Blanket scarves are one of the best things about winter fashion. They come in so many colors and patterns and can be worn a million different ways! Blanket scarves aren’t just meant to be scarves! Here are a few of my favorite ways to style them.

  1. With a belt: if you want to create a vest out of your scarf, put the middle of the scarf around your neck and let the long parts hang in front. Secure the scarf around your waist with a belt to keep it in place.blanket
  2. As a shawl: Wear the scarf around your shoulders as a shawl or like a poncho! It is a warm and easy way to wear a blanket scarf.
  3. The classic way: Around your neck! Sometimes I avoid wearing my blanket scarves this way because it can sometimes feel like they are suffocating me. But other times when I am freezing (the Midwest is COLD!) the chunkiness of blanket scarves is warm and welcome.
  4. Like a bandana: Tie the corners of the scarf around the back of your neck so the scarf looks sort of like a bandana. This is a really trendy, cool way to wear your scarf.

Can you think of other creative ways to wear blanket scarves?

How to Style Over the Knee Boots

On Pinterest I always see pictures of women wearing chic over-the-knee boots and I drool a little. The boots are so trendy and look effortlessly stylish. They so slimming, too! Well, as we have heard time and time again, some things look better in pictures than they do in real life. Over-the-knee boots are one of those things. As it turns out, styling and being able to pull off over-the-knee boots is actually a bit of a challenge because they look different on everyone! Here are a few tips on how to wear them for every body type.cb666451ac39f3e7bfadeb1f593ee34e

 For tall girlies: You ladies have it the best when it comes to over-the-knee boots. Your long legs are beneficial because the boots accentuate them and make them look even longer! Pair them with a simple sweater dress for a great balance between your boots and your hemline.

For curvy ladies: If you have curves you can totally rock these bad boys! It is all about how you wear them. Go for a pair that hits right above the knee and creates a lean, long leg line with some dark denim jeans. As for your top, wear a long sweater or blouse to finish the ensemble off.

For petite gals: When it comes to my petite pals, I suggest pairing over-the-knee boots with fitted pieces that show your shape. It is important not to overwhelm your small frame! Don’t wear tops or dresses with long hemlines that make your legs look short, go for tops/dresses/skirts that leave plenty of space between your hemline and boots.

These stylish boots can work for any body type! You just have to know how to style them in a way that works with YOU. 😉

Athleisure Style This Fall and Winter

Athleisure is an up-and-coming trend that I am loving, I have to admit. Athleisure is casual clothing like yoga pants, sweat pants, and pullovers that are designed to be worn for both exercising and pretty much everything else. So, they are athletic clothes that are stylish and functional, meaning you can wear them to the gym and then to the grocery store and look stylin’ while doing both. This trend is both comfy and trendy, so I am ready to hop on board. Here are 3 athleisure looks to try this fall and winter.

  1. Super casual: In this style we see workout leggings paired with a loose tank top layered under a simple pullover. The outfit is finished off with some slip-on sneakers. I like this look because it is effortless and really casual, but it is also comfy and can be worn out and about.0c6ead14e21331bfc652272ade7c4ab4
  2. Cute and comfy: This next look pairs workout leggings with some Hunter boots, and white long-sleeve tee layered under a cute thermal pullover and puffy vest. This style is really preppy and cute while also being comfy and practical.5939f30b8b4c520aa203b4e31589e4a5
  3. Trendy and effortless: This next look is the most complex, but is also my personal favorite. This look pairs some workout leggings with awesome textured patches on the knees, a white long-sleeve tee, and a green army jacket with an infinity scarf to top it off. The tennis shoes keep the outfit athletic while the army jacket takes it to a more “street-worthy” state.3eedbd2995cf26b1f16332744e2b1fc2

I love outfits that I can wear straight from the gym to run errands, or just to be comfy while I’m out and about! Athletic clothes can be dressed up in so many ways to make them more “outfit” ready. Who says comfy can’t also be cute?

XOXO, Chels

Do you have many Christmas or New Year’s parties to attend this season? Or, do you have any fun Christmas outings? A little black dress is the perfect piece to wear to any of the above. They are classy, versatile, and chic. Everyone needs a little black dress in their closet for those special holiday occasions. Here are 3 of my favorite winter little black dresses.

