February 22nd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Crossroads Style Council Road Trip!

If you follow Crossroads on Instagram, you may have seen that the SoCal members of the Crossroads Style Council took a road trip to Santa Barbara together. We met early in the morning to drive up the beautiful coast to the Crossroads store on State Street, and we were challenged to  create an outfit in just one hour (you can see all those looks below!).

After styling up our looks (and collectively buying so many goodies!), we walked over to eat at the newly opened Smithy Kitchen + Bar, which was a hit! If you’re in the area, it’s a great place for a leisurely lunch break. After lunch, we stopped for a coffee refuel at The French Press and headed back to Los Angeles.

I had been to Santa Barbara only once before, and this trip really solidified that I am officially in love. The entire town is darling, especially the neighborhood the store is in! We would love to see you in your Crossroads neighborhood, where you eat, drink, and play! Hashtag #CrossroadsNeighborhood on Instagram to share your community with us.

Remember to hop over to the Crossroads Instagram and YouTube channel to see more from our day out!

February 21st, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Metallic Pieces to Add to Your Wardrobe

It takes creativity and courage to wear the metallic fashion trend so boldly. The key to styling metallics? Choose smaller metallic accent pieces, or style larger ones with minimalist pieces that won’t be too distracting. For a look at some expert styling, check out how our favorite fashion bloggers styled six different metallic pieces to build their cohesive, fashion-forward outfits!

A pair of metallic shoes are a fun way to add that extra bit of flair to your outfit.

 


Make the cold a little bit more bearable by picking up a metallic down coat at Crossroads!

 


Dive into the trend with a head-to-toe metallics-on-metallics combination.

 


If you want a metallic skirt to serve as the focal point of your outfit, wear it with a neutral top. If you want extra style points for creativity, pair your metallic skirt with a sheer-colored blouse!

 


However you choose to add it to your closet, wear your metallic fashion with confidence!  This winter, proudly rock a metallic coat as your favorite go-to coat.

 


Take a page out of Want Get Repeat’s style playbook and pair your metallic pants with a pop of color.

February 20th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: Bold Color Is The New Black!

We’re in the midst of this year’s New York Fashion Week, and one trend I’ve noticed while perusing all the runway, street style, and blogger photos is color. Whether you’re color blocking, mixing prints, or adding accents, look to add eye-catching color to your wardrobe this season. The brighter the better! Black and neutrals will always be in style, but this is the year of color—and I am totally on board!

Take a look at some of my favorite looks featuring the bold color trend!

Girl Boss in Blue

Bold blue is taking over, and my favorite way to wear it is in suit form, as seen on Michelle!

 

Analogous Color Blocking

Color blocking within the same color family has been a big trend, especially with red and purple hues.

 

Stripes!

Use stripes to show off your colors, from two-tone to rainbow!

 

Traffic-Stopping Red

Red is classic enough to integrate into your existing wardrobe and bold enough to make a statement.

 

Coordinate With Your Girl Gang

This is one of my favorite photos from NYFW. Even the dreary wet weather couldn’t stop these ladies from bringing out the bold color!

 

Pretty Pastels

If you usually stick to neutrals, try adding pastels into your wardrobe’s palette for a softer take on this trend.

February 16th, 2018 by Samantha Weaver Buyers’ Report: Spring Fashion Trends for 2018

We’ve just returned from WWD MAGIC where we were busy buying all the top trends for you to shop this spring! We picked out lush layers, statement sleeves, florals, denim separates, super bright colors, and neutral basics for the warm weather ahead. Take a look at some of the pieces and spring fashion trends that are inspiring the #CrossroadsNewCollection this season!

 

Florals and Yellow

It’s just not spring without florals! We love how prints are bigger and bolder this season!

 

Denim

Denim, denim, and more denim please! Denim shorts and jackets are a must come spring!

 

Bright Pops of Red

Bright cherry red will continue to dominate this season. Try an all-over red look or use it as an accent color!

 

Stripes and ’70s gym-inspired

It’s just not spring without stripes! You’ll be seeing a lot of ’70s gym-inspired tees and trousers with piping and striped accents.

Come shop the Crossroads New Collection for styles like these!

Feburary 12th, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Ways to Wear Rainbow Stripes

What’s colorful and striped all over? The newest fashion trend this season! The sophisticated rainbow stripes trend has been spotted on all of our favorite fashion bloggers, and we’re all for this statement combination. New to the look? Get started with these outfits for inspiration!

 

rainbow stripes
1. When in doubt, say yes to thick-knit sweaters and high-waisted denim.

 


2. Pair a colorful striped skirt with a plain white v-neck tee to create a cute and casual outfit that’s perfect for spring!

 


3. Break all the rules this year by mixing a rainbow stripe sweater with another bold pattern, like leopard print.

 


4. One of the easiest ways to wear the colorful stripe trend? A vertical striped dress in a flattering fit-and-flare cut.

 


5. Drape a rainbow striped scarf over your neutral-colored outfit for that coveted pop of color!

 


6. Upgrade your jeans-and-a-tee look by opting for a colorful striped sweater instead. Half-tuck your sweater to complete this easy, chic look.
