It’s official! We are now buying for summer at all Crossroads locations!

Since you have a long weekend ahead, it’s the perfect time to do some final spring cleaning in your very own closet. Look for in-season items you’re ready to part with and bring them into one of our 32 locations or simply request a Crossroads Sell by Mail bag – because starting this weekend, we’re filling our stores with some amazing summer pieces.

Scarf Hem Midi Dress, $35

Style Icon: Vanessa Hudgens

This week we focus on the best source for summer inspiration: our style icon, Vanessa Hudgens. Her laid back boho style is the perfect look for fancy free days of sunshine and sandy beaches. Vanessa can go from total boho goddess to a cool downtown look, always staying true to her distinct style.

Take some chances this summer and channel our girl, Vanessa Hudgens!

Trending: Unisex Backpacks

A well-made backpack is a wonderful thing. Perfect for music festivals or a quick walk down to your local farmer’s market, these bags are a favorite for men and women alike.

We’re committed this summer to utilitarian accessories, so naturally we’re all in on the backpack trend.  Check out these ones, now available in Crossroads stores, and tell us which one is your favorite in the comments section below.

Backpacks 034Thick Stripe with Front Pocket, $42.50.

Backpacks 008Tan Canvas Backpack with Zippers, $42.50.

Backpacks 026Railroad Stripe, $42.50.

Backpacks 011Jason is all over the backpack trend this season. I’ve seen him carry everything from leather backpacks to small canvas ones like these. He can’t seem to decide on just one!

Look of the Week: Palazzo Pants

Oh, Summer! We’ve had some good times, and even though we’re really looking forward to fall, we’re just not quite ready to let you go. So we’re saying farewell to the warm weather, lazy days and BBQ’s with palazzo pants: the easy-to-wear, flowy, ridiculously comfortable summertime pants everyone should have at least one pair of.

We’re kicking things off with Jessie of Style & Pepper, a member of our Style Council. The perfect blend of put together and totally relaxed, Jessie shows us how to dress up palazzo pants with metallic accents and luxurious fabric (and she looks fabulous in these metallic platforms from Crossroads).

Now here’s a look at some more of our favorite ways to wear palazzo pants. Until next time, Summer… *sigh*palazzo_boho

Look of the Week: Fall Style for Summer

Our stores have begun the seasonal ritual of clearing out their summer items and bringing in beautiful fall goodies. But the weather outside can be frightful…in a hot-as-Hades kind of way. What’s a girl (or guy) to do?

The answer is a combo of the best that both seasons have to offer: a fall-inspired color palette in summer heat-friendly styles.

Crossroads Style Council member Jennifer of Seeking Style paired a romantic navy floral cami with a high-waisted, deep red skirt, along with tan leather accessories. Her ensemble gives a nod to the approaching fall season without requiring her to sacrifice comfort in the midst of summer. Oh, and this entire outfit is from Crossroads.

Back-to-school might be sneaking up, but let’s stay in the present:

Studio City brings designer accessories made to be enjoyed in the summer and we think California’s casual queen, Kate Hudson, would flip for the bright, iconic Missoni bag and simple Gucci sandals.

So relax a little longer and let us know what you think with a comment because we’re picking a winner for another $25 gift certificate this Friday.

Sneak Peek

ya nautical print dress

Forgive the black tights – it’s freezing in the Bay Area! But for all you lucky fashionistas busy catching sun, here are more summer goodies headed your way.

Hit up your local Crossroads* for silky dresses in an artsy print or the cutest nautical mini from Ya. Can’t you just see it with woven flats and a straw fedora?

I wish that could be me, but unless the weather improves, rock it for me next week!

There’s simply no summer without sun, which means the coming months just aren’t complete without a pair of shades. So whether you want to protect your peepers or make a big statement (why hellooo Dolce!), invest in some quality sunglasses this season.
