April 11th, 2016 by Melanie Sutrathada 4 Gorgeous Festival Hairstyles

Festival season is officially upon us, and whether you’re headed to Coachella or watching from home, you’ll want a hairstyle that’s both gorgeous and functional. Chances are, you’ll be dancing and sweating up a storm, so effortless beauty is a must when considering festival hairstyles!

Here are my favorite ways to style your hair for the season’s music festivals.

1. The Messy Braidfestival hairstyles
Throw together a traditional French braid and gently loosen up your strands before securing your ‘do with a clear elastic. For extra texture, spray a dry shampoo into your roots and massage it in with your fingers. This is one of my favorite styles to master for a long weekend!

2. The Half Updofestival hairstyles
Feature full waves and tons of volume while keeping your hair out of your face by pulling the top half of your hair back.

3. The Milkmaid BraidP3-Milkmaid-Braid

Looking to keep your hair off your face and your neck? The milkmaid braid is perfect for sweaty weather.

4. The TopknotP4-Top-Knot
Go uber chic and sophisticated with a sleek bun at the very top of your head, or go relaxed and effortless with a loose and messy topknot. Either way, you can’t go wrong!

February 19th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver WWD MAGIC 2016: What We Bought

Our buying team just returned from WWD MAGIC, and we can’t wait to reveal this year’s new and returning trends for spring and summer 2016. We shopped and walked (6.86 miles in one day, according to my Fitbit) and shopped some more to fill our stores with everything from festival wear to edgy activewear.

So what are some of the new trends to look forward to at Crossroads this summer? Western-inspired pieces like red bandanas, braided denim detailing and structured hats were a big surprise—and a big hit! If the whole prairie look is going a little too far for you, there was a lot of carry-over from 2015, including ’70s-inspired bottoms, bohemian silhouettes, and safari color stories.

Take a look at some of the styles and décor that inspired us at WWD MAGIC 2016!

We’re so excited about our selling guide that we’ve created looks to showcase our favorite spring trends using this week’s new arrivals.

’70s InspiredThis spring, look for ’70s inspiration in a printed jumpsuit like our Abstract Print Culottes Jumpsuit ($35). Add a beaded belt and, of course, a fedora ($35).

Stripes + Tote Bags
Stripes will always be a major player in spring fashion. This season, try wearing stripes on stripes—and don’t forget your favorite tote bag!

 Polka Dots + Mini Bags!
Once you put on our Drawstring Polka Dot Dress ($38.50), you’ll be sold. Featuring an oversized fit and midi length, this super comfy dress is a must-have. Just add a bright mini-bag to finish the look.

Romantic + Mules
Our Romantic Lace Dress ($38.50) has been getting a lot of attention on our Instagram page this week, and it’s easy to see why. Finish the look with a pair of pastel mules.

Off the Shoulder + Athletic Shoes
Two of my favorite trends this season all in one! I’ve been gushing all week about the new pair of sneakers I picked up at our newest store in Boulder, CO, and I love how they pair with our Off the Shoulder Mini Dress ($17.50).

Shop these pieces in stores this coming week!

 

APRIL 22, 2015 BY JENNIFER BEILE Round Up: Coachella Style, Part Deux

We’re going back to Coachella once more! If you were unable to make it to the desert festival this year, you are either reveling in the Coachella photos and write-ups or have disappeared from social media to take a breather from it all. Luckily for you, I am in the former group and I’m still soaking up the festival fashion from this year.

Take another peak below at part deux of my favorite Coachella looks, courtesy of Instagram!
