The 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards were just the other day and you know what that means: a red carpet full of all the hottest trends and styles of the season!  Celebrities such as Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, and the members of Fifth Harmony all rocked the red carpet this year.  Here are a few noticeable trends that are some of the hottest looks this season!

  • Metallic.  Metallic is a trend that comes and goes in waves.  Chelsea Crockett - Demi LovatoWell the wave is in, and metallic is back in full swing!  The picture on the right shows singer Demi Lovato rocking a metallic dress, jacket, and shoes on the red carpet. 
  • Jumpsuits.  Jumpsuits are super comfy and can be dressed up depending on the style of them.  Most of the jumpsuits on the red carpet were dressed up for the event, but you can find one that’s much more casual but just as stylish!
  • Neutral colors.  There wasn’t a lot of color to be seen on the carpet this year.  There were some pastels or dark tones here and there, but black, white, and other neutral colors made up the majority of the celebs’ looks!
  • Anything but dresses.  Wait, what?  I thought award shows called for the prettiest gowns and dresses?  Usually that’s the case, but this year most celebs rocked jumpsuits, rompers, or pants and a stylish shirt.

Which trend is your favorite?  Let me know below! 🙂

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!

Fall and winter are a great time to try new things with your hair color. There are some really cool color trends making their way around this season that I really love! If you are wanting to change up your hair color but need some inspiration, look no further. Here are the top 5 hair color trends this winter.

  1. Chocolate rose gold: 2016 is the year of rose gold hair! The winter version features pink tones along with deeper brown hues up top to prevent the need for a touch-up every six weeks.how-to-go-rose-gold-without-dyeing-your-hair-blond-1934101-1476217068-640x0c
  2. Sun-kissed ombre: Even though summer is over, you can still give your look a little glow and warmth! Just ask your hairdresser to add warm honey tones throughout your hair, concentrating it more towards the bottom. This will give you a healthy glow!419327415274362148_g0nitadg_c
  3. Nude hair: There are warm tones, cool tones, and then neutral tones. Nude hair means there is a balance of both warm and cool tones, which cancel each other out to create a neutral color. Neutral colors are totally trendy and easy to wear.09e5ad2f0f2023e6c3c79f7d5f165eb8
  4. Autumn red: Red hair is always in! This year’s red tones are coppery and autumnal. To keep your red hair redder longer, avoid overusing heat tools and also use a shampoo and conditioner that are made for color-treated hair.autumn-red-hair-color-5

If you want to change up your hair, these are great options this season!

I see so many beauty trends and products that make me stop and think “does that really work?”  Sometimes I branch out and give them a try and am very surprised with the results!  I picked a few different products to tell you about that surprisingly work and should be on your wish list!

  • Light Therapy Acne Mask.  Neutrogena recently released a light therapy acne mask that supposedly gets rid of acne and reduces inflammation.  I have one myself and was skeptical at first, but it really makes a difference!  It’s not only relaxing but super beneficial for your skin.
  • Peel Off Lip Stain.  Peel off lip stain really depends on which brand you try for it to be a success or not!  Some brands are messy and don’t really make a difference whereas others are long-lasting and easy to use.  Read the reviews before you buy!Chelsea Crockett - Lip Stain
  • Lip Tattoos.  As long as you use these right, they usually work!  You have to place them on your lips carefully and wait for the right amount of time.  Why not try them out for fun? 🙂
  • Eyeliner Stencils.  Makeup stencils are sometimes hit or miss when it comes to the quality of them.  I’ve used an eyeliner stencil before and they won’t give you the perfect wing most of the time, unless you master them!
  • Hair Straightening Brush.  Surprisingly, these work pretty well!  The only exception is if you have really curly hair.  Either way, these brushes are great for a quick straighten!

Which product do you want to try out?  Let me know below!

New York Fashion Week is the greatest week of the year!  Although I didn’t get to go, I still love looking at all the runway looks and trends.  This year, all of the designer’s showed off some of their most stylish collections ever!  Here’s a short recap of the week and how you can be up to date with this season’s hottest trends!Chelsea Crockett - NYFW Muted Orange Trend

  • Muted orange.  Obviously fall colors are always a huge “yes” during the season, but the orange shade above is a big one this fall!
  • Mismatch/patched jeans.  In a lot of the runway shows this year, designers featured jeans that had patches from other shades and materials of jeans.  It might sound odd, but they actually turned out super stylish and unique!
  • Formal Boho/festival wear.  The Boho style has been around for a while, but it’s usually more casual, festival wear.  This season, there’s more of an emphasize on formal Boho wear, such as flowy dresses, skirts, and blouses.
  • Sequins and ruffles.  You may be thinking… what?  I don’t mean huge ruffled dresses decked out in sparkly sequins.  What I do mean are simple, detailed looks with a little sparkle!

