            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?

            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!

Hello Lovelies,

            A moto jacket is the coolest item you can add to an outfit this fall.  It can toughen up even the girliest outfit and add edginess to a t-shirt and jeans.  Whatever the life throw at you, you’ll be ready to go in your hot, new moto jacket.

            Moto, or biker, jackets come in so many varieties.  From leather to suede to color block styles, you’ll never run out of options to go with your outfit!  My favorite style of biker jacket is leather.  Try to find a worn leather look to give it that vintage feel.  A fun way to wear a leather moto jacket is with a floral print dress.  This will dress down the floral dress giving it an edgy look.  They contradict each other, which makes the look more Chelsea Crockett- colorblock jacketdaring!  Another daring look is to rock a jean moto jacket with jean pants.  As long as the shades are different, then it is okay!  When it comes to this look, pair it with a simple tee and plain colored flats.  You don’t want to overpower the jacket.  The last involves a color block biker jacket.  This type of jacket can come in all materials and colors.  Depending on what color you pick out, keep your look simple.  Adding a neutral colored dress and oxford shoes to your color block jacket creates a simple sophisticated look with a pop of color.  A motoChelsea Crockett- biker jacket jacket is all about living life on the edge, so be daring with your style!  Don’t hide behind your same, boring look!

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!

            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.

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!

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
