Do you ever roll out of bed, throw on a sweatshirt with a pair of sweatpants and run out the door?  It’s such an easy outfit and super comfortable.  So what about those days you feel like wearing your favorite hoodie or sweatshirt, but still want to look nice?  I’ll show you a few simple ways to style an ordinary hoodie and make it extraordinary!   Chelsea Crockett- sweatshirt and button up

Vintage hoodies are the greatest.  Ask your parents if they have a sweatshirt from their collage days that you could style.  It’s no problem if they are over-sized!  For a simpler look, throw on an over-sized sweatshirt, a pair of leggings, leather boots, and an infinity scarf.  It’s a cozy look, but the boots make it look dressier.  For a dressier look, try wearing a button up shirt under your crew neck sweatshirt and pull the sleeves and collar through the openings.  Roll the sleeves of the shirt and crew neck, throw on a pair of skinny jeans and flats, and add a little bling like a chunky necklace for the final touch.  This look is so classy, yet comfortable.

If you have a solid or subtle colored crew neck, one with little print, try pairing it with some crazy prints.  Don’t be afraid to wear a pair of floral skinny jeans or a polka dot mini skirt. This is definitely the girly way to style a crew neck.  Next time you go to put on a sweatshirt, don’t just go for a pair of sweatpants.  Be a fashionista and turn heads with your creative styling!

Love,

Chelsea

I wish I was brave enough to get bangs. I mean, they are such a huge commitment! What happens if you don’t like them?! Then you have to wait foreeeeever for them to grow back out! Well, here is a little guide to which bangs are right for your face shape so you can avoid any awkward bang experiences!long-bangs-hairstyles-2012-1

  1. Square face shape: If you are a lovely lady with a very defined jaw line, then eye-grazing fringe bangs are just for you!
  2. Heart shaped face: I have this shape! According to the experts, side sweep bangs are what us heart-shape faced ladies should go for!
  3. Round shaped face: Whispy bangs are just right for your face shape!
  4. Oval face shape: You lucky ducky! You can pull off all three of the styles above! I envy you!

Have you ever looked at someone and been inspired by their style?  Well what if you became the one inspiring others?!  Being a style standout is an extremely honorable role!  This means you’re daring with your style and wear things others wouldn’t.  It also takes a lot of creativity!  If you want to be a style standout, follow a few of my style tips in order to be at the top of the fashion world!Chelsea Crockett- studded flats

Don’t be afraid to wear color and prints!  Black, brown, and grey can get boring so styling yourself with brighter clothes!  Try adding fun accessories like a striped purse or pink earrings.  A little color never hurt!  Another great way to add to your signature style is through your shoe choice.  Throw on a fun pair of sneakers or stylish wedges to a simple outfit if you don’t have time to get ready.  Never be afraid to be bold.  Always experiment with your style and go out of the box.  It’s important not to care too much about what others think of you!

Invest your money in your most valuable pieces!  Purses and shoes are always a great investment…you can never grow out of them.  Save up for that purse you’ve been dying to have.  Most designer purses are timeless, so it’s okay to splurge!  Plus, everyone will be dying to get their hands on it!  Another way to be a style standout is to layer!  Instead of just wearing a sweater, throw on a scarf or wear a button up under it.  An over-sized coat is always a great addition as well!  Be bold, be exciting, and be out there with your style!

I’m sure your closet is bursting with skinny and flare jeans.  They’ve always been the perfect jean to throw on with just about anything; but did you know that a new type of jean has emerged?  Called the boyfriend or slouchy jean, it is perfect for casual lazy days.  With their roomy feel and distressed look, they could really be called dressier sweatpants!  I’ll show you a few great ways to style your new jeans!Chelsea Crockett- boyfriend jean

Don’t be surprised if your boyfriend jeans feel weird the first time you put them on, especially if you’re used to skinny jeans.  My favorite way to rock boyfriend jeans is with a rolled cuff.  This gives your pants a slimmer affect since they are tight at the ankles.  This way, your legs won’t look frumpy!  Pair your jeans with a fun colored belt and style them with a tight-fitting sweater tucked in and crazy accessories.  This will give your jeans a more upscale girly look.  Another great top to pair with boyfriend jeans is a crop top.  This look is perfect for a concert or a night out with friends.  It’s super casual with that edgy flare.  My favorite shoes to pair with slouchy jeans are flats or heels.  You want to wear shoes that have more of a dramatic effect other than sandals.  The more sparkle, the better.  Since your new jeans have a masculine feel to them, you want to make sure to wear girly tops, accessories, and shoes.  Have fun with this and try out lots of different looks!

