What’s Your Best Color?

             So, you have blonde hair and pale skin.  You love how some colors look on you and hate others.  Why is that?  Well, everyone has certain colors that look best on them based off their skin tone and hair color.  Everyone is different, so choosing the right colors is important for a killer outfit!

            Having blonde hair usually means you have lighter skin, which calls for special color choices.  If you have blue eyes, then definitely go for a royal or icy blue.  This will really highlight your eyes without making you look washed out.  Pink and green are also complementary colors for blonde haired people.  Pink will give you that “cool” complexion, while green enhances gold hues in your hair.  Last, nudes, neutrals, and silver are also a safe bet for blondes.  These colors add warmth to your complexion making you appear to be tanner than you are.Chelsea Crockett- neutral colors

            Deep and bold toned colors are best for brunettes.  Since brunettes typically have a more olive or tanner complexion, it’s easier to pull off bold colors.  The true winners for brunettes are red, orange, and jewel-toned colors such as plum, ruby, emerald green, and gold.  All of these colors highlight the dark tones in your hair and can pull out red hues if you happen to have a red tint in your hair, such as auburn.  All of these colors complement your skin tone and hair color at once. 

            If you have red hair, make sure to avoid red, yellow, and orange in your wardrobe.  These color choices would be overkill for your complexion giving it a reddish tint.  Instead go for greens, navy blue, lavender, and shades of brown.  These colors will complement your skin tone, keeping your skin from looking red.  For a burst of color try turquoise to really bring out your red hair.

            Knowing how to work your hair color and skin tone are important for a to-die-for look.  Next time you’re out shopping, keep an eye out for these specific colors!

Love,

Hello Ladies,

            Hello 2014!  It’s time for certain fashion staples to make way for the newest fashion and beauty trends on the block.  From fashion pieces from the past making a comeback to bold makeup looks, 2014 will be an exciting year in the fashion world!  So start making space in your closet for the newest fashion trends…check it out!

Chelsea Crockett- boho fringeBoho, otherwise known as Bohemian, is becoming a huge style!  It has sort of a hippie vibe, full of lace dresses, flowers, and strappy sandals.  Two of the biggest trends this year are part of the Boho look.  Circle sunglasses and fringe will be a style staple this summer.  Try pairing a tank with fringe at the bottom with high-waisted shorts or a fringed sheer cardigan with a tank and skinny jeans.  Add circle sunglasses to any look for instant Bohemian style!

Two more trends to look out for this year are midi dresses and bold brows.  Celebs like Lily Collins and Cara Delevingne have inspired bold brows with their signature look.  Try fillingChelsea Crockett- bold brows in your brows with a dark or light brown eye shadow to make them darker.  This will make your eye brows appear larger and bolder.  Do not fill them in with a pencil or try to make them larger.  Use a powdered eye shadow for a natural look.  If you’re looking to change-up your dress scene, try a midi!  It’s a mix between a mini and maxi dress and usually reaches the middle of your shins.  You can find these in a tight formal look or sun dress type.  Either way, a midi dress can be worn for almost any occasion!  Get ahead of your friends and jump on board with the hottest trends this year!

 

Happy New Year!

How to Rock Old School Styles!

Hi Girls,

            Have you ever looked through magazines or watched a movie from the 60’s or 70’s and thought “Hmmmm I wear that now?”  Well, that’s because trends are ever-changing.  Clothes and hairstyles that your mom or grandma used to wear are making a comeback!  Crazy, right?  So how do you pull of these dated styles in the new millennium?  Here are a few tricks and tips to rock that old school style.Chelsea Crockett- winged eyeliner

            Winged eyeliner has been one of the biggest makeup staples throughout every generation.  It’s such a classic look, but is often applied wrong.  Start by using liquid eyeliner.  Apply your top eyeliner as you normally would, a thin straight line.  At the end of your eye, go over the line multiple times with the liner.  Keep doing this until you have achieved the thickness that you like.  Don’t go overboard though!  Another makeup trend making its way back is red lipstick.  Celebs like Taylor Swift have made red lipstick the new “it” look.  Be daring a pair it with your normal everyday outfit.  This bold color takes any look to the next level.  Try a darker red for the winter and a lighter or orange red for the warmer months.  It’s such a classic!

