When winter starts to roll in, there are certain things to do to prepare your closet for the cold weather ahead.  I always make sure my wardrobe is ready for the season, whether it be summer or winter.  Make sure you check these essentials off your list so you can be ready, too! 

  • Change your closet from warm to cold.  My closet used to get extremely cluttered with all of my summer and winter clothes stuffed together.  Switch out all of your shorts and sandals for pants and booties!Chelsea Crockett - Winter Outift
  • Purchase a neutral, warm coat that will go with a majority of your outfits.  Finding a coat that is both stylish and keeps you warm is key for the cold weather!
  • Also, purchase a good pair of snow/rain boots.  Especially if you’re in college, walking to class in the snow without a good pair of boots will be awful!
  • Know how to layer.  When it comes to looking stylish in the winter, layering up with different shirts and jackets is a necessity.  I sometimes find it hard to find a cute outfit to wear and be warm at the same time.  Knowing how to layer like a pro is the perfect way to achieve this!
  • Purchase the perfect winter accessories that go with your style.  Accessories such as beanies, scarves, high socks, tights, etc. are the best way to spice up your outfit and make your outfit warmer at the same time!  You get the best of both worlds, right?  

I hope you’re all prepared for an awesome winter ahead!

Usually when I think of cold weather fashion I think of shades like white, grey, brown and black and muted, darker tones. After the fall colors fade away and the winter the skies are gray, and if you don’t like the cold, your mood is gray as well! One way to drown out the late fall/winter blues is to add color to youimagesr wardrobe. Here are a few ways to add colors back into your ensembles.

  1. Coats: Who says coats have to be neutral colors all of the time? Not me! I love to wear a statement coat, such as my red pea coat, to work some color back into my outfits!
  2. Scarves: Scarves are a great way to spice up your outfit. Wear a statement scarf with a solid shirt to add some dimension.
  3. Hats: I love wearing hats in the fall and winter, and if you follow me on Instagram you totally know what I am talking about! They are a great way to stay warm and look cute at the same time.
  4. Handbags: By adding in a colored handbag to your outfit you can effortlessly slide in some color.
  5. Sweaters: Colored sweaters… a total yes! I have a coral colored sweater that I just love, and I wear it with dark jeans and riding boots for an easy, comfy chilly weather outfit!

How are YOU adding color into your cold-weather wardrobe?

Every girl dreams of Jasmine-like locks. Although we can’t all have that long, thick, glossy mane Aladdin’s pretty princess has, we can fake it until we do! If you have short hair and cannot wait until your hair grows out, here are a few tips on how to make your hair look longer than it actually is…without using extensions!

  1. Say yes to scarves: Most of the time, just adding a simple scarf around your neck can make your hair appear longer. Plus, as an added bonus, the scarf is just plain cute!FullSizeRender (2)
  2. Simply straighten: This is especially true if you have curly hair. By straightening your hair you can diminish frizz and increase length!
  3. Long live the layers: When you go to get a haircut, add some layers throughout your hair. This accentuates the longer pieces of hair and makes them stand out.
  4. Half-it: By sectioning off your hair and pulling the top half back you can make your hair to appear to have more length. Plus it’s an all-around cute hairstyle!

Have no fear, short-haired heroines! You, too, can have long hair.

Are you hip with the latest scarf trend? Blanket scarves are my favorite scarf trend yet. They are chunky, cozy, and crazy cute. There are quite a few ways to wear these expansive scarves, and I will highlight a few of my favorites. Here is the 411 on how to rock a blanket scarf.30-blanket-scarves-bloggers

The “normal” way: This is just your average every-day way to wear a scarf. Because blanket scarves are quite a bit thicker than normal scarves, they take a bit getting used to and can be a bit tricky to tie at first, but with a little help from Pinterest you will be a pro blanket scarf wearer in no time!

Belted: I love this way to style blanket scarves because it is classy and unique. Drape your blanket scarf over your shoulders and let the ends of the scarf hang down the front of your body. Next, take a belt and place it over the scarf and secure it around your waist. Now you have a super cute, unique way to stay warm and rock the scarf! This style almost makes the scarf act as a vest. Wear with nice dark jeans and riding boots for a classy look.

As a shawl: In this style you just wear the scarf around your shoulders as a shawl. This is a nice casual way to keep cozy and cute. Wear your scarf-shawl over a simple long-sleeved shirt with jeans and boots!

Now go rock those blanket scarves, ladies! I found a few adorable ones at Charlotte Russe, Just FYI 🙂

XOXO, Chels

 When you think of a scarf, you probably think of cold weather, don’t you?  A large coat, wool hat, and boots are usually what a scarf is paired with.  Surprisingly, a scarf CAN be worn in the summer.  Summer scarves are super cute and come in a variety of colors and prints.  These light weight scarves can be purchased almost anywhere; Forever21 carries a handful of cheap, summer scarves.Chelsea Crockett- Summer Scarves

            Summer scarves can be perfectly paired with a sun dress or a pair of high waisted shorts with a tank.  Adding a scarf to your look will give it an extra edge and pop of color!  Wrap the scarf around your neck multiple times, wrap it around once, or fold it in a square and then wrap it for a triangle look in the front.  The material used for these summer scarves are very light, so don’t worry, you won’t be sweating!  Go out and buy a sweet, summer scarf to pair with your cool summer looks.  You’ll guarantee to step up your summer style game.

 Now we all know that scarves are a great accessory to go around your neck.  Whether it’s to keep you warm or dress up a look, a scarf is an item that every girl must own!  One of the greatest things about scarves is that they have more than one purpose.  I’m going to break down some creative ways to wear your scarf…..the possibilities are endless!

