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,

Hello Lovelies,

            Christmas break is one of the most popular times for vacation.  While many families try to beat the winter cold by hitting the beach, other families enjoy snow skiing or may be visiting families up north.  So how do you pack for a cold winter vacation?  Check out my perfect packing guide.

            Packing for a winter vacation can be tough.  Fitting your boots, cold weather outerwear, and clothes in one suitcase can be tricky.  So how can you narrow it down?  Pack the basics!  Black, brown, grey, and white are the first colors you should pack.  One pair of black and brown boots will last you the entire vacation.  They can be worn with any outfit!  When packing coats, think warmth and style.  Bring along you’re warmest coat and your favorite stylish coat, like a pea coat, for nights out.  You never know how cold it’s going to be!  Also, don’t forget your gloves and leg warmers!  A super cute trend this winter is legChelsea Crockett- socks and boots warmers or tall socks sticking out of the top of your boots.  Not only does it add an extra element to your outfit, but it’ll keep your legs warmer.

            If you are going on a vacation this Christmas break, have a fabulous time!  Have fun packing!

Love,

            Chelsea

            Sporting a simple holiday dress is perfect for almost any occasion.  Maroon is a gorgeous color to wear for a dress and also gives off a holiday feel.  On the right, I paired a maroon lace dress from Target with a cream infinity scarf.  Some Chelsea Crockett - Sweatergold flats or cream boots will finish off the outfit.  For a more casual outing, try out a black blazer.  This can be paired with a red infinity scarf or a chunky necklace.  You can also wear a red peplum or some fun patterned pants to spice up your outfit.  Throw on some heels or boots to tie your get-up together.

During these frigid winter months, you pretty much live in a coat. Since your coat is your constant companion, you need to make sure that it flatters your figure so you can look fierce even when it is frigid outside! Here is a guide to which coats flatter your body type!

 Athletic/hourglass figure:

A fit-and-flare coat is your best bet when you have an hourglass figure! Fit and flare coats accentuate your small waist and hide pesky hips. Try coats with belts, they cinch your waist and accent your figure!

Curvy:

For you curvylicious ladies, fitted coats with oversized collars are key. The collar draws attention to your face! Try a coat with a nice statement collar.  Also, coats with subtle ruffles are a good choice. Pretty, short coats are your cup of tea!coat

 Petite:

Choose a jacket that hits at your hipbone, because if the coat is too long it can overwhelm your small frame! The wrong coat style can swallow your petite figure up and make you look shapeless! We DON’T want that! For a coat that’s short but still super-warm, choose a heavy parka or thick puffer coat.

 

Stay warm, Insiders!

XOXO, Chels

Hi Insiders,

            Pastel colors have been making a name for themselves this winter.  What once used to be only for spring is now making its way to the colder months.  Although a full on pastel outfit probably isn’t the best way to style this trend, there are a few great ways to incorporate these soft colors in your everyday winter wardrobe.

            Mint green and light pink are two of my favorite pastel colors right now.  The mint green is especially good for winter. Adding fun pastel colored accessories to your wardrobe is a great way to change things up.  Try wearing a soft colored chunky necklace with a cream or grey sweater.  Even try throwing on a light pink cross body with your winter pea coat.  Another great way to add a little pastel to your outfit is to wear a subtle pair of pastel studs.  This will add a touch of color toChelsea Crockett- pastel outfit any outfit.

            If you’re willing to be a little more daring, try a mint green dress!  Pair it with black or nude tights and a cardigan.  Even throw on a light colored sweater with cream skinny pants.  These outfits will really standout against the white winter snow!  If you’re going to be outside for a while throw on a pastel scarf, hat, or ear warmer.  There’s nothing cuter than fashionable winter gear!  If you’re wearing a pastel outfit and want to add jewelry, pearls are the way to go!  You don’t want to add bold metal jewelry to soft-toned colors.  Keep it light!  Don’t be afraid to incorporate some of your spring items into your winter wardrobe.  You never know when you’ll inspire someone else to change up their look!

Love,

            Chelsea

            Hey girls!

