How much do you wear belts? My guess is only when your pants need assistance staying on your tush. Your winter wardrobe this year is dependent on them! Belts, that is. You can build your outfit around them and use them to accessorize! You can also use them to shape your clothes to your body. Bold belts can transform a simple ensemble into a stylish outfit. Here are 3 ways to use belts in your wardrobe this winter!

  1. Double-sided buckle: I LOOOVE this trend. It is a fun, unique, Western version of your everyday belt. It has two buckles! My favorite way to wear this belt is to pair it with some black distressed jeans and a loose blouse that I can tuck into the front of my jeans to showcase the belt.e9f97e2d2b26910e30cd6e8cf5104abb
  2. Classic: You can’t go wrong with a simple leather belt. These babies go with pretty much anything. This season, I am wearing mine mostly with dark jeans and a light colored shirt for some cute contrast.
  3. Printed: This last option is the simplest of all. Wear a patterned belt, like leopard print, with a simple shirt and jeans for a simple but sassy outfit. If you want to wear a simple neutral sweater with jeans, wearing a printed belt takes your outfit to the next level.

Belt it up!

My Top 3 Favorite Vests This Fall

Vests are a great fall fashion staple. They are great to wear on chilly days when a coat isn’t necessary but you still need a little something to keep you warm. Plus, vests are the ultimate layering piece. There are so many different styles of vests out there this season, so I thought I would round up my top 3 and give you some styling tips with each!

  1. Front-fold vest: This style of vest is pretty new and I am loving it. The inside of the vest folds outward, giving a more layered and dimensional look. This vest is a great casual piece that looks awesome layered with plaid or a solid neutral color.83c6f05b7d84cddc243427512b1e1f56
  2. Faux fur vest: I love these vests because of how versatile they are. You can pair them with a patterned or solid shirt and with pretty much whatever color of pants you want! It can also be dressed up or dressed down depending on the situation.
  3. Quilted: This is the most popular type of vest. These are an awesome addition to your everyday fall wardrobe. They are comfy and cozy and casual. Pair with a simple button up and riding boots for a cute casual outfit, or layer over a sporty hoodie for a sporty look.

What is your favorite vest to wear this fall?

When winter starts to roll in, there are certain things to do to prepare your closet for the cold weather ahead.  I always make sure my wardrobe is ready for the season, whether it be summer or winter.  Make sure you check these essentials off your list so you can be ready, too! 

  • Change your closet from warm to cold.  My closet used to get extremely cluttered with all of my summer and winter clothes stuffed together.  Switch out all of your shorts and sandals for pants and booties!Chelsea Crockett - Winter Outift
  • Purchase a neutral, warm coat that will go with a majority of your outfits.  Finding a coat that is both stylish and keeps you warm is key for the cold weather!
  • Also, purchase a good pair of snow/rain boots.  Especially if you’re in college, walking to class in the snow without a good pair of boots will be awful!
  • Know how to layer.  When it comes to looking stylish in the winter, layering up with different shirts and jackets is a necessity.  I sometimes find it hard to find a cute outfit to wear and be warm at the same time.  Knowing how to layer like a pro is the perfect way to achieve this!
  • Purchase the perfect winter accessories that go with your style.  Accessories such as beanies, scarves, high socks, tights, etc. are the best way to spice up your outfit and make your outfit warmer at the same time!  You get the best of both worlds, right?  

I hope you’re all prepared for an awesome winter ahead!

How to Style Black on Black This Fall

I think wearing black on black is so chic and sophistocated. But, there is a difference between wearing all black and looking sophistocated and wearing all black and looking overly grungy. We want to lean more towards classy and chic, so here are a few ways to do just that!

