The velvet trend is back and better than ever for the upcoming seasons of 2017!  Velvet is one of my favorite materials because it’s so soft and comfy to rock for both casual and formal occasions.  Here’s how you can hop on the velvet bandwagon this season, too!

Chelsea Crockett - Velvet Shoes

Not only is velvet back, but there’salso a new trend within the new trend! Crushed velvet seems to be the new style that’s just a little different than regular velvet.  The material is more so in patches and more “crushed” together instead of a smoother velvet. You can wear a button-down shirt with distressed jeans for the comfy look or a crushed velvet evening dress to put a spin on your outfit!

Another way to rock velvet is with your shoes!  They’re unique and give a vintage, classy allure to any outfit. Velvet heels or boots with a block heel can complete any look! Slides, high heels, sneakers, and even slippers are appearing in this holiday-centric fabric.

If you’re looking for a homecoming or formal dress, check out a velvet look whether it be a dress, romper, or jumpsuit!  It’s a perfect way to put a spin on any ordinary outfit while being stylish at the same time! 🙂 Check out what you can do with velvet and how you can make it your own with your outfits!

Hair trends are like any other trend, they stay for a season or two then get replaced by even better ones!  This fall, there are a few upcoming looks that you just might have to try out for yourself!  Here are 5 hair trends you should know about for the upcoming season!

  • Caramel Brown.  Chelsea Crockett - Rose HairWinter is usually the time to go darker rather than lighter with your hair.  But if you don’t want to go too dark, go with a soft, caramel brown!  You can still switch up your look without going too out of your comfort zone.
  • Rose.  If you’re willing to get a little out of your comfort zone, try out a dusty rose color.  Pastel hair has become a trend in the past few years so why not hop on the bandwagon and try it out for yourself!
  • Red Accents/Highlights.  I’ve always been a little tempted to try this trend out for myself.  You can get a subtle red tint or go for a full head of vibrant, red highlights.  Whatever suits you best!
  • Bold Brown.  Instead of adding subtle brown highlights, be bold and go for a dark, chocolate brown.  Why not, right?!
  • Blonde Lowlights.  If you want something a little more natural, try blonde lowlights.  Although you can only get these if you’re already blonde, they give you that darker tint that’s perfect for the winter!

Be daring this fall and give one of these a try!  Hey, you can always dye it back right? 🙂

Glitter is one of those things you either love or hate.  As long as it’s in moderation, I like adding a little shimmer to spice up my look.  If you’re a hardcore glitter lover, then I have a few hacks that will glitter-up almost any makeup look you’re trying out.  Here are five glitter hacks to satisfy your obsession!

  • Add a tiny amount of finely powdered glitter into your finishing spray.  Chelsea Crockett - Glitter LipsAfter your makeup is complete, apply this spray to make your whole face shine!
  • You can make your own body shimmer by mixing together body oil and loose shimmer pigment.  Then apply it wherever you want to make your body glow!
  • If you want to make your lips “glittered-out,” apply a coat of lip gloss to your lips.  Then, apply finely-sorted glitter to your lips with a Q-tip.  It will stick right to the gloss!
  • Use eyelash glue as a base for any glitter accents you want to add around your face.  If you’re going for that Coachella look, you can add glitter dots all around your eyes using this method!
  • Have you ever seen the glitter roots trend?  You can paint some glitter onto your part using a small eyeshadow brush.  Look at the pic above for example!  How unique is that? (Perfect for festival season!)

Which hack is your favorite?  Let me know in the comment section below!

Overalls are a trend that have been considered “out” for a long time!  But recently, they’ve made a huge comeback anywhere from Forever21 to Express to Nordstrom.  You may be picturing the typical long, jean overalls but there are actually many different styles and colors that are much more popular! 

Chelsea Crockett - OverallsFirst, you’ll need to decide if you want long or short overalls.  There’s also the option of getting overalls with a skirt if you want to get a nicer pair!  Some pairs will have the typical pockets on the front and back of the overalls but others, like the one on the left, will have a sleeker look without pockets that you can dress up.

After you decide the style you want, you’ll have to pick a color.  I’m sure there are all different colors to choose from, but some colors I’ve seen a lot more than others.  Jean is obviously the most popular and the color you’ll see most in stores!  It matches with everything and can be a casual look for a day out with friends!  As for other colors, other popular ones include black, white, light pink, or army green.  Get one of these colors to mix it up!

Are you going to get a pair?  Let me know below which style is your favorite!

Off-the-shoulder style is one of my favorite looks.  It gives off an elegant, feminine vibe that can sometimes be hard to pull off with a simple piece of clothing.  But with off-the-shoulder shirts and dresses, you can put together a classy outfit in seconds! 

One of my favorite materials for fall is suede, so pairing it with this style is super cute!  Chelsea Crockett - Suede DressThe dress on the left is a good example of this.  Pairing it with wedged booties, a choker, and a bold lip creates a perfect dressy outfit for fall.  Maybe you have a dinner date or an event that you have to dress up for.  This look is elegant, classy, and can be dressed up or dressed down!

If you want a more casual off-the-shoulder look for fall, another fave outfit of mine is a denim, long-sleeved shirt.  Denim is another one of my favorite fall materials, whether it be a denim jacket, skirt, etc.  It’s an easy color to pair with black jeans and a cute hat!

Apart from suede dresses and denim tops, there are so many different off-the-shoulder looks you can come up with!  A lot of stores will be selling fall-inspired tops so keep an eye out! 🙂

You may or may not have heard of the newest ice roller beauty trend.  If you haven’t, well then you’re in for a treat!  I’ve always heard that ice and coolness can help certain aspects of your skin such as dark circles, wrinkles, etc.  Here’s a little insight on why you should try it out for yourself!

