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!

Have you ever looked at someone and been inspired by their style?  Well what if you became the one inspiring others?!  Being a style standout is an extremely honorable role!  This means you’re daring with your style and wear things others wouldn’t.  It also takes a lot of creativity!  If you want to be a style standout, follow a few of my style tips in order to be at the top of the fashion world!Chelsea Crockett- studded flats

Don’t be afraid to wear color and prints!  Black, brown, and grey can get boring so styling yourself with brighter clothes!  Try adding fun accessories like a striped purse or pink earrings.  A little color never hurt!  Another great way to add to your signature style is through your shoe choice.  Throw on a fun pair of sneakers or stylish wedges to a simple outfit if you don’t have time to get ready.  Never be afraid to be bold.  Always experiment with your style and go out of the box.  It’s important not to care too much about what others think of you!

Invest your money in your most valuable pieces!  Purses and shoes are always a great investment…you can never grow out of them.  Save up for that purse you’ve been dying to have.  Most designer purses are timeless, so it’s okay to splurge!  Plus, everyone will be dying to get their hands on it!  Another way to be a style standout is to layer!  Instead of just wearing a sweater, throw on a scarf or wear a button up under it.  An over-sized coat is always a great addition as well!  Be bold, be exciting, and be out there with your style!

Who said you can’t look cute going to the gym?  Well, if you’re used to wearing running shorts and a t-shirt, it’s time to step up your gym style!  Don’t worry about putting on makeup and doing your hair, go all natural; but when it comes to your gym clothing, try changing it up with a few of my chic gym wardrobe tips!Chelsea Crockett- gym clothes

  • Don’t be afraid to wear prints.  Go all out!  Try a fun pair of printed leggings and pair them with your favorite bright colored tank.   You’ll be a style stand out!
  • If you’re wearing leggings or a type of shorts that go further up, like to your belly button, try a crop top.  It’s okay to show off your toned stomach!  Work it!
  • Layer it up!  For colder days, wear a pair of leggings under your shorts and a form fitting jacket with your tank.  Even try wearing a vest for brisk days!
  • Neon, neon, neon!  Be bright this year in the gym.  Throw away those dull colored gym clothes and swap them for some hot pinks, bright oranges, and lemon yellows.  The brighter the better.
  • Who said matching is lame?  If you have a pair of awesome Nike tennis shoes, don’t be ashamed of matching your outfit to your shoes.  You go for it girl!

Next time you hit up the gym, you’ll be a sweaty fashionista!
