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!

Celebrities are the ones who start the trends and spread them throughout the media, magazines, and online world. Some fashion-minded celebs have even set their minds to starting their own clothing line! I have three in particular that the spotlight has been on recently as well as throughout the years!

Kate Hudson has recently launched her new “Fabletics” line and I’m in love! The brand offers all things exercise. Running tanks, yoga capris, and comfy sports bras are only a small portion of the line. You can get fun patterns or solid colors, whatever style you like best! If you’re interested, sign up for the Fabletics VIP membership and get your first outfit for only $25!Chelsea Crockett - Fabletics

Kendall and Kylie Jenner are fashion icons for their millions of followers. Their line at PacSun offers a unique style with comfy or dressy options to choose from! From suede skirts to cropped tanks, you can without-a-doubt find something to suit your style. A lot of the line has a Boho feel to it and is perfect to rock during the warm months!

Jessica Simpson’s clothing brand has been around for years, but her line can still be greatly appreciated! Not only does it offer stylish clothes, but shoes, purses, jewelry, swimsuits, and sunglasses as well! My favorite parts of her brand are definitely the shoes and purses. They’re always up-to-date with the latest fashions and trends!

Which brand is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

Everywhere I turn, swimsuits are being advertised in every store, magazine, and website! That officially means goodbye to winter and hello to warm weather! There are tons of different styles to choose from, but there are three that are at the top of the charts for summer 2016!

High neck swimsuits are super stylish and comfortable! When I first saw this type of suit, I was worried about tan lines and how it would look after a long day in the sun. Instead, I bought one for nightChelsea Crockett - Triangl swims, waterparks, or hot tub nights! They’re more secure and comfortable then a normal bikini which is perfect for a day on waterslides.

I’ve recently been seeing a lot of different fabrics of swimsuits, and they’re so cute! Some stores have been selling crocheted bikini tops or wetsuit material sets. They’re different than the basic bikini! The brand Triangl is known for their unique material used in making their swimsuits (like the ones on the left!). They resemble a wetsuit so they’re stretchy and flexible!

I love wearing one-pieces. A lot of the time, they’re my go-to swimwear! They’re easy, comfy, and give off a modest look. A lot of one-pieces have a fun twist to them, maybe it’s a unique pattern, cutouts, or the type of material. All you have to do is look for one that’s your style! Once I found some that worked for me, I fell in love with one-pieces!

How to Walk in Heels: Chelsea Edition

I am always amazed at women who can walk effortlessly in heels. Like, they just glide across the floor like they aren’t wearing 6 inch spikes on their feet. How…

I am always amazed at women who can walk effortlessly in heels. Like, they just glide across the floor like they aren’t wearing 6 inch spikes on their feet. How do they do that?! Well, with prom around the corner, I see lots of high-heel-wearing in my future, so I thought it would be good for all of us to take a crash course in how to walk in heels.

  1. Start small: 6 inch heels are not a beginners dose of heel! Start with something small and then work your way up. This is the key to learning how to walk in heels, start with something that is easy and it will become natural to you.
  2. Make sure the shoe fits perfectly: It is a million times easier to walk in heels when they actually fit. If they are too small, your toes get smushed every time you take a step, and if they are too big your heel slips out every time you lift your foot off of the ground. Both are not good! You could seriously injure your toes or twist your ankle. If your shoe fits but you are still having a tough time keeping it on, there are heel grips you can buy to help you out!FullSizeRender (43)
  3. Place your heel on the ground first: Heels force you to walk differently. When you wear heels, make sure you put your heel on the ground first before the pad of your foot, so walk heel to toe. Walking like you normally would, by just simply placing your whole foot flat on the ground, is uncomfortable and awkward in heels!
  4. Small steps: You need to take smaller steps when you wear heels. Walking your normal stride is not going to be easy in them, and it will probably feel a bit awkward. Take small, lady-like steps, don’t try to power walk, and practice in the mirror to see what looks best!
  5. Don’t push it: If walking in heels is painful for you, or if you just don’t like it, don’t do it! Don’t feel like you have to wear heels to look “like a lady”, if they hurt you or if they just aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other shoe types that look just as good!

