The velvet trend is back and better than ever for the upcoming seasons of 2017!  Velvet is one of my favorite materials because it’s so soft and comfy to rock for both casual and formal occasions.  Here’s how you can hop on the velvet bandwagon this season, too!

Chelsea Crockett - Velvet Shoes

Not only is velvet back, but there’salso a new trend within the new trend! Crushed velvet seems to be the new style that’s just a little different than regular velvet.  The material is more so in patches and more “crushed” together instead of a smoother velvet. You can wear a button-down shirt with distressed jeans for the comfy look or a crushed velvet evening dress to put a spin on your outfit!

Another way to rock velvet is with your shoes!  They’re unique and give a vintage, classy allure to any outfit. Velvet heels or boots with a block heel can complete any look! Slides, high heels, sneakers, and even slippers are appearing in this holiday-centric fabric.

If you’re looking for a homecoming or formal dress, check out a velvet look whether it be a dress, romper, or jumpsuit!  It’s a perfect way to put a spin on any ordinary outfit while being stylish at the same time! 🙂 Check out what you can do with velvet and how you can make it your own with your outfits!

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest trends, then I’m sure you’ve seen the recent boom of over-the-knee boots. They’re super stylish and can be mixed and matched with so many different outfits! I wanted to give you a little insight about where you can find a pair and what different looks you can create with them!

First, let’s talk about where you can buy a pair.  Chelsea Crockett - Over the Knee BootsSince they’ve gotten so popular, you can actually find them at more stores than you think! Charlotte Russe sells a pair for only $26.99! If you’re willing to splurge a little more on your pair, check out DSW. They sell so many different boots from several different designers. If you don’t have a DSW near you, you can check online to find a pair!

Now, let’s talk about a few different outfits you can put together!  One of my favorite looks for the season is a sweater dress.  If you pair a comfy sweater dress with your knee-high boots, it’ll create the perfect casual fall outfit like the picture on the right! Another look is pairing your boots with a pair of light jeans and a comfy sweater/top! You could even rock a long cardigan with it as well. There are so many more looks that go great with knee-highs!

Do you like this new style of boot? Give me your opinion on them in the comment section below!

2016 was quite the year to remember.  It gave us many things, both good and bad, that will go down in the books!  Something that 2016 did give us were many trends that made their statements in the fashion world!  There are several fashion trends that are predicted to make their debut or comeback in 2017.  Here are some of them so you can get a head start!

  • Sheer.  Chelsea Crockett - Slip DressSheer is a material that’s always been around but has never gotten a lot of attention.  But in 2017, it’s supposed to be one of the hottest trends!
  • Flare.  Flare jeans have started to make a comeback toward the end of 2016, but in 2017, they’re expected to really take off!  I love the flared look because it adds a Boho, fun feel to your outfit.
  • Romantic style.  This trend includes a lot of velvet, silk, pinks, and reds!  An outfit like the one on the right represents this feminine style perfectly.  Silk slip dresses will be in almost every store next year! 🙂 
  • Sneakers.  In 2016, retro Adidas sneakers made a massive comeback.  In the new year, sneakers will be totally acceptable to throw on with almost any look!  Get a pair that you can rock to pull off the street style.
  • Street style.  Speaking of street style, it is big as it is, but it’s getting even bigger!  Brands such as Adidas, Nike, and many others will be coming out with some stylish pieces to add to your street style collection.

Which trend can you see yourself rocking in 2017?  Let me know below!

Sometimes you try something new with your hair and end up loving it.  Other times, taking a risk with your hair can be something you regret!  Depending on the person, they can love or hate their bangs.  Or maybe they simply get tired of them!  I know they can take a while to grow out, so here are a few hairstyles for hiding your bangs!

When it comes to bangs, braids can be your best friend.  There are so many different styles of braids that will help hide your bangs and are also super stylish! Chelsea Crockett - Braid Top Knot If you want to keep it simple, French braiding your bangs and bobby pinning them on the side of your head is an easy solution.  One of my favorite looks is the braided topknot like the picture on the left.  As long as you can master the look, it turns out super cute!

