October 4, 2022 Trending: This Floral Fashion Style

Floral fashion pieces feel like they’re always trending, but this fall season has a particular floral print standing out from the rest. It’s the homestead floral print, and its prints are inspired by the pretty and delicate ones you find on tea towels or linens.

You’ll know the print when you see it because it’s dainty and has a prairie feel. It’s usually in earthy tones too. We’ve included this special floral under the “homestead chic” style listed in our most recent seasonal selling guide.

This floral fashion print is a departure from bigger and bolder ones we’ve seen in recent years. Keep an eye out for them when shopping at any of our store locations, and keep scrolling to see a few examples of this floral fashion print.

The print looks perfect on dresses, skirts, blouses, and aprons. You’ll usually find it in light cotton fabric, and it matches as well with denim as a soft neutral cardigan.

If you’ve incorporated homestead chic into your fall wardrobe, we want to see how you’re styling it! Tag us on Instagram @crossroadstrading, and you might find your look on our brand feed.

September 27, 2022 70s Style Fashion Looks That Inspire

We’re not done gushing over 70s style fashion looks, as you can tell from its recurring inclusion in our seasonal selling guides. The 70s were probably one of the best decades for fashion with highly-recognizable silhouettes, colors, and textures.

Driven by a love for shopping secondhand, many people are rediscovering the best of the decade, and 70s style fashion looks can be seen on the streets with a modern twist. You can, of course, find some great pieces in our Crossroads stores. In fact, here’s a list of some of the 70s pieces we can’t get enough of.

Leather Blazer

A leather blazer is a classic 70s piece, especially when you find one in colored leather.

Crochet

Crochet pieces immediately bring the 70s to mind! Look for halter tops and ponchos.

Corduroy

Pants, dress, jacket…just make it corduroy!

Mini & Boots

A mini dress or skirt alone is a 70s fashion favorite. Add knee-high boots to take it straight back to the decade.

Vest

Add this to your shopping list for your next thrift store visit. Look for tapestry and floral prints to really strike the look.