  1. Sweet and girly: I love this dress. The Peter Pan collar adds such a sweet, feminine touch to the simple silhouette. Wear with tights and booties for an adorable ensemble.dress
  2. Simple and chic: If you are looking for a simple, versatile black dress then this is the one for you! The long sleeves keep you warm and the medium length of the skirt allows you to layer it over some tights if you are chilly.This simple dress also gives you a lot of freedom to accessorize.dress-2
  3. Fun and flowy: Want a casual, fun take on a little black dress? This dress right here will do the trick. It is fun, flirty, and flowy! Pair with cute wedge booties for a adorable ensemble. You could also layer a cute black leather moto jacket over it for a fun retro vibe.dress-3

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!

Fall 2016 Off-the-Shoulder Style

Off-the-shoulder style is one of my favorite looks.  It gives off an elegant, feminine vibe that can sometimes be hard to pull off with a simple piece of clothing.  But with off-the-shoulder shirts and dresses, you can put together a classy outfit in seconds! 

One of my favorite materials for fall is suede, so pairing it with this style is super cute!  Chelsea Crockett - Suede DressThe dress on the left is a good example of this.  Pairing it with wedged booties, a choker, and a bold lip creates a perfect dressy outfit for fall.  Maybe you have a dinner date or an event that you have to dress up for.  This look is elegant, classy, and can be dressed up or dressed down!

If you want a more casual off-the-shoulder look for fall, another fave outfit of mine is a denim, long-sleeved shirt.  Denim is another one of my favorite fall materials, whether it be a denim jacket, skirt, etc.  It’s an easy color to pair with black jeans and a cute hat!

Apart from suede dresses and denim tops, there are so many different off-the-shoulder looks you can come up with!  A lot of stores will be selling fall-inspired tops so keep an eye out! 🙂

One trend I am really loving is the “lace-up” fashion trend. There are tons of ways to wear this trend, from shirts that lace-up at the top, to dresses that do the same, and even flats that lace up and tie behind your ankles. Today, we are going to focus on lace-up flats and how you can style these trendy shoes. They are so versatile!dress

  1. Casually, with shorts: If you are a casual gal and are looking for an easy but stylish outfit, pair a simple white shirt with cutoff jean shorts and lace-up flats. The flats will give the outfit a fashion-forward flare while the shirt and shorts keep things simple.
  2. Cute, with a dress: If you want to show your dressy side, pair a simple dress with lace-up flats. Because the shoes are your outfit’s focal point, wear a dress that does not have a pattern on it. I love a white dress, nude flat combo!
  3. Effortless, with jeans: Looking for an effortlessly chic outfit? Pair ripped black skinnies with a white shirt and black or nude lace up flats. Easy, simple, and fashionable.

What is YOUR favorite way to wear lace-up flats?

Mmmkay, so let me tell you about a fashion trend that I am totally loving right now. It is the “off-the-shoulder” clothing trend. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me rocking the trend in a dress from MOD! I feel like this trend is so fun, effortless, and feminine. Here are 3 of my favorite ways to wear the trend.

  1. On a dress: This is my favorite way to rock the off-the-shoulder trend. One reason is because I love wearing dresses and would wear them every day if I could. The second is because it is just so fun and flirty! Perfect for a spring or summer date night or wedding.dress
  2. On a shirt: An off-the-shoulder shirt with a pair of skinny jeans is a great everyday look during the sprng and summer time. It is such a breezy, chic combo.shirt
  3. On a romper: Rompers are such a fun spring and summer outfit. They are the perfect in-between style choice if you are don’t want to wear a dress but you aren’t keen on shorts either. Super cute and casual! I love this off-the-shoulder romper, because it is preppy and pretty.romper

I just cannot get enough of this trend and will most definitely be rocking it during these warm-weather months! What are your thoughts on it?

Spring is the perfect time to rock a midi skirt. What is a midi skirt, you ask? It is a skirt that is in-between the length of a maxi skirt and a mini skirt. It comes to your knees and is a classy, retro piece that I love! Midi skirts are perfect for spring because they are not too long so you don’t get too hot, and not to short so you don’t get chilly! Here are a few of my favorite spring midi skirt styles.

