November 11th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver 10 Wardrobe Essentials to Buy in Your Thirties

Truth: I just turned 32 and I’ve been working for Crossroads since I was 22. Needless to say, my style has change a lot over the last decade. Luckily (thanks to Crossroads), I’ve spent the last decade trading in styles that may not be “me” any longer for new and improved pieces fit for a woman in her thirties.

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a kind of “style uniform” and an appreciation for investment pieces. Of course, your taste will continue to evolve, and experimenting with trends from time to time is always fun, but now’s the time in your life to think of the adage “fewer, better things.”

Here are ten timeless essentials to start collecting—and good news! Crossroads is a great way to find styles like these at a hefty discount.

 

1. A Classic Leather Jacket

 

2. A Lady Like Handbag

3. A Midi Skirt

 

4. A Crisp White Button-Down

 

5. Ankle Boots

 

6. A Slim Trouser

 

7. A Cashmere Sweater

 

8. A Masculine Coat

 

9. A Strappy Sandal

 

10. A Structured Dress

Here’s to finding your top ten go-to pieces at Crossroads! Happy Shopping!

July 8th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver New In: Bohemian Dresses and Matching Sets

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.

Border Print Side Tie Top ($27.50)
Border Print Maxi Skirt with Side Tie ($35)
Tiger Eye Antique Pendant ($22.50)

Off the Shoulder Stripe Dress ($35)
Flowers in a Bottle Necklace ($15)

Tie Front Floral Blouse ($26.50)
Tiered Floral Midi Skirt ($35)
Crystal Ball Necklace ($12.50)

Mirror Print Handkerchief Hem Dress ($38.50)
Bird Whistle Necklace ($20)

June 30th. 2016 by Melanie Sutrathada How to Wear a White Lace Dress

P3 - Song of StyleIf you’re not a huge fan of dresses, pair two eye-catching separates in similar textures together for the same feel. This “dress” is actually a skirt!

P4 - Viva LuxuryThe flared cuff sleeves and tiered mini skirt on Annabelle’s light and airy dress make such a statement that it doesn’t need many accessories. Keep it simple by throwing on a quilted bag to hold all of your essentials.
