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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

August 16th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 10 Fashion It Girls to Follow on Instagram

From fashion magazines and runway models to bloggers and street style stars, we’ve come a long way in our fashion inspiration sources. Fashion has been able to flourish through technology in the way we’re able to instantly share new ideas, images, and videos. Instagram is my current go-to for fast fashion inspo when I’m lacking my own. It’s a backstage pass to the best in the fashion industry!

Check out my round-up below of my ten favorite fashion it girls to follow on Instagram for endless #ootd inspiration.

instagrams to follow

Natalie Suarez (@natalieoffduty) & Dylana Suarez (@dylanasuarez)

I am combining these two stylish sisters into one pick because I couldn’t choose between the two! There is rarely a blog or Instagram post from each that I don’t save for inspiration. Dylana tends to wear more color and take chances with prints, while Natalie sticks to traditional model-off-duty uniform.

Beth Jones2

Beth Jones (@bjonesstyle)

Beth is a fellow Crossroads Style Council member, but there is no nepotism here! I have been following Beth’s blog and coveting her style long before we were recruited to the CTC Style Council. If you are a thrifter and vintage lover, you will fall in love with Beth!

Anne Laure

Anne-Laure Mais (@adenorah)

This stylist and fashion editor has a wonderfully simple, classic style. She is the epitome of #goals and her everyday style is perfect for when you are needing an outfit-of-the-day idea.

Mary Seng

Mary Seng (@happilygrey)

Mary has been one of my favorite fashion bloggers ever since I started to regularly follow blogs. Her style is on trend yet effortless.

Lucy Williams

Lucy Williams (@lucywilliams02)

Lucy is the ultimate “cool girl” and her wardrobe is enviable for those who are looking to add a bit of edge to their style.

Thania

Thania Peck (@catcherinthestyle)

Thania’s Instagram is a testament to her genuine love of all things fashion and one that you should definitely be following for your daily dose of style inspo.

Cara

Cara Delevingne (@caradelevingne)

Model, actress, and fashionista Cara Delevingne shows her true self on her Instagram, and that includes stunning images from her work, her papped street style, and her candid moments.

Dree

Dree Hemingway (@dreelouisehemingway)

She’s a model, actress, and California girl all the way. Dree’s laid-back, Cali vibe is reflected in her style.

Olivia

Olivia Palermo (@oliviapalermo)

From reality TV star to a style icon in her own right, Olivia’s sophisticated and chic #ootds will leave you both envious and inspired.

Solange

Solange Knowles (@saintrecords)

She may be the little sister of the biggest pop star on the planet, but she shines bright in her own way with her music and her taste in fashion. If you love color, all shapes and sizes, and prints, you will love Solange’s Instagram feed.
