How to Wear Silver and Gold Jewelry

Hi Girls,

            Necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are the ultimate accessory to any outfit!  They dress up any outfit and take it to the next level.  When it comes to adding these items to your look, do you pick silver or gold?  I’ll take you through a guide to picking out the perfect metallic shade for your jewelry!Chelsea Crockett-gold jewelry

            Gold jewelry looks great with deep colored tones.  Pair gold jewelry with ruby reds, plum purples, and forest greens.  These deep colors will allow the gold to really pop in the jewelry creating a statement piece!  Cream and royal blue also a great colors to pair with gold. 

              Silver jewelry can be perfectly paired with pastels and soft colors.  Silver jewelry is softer than gold jewelry, so these light shades would be over powered by the gold jewelry.  You never want your outfit to look “off”.  Adding the silver jewelry to a light colored outfit will keep your look soft, but with added sparkle!  Black and white are very special colors.  They are completely universal and go great with both silver and gold jewelry!  If you’re wearing black, pick your jewelry based on your mood.  Are you feeling rock and roll or soft and pretty?  Whatever look you’re going for, silver and gold jewelry will forever accessorize any style.

              Love,

                    Chelsea

Hi Insiders,

            With school already here, fall is quickly approaching!  Trends are rapidly changing from season to season, and an awesome item for your closet this fall is a vest.  This versatile item can be dressed up and down, and not only make you look like a fashionista, but keep you warm as well.  Check out these chic outfit ideas for adding a vest to your wardrobe. 

           Chelsea Crockett- North Face Vest A vest can be considered sporty or sleek depending on what type of vest you buy.  Different styles of vests include puffy vests, fleece vests, and fashion vests.  Puffy and fleece vests are usually considered sporty and look great paired with leggings, a sweater, and boots!  This is a great look for a casual football game or a Friday night bonfire.  Another sporty way to rock a fleece or puffy vest is to wear it over a pullover.  It’s a very athletic look that is great for outdoor activities like hiking and biking.  A great place to purchase a fleece or puffy vest is an athletic store or outdoor store like The North Face or the Alpine Shop.  Both of these looks are casual enough for school and sporty enough for energetic outdoor fun!

            A fashion vest is usually a super sleek vest with fancy zippers, pockets, and details.  A great place to find a fashion vest is J. Crew.  If you have an outlet mall near you, you may have a J. Crew Factory where these vests can be purchased for much cheaper!  These vests look great with a plaid button up, jeans, and boots!  These vests can also be paired with jewelry, so don’t be afraid to add a fun necklace or a statement watch.  It’s a dressier way to wear a vest!  Adding a fun printed sweater and thick infinity scarf can give your fashion vest a Chelsea Crockett- fashion vestwhole new look!  I encourage you to add a vest to your fall wardrobe.  Let me know below how you rock your vest!  Have fun with it!

XOXO,

            Chelsea

            Hey ladies!  One of the newest and hottest trends of the season are maxi dresses and skirts.  They seemed to have spread throughout teens and slowly replaced sundresses and short skirts. Chelsea Crockett - Maxi Dresses

            Maxi dresses are super fashionable and can be dressed up or dressed down.  Even just a day at the mall is perfect for throwing on your favorite maxi dress.  You can pair your dress with heels, wedges, or, to make it a little more casual, flats.  My favorite places to shop for maxis are Francesca’s Collections, Charlotte Russe, and, of course, Forever 21.  The best thing about shopping at these places is that they’re very affordable but still extremely cute.

            Another hot trend that I’ve, yet again, seen almost everywhere is maxi skirts.  They’re very similar to maxi dresses, but you can match it with a crop top or another cute shirt!  My favorite way to wear these are with a chunky necklace and a crop top to add to my skirt! 

