Plaid: Fall’s favorite pattern. You can wear it many ways, with many layers, and in many color combinations! Sometimes, with all those options, it can get a little overwhelming. To simplify styling plaid this Fall, I’ll give you my 3 favorite ways to wear it.

  1. Layered: One plaid shirt can be worn in so many ways. It can be worn under a sweater, cardigan, vest, army jacket, and so on. You can tone down the pattern by layering it under things, or let it be the centerpiece of the outfit by wearing it by itself.
  2. Accessorized: Plaid scarves are timeless and go with just about anything! You can drape a plaid blanket scarf around your shoulders to keep you warm, and can wear a pair of plaid gloves to add accent to any fall ensemble.
  3. Statement: Make a plaid piece the statement item of your outfit. I love a cute plaid skirt with a simple top and riding boots. The pattern doesn’t overwhelm the outfit and gives it the perfect amount of “pop.”

I am ready to rock some plaid this Fall!

XOXO, Chels

I always love when I find a piece of clothing that I can style in different ways with different outfits.  A simple, thin-strapped dress can go a long way when it comes to getting the most out of your purchase!  Here are different ways you can layer your dress for three different styles!

  • Over a simple tee.  Chelsea Crockett - DressLike the picture on the left, you can create the perfect street style look by pairing a simple tee with your simple dress.  Sometimes simplicity creates the most stylish looks!  Try mixing and matching with different colors, patterns, and accessories.
  • Under an oversized sweater.  Take your favorite oversized sweater and throw it on over your dress.  If it’s too long, try tying a knot at the front of your sweater to show off more of your dress.  This look is super comfy and perfect for the upcoming fall weather!
  • Under a jean/bomber jacket.  This look too is great for chilly weather!  You can pair your dress with a retro jean jacket or a floral bomber jacket, or even a leather jacket if you’re feeling extra edgy!  This is the perfect way to dress up your look.  Compliment your outfit with some wedges and a stylish purse!

Which style do you rock most often?  I think all of them are so cute! 🙂

Turtleneck Fashion 2017

To the people who say that turtlenecks are totally not cute, I say think again! They keep you cozy warm in the chilly temps all while rocking a stylish fashion staple. Layer them under coats, over skirts, tucked into jeans, any way you want! Here are my 3 favorite ways to wear them this winter.f7fd316d4e48530f850c88dee34e8dba

  1. Edgy and chic: If you want to try an edgy or trendy look, pair a gray turtleneck sweater with a
    leather jacket, some black skinnies, and black booties. The shorter length of the leather jacket will nicely contrast with the longer hem and neck of the turtleneck, adding dimension to the outfit.
  2. Sweet and simple: A simple cable-knit sweater turtleneck is a very effortlessly classy look. Pair a simple sweater turtleneck with darker jeans and riding boots for a classic, timeless look.
  3. Fun and flirty: Get creative! Wear a turtleneck with a leather skirt and boots. Wear it layered with a plaid button-up shirt for a cute combo. Wear it with a faux fur vest to bring out your chic side. Turtlenecks are great winter pieces that can be layered and worn in so many ways, the sky is the limit.

What are your thoughts on turtlenecks? Do you think they are cute, or do you think they are a thing of the past? I’m a definite fan.

XOXO, Chels

Ponchos used to be a fashion statement of the past, but recently they have made their way back into style. There are so many different variations of them, from plaid to plain to patterned! Here are my top 3 favorite ways to play up ponchos this season.

  1. Pretty in plaid: I love this preppy take on ponchos. The pattern is classy and timeless. Wear a flowey white long-sleeve blouse under your poncho, and add in some dark jeans and boots to finish off the look.
  2. Fun fringe: This might be my favorite way to wear ponchos. The fringe is so fun and flirty! Pair with simple black jeans, suede booties, and a neutral tee.images
  3. Cute and casual: Wear a simple poncho with casual jeans and boots for an effortlessly cute ensemble.

What is your favorite poncho pair?

Vests are a great fall fashion staple. They are great to wear on chilly days when a coat isn’t necessary but you still need a little something to keep you warm. Plus, vests are the ultimate layering piece. There are so many different styles of vests out there this season, so I thought I would round up my top 3 and give you some styling tips with each!

  1. Front-fold vest: This style of vest is pretty new and I am loving it. The inside of the vest folds outward, giving a more layered and dimensional look. This vest is a great casual piece that looks awesome layered with plaid or a solid neutral color.83c6f05b7d84cddc243427512b1e1f56
  2. Faux fur vest: I love these vests because of how versatile they are. You can pair them with a patterned or solid shirt and with pretty much whatever color of pants you want! It can also be dressed up or dressed down depending on the situation.
  3. Quilted: This is the most popular type of vest. These are an awesome addition to your everyday fall wardrobe. They are comfy and cozy and casual. Pair with a simple button up and riding boots for a cute casual outfit, or layer over a sporty hoodie for a sporty look.

What is your favorite vest to wear this fall?

