Think of all the daring, bold trends there are out in the world. There’s hundreds! Some are a little too crazy but others are just the right amount of unique that you can totally pull them off. There are some popular trends that I’m doubtful about trying, but there’s no reason to be! Here’s some encouragement to try some of these outside-the-box trends.

  • Most of the time, black nail polish is referred to as “dark” or even “high fashion.” It’s made a total come back in 2015! Everyone has started to wear it, and you can too! It makes a statement and gives off a chic look.Chelsea Crockett - Overalls
  • Winged eyeliner can either look gorgeous or be completely messed up in the process. As long as you do just the right amount, you can 100% pull it off! I was a little iffy about trying it at first, but now I can’t wear it enough!
  • This trend is pretty debatable, but overalls have made a surprising come back! My favorite type is a pair like the ones on the right! Throw it on with a cute pair of sneakers to get the retro look.
  • Big hats are more of spring/summer trend, but you’re in luck! In most parts of the US, spring weather has come a little bit early! Some girls think big hats aren’t for them or are too different to wear. You can totally pull them off! They’re super stylish and are extra cute with a sundress. If you go to the beach or pool, throw one on with your cover-up! Too fab :).

What are some other trends you dare to try? Share with me below!

If you’re like me, then you’re an avid shoe lover!  Besides diamonds, shoes are a girl’s best friend.  It doesn’t matter where you’re from or where you’re visiting, you can always spark up conversation about shoes with any girl!  Although we all share this same connection, the most popular type of shoe differs between countries.  Fashion, although a sort of universal language, can be very, very different. Chelsea Crockett- clogs

Ever owned a pair of clogs, Uggs, Hunters, or cowboy boots?  These are serious staples for different countries.  Clogs from Sweden, Uggs from Australia, Hunter rain boots from England, and cowboy boots from Texas have made their way around the world!  From the runway to the street, they’ve become some of the hottest trends.  College and high school campuses are flooded with Hunter Wellies on a rainy day, country concerts are full of girls rocking their favorite pair of cowboy boots, and thanks to the reinvention of the clog, throwing on a pair of clog wedges is all the rage in the summer.  Another fun international shoe is the moccasin from Canada!  Love throwing on a pair of these with a boho top of an easy and cute outfit look!

Crazy to think that some of your everyday shoes originated thousands of miles away!  The world has some amazing ideas!

XOXO,

Chelsea

2014 was a year full of fun, stylish trends. Whether it was a crop set outfit with a pair of knee-high boots or edgy DIY shorts and converse, this year’s trends are sure to top even the cutest of 2014. So, what’s going to be hot (or not!) in the New Year? Here are a few predictions made by fashion magazines and icons across the planet!

Chelsea Crockett - Suede JacketAccording to Vogue, suede should be making a killer comeback! This material is different from most, with its warm, fuzzy cloth. It has a vintage look to it that’s classy and mature like the jacket on the left! Another look that is expected to pop up in the spring, is dark denim. Jean, jean, and more jean! Keep an eye out and you might just notice it in every fashion magazine :)!

Indy style was huge last year. Now the Bohemian style is making its mark! Colorful patterns and bright colors are great for the summer. Layering jewelry such as dangle necklaces and bracelets is another fashion statement brought from 2014 to ’15. So cute!

According to Glamour, one-shoulder shirts and dresses are coming back into the fashion world for spring and summer. Soon they’ll be in almost any store at the mall :)! Colors such as army green and yellow are both expected to be seen on the runways throughout the year.

So… pay attention to your fashion magazines and style blogs and you might just see these trends when you least expect it!

Have you ever noticed how every year there are new fashion trends that become extremely popular for a short amount of time?  Well those are called fads!  Most of the time they are super cute fashion ideas or clothing items, but they usually don’t last very long.  I’ll break down a few of this year’s biggest fads to help you stay on top of the fashion world, but to also help you save money, so you don’t buy too much of something that may go out of style quickly!Chelsea Crockett- peplum

Peplum tops are one of the prettiest and most feminine tops a girl can own!  With its flattering shape and fun patterns and colors, who wouldn’t want to own a peplum or two?!  Unfortunately, this trend won’t last very long.  Now, don’t go throw out your peplums and definitely make sure you own one or two.  It will slowly fade.  Enjoy your pretty top for the time being!