Believe it or not, peplums and high-waisted shorts/pants have made the ultimate comeback.  Ask your mom, I bet she wore them in the 80’s!  They are two of today’s biggest trends.  Wear your peplum with a pair of skinny’s or a pencil skirt.  The ruffle adds a girly touch to almost anything!  Try out your high-waisted shorts with a crop top or tucked in concert tee.  You’ll really be channeling the 80’s!  Take a look back at old pictures, magazines, and movies.  You may pick up on an old style trend that you can start back up again.  Be a trend setter!

You may have heard of, or even tried, the boho chic style I’ve mentioned in a couple other articles.  If you’re in love with the boho style, just like I am :), you should try out another similar style called indie, or indie rock!  Here are a few tips on how to achieve your look.

Chelsea Crockett - Layering BraceletsThe first step to a perfect outfit is always accessorizing, which is exactly what Indie fashion is about.  Fun, colorful bracelets, like the ones on the left, show the perfect example of how to display your jewelry.  If you’re feeling extra trendy, add in a flowery or lace headband!

As far as shirts go, if you have an oversized graphic or concert tee wear it!  Also, try to stick with subtle colors such as tan, black, yellow, navy, maroon, etc.  Or… you can rock lace, flowers, or anything that gives off a hipster kind of feel.  Tribal patterns, floral prints, and denim are perfect to tie your outfit together.  Avoid neon colors or anything too bright.  It’s all about being subtle and edgy.  This style is perfect for the warm months ahead.  Chic dresses, denim shorts, and retro skirts will be sure to catch peoples’ attention this spring :)!

The Tomboy Trend: How to Still Look Girly

Hi Insiders,             Nothing says comfy-cozy like throwing on an over-sized tee and a pair of sneakers.  Lucky for you, the tomboy trend has been seen all over the streets…

Hi Insiders,

            Nothing says comfy-cozy like throwing on an over-sized tee and a pair of sneakers.  Lucky for you, the tomboy trend has been seen all over the streets of NYC and LA and is totally acceptable to rock!  So what if you want to try the trend, but are afraid of looking too much like a boy?  Follow a few of my simple tips to give the tomboy look a girly flare.

The tomboy trend focuses on over-sized clothing, comfortable shoes, and messy hair.  Although it may sound impossible, it IS possible to make this look girly.  Instead of wearing an over-sized tee, try an over-sized sweater instead.  A sweater instantly takes the look from masculine to feminine.  Go for a sweater that hit below the waist, it should not be form fitting.  If you’re not one to wear baggy pants, then leggings are always a great option.  Add your favorite pair of sneakers and a ball cap and your tomboy outfit is complete! Chelsea Crockett- tomboy look

Another great tomboy look is skinny ripped jeans with a tee and open flannel.  It’s a really simple look that I’m sure you can find in your closet already! Don’t afraid to add a pair of stud earrings for a little more added girliness.  Take advantage of this comfy trend while it is popular!  Trends are always changing!

Love,

Chelsea

Shorts and a shirt combined…talk about the easiest outfit ever!  The romper came about as an easier alternative to a dress.  It’s easy to throw on and you never have to worry about someone seeing up it or the wind picking it up like a dress!  It’s the hottest, easiest, most stylish outfit choice on the market!

There are 2 different kinds of rompers: short and long.  Short rompers look like shorts and long rompers look like pants.  Both have either a long sleeve or short sleeve top attached.  The best part about rompers is that they can be dressed up or down and worn in any season.  For a casual look, try throwing on a simple romper with a pair of sandals, basic biker jacket, and a few accessories.  You can even wear a fedora to spice up your look a bit!  This look can be worn to almost anything…except something fancy of course!  They are also perfect as swimsuit cover-ups!Chelsea Crockett- pant romper  If you’re looking to dress up your romper, go for a romper with embellishments or details, or a simple black.  If you choose a short romper, pair it with your favorite heels, a statement necklace, a blazer, and a clutch.  If you choose to wear a long romper, ditch the blazer and opt for extra accessories.  Both looks are so chic and are perfect for a night out!

Whether you’re going to the beach, joining your girlfriends for lunch, or hitting the town, a romper is the perfect route to go!  You’ll never have to worry about matching your shirt and pants ever again!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Spring is one of the prettiest times of the year! All around you, flowers are starting to appear! Flowers are not only gorgeous and a perfect gift, but a fashion statement as well. What better time to rock some sunflowers than spring?Chelsea Crockett - Floral Necklace

If you’ve checked out the latest issues of fashion magazines, you have seen all the popular trends that involve floral jewelry. Chunky necklaces, like the one on the right, are super cute and classy.  To check out some of these necklaces, click here!  Other accessories, such as earrings and bracelets, are just as stylish. It totally fits the mood of spring!

