Athleisure Style This Fall and Winter

Athleisure is an up-and-coming trend that I am loving, I have to admit. Athleisure is casual clothing like yoga pants, sweat pants, and pullovers that are designed to be worn for both exercising and pretty much everything else. So, they are athletic clothes that are stylish and functional, meaning you can wear them to the gym and then to the grocery store and look stylin’ while doing both. This trend is both comfy and trendy, so I am ready to hop on board. Here are 3 athleisure looks to try this fall and winter.

  1. Super casual: In this style we see workout leggings paired with a loose tank top layered under a simple pullover. The outfit is finished off with some slip-on sneakers. I like this look because it is effortless and really casual, but it is also comfy and can be worn out and about.0c6ead14e21331bfc652272ade7c4ab4
  2. Cute and comfy: This next look pairs workout leggings with some Hunter boots, and white long-sleeve tee layered under a cute thermal pullover and puffy vest. This style is really preppy and cute while also being comfy and practical.5939f30b8b4c520aa203b4e31589e4a5
  3. Trendy and effortless: This next look is the most complex, but is also my personal favorite. This look pairs some workout leggings with awesome textured patches on the knees, a white long-sleeve tee, and a green army jacket with an infinity scarf to top it off. The tennis shoes keep the outfit athletic while the army jacket takes it to a more “street-worthy” state.3eedbd2995cf26b1f16332744e2b1fc2

I love outfits that I can wear straight from the gym to run errands, or just to be comfy while I’m out and about! Athletic clothes can be dressed up in so many ways to make them more “outfit” ready. Who says comfy can’t also be cute?

XOXO, Chels

Outfits For When You Feel Like You Have Nothing to Wear

One of the best things about shopping is finding an item that makes you feel so confident and that you totally love. The bad thing about it is that after a little while, that same item of clothing can become “meh” to you. It doesn’t matter how much you loved the item when you bought it, it is inevitable that over time it will lose its appeal. We all know the feeling of looking into our closet and thinking “I have NOTHING to wear…!”, and it isn’t that we literally have nothing to wear, it is that we got bored with our options. When that feeling hits, it is good to have a few go-to outfits to turn to when everything else feels “blah.” Here are a few no-fail looks for when this happens!

  1. White on white: I love to play with color in my outfits, but sometimes going bold isn’t what you are feeling. Opt for an all-white outfit if you are feeling like you are out of options. It is a nice alternative to all-black, and you are totally okay to toss the “no white after labor day” rule out the door. Some good white combos are white skinny jeans with an over-sized white or cream sweater, or the always-trendy skinny jeans and a white tee.8233211788949221_awdrklyr_f
  2. Rolled jeans and booties: This is a great fall outfit. Cuff the hem of your favorite jeans paired with low-heal booties and wear an oxford shirt, sweater, or create a layered look with a vest or cardigan. This is an effortlessly casual and easy look to toss together.
  3. Skinny jeans and a textured shirt: This look is all about contrast. Jeans may feel too casual for certain settings, but if you pair them with a dressier shirt or blouse with texture like ruffles or fringe then your jeans will automatically look more dressed-up. You could even pair a silk blouse with a nice pair of jeans and booties for a dressier ensemble. Jeans can easily be dressed up or down.

Another quick fix for the “I have nothing to wear” blues is to look up outfit inspiration on Pinterest and focus on photos of people wearing items that you have in your closet. This will help give you ideas on new ways to wear and pair the clothes you already have!

The “tassel” trend is one of my faves right now. My favorite store in my hometown, “MOD”, has some great tassel pieces that I have my eye on. I know this fashion trend will be in full swing this fall, so I want to make sure you know all the details! Here are my favorite ways to rock the trend.tassel

  1. With necklaces: I love the tassel necklace trend. You can spruce up any simple ensemble with a spunky tassel necklace. I love the pops of color and accents they add!
  2. On handbags: This is such a fun way to make your outfit pop! Keep your outfit simple, wear whites or other neutrals, and add in a handbag featuring tassels. I love the fun playfulness of them!
  3. On apparel: Show your fun, fashionista side by wearing pieces that feature tassels! I love this shirt that has tassels on the bottom. Wear it with a pair of jeans and cute flats and you are ready for a fun day out on the town, or it can even be a simple date night outfit!

Will you be rocking the tassel trend this fall?

This summer I want to go a little bit out of my box when it comes to style. I want to explore my personal style and then branch out and try new things and see if I like them. My first new style try is shorts overalls. Here are 3 things I love about this trend.overalls2

  1. Its easy: Literally all you need for this outfit is the overalls and a shirt and shoes to go with it. It is an easy running errands outfit or going to a casual summer breakfast with friends or heading to the zoo for the day.
  2. Its adorable: I think this style is stinkin adorable. It gives you a girlish flare and pulls on your inner kid.
  3. Its versitile: You can wear these with a short sleeved shirt, a crop top, a slouchy sweater, you can layer a shirt under and a sweater over, you can wear them with a tank top, over a swim suit, so many options!!