Happy heel-wearing!

XOXO, Chels

4 Steps to Rocking Boho Accessories

If you’ve seen pictures of over-accessorized wrists and hands with indie styled jewelry, then we’re already on the same page! The picture above shows someone rocking the boho styled accessory look. There are four main steps to complete this trend yourself. Keep reading to find out how you can achieve it, too :)!

  1. Boho styled outfits usually incorporate subtle or neutral tones. Paint your nails a color that go along with this color scheme and match the jewelry you’re going to pair with it. I love how the girl on the right went with white nails to compliment her silver jewelry. Try it out!Chelsea Crockett - Boho Accessories
  2. Next come the rings. Whatever color you choose for your jewelry, it all needs to match. If you go all gold, keep the gold color scheme. Same with silver, rose gold, etc. Layer different styled rings with a variety of jewels and shapes.
  3. After you have your rings, find some bangle bracelets to go with them. Alex and Ani is known for their bangles and are perfect for layering.
  4. The last step is optional and only adds to the boho, indie theme! Metallic tattoos such as the ones above are fun to try out! They remind me of Henna tattoos but are easier to get off and much less expensive. You can find them at a variety of different stores such as Topshop, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, etc.

Let me know if you like the look as well!

Spring is amongst us! And with spring comes warm weather, flowers, and lots of new fashion trends! From the recent fashion weeks, I’ve witnessed trends that are about to make their mark in the upcoming season. Here are the ones you need to keep an eye out for!

  • Shoulder cutouts in shirts have come up in magazines and on fashion blogs more and more frequently. These type of shirts are perfect for spring and the warm weather approaching!Chelsea Crockett - Skirt Wrap
  • Wrapped skirts, like the picture on the right for example, are super stylish and aren’t the usual look that you’d expect for a skirt. They have a more unique look to them than just a basic skirt or dress.
  • Bright patterns and colors always make their way back into the fashion world starting in the spring. According to past fashion weeks, stripes especially will be in almost every store this season!
  • Victorian-inspired styles such as floral patterns and high-collar necklines are super cute and can bring a uniqueness to your outfit. Ruffles, too, are part of the Victorian style and are supposed to make a comeback this season!
  • Unique necklines, such as the high-collar neckline mentioned above, are fun to experiment with! An X-crossed neckline goes hand-in-hand with the shoulder cutouts trend. Check it out!

What trend will you be rocking this upcoming season? Let me know in the comments below!

It’s the week after Coachella and everyone who went (or just saw the Snapchat story!) is having Coachella withdrawals. Thousands of festival-goers including celebrities, famous bands, DJs, fans, and tons more attended the massive, weekend-long event. It’s also known for the crazy stylish fashion trends that spread on social media! Here are a few of my faves :).

So if you haven’t noticed, the Coachella style is super indie and boho. Chelsea Crockett - Layered RingsOne of the big trends I noticed was all kinds of layered jewelry. I think the cutest was the layered rings like the picture on the right. This picture was uploaded on supermodel Gigi Hadid’s Instagram and it’s safe to say I’m obsessed! There’s also tons of pics of layered necklaces and bracelets… So cute!

Another jewelry related trend is metallic bracelet tattoos. You might be thinking “whaaaat?” but I promise they’re so fun to wear! You can find them online (click here!) or at Forever 21 and other chain stores. They stay on for a few days, even through showers (and you don’t have to worry about remembering to put on jewelry every day!).

Wearing a kimono cardigan is one of my favorite ways to spice up an outfit. Now they have ones that go down to your ankles! They’re SO fashionable and give off an indie vibe. My favorite way to rock one is wearing it with a romper and tons of layered jewelry.

Lastly, hats, hats, and more hats! Floppy hats and fedoras can make an outfit, especially a boho look. Celebrities tried out this look left and right and they all looked fab!

