I know for a fact that jeans will never go out of style.  They’re timeless and can be worn for almost any occasion.  The best part about jeans is that you can match them with pretty much anything!  There are three trendy jean styles that are making their way into the fashion world this fall that you should try rocking yourself!

  • Tasseled Ends.  Chelsea Crockett - Embroidered JeansI saw a pair of these when I was out shopping and I fell in love!  They usually cut off at the capri length and finish off with tasseled threads.  They’re so cute and perfect for a casual day out with friends!
  • Mom Jeans.  The 90s are back in action ladies!  Mom jeans are usually high waisted and can be rolled at the bottom to complete the look.  You can pair these with a retro top to really rock the 90s style!
  • Slit Hems.  If you want a pair of simple jeans that have a little twist to them, buy a pair of these!  They look like normal jeans until about halfway down your calf where the hems on the side split.  They’re super cute and allow you to switch it up!  (Look at the above picture for example!)
  • Embroidered Denim.  I love embroidered shirts and pants.  They’re both vintage and fashionable.  You can find jeans with embroidered flowers and other designs at certain boutiques or online!

Which look is your favorite?  Let me know below!  I think mine are the tasseled ends, how fun are those?!

When you outgrow your clothes, or simply get tired of them, there’s plenty of DIY options to give them another use!  Whether it be turning your old t-shirts into a quilt or an old sweater into a scarf, giving them new life is always a fun and creative craft to do when you have the time!  Here are 3 recycle DIYs for your old clothes and accessories. 🙂Chelsea Crockett - DIY Jeans

  • If you have an old pair of jeans that you don’t wear anymore, give them a makeover!  Styles of jeans change so often, so if you have a pair that are out of style, why not trim them up like the picture on the right?  All you have to do is take some chalk to mark the scallops in the right place (you can even use a small Dixie cup to get the right curves).  Then, make the cut!
  • If you have a plain old colored shirt or tank, try out reverse tie dye!  If you know how to tie die, it’s basically using bleach instead of colored dye.  Look up different styles you can make with where you put the rubber bands and go to town! 
  • Maxi skirts have gone in and out of style over the past few years.  If you have one that you never wear anymore, you can cut it up to make it into a sundress or a swimsuit cover-up.  Depending on the material, try it out for yourself!

Have you ever tried one of these before?  Let me know below how yours turns out!

How To Style Winter Whites

You know the phrase “you can’t wear white after Labor Day”? Throw that rule out the window. It is always a good day to wear white! There are so many great ways to style white that don’t require the weather to be spring or summer. From sweaters to jeans to handbags and dresses, you name it, you can wear it in white. As long as you incorporate other elements that match the outside temps, like a scarf or layers, then you are good to go. Here are 4 ways to rock winter whites.

  1. Bell-sleeve dress: I love the bohemian/retro look of bell-sleeve dresses. Because they are long-sleeved, you can wear them in the chilly weather when paired with some booties. You could even pull on a pair of nylon tights and a vest if you want to add some extra warmth to the ensemble. autumn-hippie-bell-sleeve-dress-free-femininos-people-white-embroidery-vintage-long-maxi-dresses-women-boho
  2. White handbag: White handbags look so fresh and clean. They add a clean pop of style to any ensemble, and they go with everything!i_216655328_01_20150226
  3. Distressed white jeans: The great thing about white jeans is that you can them year-round. I also love all of the outfit possibilities they bring! Plus, when you add in the distressed look, you add a little extra dimensions You can wear them with an army jacket and black booties for an edgy look, or if you want to keep it simple, pair them with a loose neutral-colored oversized sweater and brown leather booties.winter_white3
  4. White sweater: White sweaters come in all shapes and sizes. You can layer them or wear them by themselves. I love a crisp white cardigan because they are totally versatile, and I love an oversized white sweater that goes with almost any color of pants.eb80c430f7c013fe29312c0b5702fc90

How will you be wearing your winter whites?

During summer, it seems that all of the hype revolves around pricey brands and products that empty out your wallet.  You have to save up your money and then spend most of it on one product.  I’ve taken note of the most popular trending products and put together a “look for less” guidebook so you can save money but still be up to date with the cutest trends!

