New Year’s Fashion Resolution

Every year we make a New Year’s Resolution. Eat healthier, go to the gym more and see more of our family. But these always seem so hard to keep. This year Chicastic plans on making a resolution that we know we can keep: dressing more fashionable!

This year we will dress comfortable AND stylish.

No need to dress in your old sweats. This year we plan on looking good and feeling good. So we plan on throwing out those sweatpants and buying more leggings.

Leggings are perfect. They are so comfy to be in all day long and they come in cute styles and colors. You can wear floral, abstract, striped or even plain leggings. The good thing about them is they’re perfect to bring from a day to a night outfit.


Check out all we have to offer!

We will not crumble our money in our pockets. We will put it in a chic wallet.

It is so embarrassing pulling out wrinkled money and handing it to the cashier. Instead we will put our money neatly away in a cute wallet. What better feeling than being organized and knowing exactly where to find all of your bills. Skip the solid black or brown wallet. We are going to buy bright, fun and flirty wallets to compliment our attitudes.


This year we will not forget about our feet!

There is no need to not have your shoes look just as good as your hair, makeup and outfit. Our resolution is to have our shoes be a statement piece too. Our heels will be bigger and our rhinestones will be shinier! It’s time for us to look glamorous from head to toe!


Find the perfect shoe for your New Year’s Resolution!


So now that we made our New Year’s Resolution, we hope you join us in making 2016 as fashionable and fun as we are!

Pastels for Spring

What says “spring” more than pastels? Here are some tips to keep in mind when adding these colors to your ensemble.

Spring is the perfect time to brighten up your wardrobe. Now that the dreary weather of winter is gone, you can break out of those dark colors and step into the light. Autumn and winter are best for rich jewel tones and deep shades, but spring beckons the sun to come back out and the weather starts to tempt us to come outside just as everything is blooming. Incorporating pastels into your wardrobe will really reflect the season, and brighter ones have actually been proven to improve your mood. Match your wardrobe with the feeling of spring by working these light shades to your look.

Pastels are a bit like statement colors, they should be used sparingly and with purpose. First, decide whether you want to wear it as an accent piece or as more of a focal point of your outfit. If you’re using it minimally, a statement clutch purse is a great way to incorporate it into your seasonal wardrobe. This way you can add it to any outfit on the go and it can act as the perfect spring accent. If you’re looking to wear it as a main focal point, then be careful of pairing it with other colors. Matching colors or ones that belong to the same family can work, but be sure to use neutrals to break up your look and create balance. Dark and light neutrals both work with pastels, but be wary of using too many other light colors together. Using too many like colors can create a washed out look, so darker or medium toned neutrals will help break up your look and let your pastels stand out as much as possible.

Don’t underestimate pastel jewelry either. Accessories like statement necklaces and enamel laquered jewelry can lighten your look no matter what you’re wearing. With smaller accent pieces, you can mix and match colors more easily since the effect is much more subtle. Add it to light or dark outfits, casual or dressy. Either way, you will look fresh and more than ready to greet the spring weather. Do be careful mixing too many pastels together, especially between jewelry, accessories and clothing items. Mixing pastels with neutrals and jewel or earth tones will help balance out your look and make your pastels stand out even more depending on your desired look. Balance is key and will help your desired statement pieces stand out all the more.

Fashion Can Be Comfortable

Looking in style sometimes means sacrificing comfort, but not always! Know there are always chic options to staying comfy and cozy.

Some of us may think that looking fashionable comes with a lot of sacrifices. While that is sometimes the case, it is not always everyone’s style. Not only that, but you can still look great without having to forego comfort. No matter what your personal preferences, being comfortable is a pretty nice thing for all of us, and while it is totally okay to go all out when it comes to looking great, it isn’t the be all end all for fashion greatness.

There are so many trending looks and styles to choose from, it’s dizzying. Some of us may adhere to a specific look and stick to it, while others do a lot of mixing and matching. No matter what, there are always comfy options out there. When people usually think of making sacrifices in lieu of looking great, they usually think of shoes. Heels and other strappy shoes can really take a toll on your feet. They are usually the go-to shoe when one thinks of dressing up for an event or going to work, but it isn’t your only option out there! Flats and boots are hot ways to look trendy without wearing a heel. These accessories can be dressy just as much as they can be casual and make a good alternative for those who don’t wish to wear heels, wedges, or any other sort of elevated shoe.