When I am planning out my outfits, I always have to plan out the jewelry too. Lately I have been loving the layered necklace trend. It adds dimension and uniqueness to your look! Plus, there are so many variations you can do. I will admit, though, that it took a lot of practice to get the art of layering down. There are ways to make your layering look like it flows and like the pieces work together. Here is necklace layering 101!bbceaaa468e8980d22628679bfd962ce

  1. Play with different lengths: Wearing short, medium, and long necklaces together lets you showcase all three necklaces and also gives your look different levels of dimension.
  2. Work with shapes: Wear necklaces that feature different shapes. This draws attention to the individual pieces and the whole look. Try a necklace with a small circle and another with a bar.
  3. Mix it up: Mix up the different metals! Use silver and gold necklaces in your layering. It adds dimension!
  4. Keep it simple: I have a necklace that I wear every day. I never leave the house without it, and I always feel “dressed” when I have it on. From there I can add pieces to my look if I want depending on my outfit! Also, necklace layering doesn’t have to be done when you are dressed up and going out, it can be done when you are wearing a simple tee and jeans! It can give a simple feminine touch to an outfit in need of some pizzazz.

I love this trend because it is an easy way to express yourself and play with fashion! There is really no “wrong” way to layer.

How much do you wear belts? My guess is only when your pants need assistance staying on your tush. Your winter wardrobe this year is dependent on them! Belts, that is. You can build your outfit around them and use them to accessorize! You can also use them to shape your clothes to your body. Bold belts can transform a simple ensemble into a stylish outfit. Here are 3 ways to use belts in your wardrobe this winter!belt 3

  1. Blanket Scarf: Do you ever wonder what the best way to wear your blanket scarf is? They are so thick that sometimes it is difficult to style them. Belts transform your blanket scarf into a cute vest! Layer your scarf over a simple tee, drape it over your shoulders, and tie a belt around the middle. This gives you some curves and adds layers to your look.
  2. Cape: Wear a classy cape with a belt around the middle! It breaks up the simplicity of the cape and, like the option above, it gives you some shape.
  3. Printed: This last option is the simplest of all. Wear a patterned belt, like leopard print, with a simple shirt and jeans for a simple but sassy outfit. If you want to wear a simple neutral sweater with jeans, wearing a printed belt takes your outfit to the next level.

Belt it up!

XOXO, Chels

As we all know, layering is a must in autumn and winter. Why not have fun with it? I love the look of collars. They add a preppy flare to any ensemble. There are so many kinds of collars, too! Here are a few outfits that combine collars with other cute fall fashion staples.collars

  1. With a simple blazer: I love this cool, classy look. Pair a simple white button up collared shirt with a simple blazer, such as a navy or grey blazer. Button the shirt all the way up to the top so that all of the buttons are buttoned and the collar is displayed. Add in a long simple necklace, skinnies and booties!
  2. With a cable knit sweater: This is the perfect preppy look. Layer a cable knit sweater over a white collared shirt for an easy, classy look! Add in a pair of riding boots and wayfarer sunglasses and you will be the most preppy lady on the block!
  3. Dressy: I love sequins. Anything that sparkles is totally my fav. That is why I love this sequin collar trend! You can dress it down and wear it to school with a pair of skinnies and flats, or you can dress it up with a blazer and wedges! Love love!

Learn to love layering. That is my one huge piece of advice when it comes to winter weather. Once you have perfected this extremely useful art, you can use it to create one of a kind outfits and form your own personal style. I am going to show you some examples of outfits so you have visual examples!

1.  This outfit combines a sleek vest, a plaid flannel, a chambray denim shirt, and a striped long-sleeved shirt. They tossed in a simple statement necklace to add a little pazazz to the outfit and to spice up the ensemble.

2. This preppy look combines a hot pink vest, a cream colored sweater, and a checked button-up blowse. This color combo is to die for! I also love how they threw in a gold statement watch and some sassy bangles to tie the outfit together. They finished off the outfit with a pair of dark wash skinnies. Perf!

   3. This combo is probably my favorite of them all. It has a sort of rustic, country feel to it, ya know? This outfit combines an army vest with a striped sweater and a chambray denim shirt. I love the subtle colors in the chunky pastel scarf! It pulls the green in the vest and the navy in the pants together, as well as the tan booties.

Have you learned a lesson in layering? I hope the answer is “yes!” Don’t be afraid to try any of these combos this fall and winter!

 Spring can be a confusing season, since it can be a mix between summer and winter weather.  As the cool winter air turns into the crisp spring weather, layering is an important art to master in the fashion world.  It’s an easy way to be able to break out some of your warm-weathered clothing without freezing in the cool March temperatures.  Check out my simple ways toChelsea Crockett- spring layering layer in the spring.

            The #1 tip to layering is to keep the bulk to a minimum.  It’s easy to throw on an abundance of clothing, but the outcome may not be flattering.  Keep your base outfit form-fitting.  A blazer is a great way to add warmth to an outfit without making the outfit look bulky.  It can be paired with a simple dress or jeans and a tee/button-up.  The same goes for a vest.  If you want to wear one of your favorite dresses, but the weather might be too cold for it, don’t worry!  Try pairing your dress with a jean jacket and light, silk scarf.  If it’s too chilly to wear sandals, opt for a pair of flats or knee high riding boots to complete your look.  If it’s too chilly to wear your favorite spring button up, try throwing on a crewneck sweater over the shirt, pulling out the collar and rolling up the sleeves.  Make sure to wear bright colors to really capture the essence of spring!

            Layering is so important, especially during the months of crisp, cool weather.  Experiment with your clothing, and soon enough, you’ll be a layering expert!

Love,

            Chelsea