As I’ve said already, applying ice to breakouts, morning under-eye bags, etc. can reduce redness and swelling.  Chelsea  Crockett - Ice RollersSo with that being said, I was super intrigued when I first heard about ice rollers.  It’s described as an inexpensive cooling therapy for your skin that is proven to result in many noticeable benefits!  Applying the coolness of an ice roller increases blood flow, which reduces redness, inflammation, and tightens your skin.

If you break it down, it’s actually a very simple product.  Ice rollers are either filled with gel or water and kept in the freezer to maintain their temperature.  They have many short and long term benefits including wrinkle and pore reduction and minimizing puffy morning eyes!  Some are as cheap as $15 while others can creep up to $70 or $80!

Ice rollers are a much bigger product in Asia and Europe than they are in America, but they are starting to make their debut!  Buy one and watch the magic happen for yourself!

No, the title of this article does not mean to go put your makeup in the oven. It’s a trending way to increase the wear of your makeup and make your skin look flawless! Of course, you’ll have to carry out a few steps to complete the look.

First, you need to find a concealer and foundation that match your skin type and color. Make sure the foundation is a loose powder, this is a necessity! Start how you wouldChelsea Crockett - Loose Powder start any other makeup look by applying and blending your concealer. Next apply your loose powder by layering it on your cheeks, forehead, or wherever else you please. Then, let it sit for about 5 minutes. Some websites say 1-3, others say 5-10. I recommend a happy medium! After waiting, dust off the remaining powder. This leaves you with a thin layer of nicely set powder.

You might be worried that it looks caked on or over the top. Try it out for yourself! As long as you don’t do this to your whole face, you should be just fine! If you want to take it a step further, finish with a setting spray. It’s that simple! Try it out for yourself :).

How to Style Black on Black

I think wearing black on black is so chic and sophisticated. But, there is a difference between wearing all black and looking sophistocated and wearing all black and looking grungy. We want to lean more towards classy and chic, so here are a few ways to do just that!

  1. Play with shades: There are different shades of black. When I say that, I mean there is lighter blacks that are more dark gray-ish and then there are pitch blacks. My advice is to play with different shades of black and dark gray in an outfit to add dimension and break up the black.black
  2. Work with patterns: Wear black ripped jeans with a quilted black leather jacket and plain black or dark gray tee. The different patterns and textures of the pieces will keep things interesting and distract from the solomness of the dark shade. You can also wear black tops with white trim or patterns to add some accent!
  3. Go bold: This look is for the girl that knows wearing all black is an art and takes planning, and she embraces it. Like I said earlier, there is a fine line between looking sophistocated and going too overboard with wearing all black. In this outfit we go bold and we pair plain black skinnies with a classic leather biker jacket and black booties. We can even toss in a black handbag with silver zippers and snaps, so that the accents on the handbag accentuate the oufit. The silver accents on the buckles of the boots and the snaps on the jacket and handbag help break up the black.

Remember to keep things classy and chic when planning an all black ensemble. Be bold, and be brave when making fashion choices! 😉

Every girl has their preferred style of purses. You may be one to throw on a cross body with boyfriend jeans and a tee. Or maybe you just purchased an on-the-shoulder bag to rock with your new dress! Well, if you haven’t heard of them yet, Chelsea Crockett - Bucket PursesI’m going to introduce you to bucket purses, the newest and hottest trend!

If you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, look at the picture on the left. These purses bunch at the top and either sling over the shoulder like the one on the left or have a small loop strap to hang on your elbow. I’m obsessed with all the different patterns and colors you can get them in. Some you can even find with fringe or different designs! With fall coming up, they’ll definitely be a necessity in all of your closets! One of my favorite looks I’ve seen with these is a light brown bag with boyfriend jeans, an oversized sweater, and booties. It’s the perfect look for autumn and the purse completes the look!

For where you can find them, it’s pretty simple! For one, Nordstrom’s selection is huge. From a fringe bag to simple and black (or even a mix between the two!), they have almost any bucket purse style you can think of! You can also find them at Forever 21, Macy’s, J. Crew, etc. Or you can check them out on Amazon, just click here!

Let me know what you think!

Love, Chelsea

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!

What other ways do you rock a flannel? Share with me below! – Chels

Tattoos are very trendy right now. Although I can appreciate a pretty tattoo, I don’t want one myself. Just a little too permanent for me! I love that there are temporary options for people like me who don’t want to fully commit to a tattoo! Here are a few of my favorite temporary tattoo methods that will allow you to express yourself in a non-permanent way!

Flash tattoos: Flash tattoos are all the rage recently! They are metallic temporary tattoos that come in a variety of shapes and patterns. I like to wear them to concerts or out with friends when I want to feel edgy or to add some uniqueness to my ensemble! When I was out in LA for BeautyCon I saw SO many girls wearing flash tattoos!tumblr_n9qd2924oM1toza49o1_500

Henna: I love henna tattoos because they last a lot longer than flash tattoos and other temporary tattoos and you can make super fun patterns with them! I love how boho I feel when I have a trendy henna tattoo.

DIY tattoos: There are also cool diy temporary tattoos like the “Sharpie and hairspray” one! Draw your desired design onto your skin with a Sharpie. Wait for the marker to dry completely and then rub baby powder onto the design. Spray the tattoo with hairspray and you are all set!

So, if you want the fun expression of a tattoo without the permanence, try these fun temporary tat ideas!
