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.

Back to School

Stores are already gearing up for back to school shopping. Items for the dorm, school supplies, and fall clothes are being displayed. Want to get your teenager or college bound child prepared for the cool weather? Then check out the scarves, hats, and bags available at Chicastic.

Infinity tube scarves are a warm option for the months ahead. They’re available in thick or thin knit versions or even with fringe. Try a vibrant teal or a light pink. Maybe a multicolor light and dark grey tube scarf would match your child’s style more. Oblong scarves work well for the autumn weather too and offer a lot of ways to wear them. For example, they can be wrapped around tightly for warmth, hung loosely for a cool style, or looped and pulled through for a simple chic look.

Don’t forget a warm hat to go with your scarf. A cotton two toned fisherman style hat offers a clean autumn look. A beanie hat with a leather strap comes in beautiful fall colors. Or try a knitted winter slouchy hat that comes in grey, off white, or black. If you have a gal that likes more structure, then try a wool bowler hat.

Another great back to school item is a fashionable backpack, tote, or satchel for their school supplies. Try this beige small backpack with a front flap or a snakeskin pattern glossy hobo handbag.

At Chicastic find all these fashionable items and more for your student.

Tube Scarves for Spring

Scarves are practically useful all year round, especially in Spring. Make sure you have an infinity scarf or any kind of warm wrap around to stay prepared for weather change.

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.

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.

Staying warm in style

Despite the weather, staying warm and cozy this winter can also be chic. By choosing the right items, you’ll never look too flab when trying to stay warm this season.

Layering is everyone’s best friend. Cardigans are an easy and versatile way to stay warm this winter. Loose fitting knit cardigans look great over tees or flannel button-downs and can be worn in a variety of ways to keep your outfits looking new and fresh all season without looking worn out. Vests, sweaters, and long-sleeved tees can be layered in any number of chic combinations and can give new life to tees and tanks you might otherwise put away for the season. Even printed thermal tops are trending! And remember, you are also safe in purchasing a few heavy-knit sweaters for the season. Wear them with skinny jeans or over thick paneled leggings and look great while keeping yourself warm.

A pashmina, chiffon, or a tube scarf is a great addition to any winter ensemble. Be sure to have several in your wardrobe to wear with multiple outfits on any occasion. Tie it around your neck to protect yourself from the elements while still accessorizing your outfit. Use it as a wrap-around for a dress when you go out to dinner or even just feeling a little chilly around the house. Even draping it over your shoulders gives warmth as well as a bit of that Old Hollywood feel. Scarves are great for any occasion and are essential to layering. If you want to play it up a little, choose a bold, jewel-toned scarf or funky animal print.

When it comes to footwear, it seems boots are in no matter what season it is, but winter is when they are put to the best use. Boots can keep the snow out of your soles as well as protect you from slipping and sliding out on the ice in dangerous weather, all while still looking stylish. Additionally, most boots give you some wiggle room to layer socks or even to wear leggings under skinny jeans or pants if you’re wearing a calf or knee-high boot, and can help trap the warmth. Also consider wearing wool socks or other garments. Wool is always chic when it comes to cozy and helps trap your body heat to keep you toasty.

Choose your items wisely, even thinner garments can be saved with the right warm accessories, whether it’s a scarf, plush leggings, or cardigan. Staying warm can also mean staying chic. Chicastic has a large variety of tube scarves, cardigans, pashminas and fashion scarves.
