 Now we all know that scarves are a great accessory to go around your neck.  Whether it’s to keep you warm or dress up a look, a scarf is an item that every girl must own!  One of the greatest things about scarves is that they have more than one purpose.  I’m going to break down some creative ways to wear your scarf…..the possibilities are endless!

            Chelsea Crockett- braid scarfWho would’ve thought that a scarf would be a great hair accessory?  Start by putting the scarf around your head and tie it behind your hair.  Pull all of your hair, including the left over strands of the scarf, to one side.  Start braiding your hair into a long braid, incorporating the ends of the scarf into your braid.  This will add a pretty pop of color in your long, beautiful braid!  It’s such a fun way to brighten any look.

            Another unique way to wear a scarf is to turn it into a bracelet.  If you have three small square scarves, lay them all side by side and tie all three together at the end.  Start braiding the three scarves together until the braid is complete.  You could even braid in a strand of “bling”!  Tie it around your wrist and there you go!  It’s that simple!   Hope you’ll try out these two different ways to wear a scarf.  Show off your creation to your friends!Chelsea Crockett- Scarf Bracelets

Ever been on a first date? Odds are, if you have, you stood in front of your closet and thought “I have nothing to wear! HELP!” Have no fear, Chelsea is here with all you need to know about what to wear on a first date.

 First things first, make sure you pick out your outfit the night before.  You don’t want to be thinking about it all day, and running around your room 15 minutes before your date is supposed to pick you up because you cannot find your favorite pair of jeans with the rhinestones on the pockets! Having your outfit picked out the night before will make you feel more prepared and ready for your date! what to wear on a first date chelsea crockett

When you are dressing for your date, make sure that what you are wearing reflects you and your personality. You want your date to know who you are! Wear colors that compliment your skin tone and make your eyes pop. Also, wear jewelry that accents your outfit, but doesn’t overtake it. Wear makeup that accents your natural beauty and accents your favorite parts of your appearance.  

 If you are going on a date in the fall or winter months, wear trendy layers and pretty scarves that match your eyes. Also, you can never go wrong with a fab pair of dark skinny jeans and your favorite riding boots! If you are going on a date in the summer time, make sure to wear shorts or dresses that are appropriate length. Guys like respectable girls!

 

The very last accessory you will need is a smile. Wearing a smile shows you have confidence in yourself! Also, whatever you wear, make sure you feel confident. A guy will be able to tell if you are uncomfortable, and actions speak louder than words.

 

Now go knock em dead, ladies!

XOXO, Chels

            Hello insiders!  One of the season’s hottest trends that I absolutely love is cutout dresses.  They’re super fashionable and can be found at almost any of my favorite stores.  One of the cool things about them is that you can find different cutout shapes such as a hearts or triangles, whatever you prefer! 

             Chelsea Crockett - Heart Cutout DressA great online store for cutout dresses is Sabo Skirt.  They have a ton of different designs, patterns, and colors!  My favorite is the “Heart Back Dress” which comes in white, black, blue, and pink!  Even though the dress is only one color, you can add a pop of neon with your shoes or handbag.

            Another place to find the best dresses is, of course, Forever 21.  Forever 21 has chic choices of the prettiest dresses at a great price.  All dresses range from only around $20 to $30 which is a great deal for how good the qualities of the dresses are!

             Although the selection is a little smaller, Love Culture and Charlotte Russe also carry cute, simple cutout dresses that are just as fashionable.  Just like Forever 21, their prices are just as good and the quality is great as well.

            Windsor clothing store also offers cutout dresses with a more formal look.  So if you want to wear a cutout dress for a fall dance, Windsor offers timeless but trendy looks.  You can pair it with ballet flats or heels depending on your event!

Hey girls!

            Boots are the best shoes to own during the winter.  Whether outside is snowy, rainy, or freezing cold, you’ll need a good pair of boots to keep you warm and dry.  There are five types in particular that are a must-have in your closet. 

  1. Rain boots.  Chelsea Crockett - Hunter Rain BootsThese boots are perfect for not only rain, but snow, too.  Hunter rain boots are some of the best quality rain boots you can buy.  Although they’re more expensive than regular boots, they come in all different colors and styles.
  2. Combat boots.  These boots have definitely made their mark as a HUGE trend in the past year.  You can find combat boots in every shoe store from DSW to Payless.  They’re just what you need to spice up any outfit.
  3. UGGs.  UGGs are the perfect kind of boots to throw on with a pair of leggings and an over-sized sweater.  If UGGs are out of your price range, try checking out the brand Bear Claw or even Target for some look-a-like boots.
  4. Riding boots.  Riding boots are the perfect type of shoe to pair with a cute jacket and skinny jeans.  The fun thing about these boots is that you can either dress them up or dress them down to go with any outfit!
  5. Heeled Boots.  Since heels and sandals aren’t the best choice to wear in the winter, you have to have a backup pair of shoes to rock with your dresses!  Heeled boots are a super cute substitute for sandals during the cold seasons!

