September 18th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: Fall Boot Trends

Personally, booties are year-round footwear, but fall is the official start of boot weather and the perfect time to invest in a new pair (or two) to get you through the dreary weather to come. The beauty of the bootie is that it can easily be dressed up or down to go with any style or outfit.

If you can’t afford investing in a new pair of boots this season, check out your closest Crossroads! Every time I go into Crossroads, I find a pair of on-trend boots, gently used and affordably priced. Recycled shopping lets you try the latest trends without putting a huge dent in your wallet.

Take a look at the hottest fall boots this year!

 

Wild West

With a sophisticated update for 2018, the Western trend has dominated runways and now retail stores. The trendiest fall uniform will consist of cropped denim and Western ankle boots. Catch up on last week’s blog post for other ways to wear the Western trend!

 

Animal Print

Just as the Western trend has returned, so has animal print. Grab a pair of snakeskin or leopard print boots, and pair them with a simple outfit to make them the star.

 

White Boots

There’s no need to put away your favorite white summer booties; they’ll still be your go-to boots to pair with your denim and chunky knits this fall!

 

Tall Boots

…Because how else are we going to transition our dresses from summer to fall? Layer up and finish your fall outfit with a pair of tall boots.

 

Block Heels

These boots were made for walking! Chunky, block heeled boots will be your best friend this fall.

 

Kitten Heels

Alternatively, kitten heels are still holding their own this season. You’ll notice that all of the above trends will come in block and kitten heel form.

August 14th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 3 Summer Trends to Take Into Fall

Summer may be coming to an end sooner than we want, but that doesn’t mean that your favorite fashion trends have to be stashed away in the back of your closet until next year. Fall is all about layering and transitional dressing, meaning it’s easier than ever to get the most out of your summer wardrobe.

Here are three summer trends you can take into the fall season, plus how to style them for the cooler weather!

 

1. Silky Slip Skirts and Dresses

Top your silky slip with a chunky knit sweater and a great pair of boots, and you’ll have a new go-to outfit this fall!

 

2. Neon Colors

The weather may be a bit more dreary in the fall, but that doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be. From sweaters to accessories and makeup, don’t be afraid to bring your favorite bright and bold neon colors into fall.

 

3. Breezy White Dresses

Breaking the rule of not wearing white after Labor Day has become almost expected—fall and winter whites are now a wardrobe staple! Layer up your favorite white summer dresses, or look for a white dress with full, exaggerated sleeves and finish it with a pair of your favorite sneakers or booties.

If you’re looking for a statement piece that will elevate any outfit, go for a leopard print coat or cardigan! Toss it over a white tee and some blue jeans—you’ll be good to go in no time at all.

 

Not ready to wear head-to-toe leopard? Reach for a printed clutch instead.

 

Follow Caitlin’s lead and wear a leopard wrap skirt with black accent pieces.

 

We already know that neutral colors work well with leopard, but when was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone and paired it with a pop of color? Try styling it with forest green, mustard yellow, or red for starters!

 

Yes, it’s true: leopard print boots will dress up even the most casual of looks!

 

Keep your outfit simple and effortless with a breezy leopard print dress. It’s hard to go wrong with this choice.
