CHICWISH

As snow still coats the ground in many parts of the states and the weather man disappoints the spring-wishers with yet another prediction of glittery flakes—I can only sit and dream up all the different ways that fashionist as everywhere can slay this spring. I’ve been lusting after luscious florals, pastels and sandals and spring just cannot arrive fast enough. But when it does, I dare not leave my winter white behind with the snowflakes. It’s definitely got to come with all of us! White is angelic. Sleek. Minimal. Neutral. Sophisticated. No, we mustn’t leave it behind. I’ve pulled together a few cool tips to turn your crisp winter white into light and airy spring perfection! Peruse through Chic Wish’s coolest crisp white offerings and then check out the suave styling tips down at the bottom:


Retro Floral Cutout Bucket Bag in White

 

                                                                           (Price: $79.90)

 

The bucket bag is one of the top trending bags of the spring season and will last well into the summer and fall of 2015! This bag favors texture, as it features floral cut-outs as opposed to an actual floral print. 

 

My Victorian Dream Full Lace Dress

                                                  (Price: $79.90)


This ‘My Victorian Dream’ full lace dress is an incredible vintage-inspired piece that creeps up the neckline in the most regal fashion. It also features uber-feminine ruffles and lace that create a super romantic look!

Ethereal Relaxed Embroidered Dress in White

                                                           (Price: $79.90)

‘Relaxed’ is the perfect description for this easy-going white dress with blue embroidery. Its A-line silhouette caters to virtually any shape and shows of the shoulders elegantly.  

Fringed Lace Crochet Shorts in White

                   (Price: $33.92)

 

These white lace and fringe shorts are serving the perfect dose of ‘boho chic’ and the flirty fringe is sure to move right along with your sway!

And nowww for the styling tips that will have you flaunting winter white throughout the spring season:
1.Go with light fabrics that move with you.
As you can see, movement is everything for most garments. If it doesn’t move well, then you won’t achieve that clean, sleek look you’re aiming for. Fabrics like the fringe and ruffles above will elegantly animate the feminine sway.

2.Don’t forget your florals!
Nothing sings ‘springtime’ better than florals! And remember, you don’t just have to do a floral ‘print’. The retro floral cut-out bucket bag above shows how textures can offer the visual as well!

3.Incorporate the Appropriate Colors.
Whether you opt for electrifying colors like cobalt blue and neon yellow or softer hues like lavender and blush pink—splashing a bit of color will undoubtedly provide you the springtime look you seek!

Check out what I would do with that white bucket bag I chose

 


Flavorful ensemble, right? I chose a Mary Katrantzou Landscape Printed Silk Dress (swoon!) featuring a lovely flamingo. Once I spotted the Sophia Webster flamingo heels to compliment the look, I just went Flamingo crazy! Lol, I am always entirely up for a themed ensemble done with great taste and I love how this look features the white floral cut-out bucket bag but there’s not a drop of ‘winter’ whatsoever! Much fun!

How will YOU be turning your winter white pieces into spring-worthy attire?

Enjoy!


So this spring is due to be a whirl of crazy prints, bold colors, suave silhouettes and sweet neutrals for the minimalists! Just like fall boots and winter trenches, you’re going to be needing a few go-to items that will set off your spring closet like no other while providing you with an easy-access plan for those last-minute dates and “I have nothing to wear” days.

Why not go vintage with skirt sets? Serve a bit of Clueless flavor while channeling your inner Cher, Dionne and Tai!

Remember how they use to strut through Bronson Alcott High School in Beverly Hills in the best of threads? They practically created the 90’s girl uniform and had all of us blurting out, “As if!” and “Whatever!” You can borrow their style and make it 2015-ready with the skirt sets at flattering prices from Chic Wish. Take a look-see at our lovely pieces:

Coat & Skirt Set

Price: $56.02

This double-breasted flap coat and skirt set almost gives off the illusion of a fitted trench coat! Make this teal skirt set and its serious silhouette more playful with a printed blouse underneath and heels! 

Houndstooth Top & Skirt Set

Price: $52.90

Double-up on the vintage with the classic houndstooth print featured on this top and skirt set! The flirty hemline of the circle skirt really makes this look generously youthful!

