An Amazing In Home Try On Haul With Chico’s

It has been way too long since I styled clothing from Chico’s. Recently, I looked through this past year’s analytics to see what retailers were your favorites. Chico’s was in the top five, so I placed an order, and I loved all the items. So, here is an AMAZING in home try on haul with Chico’s, and I can’t wait to hear if you like everything as much as I do.

I like a poncho, but only if they have sleeves. I don’t like it when they are just like a blanket with a hole cut out for your head. Lol!

This sweater poncho is stretchy and comfortable, and I love that it doesn’t touch me in the stomach area. That is where I hold my weight, and this hides my lumps and bumps. Plus, it looks stylish at the same time.

Details are what make an outfit. The ball chain trim on the shoulders and side slits elevates this poncho and makes it stand out from others. Because the side slits are high, I would suggest wearing a tank or tee under the poncho to keep out any drafts.

I couldn’t wait to show you the earrings I got for Christmas. Joe used to buy me bracelets, but a housekeeper decided to relieve me of those years ago. 🙄 I still like getting jewelry for Christmas since it rarely goes out of style, and I don’t usually outgrow it. Lol!

This outfit is so sharp in person! Although this outfit looks fine, I would probably wear the vest with jeans and not pair it with the pullover sweater.

I LOVE this vest! It is heavier than I imagined it would be, and the color is amazing. The color reminds me of pewter, but they are calling it stormy sky. The vest is of great quality, and I love that the side panels are a knit material, so it stretches and moves with you.

You can see the side panels here and how plush the quilted faux leather looks.

The back of the vest is faux leather, and I like the length, which hits at my hips.

It wouldn’t be a try-on haul without a dressy outfit. I love both of these pieces, and they can be worn in so many ways for lots of occasions.

This lightweight knit pullover sweater is comfortable to wear, and I am obsessed with the satin-style sleeves. They add lots of visual interest and turn a black top from blah or WOW! This top will dress up anything you pair with it, and I bet it would look fabulous with a pair of jeans.

Let’s talk about these Ponte flare pants!!! Wowzer! I am not kidding when I say these fit and feel incredible. I know that red might be out of some of your comfort zones, but they are also available in camel and black. But, just so you know, the red pair is on sale for $49.99.

They also have these cute sailor-style buttons on the side, which really dress up the pants. The material is premium Ponte, and it feels luxurious. These Ponte pants look to be wrinkle-free and will last you for years.

I love adding accessories to my outfits, and scarves are an affordable way to add interest. They also can serve a purpose like keeping your neck and chest warm or protecting your hair from a light rain shower.

Faux leather is everywhere! It is a great alternative to real leather, and it is usually lightweight in comparison. When faux leather first hit the fashion scene, it was plastic-looking and not very fashionable. All that is in the past, and the faux leather items of today are very realistic looking.

I love the longer length of the topper, but it is the cutwork designs on the chest and sleeves that give this coat its WOW factor. I’m wearing a size 1, which fits great. The black is limited in some sizes, but there is a wine color that has more availability. The coat is on sale for 55% off, so it is a great time to grab it while it lasts.

Chico’s Semi-Annual Sale

As soon as Christmas day rolls around, the sales start rolling in. Here are some of my favorite picks that are on sale.

19.99 Select Styles

If you have someone (maybe, you) who loves jewelry and accessories, this is your sale. These items make great Christmas gifts (Next year’s shopping will be done early). I love this Onyx necklace, and this pair of black leather gloves with faux pearls are gorgeous. The infinite beaded necklace is stunning, and it can be worn long or short. There is so much to choose from in this category!

If you love watches, this Tort Watch, a brown leather rectangle face, and a black round face watch are all on sale for $29.99.

In the $39.99 category, I found this gorgeous Abstract Print Tie-Front Shirt, which is a show stopper. The Merlot Zenergy Velour Half Zip Pullover and matching pants would make a great lounging outfit.

The Rib Trim Quilted Vest in red would look great with jeans this winter. I love the gold hardware on it. If you’re a fan of the girlfriend-style jeans, check out these in the color Clyde Road Indigo.

  5. the vest caught my attention. very pretty.

  6. Did you announce a winner last week? I don’t think I saw it Sunday. I guess it doesn’t matter since I didn’t win.

    1. Yes, it was Meg Anderson.

  7. sue koren says:

    Glad you had a day to relax!

  8. Those red pants do make a statement and I like the way you styed it with the back jacket and scarf. Chico’s clothes do last forever. Congrats on scoring those gorgeous earrings!

  9. Love both outfits and the red pant outfit would be great for going out for Valentine’s too! I was going to ask if Joe actually picked out those earrings for you, but I saw my answer in the comments. Just as I suspected! LOL

    1. Lol! You know me well.

  10. I love the faux leather vest. I had a gold metallic one years ago from Chico’s that I loved. We also spent Christmas alone. I agree, just not the same.

  11. I love the scarf. I received a gift card from Chico’s, will have to make a visit soon.

  12. Love the red pants. So very pretty.

  13. Love everything and it all looks amazing on you! Happy new year!

  14. Ginger Hiller says:

    I agree that Chico’s has some beautiful items. As a GA native and a UGA football fan, I really appreciate and like the red and black ensemble you put together. It is eye catching for sure.

  15. Love Talbots and Chico’s semi-annual sales! You can get amazing deals on great clothing items!

  20. Laura Garrett says:

    My favorite today is the silver vest and red ponte pants. These are things I’d wear all winter long. Thanks!

  21. Merry day after Christmas Tania! Chico’s has always had a great selection and well made clothing. I love that pewter vest and it really looks good on you. But those earrings that Joe got for you are beautiful. He’s a keeper!

    1. The vest is gorgeous. The earrings are so nice and I love the size of them. But, Joe didn’t pick them out or buy them for me. 🤣 I ordered them myself, that’s how you get what you want. 😂🤪🤗

    2. Julia Cliatt says:

      Thank you for all the good advice throughout the year!

  22. I am realizing how accessories can elevate the outfit. This year I invested in a few pretty scarves and have worn them often this season. Next on my list is some simple necklaces and bracelets. How awful to lose your bracelets in such a horrible way!

    1. They took everything that was gold, but left all the white gold because they thought it was silver.

  23. Marci Hutchison says:
