February 10th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 2016 Spring Trends for Women

An early spring has been predicted, and that means it’s time to start thinking about building your 2016 spring wardrobe!

We’re seeing many trends that have continued to stay strong from last year and a resurgence and modernization of past decade styles. Keeping up with ever-changing trends can be overwhelming, but luckily, the Crossroads Spring Style Guide has been released, and I’ve rounded up my top spring trends worth knowing and investing in.

Gather inspiration from the round-up below for what you should be selling, buying, and styling this season, and see how multiple trends can work together.

70’s RevivalSpring Trends

We’ve been seeing the modernization of ’70s style since last year—using subtle hints from the decade is the key. From bold patterns and fringe to a more relaxed silhouette, the ’70s resurgence isn’t going anywhere!

Comfortably Chiccomfy chicAthletic-inspired, relaxed silhouettes and pajama dressing make for a comfortable yet chic spring wardrobe.

February 9th, 2016 by Melanie Sutrathada Valentine’s Day Outfit Inspiration

You just finished booking your reservations, and you’re almost done shopping for your present. All that’s left is picking your outfit! Whether you’re planning a Parks and Recreation-style Galentine’s Day brunch or a special weekend getaway, dressing the part is always one of the most exciting aspects of Valentine’s Day—right behind eating tons of chocolate, of course!

Here are some of my favorite outfits that will steal your heart: 

Valentine's Day
Go minimalist with an all-white ensemble with tons of texture. 

Valentine's Day
Make a bold statement and color block with a bold red midi skirt and a neon pink sweater.

Valentine's Day
Give a subtle nod to Valentine’s Day with relaxed boyfriend jeans and a pale pink blazer. Flowers are optional, but highly encouraged.

Valentine's Day
An oversized red knit sweater and pleated leather skirt are perfect for date night.


Go super romantic with a pretty lace dress and red heels.


A black jumper and structured red coat are perfect for a night on the town at your favorite restaurant.

We’re so excited about our selling guide that we’ve created looks to showcase our favorite spring trends using this week’s new arrivals.

’70s InspiredThis spring, look for ’70s inspiration in a printed jumpsuit like our Abstract Print Culottes Jumpsuit ($35). Add a beaded belt and, of course, a fedora ($35).

Stripes + Tote Bags
Stripes will always be a major player in spring fashion. This season, try wearing stripes on stripes—and don’t forget your favorite tote bag!

 Polka Dots + Mini Bags!
Once you put on our Drawstring Polka Dot Dress ($38.50), you’ll be sold. Featuring an oversized fit and midi length, this super comfy dress is a must-have. Just add a bright mini-bag to finish the look.

Romantic + Mules
Our Romantic Lace Dress ($38.50) has been getting a lot of attention on our Instagram page this week, and it’s easy to see why. Finish the look with a pair of pastel mules.

Off the Shoulder + Athletic Shoes
Two of my favorite trends this season all in one! I’ve been gushing all week about the new pair of sneakers I picked up at our newest store in Boulder, CO, and I love how they pair with our Off the Shoulder Mini Dress ($17.50).

Shop these pieces in stores this coming week!

 

February 3rd, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: How to Wear 2016’s Pantone Colors

Pantone released their color of the year recently, and for the first time, two colors are sharing the honor: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These warm pastel pink and calming baby blue colors complement rich, warm tones, bright and airy colors, and mid-range tones. In short, these two colors will go with almost your entire existing wardrobe!

Even so, maybe you simply aren’t accustomed to wearing pastels. The round-up below will help you naturally incorporate these colors into your wardrobe and open your eyes to two colors that may have never been on your radar—but will soon be popping up everywhere.

February 2nd, 2016 by Melanie Sutrathada The New Jewelry Essentials

Today’s jewelry essentials are so different from what our parents knew. Gone are the days of pearl strands and signet rings. Instead, we’re looking for pieces that add just the right amount of luxury to elevate an everyday look, or ones that make a huge statement to really take our outfits to a show-stopping level.

It’s time to take a closer look into our closets and give our jewelry collections a makeover.

Check out my new jewelry essentials:

Jewelry Essentials

1. A delicate chain that you never take off. Look for one in silver or gold with a small diamond or bit of bling. Layer it with other necklaces or wear it alone for a simple, streamlined feel.

2. The stunning ear crawler. These single earrings sit gorgeously on your ear lobe and are instant conversation-starters.

3. A menswear-inspired watch to keep you on time and stylish. Look for one with a slightly bigger face and a metallic strap.

4. A statement necklace that is sure to catch everyone’s attention. Big necklaces are taking center stage and are great for giving your little black dress some va-va-voom.
