Denim is a timeless trend that I don’t see going away anytime soon.  That being said, denim jackets in particular are one of the biggest trends this season!  There are tons of different kinds to fit your preferred look and style.  Here are 3 different jackets you can pick from that are trendy, comfy, and stylish!

  • Distressed Denim.Chelsea Crockett - Denim Jacket This look is one of the more basic jackets that goes with almost any outfit.  You can throw it on to run some errands or dress it up to wear for a night out!  I think it’s a statement article of clothing that every wardrobe needs to have!
  • Acid Wash Denim. If you want to put a spin on your denim jacket, try acid wash!  This jacket has a grunge feel to it that gives off an edgy vibe.  Wear it with a pair of black ripped jeans and sneakers to create the perfect street look.  And again, you can dress it up or dress it down!
  • Embroidered Denim. This jacket has a more feminine look to it than the others.  You can find embroidered denim jackets with all different types of floral patterns and designs.  This is a fun way to change up your denim look and make it even more stylish!

Which is your favorite style?  Let me know in the comment section below!

The velvet trend is back and better than ever for the upcoming seasons of 2017!  Velvet is one of my favorite materials because it’s so soft and comfy to rock for both casual and formal occasions.  Here’s how you can hop on the velvet bandwagon this season, too!

Chelsea Crockett - Velvet Shoes

Not only is velvet back, but there’salso a new trend within the new trend! Crushed velvet seems to be the new style that’s just a little different than regular velvet.  The material is more so in patches and more “crushed” together instead of a smoother velvet. You can wear a button-down shirt with distressed jeans for the comfy look or a crushed velvet evening dress to put a spin on your outfit!

Another way to rock velvet is with your shoes!  They’re unique and give a vintage, classy allure to any outfit. Velvet heels or boots with a block heel can complete any look! Slides, high heels, sneakers, and even slippers are appearing in this holiday-centric fabric.

If you’re looking for a homecoming or formal dress, check out a velvet look whether it be a dress, romper, or jumpsuit!  It’s a perfect way to put a spin on any ordinary outfit while being stylish at the same time! 🙂 Check out what you can do with velvet and how you can make it your own with your outfits!

The season of homecoming and formal is well among us!  Maybe you’re attending your high school’s homecoming or your college sorority’s formal.  Either way, you’ll need an amazing dress to make your night the best it can be!  Here are a few dress trends to check out this homecoming season. 🙂

  • Statement Sleeves. This season is all about fun, statement sleeves!  Dresses with off-the-shoulder sleeves are a good way to spice up any simple dress.  Keep an eye out for lace, sheer, or other materials that make for the perfect sleeves to add something extra to your dress.
  • Velvet is HUGE right now in the fashion world! Chelsea Crockett - Maxi Romper It’s a timeless trend that’s gotten the spotlight recently.  Velvet dresses are classy, feminine, and put a twist on any plain dress.
  • Maxi Romper. Like the picture on the right, there are so many fashionable maxi rompers you can dress up to create the perfect homecoming/formal outfit!  I love these because they’re different from other basic dresses and rompers (it’s like a two-in-one!).
  • Cut Outs. These have been in the past couple of years and they’re still in!  Especially no backs, these can spice up any dress you’re looking for!

Which trend are you going to rock this year?  Tell me in the comment section below!

Fall Trends 2017: Over-the-Knee Boots

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest trends, then I’m sure you’ve seen the recent boom of over-the-knee boots. They’re super stylish and can be mixed and matched with so many different outfits! I wanted to give you a little insight about where you can find a pair and what different looks you can create with them!

First, let’s talk about where you can buy a pair.  Chelsea Crockett - Over the Knee BootsSince they’ve gotten so popular, you can actually find them at more stores than you think! Charlotte Russe sells a pair for only $26.99! If you’re willing to splurge a little more on your pair, check out DSW. They sell so many different boots from several different designers. If you don’t have a DSW near you, you can check online to find a pair!

Now, let’s talk about a few different outfits you can put together!  One of my favorite looks for the season is a sweater dress.  If you pair a comfy sweater dress with your knee-high boots, it’ll create the perfect casual fall outfit like the picture on the right! Another look is pairing your boots with a pair of light jeans and a comfy sweater/top! You could even rock a long cardigan with it as well. There are so many more looks that go great with knee-highs!

