There is something so romantic about a winter wedding. Don’t get me wrong, all weddings are romantic, but winter weddings just seem to have a different feel to them. They seem sophistocated and classy. If you have a winter wedding to attend, you want to dress the part of a stylish guest! Here are a few outfit ideas for your next winter wedding.IMG_2559

  1. Sequined pencil skirt: One of the writers of ChelseaCrockett.com attended a wedding this December and wore a sequined pencil skirt. She paired it with a simple white blouse and pointed black felt pumps. It was simple and stylish! The sequins dressed up the outfit while the subtle shirt and shoes made sure to balance it all out.
  2. Tulle midi skirt: I love a good tulle skirt. They are so fun and feminine! For a simple, subtle fashion statement, wear a tulle skirt with a netural colored sweater and heels. Simple and subtle is what every wedding guest should be! All eyes should be on the bride.
  3. A jumpsuit: I love a classy jumpsuit! These are so stylish and trendy, and also really comfortable! Pair a jumpsuit with a blazer and heels for a great winter wedding outfit.

What would YOU wear to a winter wedding?

XOXO, Chels

I love experimenting with different fashion statements and styles. I love styles with a southern flare, so naturally I am a fan of scalloped fashion. It has a sweet and feminine accent that can add a girly touch to even the simplest ensembles.

  1. Collared shirt: Button-up shirts with a scalloped collar are so sweet and versatile. You can wear them tucked in to a pair of jeans or a skirt, or you can even layer them under a cute sweater for a more dimensional look.
  2. Pea coat: The best way to showcase this trend is in outerwear! Layer a sweet scalloped pea coat over a simple ensemble for a cute winter outfit.
  3. Booties: I love scalloped booties because they are a really subtle way to rock the trend. They are sweet and feminine and add a cute touch to the simplest of outfits.

What is your favorite scalloped accessory?

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.f7fd316d4e48530f850c88dee34e8dba

  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 and neck of the turtleneck, adding dimension to the outfit.
  2. Sweet and simple: A simple cable-knit sweater turtleneck is a very effortlessly classy look. Pair a simple sweater turtleneck with darker jeans and riding boots for a classic, timeless look.
  3. Fun and flirty: Get creative! Wear a turtleneck with a leather skirt and boots. Wear it layered with a plaid button-up shirt for a cute combo. Wear it with a faux fur vest to bring out your chic side. Turtlenecks are great winter pieces that can be layered and worn in so many ways, the sky is the limit.

What are your thoughts on turtlenecks? Do you think they are cute, or do you think they are a thing of the past? I’m a definite fan.

Ponchos used to be a fashion statement of the past, but recently they have made their way back into style. There are so many different variations of them, from plaid to plain to patterned! Here are my top 3 favorite ways to play up ponchos this season.

  1. Pretty in plaid: I love this preppy take on ponchos. The pattern is classy and timeless. Wear a flowey white long-sleeve blouse under your poncho, and add in some dark jeans and boots to finish off the look.
  2. Fun fringe: This might be my favorite way to wear ponchos. The fringe is so fun and flirty! Pair with simple black jeans, suede booties, and a neutral tee.images
  3. Cute and casual: Wear a simple poncho with casual jeans and boots for an effortlessly cute ensemble.

What is your favorite poncho pair?

Blanket scarves are one of the best things about winter fashion. They come in so many colors and patterns and can be worn a million different ways! Blanket scarves aren’t just meant to be scarves! Here are a few of my favorite ways to style them.

  1. With a belt: if you want to create a vest out of your scarf, put the middle of the scarf around your neck and let the long parts hang in front. Secure the scarf around your waist with a belt to keep it in place.blanket
  2. As a shawl: Wear the scarf around your shoulders as a shawl or like a poncho! It is a warm and easy way to wear a blanket scarf.
  3. The classic way: Around your neck! Sometimes I avoid wearing my blanket scarves this way because it can sometimes feel like they are suffocating me. But other times when I am freezing (the Midwest is COLD!) the chunkiness of blanket scarves is warm and welcome.
  4. Like a bandana: Tie the corners of the scarf around the back of your neck so the scarf looks sort of like a bandana. This is a really trendy, cool way to wear your scarf.

Can you think of other creative ways to wear blanket scarves?

How to Style Over the Knee Boots

On Pinterest I always see pictures of women wearing chic over-the-knee boots and I drool a little. The boots are so trendy and look effortlessly stylish. They so slimming, too! Well, as we have heard time and time again, some things look better in pictures than they do in real life. Over-the-knee boots are one of those things. As it turns out, styling and being able to pull off over-the-knee boots is actually a bit of a challenge because they look different on everyone! Here are a few tips on how to wear them for every body type.cb666451ac39f3e7bfadeb1f593ee34e

 For tall girlies: You ladies have it the best when it comes to over-the-knee boots. Your long legs are beneficial because the boots accentuate them and make them look even longer! Pair them with a simple sweater dress for a great balance between your boots and your hemline.

For curvy ladies: If you have curves you can totally rock these bad boys! It is all about how you wear them. Go for a pair that hits right above the knee and creates a lean, long leg line with some dark denim jeans. As for your top, wear a long sweater or blouse to finish the ensemble off.