If you are looking to go out of the box this summer, try on a pair of shorts overals for size.

To the people who say that turtlenecks are totally not cute, I say think again! They keep you cozy warm in the chilly temps all while rocking a stylish fashion staple. Layer them under coats, over skirts, tucked into jeans, any way you want! Here are my 3 favorite ways to wear them this winter.

  1. Edgy and chic: If you want to try an edgy or trendy look, pair a gray turtleneck sweater with a leather jacket, some black skinnies, and black booties. The shorter length of the leather jacket will nicely contrast with the longer hem of the turtleneck, adding dimension to the outfit.FullSizeRender (32)
  2. Sweet and simple: A simple turtleneck is a very effortlessly classy look. Pair a simple, colored turtleneck with casual skinnies and flats for a sweet everyday outfit.
  3. Fun and flirty: I love this turtleneck sweater/leather skirt/plaid shirt combo. Add in tights and boots for a fun, feminine outfit for a night with the girls!

What are your thoughts on turtlenecks? Do you think they are cute, or do you think they are a thing of the past?

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?

To me, sequins are a vital accessory when it comes to winter fashion. They can take any outfit from simple to stunning. Here are my top 3 favorite ways to style sequins.

  1. Skirts: I bought 2 sequined pencil skirts at H&M last season and im so glad I did. I style them with tights and a simple blouse to balance out the pazazz of the skirt. They are a great Christmas/New Years party outfit option!sequin
  2. Clutches: If you want to wear sequins in the most subtle way possible, grab a sequined clutch. Target has so many cute ones this season! They are a great way to add feminine flare to your outfit, plus they are a great statement piece.
  3. Blazers: This is the easiest way to style sequins. By tossing on a sequined blazer you can add sass to any ensemble. Wear it with jeans and a simple tee for a contrasting look, or pair it with dress pants or a skirt for a cute date night outfit.

How will you style sequins this winter?

How much black do you have in your closet? I’d say every fashion-seeking girl has a fair amount of black in her wardrobe. It is just a classy, versatile color that can be styled in so many ways. But, as far as dark neutral colors go, gray is the closest thing to black, and is also a perfect accent or substitute for it. If you are wary to wear black, or are just tired of wearing it, gray is a great alternative. Gray compliments just about anything, from neon shades to neutrals. Here are 3 ways to go gray this fall and winter.grey

  1. Cute and girly: If you like to show your girly side, try pairing some black tights with a dark gray wool skater skirt and a light gray sweater. The different shades give the outfit some dimension, plus the combo is just too cute!
  2. Comfy and casual: This outfit is a great casual option. Layer a chunky, oversized gray sweater with a lighter gray knitted infinity scarf. The contrasting knit patterns will draw people’s eyes.
  3. Contrasting: Pair some gray skinnies with a white shirt for a sharp contrasting look that is simple yet eye-catching.

Do you have more suggestions on how to make gray your wardrobe’s new black?

Spring and summer are totally wedding season, and they are knocking at our door! Believe it or not, some of us will be on Spring Break at this time next month! Crazy, right? Anyway, like I was saying, wedding season is almost here, which means you need some wedding wear rules to follow. Here they are:

  1. Never wear white to a wedding…EVER: Don’t even wear ivory or champagne, it is too close for comfort to white! Save What-to-wear-fall-wedding-2013your white dresses for other spring and summer gatherings and let the bride stand out in her dazzling white dress.
  2. Keep it classy: Showing too much skin is a major no-no. No matter how great your legs are looking, you want to keep the attention on the bride, not your toned tush. That being said, you can wear something that flatters your figure! Just don’t go overboard.
  3. Better to overdress than underdress: Flip flops= not okay! You will have plenty of opportunities to wear your favorite plastic Old Navy flip flops and comfy cutoffs this spring and summer, so keep them away from weddings! Also, jeans and tank tops are a definite “no.”
  4. Be confident: Although it is not “your day,” that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the heck out of it!

I just love weddings, don’t you?

XOXO, Chels

What to Wear to Your Boyfriend’s Thanksgiving…

Do you have a boy toy? Whether you have been dating for 3 months or 3 years, going to his family get-togethers can be nerve wracking, am I right? You want to impress them and make them like you. Well my friends, today I am here to help you pick out the perfect “impress his parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins” outfit!boots

Some important things to consider are comfort, modesty, and the setting. When you are comfortable and confident in what you are wearing, it shows! This also goes with the modesty factor. You want to dress modestly to show what a mature, respectable, classy young lady their beloved son/grandson/nephew/cousin is dating! When I say the setting I mean this: is his family a more casual group or do they dress things up at get-togethers? You might want to ask him (or probably his mom) what kind of attire is the norm at their family holiday get-togethers.