What would be your go-to Coachella ensemble? Hopefully I’ll see you all there one day :).

I know it’s only the end of January but with spring approaching, we all have one thing on our minds…  What will my prom dress look like this year?  As girls, we love to dress up and have that extra special night with the perfect dress, shoes, hair, and makeup!  This year is no different.  You may think it’s too early to be thinking of prom dresses, but I think Chelsea Crockett - Two Piece Prom Dressthe earlier the better! The faster you get your dress, the less you have to worry about copying someone else or duplicating their dress.

What’s nice about this year is that almost any dress will fit the fashion scene.  If you like long and straight, glittery and full, or even a two piece dress, then you are in luck.  You’ll be ready for the red carpet look.  My suggestion would be to get online and find the style you’re looking for that best fits your body type and your inner fashion style.  Many of the dresses have open backs or high neck cuts.  If you want to be the princess of the ball, perhaps a gown with sheer sequins or tiny sparkles will give you that extra feminine look.

One of the looks I love for this year is a trendy two piece gown.  Many of them have sequins and cut outs to give just the look you are going for.  I still haven’t decided which dress is my exact favorite but I can sure spend endless hours looking at beautiful dresses online and in magazines.  It’s not too early to get started!

Happy shopping! – Chelsea

Prom season is here, ladies! It’s time for prom-posals, dress shopping, and lots of excitement. Every girl wants to look their best on prom night, and the first step in doing so is finding the perfect dress! It’s harder said than done, so here are some things to considering for your prom dress search!

First, most people say you need to have an idea of what you’re looking for. Having a general idea in your head of what you like and what you don’t like can really help. Chelsea Crockett - Prom DressThere are so many styles, shapes, and colors to choose from! If you know you don’t like the look of mermaid dresses on you, don’t worry about trying those on. If you want a two-piece dress, be on the hunt for one that catches your eye. That being said, some of the best dresses are found on the spot. If you fall in love with a dress that isn’t at all what you wanted, who cares! It may not even be what you’re looking for, but those finds can often be the greatest!

Knowing what you like and what you don’t like is key. If you’re worried about pulling up your strapless dress all night, avoid trying those on! Knowing what you’ll be comfortable in is the most important thing. Also, if you know who’s in your prom group, try avoiding buying the same one (or even similar) as your friends! That can cause problems when two girls in the same group show up wearing the same dress!

Let me know how your prom search is going :)!

            New York Fashion Week F/W16 has come to an end.  The biggest models in the world and top fashion bloggers came together to celebrate all things fashion.  While some shows were full of glitter and glamour, others were just straight-up crazy!  From the world of Jeremy Scott to Oscar de la Renta gowns, this year’s fashion week was anything but ordinary.  While I did not attend, I kept up with all of the shows online!  Check out a few of my favorite moments!  Chelsea Crockett- fw16 

            Diane Von Furstenberg’s show was one of my favorites.  She nicked the traditional runway and opted for a disco of strong, powerful women.  DVF gathered the world’s top models including Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Karlie Kloss and had them dressed in her always timeless pieces dancing around her studio.  DVF wanted to show that women in power can have fun too; and don’t worry, her fun, signature patterns were still included!

            Marc Jacobs transformed a NY theatre into the Marc Jacobs F/W16 premiere!  The show was nothing short of amazing.  It included popcorn, ushers, and a movie screen showcasing Marc Jacobs signature trademark.  This was a transition for the brand with the dissolution of Marc by Marc Jacobs.  The brand was debuting their new look, while still keeping the Marc by Marc Jacobs prices.

            These two shows were just a few of my favorites from this years Fall/Winter NYFW!  Maybe next year I’ll snag a ticket! 😉

2016 Turtleneck Fashion

To the people who say that turtlenecks are totally not cute, I say think again! They keep you cozy warm in the chilly temps all while rocking a stylish fashion staple. Layer them under coats, over skirts, tucked into jeans, any way you want! Here are my 3 favorite ways to wear them this winter.

