August 25th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Shop our Fashion Bucket List!

Ditch the traditional bucket list for a fashion bucket list—because 1) it’s not as morbid, and 2) you get to shop to complete it!

We’re busy collecting all this season’s must-have trends from some of our favorite brands, and we’re certain you’ll be adding a few of these classics to your very own fall fashion bucket list!

Denim Jacket + Graphic Tee

Spruce up your denim with our Frayed Denim Shirt Jacket ($48.50). Then add our Graphic Ringer Tee ($14) and finish the look with black drainpipe denim and leather riding boots.

A Great Backpack

If you haven’t ditched your heavy tote bag for a backpack yet, trust me: this is a bucket list must. Snag our Ocean Waves Canvas Backpack ($25) and get ready to be a backpack convert.

Joggers + Ankle Boots

I’ve essentially left behind real pants for fashionable joggers this year. Start your own collection with our Overdyed Drawstring Jogger ($18.50), and pair it with our Cropped Lace-Up Sweater ($25) and Stacked Leather Hex Boot ($58.50).

Sweater Vest + Flannel Shirt

If you love to layer, then try our Split Side Sweater Vest ($20). Pair it with skinny dark denim, ballet flats, and our Latico Crossbody ($38.50). Then, layer it over our Oversized Navy Flannel ($30).

Stay tuned to the Crossroads Instagram feed for a first look at our newest arrivals so you can continue building your very own fashion bucket list for fall!

August 19th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Top Trends to Shop at Crossroads This Fall

Our buying team just returned from shopping the shows of WWD MAGIC in Las Vegas, and we’re dropping everything to show you what we bought!

Our buying revolved around two color groups: olive, navy and camel for the daytime, and blush, burgundy and tinsel pieces for the nighttime. This September at Crossroads, you can look forward to bomber jackets featuring sateen finishes, embroidery and zips, as well as chunky knits, military inspired outerwear and plaid button-downs. Some of our favorite silhouettes, cuts and fabrics from spring will be showing up again this season, like off-the-shoulder blouses, lace tanks, moto jackets, microsuede and frayed hemlines.

Take a look at some of the styles and décor that inspired our buying for this coming season!
