SnakeSkin Fashion Accessories

It’s the year to wear snakeskin accessories. While still a walk on the wild side like any other animal print, snakeskin is a little more sleek and elegant. Working patterns and prints into your wardrobe can be tricky, but when worn right and accessorized correctly they can really make a statement.

The key to patterns is to wear them sparingly. Choose one print item among more solid colors or neutral textures. Animal print can make any outfit bold but it only truly stands out when it is put successfully on display. Snakeskin, while sleek and subtle, can be worn for more casual occasions as well as professional or even for elegant events. It all depends on how you wear it.

One of the more casual options to wear any print is with a scarf. A cotton snakeskin scarf looks great with any basic outfit and can be a nice refreshing addition to any basic v-neck tee and jeans combo. Even smaller accessories in this print are great little additions to more casual outfits, such as slender belts or a handbag. Additionally, any of these simple, casual options can be paired with the famous little black dress and instantly transform into more dressy outfit elements. For instance a chiffon print scarf can be worn for either occasion but a silk scarf will instantly look more professional or more elegant. A clutch purse is also a great item to have and can be worn with just about any style dress or formal wear.

Don’t limit yourself to thinking in terms of accessories! Though accessories are versatile and can be used to easily transform outfits or give them new life, clothing pieces are great as well if worn well. A snakeskin blouse is great, especially when paired with a neutral pant and colored shoe. This sort of ensemble can be worn straight from the office to a night out the town without needing to change a thing. If you’re feeling a little more bold, a snakeskin pant could work as well. It can look particularly sleek when worn with a neutral top and shoes, though black is perhaps the best option. A print can make any otherwise solid outfit suddenly more textured and interesting without being over the top. If you’re looking to get your animal print in with a dress, the key is to choosing a great shoe. Depending on the tone of the dress, a bold colored shoe could be the perfect addition to make you stand out (in the good way, of course).

Animal prints are here to stay, but the trick is to know how to make them work for you. Assess your style and preferences to determine whether an accessory or clothing piece would suit you best, or perhaps get some of both! The key to wearing any pattern is a mastery of mixing and matching. Chicastic has many snakeskin pattern fashion accessories for women. Check them out now!

Winter Fashion Accessories

When we think of winter accessories we usually tend to think of hats, scarves and gloves. While there are plenty of run-of-the-mill winter accessories made only to keep us warm, we often forget that they can be chic and stylish, too. Not only that, but there are some bits of jewelry that work best in winter that can add some glam to the wintry season.

Scarves are a great go-to winter accessory. They come in multitudes of styles, colors, prints, and fabrics and can be worn for any occasion if you accessorize correctly. A big, comfy knit infinity scarf always goes great with an over-sized sweater and leggings, while a silk scarf can still keep your neck warm when you’re heading to work or a formal event. It’s always good to have a small collection of scarves, in different colors or prints that suit you that you can use no matter what you’re wearing, where you’re headed, or how cold it is. Hats are also fashionable, whether you’re sporting a modern beanie or a retro felt cloche, and even though they can be removed once you reach your destination, they are perfectly acceptable to wear continuously. Gloves are versatile, too. You can go with simple knit gloves or mittens for a casual outing, or you can slip into some fur (or faux-fur) lined leather gloves for a more polished look.

You don’t have to discount wearing dresses once the winter months set it. Leggings and tights are hot accessories all year round and add some oomph while keeping your legs protected and warm despite the weather. A patterned or bold colored tight can make any winter outfit pop, and leggings are always comfy when paired with over-sized sweaters, or even with dresses and skirts as well for extra warmth. Layering is always in, and it definitely comes in handy when the weather calls for it. Don’t shy away from skirts, dresses, or any other leg-flattering pieces, especially when there is a whole world of leggings and tights to explore.

And of course, winter accessories can refer to winter jewelry as well. While jewelry trends change with the seasons, jewel-tones are usually synonymous with winter fashion, and while silver and gold are always in style, playing up these styles can really parallel the glittery frost outside your window and add that glamorous wintry shimmer to your look.

Like any season, winter has it’s share of accessories and styles, so don’t be afraid to mix and match and, most of all, stay warm! Chicastic has some fun winter accessories for women, that can be worn casually or formally to stay warm yet look fashionable.