Ombré hair, in my opinion, is one of the coolest hair trends of all time!  It’s such an edgy look that can be dressed up or down.  Although this look is pretty awesome, those who have it may be dying their hair back to a solid color eventually.  This look became popular fast, which means it will die out fast as well.  It’s definitely not a timeless look, but it’s fun for the time being!Chelsea Crockett- wedge sneaker

Last, sneakers that have a heel are one of the craziest fads around.  They were first seen on celebrity kids and teens and shortly began popping up in shoe stores everywhere!  They are the craziest looking shoes!  Those who own these shoes will get tired of them fast.  This trend will not last long at all!  I hope this little guide to fads helped.Smile  Enjoy these quirky and fun trends while they last, but don’t buy too many of them!

Xoxo,

Chels

If you don’t own any of these fads, but would like to, check out these items from Amazon!

Fashion trends are constantly coming and going. For a month straight you’ll see everyone wearing the same style of top or shoes or pants, and then eventually no one is wearing them anymore!  When you love a fashion trend so much, it can be deadly to your bank account, since your purchasing clothes that will soon go out of style.  It’s time to break down the major Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to fashion trends. Chelsea Crockett- peplum top trend

  • DO invest in a few key pieces from that trend. DON’T invest all your money into buying every item of clothing from a specific trend. Soon enough that style will no longer be fashionable.
  • DO understand what looks good and what doesn’t look good on your body shape. DON’T purchase something trendy if it doesn’t suit your body correctly.
  • DO check out the different trends in each season and give them a try. DON’T obsess over being the trendiest person in the room.

Fashion trends can be fun to keep up on! The fashion world is forever changing and keeps us guessing.  Any idea what the next biggest trend may be??

XOXO,

Chelsea

Have you ever heard the saying “less is more?” Well… this also applies to fashion, too! Sometimes the cutest outfits, are the simplest. Since fall is the time to break out boots and sweaters, here are some quick, autumn outfits to throw on that are simple yet stylish.

Chelsea Crockett - Sweater CardiganAs a girl, I know you can never have too many sweaters! An oversized sweater is the comfiest thing to throw on with leggings without looking like you just rolled out of bed. With a chunky necklace, jeans, and riding boots, you can dress up your outfit; however, put on some combat boots and leggings and you’re set for a more casual outing.

Now I might sound like I’m a little obsessed with sweaters, but big sweater cardigans are perfect for a casual, fall look. A sweater like the one on the left is super trendy with a pair of boots and a scarf. (Tip: Try to find clothing that is warm colors such as reds, browns, yellows, etc. It gives your look 10x more of a fall feel than pastel or neon colors.)

Lastly, next time you’re at Forever 21 or even Target, pick up a couple plaid or denim button ups! The cutest way to rock these is with a pair of leggings and a top-knot or a high bun. For the denim button ups, dress them up with a chunky necklace or a scarf :)!

Let me see what simple and stylish outfits you put together for the fall! Or… let me know in the comment section below!

Are you wondering what fall trends are in store for your luscious locks? I’ve got a list that will give you an inside look on what trends are to come this Fall.

Braids! This Fall, braids are coming in hot! Braids are a great way to pull your hair out of your face and make a fashion statement at the same time! Perfect! Some great braids are fishtail braids, French braids, Dutch braids, and just your everyday original three stranded braid!

 2013-04-25_18-51-35

Beach waves! I looove this trend! It looks so effortless and can make you look like you just came from a day at the beach. Some ways to achieve this look are to apply “Not Your Mother’s” Beach Babe spray to your hair (grab it here:http://tiny.cc/NotYourMothers_BeachSpray). It works amazing and smells like coconuts! Bonus! Another way is to loosely curl a few strands of your hair, let them cool, and then brush them out. Easy!

 Chelsea Crockett Beach Waves

 

Low Buns! Just by pulling your hair into a bun at the nape of your neck can instantly give you a sweet, put-together look. You can do this with a regular bun, or you could even braid your hair and then twist THAT into a low bun!

Now that you know what trends are in store for you this fall, you can rock these looks knowing you are real fashionistas.

School Dances is just around the corner.  I know you want to know the latest styles and trends to look your best.  My advice would be to stay true to yourself!  Do you like short and fun or long and classic?  The hottest colors and styles are something you can decide while staying within your budget.  After deciding upon a dress, your shoes will be the next decision.