Love,

Chels

Believe it or not, homecoming is just around the corner! You’ve got a lot of preparation to get to! There are so many things to think about: the dress, the group your going with, your DATE, where your going to take pictures…the last thing you want to be worrying about is your hair! I am here to help you pick out your perfect homecoming hair style, because you’ve got enough to worry about as it is!

  1. Heart shaped face: Ladies with this face shape have a broad forehead and then their face starts to taper from the cheeks photo (7)and jaw line down to the chin. I have this face shape! Since the lower part of the face is narrower compared to the upper portion, you want to draw attention to the lower part of the face. The best hair-do to help you achieve this goal is the half-up half-down look. Curl all of your hair and then pull the upper part towards the crown back while the rest falls gently around your shoulders.
  2. Round face: For my round faced babes, your goal should be to take attention away from the cheeks and ears. This will make your face not look wider than it really is! One way to do this is to draw attention up and elongate your face. A hair style that helps you do this is an intricate bun or sleek high pony tail. Never under estimate the impact of a strategically placed pony tail.
  3. Narrow or oval face: You lucky ducks have it made. The shape of your face is ideal because the proportions are just right. Truth is, you can do just about anything to your hair. The updoo that will highlight your beautifully shaped face is to pull all of your hair back into a bun. You can leave some loose wispy hairs down to give you a more wistful look if you prefer.

I hope this helps you choose which homecoming hair style is right for you! I am sure you will look gorgeous no matter what style you choose.

XOXO, Chels

Hi Girls!

            It’s about that time again, a time to get dressed up, hangout with your friends, and dance the night away.  It’s homecoming!!  Now, I’m sure you’re used to all the fashion advice that surrounds homecoming, but what about all the other homecoming advice that’s out there?!  I’m going to break down the dos and don’ts of homecoming 2013!Chelsea Crockett- homecoming banner

  • Do: Go with your girlfriends and closet friends!
  • Don’t: Don’t be obsessed about a guy asking you to go to homecoming.  Just have fun with your friends and being YOU!
  • Do: Be simple!  Have everyone over to one of your friends’ houses to take pictures!  This way, everyone can hangout for a little bit before and after.
  • Don’t:  There’s no need to go to the city or a fancy place to take pictures for homecoming, it’s not prom!
  • Do: Carpool to the dance!
  • Don’t:  Renting a limo or party bus for homecoming can be expensive!  Save that expense for prom.
  • Do: Wear a dress that shows off your personality.
  • Don’t: Make sure you don’t look like you’re going to the club!
  • Do: Wear comfy shoes.  Try to pick a shorter heel.
  • Don’t:  You won’t be able to move on the dance floor in 7 inch stilettos!

Another fun thing to do for homecoming is have a potluck!  Have everyone bring their favorite appetizer, entrée, or dessert and set it out for everyone to enjoy.  It’ll save lots of money and you’ll be able to visit with your friends in a more relaxed setting.  You also don’t have to worry about making those pesky dinner reservation. Have a great time at your dance!  It’s a time to remember so take lots of pictures!

Have fun,

Chelsea

How to Rock Old School Styles!