            It’s half-way through November, crazy right?  This month has flown by and December is creeping up faster than we know it!  I know I’m not the only one counting down the days till Christmas and school break.  One of my favorite things about this holiday season are the Christmas parties, gift-exchanges, and family gatherings.  We all know it’s true, every girl has trouble finding the perfect party dress.  So, here’s my guide on finding the perfect holiday party dress!Chelsea Crockett - Holiday Dresses

  1. Lace is one of those everlasting trends that you can’t go wrong with.  Try finding a dress or shirt that features lacey sleeves or accents.
  2. You’ll always be sure to stand out if you rock a little sparkle.  If you go the shimmery route, make sure you keep it balanced.  Too much shine can be overbearing, so keep it at a good amount.
  3. Try sporting holiday colors.  Navy blues, dark reds, and neutrals give off a great feel of the season.
  4. Add some accessories!  Chunky necklaces are super in right now and go great with a lace dress.  Also, don’t be afraid to break out the heels and wedges to dress up your outfit.

                                                        Happy holidays!

            Hey insiders!

            As seasons change, so does our wardrobe.  This time of year, the weather gets cooler which causes us to pull out our scarves and sweaters.  Recently, I’ve seen many popular and stylish accessory trends spread throughout magazines, fashion websites, and even at schools worn by kids and teens.

           Chelsea Crockett - Fall Accessories Hats are accessories that can be rocked in any season, but there are a couple ones that are necessities to have during this time of year.  Beanies are casual, cute, and can be worn to all your fall events such as bonfires, football games, etc.  Whether they’re fitting to your head or hang off the back, you can style your beanie however you prefer!

            Since most schools don’t allow hats, teens have to find other fun ways to accessorize and show their individuality.  Scarves are the perfect way to do so.  With all their fun colors, patterns, and styles you can add some color to your outfit.  In case you don’t know, infinity scarves are definitely a popular trend.  Because they don’t have an end, you simply wrap them around your neck two to three times and you’re set!

            Lastly, it’s time to pull out your autumn handbags!  Colors such as browns, yellows, tans, and oranges look great on purses during this time of year.  Of course, you can change up your look with crossbody bags, hobo bags, or shoulder bags.    

            So as you see the colors of the leaves start to change, it’s time to show off these trends!

             Hey girls!

            Just as trends come and go, so do colors, and knowing when to break them out is tough.  For example, wearing white shoes, pants, or handbags after Labor Day and before Memorial Day is a fashion “don’t.”  So, what colors pop during autumn?  Keep reading to find out!

            You probably guessed it, but what color is better to sport during fall than orange?  Wearing an orange shirt and pairing it with neutral colored shoes and a cute handbag is a perfect casual outfit for a day at the mall.  Not a fan of orange?  Try out red or yellow.  These shades are similar to orange aChelsea Crockett - Fall Outfit - Fall Colorsnd still give off an autumn feel. 

            Another color that’s a fall favorite is chocolate brown.  The perfect brown accessory is a purse.  This matches almost any outfit you want to throw on.  It complements orange, red, and yellow perfectly, yet doesn’t take the focus away from your bright autumn shades.

            As I’ve stated before, plaid is back!  Although it’s a pattern, not a color, plaid has made a comeback and looks great as an oversized button-up.  Rock this look with leggings and boots or flats.   

            If you’re one who follows the Labor Day rule, then you’ll need a white substitute.  Cream, ivory, nude, or even a light, rosy pink will do the job.  These colors can fill in for your white accessories you put away for fall.

                                                Hope this helped! – Chels

            What’s up insiders?

            Beanie hats are not only good for keeping you warm, but also for making a look go from ordinary to trendy.  You may assume you just throw on one of these and you’re set, but first you should probably read up on your “Beanie 101”WinkChelsea Crockett - Beanies

            If you’re looking for a more edgy outfit, a black or grey beanie is the perfect accessory.  Although plain, solid-colored beanies will work, try finding one with a cool logo or emblem on the front.  This will look better when you pair your hat with skinny jeans and a leather jacket.  Also, throw on some combat boots and a concert tee.  This will give you the street look that’s a definite “in” in Hollywood right now.