  1. Floral: I love this floral midi from Lulus. It has sort of a watercolor look to it. The floral print is so feminine and darling! This ensemble would be the perfect grad party wear.a2aec59da4975e57c00706b85a5f7414
  2. Pastel: Pastel midis are chic and classic. They give you an understated, elegant look that is just timeless. If you desire a simple, sweet ensemble, pair a pastel midi skirt with a simple sweater and wedges or heels. This is a great spring church outfit or brunch look!
  3. Bright: If you are looking to make a statement, then grab a bright colored midi! I love this hot pink retro-ish skirt. It gives off a fun, carefree vibe. This skirt is also from Lulus!pink

So, what do you think, will you try the midi skirt style this spring?

Graduation Attire 101

Summer, warm weather, and days in the sun are almost here… But first, graduation! With me being a senior this year, I’m graduating and moving on to bigger and better things. Graduation is a big deal, and I obviously want to look my best for the big day. So, I came up with a little guide on how to style your outfit for graduation day!Chelsea Crockett - Graduation Dress

First comes first, know your colors. Since it’s spring, see which shades look best with your hair color and skin tone. Use those to your advantage! I love floral patterns during the spring. If you do too, you can always find the pattern you like with which colors go best with you! Not only is floral good for spring, but patterns are always fun to play around with! Don’t be too limited when it comes to patterns and materials. Stripes, lace, chevron, etc. may turn out to be your fave trend!

As far as guidelines go, make sure your dress isn’t too short or too low-cut. Although your gown will be covering up the majority of it, people will still see it for pictures and before and after the ceremony. For your shoes, I would suggest a stylish pair of wedges or casual heels. I prefer wedges because they’re more comfortable and easier to walk in (which is a good idea for walking to get your diploma!).

I hope this helped you get an idea of what outfit you’ll wear for your big day!

XOXO – Chelsea

The world’s most dreaded yet loved holiday is right around the corner. If you have a date night planned and set, then you’re probably in the group that loves Valentine’s Day. You might have your night planned out, but you’ll still need a stylish outfit to rock… and I’m here to help :)!Chelsea Crockett - Valentine's Day Outfit

Depending on where you live, you’ll have to adjust your outfit to the weather. If you live somewhere warmer, the outfit on the left is one of my faves! Find a pair of sequined or sparkly shorts (sometimes you can even find a skort which is totally in right now!). Pair it with a simple, loose shirt or tank and finish the look with a black blazer. Add in some jewelry and heeled booties or wedges!

If you live somewhere that isn’t so warm and sunny, a new huge trend is high knee socks! If you have a red or pink dress or skirt, try pairing that with a pair of black or white high knee socks! They’re so cute and can replace wearing tights under your dress. It’s best to wear a pair of booties with them to complete the look.

Depending on how formal your date is, mix up your outfit to match the occasion! Also, pick out you outfit before the day of your date so you’re not stressed trying to find one. Let me know how it turns out!

Love, Chelsea

How much black do you have in your closet? I’d say every fashion-seeking girl has a fair amount of black in her wardrobe. It is just a classy, versatile color that can be styled in so many ways. But, as far as dark neutral colors go, gray is the closest thing to black, and is also a perfect accent or substitute for it. If you are wary to wear black, or are just tired of wearing it, gray is a great alternative. Gray compliments just about anything, from neon shades to neutrals. Here are 3 ways to go gray this fall and winter.grey

  1. Cute and girly: If you like to show your girly side, try pairing some black tights with a dark gray wool skater skirt and a light gray sweater. The different shades give the outfit some dimension, plus the combo is just too cute!
  2. Comfy and casual: This outfit is a great casual option. Layer a chunky, oversized gray sweater with a lighter gray knitted infinity scarf. The contrasting knit patterns will draw people’s eyes.
  3. Contrasting: Pair some gray skinnies with a white shirt for a sharp contrasting look that is simple yet eye-catching.

Do you have more suggestions on how to make gray your wardrobe’s new black?

We’ve all heard the saying “less is more.” It’s the key to high fashion and putting together a chic, stylish look. It’s hard to get the perfect balance when putting together a simple minimal look, but it’s possible with a little help :).Chelsea Crockett - Minimal Outfit

Most girls struggle between wanting to pull off a look like this without looking too plain. It’s not as hard as you think! There are only a couple pointers that you’ll have to follow. First, you’ll have to wear neutral colors such as white, tan, black, nude, etc. Make sure it’s a solid color without any bright or neon shades.