         Which type of boot do you prefer?  Let me know below!

Hello Ladies,

            Step over boring, old sweaters, the turtleneck is making a comeback!  This chic sweater is making headlines with new ways to rock the typical turtleneck.  Designers everywhere have been coming up with newer versions of the beloved sweater turning it into a teenagers new favorite look.  They’re not just for your grandma anymore!

            The crop top, one of the hottest trends this summer, is making its way to the winter season.  Lots of celebs have been seen wearing cropped turtleneck sweaters, which can now be found at stores like Forever21.  They are so trendy and look great with a high-waisted skirt and tights or high-waisted skinny jeans.  If you’re into the more traditional sweater, no worries!  The typical turtleneck is still in style.  Try pairing it with a quilted vest and chunky necklace.  It’s a great sweater to pair accessories with.  If you don’t like something around your neck, try a scoop neck sweater.  It’s like a turtleneck, but has an over-sized neckline.  You won’t feel so confined.  Last but not least, make sure to add a pair of riding boots to your final look.  You can’t go wrong with turtlenecks and boots this season.Chelsea Crockett- crop turtleneck

            Step out of your comfort zone and try something new with your wardrobe.  If you’re nervous about stepping out in a turtleneck, then open up a current magazine.  They’re everywhere! You’ll be the trendiest girl out and about. 

Love,

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!

Hello Lovelies,

            Hey girls!

            It’s the holiday we’ve been waiting for all year and it’s finally here!  One of the best things about the Christmas season, are the fun parties and gift-exchanges!  And along with these fun festivities, you’ll be in need of a stylish outfit.Chelsea Crockett - Style for the Season

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,

            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

1. Candy Corn Nails

Chelsea crockett Halloween nails

If you love candy corn as much as I do, then you will absolutely adore these nails. I love these nails because they remind me of candy corn, which is a must-have snack for fall! These nails will definitely get you in the fall spirit! And because they only feature three colors, in three straight lines, they are super easy to achieve! If your personality is girly or goofy, then these are for you!

2. Spider Web Nails

Chelsea Crockett halloween nails

These nails scream Halloween! What describes Halloween better than creepy crawly spiders? I like these nails because they are simple yet fun! You just need black and white nail polish and BAM, you are all set to create this look! In order to get the thin lines in the spider web part of the nail, dip a toothpick into the nail polish and use it to create the web. If you favor a darker kind of style, then this is the look for you!

3. Chic Halloween Nails

Chelsea crockett halloween nails

And now for my favorite of them all! I absolutely adore these nails because, to me, they are so classy. The Halloween orange with a dash of black and white chevron is fabulous! It is the perfect mix of cute and festive. If you favor a preppy or classy sort of style, then these nails are the ones for you!

Which of these nails are your favorite? Let me know in the comment section below!

                Try hitting up a store like Forever21 or even a thrift shop and searching for a graphic tee or sweatshirt with a cute pumpkin, ghost, or black cat.  Try wearing an over-sized sweatshirt with leggings and boots or a graphic tee with your favorite pair of jeans! Style it like you normally would and you’re good to go!  Another simple Halloween statement piece you could wear is a spooky pair of leggings.  Find a crazy pair with skeleton bones or tiger stripes on them.  Throw on a solid colored tee and you’ve got yourself a subtle, yet stylish costume!

Be Fresh Faced This Fall/Winter!

Hi Girls!

            This year, the hottest makeup trend for fall and winter seems to be no makeup at all!  Models and celebs have been spotted fresh faced all over.  Whether it’s on a magazine or a picture on Instagram, sporting a fresh face is the new bold makeup look.  All you need are 3 makeup items and you’re good to go!

            The number one thing all makeup artists say for a fresh face is “a pouty lip, bold brows, and clean skin”.  Begin your fresh faced makeup look by cleaning your skin of all dirt and preexisting makeup.  Once your face is feeling nice and clean, apply a dab of concealer under each eye to get rid of any dark circles.  For the next step, think BOLD.  Using an eyeliner pencil that matches your eyebrow color, lightly fill in your brows for a thick, dramatic look.  This will take away from the fact that you aren’t wearing any eye makeup.  Last, using a clear or nude lip gloss, create a pouty lip.  It’s as simple as that!! Chelsea Crockett- thick eyebrows

            Don’t ever be afraid to showcase your natural beauty.  Everyone is beautiful in their own way.  Embrace your natural beauty and love every feature! “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” –Psalm 139:14

You are all beautiful!