Do you like this new style of boot? Give me your opinion on them in the comment section below!

Fall weather is finally here which means cooler temperatures and stylish fall outfits.  Between tailgates and fun fall dinner dates, there are lots of occasions to rock all types of trendy skirts!  Right now, I’m obsessed with these two skirt styles!Chelsea Crockett - Fall Skirt

The first style is a jean skirt with frayed hems.  This style is simple but has a twist to it!  You can pair it with a cute belt, blouse, and booties to create the perfect fall look.  You can also pair it with a long cardigan or a tied sweater.  With denim, really anything goes!

The other skirt is a velvet or corduroy button up the front skirt like the picture on the right. They come in all different fall colors like maroon, green, gold, dark purple, etc. Again, these are stylish to pair with a cute top and booties and is the perfect look for a football game day! You can dress them up by adding a jacket or a scarf, too.

Which style do you like better?  Let me know in the comment section below which skirt style you like to rock during the fall!

I like to stay up-to-date with the latest trends so I know what’re the next most fashionable and stylish things I should have in my closet!  This upcoming winter, there are a few different trends that I think stand out among the rest, and are so, so cute!  Here are a few trends you’ll need to take note of for the next few months! 🙂

  • Double Denim. Chelsea Crockett - Denim on Denim Denim is one of my favorite things to rock, whether it be a denim jacket, boyfriend jeans, a denim dress, etc.  It’s a timeless trend that has been around for decades, and now you can rock denim times two!  🙂
  • Knit.  When I think of knit, I think of bundling up in a knit sweater during the cold months!  This winter, knit sweaters, ponchos, cardigans, etc. are going to be the perfect way to keep warm and stay fashionable.
  • Business Casual.  Certain styles and trends allow you to loosen up and dress down which I love, but this winter, business casual looks are coming back into play!  Things like blazers, collared shirts, and toned down colors are making their statement this year.
  • Sportswear.  I love trends that allow me to dress comfy and casual, but still look just as stylish.  Sportswear, or street style, has been in the fashion world for a while, and it’s not going away anytime soon!  Pull out your leggings, sneakers, and a graphic tee, and you’re good to go!

Which trend is your favorite?  Have you heard of any other upcoming winter trends?  Share them with me below! 🙂

I know for a fact that jeans will never go out of style.  They’re timeless and can be worn for almost any occasion.  The best part about jeans is that you can match them with pretty much anything!  There are three trendy jean styles that are making their way into the fashion world this fall that you should try rocking yourself!

  • Tasseled Ends.  Chelsea Crockett - Embroidered JeansI saw a pair of these when I was out shopping and I fell in love!  They usually cut off at the capri length and finish off with tasseled threads.  They’re so cute and perfect for a casual day out with friends!
  • Mom Jeans.  The 90s are back in action ladies!  Mom jeans are usually high waisted and can be rolled at the bottom to complete the look.  You can pair these with a retro top to really rock the 90s style!
  • Slit Hems.  If you want a pair of simple jeans that have a little twist to them, buy a pair of these!  They look like normal jeans until about halfway down your calf where the hems on the side split.  They’re super cute and allow you to switch it up!  (Look at the above picture for example!)
  • Embroidered Denim.  I love embroidered shirts and pants.  They’re both vintage and fashionable.  You can find jeans with embroidered flowers and other designs at certain boutiques or online!

Which look is your favorite?  Let me know below!  I think mine are the tasseled ends, how fun are those?!

Hair trends are like any other trend, they stay for a season or two then get replaced by even better ones!  This fall, there are a few upcoming looks that you just might have to try out for yourself!  Here are 5 hair trends you should know about for the upcoming season!

  • Caramel Brown.  Chelsea Crockett - Rose HairWinter is usually the time to go darker rather than lighter with your hair.  But if you don’t want to go too dark, go with a soft, caramel brown!  You can still switch up your look without going too out of your comfort zone.
  • Rose.  If you’re willing to get a little out of your comfort zone, try out a dusty rose color.  Pastel hair has become a trend in the past few years so why not hop on the bandwagon and try it out for yourself!
  • Red Accents/Highlights.  I’ve always been a little tempted to try this trend out for myself.  You can get a subtle red tint or go for a full head of vibrant, red highlights.  Whatever suits you best!
  • Bold Brown.  Instead of adding subtle brown highlights, be bold and go for a dark, chocolate brown.  Why not, right?!
  • Blonde Lowlights.  If you want something a little more natural, try blonde lowlights.  Although you can only get these if you’re already blonde, they give you that darker tint that’s perfect for the winter!

