February 26th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: Men’s Spring Style Trends

We tend to focus heavily on women’s fashion because the industry seems to cater to women. Perhaps because of the sheer amount of options that are available, or accepted, for women to wear, but it’s time to concentrate on men’s fashion because it’s turning into an industry that is not only blurring the lines between gender and taking more chances but becoming more acceptable for men to experiment with different silhouettes, fabrics, colors, and accessories.
Women often take fashion inspiration from men, the menswear style has been huge this last year, and below you will see that men’s fashion has also been taking notes from women’s style and making it their own. Take a look at 5 of the top men’s spring style trends and how to wear them.

Print Mixing

Fashion is anything but subtle this year and men’s fashion is getting just as adventurous as women’s has always been. The best tip for attempting print mixing is to start small with prints in similar colors, size, and shape.

Neon

Just as in the women’s fashion realm, vibrant neon colors have made their way into men’s fashion. From show stopping to subtle pops, try adding some color to your wardrobe this season.

Textures & Fabrics

Corduroy, leather, and velvet have been taking center stage in men’s fashion and it might seem out of your comfort zone, but there are simple ways to incorporate new textures and fabrics into your wardrobe, like corduroy pants with a cotton T-shirt, or leather or velvet accents on a shirt.

Dad Jeans

Light wash, relaxed fitting denim might be on your radar this season. Much like the ever loved, sometimes controversial “mom jeans”, you may find yourself scrounging through your dad’s old denim this season.

Socks

Men, it’s time to show off a little sock! Men’s socks are typically resigned to no-show or tall dress sock, but this season is all about showing off the sock in a low cut, quarter length. Dare I say, the “dad sock”?

December 14th, 2016 by Julius Adorsu Winter Styling & Photo Shoot with Julius Adorsu

This year will be my first winter in SoCal and I must say I’m looking forward to more brisk mornings and warm sunny afternoons. Being from the Midwest, I’d normally be bundled up this time of the year—all function over fashion! To take advantage of the best of both worlds, I’m styling two fashionable yet completely functional looks for winter.

I had the honor of styling the very talented artist Emmitt James for a photo shoot accompanying his new project The Feel Good Tape. Using clothing items purchased from Crossroads, both looks were put together for less than $60.

Distressed denim became the trendy must-have item for your closet this year. If you live in a warm state, don’t put them away just yet! Easily paired with a simple shirt and sneakers for a classic look, all I needed to add was a statement piece to get that winter street style feel.

Jump into winter with statement items that stand strong on their own and that can be paired with almost any item in your wardrobe. This Zara tweed jacket will keep you warm and turn heads. It’s light enough for a nice evening out and big enough to fit a sweater underneath for an added layer.

Look 2

People underestimate how cold it gets during California nights, especially when it’s not summer! This next look is cozy yet stylish and perfect for nice evening out on the town.

Mixing patterns can be daunting, but it just takes a little bit of balance. These bold prints were paired with a simple white blazer and white Florsheim dress shoes, all found at Crossroads!
