Christmas is the best holiday of the year.  Not only do you get to experience good food and good company, but you get to dress up in your most stylish holiday attire!  I always have trouble finding Chelsea Crockett - Christmas Outfitthe perfect outfit to wear for all the family get-togethers and fun festivities that come along with the day.  Depending on what you have lined up, you’ll either need a casual outfit, a formal outfit, or maybe even both!  Here are a few ideas to get the holiday fashion flowing!

Casual: The outfit on the left is one of my favorite looks this year.  Poncho coats and cardigans like the one on the left are super “in” this year.  Don’t be shy to rock a mix of red and green!  Plaid is also the perfect pattern that isn’t too over-the-top.  Pair this look with some gold accessories, a pair of heeled booties, and a maroon lip!   

Formal:  First, pick what colors are appropriate for the occasion.  I would suggest reds, greens, maroon, tan, neutral colors, etc.  Keep it Christmas-oriented!  Long-sleeved high-neck shirts like the one in the featured image above are perfect to pair with a suede skirt and heels!  If you want to wear a dress, velvet is super popular this season.  Pair it with a clutch and a cute pair of boots or heels!

Which look are you going to try out this Christmas?  Share with me below! 🙂

Merry Christmas! – Chelsea

When winter starts to roll in, there are certain things to do to prepare your closet for the cold weather ahead.  I always make sure my wardrobe is ready for the season, whether it be summer or winter.  Make sure you check these essentials off your list so you can be ready, too! 

  • Change your closet from warm to cold.  My closet used to get extremely cluttered with all of my summer and winter clothes stuffed together.  Switch out all of your shorts and sandals for pants and booties!Chelsea Crockett - Winter Outift
  • Purchase a neutral, warm coat that will go with a majority of your outfits.  Finding a coat that is both stylish and keeps you warm is key for the cold weather!
  • Also, purchase a good pair of snow/rain boots.  Especially if you’re in college, walking to class in the snow without a good pair of boots will be awful!
  • Know how to layer.  When it comes to looking stylish in the winter, layering up with different shirts and jackets is a necessity.  I sometimes find it hard to find a cute outfit to wear and be warm at the same time.  Knowing how to layer like a pro is the perfect way to achieve this!
  • Purchase the perfect winter accessories that go with your style.  Accessories such as beanies, scarves, high socks, tights, etc. are the best way to spice up your outfit and make your outfit warmer at the same time!  You get the best of both worlds, right?  

I hope you’re all prepared for an awesome winter ahead!

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.
  • Make it grungy with army!  Pair your white tee with an army coat and a beanie.  It’s the ultimate skater look.
  • 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!

Love you all!

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!

XOXO,

Hello Lovelies,

            Christmas break is one of the most popular times for vacation.  While many families try to beat the winter cold by hitting the beach, other families enjoy snow skiing or may be visiting families up north.  So how do you pack for a cold winter vacation?  Check out my perfect packing guide.

            Packing for a winter vacation can be tough.  Fitting your boots, cold weather outerwear, and clothes in one suitcase can be tricky.  So how can you narrow it down?  Pack the basics!  Black, brown, grey, and white are the first colors you should pack.  One pair of black and brown boots will last you the entire vacation.  They can be worn with any outfit!  When packing coats, think warmth and style.  Bring along you’re warmest coat and your favorite stylish coat, like a pea coat, for nights out.  You never know how cold it’s going to be!  Also, don’t forget your gloves and leg warmers!  A super cute trend this winter is legChelsea Crockett- socks and boots warmers or tall socks sticking out of the top of your boots.  Not only does it add an extra element to your outfit, but it’ll keep your legs warmer.

            If you are going on a vacation this Christmas break, have a fabulous time!  Have fun packing!

Love,

Best Coat For Your Body Type!

During these frigid winter months, you pretty much live in a coat. Since your coat is your constant companion, you need to make sure that it flatters your figure so you can look fierce even when it is frigid outside! Here is a guide to which coats flatter your body type!

 Athletic/hourglass figure:

A fit-and-flare coat is your best bet when you have an hourglass figure! Fit and flare coats accentuate your small waist and hide pesky hips. Try coats with belts, they cinch your waist and accent your figure!

Curvy:

For you curvylicious ladies, fitted coats with oversized collars are key. The collar draws attention to your face! Try a coat with a nice statement collar.  Also, coats with subtle ruffles are a good choice. Pretty, short coats are your cup of tea!coat

 Petite:

Choose a jacket that hits at your hipbone, because if the coat is too long it can overwhelm your small frame! The wrong coat style can swallow your petite figure up and make you look shapeless! We DON’T want that! For a coat that’s short but still super-warm, choose a heavy parka or thick puffer coat.

 

Stay warm, Insiders!

XOXO, Chels