If you haven’t invested in any accessories, then you should start!  Hats and headbands are perfect for hiding bangs (and for fixing a bad hair day!).  Purchase a few that you can switch up with different outfits and you’re good to go!

Another quick way to style your bangs is by drying your hair a certain way.  Training your part to go the opposite way can be hard, but by doing this you can master the flipped hairstyle.  This will allow your bangs to blend with your hair better along with using some product to seal the deal.

If you’re regretting getting bangs, then I hope this helps!

Fourth of July is the perfect day for boating, barbeques, and celebrating the awesome country we get to call home! It’s also the perfect day for dressing up in your most stylish red, white, and blue gear. This year, I decided to put together a few looks that put a little twist on fourth of July attire.

Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July JacketThe first look is the picture on the left. I love this statement jacket that pairs perfectly with a simple outfit! A pair of black shorts and a black tank top is all you need with this jacket. Finish it off with a cute pair of sunglasses and sandals or converse. If you start to feel the heat, roll up your sleeves like she did on the left!

Depending on where you live, it may be too chilly to wear shorts and a cute tank.Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July Sweater You may need long sleeves or pants. Depending on what events you’re attending on the fourth will determine how festive you’re going to dress. If you’re attending a theme party, why not go all out and get a fun pair of fourth of July leggings?! If you’re just hanging out with friends, try a flag sweater like the one on the right to pair with some jean shorts.

These are just a couple looks for the upcoming holiday! What are you wearing this year? Tell me below!

Festival season is amongst us! Coachella in April and many more to follow throughout the summer that are on my not to miss list. Festival style mainly revolves around the Boho-styled look. Lots of jewelry, fun patterns, and unique materials are fun to experiment with for your festival! Here are some pointers when picking out your outfit!

At festivals like Coachella, picking out your outfit is only the first step. Accessorizing should be your main focus in putting together your look. Fringe purses, circulaChelsea Crockett - Festival Jewelryr sunglasses, and chunky rings are all in this year. The picture on the left shows someone who took accessorizing to another level. Metallic tattoos are so cute and can be bought in gold or silver to match your jewelry. Check them out!

As far as the actual outfit goes, Boho patterns are where it’s at. Loose patterned shorts and rompers are not only comfy but stylish! I’ve recently been seeing two reoccurring trends in upcoming festival style: hats and midi cardigans. Hats are fashionable and are perfect for being in the sun all day! As for midi cardigans, ones that are patterned and light-weighed are cute and good for the heat.

If you’re going to a festival this year, which one? Also, what look are you going for? I may need some ideas :)!

Spring is amongst us! And with spring comes warm weather, flowers, and lots of new fashion trends! From the recent fashion weeks, I’ve witnessed trends that are about to make their mark in the upcoming season. Here are the ones you need to keep an eye out for!

  • Shoulder cutouts in shirts have come up in magazines and on fashion blogs more and more frequently. These type of shirts are perfect for spring and the warm weather approaching!Chelsea Crockett - Skirt Wrap
  • Wrapped skirts, like the picture on the right for example, are super stylish and aren’t the usual look that you’d expect for a skirt. They have a more unique look to them than just a basic skirt or dress.
  • Bright patterns and colors always make their way back into the fashion world starting in the spring. According to past fashion weeks, stripes especially will be in almost every store this season!
  • Victorian-inspired styles such as floral patterns and high-collar necklines are super cute and can bring a uniqueness to your outfit. Ruffles, too, are part of the Victorian style and are supposed to make a comeback this season!
  • Unique necklines, such as the high-collar neckline mentioned above, are fun to experiment with! An X-crossed neckline goes hand-in-hand with the shoulder cutouts trend. Check it out!

If you’re like my family, one of the main things we do during the summer is travel, travel, travel!  Some days spent flying from coast to coast or riding the train for several hours can be exhausting… But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to dress in a nice outfit!  Although some of us girls want to be comfy during our travels, we can still find an outfit that provides both style and comfort!

