Vests are a great fall fashion staple. They are great to wear on chilly days when a coat isn’t necessary but you still need a little something to keep you warm. Plus, vests are the ultimate layering piece. There are so many different styles of vests out there this season, so I thought I would round up my top 3 and give you some styling tips with each!

  1. Front-fold vest: This style of vest is pretty new and I am loving it. The inside of the vest folds outward, giving a more layered and dimensional look. This vest is a great casual piece that looks awesome layered with plaid or a solid neutral color.83c6f05b7d84cddc243427512b1e1f56
  2. Faux fur vest: I love these vests because of how versatile they are. You can pair them with a patterned or solid shirt and with pretty much whatever color of pants you want! It can also be dressed up or dressed down depending on the situation.
  3. Quilted: This is the most popular type of vest. These are an awesome addition to your everyday fall wardrobe. They are comfy and cozy and casual. Pair with a simple button up and riding boots for a cute casual outfit, or layer over a sporty hoodie for a sporty look.

What is your favorite vest to wear this fall?

Sooner than later, the leaves will be changing and the temperatures will be dropping.  That being said, some fall wardrobe updating will need to be done!  There are lots of new trends to be aware of this upcoming season.  Different materials, patterns, and looks are going to make their statement in a month or two.  Keep reading to find out how you can be up-to-date!Chelsea Crockett - Long Line Vest

  1. Instead of puffy or fleece vests, try rocking a long-line vest like the one on the right!  They’re much more stylish and can be dressed up or dressed down!
  2. Although army jackets are super cute, try wearing a bomber jacket instead.  They have a much more retro feel to them and come in many different colors and patterns!  This is one of my favorite trends going into fall 2016.
  3. I have tons of dresses that I love to wear especially in autumn, but one trend that I’ve been seeing everywhere is suede dresses.  I love the material and the look it gives off!
  4. Instead of layered or chunky necklaces, don’t be afraid to be simple with chokers!  There are so many different kinds.  You can get a tan suede double stranded choker or a thick black stranded one, whatever you want!

Which fall trend will you be rocking this season?  Let me know below! 🙂

I have gobs and gobs of scarves. I just love a cute scarf! When I see one I like I cannot resist snatching it up. I have to get creative when I wear them so that I can make sure they each get a turn. One way? I wear them as a vest! This may sound weird, but trust me, it is cute. Vests are a great way to accessorize and spruce up a boring outfit. Here is how to turn your favorite scarf into a trendy vest in seconds.

  1. Grab your favorite large scarf.vest
  2. Open it up so it is one giant square, and then fold it in half.
  3. Tie 3 corners into a knot. This creates arm holes!
  4. You’re done! You just made a cute vest out

Winter is quickly approaching and sometimes, it can be hard to dress cute with layers upon layers of clothing.  I live in the middle of the Midwest, so we get hit hard with snow storms every year.  Throughout the years, I’ve come across some amazing, warm pieces that everyone needs in their wardrobe.  Who says you can’t dress warm and look cute at the same time?!  Chelsea Crockett- cable knit beanie

  • Sorel boots are amazing! They come in all different styles and can keep your feet warm in negative degrees!   Pair them with tall wool socks and a long sweater.
  • Puffy coats are the definition of warmth. Many designers such as Michael Kors and BCBG have made the puffy coat chic by adding thick gold zippers, buttons, and different lengths.  I LOVE knee length puffy coats!
  • Beanies are fab! They can take any outfit to the next level of street style or grunge.  Try a thick cable knit beanie!
  • Vests are everything! It’s the perfect item to throw on during a chilly day.  If you’re looking for a classy look, add a flannel and some riding boots to the mix. 
  • Ponchos are back in! They are absolutely amazing with a long sleeve under and some leather leggings. 

Have a fabulous winter, Insiders!

Fall Faux Fur Vest Fashion

Okay so faux fur vests are everywhere right now. And I have to say, I am digging it. I might, just MIGHT have bought one from the Target kid’s section the other day. Hey, it was cheaper than the adult one! No shame. Here is how to dress this trend for every occasion.

  1. Casual: Layer a plaid button-down shirt with your fur vest for a great everyday outfit! Pair with some suede booties and aviator sunglasses and you are all set.

