There’s something for everyone at Chicwish! From feisty minis to colorful maxis to tailored capris. 🌸☀️
It’s that time of year again, time to get ready for the Coachella Music Festival! Just as exciting are all of the super cool festival fashions. Whether you’re attending or not, you can take advantage of the awesome trend and incorporate these wardrobe components into your spring break style and summer looks.
1.) Crocheted Pieces- Shawls, scarfs, tunics, bags, beanies and skirts are all festival fresh. It’s important to remember to only wear one piece at a time, you don’t want to end up looking like you cleaned out grandma’s closet.
2.) Layered Necklaces- Coins, horns, stars and trinkets, whether silver or gold are red hot. Very chic also at the moment is anything rose gold. Be on the lookout for beaded necklaces, beach glass, shells and braided cord pieces as well.
3.) Acid wash denim- No you read that right, I said acid wash denim, especially cutoffs and overalls. It’s difficult for me to even write the terminology without hearing the Pet Shop Boys playing in my head.
4.) Tie Dye and Other Painted Fabrics- This trend adds the arthouse-hippie feel and will always be a winner at festival. The whole look conjures up Jim Morrison, John Lennon, and Strawberry Fields Forever.
5.) Layered Peasant Dresses- Besides being so chic, this style dress is just so comfortable, look for the multicolor cotton and gossamer pieces. The whole look is whimsical, breezy and loose. Go ahead and go on back for a second corn dog and maybe a third, it won’t show in a peasant dress.
6.) Cowboy Boots- I love cowboy boots when worn with everything listed above and everything else in my closet too. Make sure they are on the flatter side or you’ll find yourself sinking in the Coachella desert sand.
This fall, maroon, mustard and rust can’t be missed. Invest in a few fun pieces and blend them in with your existing wardrobe. These pants are super comfy and only 15.00! In early fall, they look on trend the way I’ve worn them here or in winter rock them with a black oversized sweater. There are so many options available to the style conscious diva this month— a mustard mini with over-the-knee boots, or a maroon trench over a basic black shift. Feel free to express yourself in cooler weather by layering the season’s hottest hues.
From Worth Avenue to the local mall, camo is this fall’s neutral of choice and you won’t be blending in. Instead of conjuring images of your dad’s hunting gear, the new camouflage is on trend and downright sexy. Looking great when mixed with everything from red to navy to burgundy and black, we can all benefit from this trendy pattern. A simple tank dress will be perfect for work when paired with a black blazer and a chunky sandal. This season’s camo bodycon dresses are a great choice for date night when paired with a tailored pump. Teens headed back to class can choose from all styles of jeans, rompers, and jackets. Several collections showing at New York Fashion Week will also be prominently displaying the hue. We should all rejoice because green camo is one of the few colored patterns that flatters all skin tones. The key to wearing it right is to not overdo it. We’ve all seen fashion blunders, and the way to avoid making the mistakes is to keep it age appropriate. This can mean simply adding a camo scarf to a black jumpsuit or carrying a camo bag with a red dress. One of the most wearable trends for everyone that we’ve seen in a few years, there’s definitely a way everyone can benefit from this red hot trend!
What says springtime better than the colorful, dancing movement of pleats? This season, everyone from Azzedine Alaia to A New Day, to Chanel is featuring pleats for spring, and it’s not hard to see why! The basic pleated skirt in a longer length looks great with a vintage band tee knotted at the waist for a casual outing. The same piece also looks wonderful when worn with a classic sandal and a spaghetti strap camisole accented with your best diamond jewels for dinner. Comfortable, and non-binding, pleats are also wonderful travel garments. This season’s items withstand sitting for long periods without so much as a single wrinkle. With an item so versatile, comfortable, on trend, cool and downright stylish, why not channel your inner Marilyn and opt for one of these gorgeous skirts as you spin through spring?