  1. Play with shades: There are different shades of black. When I say that, I mean there is lighter blacks that are more dark gray-ish and then there are pitch blacks. My advice is to play with different shades of black and dark gray in an outfit to add dimension and break up the black.f38aae0339472b8db4a38cf381077481
  2. Work with patterns: Wear black ripped jeans with a quilted black leather jacket and plain black or dark gray tee. The different patterns and textures of the pieces will keep things interesting and distract from the solomness of the dark shade. You can also wear black tops with white trim or patterns to add some accent!
  3. Go bold: This look is for the girl that knows wearing all black is an art and takes planning, and she embraces it. Like I said earlier, there is a fine line between looking sophistocated and going too overboard with wearing all black. In this outfit we go bold and we pair plain black skinnies with a classic leather biker jacket and black booties. We can even toss in a black handbag with silver zippers and snaps, so that the accents on the handbag accentuate the oufit. The silver accents on the buckles of the boots and the snaps on the jacket and handbag help break up the black.

Remember to keep things classy and chic when planning an all black ensemble. Be bold, and be brave when making fashion choices! J

How To Style Winter Whites

You know the phrase “you can’t wear white after Labor Day”? Throw that rule out the window. It is always a good day to wear white! There are so many great ways to style white that don’t require the weather to be spring or summer. From sweaters to jeans to handbags and dresses, you name it, you can wear it in white. As long as you incorporate other elements that match the outside temps, like a scarf or layers, then you are good to go. Here are 4 ways to rock winter whites.

  1. Bell-sleeve dress: I love the bohemian/retro look of bell-sleeve dresses. Because they are long-sleeved, you can wear them in the chilly weather when paired with some booties. You could even pull on a pair of nylon tights and a vest if you want to add some extra warmth to the ensemble. autumn-hippie-bell-sleeve-dress-free-femininos-people-white-embroidery-vintage-long-maxi-dresses-women-boho
  2. White handbag: White handbags look so fresh and clean. They add a clean pop of style to any ensemble, and they go with everything!i_216655328_01_20150226
  3. Distressed white jeans: The great thing about white jeans is that you can them year-round. I also love all of the outfit possibilities they bring! Plus, when you add in the distressed look, you add a little extra dimensions You can wear them with an army jacket and black booties for an edgy look, or if you want to keep it simple, pair them with a loose neutral-colored oversized sweater and brown leather booties.winter_white3
  4. White sweater: White sweaters come in all shapes and sizes. You can layer them or wear them by themselves. I love a crisp white cardigan because they are totally versatile, and I love an oversized white sweater that goes with almost any color of pants.eb80c430f7c013fe29312c0b5702fc90

How will you be wearing your winter whites?

There has been a recent trend of new businesses and companies sending out monthly boxes filled with sample products and goodies.  Companies such as Faithbox and FabFitFun are two examples of trendy businesses that use their packages to get the word out for certain products.  Stitch Fix is a company similar to this that was recently brought to my attention!

The main point of these boxes is to find things that match your personal style and have fun while doing it!  Here’s how it works.  First, you take a short style quiz to figure out which accessories and pieces of clothing you’ll like best.  Stitch Fix ships the box with 5 either accessories or pieces of clothing right to your door!  Everything sent to you revolves around your style and budget.  You may be thinking “how can I afford this?”  The best part about this is you only pay for what you want to keep and send back what you don’t!  That way you can test out what fits your style and what doesn’t.  It’s like your own personal stylist!Chelsea Crockett - Stitch Fix Box

As far as when you receive each box, you can choose to get them regularly or whenever you please!  After each box, you can give feedback so your next box is even more personalized to what you like.  There is a $20 styling fee but is only added in to your final order!  Another plus is that each item you receive is fairly priced and something not everyone is going to have.  And if you like all 5 items, you get a 25% discount!

Try it out and let me know what you think! 🙂

Converse shoes are coming back with a bang! I see them everywhere, and I love it. I love their retro flare. In the summer time girls we wear Converse with jean cutoff shorts and t-shirts, but in the cooler fall temps the outfits transition just like the weather! Here are my favorite ways to wear Converse shoes in the fall.

