5 Unique Styles For All Occasions From Chico’s

Even with my casual, everyday life, many occasions pop up. Each of these occasions calls for different looks and styles. Learning how to put together a stylish and appropriate look for every event is important, and knowing the brands I can go to is key. Today, I’m showing you 5 unique styles for all occasions from Chico’s that I hope you can find inspiration from.

To make it easier for you to get the links to my outfits, Chico’s has set up a storefront for me with all the clothing I’m wearing!!! Once the store opens up, you can scroll through the items until you find the piece you’re looking for. A few of the items I’m wearing are in different storefronts, so I’ll link each item with the correct storefront.

Chico’s And Their Unique Styles

First, let’s talk about Chico’s and why I can depend on them to find different styles for all occasions. Chico’s stands out as a retailer for women due to its commitment to versatility and inclusivity. The brand makes sure there is always something for any occasion with a wide range of styles and designs for petite and plus women, addressing women of all ages. Quality fabrics, special designs, and attention to customer comfort and style are just a few reasons I love shopping at Chico’s.

Styles For All Occasions: Mother’s Day, Graduations, Showers, Wedding Guests, Etc.

Be it a Mother’s Day occasion, attending a graduation ceremony, or gracing showers and weddings with your presence as an invited guest, the maxi dress holds elegance, comfort, and functional versatility. These dresses remain versatile in different types of events and seasons, for they can be styled up with stylish accessories when heading for formal meetings and gathered down for casual events.

Their silhouettes remain flattering to any body type and will, therefore, ensure that one acquires a gorgeous look. Added to that is their timeless quality: since maxi dresses come in every color and pattern imaginable, they’re the perfectly sustainable piece for your wardrobe, ready to complete perfectly any outfit for any occasion.

This Poplin Basket Weave Maxi Dress is gorgeous on its own or when paired with a blazer. Navy and white are a classic color combination, and the basket weave design is adorable. I love the navy tassel closure at the neckline that creates visual interest, and the puffed sleeves add the perfect amount of feminine appeal without being “girly.”

The smocked waist and flowing tiers help create a flattering shape for people like me who lack curves. The bell shape of the dress helps to balance out your body and is great for women who carry their weight in the lower half. Altogether, the combination of a smocked waist and bell-shaped tiers produce a defined, feminine silhouette. It is flattering on a wide range of body types, bringing definition at the waist, controlled volume, ease, and flexibility of movement.

This Linen Blend Stretch Blazer also helps create curves. Its silhouette draws the eyes inward and tricks the mind into thinking my waist is smaller than it is. #loveit Since this blazer is linen and unlined, it won’t create a lot of heat.

Styles For All Occasions: Traveling In Style

I love wearing a one-and-done item. Jumpsuits are perfect for most occasions, and this one is one of my favorites. It is stretchy and comfortable, which is perfect for wearing to meetings, traveling, or going out to eat. This Travelers Tie Waist Jumpsuit will also allow you to arrive at your destinations looking wrinkle-free, and that is a huge plus for me.

I know bathroom issues can be worrisome, but I didn’t have any problems with this jumpsuit. Its stretchiness allowed me to easily remove it when nature called. The tie waist is for looks only and doesn’t actually cinch in your waist. I’m wearing a size 1, which is perfect for me.

The jumpsuit is sleeveless, so I added the Traveler Chiffon Mix Cardigan. These two items are from the same line, and it looks like I’m wearing a vest, but the sleeves are part of the jumpsuit. The cardigan is gorgeous, and it is also part of the Travelers line. I’ll be able to wear this with sleeveless dresses, shorts, and white; in other words, it is very versatile.

The White Round Drop Earrings looked great with everything I’ve tried them with. They aren’t heavy, but they are substantial. I love Chico’s jewelry since it is always unique and of great quality. I have pieces that I’ve owned for years, and they still look great.

Talk about unique details; look at the Bone Lucite Heels. The lucite heels are so unique and stylish! I love this detail, and the heels will look great with dresses, shorts, etc. I’m wearing my usual size, so they run TTS.

Styles For All Occasions: Exploring in Comfort and Style

This casual outfit is the perfect combination of style and comfort. There are days when I love wandering through malls, and other days, I want to walk the streets of my little town. If you’ve ever been to Abingdon, VA, you know it has the cutest stores and antique shops. I love exploring all the cute things, and of course, I want to look cute, too.

I love, love, love this Watercolor Shirt! The colors are so vibrant and pretty, and the semi-sheer fabric is lightweight and drapes beautifully. Since it is sheer, I added a microfiber tank under the shirt. I usually wear a size 1, but I sized up to a 1.5 to accommodate the tank underneath.

These Neutral Modern Heels are perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer months. The raffia-wrapped heels are one of those details I mentioned earlier. These heels have padding for a comfortable fit and a modern look that will go great with dresses, shorts, pants, etc. I’m wearing my usual size 9, and they fit true to size.

Styles For All Occasions: Casual Everyday Style

I wear casual everyday style most days. Since I now work from home, I dress casually, and I only get fancy when going to an event or for a date night. I hate cold weather, so Joe and I stay home in the winter months. Now that the weather is warming up, it is time to start our weekly date nights again.

I was excited to get this Linen Blend Stretch Vest. The peplum style helps create curves, and I’m thrilled with how well it works. I’m wearing the same microfiber tank under the vest that I wore with the watercolor shirt above. The vest is a size 1, but the tank is a size 2. Microfiber tanks tend to run small, and if you want to wear them by themself, I suggest sizing up.

