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)
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:
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.
Get cozy and warm yourself up with our newest warm-toned knits! Courtney of Pretty Little Fawn is a known master of the color tan. We’re taking notes and showing you how to wear this super luxurious hue to warm up even the coldest winter day!
From light tan to deep chestnut, we love Courtney’s affinity for these warm neutral tones. Take a peek at our newest arrivals—perfect for re-creating any of her looks!
These sweaters will be in stock at all Crossroads locations by the weekend!
When the temperatures drop, your style doesn’t have to suffer. Here are five looks from some of our favorite bloggers to inspire your next cold-weather outfits for warmth and style!
Cable Knit Crazy
The thicker the knit, the warmer you’ll be! To recreate Michele‘s look, layer your favorite cable knit sweater with a heavy coat and top it all off with your cutest beanie.
Keeping it Colorful
I love that Dylana dresses in color despite the snowstorms in New York! From her makeup to her rust-colored cords, she inspires us to stand out even in the nastiest weather.
Maja knows that you can’t go wrong with all black, and playing with proportions in layering creates interest in an otherwise minimalistic outfit.
Layers, Layers, & More Layers
Become a layering expert (see tips from Melanie here)! Tights under your pants, a thin long-sleeve tee under your sweater, and a scarf and a hat on top of it all will help you stay warm when you’re venturing out into those freezing temperatures.
Use Your Coat as a Statement Piece
Natalie doesn’t let cold temperatures keep her inside! Being so bundled up can put a damper on your style, but there are so many different coats and jackets that make a statement all on their own!