Chelsea Crockett - Prom DressesYour shoes can be fun to choose but remember you have to wear them all evening long.  Be sure to choose a pair that fits well and compliments your dress.  Are you looking for strappy, heeled sandals, pumps or flats?  Silver, gold, or nude can top off any evening dress!  If your gown was affordable, then splurge on an adorable pair of shoes!

Last, but not least, your hair and makeup will be a big decision.  Will you decide on an up-do or go with long, flowing locks?  It’s always fun to make an appointment to have your hair done.  Every girl likes a little pampering!  Be sure to look at some of my beauty tips and tutorials for your evening makeup!  You can go for dramatic eyes and lips or soft hues with light glosses for your lips.  Whatever your decision is….Embrace your own style and make memories with special friends!

XOXO, Chelsea

Last Sunday was one of the greatest award shows out of the whole year! Hundreds of celebrities gathered for the Video Music Awards in California and I know I wasn’t the only one wishing to be there! With homecoming dances just around the corner, what better way to get some inspiration than from the hottest dress trends at the VMAs?

Black and white dresses seemed to be a norm on the red carpet this year. Chelsea Crockett - Fifth HarmonyThe entire Fifth Harmony clan had a perfect variety of simple, yet classy, black and white dresses. Other celebrities such as Kylie Jenner and Beyoncé pulled off the look just as well.

Another common seen trend at the VMAs was shimmer and sequins. If you want a fun look for homecoming, I definitely suggest a little glitter! Jennifer Lopez looked stunning in her sparkling dress! If you like some shimmer, it’s a perfect way to dress up your look for homecoming without going too over the top.

Now this last “trend” isn’t exactly what most people would think of when I say the word trend… but it’s probably the best one there is! Being yourself is something that each celebrity has definitely stayed committed to at the VMAs. If you look through the red carpet pictures, you’ll see tons of different styles, patterns, and pieces. No matter who it was, they stuck with their own style not caring of what people thought. I encourage you to do the same when picking out your signature dress :)!

Fashion trends are the only things I know to come and go as fast as they do.  As of right now, two of my favorite looks that are new for this season are rompers and jumpsuits!  They are feminine and flirty!  Both are perfect when you want to roll out of bed and not think about pairing or matching because they are all one piece.  Rompers are fun to throw on to go shopping with a cute pair of sandals.  They come in all colors with scalloped edges, fringed fronts, belted waists, etc.  So if you are tired of your old sundresses, you can pop on a fashion-forward romper!  They also make super cute swimsuit cover ups!Chelsea Crockett - Romper

Jumpsuits are usually a little dressier and more mature than a romper.  They come in many different styles.  Some have fun halter tops with palazzo pants.  You can flaunt solid, floral, or tribal prints.  The options are endless.  They are perfect for a tropical vacation or a memorable night out.  You can dress them up with strappy heeled sandals and a gorgeous blazer, or dress them down with flat sandals and a denim jacket.  It’s obvious that us girls like to sport the newest trends.  Jumpsuits and rompers used to be “fashion don’ts” but now they are “fashion dos”!  So, what are you waiting for?  Start shopping!

XOXO, Chelsea

It’s funny to look how many trends we have now that developed from certain decades in the 1900’s. High-waisted shorts, for example, were huge in the 70’s and are extremely popular now! It seems as if the 70’s and 80’s get the most recognition for having so many trends brought back nowadays, but what most people don’t see is how many 90’s trends we all wear every day!

  • Glasses and sunglasses are all bigger now. The circle rims and the “hipster” style are actually brought back from the 90s. My mom and dad used to wear these glasses when they first had me!
  • Remember those 90’s shows where everyone had their jackets tied around their waists? Well it seems that trend has made its way back into the picture. If you’ve seen people who can pull off the street style, then you’ve probably seen them wearing a jacket or shirt tied around their waists, especially plaid button-ups!
  • Speaking of plaid, it became extremely popular and made its way back into the fashion world in the 90’s. Now, it’s back again and everyone wears oversized flannel shirts and plaid button ups!Chelsea Crockett - Chuck Taylors
  • In the late 80’s and early 90’s your closet was not complete without a pair of Chuck Taylors. Converse made this style extremely popular and I’m starting to see more and more teenagers wearing them again!  To check them out, click here!

What other 90’s trends have you seen make their way back into the fashion world? Let me know below!