How cute are these Girlfriend Fray Hem Kick Flare Jeans? They are the perfect jeans for knocking around on a daily basis. The fray at the hem is very slight but still adds a modern element. The flare is subtle and looks great. I’m wearing my usual size .5. I paired the t-strap sandals with this outfit for a tiny bit of bling. These sandals will dress up any maxi dress this summer, and I can’t wait to wear them with shorts.

Styles For All Occasions: Date Night, Shopping, Or Just Because

An all-white outfit is a classy, classic look. It can be worn almost anywhere, and you will always shine. I’ve worn outfits like this when I’m out shopping, going on a date night with my hubby, or just because I want to feel special.

The Printed Linen Blend Stretch Blazer will definitely make you feel special! It is gorgeous and will look great with more than just white. I can see wearing this blazer with a navy T-shirt and a pair of jeans for an elevated casual look.

In case you were wondering, yes, the pattern extends to the back of the blazer. You’ll look awesome coming and going, which is a good thing since you’ll probably turn a few heads. I’m wearing a size 1, and the blazer fits perfectly.

I have these Wide Leg Cropped Pants in a couple of other colors. This length of pants is great for showing off your shoes and looks great with flats, heels, or sandals. I sized up to a 1 because they are white (I usually do that with white pants), and they fit me great. The pants are also available in navy and black, and for the adventurous souls, you can also grab them in a few bright colors.

    1. Paula, I didn’t get to see the eclipse either, but I’m glad others got to experience it.

  7. All white outfit would wash me out. Cute outfits.

  8. Madge Wienke says:

    Love the column of white with a completer piece. I wore this look once this Spring and got so many compliments!

  9. Mary Carol says:

    It got dark here for a brief few seconds this afternoon. My dogs seemed a bit confused, neighbor’s roosters were crowing and our outdoor vapor light came on. Glad I stayed home to avoid the traffic.
    The white pants outfit is my favorite and looks great on you.

    1. It was too cloudy for me to see anything. I’m glad I got to see it in 2017.

  10. I have a question. In order to qualify for the Amazon gift card, do we have to comment on every post or at least some during that week? The reason I ask is if I don’t like the items in the post, I don’t want to say anything. We all have our own taste. I like to get styling ideas and do find items I like from all the bloggers I follow. There are just times I just don’t want to say anything.

    1. Lol! Terri, there is no way that everyone is going to like all the items in a post. You can comment on one post, or all my posts. All entries count, even if you just say, “I hope you have a great day today!”

  11. I’ve never shopped at Chico’s before. Love all these things! Also love your 2017 eclipse photos— thanks for sharing! 🥰

  12. I love the Chico’s outfits! The basket weave dress is so cute!! The white pants suit is fabulous! Love the white blazer with the detail work on it! Just great!! Thanks for showing us these selections! Great items to wear for special events like a graduation ceremony or Spring Garden Party, or other special gatherings with friends and family!

  13. Stella Gustafson says:

    Love the outfits

  14. We are in the zone of totality here for just under four minutes. The best we can hope for is a break in the clouds and no rain. But we are carrying our lawn chairs and glasses and snacks to a park a 15 minute walk away. I think at the very least, we’ll see it totally dark and then light again in the middle of the day!

    1. It is a special event. So far, it’s not looking very good for me. The sky is completely covered in clouds, and it is only 30 more minutes before the moon is supposed to completely cover the sun.

  15. That basket weave dress is so cute.

  16. Landy Laird says:

    I LOVE Chicos!! These are all so cute!! Love your family photo! Looks like y’all have so much fun!

  17. Beautiful choices from Chicos. Thanks

  18. Ginger Hiller says:

    Here in GA we are expecting a partial eclipse. Unfortunately, I waited too late to order us the proper glasses, so we will just have to focus on our yard. And we will still take precautions with our dog to keep him protected. Tania, you look very nice in all of these outfits.

    1. You can Google other ways to view it safely and see if there is something you can do.

  19. I’m so happy you did this post today! I happen to have a nice reward from Chicos! That watercolor shirt caught my eye! Happy Monday❤❤❤

    1. It is gorgeous! I think you’ll love it.

  20. Those are all so cute. I need to check Chico’s more often. Love the jeans and vest look. I always think white jeans would be a good staple to have but I don’t want a see thru pair. Have you ever compared white jeans/pants for that?

    1. Cecilia, I love the pairs I’ve gotten from Chico’s, Talbots, and J.Jill. I also bought a pair recently that were NYDJ, and they were great.

  21. Linda Shearer says:

    Love Chicos. These are all great outfits. Love the jumpsuit with the overlay but still on the fence about a jumpsuit. I am a different size on top than on bottom.

    1. Linda, the type with a lot of stretch would probably be your best bet.

  22. The hot pink eyelet top is so cute. Love that the sleeves would be so easy to push up to 3/4 length with the smocked cuff. I am seeing eyelet everywhere these days.

  23. I live in Missouri in the direct path of Totality….we have had an influx of approx 40,000 people descend on our fair city. The city held a full 3 day weekend of events leading up to today. Concerts, balloon glow,parades, kids games, food trucks, it has been amazing. Today will be full of excitment. Everyone stay safe, see you on the other side 🙂

    1. That sounds like soooo much fun!

  24. Love the white outfit on you!

  25. I’m hoping i can find something at Chico’s soon for a presentation I will be doing in June for a conference for work.

    1. They have so many nice things in this collection.

  26. Love the Eclipse family photos. You’re so lucky you have such a wonderful family.

  27. Nice shirts to watch the eclipse in.

  28. Love the navy and white check dress and the jeans with white shirt are wonderful too. Chicos has great quality. Happy Monday!

  29. Cute basket weave dress!
