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.

Check out these other looks that satisfy our itch to wear fall clothes before the weather has cooled off.

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

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.

Our summer trend report just went up and what do you know? Some more season-perfect designer bags arrived in Sacramento.

These leather stunners from Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs are totally aligned with fashion’s new obsession with classics and pale neutrals. And even though tan isn’t a daring color, you definitely notice it against crisp summer whites.

So give your black bag a rest and try a new style you’ll want to keep forever.