Tight, form-fitting clothing can also be a source of discomfort for some as well. Luckily there are loose styles like bohemian that are in fashion, as well as baggy shirts, sweaters, and jeans (often labeled as “the boyfriend jean” or “the boyfriend button down” etc. but are not always so). These looks allow you to wear looser clothing and apply the use of layering comfy pieces to achieve an altogether unique look. There are even some tight-fitting pieces of clothing that are more comfortable than others and can be used as alternatives for more rigid clothing. This would include things such as leggings, or even jeggings. These items look great with oversized sweaters or layered with tees, scarves and cardigans.

There are always fashionable options when it comes to being comfortable. If you ever feel the need to dress up a comfy look, you can always add a few accessories, a statement piece (whether it be jewelry, a necklace, or even a bold shoe or jacket). Feel free to mix and match, but above all make sure you always feel (as well as look!) your best.

Pantone Color of the Year

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!

Spring Handbags

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.

Runway Inspired Clutches

Magazines and ads are great places to gather outfit inspiration, but the runway will always be the best primary source. Here are some of this season’s hottest trends, choose to emulate them or mix and match to see which suits your style best.

The runway is the go-to source for the latest fashion trends. They invoke and inspire the looks we see on the streets as well as the looks we hope to emulate ourselves and are a great starting point to look to before a big day of shopping. Clutches are the perfect sleek statement bag and, of course, looking to the runway is the perfect place to see which styles are in and which kinds we can try to find for ourselves.

Clutches are a bit like statement necklaces right now. They essentially keep to one framework style but can come in such a wide variety of shapes, colors, designs and fabrics that no two are really the same and they have the ultimate ability to adapt to your own personal style. Geometric patterns, both modern and naturally found such as in stones and gems are huge when it comes to clutch purses this season, and use this trend to your absolute advantage.

Luckily for anyone, these patterned bags can add a wealth of color while still being interesting when they are done up in neutral colors. A black and white striped basket weave card case clutch is one such example. It uses the natural pattern created by the basket weave to form a daring yet versatile black and white pattern. The zigzag of the weaving adds a bit of a chic chevron look to its stripes, making them appropriate for more casual as well as formal or professional environments.

Another such purse is a metallic shell crystal clutch. This bag adds the dynamism of color found in nature through its use of shells in the design. The blues and purples shimmer in a mother of pearl way that is both bohemian inspired as well as modern and chic in the use of the square shape and pattern. This can be used as a standalone piece or can be used to inspire an outfit, whether you use the color to influence your choice of clothing or as a beacon of inspiration for complementary accessories. Clutches and handbags are just as powerful of an accessory as jewelry and can be used to offset them or in conjunction with them.

The runway is always a great source of inspiration. Whether you get designer brand items or you simply use your fashion findings to help you seek out bargain look-a-likes, the runway is always ahead of the curve and can help you look like you are too.

Purple Rhinestone Clutch

Statement pieces can help define your look and inspire outfits. Incorporate this purple rhinestone clutch into your formal spring look and stand out from the crowd.

Bold colors can be daring just as much as they can be classy. While neon colors are often considered such, there are other bright colors that may not be in the same category as neon. Any bright or startling color will do, and a brilliant purple orchid can be the ticket. Purple orchid has been a considerably hot color these past few seasons and makes the perfect accent color for this spring’s accessories. Now that spring is here, brighter colors are entering the fashion repertoire and this shade fits in there perfectly, especially since flowers are in its namesake.

But when it comes to an accent piece, you don’t just want to think about color. Texture and design should also come to mind, and the abstract rhinestone decoration seen here on this satin hard box evening clutch exhibits all of these wonderful characteristics. Its intricate rhinestone design sets it apart from plainer clutches but is still subtle. Its geometric pattern makes it modern while its shiny satin finish makes it appropriate for more traditional formal wear as well.

A piece like this works great with timeless looks, such as a black dress. The purple is still a deep, dark color but with a pop, setting itself apart from darker colors like black or dark grey. You can coordinate jewelry and other accessories by matching the color or mimicking the geometric rhinestone pattern with a statement necklace or embellished shoe. Similarly, you can wear an outfit that is more inspired by this piece while still letting it stand out, such as a power suit. You can wear a textured top in a similar orchid shade beneath a light or dark grey blazer or suit jacket with matching pant. To bring out more of the purple, try to find a pointed-toe shoe, the shape of which will complement the geometric pattern on the clutch, in the same shade.

The great thing about statement pieces like this hard case satin clutch is that they can be used to stand out completely or to inspire the outfits they are being worn with. In any case and no matter what the occasion, a statement piece like this purple rhinestone clutch can help you create countless looks and styles and will always add that bit of oomph and flare any outfit you don. Bold pieces help add personality to your look and help you stand out from the crowd.