Chelsea Crockett - Flower BraidOther accessories can be found right outside your front door :)! I know a lot of us have tumblrs, and I’ve seen this on my feed many times. Go outside and pick out some flowers, depending on how long your hair is. Then braid, or fishtail, your hair. After your hair is in a nice (or messy!) braid, put the flowers randomly throughout your hair. Look at the pictures on the left for example, so creative!

To state the most obvious trend for spring is the floral pattern. This pattern is cute on almost any article of clothing. My favorite place to see this design is on simple sundresses! They’re perfect for a day out shopping or lunch with your friends!

Happy spring! – Chels

Whether you’re graduating middle school, high school, or college, graduation is right around the corner!  With so many eyes on you and hundreds of pictures being taken, it’s important to have the right outfit.  It’s time to find the perfect graduation look!

Graduation is a very important event, therefore go for a dress.  When shopping for a dress, avoid anything strapless.  Go for a dress with straps and one you will be comfortable in.  Graduation Chelsea Crockett- graduation dressceremonies usually last a long time, so you do not want to constantly be pulling up your dress, especially in front of your principals and family members.  Since the weather will be transitioning from spring to summer, go for a fun colored flowy dress as well!  You don’t want to look too business professional, so opt for a dress right above the knee with a bright color or pattern!

Walking across the stage at graduation can be nerve racking, so don’t wear 6 inch heels.  Instead, go for a wedge.  Wedge heels have more support and are easier to walk in!  If you’re still worried about falling, try finding heels that have an ankle strap.  This will prevent your feet from sliding around in your shoe.

Happy Graduation!

           One of my favorite spring trends is pastel colors.  They’re classy, elegant, and timeless! Chelsea Crockett - Pretty Pastels

            Pastel dresses are perfect for almost any occasion.  A picnic in the park, a first date, or church on Sunday morning are all opportunities to rock your favorite spring dress.  Light pink, baby blue, or even a mint green look great with some white sandals and a bright handbag!

When you clean out your closet for the incoming seasons, don’t think too fast about tossing out your sweaters.  You can find super cute crop sweaters in different patterned or solid pastels at almost any store.  Putting together a crop sweater and a skirt or shorts is the perfect combination!

Besides sweaters and dresses, pastel handbags are stylish and just as elegant!  Although they’re a lighter shade, they can still add a pop of color to a neutral outfit.  Don’t be afraid to put a pastel shade on your nails as well!

Say good bye to winter and hello to spring!

Another love of mine is online shopping. How awesome is it that I don’t have to get off my couch to shop till I drop? Today I am going to tell you my favorite online shopping sites, and the pros and cons of each.

161

Sammydress.com

  • Pro: This website seriously has everything. You can find everything from phone cases, to shoes, to the cutest sundresses you will ever find. They have an amazing selection of everything, and it is all so cheap! Their jewelry starts at $1.00 and goes to about $4.00. Their shirts are super cheap too! Most of them are between $4-8.
  • Con: The shipping! Because they are located in China, the shipping is not cheap and it takes a long time for your package to arrive.

151

Urbanog.com

  • Pro: They have such adorable stuff! I mostly go there for the shoes, but they also have a pretty awesome selection of clothes. But more on the shoes, I have bought three pairs from them already, and I plan purchasing more soon! They have an incredible selection of boots, sandals , flats, pumps, any kind of shoe you can think of even combat boots! Their shipping was speedy and the shoes are great quality. Every day they have a different pair of shoes featured in the “Deal of the Day” where they give you an amazing deal on the pair featured. They are always a super cute pair. I want them all!
  • Con: Sometimes my size of shoe is out of stock and that makes me sad.

Forever-21-Logo2

Forever21.com

  • Pro: Everyone loves Forever21 right? Their clothes are so cute and their style is right on target. Also, the prices cannot be beat! Sometimes they carry items on the website that are not available in stores, which is also pretty cool. I like to check out the clearance section, because there are always unbeatable sales there too.
  • Con: Because the prices are so low, that can mean that some of their items are not of the best quality, but you get what you pay for! Not all of the items are low quality, but you just have to watch out for it. Also, the online selection could be beefed up a bit, but other than that I love the site!

Go check these sites out! You never know what you will find. Happy shopping!

Love,

Chelsea Crockett - Tank TopHey girlies!  Rocking your own style is one of the best things about fashion.  You can mix and match until you find a perfect look that fits you.  One of my favorite things I’ve discovered is how to use an ordinary piece of clothing and make it your own.  The easiest way to do so is with an everyday tank top or t-shirt.