                                                                  Enjoy! – Chelsea

Hi Insiders,

            If you live with a male at your house, like your dad or brother, you may notice a few items of clothing that resemble items in your closet!  Funny, right?  Back in the day, girls used to only wear dresses, but as time went by, women started wearing as they please…even clothes that resembled a man’s!  A few style staples today may resemble a man’s business attire, but they show the power of women!  Check out a few of these masculine items with a feminine flare.   Chelsea Crockett - Blazer  

  • Blazer: A blazer is an item that has become a fashion icon.  They are so easy to throw on with a white tee and a pair of jeans to dress up the look, or to wear with a dress or skirt for a more professional look.  To make a blazer more girly, add a fun broach for a little “bling” or pair with a really feminine outfit.
  • Over-sized men’s t-shirts:  This year it’s been all about the street style, “grungy” look.  An over-sized tee is so easy to throw on with a pair of skinny jeans and hit the road!
  • Neck scarf: Comparable to a man’s’ tie, a neck scarf can add a pop of color to any look!  Wear it like a scarf or tie it in a pretty bow for a fun accent.
  • Oxford shoes: Celebrities like Taylor Swift are all for a good pair of Oxford shoes.  They are a timeless look that looks great paired with jeans or a fun nautical look.  They give any girly look a slight masculine flare.

Next time you get dressed up for an event, check out what the men are wearing.  Maybe you can come up with a masculine look with a girly twist!

Wanna know what the fall 2013 hair trends are? Good, cuz I am about to tell you!

Messy Beach Bun: These buns look effortless and wind-blown! You can achieve this look by sectioning off the hair in front of your head (where your bangs would be) and pulling the rest of your hair up into a ponytail just below the crown. Twist the pony into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. Next, curl the hair in the front loosely and then randomly pin them around the bun in the back.chelsea crockett messy bun

Upside Down French Braid: I am in love with this trend! It is so stinkin cute. It is not as hard as it looks! Just flip your head upside down and start the braid at the nape of your neck. Braid it until you get to your crown. Gather the rest of your hair and combine it all into a ponytail. Wrap the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Viola!upside down french braid chelsea crockett

Braided Headband: This style is so classy! How do you do it? First, part your hair down the middle. Then make a small braid on each ear starting behind each ear. Pull them over each other and pin them tightly against the top of the head.chelsea crockett braided headband

I hope these work for ya!

I am quite the shoe-aholic. I love shoes! Fall 2013 has some killer shoe trends coming our way, and I am going to go over them with you!

 

Formal: If you are headed to a fancy or formal event, I suggest you reach for a pair of Mary Jane pumps or some wedges. Mary Janes are a very classy, vintage looking shoe! Wedges go with almost anything and give you a little bit of height as well!chelsea crockett wedges

 Semi-formal/ Casual: A shoe that I love for any casual occasion is the Oxford shoe. They add a little bit of a vintage feel to any ensemble. Another shoe that I see being very big this fall is the wedge booty. They are super cute and dress your outfit up a bit! They are super versatile!

Every-day Wear: For your every-day shoe, Sperrys or Keds are always a good choice! They are cute, comfortable, and go with almost anything! Taylor Swift even has her own line of Keds that feature super cute patterns.

So there you go! You are now in the loop about the fall 2013 shoe trends.

Fall 2013 is fast approaching, and I am here to arm you with some very important knowledge: the do’s and don’ts of fall 2013 fashion!

DO:  Reach for eye catching outerwear! Use it to make a statement! Don’t be afraid to try different colors, textures, or lengths. When rocking a bold jacket, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple.

DON’T: Bail on the peplum just yet! If you haven’t already hopped on this trend train, I suggest you do! Find the right peplum for you, whether it is placed on a dress, shirt, or skirt. Don’t underestimate how flattering peplums can be! They define your waist and give you added curv

DO: Get on board with the military-inspired trend! Army green is going to find its way into your wardrobe this fall. Combat boots and double

DON’T: Shy away from layering! Add some oomf to your outfit by piling on a few extra pieces! But make sure not to go crazy and mix too many colors or patterns when layering. An ensemble with many pieces should flow! breasted jackets are going to be the go-to fashion statement!

Keep these tips in mind when picking out your outfits this fall!

According to Glamour magazine, full skirts are coming back, and I cannot help but agree! Full skirts are a classic fashion statement.

Wearing a full skirt makes you look like you have an itty bitty waist! How? The skirt is fitted closely around the waist and then flairs out as it comes to your knees. Full skirts are almost universally flattering because they define the waist, and make it seem small by comparison. They also give you a classic, vintage look. Full skirts never really went out of style, they were just pushed to the side to make room for newer styles such as the pencil

 skirt. Full skirts give you a feminine, romantic feel. They are also super fun to wear because they swish and sway when you walk! When I am wearing a full skirt I like to spin around and feel the skirt fly around me. When wearing a full skirt, if it was made with a 

plain fabric, pair it with a patterned blouse! Add some chunky statement jewelry and some retro sunglasses and you will rock the look!

