CHICWISH

It’s time for the Chic picks of the week!!!

I guess I went relaxed this week! Though I love all of my floral maxi dresses, elaborate heels and snug fits, I can always appreciate a loose fit with a dash of youthful quirkiness! I also deeply appreciate details that allow a fashionista to show off some skin (who doesn’t want to get a little sexy from time to time?) while maintaining a certain amount of modesty! When it comes to fashion, it only takes one inch too short or one cut-out too many to turn a classy ensemble into a trashy costume—and we reserve those for Halloween only! LOL!

Every week, I get to ogle over the new Chicwish goodies and I swear their garments never disappoint! From cut-outs to cold shoulders to daisies, I couldn’t get enough of these hot-to-trot pieces:

#1 Grey Cutout Shoulder Knit Top

                                                                (Price: $42.42)

This grey cut-out shoulder knit top is so summer chic! I love that the top is designed with neutral colors because white and grey provide lots of styling flexibility! Soft pastels would work here just as well as bright, bold hues! A pair of rich orange flared pants with pointed toe heels peeking through is exactly where I’d take this pretty top! You?

#2 Daisy Grids Dolly Dress in Navy

                                                                      (Price: $50.92)

 

I love floral embroidery as much as I love a great floral print and this dress serves up the sweetest dose! With a soft, ruffled hemline and t-shirt style sleeves silhouette, what’s not to love? It’s perfect for an outing that calls for a little casual chic! Style with platform sneakers and a cross body bag if you’re feeling daring and trendy. Go for sleek, pointed toe flats for a sleek, clean look!

#3 When Casual Calls Oversize Shirt Dress in Wine

                                                               (Price: $44.97)

The only thing I love better than fine wine is the wine hue on a gorgeous dress so this When Casual calls dress totally hits my eye the right way! I blogged about the T-shirt dress trend previously, and it still stands that it’s a super versatile dress that fits for any fashionista no matter the style!

#4 Flamingo Full Lace Waterfall Dress in Black

                                                                      (Price: $50.92)

This flamingo lace waterfall lace serves up boho chic mixed with Morticia tease, don’t you agree? The dress comes in white, grey, and flamingo pink but this black version simply has me mesmerized! Style this with ankle boots and put your hair up in a high bun to give the lace look a little edge!

Stay chic and enjoy!

On Wednesdays, we wear pink.

The phrase has long been one of the most recycled quotes from the cult classic movie that is Mean Girls. Eleven years later and it’s bigger than it ever was. We still feel smug satisfaction when we come across the “You Can’t Sit with Us” phrase plastered across a t-shirt or hat because deep down? There are a few people in our lives we’d love to turn down in the cafeteria—or at least in the break room at work.

The Plastics? They were horrible chicks but actually quite funny, if only situationally. Admit it, we really only hated Regina George. I mean, really, am I the only girly-girl who secretly exhaled when Cady began her dramatic descent into her full-out Plastic position? Face it. She did dress light years better.

Lol, oh and can I admit whenever I coincidentally wear pink on Wednesdays, the infamous phrase runs through my mind and I laugh out loud? That phrase still keeps its cool today because of the millions of global glam girls who unapologetically adore the hue.

                         Blogger, Caitlin Lindquist, of ALittleDashofDarling.com

 So in honor of the movie that appealed to misfits, geeks and real-life plastics everywhere? This Wednesday, we’re doing pink! If you’re not with the wagon then have several seats, ya know, just not with us. ; )


 Cheers to PINK. It forever remains a spring color that always adds the dose of femininity your closet needs! Here are a few ways you can wear the prettiest pink items from the Chic Wish stash!

Happy Spring and Summer!

The boho chic trend is still going strong out here on these fashionable streets. Yeah, it’s been around awhile. You can pretty much spot out the trend, which is a blend of bohemian and hippie influence, by the footprints of details like fringe, suede, crocheted lace, embroidery, flowers and long, flowing fabrics. It’s also a nature-influenced style so you’d be hard-pressed to find a boho chic section in any store that lacks flowers and faux-hides.


                                                     Blogger, Annie, of StylishPetite.com

                                                   Got a Date Mint Lace Dress, $67.92

 So if you find yourself newly smitten by fringe (like us) or falling for crochet lace kimonos, then you just might be bitten by the boho bug! And Chicwish’s new arrivals are bound to keep you lovesick, as we’ve gone boho chic bonkers with dresses, cardigans and tops that seventies hippies would kill to time travel and wear.

                          Blogger, Shanna, of BecauseShannaSaidSo.com

                                 Tribal Boho Embroidered Top, $33.92

The boho chic always looks like natural, homegrown chic---as though you rolled over, grabbed the first thing out of your wardrobe and it just so happened to be absolutely gorgeous. It also has the benefit of being versatile enough to look entirely fairy-esque and enchanting one moment and super backwoods the next. The style always manages to make you look like you just left from cozying up beachside while engrossed in a heavy novel. It’s just an incredible trend that offers effortless fab with an unfailing track record.