 Fly Away Birds Embossed Shirt and Skirt Set

Price: $50.92

This blouse and skirt set features the fly away bird print that envelopes the skirt the top’s collar! It’s a lovely way to incorporate an interesting print while keeping the colors at a minimum. Including a splash of color with the heels wouldn’t hurt! I’d recommend deeper colors like violet, burnt orange or teal! Gold accessories will elegantly elevate your cute ensemble!

Cotton Flowers Sweatshirt & Skirt Set

(Price: $64.52)

And here’s another black and white print skirt set but these cotton flowers add a more feminine touch to this one! The sweatshirt top with the scoop neckline also makes this particular set a much more casual choice! 

Raw-Trimmed Coat and Skirt Set

(Price: $50.92)

Get a little more playful with this raw trimmed jacket and skirt set that will match your sway as you saunter throughout your day! This skirt set in dark grey offers a different visual, allowing you to experiment with texture as opposed to print. A printed blouse or bright, bold color will further your stand-out look! 

Now check out how I styled the Fly Away birds top and skirt set:

The trick to styling a vintage style skirt set is to modernize it with trendy accessories! In this case, I pulled the Aperlai Bordeaux Velvet Geisha Doll heel with the golden textured heel and single ankle strap. It’s a youthful heel with a lot of personality and sophistication! Next, I pulled a quilted leather Vera Bradley bucket bag since it’s the hottest trending bag this season! To top it off, I layered a bit with a Sheinside sleeveless vest. Etsy sunglasses and a wine lip tops this entire look off nicely!

A skirt set gives you two less pieces you have to worry about styling together and totally reads vintage chic! Remember to mix the vintage appeal with modern accessories and tops to create a visual hit with your style!

Enjoy!




In 2014, Style Bistro dubbed landscape print the “trend to try”. Though we saw the occasional landscape print dress and top on retail sales floors, we hardly saw enough fashionistas wearing this trend at the stylish level it could be worn. 2015—spring 2015, precisely—boasts great prints, wonderful colors and yes--- room for a bit more print innovation. The landscape print is just chic enough to slide right into the open spaces of your style plan for this spring. Sometimes the places on the globe that we treasure the most, aren’t a simple trolley ride away. Whether you have a cozy view of an autumn forest or a picturesque vision of London’s evening skyline—Chic Wish has the perfect garments to help you capture, keep and display the most beautiful scenes in the world.

Check out our lovely landscape print flared midi skirts that will provide just the amount of energy and style that spring 2015 will most certainly require.

This autumn forest landscape print is reminiscent of the most graceful watercolor painting. It’s a lovely way to bring the autumn season with you into the spring while leaving the nippy weather behind. It’s a captivating piece, indeed.

And say you’d like to sport a landscape print without it being the star of your ensemble? This scenic print Jacquard midi skirt is the perfect answer for your closet!

The scenic print is reserved for the hemline so you still get the styling benefits of a ‘white skirt’ since it is primarily white. Luckily for you, this print skirt has several more levels of personality and playfulness!

Though most landscape prints feature portraits of lovely nature scenes, other unexpected visuals may catch your eye as well. Take a break from the average navy blue skirt with this pleated midi skirt featuring the bold, beautiful night skyline of London!

Style these skirts in a variety of ways to suit your tastes. Saunter around in a crop top featuring the Bardot neckline and a pair of strappy heels. Or, what about a lovely leotard with the Sabrina neckline and ankle booties? The choice is yours. Either way, you’ll be beautiful.

With our imaginatively designed landscape print skirts, you get to take yourself and awed onlookers on a lovely pictorial excursion as you head out and about through your day. These skirts are incredibly feminine and flirty. They also promise to offer so much sophistication and poise to your wardrobe.

Or your office’s secretary of how much she enjoyed trailing through the autumn forests of Switzerland. You see, fashion proves each day just how powerful it truly is. It is so much greater than just fabric and thread and patterns and colors and prints. Fashion offers an entire experience and you’re bound to enjoy an amazing one with these landscape print skirts!

Enjoy them now! You’ll thank us later!
