They snuck up on us out of nowhere, and now stores like Topshop, Zara, and ASOS are carrying them. Long shorts for women are officially trending! Arguably the most “unflattering” trend we’ve seen all year, longline or bermuda shorts hit right above the knee line, typically have a looser fit, and have previously been designated an “unfashionable” item… but I kind of love them. I’ve never been a shorts wearer; I don’t know if it’s because of the styles and fits I’ve chosen to try on over the years, but they’ve never felt comfortable enough or sat in the right place when I walked. I know there are so many other ladies out there who have fit issues too and know how unbearable that makes shopping for shorts.
Personally, I will always encourage a trend that breaks the norm and provides an option so totally different from 99% of what’s been available. What fun is fashion if we don’t play dress up every once in a while? After seeing some of my favorite fashion babes rocking longer shorts, I am so very tempted to run out and grab a pair!
Denim Never Fails
Keep it clean and pair long denim shorts with a white blouse and a simple trendy straw bag.
Stripes on stripes are a perfectly summery way to style your long shorts—and a cute pup is the perfect accessory!
Keep cool in summer whites and sneakers!
For The Office
If you work in a traditional office, shorts are hardly appropriate… but long shorts may be the exception. I’m loving a good shorts suit for the summer!
High waist, linen, and belted—the perfect way to wear long shorts on vacation, and an effortless way to ease into the trend!
Hey guys, Mary Elizabeth here sharing yet another favorite Crossroads find and how I style it. This week is all about my favorite “neutral”: cheetah print. (Shhh, don’t tell leopard!) I affectionately call it “khaki of the jungle.” In my opinion, it looks great with everything and really bumps up the glam factor.
I picked up this DVF number at the Melrose in Hollywood location. I immediately wanted it, but I was also prepared for a not-so-flattering look, especially on a girl with very round hips. The thing is, DVF knows cut—and it was very obvious in the dressing room that this is an expensive, well-made piece that hugs in just the right places!
With western influences coming in strong for spring and summer 2018, I paired my skirt with a vintage cowboy hat and fringe cardigan. My sleeveless mock neck is Vince, courtesy of Crossroads in Silver Lake. To finish my outfit, I added a classic espadrille in modern monochrome black and a pair of cat-eye shades.
Go ahead: be a stunner in any of these three pieces—just in time for the summer heat!

When you’re on a limited budget, replenishing your closet each season can be difficult, which is one of the many reasons why I love thrifting and going to Crossroads to fulfill my seasonal, trendy wardrobe cravings (Bring on the summer pieces). You may love a trend one day, but as the honeymoon phase of new clothing wears off, you may find yourself pushing it aside for some of your more classic staples. Why pay full price for something that you may not love forever?
Enter secondhand shopping. Check out 5 summer pieces I’ll be looking for at Crossroads.
Last week I shared my favorite midi dresses for this summer, and I hope it inspires you to find your favorite.
My wardrobe is typically full of dark, muted colors, but I’ve been embracing bright, bold colors lately. I love that I can pick up some key pieces at lower prices at Crossroads to mix into my existing wardrobe.
If you’ve considered yourself as a person who can only wear neutral or black color palettes, I’m here to tell you that adding a little extra color to your wardrobe goes a long way! Add small statement pieces in shades of sunshine yellow, red and violet, and you’ll find your outfits look more put together and curated. The best part? Chances are that you can easily recreate the looks below with pieces you already own.
Here are 6 ways to put some more color in your outfit!
