September 30th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Style Guide: How to Wear our Shaggiest Vest Yet

There’s nothing quite as versatile as a fabulous vest. A vest can add that cool factor to your favorite jeans and T-shirt but can also take your date night look up a notch.

This season’s update to last year’s faux fur vest is a super shaggy vest made up entirely of looped yarn. We love it’s voluminous silhouette – it’s glamorous, soft and most important it’s fun to wear. The shaggiest vest yet!

Work

If you’re headed to work layer our our Grey Looped Vest ($40) over a shirt dress and add OTK boots.

Drinks with Friends

Glam it up in our Ombre Looped Yarn Vest ($42.50). Pair it with a silky graphic top, your darkest denim and black boots.

(Styling Tip: When the weather really cools down I layer my favorite vest over my leather jacket.)

Date Night

 

It won’t take you long to get ready for date night anymore. If you’re headed out to dinner just slip on a mid-length bodycon under our Ombre Vest for an instant date night outfit.

Weekend Wear

Here we’ve put together a look perfect for a weekend brunch, shopping or even a long walk. See? Vests are super versatile!

Look out for the Grey and Ombre Looped Yarn Vests at a Crossroads near you this coming week!

September 29th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Hollywood’s Favorite Jewelry Designers

I’ll admit it for us all: We’re fascinated with celebrity style. On and off the red carpet, we are waiting to see what and who they are wearing. Oftentimes accessories can make or break an outfit, and our favorite Hollywood ladies know just how to make their outfit special with the help of some of their friends: celebrity jewelry designers. One thing we see in common with all the designer pieces below? They are minimalistic; less is more. Don’t get me wrong, statement jewelry and bling have their own time and place (hello, red carpet!), but the minimalistic trend can sometimes make an even bigger statement. If you’ve ever wanted to accessorize like your favorite star, check out some of Hollywood’s most loved and worn jewelry designers below.

September 27th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: Fashion Blogger Closet Tours

I have a strange fascination for seeing how people live; I love open houses, taking tours of friend’s homes, marathoning HGTV, and taking a peak at fashion bloggers’ closet tours. My own closet is a complete disaster. I don’t have enough hangers, space, or organizational skills to create the closet of my dreams, so I live vicariously through some of my favorite bloggers who have managed to create their own tiny fashion utopias. Check out some of the fashion bloggers who have let their readers into their epic closets!

 

Beth Jones, B. Jones Style
Beth is one of my favorite bloggers because of her down to earth, approachable attitude and amazing thrifted finds. She shares some of her favorite vintage and thrifted finds in her closet tour and can we just agree that her closet is #goals? Check out her closet tour here:

In the years since Aimee has posted her closet tour, I am sure it has grown threefold! I love the little oasis she created for herself. Talk about closet envy! Check out her closet tour here:

 

Carli Bybel, @thefashionbybel

September 19th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 8 Transitional Fall Outfits to Copy this Week

Transitional dressing can be a bit tricky; it’s cold in the morning, warms up in the afternoon, and then cools down again in the evening. To help you out during this dressing period, I’ve rounded up eight transitional fall outfits to try out from some of my favorite style bloggers!

 

liz-late-afternoon
Liz (Late Afternoon)
Liz seamlessly transitions into fall with a heavy, denim midi skirt and a thin knit.

transitional fall
Alex (Alex’s Closet)
Alex layers a denim vest over a long sleeve blouse to create the perfect denim-on-denim look for those early days of fall.

dylana-dylana-suarez
Dylana (Dylana Suarez) 
I am in love with how Dylana pairs these two fabrics with just a bit of sheen to them.

mary
Mary (Happily Grey)
Throw on some distressed denim and layer a tee or a tank under a colorblock sweater to get Mary’s perfect fall look.

kaitlyn-modern-legacy
Kaitlyn (Modern Legacy) 
A monochromatic look with a chunky sweater and a side-slit maxi skirt is perfect for temperamental weather.

lucy-fashion-me-now
Lucy (Fashion Me Now)
Lucy shows there’s no easier way to look put together than this classic: a tee, jeans, and a leather jacket!

transitional fall
Coury (Fancy Treehouse)
An oldie but a goodie, Coury’s fall look from a few years ago is another classic. Layering two lightweight knits and adding your favorite ankle booties and a hat for some personality will get you through fall in comfort and style.

sara-harper-and-harley
Sara (Harper & Harley)
Last but not least: if it’s already quite cold where you are, celebrate your higher hems and flats by adding a heavier coat to keep warm. Let your frayed hem jeans peek out from underneath!

What’s your favorite transitional fall piece?
