APRIL 20, 2015 By Gina The Best of Spring Trends

Crossroads Trading in Evanston, IL is blooming with some of spring’s hottest trends and just had to share their favorite picks with you! Take a look below at some of the the fun looks they pulled straight off their racks.

Bold Blooms
Jordan is mixing and matching some great spring trends here. Her bold floral pattern dress is fun, while her classic cream trench gives her a polished look. Topped off with some heels in a spring neutral and a statement bag, and she’s ready for an adventure.

Council Looks

If you haven’t met the Crossroads Style Council, I urge you to check out our stylish group! I personally follow each one and I am so inspired reading through their blogs; the group is made up of such successful and
creative women.

If you have not yet “met” the Style Council, here’s an introductory round-up of the group featuring my favorite recent looks from each member!

Samantha: Style Infurno

I adore Samantha’s floral bomber jacket! It is the perfect piece for the Nor Cal’s spring weather and freshens up your basic pieces.

Beth: B. Jones Style

I followed Beth before the Style Council was created and am a bit of a fan girl, so sharing a spot on the Style Council and have gotten to spend a bit of time with her has been a treat for me! I love how fun Beth’s eclectic style is and how creative she is in mixing and matching vintage, secondhand, and new pieces.