Hair is one of the biggest statements of a girl. An edgy cut sometimes gives off an outgoing feel to that person. Other times, long curls and a bow could come off as sweet, shy, or flirty. The color of a girl’s hair also plays a big role in what kind of a personality they may have. Here are a few hair trends for you to experiment with this summer… if you’re daring enough :)! For the brunettes that want to change it up a bit, I have the perfect way to do just that. Adding a reddish tint throughout your hair that isn’t too much but just noticeable is super cute and edgy. Ariana Grande is only one example of someone that can pull this color off perfectly!

For those who do not want to fully dye their hair or color it, hair chalk is a great substitute to try out a look. You can buy hair chalk at almost any beauty store such as Sephora, Sally’s Beauty Supply, or Ulta. The name itself is pretty self-explainable. You buy whatever color chalk you want and rub it on the parts you want your hair to be “dyed.” It’s only temporary and washes out when you shower. It’s a perfect way to put a certain look through a test-run if you are curious as to how it would look on you!  Check it out here:http://tiny.cc/HairChalk!Chelsea Crockett - Hair Chalk Another trend that is very unique but still stylish is pastel hair. This works better for really light blondes. Adding a streak of light pink or purple in the under layer of your hair is super cute! Or you could even try dying the ends of your hair a baby blue!

            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!

            Hey ladies!  One of the newest and hottest trends of the season are maxi dresses and skirts.  They seemed to have spread throughout teens and slowly replaced sundresses and short skirts. Chelsea Crockett - Maxi Dresses

            Maxi dresses are super fashionable and can be dressed up or dressed down.  Even just a day at the mall is perfect for throwing on your favorite maxi dress.  You can pair your dress with heels, wedges, or, to make it a little more casual, flats.  My favorite places to shop for maxis are Francesca’s Collections, Charlotte Russe, and, of course, Forever 21.  The best thing about shopping at these places is that they’re very affordable but still extremely cute.

            Another hot trend that I’ve, yet again, seen almost everywhere is maxi skirts.  They’re very similar to maxi dresses, but you can match it with a crop top or another cute shirt!  My favorite way to wear these are with a chunky necklace and a crop top to add to my skirt! 

                                                                  Enjoy! – Chelsea

            Hey girls!  I know it’s hard to believe, but fall is only weeks away!  This means it’s almost time to ditch the shorts and tanks for jeans and jackets.  The trends this season are some of my favorites and I want to share them all with you!

            As I’ve mentioned in another one of my articles, studs are super trendy and fun for this season!  Chelsea Crockett - Studded OutfitAnything such as shoes, pants, shirts, and accessories always look better with a little shine!  People have gotten really creative and even tried studs on their nails and phone cases!

            Prints such as cheetah and snakeskin are yet another thing you’ll see throughout almost any fashion magazine.  Even patterns such as spots or stripes are hot in Hollywood.

           Chelsea Crockett - Two Toned Pants Like denim’s not enough, coated denim is a stylish and chic trend.  For those of you that are unsure of what coated denim is, it’s a pair of denim pants that almost have a light shimmer overcoat.  I love these pants because they can be dressed up and can add a little bit of shine to your outfit!   

            And lastly, two toned clothing is super stylish and highly fashionable.  These pants are extremely cute because you can make them your own by adding fun shoes and accessories!

            I hope you all are rocking these trends this upcoming fall!

            Hey insiders!  Although I’m mostly a makeup girl, I love, love, love trying out new polishes and designs on my nails.  In my last Buy & Try video, I mentioned a couple nail polishes that I tried out and absolutely adored!  Since school’s almost here, I’m going to suggest a few of the best colors that’ll make you pop this school year.

            One of my new favorite brands of nail color is called “Starrily.”  The coolest thing about these polishes is that they are homemade.  Their colors are also super fun, unique, and great quality.  Most of the polishes look like glittery confetti and are very bright and colorful, which I love!  If you want more of a simple look, they also carry solid polishes that are just as cute.Chelsea Crockett - Starrily Nail Polishes

             A really big trend of the summer has been bold, colorful nails.  I’ve seen many celebrities almost everywhere mixing bright pink and blue polishes with a duller look to add a pop to their outfits.  Although it was a summer trend, I think bringing it into the school year is a perfect way to catch peoples’ attention on your first dayWink!

             And of course, you can’t forget the naturals.  Grays, tans, and whites are a timeless trend when it comes to nails.  Adding a topcoat of shimmer or sparkles will still give you that fun look you want but at the same time, it keeps it simple.  Enjoy!

                                                            Love, Chels