Next, you’ll need some clean cut articles of clothing. Pieces such as blazers are a sharp effect that makes your outfit look elegant and put together. The outfit on the right is one of my favorite examples of this. How cute is that? It may not be your style, but if you like it, it’s pretty easy to pull off!

You might read on other fashion blogs that too many accessories are an absolute no, but that’s not always the case. Yes, chunky bright bracelets aren’t going to go too well with a simple, neutral outfit, but you can always accessorize when it comes to fashion. The best way to do so is with silver and gold jewelry. A neutral watch with a small diamond necklace and studs is how I prefer to accessorize when it comes to this type of outfit.

I hope this gave you some tips next time you want to rock a look like this!

Love, Chelsea

3 Homecoming Must-Haves: Guide to a Perfect Outfit

Homecoming season is here and I couldn’t be more excited! Getting dressed up, taking a million pictures, a night with all your BFFs… Three of my favorite things in one night! Although the night itself is extremely fun, leading up to the event can be pretty stressful. You must find the essentials needed to make your outfit amazing. Here are 3 things you can write on the top of your Hoco to-do list! 

First comes first, you’re going to need a fabulous dress (duh!). Windsor, BeBe, and Express are only a few of the several stores you can shop at! Keep in mind the style and color you want. Walking into those types of stores without an idea in your head can sometimes seem overwhelming! And if you find a dress you love while on the search for another, try it on too!Chelsea Crockett - Heels

Second, you’ll want to purchase some stylish heels. (Depending on the type of person you are, you may want to wear flats. You decide!) If your dress is super simple, I suggest rocking some statement heels! If your dress already has a lot going on, then tone your shoes down with a solid color pair of heels. 

Lastly, you’ll need lots of accessories to finish off your look! It’ll all depend on your dress and shoes, but I suggest wearing a necklace, earrings, and a clutch. Consider the style and how formal your dress is. You don’t want an extremely formal dress with over the top earrings and an over the top necklace. Make sure everything balances and fits together!

I can’t wait to see what gorgeous outfits you come up with for homecoming!

Love, Chels

Color is something you can have fun with. Whether you like pinks and reds or blues and greens, you can add a little pop to your outfit by simply rocking a statement color! Sometimes this can be a bright lipstick or a not-so-ordinary hair color. Either way, finding what looks best and how to pull it off can be tough! Here’s a little guide I like to follow :).Chelsea Crockett - All Black Outfit

  • Sometimes I wake up in the edgy mood to rock combat boots and a flannel button up. Other times I want to dress a little preppy and girly! All shades of pink give off a flirty vibe and go well with almost any skin tone or hair color. One of my favorite looks is a rose pink dress accented with white or silver accessories. If you’re more of a hot pink kind of girl, try throwing on a pair of bright heels or a daring lipstick!
  • On the total opposite end, all black everything can be a statement in itself. You might be thinking it’s too dark for your personality or that you won’t be able to pull it off… Think again! An outfit like the one on the right is simple and chic. Give it a try!
  • Red is a color almost every girl wants to be able to pull off. To do so, you can’t be afraid to totally rock it! Red lipstick, a red dress, or even red, auburn highlights has only one secret to pulling them off. Be confident! I promise, you’ll turn heads!

What color would be your “signature color?” I prefer fun, bright colors to match my personality! Let me know below and tell me how you choose to rock it!

XOXO, Chels

How to Mix Light and Dark Outfit Shades

We all know that black and white are the chicest of all color combos.  It’s the ultimate mix between light and dark shades and will never go out of style!  Some color combinations can be tricky and look misplaced if not paired with the right color!  It’s important to contrast correctly and when done right…it looks amazing!Chelsea Crockett- emerald green and tan outfit

Pastel shades are absolutely perfect for the upcoming spring season, but wearing too many light colors can wash a person out (especially since bronzed summer skin hasn’t arrived yet).  Pastel blue and pink look amazing paired with a dark charcoal grey!  Try dark grey skinny’s with a pastel sweater, blouse, or jacket!

Another one of my favorite color combos are emerald green and light tan/cream.  The green will bring out more brownish tone of the tan, while still keeping it subtle.  It’s a great way to wear a bold color without going overboard!  Try this with dark teal and heather grey as well!

Don’t be afraid to mix light and dark colors.  It can be done during any season and always looks high fashion!

XOXO,

Chelsea
