The Age of Fashion

Brooch featured on Age of FashionmainThe always stunning Blake Lively’s newest film “The Age of Adeline” not only shows off her acting abilities, but beautifully showcases fashion trends over several decades. Adeline Bowman, played by Lively, is 29 years old when she is involved in a freak accident in 1937 and from that moment on, does not age a day.

Although her fashion choices evolve with the changing decades, her style remains simple and classic. To get some of these great Adeline inspired looks, we recommend the vintage style chiffon maxi cocktail dress. Keep the look soft with the dress in coral or yellow, a big Spring/Summer 2015, trend or go with the animal print to give it a more modern twist. Pair with some T-strap peep toe platforms and classic envelope clutch and you’re in business. Finish off the look with a sterling silver cocktail ring for some vintage looking charm.

For a more casual look, the high low layered top paired with a pair of slacks or very dark denim is perfect. In addition to being a flattering cut on almost anyone, the buttons on the shoulder gives it the Adeline flair. The shrug style cardigan is great if you need to layer. Finally, a rhinestone studded broach not only gives you that classic look but also ties the whole outfit together nicely.

Chicastic can help you look great no matter what decade you’re dressing for!

Throwback Thursday – Clarissa Explains It All

Clarissa Darling on Clarissa Explains It All had some great early nineties fashion. She loved layers, loud prints, loud colors, and black boots. What would she wear today if we bumped into her?

She might be wearing a polka dot chiffon scarf in neon yellow to get the layers she loves, a bright color, and a pattern too. We’re sure she’d also still be mixing patterns, but to bring it up to date, they’d be in the same color family. She might bring out the color of the polka dot and pair it with a striped shirt in the same color family.

Another style she enjoyed was bright colored socks with black shoes. Today she could incorporate bright tights into her look and rock some black ankle booties. She might even have updated her loose black leather jacket to a cropped bomber jacket.

Clarissa loved her statement pieces so jewelry and clutches would be a great way for her to still express herself. A statement necklace like this vintage multi layer collar necklace would be a unique piece. For purses she’d let her imagination run wild. Anything from knuckle duster clutches to give her a tough feel, a glass bugle bead hard box clutch for a unique pattern, to a bright chevron straw and matching leather envelope clutch for her love of color.

Regardless of what she’d be wearing, you know she’d be doing something she was passionate about.
