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

To me, one of the classiest, most preppy patterns is plaid. Wouldn’t you agree? The best time to wear plaid is during the autumn and winter months, and luckily those months are upon us! Here are a few of my favorite ways to pair up plaid this season.

  1. Dress it up: Layer a chunky cable knit sweater over a plaid skirt or dress for a layered fall look. Add in some booties and a felt hat to complete the ensemble! I love this pairing because it is just too cute for words! So pretty and preppy.13497777_912703465506195_5742700925156432790_o
  2. Layer it up: Pair your favorite plaid flannel with a puffy or faux fur vest for a cute, simple, everyday look! Add some brown riding boots and you are good to go. If you want something casual, pair a solid long sleeved tee with dark pants and a plaid flannel wrapped around your waist.
  3. Scarf it up: The easiest way to wear plaid this season is to wear it in scarf form! Pair a plaid scarf or blanket scarf with your favorite sweater to add a little extra oomf to your outfit.

Ahh plaid, you never disappoint! There are so many more options on how to wear plaid, this is just a few! Comment below with some other outfit ideas on how to wear this preppy pattern.

When you think of peplum style tops, you probably think of summer and spring because they are flowy and light. But, fall is also a great time for peplum tops. Here are my favorite ways to style these fun, cute tops during the cold fall weather!

  1. Cozy and casual: I love cozy tops like this. They are tight at the top and then flare out at the bottom, so they show your curves while still being loose and cozy. You can wear this cozy top with jeans or leggings for a comfy cold-weather outfit.ec18ed85cf1bd9e031c7a424fbcf8633
  2. Pretty and plaid: Fall is all about plaid! I love the combo of plaid and peplum because it is a more feminine flare on your typical plaid button-up shirt. Paired with some dark jeans and nude booties, it is the perfect fall outfit! Id wear this anywhere from the pumplin patch to out to a casual dinner out.
  3. Whistful and fun: This is a more trendy look at your fall peplum style! Bell-sleve shirts are really in, and this sort of shirt is “hippie-chic.” I love how it is paired with lace-up flats and distressed skinny jeans. I think this is a great everyday look for the fashion lover in all of us!

Have fun playing up your feminie side with peplum shirts this fall!

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.poncho 2

  1. Pretty in plaid: I love this preppy take on ponchos. The pattern is classy and timeless. Wear a flowey white long-sleeve blouse over 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.
  3. Cute and casual: Wear a simple poncho with casual jeans and boots for an effortlessly cute enseble.

What is your favorite poncho pair?

As I’ve stated a million times before, flannel is one of my favorite fall patterns! A couple years ago, oversized flannels started to be the biggest trend to wear in autumn. Now there are tons of different ways to rock flannel! Here are five of my favorites.

  1. A flannel dress. These have been the craze this season! They can be casual, worn with booties and simple accessories, or you can dress them up with wedges. Either way, they’re super cute! 
  2. A flannel scarf. Wearing one of these with an oversized sweater and booties is one of my favorite comfy outfits for fall. You can find infinity plaid scarves at a handful of places including Target and Forever 21.
  3. A flannel jacket. I know an actual plaid jacket can be hard to find, but using a big flannel as a jacket/cardigan is a perfect substitute! Just roll up the sleeves so they’re quarter length for a better look and you’re set.Chelsea Crockett - Layered Flannel
  4. A flannel layer. I love when people can pull off a layered look for fall. I think it’s super classy and gives off a very put-together feel. My fave way to do this is an outfit like the picture on the right. How stylish is that?
  5. A flannel tied around your waist. This look often comes off as hipster or something you’d see on tumblr, and I think it’s really cute! Plus, if you get cold, you can throw it on as a cardigan!

Alright ladies, it’s time to channel your inner Macklemore! Do you ever love having an item of clothing that is unique?  Something that no one else has?!  Malls are full of the same product that everyone owns, so finding something original can be tough.  This is where thrift shopping comes into play.  Thrift shops are the perfect go-to shopping destination for everything unique and different. Chelsea Crockett- Thrift Shop

The first rule to thrift shopping is to be patient. Most aren’t very organized and it can take a while to find a decent item of clothing.  Vintage sweatshirts, over-sized plaid, and high-waisted denim are some of things to be on the lookout for.  If you can find a pair of high waisted denim that fit you around the waist, but may be ugly or high water, purchase them and turn them into high-waisted shorts!  It’s also a good idea to check out the men’s clothing section for plaid and vintage tees.

If you’ve got a good chunk of time on your hands and are up for an adventure, then thrift shopping is the answer! You may be surprised what’s hidden throughout the racks.

XOXO,

Chelsea

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,

Chelsea

Do you have a plaid shirt hiding in a dusty corner of your closet? Do you refrain from wearing it for fear that you will look like a lumber jack if you wear it? Well have no fear, I have a few ways that you can wear that adorable plaid without shame!

  1. One way to style a plaid shirt is to pair it with black skinny jeans, a brown belt, nude infinity scarf, brown riding boots, tumblr_maytzfVKvb1rhctcso1_250and pearl earrings. This look is cute and casual and can be worn to school or out and about with friends!
  2. The second look pairs your plaid shirt with a navy vest, white skinny jeans, and tan booties. This look is a little dressier, but can still be worn just about anywhere! I love navy vests, so this outfit is one of my faves!
  3. Now for the dressier option. Wear your plaid button-up under a white cable knit scarf and a leather tulip skirt. If you live in an area where it gets really cold, just toss on a pair of black tights under the skirt to keep your legs nice and toasty! Who knew you could dress plaid up?!

See? You can proudly wear plaid this season! I know I will be.

For those of you that attend a private school or go to a school that requires a uniform, like a plaid skirt, you probably hate the sound of plaid.  Fortunately for you, plaid is back!  It is a design that fades in and out of the fashion world.  It can be seen on high fashion runways and on the streets of New York City and Los Angeles.  So think of your plaid uniform as high fashion!  Here’s all you need to know on rocking plaid. Chelsea Crockett- plaid shirts            A plaid button up is a must for every closet.  It is so versatile!  For that street style look, throw on a pair of high waisted shorts and a tank top.  Leave your plaid button up open and wear it over the tank.  You can roll the sleeves or leave them down!  It’s such a simple look!  If you want to go for a “grungier” look, try a pair of combat boots!  For a dressier plaid look, all you need is a little sparkle.  Throw on a sequin tank over a plaid dress or skirt.  Pair with tights and a cute pair of booties and you’re good to go!  It’s perfect for a night out on the town!  So next time you’re out shopping, pick up some plaid.  You can’t go wrong! 

XOXO,
