If there was ever a season to play around with loud and unique prints, spring is the time! Eye-catching prints completely dominated the spring runways and proved that this season is all about making a statement and having fun in the process. Whether you wear a single pattern from head to toe, or mix and match a few clashing prints, you’ll be one step ahead of the style game when you incorporate some pattern play into your wardrobe. Of all the trending prints for spring, the 5 listed below are definitely the most noteworthy for the spring season ahead!
Retro, yet timeless, polka-dots are a sophisticated print that we will see just about everywhere this spring season! We will be seeing this playful pattern on everything from clothing to accessories!
The 60’s are back baby! Whether its a vibrantly hued florals or wavy shapes, psychedelic patterns are coming back with a bang and are a great way to incorporate a “hero” piece into any outfit!
From contrasting stripes to tie-dyed gradients, color is definitely in this spring season and rainbow patterns are as fun to wear as they are to look at! Go ahead and keep your favorite tie-dye tee in rotation from last season, but be bold and try some fresh silhouettes as this pattern grows in popularity this spring!
Think Hawaiian vacation, but with an 80’s flair, tropical florals are a stylish way to add an exotic beach vibe to any spring wardrobe. When trying this trend for yourself, seek out larger florals and saturated hues!
With suiting in such high demand this season, it is no surprise that plaid is a top contender for spring’s trendiest patterns! Wear this pattern from head to toe for a menswear-inspired look that is a sure power move!
March 4th 2020, By Samantha Furno Sell This, Shop That
Spring is officially a few weeks out and now is the ideal time to do a bit of seasonal organizing within your wardrobe! When it comes to a closet cleanout, I’ve found the best way to sort through the chaos within my closet is by categorizing my pieces into three piles: keep, sell and donate. Prior to diving into my organization, I always take a peek at the Crossroads selling guide so I can make sure that I am setting aside pieces that are aligned with the current buying needs of my local Crossroads.
Since I recently did a cleanout myself, I wanted to share with you a few styles that are worth bringing to Crossroads to sell, as well as styles that are worth shopping for as a replacement!
Sell:Co-Ords & Buy:Slip Dresses
Matching sets, also known as co-ords, are a fantastic and effortless duo for any spring line-up, but if you’re ready to part with that set that’s been sitting in your wardrobe for the past year, then I highly recommend seeking out a chic, mid-length slip dress for spring instead!
Sell:Sequins & Buy:Lace
Sequins are listed on the current selling guide at Crossroads, so go ahead and bring in those holiday-inspired pieces and seek out a fresh lace style for the new season.
Sell:Neon & Buy:Pastels
Neon is still very much having its moment in fashion, but if you’re ready to switch up the hues in your wardrobe this season, go ahead and add your neon styles to your sell pile and shop around for some softer, pastel hues!
Sell:Trench Coat & Buy:A Blazer
Trench coats are right in line with this season’s tailoring trend, but so are blazers! Trade out your long line trench for a blazer that is slightly oversized and patterned for that ultimate cool girl vibe!

February 26th 2020 By Samantha Furno 5 Styles Worth Trying this Spring Season
Fashion trends are coming and going at a faster pace than ever before, which is why it can seem hard to fully pinpoint which trends are actually worth exploring each season! Lucky for you, I’ve done a bit of the legwork and have rounded up a few trending styles that are going to be incredibly relevant for Spring 2020.
Check out my top picks for spring that are definitely worth making room for in your wardrobe!
A Statement Making Top
When it comes to making a statement this spring season, it’s safe to say that the puffier the sleeve the better! A subtle ode to the Victorian Era, romantic tops with higher necklines, layered ruffles and voluminous sleeves are a definite must-have for the months up ahead.
A Chic Textured Bag
Simple and eye-catching? Yes, indeed! Woven bags are an elegant yet understated way to update your spring outfits in a flash. This coming season, opt for a woven bag in a bright color, or even add a pair of woven mules to the mix to experience this texture from head-to-toe!
A Babydoll Dress
Flowy and feminine, the babydoll silhouette is an easy and breezy style that can easily translate from day to night with the help of a few key accessories! Wear it with chunky sneakers while running errands in town or with a pair of flossy heels for the ultimate date night pairing!
Likely one of the more unsuspecting styles to be popular this coming season, clogs are taking the fashion world by storm! Love them or hate them, this infamous chunky heel will surely be sticking around through the summer season as well!
A Tailored Set
Tailoring is definitely not groundbreaking for the spring season, but trust me, this menswear-inspired trend is going to be bigger than ever as things start to heat up! Pastel hues and feminine prints are a playful way to carry this stylish set into the season ahead seamlessly!