Hi Girls,

            Have you ever looked through magazines or watched a movie from the 60’s or 70’s and thought “Hmmmm I wear that now?”  Well, that’s because trends are ever-changing.  Clothes and hairstyles that your mom or grandma used to wear are making a comeback!  Crazy, right?  So how do you pull of these dated styles in the new millennium?  Here are a few tricks and tips to rock that old school style.Chelsea Crockett- winged eyeliner

            Winged eyeliner has been one of the biggest makeup staples throughout every generation.  It’s such a classic look, but is often applied wrong.  Start by using liquid eyeliner.  Apply your top eyeliner as you normally would, a thin straight line.  At the end of your eye, go over the line multiple times with the liner.  Keep doing this until you have achieved the thickness that you like.  Don’t go overboard though!  Another makeup trend making its way back is red lipstick.  Celebs like Taylor Swift have made red lipstick the new “it” look.  Be daring a pair it with your normal everyday outfit.  This bold color takes any look to the next level.  Try a darker red for the winter and a lighter or orange red for the warmer months.  It’s such a classic!

Believe it or not, peplums and high-waisted shorts/pants have made the ultimate comeback.  Ask your mom, I bet she wore them in the 80’s!  They are two of today’s biggest trends.  Wear your peplum with a pair of skinny’s or a pencil skirt.  The ruffle adds a girly touch to almost anything!  Try out your high-waisted shorts with a crop top or tucked in concert tee.  You’ll really be channeling the 80’s!  Take a look back at old pictures, magazines, and movies.  You may pick up on an old style trend that you can start back up again.  Be a trend setter!

Another love of mine is online shopping. How awesome is it that I don’t have to get off my couch to shop till I drop? Today I am going to tell you my favorite online shopping sites, and the pros and cons of each.

161

Sammydress.com

  • Pro: This website seriously has everything. You can find everything from phone cases, to shoes, to the cutest sundresses you will ever find. They have an amazing selection of everything, and it is all so cheap! Their jewelry starts at $1.00 and goes to about $4.00. Their shirts are super cheap too! Most of them are between $4-8.
  • Con: The shipping! Because they are located in China, the shipping is not cheap and it takes a long time for your package to arrive.

151

Urbanog.com

  • Pro: They have such adorable stuff! I mostly go there for the shoes, but they also have a pretty awesome selection of clothes. But more on the shoes, I have bought three pairs from them already, and I plan purchasing more soon! They have an incredible selection of boots, sandals , flats, pumps, any kind of shoe you can think of even combat boots! Their shipping was speedy and the shoes are great quality. Every day they have a different pair of shoes featured in the “Deal of the Day” where they give you an amazing deal on the pair featured. They are always a super cute pair. I want them all!
  • Con: Sometimes my size of shoe is out of stock and that makes me sad.

Forever-21-Logo2

Forever21.com

  • Pro: Everyone loves Forever21 right? Their clothes are so cute and their style is right on target. Also, the prices cannot be beat! Sometimes they carry items on the website that are not available in stores, which is also pretty cool. I like to check out the clearance section, because there are always unbeatable sales there too.
  • Con: Because the prices are so low, that can mean that some of their items are not of the best quality, but you get what you pay for! Not all of the items are low quality, but you just have to watch out for it. Also, the online selection could be beefed up a bit, but other than that I love the site!

Go check these sites out! You never know what you will find. Happy shopping!

Love,

Have you seen any of these skirts floating around lately? I am absolutely in love with them! In this post I am going to tell you where you can buy one and how to style them!

Where to buy them:

You can buy them on sites like modcloth.com or even ebay! I was able to find some super cute, affordable ones on gojane.com. Some people even make their own! For those crafty few, there are some great blogs and YouTube videos that tell you exactly how to do it. You can buy cheap tulle at Walmart!

How to style them:

It really depends on your personal style! If you are a bit more edgy, throw on a studded leather jacket and combat boots with your skirt. If you are on the preppy side, layer a button up shirt with a sweater and oxfords with your skirt to complete the look. If you are going for a classy look, pair the skirt with a bright blazer and some nude pumps. Instantly adorable! If you like a retro look, add a pair of dark tights and Mary Jane pumps with a simple blouse. I love these skirts because they are so fun to wear!chelsea crockett tulle skirt

I really fell in love with this trend after seeing it on Pinterest! Do you have a Pinterest? If so, go ahead and follow me! The link to my account is here on my website, just click on the Pinterest logo at the top of the page!

