March 26th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile 10 Male Fashion Influencers You Should Be Following on Instagram

Fashion has always heavily favored women’s style. It’s no wonder why; the colors, silhouettes, styles, and options that women have available to wear make it exciting and curious. But we are entering into an age where fashion is beginning to blur the lines between sexes and male fashion is becoming more daring and unique in itself. I’ve recently begun taking more and more inspiration from men’s style than ever before, from little details to complete copycat outfits, and I think woman have always done this, whether subconsciously or knowingly, for years (blazers and boyfriend jeans, anyone?!).
Take a look at 10 of my favorite male fashion influencers on Instagram and add them to your feed for a refreshing dose of daily inspiration.

Mariano Di Vaio, @marianodivaio

Mariano hails from Italy and his modern gentlemen style keeps his 6.1 million follows engaged daily. Mariano has an affinity for tailored suits, jackets, vests and is effortlessly European chic. He also shares his family life and values on Instagram.

Phil Cohen, @thepacman82

Phil Cohen isn’t a traditional influencer, he doesn’t appear in a single one of his Instagram posts. In fact, no one does. He takes the people out of fashion and lets the clothes be the center of attention and curates a feed of flat lays.

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”?

February 25th, 2019 by Samantha Furno Borrowed from the Boys

Ladies, have you ever been shopping at Crossroads and something from the men’s section totally catches your eye?! Well, this scenario regularly happens to me when I’m out shopping and truth being told; I’ve actually scored some of my most amazing #CrossroadsFinds by strolling into the men’s section! Maybe it’s the fits or the simplicity of the silhouettes, but some styles are simply better when they are borrowed from the boys! Here’s a list of five styles that I typically will venture into the men’s section to find!

Real Boyfriend Jeans

You can always shop for boyfriend jeans in the women’s section, but go ahead and give this style a run for its money by opting for a pair of real boyfriend jeans! Go ahead and cuff the hem if they are a bit too long in the in-seam and embrace the roominess because looser jeans are right on trend!

A Classic T-Shirt

The men’s section at Crossroads has quite a few racks featuring shirts of all styles and colors, so I like to skim through them for tees with bold graphics or even basics that are a bit worn in. Slightly oversized and super comfortable, men’s tees are great for loosely tucking into a pair of high-rise jeans or for tying up in a knot.

Denim Jacket

One of my latest and greatest finds from Crossroads is a men’s All Saints denim jacket! I have plenty of women’s denim jackets already, but I definitely like the more relaxed vibe that this oversized denim jacket adds to my outfits. Fun Fact: My boyfriend actually takes this #CrossroadsFind out of my closet regularly so that he can wear it for himself!

Blazer

Men’s blazers are a lot roomier and boxier in style, given the tailoring. Luckily for us ladies, menswear-inspired blazers are right on trend, so why not hunt for the real deal! I’m usually seeking blazers with a classic plaid or a window-pane pattern, but solid colored styles are a great find as well! So if you’re not seeing the style you’ve been manifesting in the women’s section, take a stroll to the other side of the store!

Button-Down Shirts

Men’s button-downs make fantastic layering pieces over a simple top, plus they are super easy to tie up in the front from classic pinstripes to cozy plaids, men’s button downs are a great style.
