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!

Swimsuit Cover-Up Style

I am convinced that I belong near the beach. I am going to Cali for college, so my beach dreams are coming true! I love beach fashion, from swimsuits to sunglasses to sandals. There is one more piece of beachwear that may just be my favorite, and that is coverups! Here are 3 of my favorite swimsuit coverup styles this season.

  1. Lacey: Lacey coverups are fun and feminine. I love that you can still see some of your swimsuit peeking through the holes in the lace. If you prefer a delicate, girly coverup then this one is for you!kimono
  2. Kimono: If you are a boho kind of gal, then the beach kimono is right up your alley. This look is so effortless and breezy, plus kimonos come in a million different colors and patterns so you are bound to find one you love!
  3. Sheer: To me, this look just screams “beach.” If you like high fashion or never go anywhere without being dressed up and accessorized, then I think you will dig this coverup. It is long, which gives it a more “dressy” look, and is sheer so it gives you a beachy, fun vibe as well.

Coverups are just another way to show your personal style when you are headed to the beach!

I love sheer blouses. They are loose, flowy, and flirty! A lot of times, though, I am kind of reluctant to don a sheer blouse because I don’t know what to wear under it! I want to be modest in the way that I dress, and sometimes it is hard to know how to achieve this goal when wearing sheer clothing. Here are 3 tips for when you wear sheer clothing.

  1. Layer it: Of course, when you are wearing sheer shirts you want to layer them. Sheer shirts with nothing under tumblr_m8xzv8VJIr1rbicmeo1_400them leave little to the imagination, which is not our goal! Try pairing your sheer shirt with a stylish tank or crop top. Or you can even layer your favorite simple cami!
  2. Keep it loose: Sheer blouses are best worn loose. The tighter the sheer shirt, the more revealing it is. Your sheer look should be relaxed and floaty, so keep your sheer shirt chic by wearing it in a looser fitting style.
  3. Button it up: Look chic when you wear your sheer blouse by buttoning it up all the way. When you wear your sheer shirts in this modest manner, you balance out the sheer nature of the shirt. Tuck your sheer top into a pencil skirt or toss on a blazer for a more professional look.

Now you can rock sheer shirts without a problem!

The Many Uses Of The Common Button Up

 What would you say if a button up could turn a dress into a skirt, be turned into a crop top, and be used as a jacket?  While it may sound too good to be true, it is possible!  Button ups are a must for every closet and have so many purposes.  I’ll show you how to turn these shirts into a completely different outfit!  Get the most use out of your clothing!

            To make a summer skirt, put on a sun dress or tight body con dress and wear a sheer or solid button up over it.  Button your shirt all the way up, but leave the last two buttons unbuttoned.  Tie the bottom of your shirt and it will give the illusion that you are wearing a skirt and top!  To make a winter skirt, do the same thing, but wear a maxi dress.  Pair it with a pair of combat boots and you’re good to go!  Making a crop top is very similar.  Tie your top the same and pair with high waisted shorts.  It’s such an effortless look!Chelsea Crockett- button up with dress

            Lastly, a button up can be used as the perfect light summer jacket.  I love using denim button ups and bring it almost everywhere.  Whenever you get chilly, slip it on and leave it open and you’ve got a quick jacket!  It’s pretty stylish too!  Check out these button ups from Amazon and comment below if you have another fun way to rock a button up!

Xoxo,
