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?!

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!

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

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!

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!

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!

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?

XOXO, Chels

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

There are some items of clothing that never go out of style. I tried to pack as many of this sort of thing to go to college with me as I could. I love dressing trendy and stylish, and there are clothing items that you can literally wear tons of ways and with tons of different combinations (aka your basic white V-neck t-shirt) and will always be in style. Here are a few closet staples that I made sure not to leave Illinois without.1cf6273d9462ef3c7090e1eb2c2c40fe

  1. Simple white button-down shirt: Layer it under a sweater, vest, blazer or wear it by itself. There is nothing classier or more versatile than a simple white button up.
  2. Nice pair of black slacks: Everyone needs a dressy pair of black slacks for any professional event or interview that may arise! You always want to be prepared.
  3. Classy fitted blazer: For job interviews, dressy parties, or professional school events.
  4. Trendy leather jacket: I love an edgy leather jacket.
  5. Pair of classic dark denim: A pair of dark denim pants can be paired with pretty much anything and can be both dressed up or dressed down.
  6. Classic denim jacket: For those chilly summer/fall evenings.
  7. Flattering denim shorts: A cute pair of denim shorts that fit well are essential to any wardrobe. They’re super versatile and never go out of style.
  8. Cute black jeans: I love a nice pair of black denim. They’re a little more edgy than standard blue jeans and pair well with all kinds of tops, from dressy to casual.
  9. Standard white v-neck: The perfect lazy day top. Pair with simple jeans and white Keds for an effortlessly easy ensemble.
  10. Nice trench coat: For the days when it is too warm for your winter coat but too cold for a jacket.

Keep these items in your closet and you will never run out of things to wear! So many combos!

Why We Should Accept that Everyone’s Style is Different

Walk through the halls of high school, mall, or walk through a college campus and you will discover one thing: everyone dresses differently. It may be subtly different or drastically…

Walk through the halls of high school, mall, or walk through a college campus and you will discover one thing: everyone dresses differently. It may be subtly different or drastically unique, but there is no escaping the fact that everyone has their own personal style. And you know what? That is awesome! Life would be so boring if we were all the same! Unfortunately, sometimes we catch ourselves making fun of or negatively commenting on other people’s style, saying that it looks weird or isn’t the cutest. Here are just a few reasons why we shouldn’t make fun or bash other people’s personal style.

  1. Different is just different, it doesn’t make it ugly: For a lot of us, our tendency is to think that anything that is different from our own preferences isn’t cute or is wrong. If you love wearing colors and patterns, then simplistic style may seem boring and dull to you. If you love preppy style, the boho/hippie style trend is probably far from your favorite. But, just because we aren’t interested in it or don’t want to wear it ourselves doesn’t make it un-stylish or ugly!FullSizeRender (76)
  2. Style is personal: And it is also a journey. When I was in middle school and the early high school stages, I loved wearing name brands and t-shirts with their logos on them. Now, I rarely wear those brands, and tend to wear more trendy pieces and am more adventurous with my wardrobe. Your style changes as you change, and it can even depend on how you are feeling that day when you pick out your outfit! So, teasing someone on their outfit choice is ultimately telling them that their style isn’t as mature as yours or they have no clue about what is fashionable, when that isn’t the case at all!
  3. Experimenting is fun: Wearing the same style of clothes day after day can get boring, so switching up your style keeps things fun and interesting! Why wear what you think everyone else is wearing or what you think others will like when you can wear what YOU like and feel comfortable in? Experiment with different looks and have fun with fashion. Don’t put yourself in a style box and feel like you have to stay within that “style,” and don’t let others feel like you have to BE in a box!

So, next time you see someone wearing an outfit that is so not your style, just look at them and think “They have interesting personal style, and they totally rock it!” You know the awesome feeling of putting together an outfit that is totally “you” and how confident and pretty you feel when wearing it, so you can recognize when someone else is feeling that way about their outfit and themselves.

XOXO, Chels

Neck Contouring: It is Really a Thing

I thought I had seen it all when it comes to makeup, but I was wrong! Today we will discuss the new trend of “neck contouring.” It is exactly what it sounds like, people are contouring their neck!ContourNeck

Why would they take the time to do this? To accent an updo, of course! When you have your hair up, the back of your neck is exposed, and contouring it accents the hairstyle by shadowing and highlighting the nape of your neck! Instagrammer “mwhairstyles” demonstrated this in one of her videos. Some people may think that contouring the back of your neck is total overkill and totally unnecessary, and I partially agree with them! I also think that makeup is art, and that people should be able to express them artistically through makeup. If they want to use their artistic abilities to make their neck look slimmer, more power to them! 😉 My worry would be…all of that makeup is going to rub off on my skirt! Yikes!

What are your thoughts on this new trend? Do you think it is a waste of time or will you try it out? Let me know in the comments below!
