September 14th, 2018 by Samantha Weaver New Arrivals: Clueless-Inspired Outfits for 2018

Are you a Cher, a Tai or a Dionne? Because we love each Clueless character’s personal style so much (even 23 years later!), we’ve rounded up our newest arrivals and styled them with a modern day Clueless vibe in mind.

Which look would you wear? 

 

DIONNE

Dionne always had a bit more flare than the rest of the cast, and for that, we think she’d be rocking her signature green plaid like the #bosslady she is in 2018. Sport our Green Plaid Skater Dress ($32.50) to channel Dionne. Add in a classic gold button blazer, leather ankle boots and a mini bag—Clueless rules demand that you color-match!

 

Tai

I’m 100% a Tai, and I love her style before and after her movie makeover. We’ve combined them into this everyday Tai look with our Plaid Moto Jacket ($42.50), denim overalls, a ribbed crop top and leather mules.

 

CHER

While I love each of Cher’s look in the classic 1995 film, her opening scene look will forever be my favorite! Recreate her look with our Yellow Plaid Mini Dress ($32.50). Instead of the matching yellow cardigan and jacket, we’ve added a cropped suede blazer, leather cut-out heels, and an ivory hip bag. True to ’90s style, we’ve layered the look over a plain white tee.

Already planning your Halloween outfit? These plaids work for a Clueless Halloween look as well! Available at all Crossroads locations next week!

September 11, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: How to Wear the Western Trend

The Western trend is nothing new. It’s been meandering in the fashion industry the last several years, but it’s become apparent from recent runway shows that we are in a full-blown ’80s Western trend revival.

I feel your hesitation. I echo your hesitation. I’m all for having fun getting dressed, but going full on Little House on the Prairie has just never been on my style wishlist. It wasn’t until I noticed I was falling for the details of Western wear that I realized there are ways to subtly wear these styles—and that I already have quite a few pieces in my wardrobe that work.

Trends aren’t necessarily meant to be taken literally and worn as they are on the runway. They can inspire and influence a style that you may not have otherwise given a chance.  If you’re a bit hesitant to try the Western trend, read on for five easy ways to subtly incorporate it into your wardrobe.

 

1. Accessorize

Accessories are great way to test the waters of a new trend. Give a touch of Western flare to a neutral outfit with silver buckles, saddle bags, turquoise accents, or a horn necklace like the one Lucy is wearing.

 

2. On Your Feet

Perhaps one of the most obvious ways to try this trend is to rock a pair of cowboy-inspired boots. Go bold with fringe or buckles or understated with subtle stitch detailing. Fall is the perfect time to show off a pair of statement boots in a midi/maxi dress or cropped denim.

 

3. Maxi Shirt Dress

Speaking of dresses, midi and maxi dresses have been trending all year, so I know you have one in your closet. Cinch your dress with a silver buckle belt at the waist, add your favorite booties, and you’ll add a subtle Western vibe to your fall uniform.

 

4. Top It Off

You’ll nary see a cowboy without his hat! For the chicest way to finish your fall outfit with a Western twist, look for a hat with a wide brim and high crown. Bonus points for embroidery or belt detail!

 

5. All in The Details

Fringe, ruffles, and suede are characteristic of Western wear, and they can look thoroughly chic when suitably styled.