A new trend I see almost every where is high waisted shorts.  Tucking your tank into these is super casual, cute, and quick!  If you have a looser shirt and don’t think it will look good tucked in, leave it out and gather it together in the front.  After that, make a small tie on either the right or left side of your shirt.  This still shows off your shorts and gives your look a more creative feel.  Another way to wear your tank is simply letting it hang straight down.  If you’re just lounging around or watching a movie with friends, this keeps it comfy and casual.  You also don’t have to worry about constantly keeping it tucked in.  These three styles are easy to do and will look great wherever you are this summer!

Love, Chels

Hey insiders!

It’s finally bonfire weather, which means big sweaters, s’mores, and memories made with your closest friends.  The weather’s just a little chilly, allowing you to bundle up by the fire and enjoy some apple cider.  Whether you’re going to a bonfire or hosting one, you’re going to need an outfit that’s going to be on fire (not literallyWink).

If the bonfire bash you’re attending is just a small get-together with friends, putting a lot of thought into your outfit isn’t needed.  A big sweatshirt and sweatpants is all you need to keep you warm and comfy while roasting marshmallows.Chelsea Crockett - Over-Sized Sweater Look

If you’re attending more of a party/bonfire, you’ll need a fashionable, yet warm, autumn outfit to wear.  Since over-sized sweaters are a huge trend in the fashion world, they’re perfect to throw on with your favorite pair of leggings.  Pair this with your favorite boots and you’re set.  I prefer combat boots because, in addition to keeping your toes warm, they’re also stylish and edgy.  If you want to accessorize, try wearing a scarf and purse to match.  Even throw on a beanie to make your look trendier.

Of course, you can always take the even dressier route.  Denim and plaid are both two styles that are hot in Hollywood right now.  If you choose to wear either of these patterns, try rocking a long-sleeved button up.  Instead of buttoning it up, leave it open and show off your favorite shirt or V-neck.  As for pants, simply wearing jeans or leggings will work just fine.

Good luck and have fun!

Billabong has triangle, halter, low-rider, cross back, and bandeau bikinis in all different colors and patterns.

A basic white tee is an item that every girl must have in their closet.  It’s a classic!  This tee can be dressed up or down and can be worn with almost anything!  So what exactly are the perfect ways to style a white tee?  Check it out!Chelsea Crockett- white tee with blazer

  • If you need to look a bit more professional, try it with a blazer!  It’s a classic when paired with slacks or skinnies and flats or heels.  There are so many possibilities!
  • Throw it on with skinny jeans or a pair of shorts.  Tuck it in or leave it out.
  • Nothing looks sleeker than a basic white tee.  Dress it up with jewelry, fun shoes, sun glasses, and more!
  • Tuck it in to a maxi or skater skirt!  It’s the perfect way to dress down a rather dressy skirt.  This look is perfect for shopping or hitting downtown.

  • Go crazy with prints!  Add a printed pair of pants or a skirt to liven up your look.  Since the tee is so basic, it’s totally acceptable to grab a crazy print to go with it.

If you don’t have a basic white tee, go get one…NOW!  It’s great to have a v-neck and scoop neck style to change it up every once in a while.  They are usually inexpensive and can be found almost anywhere!  Comment below and tell me how you rocked your basic white tee!

Have you seen any of these skirts floating around lately? I am absolutely in love with them! In this post I am going to tell you where you can buy one and how to style them!

Where to buy them:

You can buy them on sites like modcloth.com or even ebay! I was able to find some super cute, affordable ones on gojane.com. Some people even make their own! For those crafty few, there are some great blogs and YouTube videos that tell you exactly how to do it. You can buy cheap tulle at Walmart!

How to style them:

It really depends on your personal style! If you are a bit more edgy, throw on a studded leather jacket and combat boots with your skirt. If you are on the preppy side, layer a button up shirt with a sweater and oxfords with your skirt to complete the look. If you are going for a classy look, pair the skirt with a bright blazer and some nude pumps. Instantly adorable! If you like a retro look, add a pair of dark tights and Mary Jane pumps with a simple blouse. I love these skirts because they are so fun to wear!chelsea crockett tulle skirt

I really fell in love with this trend after seeing it on Pinterest! Do you have a Pinterest? If so, go ahead and follow me! The link to my account is here on my website, just click on the Pinterest logo at the top of the page!

I hope you enjoy this trend as much as I do!
