One of my favorite go-to pieces is a great, colorful graphic tee. They are super in right now, which means they can go for upwards of $60 at trendy retailers. Lucky for us Crossroads fiends, you can go in and find a secondhand tee for a quarter of that price! I recently picked up a few during a Crossroads shopping spree, and I found myself pursuing Instagram and my blogroll for spring and summer graphic tee outfit inspo.
There was no shortage of great outfits, so I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ones. Take a look at five ways to style a graphic tee this season!
Your graphic tee doesn’t have to be a standalone statement piece; find bottoms with similar colors for a fun, unexpected look!
Top It With a Blazer
Add a blazer over a graphic tee for a casual yet chic and pulled-together look.
Tuck It Into High Waist Trousers
Tuck that perfectly worn-in graphic tee into your favorite pair of high waist trousers, and you’ve got a no-fail outfit uniform for almost any day of the week.
Dress It Up
There’s no reason a graphic tee has to be casual. Pair your favorite graphic tee with a skirt or layer it under a silk slip dress for your new go-to date night outfit.
Pair It With Denim for Everyday
Of course, my favorite way to wear a graphic tee is with my favorite pair of worn-in jeans for an everyday look.
Our newest arrivals include these adorable cotton day dresses! Each piece features a fit-and-flare silhouette flattering on all shapes and sizes complete with a waist tie in matching print. Come shop these spring-ready frocks at Crossroads this weekend!

It’s that time of year again: music festival season! From Coachella to Lollapalooza and all the festivals in between, it’s not just about the music. It’s also a time to take a chance and have fun with fashion! From bold trends to outrageous combos, the festival scene is known for some experimental style. Honestly, I’ve gone from attending music festivals to just staying home and pursuing Instagram for fashion highlights.
Take a look at some of the trends your favorite celebrities were rocking at Coachella last weekend!
Alessandra Ambrosio knows that fanny packs are on-trend, sensible, and will hold the all your necessities.
Look chic and stay cool in an all-white ensemble like Olivia Culpo!
‘90s-inspired micro sunglasses are going to be everywhere and are this year’s coolest way to finish your festival outfit. Model Amalie Gassmann topped off her shimmery two-piece with a cat-eye pair.
Boho, redefined. Sweet, floral dresses paired with cowboy boots flooded the Coachella desert last weekend and will surely spread as festival season continues.
You’re dancing your way through the desert all day and night—ditch the no-support, flimsy sandals and don’t even pretend heels are an option. Follow Rebecca Black’s lead and find some good quality combat boots to keep up with you!
Printed matching sets were all over the desert last season, and it’s no wonder why: they’re a chic, easy way to make a statement, as model Sara Sampaio shows!
Kendall Jenner wore this sporty outfit to beat the heat. Music festivals are physically exhausting, so make it a bit easier on yourself and go for comfort when planning your outfits!
Hold your horses, ladies – it’s derby season! The derby is an occasion that brings out people’s most elegant and glamorous fashion statements. From placing your bets on your leading horse to choosing the perfect headpiece to complete your derby-approved outfit, there’s never a dull moment when it comes to opening day at the race tracks.
Let’s talk derby outfit tips inspired by some of our favorite bloggers:
There’s no such thing as being overdressed for opening day at the derby! Match the sunny mood with a midi sundress or an outfit in a spring shade like light blue, light pink, or mint green.
Stray away from traditional derby attire and opt for a quirky graphic tee tucked into a scallop-edged skirt.
Turn heads like a blogger by going for a voluminous full-length skirt with a cute blouse and neck scarf.
Headpieces are always an opening day staple. Choose a wide-brimmed hat or a fascinator to make any outfit a statement one.
Keep it feminine and flirty in floral prints! Finish your outfit with extra details like ribbons and bows and then style it up with a pair of wedges.
Show off your figure in a bodycon dress. Looking for extra style points? Achieve crowning elegance with a fancy updo that accentuates your headpiece.
A capsule wardrobe challenge dares you to create a small, curated wardrobe. The size and length of time you do it for is dependent on which challenge you choose to participate in. In the process, you learn to style and be creative with less, so that you can grow your personal style understanding and become appreciative of what you can do with a smaller wardrobe.
There are so many challenges you can participate in, but here are the two most popular and the gist of each:
- The 10×10 Challenge: Use 10 items to create 10 outfits in 10 days.
- Project 333: Use 33 items to create outfits for 3 months.
Of course, you’re free to create your own challenge with your own designated amount of items and timeline. No matter how you decide to challenge yourself, remember that it’s not about the rules; it’s about having fun and seeing what you can do to challenge your style routine.
If you aren’t yet convinced to give a wardrobe challenge a shot, these five benefits you’ll experience may just do the trick!
1. Save Time in the Morning
When you’re able to see your entire wardrobe in one glance, and you have less to choose from in the morning, you’ll free up time for you to hit snooze one more time, finally eat breakfast before work, or get to the office just a little bit earlier!
2. Save Money
Even if you’re doing one of the shorter challenges, if it goes well and inspires you, there’s a good chance you’ll eventually have less of a desire to shop in the future, and you’ll appreciate what you can do with less.
3. Gain More Closet Space & Organization
Piggybacking on the idea that you’ll appreciate what you’re able to create with a smaller wardrobe, when you’re more selective in what you decide to add to your wardrobe in the future, you’ll inevitably free up some precious space that”ll help you to keep an organized closet.
4. Fuel Your Creativity
A capsule wardrobe challenge is one of my favorite ways to get rid of a wardrobe slump. You’re forced to be creative with less, weeding out unnecessary noise in your closet from pieces that haven’t been worn for a multitude of reasons: improper fit, nothing to pair it with, don’t know how to style it, etc.
5. Hone Your Personal Style
When creating your capsule wardrobe for a challenge, you will most likely end up choosing your favorite pieces. Learning how to remix your favorite pieces in ways that you hadn’t before will help you to hone in on your personal style. Forget about trends you felt pressured to try or basics you bought just because they’re easy—a capsule wardrobe forces you to select only the pieces you feel best in! You will eventually have a wardrobe of carefully selected pieces that speak specifically to your style.
