We’re big fans of easy dressing at Crossroads, which is why we can’t seem to keep ourselves from shopping this summer’s hottest trend: boho chic. Incorporating the bohemian trend into your wardrobe is super simple—in fact, it can be accomplished with just one trip to your nearest Crossroads store this week!
Here are some guidelines to choosing boho pieces that are updated and chic.
1. Keep the silhouette simple
Reach for maxi dresses and skirts because they elongate your figure.
2. Don’t mix prints
When sporting bold prints, go for either an all-over print or a matching set.
3. Be selective with your accessories
Some would say the more the merrier, but we’re recommending that you highlight one piece and keep the rest of your accessories minimal. Whether you want to feature a nice leather bag or a statement necklace, keep the accessory count to 1-3 pieces, or you’ll find yourself in a festival style nightmare.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again: fashion is a means to express and introduce yourself before you’ve said a single word. Powerful, successful ladies are finally getting the respect we deserve. It’s a time when women can break professional and fashion boundaries, so I’m sharing my favorite style cues from TV’s most powerful women—who show that you don’t need to compromise style when you’re looking for respect.
Olivia Pope, Scandal
Pope (portrayed by Kerry Washington) is often dressed in soft, lighter colors, making her stand out in a room full of dark, drab suits. She commands a room and make’s the audience’s eyes go straight to her.
Annalise Keating, How to Get Away With Murder
The no-nonsense Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) can be cold and tougher than she needs to be, but her wardrobe certainly does not lack a feminine sensibility, with curve-hugging dresses and a jewelry collection to covet.
Selina Meyer, Veep
Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) doesn’t mess with the standard monochromatic pantsuit when it comes to dressing for the public eye; she sticks to bold colors that show off her form and reflect her leadership qualities.
Mindy Lahiri, The Mindy Project
Mindy (Mindy Kaling) manages to successfully balance motherhood, being an OBGYN at a clinic, and running her own fertility practice, all while showing her strong personality with a mix of colors, fabrics, and silhouettes.
Kate Beckett, Castle
With the series ending this past spring, we sadly won’t be able to see Kate (Stana Katic) every week—but that’s what Netflix is for, right?! Kate is intelligent and resilient, and she does not sacrifice style while kicking ass. Kate’s style is tough, minimalist chic with subtle sexy details mixed in.