I hope you enjoy this trend as much as I do!

For those of you that attend a private school or go to a school that requires a uniform, like a plaid skirt, you probably hate the sound of plaid.  Fortunately for you, plaid is back!  It is a design that fades in and out of the fashion world.  It can be seen on high fashion runways and on the streets of New York City and Los Angeles.  So think of your plaid uniform as high fashion!  Here’s all you need to know on rocking plaid. Chelsea Crockett- plaid shirts            A plaid button up is a must for every closet.  It is so versatile!  For that street style look, throw on a pair of high waisted shorts and a tank top.  Leave your plaid button up open and wear it over the tank.  You can roll the sleeves or leave them down!  It’s such a simple look!  If you want to go for a “grungier” look, try a pair of combat boots!  For a dressier plaid look, all you need is a little sparkle.  Throw on a sequin tank over a plaid dress or skirt.  Pair with tights and a cute pair of booties and you’re good to go!  It’s perfect for a night out on the town!  So next time you’re out shopping, pick up some plaid.  You can’t go wrong!

 Prints are huge this fall and one of my favorite prints this season is polka dots!  From denim to sweaters, this print can be found in so many different materials.  Sometimes, styling polka dots can be difficult since it’s such a bold print.  I’ll give you a few tricks, tips, and ideas on how to rock your polka dot item.Chelsea Crockett- polka dots

            Whether you going for the casual or business look, polka dots will keep you looking classy!  A casual way to wear polka dots is to style a pair of polka dot denim jeans.  Usually you can find these in a variety of colors from dark denim with light denim dots to white denim with black dots.  Pair these skinny jeans with a solid colored basic tee and a pair of your favorite flats.  If it’s chilly, throw on a light sweater and you’re good to go!  You don’t want to over shadow the pants (Throwing on a fedora is an awesome accessory too).  Another fun way to wear polka dots is on a sweater.  Find a chic print sweater and tuck it into a pencil skirt.  It’s still professional, but has a fun and girly twist to it.  Chunky necklaces are always a great accessory to go with a scoop neck sweater.  Glam it up!  Polka dot is a clean, classic print that will never go out of style.  Comment below and give me your fashion ideas for styling polka dots!

Love,

“Ugh, glasses, they’re so nerdy”……WRONG!  Glasses are starting to make their way back into the fashion world.  They are seen on the front cover of fashion magazines and runways all over the world.  Now it’s your turn to throw away those contacts and give your glasses a try.  What was once nerdy is now fabulously chic! Chelsea Crockett- ray-ban glasses

            Glasses should always enhance your face, not cover it up.  Think of them as an accessory, not a necessity (even though they are).  Thick “ray-ban” styled glasses are all the rage.  They give each and every outfit that edgy look with a sophisticated twist.   Try them in a bold black and soft brown to bring out your eyes.  Be sure to enhance your eye makeup to keep your eyes a key focus.  You don’t want your glasses to over-shadow your beautiful eyes!  Another cool trend to try is ombré glasses.  It gives your glasses that eye catching appearance and have a modern feel to them.  They are casual yet dressy!  You can wear them to a wedding or just to class.  Remember, glasses are a must have!  While I’m not condoning to wear glasses if you don’t need to, it’s not a crime to buy a fake pair to wear every once in a while.  Embrace your glasses and your hot new look!

The 80’s Are Back!

Have you ever looked back on old pictures of your mom and thought, “What is she wearing?!”  Well, as crazy as it sounds, a lot of what your mom may have worn in the 80’s is actually coming back in style.  Sometimes, I’ll throw on an outfit and my mom will tell me all about how she used to wear that when she was my age.  Anyone else go through that torture??  Now, let’s see if any of you have these items lying around in your closet.