  • Birkenstocks.  Don’t get me wrong, these shoes have become a major trend.  Chelsea Crockett - Triangl SwimsuitBut each pair is usually around $100!  Kohl’s, Payless, Target, etc. all sell sandals with the same exact styles as Birkenstocks for prices as cheap as $15!
  • Triangl Swimsuits.  These swimsuits can be super pricey but tons of stores have started coming out with similar styles!  Target, Victoria’s Secret, and several online stores are all good places to look.
  • Rayban Sunglasses.  Raybans are usually very long-lasting, high-quality products, but if you want a cheap pair with a similar wayfarer or aviator style, check out Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, or H&M.
  • Ripped/boyfriend Jeans.  Although it’s useful to invest in a good pair of jeans, you may just want a pair to wear every once in a while.  Forever 21 sells quality jeans for much cheaper than other stores like American Eagle or Express.
  • Boho Jewelry.  Jewelry that has a Boho feel to it isn’t very hard to find!  My favorite places to look are Francesca’s and Urban Outfitters.

What’s your favorite trend of the summer?  Let me know below!

In honor of Fourth of July coming up, it’s the perfect time for some American flag DIYs to help put together your red, white, and blue outfit. With Pinterest being the hub for all things DIY, I found a craft that’s simple and produces the cutest, festive results! You’ll need a few tools and materials to get started.

As far as what you need, there’s not much!Chelsea Crockett - American Flag Cuffs You’ll need a pair of jeans that can be cuffed (preferably boyfriend style or ripped), safety pins, an American flag printed material, thread, and a needle. You can either find an American flag material at a craft store or substitute something as simple as a flag bandana. After you have the right tools and materials, you’re ready to begin your DIY!

  • First things first, turn your jeans inside out.
  • Pick which piece of material you want for each cuff and use safety pins to attach the fabric to the jeans.
  • Then, like the picture above, use the thread and needle to sow the material on!
  • Turn your jeans right-side out to enjoy your new patriotic pants!

It’s as easy as that! I can’t wait to see how yours turned out this holiday!

Last year floral jeans and bold prints were all the rage. This year, texture is what we are loving. Moto jeans are an edgy, unique, fashion-forward statement that I am excited to work into my wardrobe. They have just enough texture to be different from the crowd, but are not flashy and do not draw too much attention. They are a subtle statement. Here are 3 ways you can make moto jeans your own this fall.

  1. Casual and comfy: Pair a neutral sweater with a distresses, earthy shade of moto jeans. Add in some neutral suade booties or neutral flats and a fringe purse for an everyday look.Moto jeans 2
  2. Edgy: Grab a pair of black or burghundy moto jeans and toss on a black sweater and a leather jacket to turn some heads. Toss in some black chunky booties, a black or burghundy clutch and some black wayfarer shades to complete the look.
  3. Denim: Slide on some denim moto jeans with a simple sweater, printed flats, and an animal print handbag.

I want your style tips! How would YOU wear these jeans? What would you pair with them? I want to know! Comment below.

Ever wondered what kind of pants would flatter your body type the best? Look no further! In this article I will explain to you which kind of jeans give you the look you are looking for.

If You Want To: Lengthen your legs

Look for jeans that almost graze the floor, but don’t. Avoid pants that are too long, because they drown girls with smaller silhouettes. Also avoid pants that are cuffed or rolled at the bottoms because they emphasize the shortness of the legs. Aim for the perfect length, which is long, but not too long.flare-cut-jeans chelsea crockett

 

If You Want To: Create some curves

Pants with zippers or other details at the hips and upper thighs draw the eyes outward and round you out. You also want jeans with detailed back pockets, which give a flat booty a little somethin-somethin. Avoid back pockets that are too large, which overwhelm a smaller butt.

If You Want To: Thin out your thighs

Choose skinny jeans. For real! Just make sure they’re either a dark wash or darker up top than on bottom, like ombre. Avoid jeans that are lighter on top than on bottom. Look for pants that flair out at the bottom, like bell-bottoms, because they counterbalance your prorportions and draw the eye down. Also avoid bleached or faded patches at the thighs, which will make them look larger.