Looking for a vintage, classic, flattering look? Try on a full skirt, you will fall in love just like I did!

            Hey darlings!  Blazers are one of my favorite articles of clothing that give off a sophisticated feel to your outfit.  They can be dressed up or even dressed down.  Finding a perfect outfit to pair with your blazer isn’t hard at all with a few helpful pointers!

  1. Throw on a blazer with your favorite pair of colored skinny jeans.  Adding a pop of color to any outfit is nice, but pairing them with a black blazer looks even better.  Although sophisticated, it still gives off a fun, young feel.Chelsea Crockett - Blazer w scarf
  2. Try adding a scarf!  Whether it’s colorful or black and white, adding this creates an older look and makes you look even classierWink.
  3. Crop tops!  Surprisingly, crop tops work with almost anything.  They provide a sleek look to your blazer and bring a chic and edgy feel to your outfit, as well.
  4. Last but not least, try pulling off a modern look.  Simply pairing your black blazer with jeans and a gray tee is super cute and easy.  Not to mention it’s also very casual so you can wear it almost anywhere!  Dress it up with heels or dress it down with flats, whatever works!

         There you go!  Grab a blazer here and start rocking your new looks!

Hi Lovelies,

            So I’m sure that many of you have school uniforms, especially if you go to a private school.  Even public schools have restrictions on what you can wear.  Sometimes it can be hard to show your individuality and express yourself through your fashion and style in a school setting.  I’ll give you a quick guide to bring your own style to school, without breaking dress code.

  • Have fun school accessories!  A fun backpack is a stylish way to carry your books.  Pick up a fun colored or printed backpack, like cheetah and carry your books in style!  It’ll also add a pop of color to even the dullest outfit.
  • Throw on an awesome pair of shoes!  Sandals and boots are my favorite shoes around.  They come in every style and color and some are even “blinged” out.  Everyone will be impressed with your new kicks!
  • Bling yourself out!  Don’t be afraid to throw on a pretty necklace and some crazy earrings to dress up your dull school uniform.  You canChelsea Crockett- backpack never go wrong with jewelry!

Throwing on a scarf can add a pop of color too!

            Hey everyone!  Because they’re cool, stylish, and easy to throw on, sandals are my favorite shoes for the summer.  You can wear them to the beach or out to a nice dinner.  With their interchangeable patterns and styles, you can be sure to find a pair to match any outfit.

           Chelsea Crockett - Sandals One of my favorite type of sandal is the T-strap.  Whether you have on a sundress or shorts, you can throw on a pair to complete your look!  T-strap sandals have an enormous variety of styles from sparkles and rhinestones to a simple plain color.

            If you’re going out for the night or to a special occasion, buy a fun pair of sandal heels or wedges.  These will be sure to catch people’s attention and turn their heads.  If your feet get sore easily, throw an extra pair of flats in your bag just in caseWink.

            And of course you can’t forget the flip flops.  I wear flip flops almost everywhere throughout the summer.  They’re super comfortable and casual.  They are perfect for the pool or just running errands!

            There are still so many more types of sandals to try out this summer.   Enjoy!

Hey Insiders!

I love shoes. They can take an outfit from being just average to being jaw dropping. They put the finishing touches on any ensemble. Today we are going to take a look at what summer shoes are a must for any wardrobe.

     Flip Flops:

Flip flops come in so many different colors and styles that you are bound to find at least one pair that you fall in love with and that goes with everything. Whether they are silver and sparkly or neon pink with studs, you can always find a pair that suits you. Flip flops are also super comfy.  They are usually cheap, too, so you can buy a pair for every outfit 😉 Collage

     Wedges:

Wedges add class to any ensemble. They come in all heights and styles! You can get anything from peep toed to strappy sandal-like wedges. They come in anything from tribal prints to sweet pastel colors. Pair these with a cute sundress or summer skirt

Wedges1

 Strappy Sandals:

These are a good step between casual sandals and formal wedges. They can be worn to anything from school to church to a day out with friends. I especially love the sandals that have a little strap over your toe.They are unique and make a statement! Strappy sandals are a practical, comfortable choice of shoe for the summer time. They can be worn at both casual and classy events. Collage1

Your shoes tell people about you. They can be a way to express your personal style and personality. 

Strut your stuff, ladies!
