April 10th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: Top Spring Trends & How to Wear Them

Every season has a plethora of trends, new and recycled. I’ve read through all the reports on spring trends for you (you’re welcome!) and have compiled the top five trends for this spring and how to wear them. Take a look below and let us know which one you are the most excited for!

 

Pastels
Coming as no surprise, pastels are one of spring’s hottest trends. I am living for fully pastel outfits this season! Pair pieces in your favorite pastel shade (bonus points for prints and texture) for a chic, put-together look.

 

Floral
Nothing we didn’t already know: spring and florals go together like peanut butter and jelly, and they’ll never be off-trend for the season.  This year, it’s all about big, bold florals. Think ’60s and ’70s floral prints! Pair them with neutral pieces to let them shine, or mix your prints and embrace the maximalist aesthetic.

The Fanny Pack
You can call it a belt bag if you want, but a fanny pack is a fanny pack—and they’ve been having their moment the past couple of seasons. They are convenient and stylish; can’t get better than that! Wear one with elongated pieces to break them up, or invest in a colorful piece to enliven any outfit.

 

Sheer
As temperatures rise, skin-baring fabrics will be your best friend. Sheer details are huge through the spring and summer seasons. We love how this chic piece covers the whole body while still baring plenty.

 

Fringe
‘Tis the season of music festivals… but the fringe you’ll be seeing this season will have a sophisticated twist, far from the typical, tired festival variety. Try fringe in unexpected lengths or placements, or pair it with another trend, like rainbow stripes.

April 6th, 2018 by Samantha Weaver 3 Ways to Style Our Newest Graphic Tees

We can’t seem to stop adding more graphic tees to our ever expanding collections. It’s no surprise we’re hoarding them… A great graphic tee is an essential piece in any wardrobe and can be so much more than basic when expertly styled. Today we’re showing you our three favorite ways to style our newest graphic tee arrivals!

 

1. Layered over a Dress!

Layers add fun and a bit of eccentricity to a look. Here, I layered our Peace Icon T-Shirt ($15) over a gingham dress by BDG and paired the combo with a Jansport fanny pack.

 

2. Tucked into High Waist Denim

My go-to, everyday tuck is a half-tuck into something high-waisted. We’ve styled our Striped Ringer Tee ($15) with ASOS bell bottoms, and it’s giving us major Dazed and Confused vibes, perfect for summer parties and get-togethers.

 

3. Tied or Knotted!

Go from plain to stylish with a simple knot! If you have a longer torso like me, this trick is a must in the summer months. Here we’ve paired our Monarch Butterfly Tee ($15) with black knit culottes by NYTT.

 

Whether you layer it, tuck it, or tie it, you can never go wrong with a couple more new graphic tees! Shop these new arrivals and more at Crossroads this weekend!

April 4th, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Ways to Style a Blazer This Spring

There’s no piece quite like a blazer. This outerwear number is an office wardrobe staple that’s universally flattering, whether it’s fitted, long, or oversized. It’s one of the first pieces we think of when it comes to power dressing. So, what are you waiting for? Pick up a blazer today, and get to styling! Here are 6 ways to style a blazer this spring:

If you already consider yourself the queen of androgynous style, turn your skills up a notch by pairing your blazer with a graphic tee and high-waisted pants.

 

Ready to make a fashion statement? Throw on a vintage blazer, a pleated midi skirt, and a statement belt!

 

A gray blazer, white blouse, and denim pants make for an easy go-anywhere outfit. It’s the combo you’ll be wearing on heavy rotation this season.

 

Double up on outerwear by wearing an oversized blazer and pantsuit.

 

For your next on-the-go look, find a slouchy blazer and pair it with a black slip-dress.

 

Grab a colored blazer, belt it at the waist, and wear it over black pants. It’s a fashion blogger-approved outfit you’ll want to wear on repeat all spring long.

April 3rd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: Spring Vacation Outfit Inspiration

A spring getaway is the perfect way to end your winter blues and get ready for the upcoming summer season.  How many of you suffer from the worry and stress that come with packing? Or with the thought of not having something stylish and functional to wear? Or is the pressure of creating Instagram-worthy moments causing you a style block?

Vacations are supposed to a cure-all for stress, not a cause of it. For a quick and easy no-brainer packing sesh, I’ve gathered some of my favorite, effortless spring vacation outfits from my blog roll to inspire you!

No other print says “spring!” quite like gingham! Don’t be afraid to mix an equally playful print to create an outfit that you can’t help but have fun in.

 


A breezy dress is a must-have for a spring vacation. Throw it on with some comfy slides and you’re ready to sight-see all day!

 


A no-fail formula for the perfect vacation outfit: bold colors, fun print, and a straw hat.

 


Match the blooming flowers around you in pastel pink. Add in a pair of stylish and functional platform sandals for easy on-the-go style.

 


My favorite vacation essential? A versatile jumpsuit. It’s a no-brainer!

 


Have fun and pair your loudest prints and boldest colors together for a tropical island vibe.

 


Don’t forget to pack a bathing suit! From the hotel pool to the ocean, one pieces are trending this season!