 

Next time you go shopping for jeans, keep these handy dandy tips in mind!

Which team are you on? Team dark wash jeans or team light wash jeans? I can never decide which is my cup of tea. Both have different ways of wearing them and styling them! Let me give you a little info on both and then you can decide which team you are on!chels light wash jeans

 

Light wash jeans: This style of jean is the more casual option out of the two. I like the textural effect of fading and just the light color of the jeans. I like wearing dark colored tops with light jeans when I want an outfit with high contrast, and white tops when I want an outfit with low contrast. If you are a casual kind of girl or just need a break from dark denim, then light wash jeans are for you!

 

Dark wash jeans: Dark wash jeans are dressier than their light wash counterpart. I like to wear dark wash jeans when I wear riding boots and classier kinds of outfits, or if I am going out with friends! If you are an Insider who likes to dress nice frequently, then dark wash jeans are your thang.

 

So, do you know which team you are on? Team Dark Wash or Team Light Wash? Comment below and let me know!

Once you’ve found the perfect pair of jeans, you never want to purchase another brand or material type of jean ever again! So what if you’ve found the perfect pair, but they don’t come distressed (washed out, holes)?  No problem!  By purchasing the same pair, you can distress them yourself!  It’s super easy and is actually fun!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sand paper
  • Ridged rocks
  • Small block of wood

Start by choosing where you want to distress your jeans. You can distress them down the front, making the color lighter, or choose all over locations to createChelsea Crockett- distressing denim holes.  Once you’ve chosen where to place the first hole, slide the block of wood in your jeans so that it separates the front and back side of the material.  Rub the sand paper or rock against the material until it looks how you like!  It might take a little for you to see results, but don’t give up!  If you do it lightly, you’ll just lighten the color of the jeans if they are dark.  If you do it longer, a hole or fray will start to form!  Do this wherever you like to complete your look!

Who knew destroying a pair of jeans could be so easy and yet, so fashionable?!

Love,

Chels

I’m sure your closet is bursting with skinny and flare jeans.  They’ve always been the perfect jean to throw on with just about anything; but did you know that a new type of jean has emerged?  Called the boyfriend or slouchy jean, it is perfect for casual lazy days.  With their roomy feel and distressed look, they could really be called dressier sweatpants!  I’ll show you a few great ways to style your new jeans!Chelsea Crockett- boyfriend jean

Don’t be surprised if your boyfriend jeans feel weird the first time you put them on, especially if you’re used to skinny jeans.  My favorite way to rock boyfriend jeans is with a rolled cuff.  This gives your pants a slimmer affect since they are tight at the ankles.  This way, your legs won’t look frumpy!  Pair your jeans with a fun colored belt and style them with a tight-fitting sweater tucked in and crazy accessories.  This will give your jeans a more upscale girly look.  Another great top to pair with boyfriend jeans is a crop top.  This look is perfect for a concert or a night out with friends.  It’s super casual with that edgy flare.  My favorite shoes to pair with slouchy jeans are flats or heels.  You want to wear shoes that have more of a dramatic effect other than sandals.  The more sparkle, the better.  Since your new jeans have a masculine feel to them, you want to make sure to wear girly tops, accessories, and shoes.  Have fun with this and try out lots of different looks!

Love,

Chels

If you’re like me, you have that favorite pair of jeans that you wear over and over again!  Thank goodness denim doesn’t go out of style.  Although styles change, a trendy pair of jeans is always in!  Here are some tips to help keep your jeans looking as fresh as they did the day you bought them.

Jeggings are like a second pair of skin that you can slide into. They are stretchy, supportive, and stylish!  When you wash your jeggings/jeans, turn them inside out. I suggest using cold water and the delicate cycle.  Also, try to avoid using a hot dryer to dry your jeans. Hang them to dry or put the dryer on air only. This will prevent shrinkage. (Hint: It’s ok not to wash your jeans every time you wear them. Your jeans conform to your body and when you wash them they lose their shape.)Chelsea Crockett - Jean Styles

If you go to put your jeans on and they are feeling a bit tight, you can dampen, iron, and stretch them a bit especially around the waist.  Lastly, when you fold your jeans to put in your closet or drawers, don’t pack them too tightly. Denim fibers need air to breathe.