  1. Comfy cozy: For a chilly day at school, wear a pair of dark jeans, a cozy over-sized sweater, and some white Converse. It doesn’t get any cozier than that8772f6dff43b5c7de4a1fa53354b7114
  2. Edgy: Pair some leather leggings and white hi-top Converse with a white tee and army jacket for an edgy outfit.
  3. Cute and casual: A great everyday outfit is converse with ripped jeans and a white tee layered with a chunky long cardigan! This is a great outfit for school or running out and about.

Converse can be worn so many more ways, they are just so versatile and timeless! What is YOUR favorite way to wear them when the weather gets cool?

As it gets cooler outside, working out in the great outdoors becomes easier. During the summer I can barely stand to be outside more than 20 minutes, let alone exercising outside! One plus to cooler weather is that you get to wear adorable warm workout gear! Here are my chilly weather workout essentials.

  1. Cute thermal leggings: When I run outside in the fall and winter I have to make sure my legs stay warm. Even walking to the gym from my car is chilly! So, that is where adorable workout leggings come in. There are so many cool patterns and styles out there, and they come in a variety of lengths for whatever the weather requires!fullsizerender-58
  2. A cute workout hoodie: I love thin workout jackets that are still warm but do not weigh you down. If you are on a run or doing an outdoor workout, a lightweight hoodie is a must. You can easily take it off if you get warm and wrap it around your waist, but it is always a good idea to overdress in case it is cooler than you think out there!
  3. Adorable ear warmers: Some people may think wearing ear warmers makes them look silly, but they just haven’t found the right pair! Keeping your head warm will ensure the rest of your body stays warm, so keep those ears nice and cozy. Plus, they keep your hair out of your face!

I love cold weather workout gear, don’t you? Sometimes I wear it to school even when I am not going to work out. It is just too cozy to pass up! 😉

XOXO, Chels

Lauren Conrad is one of the biggest fashion bloggers of our time.  She’s an icon in all things fashion and beauty!  If you don’t know who she is, you may recognize her from the shows Laguna Beach and The Hills.  She has certain style secrets that she swears by that I think we can all learn a little from!

  • Keep things simple!  You don’t have to go above and beyond to make a fashion statement.Chelsea Crockett - Lauren Conrad  Keeping things sleek and classy isn’t a bad thing. (That being said, your style is how you want to dress so if keeping it simple isn’t your thing, then you do you!) 
  • Try rocking winged eyeliner.  I was always a little hesitant with winged eyeliner but now I love it!  Trying out a little wing doesn’t hurt!
  • Skinny jeans and loose blouses.  Like the picture on the right, Lauren always rocks a simple pair of jeans and a loose shirt.  Pairing it with simple accessories and a killer pair of wedges seals the look!
  • Rock a blazer.  Blazers can make an outfit go from boring to fashionable.  It’s definitely a staple piece, so if you don’t own one you should!
  • Mix style with comfort.  If you’re not comfortable in your outfit, then what’s the point?  Buy yourself a super comfy pair of jeans or a pair of wedges that fit just right.

Try these tips out from the style queen herself!

Fringe is one of my favorite fall fashion statements! It is so fun and flirty. I love subtly working fringe into my fall outfits. There are so many ways to wear it. Here are a few essential fringe pieces for your fall wardrobe!

  1. Fringe jacket/sweater: I love fringe outerwear. If it has subtle fringe, it is an A+ in my book. Too much fringe is too overwhelming, but a little as an accent is perfect! Wear some statement jewelry like a watch and bangles for accessories, and layer a simple tee under your fringe to keep things simple.
  2. Fringe booties: Wearing fringe booties with a simple outfit takes it to the next level! Use your booties as the statement piece of the outfit, or
    wear some fringe jewelry to play on the fringe accents on your boots.x354-q80
  3. Fringe satchel/handbag: This is another sweet accent piece. A simple fall ensemble with a fringe purse is the perfect pair! Make sure you keep your outfit simple if you are wearing fringe accents, though, to ensure you don’t have too much going on. Simple = safe!