Which look or show was your favorite from NYFW?  Let me know below! 🙂

The Emmys is one of the most famous and watched award shows of the year.  I always love looking at all the elegant gowns and beauty trends and seeing which ones all the stars are rocking!  I’ve noticed a few common trends that seemed to stand out to me.  So, here they are! 

  • Sleek hair.  I love clean-cut sleek hairstyles that make an outfit look even more elegant than it already is!  The picture on the right shows Sarah Hyland wearing a sleek, low bun along with many other celebrities on the red carpet.Chelsea Crockett - Sarah Hyland
  • Bold lips.  I’ve always been a big fan of bold lips, and it seems like the celebs on the red carpet were too this year!  A bold lip always seals the deal when it comes to makeup, and the celebs that rocked this proved it!
  • Smoky eyes.  The smoky eye trend has been around for a while and continues to show up everywhere! 
  • Low buns.  Low buns can either be formal or messy.  At the Emmys, a lot of women were rocking the sleek, low bun hairstyle which I loved!
  • Gold tones.  Gold is one of my favorite colors to accent with.  There were a lot of gold dresses and makeup looks that were seen on the red carpet (especially gold-based eye shadow!).
  • Highlighted skin.  A lot of celebs pulled off the natural glow look along with a little highlight!  A little highlight never hurts! 🙂

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

During summer, it seems that all of the hype revolves around pricey brands and products that empty out your wallet.  You have to save up your money and then spend most of it on one product.  I’ve taken note of the most popular trending products and put together a “look for less” guidebook so you can save money but still be up to date with the cutest trends!

  • Birkenstocks.  Don’t get me wrong, these shoes have become a major trend.  Chelsea Crockett - Triangl SwimsuitBut each pair is usually around $100!  Kohl’s, Payless, Target, etc. all sell sandals with the same exact styles as Birkenstocks for prices as cheap as $15!
  • Triangl Swimsuits.  These swimsuits can be super pricey but tons of stores have started coming out with similar styles!  Target, Victoria’s Secret, and several online stores are all good places to look.
  • Rayban Sunglasses.  Raybans are usually very long-lasting, high-quality products, but if you want a cheap pair with a similar wayfarer or aviator style, check out Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, or H&M.
  • Ripped/boyfriend Jeans.  Although it’s useful to invest in a good pair of jeans, you may just want a pair to wear every once in a while.  Forever 21 sells quality jeans for much cheaper than other stores like American Eagle or Express.
  • Boho Jewelry.  Jewelry that has a Boho feel to it isn’t very hard to find!  My favorite places to look are Francesca’s and Urban Outfitters.

What’s your favorite trend of the summer?  Let me know below!

Festival season is amongst us! Coachella in April and many more to follow throughout the summer that are on my not to miss list. Festival style mainly revolves around the Boho-styled look. Lots of jewelry, fun patterns, and unique materials are fun to experiment with for your festival! Here are some pointers when picking out your outfit!

At festivals like Coachella, picking out your outfit is only the first step. Accessorizing should be your main focus in putting together your look. Fringe purses, circulaChelsea Crockett - Festival Jewelryr sunglasses, and chunky rings are all in this year. The picture on the left shows someone who took accessorizing to another level. Metallic tattoos are so cute and can be bought in gold or silver to match your jewelry. Check them out!

As far as the actual outfit goes, Boho patterns are where it’s at. Loose patterned shorts and rompers are not only comfy but stylish! I’ve recently been seeing two reoccurring trends in upcoming festival style: hats and midi cardigans. Hats are fashionable and are perfect for being in the sun all day! As for midi cardigans, ones that are patterned and light-weighed are cute and good for the heat.

If you’re going to a festival this year, which one? Also, what look are you going for? I may need some ideas :)!

Spring is amongst us! And with spring comes warm weather, flowers, and lots of new fashion trends! From the recent fashion weeks, I’ve witnessed trends that are about to make their mark in the upcoming season. Here are the ones you need to keep an eye out for!

