January 23rd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 7 Pants Outfits That Will Have You Tossing Your Denim Aside

Denim will always be held close to a fashion girl’s heart. We love our denim and our denim loves us; it’s a closet staple as trends come and go. But there comes a time to experiment and step outside of the fashion box. I’ve been noticing a lot more trousers over denim on my blog roll lately, and I, for one, am all for it! I’ve been swapping out my denim for more trouser styles too. Styled with tees, sweaters, blazers, and bodysuits, trousers are a sophisticated, refreshing change to your wardrobe.

Check out these seven denim-less blogger outfits to inspire you this week!

Style Me Grasie
To say that I would live in Grasie’s striped pants, bodysuit, and leather jacket ensemble might be a bit of an overstatement—but I am loving this comfy combo!

 


Le Happy
Comfy, casual, and trendy: Luanna’s military-inspired trousers can be remixed so many different ways.

 


This Time Tomorrow
Krystal stuns in winter white with these chic oversized cropped trousers.

 


Polienne
Brace yourselves: cargo pants are coming back! It’s true—an updated wide leg cut and dark wash keeps this trend modern.

 


What Olivia Did
You can’t go wrong with a graphic tee beneath a fitted gingham suit.

 


Le Dressing De Leeloo
I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of cords this winter, and it looks like Leeloo found them for me! I am loving the modern cropped silhouette.

January 19th, 2018 by Samantha Weaver New Arrivals: Spring Essentials You Can Wear in Winter

With just two weeks to go until Crossroads stores start buying for spring, we’re finding ways to sneak our spring favorites into our winter wardrobes. Warmer weather just can’t come soon enough, so we’re turning to florals, stripes and lighter knits to carry us through the end of our winter rut. Take a look at some of our early spring releases—available at all locations this weekend!

 

A Frilly Floral Dress

 

Nothing says springtime like a floral print. Our Flounce Sleeve Floral Dress ($35) pairs easily with tights and boots for now, and will look just as good with a nude strappy sandal in the warmer months!

 

A Knit Midi Dress

This is one of our favorite transitional pieces. Our Knit Belted Midi Dress ($30) will be a staple in our closets from February through May.

 

A Striped Shirt

This may be a year-round trend, but it’s absolutely tops come spring. Our Tie-Sleeve Striped Blouse ($26.50) is a step up from a classic button-down.

 

A Tie Dye Blouse

Tie dye in spring, you say? Sure, why not! Previously reserved for summer fests worldwide, this classic print has been updated with our Mineral Dyed Blouse ($26.50)

January 18th, 2018 by Mary Elizabeth Styling Classic Converse All Stars

Heeey, I’m Mary.  You may have seen me around the Internet or on Crossroads’s Instagram feed at some point. I’ve somehow made it all these years on the Crossroads Style Council without an official Crossroads blog post.  So, here I am with a little about me, my style philosophy, and my favorite Crossroads finds!

Officially, my career is personal shopper and stylist. I work in fashion and interiors with individuals & brands. You could also call me a “Youtuber”, as my largest audience is at my channel HeyMaryElizabeth.  I live in Los Angeles with my mini schnauzer and nearby thoroughbred, dreaming of my future ranch and organic garden.

Born in the suburbs of Los Angeles, skate and surf culture permeated the air. Neighborhood kids searched for empty pools to skate, and Vans and Converse were the epitome of cool. And high tops were the height of it—I mean, of course the ones with the star were coolest. Duh.

Luckily, their appeal hasn’t worn off, and it’s been a lifelong love affair. I recently decided I needed a pair of high top white All Stars, and a few weeks later—as fate would have it—I stepped into Crossroads in Studio City to discover my size, like new, for under $20.  SOLD—the perfect addition for all my cropped pants. We’ll just call ‘em winter white.  A girly tomboy for life, here’s how I paired my new friend, Chuck:

January 16th, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Ways to Style Over-the-Knee Boots

Between you and me, there’s nothing a pair of over-the-knee boots can’t do to jazz up an outfit. Not only are they versatile, you can use them as an extra layer for warmth during winter. Consider investing in a great pair (make sure to check out your local Crossroads!) for an easy, effortless way to make a casual outfit look more chic.

Any of these combinations are a fail-proof shortcut for pulling off over-the-knee boots.

 

knee boots
An obvious fashion choice for over-the-knee boots is layering them over skinny jeans. Pair a chunky sweater with form-fitting denim for a sleek silhouette.

 


A sweater dress with over-the-knee boots is everything you need to channel your inner fashionista this winter.

 


Combine two trends by wearing a shearling coat with your boots.

 


Don’t want your over-the-knees boots to be the focal point of your outfit? Try adding a long cardigan or coat.

 


If you think that OTK boots should only be reserved for girls’ night out, think again. You can easily wear these types of boots with something more casual and comfy, like a cozy oversized sweater.

 


Style your over-the-knee boots with a high-waisted skirt and beret for the ultimate French-girl vibe.