            Have you ever thrown on a baggy tee, flannel shirt, or over-sized jacket with a pair of skinny jeans?  Yup, that’s from the 80’s!  It’s a huge trend, especially on the streets of LA and NYC.  A lot of celebrities, including Kylie Jenner, love the oversized look.  It’s super comfy and edgy, and can be worn almost anywhere.  It’s a great look that can be translated from the summer to the winter.Chelsea Crockett- 80s

            Another 80’s trend is high-waisted shorts and tie dye.  High waited shorts can be found anywhere, especially at Forever21 for a great price!  They come in different shades and styles and complete any look.  I love to throw on a pair of high waited shorts with a crop top.  It’s totally trendy.  Tie dye is also coming back in style.  For a great back to school look, try a tie dye cloth back pack.  It’ll take your boring school look from drab to fab.  This print can also be found on tanks, tees, and dresses.  It’s effortlessly chic!  So next time you make fun of your mom’s style, remember, it may come back in style.

 When you think of a scarf, you probably think of cold weather, don’t you?  A large coat, wool hat, and boots are usually what a scarf is paired with.  Surprisingly, a scarf CAN be worn in the summer.  Summer scarves are super cute and come in a variety of colors and prints.  These light weight scarves can be purchased almost anywhere; Forever21 carries a handful of cheap, summer scarves.Chelsea Crockett- Summer Scarves

            Summer scarves can be perfectly paired with a sun dress or a pair of high waisted shorts with a tank.  Adding a scarf to your look will give it an extra edge and pop of color!  Wrap the scarf around your neck multiple times, wrap it around once, or fold it in a square and then wrap it for a triangle look in the front.  The material used for these summer scarves are very light, so don’t worry, you won’t be sweating!  Go out and buy a sweet, summer scarf to pair with your cool summer looks.  You’ll guarantee to step up your summer style game.

Fake a Summer Tan Even in the Winter!

Hi Girls,

            Fall and winter are great times of the year!  Unfortunately, it’s that time when your summer tan fades.  So what should you do to keep that summer glow all winter long?  Check out a few of these beauty tips to get a nice tan without hitting the tanning bed! 

            In the winter, most of your body is covered up with clothing.  If you’re just looking for a glowing face and not planning on sporting a bathing suit any time soon, then go for a powered bronzer!  Apply your foundation as you normally would and begin highlighting your cheek bones with a bronzer suitable for your skin tone.  Since your skin is lighter in the winter, don’t use your summer bronzer, it’ll be too over powering.  Try a lighter bronzer and after highlighter your cheek bones, apply a small amount to the rest of your face.  To top off your look, use a light pink blush to get that summer shine.Chelsea Crockett- bronzer blush duo

            If you want that all around summer glow, go for a tanning lotion!  Try Jergans Natural Glow for a streak free summer tan!  After showering, rub it in like normal lotion and let it dry for about 10 minutes.  You won’t see results right away, so do this every day for about a week!  Don’t go to a tanning bed to get that beautiful summer glow.  Take the healthy route and get the tan you’ve always wanted!     

Love you all!

Hello Lovelies,

            This winter is all about the perfect coat.  Since most of your fashionable outfits are unfortunately covered up by your heavy cold weather outerwear, sporting the perfect coat is essential!  So do you choose to wear an old time favorite such as the pea coat, or do you go a little more edgy and rock a grungy army coat?  Let’s check out all of this season’s hottest styles!

            Pea coats are an old time classic that will never go out of style.  They come in almost every color and can be long or short.  You can easily throw on a pea coat with just about any outfit, or wear it with a dress and tights for a night out on the town.  One of this season’s cutest coats is a pea coat peplum jacket!  It’s a new twist on the timeless look.  It really puts a girly flair on the already feminine jacket.  Boost your pea coat style by trying out a pea coat peplum.  You can’t go wrong with peplums!Chelsea Crockett- pea coat

            Another one of my favorite trends right now is army!  Try an over-sized army green grunge coat this season.  It’s the perfect jacket to throw on anytime.  It can be perfectly paired with combat boots and a beanie, or simply styled with jeans and a black tee.  Unlike the pea coat, this jacket isn’t meant to be worn out to nicer occasions.  It’s definitely got that “street style” flare!  Whether you’re a girly girl, grungy street style seeker, or a little bit of both, there’s a coat out there for you!  Don’t let the cold get in your way… be stylish all winter long!

XOXO,