  2. Semi-casual: I love long-sleeve t-shirt or tunic dresses. Paired with a fur vest? DROOL! Add in a floppy hat and chunky heel booties for a super trendy ensemble. Wear this shopping, out to lunch with friends, or to a fall party!
  3. Dressed up: If you are looking for an effortlessly chic outfit, look no further than black jeans or leather leggings, a black blouse or tunic, and a faux fur vest. Add in some black suede booties, a black leather tote, and some trendy shades to complete this night-out worthy look.

I know what you’re thinking. Where can I find an adorable faux fur vest?! I have found cute ones at TJ Maxx and Target, but they are pretty much everywhere!

Happy hunting!

When I think of fall I imagine big sweaters, pumpkin lattes, bonfires, and of course, football games!  Dressing for a football game can be tough with the fall weather.  It can be hot while the sun is out, but get cooler as the night goes on.  Keep on reading as I break down my favorite outfit for football season!Chelsea Crockett- quilted vest

It’s important not to dress too light or too heavy.  Instead, try wearing layers that can be taken on or off depending on the weather.  During September and October, I prefer to wear skinny jeans and my school spirit tee!  If you’re wearing a long sleeve tee, try pairing it with a quilted vest to add a little extra style to your outfit.  If you’re wearing a tank or short sleeve shirt, bring along an oversized sweater or flannel to throw on over your shirt.  Investing in a black and white flannel will help take your fashion game to a new level.  Adding a flannel to a spirit shirt adds depth to your outfit, plus the black and white matches everything!

Once your outfit is complete, pick out a pair of sandals or boots (depending on the weather), add some accessories, you can even wear a chunky necklace to dress up your look, and head to the game!  No matter what age you are, football season is always a wonderful time of the year!

XOXO,

Chelsea

What’s better than walking around you house in a big t-shirt and no pants?  Nothing!  Can I get an “amen” girls?!  The second best thing is a t-shirt dress, AKA a long, comfy tee that is actually stylish!  Even better?  It’s totally acceptable to wear almost anywhere!  Check out how to style a t-shirt dress for any occasion!Chelsea Crockett- t-shirt dress

The simplest way to rock a t-shirt dress is to throw it on with sandals and some jewelry for warmer months.  I love adding a scarf and hat to bring more to the outfit.  This is perfect for a lunch date or shopping.  It’s even comfy enough to wear around the house, not to mention it’s super cute too!  Once it starts getting cooler, a long-sleeved t-shirt dress is the way to go!  Try it with a pair of boots and a quilted vest.  You can always dress it up with flats or wedges and a cardigan.

Accessories are the key to dressing your t-shirt dress up or down.  The more accessories you add, jewelry, purse, type of shoes, hats/headbands, the dressier your outfit will become!  Experiment with different colors, patterns, and accessories.  The possibilities are endless with styling your dress!  Comment below if you own a t-shirt dress and what’s your favorite way to end it.

Love,

Chelsea

Hi Insiders,

            With school already here, fall is quickly approaching!  Trends are rapidly changing from season to season, and an awesome item for your closet this fall is a vest.  This versatile item can be dressed up and down, and not only make you look like a fashionista, but keep you warm as well.  Check out these chic outfit ideas for adding a vest to your wardrobe. 

           Chelsea Crockett- North Face Vest A vest can be considered sporty or sleek depending on what type of vest you buy.  Different styles of vests include puffy vests, fleece vests, and fashion vests.  Puffy and fleece vests are usually considered sporty and look great paired with leggings, a sweater, and boots!  This is a great look for a casual football game or a Friday night bonfire.  Another sporty way to rock a fleece or puffy vest is to wear it over a pullover.  It’s a very athletic look that is great for outdoor activities like hiking and biking.  A great place to purchase a fleece or puffy vest is an athletic store or outdoor store like The North Face or the Alpine Shop.  Both of these looks are casual enough for school and sporty enough for energetic outdoor fun!

            A fashion vest is usually a super sleek vest with fancy zippers, pockets, and details.  A great place to find a fashion vest is J. Crew.  If you have an outlet mall near you, you may have a J. Crew Factory where these vests can be purchased for much cheaper!  These vests look great with a plaid button up, jeans, and boots!  These vests can also be paired with jewelry, so don’t be afraid to add a fun necklace or a statement watch.  It’s a dressier way to wear a vest!  Adding a fun printed sweater and thick infinity scarf can give your fashion vest a Chelsea Crockett- fashion vestwhole new look!  I encourage you to add a vest to your fall wardrobe.  Let me know below how you rock your vest!  Have fun with it!

XOXO,