For petite gals: When it comes to my petite pals, I suggest pairing over-the-knee boots with fitted pieces that show your shape. It is important not to overwhelm your small frame! Don’t wear tops or dresses with long hemlines that make your legs look short, go for tops/dresses/skirts that leave plenty of space between your hemline and boots.

These stylish boots can work for any body type! You just have to know how to style them in a way that works with YOU. 😉

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

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?

You know the phrase “you can’t wear white after Labor Day”? Throw that rule out the window. It is always a good day to wear white! There are so many great ways to style white that don’t require the weather to be spring or summer. From sweaters to jeans to handbags and dresses, you name it, you can wear it in white. As long as you incorporate other elements that match the outside temps, like a scarf or layers, then you are good to go. Here are 4 ways to rock winter whites.

  1. Bell-sleeve dress: I love the bohemian/retro look of bell-sleeve dresses. Because they are long-sleeved, you can wear them in the chilly weather when paired with some booties. You could even pull on a pair of nylon tights and a vest if you want to add some extra warmth to the ensemble. autumn-hippie-bell-sleeve-dress-free-femininos-people-white-embroidery-vintage-long-maxi-dresses-women-boho
  2. White handbag: White handbags look so fresh and clean. They add a clean pop of style to any ensemble, and they go with everything!i_216655328_01_20150226
  3. Distressed white jeans: The great thing about white jeans is that you can them year-round. I also love all of the outfit possibilities they bring! Plus, when you add in the distressed look, you add a little extra dimensions You can wear them with an army jacket and black booties for an edgy look, or if you want to keep it simple, pair them with a loose neutral-colored oversized sweater and brown leather booties.winter_white3
  4. White sweater: White sweaters come in all shapes and sizes. You can layer them or wear them by themselves. I love a crisp white cardigan because they are totally versatile, and I love an oversized white sweater that goes with almost any color of pants.eb80c430f7c013fe29312c0b5702fc90

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?

Flannels are a pretty diverse piece of clothing. They can be worn in so many ways, from wrapped around your waist to layered over a dress to simply buttoned up! Besides being oh-so-warm and cozy, they are also pretty darn cute. Here are 4 ways to fashion your flannels this season.

  1. If you live somewhere where the weather is not too chilly during the winter months but can get a little brisk at times, you can layer a unbuttoned flannel on top of a floaty dress and pair that with boots and sunglasses. If you live where it is chilly, add some tights under the dress to make this outfit work for you!130f87ce746fbc7b509533fa9aa75955
  2. An all-black outfit is necessary every once in a while. Want to feel chick and edgy? Pair some black skinnies with a simple v-neck tee and a black and white unbuttoned flannel. Toss on some boots and a statement necklace and you are ready to rock.
  3. If you have a preppy side, which I think we all do deep down, layer a checked flannel under a cute sweater. Let the collar and the cuffs of the sleeve pop out of the sweater to show the pattern. Add in a statement watch, some bangles, and riding boots to finish off this look.
  4. Add a feminine flare to your flannel by tucking it into high-waisted jeans. Wear some classic nude or brown booties with this to create a sort of retro, classic, almost western look!

How will YOU wear your flannels this fall?

XOXO,

In my book, a layered outfit is the best kind. It mixes different styles, colors, and textures to form an outfit that is perfectly put-together. A well layered outfit not only keeps you warm, it also adds dimension and personality to your look. Here are 3 outfits that show you how to get the most out of cold-weather coat layering.layering

  1. Leather layering: This outfit combines a plaid flannel with a slouchy cardigan and a leather jacket. Layering the chunky cardigan under the leather jacket not only keeps you warm, but also adds a layer of texture to the look of the outfit!
  2. More leather layering: Okay, so you have probably noticed I like leather jackets. Sue me! This time we are layering the leather jacket UNDER something. Pair a simple tee, such as a striped tee, under a leather jacket, then layer that under a colored coat. The coat doesn’t have to be colored, but if you want to spice things up choose a color that is still versatile but is also a statement!
  3. Moving to denim: This time we ditch the leather jacket for denim. Layer a simple tee under an unbuttoned denim shirt. Then add a simple coat over that for a subtle, understated look that is still trendy!

Get creative with coat layering. Have fun with it! Not only will it keep you looking cute, it will keep you cozy too!

How much do you wear belts? My guess is only when your pants need assistance staying on your tush. Your winter wardrobe this year is dependent on them! Belts, that is. You can build your outfit around them and use them to accessorize! You can also use them to shape your clothes to your body. Bold belts can transform a simple ensemble into a stylish outfit. Here are 3 ways to use belts in your wardrobe this winter!belt 3

  1. Blanket Scarf: Do you ever wonder what the best way to wear your blanket scarf is? They are so thick that sometimes it is difficult to style them. Belts transform your blanket scarf into a cute vest! Layer your scarf over a simple tee, drape it over your shoulders, and tie a belt around the middle. This gives you some curves and adds layers to your look.
  2. Cape: Wear a classy cape with a belt around the middle! It breaks up the simplicity of the cape and, like the option above, it gives you some shape.
  3. Printed: This last option is the simplest of all. Wear a patterned belt, like leopard print, with a simple shirt and jeans for a simple but sassy outfit. If you want to wear a simple neutral sweater with jeans, wearing a printed belt takes your outfit to the next level.

Belt it up!

XOXO, Chels