Be daring this fall and give one of these a try!  Hey, you can always dye it back right? 🙂

One of the biggest trends towards the end of the summer was big, statement earrings.  And several fashion websites and magazines predict that this trend will carry on into the fall!  There are a few styles that stick out and are making a statement in the fashion world! 🙂

  • Hoop Earrings.Chelsea Crockett - Tassel Earrings  You may think hoop earrings are stuck in the 90s, but they’ve actually made a huge comeback!  Big gold or silver hoops are totally back in style and can be dressed up or dressed down with the right outfit.
  • Tassel Earrings.  Like the earrings on the right, tassel earrings are so cute and fun to wear!  You can find all different colors and styles to fit your personality.  If you like bright colors, go for a hot pink!  If you’re more on the mellow side, go for a neutral color like white, black, or grey to tone it down.
  • Pom Pom Earrings.  If you’ve ever seen these, then you know they really are statement earrings!  They definitely add some pop to your outfit.  You can get them with one pom pom or three pom poms to make them dangle earrings, too!

In our society, modesty is something that’s considered “weird” or “non-fashionable.”  So many girls think it’s overrated and a forgotten way of the past.  But there are actually so many fashionable looks and outfits that you can rock all summer long!  After all, modest is hottest, right? 🙂      

  • One-piece swimsuits.  If you haven’t already seen the hundreds of girls rocking one pieces on the beach or at the pool, then I’m here to tell you that they’ve made a major comeback!  Almost every brand that offers swimsuits now sells stylish one pieces that are fashionable and trendy yet comfortable and modest!
  • Midi-skirts.  I know for me, it’s hard to find a skirt that fits me just right yet isn’t super short.  Midi-skirts are the perfect exception!  Chelsea Crockett - Collared ShirtYou can dress them up or dress them down with heels, wedges, accessories, etc.  If you find the right shirt, you can create the perfect trendy look!   
  • Long Overalls.  Like I’ve mentioned in plenty other articles, overalls are back!  You can buy them in the classic jean material or find them in different colors anywhere from black to light pink.  They give off a retro look that’s both modest and super trendy! 
  • Collared Shirts.  Now I’m not saying you have to rock a buttoned-up polo, but loose fitting collared shirts are so in and so cute!  Pair them with jeans and wedges to create the perfect beachy look.  Take the outfit on the right for example!   

Which modest trend is your favorite?  I love all of them!  Let me know which one you rock the most below!

  • Peplum Swimsuits. Chelsea Crockett - Peplum Swimsuits Remember when peplum tops were the hottest trend of the year?  They’re making a comeback but in swimsuits instead!  They’re the cutest tops to pair with some patterned high-waisted bottoms.  Look at the picture on the right for example.  You can mix and match swimsuits for the perfect look!

With summer in full swing, we can all expect a new wave of trends coming in!  Whether those be shoe trends, shirt trends, makeup trends, etc., you’ll have to get up-to-date with what trends will be “in” this season.  Here are a few makeup trends to look out for in summer 2017 so you can have the trendiest look in town!

  • Sunset eyes.  Soft reds, oranges, and yellows make for the perfect sunset eyeshadow look! Chelsea Crockett - Sunset Eyeshadow There are tons of different tutorials and ways to achieve this look.  You can go above and beyond or do a simple blended look!
  • Clean/no makeup look.  You can never go wrong with the natural look, especially this summer!  Light blush, thin eyeliner, nude lips, etc. are all something to try out this season.
  • Blue.  Too much blue can sometimes be too over-the-top, but it’s “in” this summer.  Light blue eyeshadow or even blue lips can make your makeup pop!
  • Soft colors/pastels.  I’ve always been a fan of pastels, and this summer they’re going to be super popular.  This could include pastel cheeks, lips, eyes, anything!
  • White accents.  White accented eyes are the perfect way to make your eyes pop.  Adding lighter shades around the inner corners of your eyes and your waterline will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter.