  • Shoulder cutouts in shirts have come up in magazines and on fashion blogs more and more frequently. These type of shirts are perfect for spring and the warm weather approaching!Chelsea Crockett - Skirt Wrap
  • Wrapped skirts, like the picture on the right for example, are super stylish and aren’t the usual look that you’d expect for a skirt. They have a more unique look to them than just a basic skirt or dress.
  • Bright patterns and colors always make their way back into the fashion world starting in the spring. According to past fashion weeks, stripes especially will be in almost every store this season!
  • Victorian-inspired styles such as floral patterns and high-collar necklines are super cute and can bring a uniqueness to your outfit. Ruffles, too, are part of the Victorian style and are supposed to make a comeback this season!
  • Unique necklines, such as the high-collar neckline mentioned above, are fun to experiment with! An X-crossed neckline goes hand-in-hand with the shoulder cutouts trend. Check it out!

What trend will you be rocking this upcoming season? Let me know in the comments below!

I am 99% sure most of us are at least a little bit aware of what contouring is. For those who are maybe a little unsure of what it is all about, it involves tons of shading and highlighting using different makeup products to accentuate the curves and lines of your face. Contouring can totally transform your face and change your look. But… it is so darn difficult to do! It takes tons of work and lots of practice to get it down. Let’s face it, we have all tried to contour our faces, only to get half way and look like a clown and give up.  So, what if you want a sculpted face but do not have time (or motivation) to contour? Introducing: strobing.GigiHadid_Strobing_F

Strobing is a new kind of contouring that takes a fraction of the time and effort. Instead of using a darker color and a lighter color to shade your face with makeup, all you use is highlighter. Apply it to the center of your forehead, under your eyebrow bone, your chin, the inner corner of your eyes, and the tip of your nose. It brightens up your face and takes much less work (aka it is harder to mess it up)! You can use a dewy, sheer highlighter or you can make it super easy on yourself and use a highlighter stick. Just find a window and use a mirror to see where the sun naturally hits on your face. Then use highlighter on these spots.

Strobe away!

XOXO, Chels

I recently bought a suede dress from Target, and that is when my love for suede fashion was born. There are so many different ways to wear suede this winter, whether it is in dress, skirt, jacket, handbag, or even shoe form! Suede is a sort of retro fabric that can make any outfit feel vintage and chic. Here are my favorite ways to style suede!suede

  1. Skirts: A suede skirt is so versitile. You can wear it casually with tights, flat booties, and a sweater, or you can dress it up with a felt hat and a silky blouse! I love this feminine flare on suede. The same goes for suede dresses. They are effortlessly fashionable. You can also wear it with a button-up long sleeve shirt to make an easy, cute, casual outfit.
  2. Jackets: Want a western flare? Throw on a suede jacket. This will give any outfit a sort of western vibe. It can also spruce up a simple outfit like, say, black jeans and a simple white tee.
  3. Boots: I love a good pair of suede booties. They go with just about anything and come in so many shades! Suede wedges are also a weakness of mine. They are perfect winter accessories!

What is your favorite way to wear suede this season?

The leaves are done changing and the cold air is unfortunately setting in. Big sweaters and long sleeved shirts just aren’t going to cut it. As much as I love fall, I’m ready to dig out my winter coats! I wanted to share with you five of my favorite styles that are popular and trendy for the upcoming season!

  1. In my recent trip to New York, I tried out a knee-length coat to bear the cold weather in, and I’m absolutely obsessed!Chelsea Crockett - Coat This style of coat is extremely warm… and stylish! I also love the knee-length cardigans. I highly suggest them for not only warmth but so you can rock the hottest trend too :).
  2. Puffy coats have been around for decades, and are still sold almost anywhere. Once again, they’re extremely warm and cute to wear with a stylish pair of boots.
  3. For more on the style side of things, crop jackets are super fashionable for the season. The only downside to these is that they might not keep you as warm! You can always layer or add some warm accessories such as a scarf or earmuffs.
  4. A newer style that I’m starting to see in the fashion world is poncho coats. I’m in love! Despite the fact that they might not seem as warm as they look, they actually are! You can buy them at several stores such as Forever 21 and H&M.
  5. A vintage, timeless style that never seems to go out of style is pea coats. You can find them in any color you can think of. My favorite ones are neutral colors. Tan, black, white, or grey are usually what I shop for!

What’s your favorite type of coat? Let me know below :).

There’s an endless variety of exercise fashion. Nike shorts, Lulu Lemon headbands, and fun water bottles are just a few of the hundreds of popular trends for working out! With winter here, you won’t be wearing many shorts and tank tops on your daily runs. Since the temperatures have dropped, here’s what hot for the cold :)!