T-shirt dresses have been in style for a while now and I don’t think they’re going anywhere!  Chelsea Crockett - T Shirt DressYou can usually find them for a cheap price at almost any store including Forever 21, Target, etc.  They’re super easy to throw on with a cute pair of sandals or sneakers, whatever your style may be!  If you’re going for more of a girly look, pair your dress with sandals, simple jewelry, and a fedora!

If you want to go a little more casual, you can wear comfy leggings with a simple flowy shirt. Throw on a cute, boho headband and a pair of converse! Jewelry always makes an outfit better, so don’t be afraid to accessorize (I know I’m not!).

Rompers are always on the top of my list for a go-to outfit. If you find a casual one, it can surprisingly be really comfortable (and don’t forget stylish!). They’re easy to throw on like a dress as well! Let me know below in the comments what your favorite travel outfit is!

Since hockey season is nearing to an end and baseball is just about to begin, you’ll need some tips on how to look sporty yet stylish for each and every game! Sporting events are some of my favorite things to attend with my friends or family, and to look cute while doing so! There are so many different ensembles of outfits to create, here are a few of my faves :)!Chelsea Crockett - Sports Outfit

Your simplest and easiest way to go is a casual outfit. Just throw on a pair of leggings and your favorite team’s oversized jersey or t-shirt. As for adding a little more to your outfit, throw in a cute headband or bandana that matches your team’s colors. Accessorize with some fun colored beads or socks!

For a less casual look, the outfit on the right is so so cute! Whatever your team’s colors might be, find a matching flannel that goes with them. Wear your jersey and tie your flannel around your waist! In my opinion, the ripped boyfriend jeans complete the look. So… find yourself a pair to rock with some retro converse. I think even the sunglasses are a stylish touch!

If you’re going for a dressy look, it probably isn’t too easy to come up with something formal for a sporting event… but hopefully I can help with that! If you have a skater skirt, tuck in your shirt or jersey and rock it with a pair of booties. If you have time to shop around before game day, look for a jersey dress. They’re so cute but sometime tough to find!

What’s your go-to sports outfit? Lemme know insiders!

Have you ever heard the saying “less is more?” Well… this also applies to fashion, too! Sometimes the cutest outfits, are the simplest. Since fall is the time to break out boots and sweaters, here are some quick, autumn outfits to throw on that are simple yet stylish.

Chelsea Crockett - Sweater CardiganAs a girl, I know you can never have too many sweaters! An oversized sweater is the comfiest thing to throw on with leggings without looking like you just rolled out of bed. With a chunky necklace, jeans, and riding boots, you can dress up your outfit; however, put on some combat boots and leggings and you’re set for a more casual outing.

Now I might sound like I’m a little obsessed with sweaters, but big sweater cardigans are perfect for a casual, fall look. A sweater like the one on the left is super trendy with a pair of boots and a scarf. (Tip: Try to find clothing that is warm colors such as reds, browns, yellows, etc. It gives your look 10x more of a fall feel than pastel or neon colors.)

Lastly, next time you’re at Forever 21 or even Target, pick up a couple plaid or denim button ups! The cutest way to rock these is with a pair of leggings and a top-knot or a high bun. For the denim button ups, dress them up with a chunky necklace or a scarf :)!

Let me see what simple and stylish outfits you put together for the fall! Or… let me know in the comment section below!

For homecoming, us girls don’t only need a stunning dress and a fancy pair of heels, but a gorgeous hairstyle, as well! For prom, I usually like to go to a salon and have my hair fixed, but for homecoming, I like to try new ideas that I can style myself.  So… I decided to put together a few of my favorite looks.Chelsea Crockett - Loose Curls

If you have long hair, you might want to try some beachy waves with a wand! Take half of your hair in the front and pin it back with bobby pins. Be sure to tease the upper portion of the back of your hair. Make sure your waves are messy yet dressy like the style on the right!

