Fall Athileisure Style

Athleisure is a trend that I am loving. Athleisure is casual clothing like yoga pants, sweat pants, and pullovers that are designed to be worn for both exercising and style. So, they are athletic clothes that are both trendy 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 cute, so I am ready to hop on board. This sounds like great “college wear.” 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.
  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. It is great for days that start out cold but warm up as the day goes on because you can shed layers.
  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.

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

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.

XOXO, Chels

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.

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?

Usually when I think of cold weather fashion I think of shades like white, grey, brown and black and muted, darker tones. After the fall colors fade away and the winter the skies are gray, and if you don’t like the cold, your mood is gray as well! One way to drown out the late fall/winter blues is to add color to youimagesr wardrobe. Here are a few ways to add colors back into your ensembles.

  1. Coats: Who says coats have to be neutral colors all of the time? Not me! I love to wear a statement coat, such as my red pea coat, to work some color back into my outfits!
  2. Scarves: Scarves are a great way to spice up your outfit. Wear a statement scarf with a solid shirt to add some dimension.
  3. Hats: I love wearing hats in the fall and winter, and if you follow me on Instagram you totally know what I am talking about! They are a great way to stay warm and look cute at the same time.
  4. Handbags: By adding in a colored handbag to your outfit you can effortlessly slide in some color.
  5. Sweaters: Colored sweaters… a total yes! I have a coral colored sweater that I just love, and I wear it with dark jeans and riding boots for an easy, comfy chilly weather outfit!

How are YOU adding color into your cold-weather wardrobe?

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?

Winter time means parties and get-togethers galore! You want to make a statement with your style choices, and nail art is one way to do just that! Now you could choose to keep it simple and just paint your nails red for the holidays, but if you want to live on the wild side, try one of these chic winter nail styles!

  1. Angled: This style is simple and unique. Just take a piece of tape and cover half of your nail with it. Paint the other half white, let it dry a bit, and then peel the tape off. Paint clear top coat over each nail to seal the color in, and you’re done!nails 2
  2. Chevron stripes: This style is a new take on chevron. It sort of reminds me of a snow flake! Paint your nails with a clear base coat, then use nail tape to make the chevron pattern. Paint over your whole nail with white polish, and pull off the tape while the polish is still wet. Once it is dry, apply a top coat.
  3. Subtle sparkle: This style might be my favorite of the 3. It is so subtle and classy. Tape off a triangle at the base of your nail and paint it with glitter polish. You may need a few coats for it to show up. Peel off the tape and coat with clear top coat. Done! It is that simple.

Statement nails are a great way to finish off any ensemble!

XOXO, Chels

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

Hip hip hooray for ankle boot season! Ankle boots are a breed of boots that look best with a specific style of jeans: skinny jeans. Knee boots can be paired with a plethora of jean styles, but skinny jeans work best with our beloved ankle booties. Here are my tips on how to wear/style ankle booties this season.

  1. Flat and fabulous: Most of the ankle booties I own have a bit of a heal to them, but I am really digging the flat bottomed bootie this season! It is subtle and simple. Pair flat ankle booties with skinnies, a patterned button up shirt, and a leather jacket for a stylish, easy ensemble.skinnies
  2. Roll it, don’t scrunch it: Rather than shoving the hem of jeans that are too long into your boots, roll the cuffs! This is a cute alternative to letting them bunch or awkwardly pop out of the tops of your boots. If your favorite jeans have a bit of a flare to them at the bottom, just roll ‘em up!
  3. Be aware of your hemline: This goes for all booties. As a rule of thumb, make sure the hem of your jeans hit about an inch above your ankle. This ensures your jeans are at the perfect length to show of those cute booties!

What are your favorite ways to style ankle booties this season?