                                Blogger, Alexandra Pereira, of lovely-pepa.com
                                 Greenery Embroidered Mid-Sleeve Top, $36.47

Check out Chicwish’s newest and best boho chic offerings! Your friends won’t know how the heck you do it:

The black and white color combo is one that can be much fun to style with! It’s super traditional, classic and almost too hard to get wrong—unless of course you’re so traditional that you teeter-totter on the Boring fence and eventually fall over in black and white monotony. Yeah, don’t do that.

Find a way to make black and white the fun, exciting and sophisticated combination of shades it can certainly be. To help you along, I’ve come up with 4 ways to transform your black and white style combinationsfrom bland to breathtaking! Check it out:

#1 Try Stand-Out Accessories

                      Swing Keyboard Pleated Crepe Dress, $50.92

Accessories always do the outfit-carrying and if ever you find yourself stuck in a styling rut, then take a look at your collection of accessories to pull you right out. Adding a statement necklace here and ring there has been the life-saver for many a’ boring ensembles so let it work wonders for your black and white palette!  

#2 Go super minimal!

                               Bead the Grace Wool Blend Dolly Dress, $64.52

 

If taking it old school and simple is really your style, then do it so well that we go, “Bomb!” instead of “Bleh”! The trick is to have your black and white pieces be as sophisticated as they are subtle. As luxurious as they are traditional. As fabulous as they are simplistic. Go super minimal and really let a simple piece do the talking. The trick is to find a silhouette that most flatters your figure and styling it with quality accessories that don’t entirely steal the show, but compliment perfectly!

 #3 Incorporate Prints!

If you ask me, black and white is loads more fun when you pack on the prints! From stripes to polka dots to gingham to paisley, there are plenty of chic prints to play with even when you’re sticking to neutral shades!You can even opt for the classic LBD with a black and white printed shoe!

               Twirling Flower Crochet Mesh Dress in Black,$59.42


#4 Try Black & White Accessories with your ‘All Black Everything’

‘All black everything’ certainly has this mysterious allure to it that reads ‘effortless sophistication’, but maybe it’s time to step out in something just a little different from your usual MO. Add an interesting twist to your ensemble by trying black and white accessories with your all black look! It’s an interesting visual showing off tons of style acumen and personality! Not everyone can pull this one off. Will you try your hand at this fun styling method?

It’s just as easy to get black and white super boring as it is to get it incredibly right! Reference these style tips when you want to try out the color combination and need a few ideas for a chic transformation from ‘bland’ to ‘breathtaking’!

Enjoy! 

Fringe, it seems, has been around for EVER!The natives sported it on jackets, skirts and moccasins. Today, we wear them on everything from heels to dresses to leather jackets to skirts to kimonos! We love the way fringe moves with us as we saunter from place to place and we love the sense of culture it provides as we channel our inner Eskimo and Native American! Some of us even love it on our home décor items because it just adds to the earthy yet modern ambience we love to create.

There’s just something about fringe that screams ‘natural’ and ‘care-free’.

                Camel Fringe Shoulder Bag
                           (Price: $33.92)

                                  Swinging Sheer Lace Longline Cardigan

                                                       (SALE Price: $29.90)

Whether just for visual kicks or being functional (fringe was originally created with a utilitarian purpose—to shed rain and allow wet clothes to dry faster), this trendsticks around— serving up chic garment after garment and accessory after accessory.

                                  Delicate Hand-knit Fringe Cape in Off-White
                                                            (Price: $42.42)

Use the fringe trend to get your boho chic tease on and let your fringe tops be as versatile as you need them to be for your spring and summer outings. Crochet tops featuring fringe are great for storing over cut-off shorts, using as a simple dress depending on the length or doubling as a bathing suit cover-up!

                                        Daisy Floral Crochet Fringe Top
                                                     (Price: $38.17)

Fringe is always super festive and can be worn casually to the beach or more dressed up to an evening cocktail party! 

Its versatility is exactly why we are still going ga-ga over this trend! Are you sold on fringe yet?

Psst…All of these fringe items are available right here on Chicwish.com so make a wish and then  click on your favorite pieces to make it ensure it comes true! 

We’ve stolen enough of Grandma’s looks to admit it: Sometimes, Granny’s got a point!

Lol, getting a little bored with the trendy clothes in your own closets? A quirky tip we can give you to spice up your wardrobe, or at least how you feel about it, is to re-direct you to your grandmother’s closet! You never know how she might inspire you to re-visit and re-imagine your own! Fashion’s a cyclical industry and most of the things we love now are just trends our grandmothers wore (and maybe hated) when they were in college.

Oxfords. Mary Janes. Flared midi skirts. Overalls. Trench coats. Skirt sets. Yes, our grandmothers wore all of those things in a barrage of colors and styles during their grade school days and well into adulthood! So don’t give MeMa the look of puzzled annoyance if she ever tells you that your closet reminds her of her old stomping grounds. Or what she put on for her very first date. Or how she dressed for a church service or ceremony. Her reminiscing on the old days could put you ahead of the runway’s most prestigious designers because you know vintage is always whispering their names, even when they’re trying to design for the future.

