Ways to Wear Gingham for Every Occasion

Gingham is the classic picnic print. It is a great spring and summer pattern, not just for picnicking in the park! You can find many ways to wear this classic print for every occasion. Here are a few ways I have found!

  1. On a date: Pair a fun and flirty gingham top with some simple skinnies and a cute purse. The top will give a touch of your feminine side, whereas the jeans keep it low-key.
  2. To the beach: I am obsessed with gingham swimwear! It is so vintage and fun. I happen to own this suit! I love the high-waisted bottoms that help slim my hips. And the off-the-shoulder sleeves of the top add some extra style to the ensemble.
  3. For girl’s day: A fun dress is a must for a girls day out! Grab a fun and flowy dress like the one pictured and get ready to hang with your gals. I love the ruffled shoulders and synched waist of this look. It is so girly and sweet!
  4. At the office: Keep it classy at the office by wearing a gingham shirt tucked into a skirt. I love this look because it is just a touch of preppy.
  5. Out shopping: Rompers are one of my favorite spring and summer pieces, so obviously a gingham romper makes the list! This romper is cozy, cute, and completely classy. You can take this look from shopping to picnic to date as easy as pie. So versatile!
  6. Lounging around: Keep it cozy with a pair of cotton gingham shorts. I love this pair because of the tie-waist. It really gives off a fun retro vibe, don’t you think?

Gingham is a timelessly classy look. Do you have a favorite picnic-patterned piece? Comment below!

You may think that scalloped patterns on clothing are just for the spring and summer. Think again! This preppy trend can be taken with you into the cold seasons as well. Here are a few ways you can work with it!

  1. Accessorize: If you want to subtly scallop your outfit, wear it in accessories like this cute leather clutch! This adds a subtle, girly flare to your outfit.scallops 1
  2. Sweet sweaters: Work scallops into your sweaters! I think this scalloped sweater is so cute. The color contrast along with the pattern gives it dimension and makes it the statement piece of the whole ensemble.
  3. Dress it up: How cute is this scater dress? The scalloped hem is a cute girly addition to your simple every-day little black dress. Wear it over some dark colored tights with boots and you have a cute Thanksgiving/Christmas outfit!

See? What’d I tell ya. Scallops are “in” in every season. What is your favorite way to wear this pattern?

XOXO, Chels

Co-Ords: The Newest Summer Trend

We’ve all watched rompers, high waisted shorts, and crop tops come in style… and now there’s a trend that combines all three. Co-Ordinates, or “Co-Ords” for short, are totally the new craze!

Co-Ords are patterned sets that look like a romper but the top and bottom aren’t connected. So if you want, you can mix and match if you have multiple sets. I didn’t even know how popular they were until I looked them up myself! The store Topshop carries some of the cutest sets with some of the prettiest designs and patterns.Chelsea Crockett - Co Ord Set

Chelsea Crockett - Co Ord SetThe fun thing about co-ords is that you really can dress them up or dress them down, depending on the pattern and style. The set on the right is more casual, so you can throw it on before you hit the mall or a movie with friends! But the set on the left you might wear to a nice dinner or a fancy date with a pair of heels or wedges! The possibilities are endless. (If they go together, you can even mix and match different colors and patterns!)

If you want to check them out, you can find them throughout your local mall or online!

Cheetah print and polka dots in the same outfit together….no way?! Yes way!  Mixing and matching is totally acceptable and actually brings life to your outfit!  Pairing certain prints can be tricky and look entirely wrong if done incorrectly.  What’s important is knowing which patterns to mix together and how to do it the right way.  Come find out what works and what doesn’t!Chelsea Crockett- plaid and polka dots

Before choosing which patterns to mix, you must decide which colors do and don’t go together. You can’t mix red and black plaid with navy and brown chevron…that would just look wrong!  Either try to keep the colors in the same family group, such as army green, brown, black, tan, and navy, or wear a neutral colored print with a pop or color, such as black and white plaid with Kelly green polka dots.

My two favorite combinations are polka dots mixed with plaid and cheetah print matched with stripes. Try wearing a forest green plaid shirt with a navy and white polka dot sweater over it.  The color and print combination really complement each other!  If you prefer cheetah print, try pairing a black and white striped blouse with a cheetah print skirt or pair of shorts!  Both looks can be paired with boots, flats, sandals, or heels.  Also, keep the jewelry to a minimum since the patterns are already the center of attention.

What are your favorite print combinations? Comment below!

XOXO,

Summer is such a great time to try new things with your style.  I’m sure many of you have a dress code or uniform at school and cannot fully express yourself.  Now’s the time…be adventurous with your style!  Be bright and step out of your comfort zone with fun pieces.  Add a pair of bright or neon shoes to a dull black and white outfit, or throw on a hot pink purse with jeans and a tee to make your outfit more girly.  The brighter, the better.  Chelsea Crockett- go out on a limb with you styleOnce you’re comfortable with crazy accessories, a closet must-have is a pair of printed shorts and/or pants.  These bottoms can dress up a plain tee and take it to a whole new level.  It’s an easy way to have a chic, effortless outfit.  Pair any of these fun accessories or outfits with a fun colored lip and hit the town!  All of your friends will want to copy your new, fun style.  Take risks this summer and have fun with your own signature style.  

Have fun,