Here are some outfit suggestions:

Casual: If they are more of a “jeans and t-shirt” kind of family, then wear a casual pair of dark skinnies, a cute sweater and scarf! Totally adorable, nice and cozy and casual!

Middle: If they are sort of an in-between casual and dressy kind of family, then I would go with black skinnies and a nice blouse and flats, or black skinnies and a sweater poncho and booties, or my personal favorite, black skinnies, tan booties, a nice cream colored blouse, and a faux fur vest!

Dressy: If they are a classy, dressy family then I would wear tights and a dress or skirt, a nice sweater or blazer over it, statement jewelry, and neutral makeup. The neutral makeup tip goes for all of the outfits, don’t go crazy with the eye shadow or lip color. Subtle is best when around your BF’s fam!

I hope these tips help ease a little bit of the “meeting the fam” nervousness! Don’t you worry, they are going to LOVE you.

XOXO, Chels

I love lace! It is such a “must wear” in the summer time. There are so many ways to work lace into your summer wardrobe. Here are three of my favorite ways to rock lace this summer!

  1. The sundress: Lace sundresses are my fav. If you are heading to any weddings, grad parties, or just a party in general this summer, your go-to outfit should start with a lace dress! If you want to add a country flare to your look, pair your dress with a pair of cowboy boots. If you are going for a more preppy look, pair your dress with nude heels, and a jean jacket if it is chilly.
  2. The top: Lace tops are so boho/indie and I just adore them. If paired with high waisted shorts and beachy wave hair, you will rock this look for sure! You can also pair your lacy top with a pair of ripped up, distressed jeans for an effortlessly chic look.ba111ce7c5aea8fd8a111966826a30c3
  3. The shorts: Lace shorts are so adorable. They have such a cute, innocent flare to them. Pair them with a sheer top and you are good to go!

Now go rock that lace, ladies!

Everyone loves a good winter party, right? Today I am going to help you pick out the most fab outfit possible to wear to one. Hopefully this will help you avoid the crisis situation that starts with the words “I have nothing to wear!”

Let’s start with the bottom and work our way up. A cute bottom to wear to any holiday party is black skinny jeans. They are not too uncomfortable and can dress up any outfit. They give you a “put together” look and are a bit classier than regular denim jeans. You can also pair a cute skirt with tights or leggings! What I like to do is pair black tights with a sequined or bright colored skirt. For a holiday party, I would choose a red or a bold colored skirt and black tights.sequin skirt- Chelsea Crockett

And finally on to shoes! With the skirt I would wear cute booties or flats. You can also wear a pair of sparkly flats with your black skinnies to spice things up a bit! Another shoe option to try with the black pants is black boots.

Now to the top! For any outfit during the fall and winter I love layering. You can layer a sequined tank under a black blazer, a sheer blouse under a leather studded jacket, or a classic sweater with a printed scarf. You could even pair a sparkly blazer with a neutral colored shirt.  So many options!sequin jacket- Chelsesa Crockett

But yet another option is to wear a dress! You can wear a retro dress with a full skirt or a glittery cocktail dress! Under the cocktail dress you can pair black tights and short boots with a leather jacket to keep you cozy! Who can forget the “little black dress”? These dresses come in all shapes, sizes and lengths. They are always a safe choice to any holiday party. Black dresses are the universal party dress!

I hope that this has helped you get past the “I have nothing to wear!” crisis. Go out there and show everyone at the party how fashionable you are. Choose one of these outfits, and I guarantee you will have heads turning.

XOXO, Chels

According to Glamour magazine, full skirts are coming back, and I cannot help but agree! Full skirts are a classic fashion statement.

Wearing a full skirt makes you look like you have an itty bitty waist! How? The skirt is fitted closely around the waist and then flairs out as it comes to your knees. Full skirts are almost universally flattering because they define the waist, and make it seem small by comparison. They also give you a classic, vintage look. Full skirts never really went out of style, they were just pushed to the side to make room for newer styles such as the pencil

 skirt. Full skirts give you a feminine, romantic feel. They are also super fun to wear because they swish and sway when you walk! When I am wearing a full skirt I like to spin around and feel the skirt fly around me. When wearing a full skirt, if it was made with a 

plain fabric, pair it with a patterned blouse! Add some chunky statement jewelry and some retro sunglasses and you will rock the look!

Looking for a vintage, classic, flattering look? Try on a full skirt, you will fall in love just like I did!