How will YOU wear fringe this fall?

Outfits For When You Feel Like You Have Nothing to Wear

One of the best things about shopping is finding an item that makes you feel so confident and that you totally love. The bad thing about it is that after a little while, that same item of clothing can become “meh” to you. It doesn’t matter how much you loved the item when you bought it, it is inevitable that over time it will lose its appeal. We all know the feeling of looking into our closet and thinking “I have NOTHING to wear…!”, and it isn’t that we literally have nothing to wear, it is that we got bored with our options. When that feeling hits, it is good to have a few go-to outfits to turn to when everything else feels “blah.” Here are a few no-fail looks for when this happens!

  1. White on white: I love to play with color in my outfits, but sometimes going bold isn’t what you are feeling. Opt for an all-white outfit if you are feeling like you are out of options. It is a nice alternative to all-black, and you are totally okay to toss the “no white after labor day” rule out the door. Some good white combos are white skinny jeans with an over-sized white or cream sweater, or the always-trendy skinny jeans and a white tee.8233211788949221_awdrklyr_f
  2. Rolled jeans and booties: This is a great fall outfit. Cuff the hem of your favorite jeans paired with low-heal booties and wear an oxford shirt, sweater, or create a layered look with a vest or cardigan. This is an effortlessly casual and easy look to toss together.
  3. Skinny jeans and a textured shirt: This look is all about contrast. Jeans may feel too casual for certain settings, but if you pair them with a dressier shirt or blouse with texture like ruffles or fringe then your jeans will automatically look more dressed-up. You could even pair a silk blouse with a nice pair of jeans and booties for a dressier ensemble. Jeans can easily be dressed up or down.

Another quick fix for the “I have nothing to wear” blues is to look up outfit inspiration on Pinterest and focus on photos of people wearing items that you have in your closet. This will help give you ideas on new ways to wear and pair the clothes you already have!

Watches are a classic statement piece. They add a timeless touch to any outfit, plus, they make sure you are on time! 😉  They are also stack-able, meaning you can wear other bracelets with them and stack them to create a more interesting, layered look. Today we will discuss the 3 watches every girl needs in her wardrobe. Each is unique and adds its own special flare to any outfit it accents! Plus these can be worn year round because they are so versatile.

  1. The classic: Every girl needs one watch that goes with evvvverything. These watches can be worn to school,watch-2 to work, and then out with friends even when you have changed your outfit 3 different times! It is versatile and classic. I love watches with leather bands because they look classy and match virtually anything.
  2. The statement: A statement watch can be the focal point of your whole outfit! I love watches that have cool faces, like watches with maps or glitter as their face.
  3. The unique: If you want to add dimension to your outfit, you need a wraparound watch. The strap wraps around your wrist a few times which gives it a unique look. I love this look because it is a little edgy! I would wear it with an over-sized neutral sweater or a military jacket and some ripped up black skinny jeans.

What kind of watches make up YOUR wardrobe? Comment below which one of these three is your fav!

One of my favorite things about high school was going all out for our Friday night football games.  Some of my best memories of my four years were made at our school’s stadium cheering on the team!  Chelsea Crockett - Game Day OutfitWith college, the football game days only get bigger and better, especially if you go to a big school.  Here is a little guide I put together if you need some help picking out an outfit for your next game day!

One of my favorite things that I’ve seen girls wear on game day is oversized jerseys.  I know some schools sell them in a dress style to pair with accessories and booties!  If your jersey isn’t long enough to style as a dress, rock it with a ripped pair of white jeans like the picture on the left.  You can also determine how casual you want to be by wearing wedged booties or a pair of sneakers! 