            As for more of a sweet, girly look, find a light, pastel colored beanie.  These are a super cute accessory to pair with an oversized sweater and leggings.  Get out your boots and a cross-over purse to finish up a casual, yet stylish outfit. 

            Most of the time, I see most trend-setters rocking an over-sized beanie and slouching it towards the back of their head.  If you’d rather find a more fitting one to wear normally on the top of your head, that’s perfectly fine!  Don’t be afraid to make the style your own!  That’s what fashion’s all about, isn’t it?

                                                                XOXO,

            Hey girls!

            Shimmering shoes are a definite “in” this fall.  Every outfit can use a little extra shine to make it go from ordinary to exceptional.  Not just shimmering, but metallic kicks are a way to spice up your look.  Silver shoes are super chic and perfect for balancing an attention-catching yet subtle feel to your outfit.

            Chelsea Crockett - Silver ShoesIf you have a dance approaching, a perfect way to complement your dress is with silver heels.  Tying your outfit together with a metallic, silver belt will bring out the chicness of your stylish look. 

            Not only does this trend have to be for formal outings, but casual events, too!  Shining silver flats are a great way to complement a denim.  So make sure you grab your jeans or denim button up and rock it with a pair of metallic flats.  These shoes aren’t only for denim, but almost any autumn outfit you want to try out this season.

            Although this post is mainly about shoes, shimmering purses are also a cute trend this time of year.  And hey, maybe if you’re a true fashionista, you can rock both accessories at the same timeJ!

                                                Good luck!

How to Rock a Floral Dress in the Fall

Hello Girls!

            I’m sure when you think of a floral dress you think of the spring or summer.  I do too!  Well, floral dresses are all the rage this fall.  Although it may be a little chilly at times, there are a few ways to put a classic twist on a floral print dress to make it a ready to wear fall dress.ChelseaCrockett- floral dress + boots

            A great way to transition a floral dress to the fall is to throw on a pair of leather combat boots.  This will tone down the “girliness” and give it an edgy feel.  If you’re wearing dark jewel tones like ruby red, maroon, or plum purple, go for a dark brown boot.  If you are wearing a shade of blue, grey, or green, pick a black leather boot!  Lace them up and you’re good to go!

            Since it’s fall, closed toed shoes are a must.  Oxford flats look awesome with a girly dress since it gives it a masculine flare.  Also, try pairing your dress with a jean, leather, or cloth jacket to keep warm in the chilly fall air.  Don’t be afraid to throw on a jacket with some embellishments or studs.  This can only take your outfit to the next level and who wouldn’t want that?  Another great way to keep warm is to throw on an over-sized sweater over the dress.  This will make the dress appear to be a skirt, but in an extremely fashionable way.  Have fun incorporating your spring and summer clothes into Chelsea Crockett- floral dressthe fall.  Comment below if you have any other suggestions!

Love you all,

Hey insiders! 

            Since fall’s almost here, it’s time to break out your pants and pack up your shorts.  As autumn’s cool months roll in, you’ll be seeing everything from patterned leggings to colorful jeans.

            First, I want to talk all about jeans.  Not just denim, but solids, stripes, polka dots, and lots more.  Solid colored jeans are my favorite because they’re super cute, but still extremely casual.  You can wear these to school without being too “dressed up” but still catch other’s attention with your fashionable outfitWink.  Pair them with a matching scarf and you’re set!  Check them out here:http://tiny.cc/ColoredJeans!Chelsea Crockett - Patterned Jeans

            Another popular trend that I see repeat almost every fall, is patterned jeans.  I love, love, love fun patterns and colors so you can guess I own a pair or two of these!  A few hot patterns are floral, striped, plaid, and printed.  Some are extra creative and add studs or even lace!      

            Of course, I can’t forget leggings.  One of my favorite things about fall are big, over-sized sweaters.  Wearing a cute pair of leggings is a great idea to pair with those comfy sweaters.  Just like jeans, you can find solid colored or printed leggings!  They even have galaxy and cross printed ones!     

            Hope this gives you a little help to prepare for fall!