The best part about denim jeans is they come in every shape, style, and size.  The choices are endless:  curvy, skinny, faded, flare, coated, classic black. Whatever your look is, you can follow these tips to help your style last as long as possible!

XOXO, Chels

Boyfriend jeans are pretty much the opposite of skinny jeans. They feature more of a relaxed fit than skinny jeans. They kind of look like you borrowed them from your boyfriend…or at least that is how the internet describes them! Here are a few ways to style these loose fitting, unique jeans.

  1. Pair a pair of light colored, distressed boyfriend jeans can be paired with a grey tumblr_m90nckA72h1r8f856o1_500oversized sweater and white converse for a comfy, casual look!
  2. Another option is to pull on a pair of light wash distressed boyfriend jeans with a white v-neck and an army jacket with nude booties. Totally cute, totally trendy!
  3. A little more of a dressier option can be achieved by pairing a light wash pair of boyfriend jeans with a grey t-shirt, navy blue blazer, and nude flats!

If you checked out my photo in Seventeen Magazine then you will see that I am rocking a pair of boyfriend jeans! The stylist paired my distressed jeans with a loose fitting white tank top and a pair of nude pumps. Boyfriend jeans are slimming and comfortable! Love em.

How do YOU plan on rocking boyfriend jeans?

Fall fashion is full of fabulous trends. One of those being the layered denim trend! You may think that wearing more than one denim piece in an outfit is a bit much, and in some cases that is true. But in others, you can really rock the layered look. Here are some outfit ideas to inspire your denim looks this fall!

Dark wash jeans with denim button up: This outfit is effortless. You just pull on your favorite pair of dark skinny jeans and then pull on a lighter denim button up. The light and dark shades of denim contrast nicely creating a clean, polished look. Pull on your favorite pair of tan ankle booties or white converse shoes to complete the look!Denim-on-Denim-in-HM-Trend-Update-2013-2014-1

Light wash denim, light wash jacket: I love this look as well. Pair a loose fitting white shirt with light skinnies and a distressed, light denim jacket. This outfit is easy and breezy. The loose white shirt gives you some contrast between the two denim items. Pair with some white Keds or ankle booties!

Denim mini skirt with jean jacket: You might need to rock this look while it is still semi warm out so your legs don’t freeze! But, during the semi cool, semi warm fall months this outfit is totally appropriate. You can also pair a flowy, loose white shirt with a distressed jean jacket and skirt. This look is a little more girly and flirty than the two above.

Do you love donning denim? If so, then these outfits are your cup of tea!

XOXO, Chels

Summer weather can be bipolar.  During the day it can be scorching hot, while at night it can become chilly.  So how exactly do you wear jeans in the summer without looking like you’re ready for fall to come?  Try these breezy summer jeans ideas!

The key to a good pair of summer jeans is the color.  Dark denim and black are for the fall and winter, so opt for a pair of light denim or white.  Ankle jeans are the new “it” jean this summer.  They’re designed to fit in-between a pair of jeans and capris.  This way, you get the full effect of jeans with the look of longer capris.  Most ankle jeans come with zippers up the side near your ankle, so you can unzip the pant and roll them shorter depending on the weather.  They can easily be paired with any type of shirt and shoe!Chelsea Crockett- boyfriend summer jeans

Another one of my favorite summer jeans are boyfriend jeans.  They are loser allowing more air to get to your legs.  They also give off that easy, breezy summer look and are one of the few pairs of jeans that look good with holes in them.  Nothing wrong with a pair of distressed jeans!  If you’re going to try a pair of boyfriend jeans, opt for a more casual look.  Try throwing on a pair of sneakers with a loose tee and a few accessories and you’re good to go!

Wearing jeans in the summer should not be banned from your wardrobe.  When you wear them right, they can be the perfect summer staple!

XOXO,

Chelsea
