MARCH 10, 2015 BY JENNIFER BEILE Round Up: Top 3 Takeaways from the 70’s Trend

Piggybacking on my last round-up post and Samantha’s latest blog post, I wanted to highlight my favorite upcoming spring trend that I purposely left out last week, so as to bring proper attention to it: the 70’s. Looks inspired by the 70’s are coming back in a big way! I’ve rounded up my 3 favorite 70’s inspired trends that are currently wearable and accessible, and can even be modernized. The best part about these trends is that they each have features that can be incorporated into styles across the board.

Romantic Bohemian

Think flowy silhouettes, light fabrics, soft colors and fun patterns! Bohemian style is all about free spirited expression and unleashing your inner goddess.

Flared Pants

A good pair of high waist, flared denim is always a wardrobe staple, and the 70’s trend is bringing the flare to the forefront of the season and introducing a new generation to the beauty of culottes and a bevy of other
statement pants.

Suede

I don’t think suede gets enough credit in the commercial fashion world– it sometimes gets a bad rap for being old or heavy. But suede can work with so many different styles–from 70’s to rocker chic–and is being brought back with a refreshing view in bright colors and modern shapes.

Each of these trends has the ability to be incorporated into your outfit in either a subtle or bold way. Which would you choose?

MARCH 3, 2015 BY JENNIFER BEILE Round Up: Best Spring 2015 Trends

Spring is only a few short weeks away, and it has recently inspired me to clean out my closet to make room for new pieces. This season is all about being playful and comfortable: fringe, relaxed fit denim, flat shoes and statement stripes–finally trends that are wearable in everyday life! Using the Crossroads Spring Selling Guide, I narrowed down a few of my favorite trends for the new season.

Fringe

Fringe is a little bit 70’s, a little bit rock and roll and a whole lot of fun! From going bold with a statement piece to adding just enough to step up your accessory game, fringe is the texture you should be on the lookout for
this season.

Relaxed Fit Denim

Give your legs a break and let them breathe this spring! Relaxed fit denim is the most comfortable trend, and it looks like it will be sticking around for
a while.

Flats

Speaking of comfort: flats are this year’s best shoe trend. Your feet will thank you while you’re rocking one of the hottest looks this year.

Statement Stripes

Stripes will never be off-trend, but they are showing up this season bolder than ever. Think colorful, bold stripes, sporty stripes and mixed pattered stripes–it’s all about being playful.

Bold Lips

And finally, a bold lip is the perfect way to bring your outfit together, no matter the time of year, style or trend. I have always loved a bright bold lip, and I am falling fast for deep, rich colors!