  1. Edgy and chic: If you want to try an edgy or trendy look, pair a gray turtleneck sweater with a leather jacket, some black skinnies, and black booties. The shorter length of the leather jacket will nicely contrast with the longer hem of the turtleneck, adding dimension to the outfit.FullSizeRender (32)
  2. Sweet and simple: A simple turtleneck is a very effortlessly classy look. Pair a simple, colored turtleneck with casual skinnies and flats for a sweet everyday outfit.
  3. Fun and flirty: I love this turtleneck sweater/leather skirt/plaid shirt combo. Add in tights and boots for a fun, feminine outfit for a night with the girls!

What are your thoughts on turtlenecks? Do you think they are cute, or do you think they are a thing of the past?

XOXO, Chels

Jewelry comes in all shapes and sizes… And not to forgot styles and designs!  I love the outdoors and basically anything that has to do with nature. I’ve found some brands and accessories that have a nature vibe to them for the outdoor lovers!

As I’ve written an article on them before, Alex and Ani has tons of bangle bracelets that represent almost anything including adventure, nature, life, etc.  They have bracelets with the tree of life, certain animals and their tracks, Chelsea Crockett - Change of Scenery Necklaceadventure themed symbols, and many others.  They’re so cute and you can pick from a large variety!

If you love the mountains, I found the perfect necklace on Pinterest for you! It’s called the Change of Scenery Necklace and can be found on modcloth.com. The picture on the left is a little preview for you! I’m in love with it and it’s only $15! The reviews and ratings on it are great saying that the quality is awesome for its price. For $15, why not treat yourself?

Lastly, Etsy also has a variety of nature-oriented products. I found a set of necklaces in particular that have a cool concept to them! They each have a stone with a charm hanging off of it. The charms can be seashells, starfish, doves, etc. I think they’re so cute and simple. Click here to check them out!

Boho jewelry has made its stylish statement in the fashion world as it sweeps the pages on Pinterest and appears on everyone’s Instagram feeds! On Pinterest (of course) I discovered a jewelry brand called Indie and Harper that offers a variety of necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc. I am so obsessed!Chelsea Crockett - Moon Pendant Necklace

Their necklaces are the main source of attraction to their brand. One of their most popular necklaces is the Half Moon Pendant Necklace shown on the right! It’s $35 but I think it’s totally worth it! They also have a wide variety of other designs such as a whale tail, a feather, rose quartz, etc. Most are cheaper than other jewelry brands and their quality is just as good!

If you’re more of a bracelet or ring girl, you’ll be obsessed with these too! Most of their rings are super simple, but include a cool stone or emblem! Indie and Harper is really big on stones which can be cut tiny to add some extra decoration to your ring. As far as the bracelets go, there isn’t as big of a selection but still worth a look!

If you want some earrings, anklets, or other accessories, check the website for those too!

Enjoy! – Chels

Brands that have a meaning behind them are higher in my book than brands or companies that don’t. Alex and Ani is a jewelry brand that doesn’t sell accessories for the sole purpose of looking fashionable. Although their necklaces and bracelets are totally stylish, they each have a certain meaning behind them that I wanted to tell you a little about!

To start off, their bangles are definitely the brand’s main attraction. Their original style has a main symbol that dangles from an either gold or silver bracelet. Each symbol represents three things, such as love, friendship, loyalty, adventure, etc. For example, the Path of Life Charm Bangle represents strength, motivation, and knowledge. Another one of my favorites is the Sailboat Charm Bangle which represents courage, adventure, and transition. Each bracelet comes with a little card to remember the meaning behind it!Chelsea Crockett - Alex and Ani Bangles

Apart from bangles, they also have bracelets, necklaces, earrings, scarves, handbags, etc. Since you all know I am very religious, I love the jewelry that has a cross on it. You can find one on a necklace, a bangle, or a bracelet to not only represent Christ, but life, union, and immortality as well.

Alex and Ani has an awesome meaning and concept behind them. They make for perfect gifts considering each piece is usually around $30. I highly suggest you check them out. You won’t regret it!

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