            Chelsea Crockett- braid scarfWho would’ve thought that a scarf would be a great hair accessory?  Start by putting the scarf around your head and tie it behind your hair.  Pull all of your hair, including the left over strands of the scarf, to one side.  Start braiding your hair into a long braid, incorporating the ends of the scarf into your braid.  This will add a pretty pop of color in your long, beautiful braid!  It’s such a fun way to brighten any look.

            Another unique way to wear a scarf is to turn it into a bracelet.  If you have three small square scarves, lay them all side by side and tie all three together at the end.  Start braiding the three scarves together until the braid is complete.  You could even braid in a strand of “bling”!  Tie it around your wrist and there you go!  It’s that simple!   Hope you’ll try out these two different ways to wear a scarf.  Show off your creation to your friends!Chelsea Crockett- Scarf Bracelets

Hi Girls,

            Infinity scarves are one of the most popular cold weathered accessories this year.  They not only keep you warm, but they are extremely stylish.  One of the best parts about the infinity scarf is they can be worn causally or dressy and are extremely easy to put on.  I’ll give you the full low down on how to wear an infinity scarf.

            One of my favorite ways to wear an infinity scarf is to style it with an over-sized sweater.  I love to simply wrap the scarf around twice creating a thick scarf around the neck.  Even throwing it on with an army jacket and combat boots adds a soft touch to a rather edgy outfit.  Not to mention they are very comfortable and warm.  If you like wearing your scarf a more traditional way, place the scarf on each shoulder and pull one side through the other.  This is how you would wear a regular scarf. Chelsea Crockett- infinity scarf

            Picking the right color and/or print is also very important.  If you are wearing a dark outfit, keep your infinity scarf a dark jewel toned or black color.  Although the scarf is cute, you don’t want it to be the main focus of our outfit.  If you’re picking a printed scarf, then keep your outfit to solid colors only.  This allows the scarf to be the main focus, plus you don’t want to mix prints.  Make sure to add infinity scarves to your everyday winter wardrobe.  You will get constant compliments!

XOXO,

3 Ways To Tie Scarves

Hooray for scarf season! Because this chilly yet awesomely fashionable season is upon us, I thought that it would be appropriate to give y’all some ideas on how to tie your scarves in a few different styles so you are not stuck wearing it in the same old loop all of the time!

The first way that I am going to teach you is for scarves that have tassels or pretty trimmings. First, you place the middle of the scarf at the front of your chest and hold the two ends with your hands. Take the two ends and criss-cross the ends of the scarf in the back. Next, bring the ends back around and tie them in the front. This style is super cute and gives off a kind of western vibe because it looks a little like a kerchief around your neck.chelsea crockett scarf

The second way is to make your own infinity scarf out of a regular scarf. Just tie the ends of your scarf together and viola! Most times regular scarves are cheaper than infinity scarves, so just make your own! Infinity scarves are so trendy and warm!chelsea crockett infinity scarf

The last way is to make a half bow out of your scarf. Adorable, right? Start with a scarf centered around the back of your neck. Make a loose knot on one side of the scarf near your collarbone. Leave a keyhole in the knot. Grab the other side in the middle and slide the middle through the keyhole, creating a loop. Tighten your original knot and fluff the one-sided bow!chelsea crockett bow scarf

Now go out and rock those fab scarves, ladies!

            Hey insiders!

            As seasons change, so does our wardrobe.  This time of year, the weather gets cooler which causes us to pull out our scarves and sweaters.  Recently, I’ve seen many popular and stylish accessory trends spread throughout magazines, fashion websites, and even at schools worn by kids and teens.

           Chelsea Crockett - Fall Accessories Hats are accessories that can be rocked in any season, but there are a couple ones that are necessities to have during this time of year.  Beanies are casual, cute, and can be worn to all your fall events such as bonfires, football games, etc.  Whether they’re fitting to your head or hang off the back, you can style your beanie however you prefer!

            Since most schools don’t allow hats, teens have to find other fun ways to accessorize and show their individuality.  Scarves are the perfect way to do so.  With all their fun colors, patterns, and styles you can add some color to your outfit.  In case you don’t know, infinity scarves are definitely a popular trend.  Because they don’t have an end, you simply wrap them around your neck two to three times and you’re set!

            Lastly, it’s time to pull out your autumn handbags!  Colors such as browns, yellows, tans, and oranges look great on purses during this time of year.  Of course, you can change up your look with crossbody bags, hobo bags, or shoulder bags.    

            So as you see the colors of the leaves start to change, it’s time to show off these trends!

Hi Lovelies,

            So I’m sure that many of you have school uniforms, especially if you go to a private school.  Even public schools have restrictions on what you can wear.  Sometimes it can be hard to show your individuality and express yourself through your fashion and style in a school setting.  I’ll give you a quick guide to bring your own style to school, without breaking dress code.

  • Have fun school accessories!  A fun backpack is a stylish way to carry your books.  Pick up a fun colored or printed backpack, like cheetah and carry your books in style!  It’ll also add a pop of color to even the dullest outfit.
  • Throw on an awesome pair of shoes!  Sandals and boots are my favorite shoes around.  They come in every style and color and some are even “blinged” out.  Everyone will be impressed with your new kicks!
  • Bling yourself out!  Don’t be afraid to throw on a pretty necklace and some crazy earrings to dress up your dull school uniform.  You canChelsea Crockett- backpack never go wrong with jewelry!

Throwing on a scarf can add a pop of color too!

I hope this little guide will help you bring your own individual style to a school uniform.  Remember, don’t break school code, but have fun with your style!