Another look for medium to long hair is a lower messy bun.  You can leave some pieces out to frame around your face.  Tease the back of your hair slightly and wrap the hair into a messy bun.  I love to google images of messy buns and then reenact them on my own hair.  You can also find tutorials all over the internet to help you get just the right look!

For those of you with super short hair, headbands are really in and fun to add to your look. They can be casual or elegant.  Be sure to shop for a headband that matches your dress. They’re stylish and let you do something fun with your hair!

Whatever your look is, enjoy your evening!  High school goes by so quickly….make the most of it!

XOXO, Chelsea

Last Sunday was one of the greatest award shows out of the whole year! Hundreds of celebrities gathered for the Video Music Awards in California and I know I wasn’t the only one wishing to be there! With homecoming dances just around the corner, what better way to get some inspiration than from the hottest dress trends at the VMAs?

Black and white dresses seemed to be a norm on the red carpet this year. Chelsea Crockett - Fifth HarmonyThe entire Fifth Harmony clan had a perfect variety of simple, yet classy, black and white dresses. Other celebrities such as Kylie Jenner and Beyoncé pulled off the look just as well.

Another common seen trend at the VMAs was shimmer and sequins. If you want a fun look for homecoming, I definitely suggest a little glitter! Jennifer Lopez looked stunning in her sparkling dress! If you like some shimmer, it’s a perfect way to dress up your look for homecoming without going too over the top.

Now this last “trend” isn’t exactly what most people would think of when I say the word trend… but it’s probably the best one there is! Being yourself is something that each celebrity has definitely stayed committed to at the VMAs. If you look through the red carpet pictures, you’ll see tons of different styles, patterns, and pieces. No matter who it was, they stuck with their own style not caring of what people thought. I encourage you to do the same when picking out your signature dress :)!

The hot makeup looks this spring are totally adorable! They mix soft, spunky colors with bright, sassy colors to create super cute looks. Here are the top 4 hottest spring makeup colors!

  1. Lavender eyes and lips: Lavender is a spring staple. The best kind to use this spring is the shades with undertones of gold and bronze shimmer! Use these lavender shades with a pink-y nude lip gloss for a soft day time look! If you like more of a natural look, then this style is the perfect choice for you!
  2. Tangerine lips: That’s right, orange lips! If you like to stand out and make a statement you’re your makeup, then you will embrace this spring’s new lip color! Makeup artists are even trading in their red lipstick for tangerine.tangerine-lip-color-600x495
  3. Strong pastel nails: When I say “strong” pastel, I mean darker-than-normal pastel! This spring’s new pastels will rock your world. They are a stronger, more concentrated shade of your favorite spring colors.
  4. Jade eye shadow: a douse of this dark, moody green can bring attitude to any garden party! Smudge it on your lids and soften the edges with your fingers.

You can rock these shades all spring long! Try wearing them to your Easter festivities or any get-together you may attend. You will be the Belle of the ball!

Hi Girls,

            The holidays are one of my favorite times to dress up and look my best!  It’s the perfect time to throw on a new outfit, curl my hair, and go all out with my makeup.  So what type of makeup look should you go for?  I’ve got two makeup looks that will go with any holiday outfit!

            My first holiday look reminds me of the cold winter weather and snow!  I love to wear deep blues, purples, and silver during the winter months.  Start by doing your foundation as you normally would.  Next, apply a light purple eye shadow to your eyelids adding a darker purple to the outer parts of your eyelids.  For added brightness, take a shimmery white or silver to your inner eye and along your bottom lashes.  This creates the illusion of brighter, sparkling eyes!  Complete your look with mascara and clear or nude lip gloss for an icy finish!Chelsea Crockett- red lipstick

            The second holiday go-to makeup is a classic!  I love a red lip for the holidays!  Once again, apply your foundation as you normally would and add a hint of blush to your cheeks.  Next, go for a winged eye look for a classic twist.  Using liquid liner, start the line narrow, getting wider and wider as you go out.  Apply mascara and bold red lip stick and you’re good to go!  Have a wonderful holiday!

            -Chelsea
