September 25th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Style Guide: How to Wear Khaki for Fall

Khaki has been slowly gaining momentum over the past year, becoming a must-have staple for fall. The fabric—once relegated to school and work uniforms—has gotten a contemporary update and been spotted on street style stars, celebs, and fashion influencers. Perhaps you’ve even bought a khaki piece for yourself in recent months.

Dressier than denim yet perfectly casual for everyday wear, this fabric instantly updates an outfit. The key is to pair it with neutrals and keep it simple. Take a look at five chic ways to wear khaki for fall!

 

1. High Waist, Wide Leg

The stiff fabric works well in a high waist, wide leg silhouette.

 

2. Second Layer

Khaki is the ideal weight for a second layer while transitioning into chilly fall weather.

 

3. Button-Up Blouse

A khaki button-up paired with neutral bottoms is perfect for a casual chic weekend look.

 

4. Make It a Midi

Update your skirt collection with a khaki midi. Pair with a simple tee and sneakers for a relaxed brunch-to-drinks look.

 

5. A Chic Jumpsuit

A khaki jumpsuit is the ultimate fall one-piece. Layer with a lightweight turtleneck and a cardigan or jacket when the temperature drops.

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.