Incorporating your team’s colors into your outfit is obviously a must.  Although some colleges dress up more than others, you can always accessorize using colored necklaces, hats, etc.  Since suede is big this fall, pairing an off-the-shoulder shirt with a button- up suede skirt is so cute!  Another piece of clothing you can pair your outfit with is a flannel in your school’s colors.  You can either substitute it for a jacket or tie it around your waste!

I hope you enjoy this year’s football season!

Usually when I think of cold weather fashion I think of shades like white, grey, brown and black and muted, darker tones. After the fall colors fade away and the winter the skies are gray, and if you don’t like the cold, your mood is gray as well! One way to drown out the late fall/winter blues is to add color to youimagesr wardrobe. Here are a few ways to add colors back into your ensembles.

  1. Coats: Who says coats have to be neutral colors all of the time? Not me! I love to wear a statement coat, such as my red pea coat, to work some color back into my outfits!
  2. Scarves: Scarves are a great way to spice up your outfit. Wear a statement scarf with a solid shirt to add some dimension.
  3. Hats: I love wearing hats in the fall and winter, and if you follow me on Instagram you totally know what I am talking about! They are a great way to stay warm and look cute at the same time.
  4. Handbags: By adding in a colored handbag to your outfit you can effortlessly slide in some color.
  5. Sweaters: Colored sweaters… a total yes! I have a coral colored sweater that I just love, and I wear it with dark jeans and riding boots for an easy, comfy chilly weather outfit!

How are YOU adding color into your cold-weather wardrobe?

Fall 2016 Hair Color Trends

You have spent all summer growing your luscious locks out into mermaid waves, and now that fall is here, you may feel like you need a change but don’t want to give your locks a major chop. One way to do that is to change your hair’s color! Fall is a great time to a new color on your strands because you won’t have to worry about the sun changing or altering the color. Here are the hottest hair color trends this fall.

  • Cool brunette: If you have olive or cooler skin tone then this shade is perfect for you! This color is a great transition from your sun-bleached hair to a darker more “fall” look.

73465d6d9da4bbe87b19dc3bc3cdc838

  • Wheat blond: This is a more natural neutral blond that includes tones of gold and beige. This hue looks good on pretty much anyone! It is a soft look due to the subtle highlights, so if you like subtle, this is a great look!

wheat-blonde

  • Exposed roots: This look is so in! It is pretty much letting your natural roots show in the most chic way possible. It takes the edge off of your roots and blends them in. This look is for everyone! It really just depends on your taste and how much or how little you want your roots to be showing. This is also an easy way to transition if you want to leave more time in between touch-ups.

26ebf913fe6d2b568db6a76cea6260ac

  • Bronde: This trend is here to stay! It is a nice happy medium between blonde and brunette… just right! This color works best for light brown to dark brown hair types and people with warm skin tones.

When you think of peplum style tops, you probably think of summer and spring because they are flowy and light. But, fall is also a great time for peplum tops. Here are my favorite ways to style these fun, cute tops during the cold fall weather!

  1. Cozy and casual: I love cozy tops like this. They are tight at the top and then flare out at the bottom, so they show your curves while still being loose and cozy. You can wear this cozy top with jeans or leggings for a comfy cold-weather outfit.ec18ed85cf1bd9e031c7a424fbcf8633
  2. Pretty and plaid: Fall is all about plaid! I love the combo of plaid and peplum because it is a more feminine flare on your typical plaid button-up shirt. Paired with some dark jeans and nude booties, it is the perfect fall outfit! Id wear this anywhere from the pumplin patch to out to a casual dinner out.
  3. Whistful and fun: This is a more trendy look at your fall peplum style! Bell-sleve shirts are really in, and this sort of shirt is “hippie-chic.” I love how it is paired with lace-up flats and distressed skinny jeans. I think this is a great everyday look for the fashion lover in all of us!

Have fun playing up your feminie side with peplum shirts this fall!

XOXO, Chels
