March 19th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: How to Pull Off the Neon Trend

Now that the weather has begun to heat up, it’s time to talk about the hottest and more daring trend of the season: neon. I’ve typically shied away from vibrant and saturated colors, but in the last year,  I have found myself experimenting with more colors that I’ve probably worn in my life; From neutrals to pastels and neon! Adding bold colors can have an empowering effect and wearing it with confidence will boost your mood and prevent you from feeling like a fluorescent highlighter.

Be Subtly Brazen

Subtle neon details and accents are an easy way to test the waters of the loud color trend.

Pair With Muted Shades

Tone down the volume of a neon piece by pairing it with a neutral, muted color like beige or brown.

Bold Basics

Incorporate neon into your staple outfits with basic pieces, such as tees or pullovers, excluding print if it’s too loud for you.

Dare to go Head to Toe

Feeling especially vivacious? Combine complementary neon colors into one outfit for a head turning look.

Focus on Prints

The print of a neon piece will split the focus of the bold color and create a calmer look without erasing the excitement.

February 21st, 2018 by Jennifer Beile The New Boot Trend among Celebrities

Celebrities often set precedents for new street style trends and I always like to keep an eye out for something a little different than usual. Recently, I’ve been noticing my favorite stylish celebrities, like Gigi Hadid and Jennifer Aniston rocking combat style boots, like Dr. Martens.  On the “heels” of all the ugly shoe trends we’ve had last year (pun intended, by the way), the chunky boot is just the newest style we are seeing dominate the fashion industry that is seemingly desperate to make ugly the new desirable. While not a style shoe I would typically wear myself, recognizing and following the ebbs and flows of trends, even those I may not particularly partake in, inspires me to try similar pieces or wear things a new way. Take a look at how to replicate the newest celebrity style trend below.

Contrast Feminine Pieces

Add some edgy to your spring floral pattern and dresses with the contrast of a pair of combat boots.

February 4th, 2019 by Samantha Furno Crossroads Trend Report: Cowboy Boots

You don’t have to be a country music star or on your way to a costume party to embrace one of this season’s hottest trends: Cowboy Boots. This trend first popped up on our radar during F/W 18 fashion week, where influencers and designers alike made western footwear look a whole lot more mainstream! On the streets of NYC, trendsetters swapped out their sneakers and heels for these Americana-styled boots and designers like Isabel Marant and Coach made it clear that the Wild West was definitely having a moment (and it still is!).

If you’ve been weary of trying out the trend for yourself, don’t fret, I was too! I actually snagged my first pair of already worn in, classic, black cowboy boots on a recent shopping trip at Crossroads and I am definitely on the bandwagon with this trend! There is something fun and a little bit nostalgic about throwing on a pair of good ol’ cowboy boots with a flirty floral dress or a classic pair of vintage denim! Not fully convinced you need a pair just yet? Go ahead and check out how these fashionistas styled their boots for some major inspiration!

Contrast with Pants

Let your boots be the star of your fit, by pairing them with contrasting bottoms and a classic tee.

Boots and a Print Dress

Throw your boots on with a flirty small print dress for the perfect weekend brunch look.

Find Your Statement Boot

Make a statement with your cowboy boots this season by opting for a pair in a bold hue!

Modernize Your Pair of Boots

Opt for a more modern take on this classic western style by adding a pair with a shorter silhouette to complete your fit.
