How do you feel about the over-the-knee sock trend? I personally love it. I love the accent they add to your ensemble and the adorable flare they give. Want to know how you can rock this trend? Read on!knee socks 2

  1. Super casual: Pair a large oversized sweater with over-the-knee socks and over-the-knee boots. This look is the perfect combo of cozy and casual.
  2. With a dress: This is my favorite way to wear these trendy socks! Pair a simple shorter dress with a long cardigan and short booties. Don’t forget the knee socks! Also, you can layer in a scarf that is the same color of the socks which will tie the whole outfit together.
  3. With a skirt: Pair a simple skater skirt with a patterned long-sleeved shirt, tights, dark socks and wedge booties! Love love love it!

Do you think that you will rock this trend? I will! I think it is super slimming and trendy. I got my over-the-knee socks at Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe!

Let’s be real. We all love rocking the dark-lips trend! I think it is so romantic and mysterious. I am working on getting this look down pat! Here is How I am mastering the trend:dark lips 2

  • Keep it even: In order for your lipstick to go on smooth and look its very best, you need to have smooth lips. By gently exfoliating your lips you can remove all of the dead skin and prep your lips for perfect lip color! Also, make sure they are nice and moisturized.
  • Prep your skin: Spend a little bit of time working on your skin. I like to apply my concealer, foundation, powder, bronzer, and blush before I put on my lipstick. If you put the lipstick on before you do your face makeup, you smudge your lip color all over the place.
  • Find your hue: If your skin is an olive tone, go for a deep burgundy. If you have dark skin, go for a merlot hue and mix it with a tiny bit of brown.
  • Lip line? With dark colors, you usually do not have to line your lips before applying lipstick. You can if you want, but it’s not a total must!

I love this super chic trend. I always feel more sassy and confident when I have a bold lip color going on. Do you? Comment below and let me know if you like this fall fashion trend!

elbow patches 1Elbow patches may seem like a thing of the past, but trust me, they are SO not. I just re-discovered the trend very recently and am so glad I did! Elbow patches add a hipster, preppy vibe to any sweater or long sleeved shirt. Here is how YOU can get hip with the trend!

  1. Sweater: Toss on an elbow patch sweater, dark skinnies, and riding boots for a super stylish, preppy fall every day outfit!
  2. Blazer: Nothing says “I am preppy AND classy, and super stylish to boot” like an elbow patch blazer. End of story.
  3. Shirt: This is one of the easiest way to rock the trend. Just pair a long sleeved elbow patch high low shirt with a pair of black leggings, boot socks, and riding boots. I would wear this look to school, to work, to church, out shopping, pretty much anywhere! If you want to make your outfit stand out, snag a shirt with GLITTER elbow patches!

I am going to be trying an elbow patch DIY here in the near future, so keep an eye out for that! I am going to attempt to add elbow patches to one of my old sweaters to spruce it up. Stay tuned!

XOXO, Chels

When our parents were in high school, a way to show your girl that you wanted to “go steady” with them was to give them your letterman or “varsity” jacket. Nowadays, they are an up and coming fashion statement! I myself am rocking the trend, and I think that you should too! Here are a few ways to do it.varsity jacket

  1. Layer it: Do you have a favorite hooded jacket or sweatshirt? Put it on and then layer your varsity jacket over it! Not only will this keep you warm, but it will also add character to your outfit. Add in a beanie and you will have a totally cozy combo.
  2. Keep it simple: Pair your varsity jacket with your favorite pair of jeans and some white Keds. This gives your ensemble a little throwback flare and is nice and simple. If you want to add even more “cute” to the combo, braid your hair and add a ribbon to the bottom of it. Adorable!
  3. Dress it up: If you want to take the dressier route, layer your letterman jacket over a dress or a skater skirt! It will give an edgy flare to your girly dress.

I wear my varsity jacket alllll the time! Try one on for size, I know you will love it!

A good hat can take any outfit from drab to fab! Felt hats are a fab fall fashion statement item. They add character to your outfit and class it up a little bit. You can wear felt hats in both casual and dressed up outfits. It just depends on what youfall felt hat 2 pair them with. Here are my top three fall felt hat looks for this season!

  1. Tan hat: I love this subtle, sweet look. Pair a tan felt hat with a tan sweater and black skinnies. To add a pop of color, wear a pair of statement shoes such as red booties or flats. Wear your hair in soft waves to complete the look!
  2. Grey hat: Start out with a simple striped shirt and layer a tan sweater or slouchy cardigan over it. Then pull on a pair of dark skinnies, cuff the bottoms of them, and then slip on some tan booties. Tussle your hair, paint on some red lipstick, and plop that hat on your head!
  3. Black hat: I personally own a black felt hat! Here is a way to casually wear one. Pair some faded, distressed skinnies with some black booties, a simple white blouse, an army green vest, and your floppy felt hat! Totally edgy and adorable at the same time.

I cannot wait to rock my felt hat this fall. Will YOU be sporting the trend?

XOXO, Chels

  1. Oversized sweater and camo skinnies: This outfit is a super casual option that I would wear to school or out and about. By44e607633225185f0df36345069dc494 pairing the camo skinnies with a light colored sweater you tame the camo pants. Toss in a pair of white Converse to complete the look!
  2. Striped maxi and camo jacket: Maxi dresses are uber comfy, so I love every excuse to wear one! A navy and white striped maxi dress with a camo jacket is the perfect balance of colors and patterns.
  3. Camo jacket, white v-neck and combat boots: If you really want to go all out and embrace the camo trend, then pull on a pair of dark skinnies and add in a white v-neck, brown combat boots, and a camo jacket. Super edgy and super chic!

Even if you don’t think camo is really your thing, try and toss a little bit into your outfit every once in a while! It doesn’t have to overpower your outfit, like I showed you above. Which outfit was your fave? Comment below!
