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.
Pit stop turned photoshoot!

Our shopping trip and style challenge was a success!
I had so much fun with these ladies and I cannot wait until our next adventure!
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!
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!
Take a page out of Want Get Repeat’s style playbook and pair your metallic pants with a pop of color.
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.
Use stripes to show off your colors, from two-tone to rainbow!
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!
If you usually stick to neutrals, try adding pastels into your wardrobe’s palette for a softer take on this trend.
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, 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!