Which trendy makeup look are you going to try out this summer?  Let me know in the comment section below!  I’m hoping to try them all out myself! 🙂

The Met Gala just happened and it was one of the best years yet, filled with lots of celebrities, stylish attires, and new trends!  I’m sure you saw some of the most popular looks from the red carpet, but there were plenty that went unnoticed, as well.  Here are a few overall trends from the event!

  • Red, red, and more red! Chelsea Crockett - Met Gala Red Dress Red has always been one of my favorite colors to wear when I have a big event to go to.  It’s a color that draws attention and looks great in photos! 🙂
  • Open backs.  Remember when cutouts were a big thing?  Well at the Met Gala this year, there were lots of jumpsuits and dresses with open or low backs!
  • Silver accessories.  Silver is my favorite type of jewelry to wear at the moment and apparently it was for the celebrities on the red carpet, as well!  It’s easy to match with any colors and shades, so owning a lot of silver is never a bad thing!
  • Fringe.  Fringed clothing and shoes can either be really cute or over-the-top, but all of the different fringe looks from the Met Gala were super stylish and definitely stood out!

Glitter is one of those things you either love or hate.  As long as it’s in moderation, I like adding a little shimmer to spice up my look.  If you’re a hardcore glitter lover, then I have a few hacks that will glitter-up almost any makeup look you’re trying out.  Here are five glitter hacks to satisfy your obsession!

  • Add a tiny amount of finely powdered glitter into your finishing spray.  Chelsea Crockett - Glitter LipsAfter your makeup is complete, apply this spray to make your whole face shine!
  • You can make your own body shimmer by mixing together body oil and loose shimmer pigment.  Then apply it wherever you want to make your body glow!
  • If you want to make your lips “glittered-out,” apply a coat of lip gloss to your lips.  Then, apply finely-sorted glitter to your lips with a Q-tip.  It will stick right to the gloss!
  • Use eyelash glue as a base for any glitter accents you want to add around your face.  If you’re going for that Coachella look, you can add glitter dots all around your eyes using this method!
  • Have you ever seen the glitter roots trend?  You can paint some glitter onto your part using a small eyeshadow brush.  Look at the pic above for example!  How unique is that? (Perfect for festival season!)

Trend Alert: Overalls!

Overalls are a trend that have been considered “out” for a long time!  But recently, they’ve made a huge comeback anywhere from Forever21 to Express to Nordstrom.  You may be picturing the typical long, jean overalls but there are actually many different styles and colors that are much more popular! 

Chelsea Crockett - OverallsFirst, you’ll need to decide if you want long or short overalls.  There’s also the option of getting overalls with a skirt if you want to get a nicer pair!  Some pairs will have the typical pockets on the front and back of the overalls but others, like the one on the left, will have a sleeker look without pockets that you can dress up.

After you decide the style you want, you’ll have to pick a color.  I’m sure there are all different colors to choose from, but some colors I’ve seen a lot more than others.  Jean is obviously the most popular and the color you’ll see most in stores!  It matches with everything and can be a casual look for a day out with friends!  As for other colors, other popular ones include black, white, light pink, or army green.  Get one of these colors to mix it up!

Are you going to get a pair?  Let me know below which style is your favorite!

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  I get to see all of my family, eat a delicious homemade meal, and celebrate Jesus’s resurrection!  Every year, I pick out a dress to wear to church and family get-togethers on Easter Sunday.Chelsea Crockett - Overalls  If you’re wondering what to wear, here’s a little guide on what’s “in” and what’s “out” this year!

Casual: If you’re going for a more casual look, then you have lots of options to choose from!  One look I’ve really been into lately is short overalls with a tee underneath.  Some overalls have a skirt instead of shorts which is a little dressier for the occasion!  Dress it up with jewelry and a casual pair of wedges or sandals.  You can also go with a casual patterned romper or a cute shirt and white pants.

Dressy:  If you’re planning on dressing up for Easter, which is what I normally do, sometimes less is more!  A simple pastel or white sundress can be dressed up with heels or wedges, accessories, and maybe a cute hat!  Focus on finding a dress that’s a pretty spring color such as light pink, white, or pastel purple!  You could even try out a fancy romper or a patterned two-piece set. 

What are you thinking about wearing for Easter Sunday?  Let me know below!  Maybe I’ll get some ideas for myself. 🙂

Happy Easter! – Chelsea
