January 13th, 2017 by Samantha Weaver Crossroads’s New Collection: Spring Trends 2017

There’s a lot to get excited about when it comes to spring fashion at Crossroads. Fun prints, brighter colors, and for the second year in a row, our three favorite trends are reappearing at all locations nationwide. Here’s a first look at select pieces and trends from our new collection, coming spring 2017.

Off-the-Shoulder: The Silhouette of the Season

Off-the-Shoulder has officially crossed over from trend of the moment to wardrobe mainstay.

Get on board with our Striped Knit Off-the-Shoulder Dress ($45). It features a midi length, open back, and three-quarter sleeves. Looks great with a belt bag!

Cool Culottes

Culottes are great year-round, but this spring they’ll be back in the spotlight due to their versatility.

From weekend-ready knits to polished evening alternatives, culottes can do it all. You’ll find them pleated, with an oversized leg, and even hiding under a skort this season. Our Denim Culottes Skort ($48.50) is a win-win for all you 2-in-1 lovers out there. Dress culottes up for work or keep it more casual on the weekend—they’re the epitome of a versatile wardrobe essential.

Statement Jacket

This season’s jackets don’t just finish an outfit, they define it.

Make sure your jacket game is strong. Whether you delve into embroidered accents or bold prints, make sure you make a statement this season with your outerwear. Our Mirror Print Bomber ($42.50) will finish off any spring look with a bang.

All items are new and available at all Crossroads locations! Stay tuned here for a first look at our new arrivals.

April 12th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Top Seven Spring Wardrobe Essentials

Spring is here, which means unpredictable and temperamental weather. It’s not uncommon for it to be raining and chilly in the morning, sunny and warm by mid-afternoon, and then frigidly cold by nighttime. To prepare for the inconsistent weather, start with your wardrobe! Check out the round-up below of my top seven spring wardrobe essentials to help you survive this temperamental season.

1. Long, Lightweight Coatspring wardrobeA lightweight trench coat or duster is timeless and versatile. Layer one over your outfit during chilly spring mornings and evenings.

2. Midi CutsmidiDresses and skirts in midi cuts will keep you covered but cool—not to mention super chic.

3. Cropped TrouserstrousersIf it’s still too chilly for skirts and dresses, go for a pair of cropped trousers that can be paired with flats, boots, or heels for a classic, clean look.

4. Chambray Shirtspring wardrobeWill these ever go out of style? We think not. Timeless, chic, and versatile, a chambray shirt is the perfect weight and layering piece for spring.

5. Open ShoesopenThe early days of spring don’t call for sandals just yet, but wearing open toe, open back, or cutout shoes gives you a taste of that freedom.

6. Perfect SunniessunniesThe sun is finally shining, and what better way to accessorize than with a perfect pair of sunnies?

7. Silk Scarf

The best part is that all these essentials will work with your existing wardrobe, as well as mixed and matched with each other. What is your favorite spring wardrobe essential?

March 28th, 2016 by Melanie Sutrathada 4 Pieces to Transition You from Winter to Spring

April is almost here, and you know what that means—spring is just around the corner! To gracefully transition your wardrobe from winter to spring, here are my favorite on-trend pieces that blend fashion and function:

winter to spring

1. L​ight trenchcoat
A trench will be your absolute go-to​ on​ those tricky in-between weather days. Go for one in an unexpected color like pink or forest green.

2. Striped crop top.
Pair this top with other items in your wardrobe and you’ll always be a stylish step above the rest. Style your crop top with breezy wide leg culottes on a sunny day or with high-waisted suede pants and a longline trench to beat an unexpected chill.

3. Chambray shirt
Th​is versatile piece will add just the right amount of cool to any look. Tuck it into a maxi skirt or throw it on as an extra layer. The possibilities are endless with a chambray shirt!

4. Floral-patterned midi skirt.
The Devil Wears Prada‘s ​Miranda Priestly famously said, “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.” But we’re standing behind florals. Florals will ​always be on trend this time of year and are an easy way to take your heavier winter clothes into a lighter, brighter season.

February 19th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver WWD MAGIC 2016: What We Bought

Our buying team just returned from WWD MAGIC, and we can’t wait to reveal this year’s new and returning trends for spring and summer 2016. We shopped and walked (6.86 miles in one day, according to my Fitbit) and shopped some more to fill our stores with everything from festival wear to edgy activewear.

So what are some of the new trends to look forward to at Crossroads this summer? Western-inspired pieces like red bandanas, braided denim detailing and structured hats were a big surprise—and a big hit! If the whole prairie look is going a little too far for you, there was a lot of carry-over from 2015, including ’70s-inspired bottoms, bohemian silhouettes, and safari color stories.

Take a look at some of the styles and décor that inspired us at WWD MAGIC 2016!
