Graphic tees have become a staple in the wardrobes of stylish men and women everywhere. From Parisian fashion houses like Yves Saint Laurent to edgy street labels like UNIF, we saw cheeky, logo-adorned tees featured front and center in collections in the past year.

This week at Crossroads, we’re featuring five tees with cool graphics priced at just $17.50.

Catronaut Tee ($17.50)

Flaws Tee ($17.50)—we all have them!

August 21st, 2015 by Samantha Weaver WWD MAGIC: A Buyer’s Tour

WWD Magic

WWD MAGIC is a globally-attended trade show that takes place every August, just off the Strip in the heart of Las Vegas. Shows like MAGIC, POOL, PROJECT and PLATFORM (just to name a few) bring the fashion world together to view upcoming fall and winter collections.

With the temperature hitting 110 degrees outside, we walked and shopped these shows to fill our stores with the top trends for 2015. Check out these 70’s-inspired pieces and cold-weather looks that you can look forward to seeing at a Crossroads location near you this fall!

August 14th, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Dressing for the End of Summer

Do you ever feel like it’s just too hot to dress fashionably in the sweltering heat of mid-August? I sure do…and believe me, the struggle is real.

We’ve got just the fix to your fashion dilemma: great dresses at even better prices that are perfect for the end of summer and early fall.

Our Tile Print Shirtdress ($32.50) is the perfect piece for the transition from summer to fall.

The Bazaar Dress ($32.50) —Pair it with knee-high socks and a vintage leather purse.

The Tie Dye Dress ($28.50) is perfect for an end of summer picnic or night out.

We love the ruffled hem and colorful design of our Square Dance Dress ($32.50).

Prairie Button Down ($30)—Try it with flared denim!

August 6, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Fall Fashion Necessities

Crossroads is officially buying for fall! To celebrate my absolute favorite season for fashion (think cozy sweaters, wool hats and a darker color palette), I’ve made a list of the top 6 fall fashion necessities you won’t want to live without in 2015.

1. Ankle Boots. Every gal needs a pair of these, if not two or three. These Double Buckle Leather Booties are $52.50 and coming soon.

Suspenders and Gingham2. Fancy Pants. This fall, you’ll need a pair of pants that make a statement. We’ve chosen these Skinny Trousers with Suspenders, $28.50 and coming soon. Oh, and gingham isn’t just for summer anymore; this trend will carry on into the coming season so don’t pack up those check prints quite yet!

Things to Keep you Warm 3. Graphic Sweatshirts are still going strong. This week, we’re featuring our super soft Williamsburg Pullover, $18.50. And don’t forget a comfy scarf—it’s one fall necessity you can’t live without!

Plaid 4. Plaid. Now this one’s a no-brainer. We’re all about grunge-inspired plaid pieces like this Oversized Hooded Plaid Shirt, $22.50.

Track Sole Flats 5. Track Sole Shoes. We’ve moved on from thick-bottomed sneakers, but we still love a lady-like flat with a white track sole like our Loafers with Textured Bottom $27.50.

Aviator Jacket 6. Motorcycle Jackets. This year, swap out your classic leather moto jacket for our Tweed Motorcycle Jacket with Sherpa Collar, just $35 and available in stores now!

July 30, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Shop Her Look: Melanie of “Lace and Combat Boots”

Whenever I need styling tips on how to re-imagine classic pieces with stripes, gingham or plaid, I turn to Crossroads Style Council member Melanie Sutrathada. In fact, she’s such a pro at pairing black with white that she’s this week’s inspiration for Shop Her Look“.

Get Melanie’s classic black and white look with our Grid Print Maxi Dress, $32.50.

Or try another trend at the top of our list for fall trends: gingham. You can look forward to seeing this print in dresses, skirts and even outerwear! Mod Swing Dress in Gingham, $32.50.

For a black and white overcoat like Melanie’s above, go for our Sleeveless Trench in Check, $32.50. Sleeveless trench coats will be huge this season,  and we love them because they offer a fitted silhouette with tons of layering options.

Finally, I think Melanie would agree that we should all dress for summer as long as possible (before the return of the dreaded East Coast winter), and there’s no better way than to keep wearing sandals! Our Racer Stripe Slip-Ons, $32.50,  are made of butter soft leather and feature a modern cut.

If you haven’t already added Melanie’s Lace and Combat Boots to your weekly list of must-read fashion blogs, make sure you start tuning in stat, because this New Yorker has a knack for inspiring her readers in life, style and fashion.
