October 9th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 5 Fall Instagram Trends

I often turn to Instagram for style inspiration and quick overviews of what’s trending. I follow countless bloggers and street style stars and often categorize the images and outfit “likes” for easy access to ideas, tips, and #OOTD inspo when getting dressed in the morning.  With the changing season, new trends have been populating my feed and I’m sharing 5 of the most “liked” Instagram trends for this fall season.


Leopard Skirts + Dresses
The hottest resurgence for fall, leopard print has been one of the top Instagram style trends this season.


Blazers are the perfect lightweight second layer for this tricky transitional weather.


Polka Dots
From “delicate and feminine” to “big and bold,” polka dots are taking over Instagram in the form of dresses, blouses, pants, and accessories!


Belt Bags
Belt bags (or the modern version of a fanny pack) have been trending for the past couple of years, and this season the It girls are wearing the convenient hands free bag like a crossbody.

This subdued burnt orange is the perfect mix of bold and chic and is the color of autumn.

We’ve put together a few boots for you need for fall:

For those days where it seems like the rain just won’t stop pouring, you’ll be glad that you invested in a cute pair of rain boot like Blair Eadie from Atlantic Pacific.

As far as we’re concerned, chukka boots can make any outfit look instantly more stylish.


Thank goodness that fall is back because we’ve been waiting to wear over-the-knee boots for the longest time!



It’s time to break all the rules, and wear white boots after Labor Day!



Fashion alert: sock boots are back for the second year in a row!



Finding out how to style a pair of low-cut boots can be hard. Style with edgier details like fishnet stockings to toughen up the look.

October 2nd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 4 Ways to Elevate Plaid This Fall

Plaid for fall is about as groundbreaking as florals for spring. But it’s a classic print that is quintessentially autumnal and somehow reinvented each year with new color palettes, new vibes and moods, and unexpected fabrics and shapes.  Don’t just designate plaid to oversize button-down tops and leggings. Instead, take a look at 4 ways to elevate plaid this fall.

1. Plaid Print Mixing

Plaid on plaid is double the fun! To pull off mixing plaid prints, pair contrasting colors and sizes of the print, like Michelle did with her yellow plaid blouse and green plaid suit.

2. Opposites Attract

Style your favorite plaid piece with an unexpected texture like leather or sequins. Bethany takes athleisure to a new level with plaid trousers paired with a sequin hoodie.

3. Go Big With the Print

An exaggerated or stretched plaid in soft colors creates a minimalist look.

4. Suit Up

Undoubtedly the most popular way to elevate plaid this season is with a blazer and/or suit combo.

Of course, there are more than 4 ways to elevate plaid this fall! We’d love to see how you wear it. Share your looks with us on Instagram by tagging us @crossroadstrading.
