I love Chico's for their smart, stylish, liveable fashion.  Clothes that work with and not against your shape, have smart technology that accomplishes things like keeping you cool, wrinkle-free, and free of stains; and clothes that go from the office to dinner to weekend and do incredibly well on travel.  This season, Chico's has a gorgeous collection called Safari Chic and I asked a few of my stylish friends here in Washington DC to join me in styling our favorite Safari Chic pieces from Chico's! Scroll down to see all of their looks as well!

As soon as I saw this tiger-print dress from the Chico's Safari Chic collection I had to try it.  I've had a lot of luck with Chico's Travelers Collection in the past (check out my Chico's Travelers Capsule Wardrobe).  It's the kind of fabric that can dress up and down, is stretchy without clinging, takes up no space in a suitcase, is wrinkle-resistant, and machine washable.  This dress does not disappoint.  Without the belt, it is more of a shift (I chose a size 2 which in Chico's sizing is a 12/14) but not in a boxy way, more like an, “I skim the bust and hips and go right past that tummy” sort of way.  If I didn't wear the belt, I'd likely have my tailor shorten it right to the knee.  However, I really loved the effect of the dress with my black heeled knee-high boots and Chico's Reversible Obi Belt

To finish off the look, I chose some of Chico's iconic jewelry.  They make some of the best costume jewelry; I have pieces a decade old that still look like new.  Unfortunately, the pieces I am wearing are sold out; a good example to get their jewelry while you can for it sells out quickly!  I also have these hoops and wear them all the time; this bracelet has a similar finish to the one I am wearing.  Above I made a carousel of my favorite jewelry currently available at Chico's!

My friends also picked some fabulous pieces from the Chico's Safari Chic collection.  From left to right this is Tanvi, Angelica, myself, and Sylvia.  Sylvia thought Wild Days, the rooftop bar and music venue at Eaton House on K Street in Washington DC would be the perfect place for the photoshoot.  I thank her for coordinating this shoot before the venue was open.  The plants and all the wood and wicker really brought out the vibe of the fashion.  Thank you to Alex Moonrise who was the photographer; it was my first time working with him and he was so nice and had a great eye.

  1. You look fabulous in that dress styled with the belt and boots! I agree with the comment that you should be the Chico’s model for that dress!

  2. I haven’t commented in awhile, but how you look in that tiger stripe dress propelled me to do so. Chico’s should have you as the model picture on their website. You look ‘mav-a-lus’ as Billy Crystal on SNL would say.

  3. My god ladies, y’all are on ! I’ll take your entire outfit, Alison. And yes, I spy those old favorite boots of yours. I just replaced my 20-yr-old boots and I’m ready to dress up the new ones!

  4. I’ve always given Chico’s a pass because “their” look isn’t “my” look.

    But you & your friends with your four different looks have shown that whatever your style, you can find something for it at Chico’s. Thank you!

    1. I think Chico’s is one of those brands that is what you make of it. LIke Talbots, Universal Standard, Modcloth, they have a very specific aesthetic they promote in their marketing but their clothes are actually quite versatile and can work with a lot of personal styles. I also think Chico’s is stepping up their style game as of late!

  5. I love the belt so much. What makes it reversible? I went to the Chico’s website and saw it says “reversible” but it appears to be the same color on both sides. Thanks so much!

  6. I love everything about this post! You look fabulous; your friends look fabulous. But there is so much more to it than just how great you all look. That group photo features four different women, all uniquely made, all fantastic in their own way.l, all wearing the same brand. Yay for inclusive fashion!

  7. I haven’t even read the post yet, but I opened my email and there you were. You look like a million bucks in that dress, and better yet, you look like you know it.
