciding how exactly to properly accessorize it. The key to achieving a perfectly balanced look is to choose the right pieces and the right amount of them.

Since this color is already so bold, it would be best to stick with classic metallics such as silver or gold, and other accessories in similar neutral tones like black, cream, white, beige, or even brown or navy blue. A simple silver or gold chain necklace and matching earrings is a timeless look that will go with any dress. If you have a more vintage looking piece or even one that is simple and you want an elegant evening look, then pearls will go wonderfully with any shade of red. They add a touch of class and character without overshadowing the color of your prom dress and add an air of old Hollywood glamour that never goes out of style. When it comes to pearls, it is still important to choose your accessories wisely. If you’re wearing a choker or even a tiered 20’s inspired string of pearls, then studded earrings will work best. If you’re opting to go for a pearl bracelet instead then larger, longer earrings will make up for the lack of necklace and balance out your look. Another option is to choose one solid statement piece. A statement necklace works best with a low-cut or sweetheart neckline, and especially if you are wearing a sleeveless dress. A necklace, especially a choker or one that rests on your collarbone, will highlight your bare neck and shoulders while balancing the neckline of your dress as well.

Additional accessories can be a bit troublesome too, but keeping it simple will work best. If you are going with a pearl theme, then a white satin clutch will match nicely. It will add to the look of the pearls, matching it in color and sheen, but will not detract with added embellishment or look too much. You can also choose to accessorize using items that are the exact color of your dress or are perhaps a shade or two darker. This way, you can add depth and dimension to your prom look with minimal effort. Remember, red is a powerful color and can speak for itself. Adding subtle accessories will truly allow this sort of piece to dazzle on your special day.