So here are a few pieces that your beloved grandmother may be able to pull out black-and-white photographs of herself wearing just a hop, skip and a decade jump ago:

Skirt Set (Or Shorts Set…)

                               Full Flower Crochet Top and Skirt Set in Blue

                                                             (Price: $61.97)

Skirt and shorts sets were for sidewalk strutting as you head to Bloomingdale's and depending on length, also acceptable for the work place.

Culottes


                                         Baby Blue Culotte with Cutout Detail

                                                        (Price: $42.42)

Culottes were previously worn underneath dresses and petticoats to make sure that a dress's modesty was never compromised. Now, we wear them as pants and let them just blow in the wind!

Wide-Leg Pants

 

                                                Cropped Wide Leg Pants in White

                                                               (Price: $42.42)

A pair of wide-legged pants, usually differing from culottes in terms of silhouette, were all the rage during the 60's, 70's and 80's! To this day, there's nothing quite as powerful as seeing a woman ‘Olivia Pope’ strutting through the workplace with flared dress pants and pointed toe heels peeking from the hemline cuffs or stealing the show with cropped lengths!

Floral Lace Maxi Dresses

                                           Love me Tender Lace Maxi Dress
                                                               (Price: $76.42)

Women wore floral dresses all the time back in the day and a floral maxi dress was pretty much the neighborhood picnic uniform for women. You could also catch plenty of women wearing these floral maxi dresses to Sunday school or to weddings!

Cat-Eye Glasses

                                    Dark Amber Kitten Cat Eye Sunglasses
                                                         (Price: $19.47)

Lol, if you ask a millennial who started the cat eye glasses trend, then they'll probably tell you Katy Perry. Lol, Ms. Perry will probably tell you she stole it from her Grandma. ; )

Chiffon Blouses

                                  Flower Shadows Chiffon Shirt in White
                                                     (Price: $38.17)

Our grandmothers have been tucking chiffon blouses into their flared midi skirts and wearing them with their backless sandals and low pointed toe pumps since before we were born!

Check these other looks featuring fashions inspired by the fab vintage finds our Grandmothers wore regularly:


Yep, go ahead and thank your Grandmother because sometimes she’s got a very fashionable point. : )

Travelista: (n) pronounced trah-vell-lee-stah; def: One who travels the world near and far seeing and experiencing new things—and all in style!

Is that you? Is that the ‘you’ you’ll be next year or once you graduate school or once you get that new awesome gig? We’re with ya! We believe the best parts of life involve expanding your mental world by seeing much of the real world. Do you dream of trekking through the Himalayas? Or scoring an epic photograph of a stunning waterfall? Or dining on the balcony of a restaurant in Italy as you overlook the most breathtaking landscape ever? What about walking up to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and singing Beyoncé’sDéjà vu at the top, like me?

Skipping from state to state or country to country is a pastime for many and these four Chic Wish pieces serve as a lovely reminder of somewhere you’ve been or inspiration for you to tack a new destination onto your bucket list! Check them out:

Bon Voyage Ruffled Chiffon Skirt + Top

                                                        (Top: $42.42, Skirt: $44.97)

As the product description says, this skirt set is most definitely unlike anything you’ve got hanging in your closet! The vintage map print of the world stretches across every inch of the chiffon fabric—not excluding the girly ruffles! This skirt set is sure to represent your adventurous personality and to celebrate your passion for landing your feet on every part of the world!  If the map print is too much of an overload for you, then split the pieces up and wear them with additional separates.

New Swan Stone Castle Pleated Midi Skirt

                                                                    (Price: $46.00)

I bet you didn’t know Germany’s a country littered with the most beautiful castles in the world, did you? It’s okay. We normally think of France and maybe, Italy when we think of great castles. The New Swan Stone Castle featured in this landscape print midi skirt is a lovely representation of the actual castle located in Bavaria!

Night Skyline of London

                                                                              (Price: $48.00)

Plenty of people will tell you that there’s not many night skylines that can compete with the bright, beautiful one in London. Maybe that’ll be your next destination! For now, wear it around your hemline!

Need a little more travel inspiration? Check out some of these potential bucket list add-ons:

Ahh, the classic shift dress. : )

It’s the simplest silhouette with the most iconic impact. A mom and a college freshman can both wear the shift dress—showing off their fabulous legs while looking totally age-appropriate. During chillier months, we layer them like crazy with outerwear, stockings and boots to ward off the cutting wind. The spring and summer, however, always summon the sexier side of the shift dress.

                                         Pearly Neckline Shift Dress in Hot Pink

                                                                    Price: $44.97

Yes, the shift dress enjoys its best days between Easter and August’s end! This means NOW is the perfect time to show off those legs you’ve been hiding from the world for months! Leave the stockings home and step out in a fabulous shift dress without worrying about goosebumps making an appearance! Have a little fun—and do it with the ease of a shift dress!

                                         Full Flower Cut Crochet Blue Dress
                                                               Price: $56.90

Parade around with an effortless shift dress while you let a bold print or texture steal the show. You may also color-block the shift dress in a solid hue with strappy open-toed sandals to tease passers-by with your lovely pedicure that says, “Yes! Spring is totally HERE!’

                                 Belted Scroll Hem Shift Dress in Wine
                                                           Price: $44.97