  • Patterned running tights are so cute and stylish to exercise in! Chelsea Crockett - Nike Running TightsTights, like the ones on the right, come in tons of different colors and patterns. You can find them almost anywhere including Target, Nike, Under Armour, online, etc. Some leggings are insulated with fur and others have cool reflector patterns so you can run at night! Check them out online or click here :).
  • Ear warmers are some of best things to own in the cold months. My favorite brand to sell these are LuLu Lemon. They have lots of different reversible patterns and colors. They don’t only keep your ears warm but can be worn with outfits apart from exercising!
  • High neckline hoodies and jackets have made a statement this winter. If you’re looking for one, Nike is definitely the place to find it! They have both zip-ups and hoodies that have a high neckline that keeps you warm when you’re out in the cold!
  • Lastly, puffy vests are fashionable and warm for the cold, outside temperatures. Most are insulated and zip up to protect not only your torso, but your neck from the wind and weather, too. You can find lightweight ones that are almost weightless to run in.

What’s your go-to winter exercise outfit? Let me know below!

Trends and fads come and go. They wouldn’t be called trends if they didn’t! So many styles and looks that make their way into the fashion world often go unnoticed and fly under the radar. I know I’m not the only one that finds a stylish look on Pinterest and thinks, “why have I not tried that?” or “where did that trend go?” Here are a few that shouldn’t be forgotten!

Chelsea Crockett - Turtleneck SweaterWhen someone mentions a turtle neck, we don’t always picture the cutest shirt or sweater. But I’ve found a ton of blog posts that actually rock them and make me want to buy some myself! The top on the left is a perfect example of making a turtleneck stylish and classy (especially with a topknot or high ponytail).

Another stereotypical “don’t” in the fashion world is overalls. They’re actually really fun to wear and can be worn on tons of different occasions! I even rocked a pair on the Fourth of July! I’ve even seen girls go to baseball games and wear overalls with their teams’ colors and it looks so cute!Chelsea Crockett - Fringe Shoes

Fringe is another look that you either love or hate. In my opinion, it can be totally fashionable! I’ve seen tons of magazines feature fringe shoes like the picture on the right. Wearing fringe like that is so underrated! (Side note: they’re also suede material which is another trend that goes unnoticed!)

What trends do you like that go unacknowledged like the ones above? Let me know below!

Unfortunately it’s that time when I have to start blogging about back-to-school topics (UGH!), but it’s always a necessity to know which trends to rock once school starts up again. Your style is YOUR style, but incorporating different trends into it can be fun!

Shoes are always a fun way to spruce up your look, and this year there’ll be a few trends everyone will be wearing! Last year, some people around school were wearing Chelsea Crockett - ConverseConverse, but over the summer, tons and tons of my friends have hopped on the trend as well! The high top ones are super cute and are fun to wear with boyfriend jeans and a cute shirt! Definitely buy a pair for this school year :).

Certain styles have even made their way back into the picture. Retro styles from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, such as puffy vests, Converse (haha!), and high waisted pants, have all made a comeback. Also, oversized sweaters/shirts and layering cardigans or other articles of clothing is definitely in. Although, where I live it’s still 90 degrees, but I’m sure once fall rolls around, this will start popping up everywhere!

Lastly, trends such as graphic tees, boyfriend jeans, floral patterns, denim, and plenty of others will be sure to be seen throughout your school. Let me know below what you’ll be rocking once school starts!

Ladies, can you think of one male style trend that drives you nuts? I am not a big fan of guys wearing high Nike socks with sandals. Gross. Guys look at some of our style choices in the same way, and their opinions are actually pretty amusing! Now, you should not let a guy’s opinion dictate the way you feel about yourself or your style choices, this list is just purely for fun and for you to get a little look into the male brain!

  1. Bangs: Some guys comment that bangs make them think of “mom hair.” I personally love bangs! But, some guys say FB3A9990-X2they are no bueno. Some guys even say bangs make girls look intimidating!
  2. Too-tight hair: When you pull your hair back too tight, like in a tight ponytail or bun, guys say it makes them feel like the girl is a major tomboy. But hey, if that is your thing, keep rockin it!
  3. Fragrance to the max: Don’t get me wrong, smelling great is always a must! But, If your boyfriend is being choked by your fragrance, you might need to tone it down a smidge.
  4. Too much tanner: Guys prefer you NOT to be tanned the color of Snooki.
  5. Helmet head: Too much hairspray means he cannot run his hands through your hair like Jack and Rose in the Titanic, and he is just NOT okay with that. 😉

 

Like I said earlier, you do you, who cares what guys think?! These were merely observations to give you a little giggle.

XOXO, Chels
