Throwback Thursday- Love Actually

Love Actually was a film that followed eight couples and gave us quite a few memorable romantic scenes. It’s more of a Christmas film due to the timeline of the movie, but it’s set in winter and it’s romantic so we’re using it as a lead up to Valentine’s Day. There are many characters in the film and we noticed there is a lot of bundling up from sweaters to scarves to hats. This movie was released over ten years ago, so we wonder, if these characters had to keep warm this year, what would we see them in?

Puffy coats are popular this year. They’re more fitted than in years past which is a nice change, some are actually quite figure flattering. We think at least a few of the characters would sport one of them. Peacoats, or other buttoned and collared coats, are still in fashion. Some of the characters wore beautiful coats in the film, like Natalie’s fabulous long red coat. It would still look great today.

As far as winter accessories, infinity scarves would be a great updated piece. Beanie hats are still in fashion so no issues there. For gloves they’d be interested in getting ones with special fingertips for smartphones, or they could even go for fingerless gloves.

If they were just hanging around indoors, we’d recommend a nice comfy cardigan. They could pair it with jeans and boots and even a lightweight scarf.

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.
