January 19th, 2018 by Samantha Weaver New Arrivals: Spring Essentials You Can Wear in Winter

With just two weeks to go until Crossroads stores start buying for spring, we’re finding ways to sneak our spring favorites into our winter wardrobes. Warmer weather just can’t come soon enough, so we’re turning to florals, stripes and lighter knits to carry us through the end of our winter rut. Take a look at some of our early spring releases—available at all locations this weekend!

 

A Frilly Floral Dress

 

Nothing says springtime like a floral print. Our Flounce Sleeve Floral Dress ($35) pairs easily with tights and boots for now, and will look just as good with a nude strappy sandal in the warmer months!

 

A Knit Midi Dress

This is one of our favorite transitional pieces. Our Knit Belted Midi Dress ($30) will be a staple in our closets from February through May.

 

A Striped Shirt

This may be a year-round trend, but it’s absolutely tops come spring. Our Tie-Sleeve Striped Blouse ($26.50) is a step up from a classic button-down.

 

A Tie Dye Blouse

Tie dye in spring, you say? Sure, why not! Previously reserved for summer fests worldwide, this classic print has been updated with our Mineral Dyed Blouse ($26.50)

January 5th, 2018 by Samantha Weaver How to Wear Sequins After New Year’s Eve

It’s a bummer to buy a new party outfit that you love but have no clue how to work into your regular wardrobe. New Year’s is one of those nights we buy a one-night-only look for that never sees the light of day again. Well, no more! We’re repurposing our sequins with these five looks—and urge you to unleash your New Year’s shimmer onto the light of day!

 

Sequin Mini Skirt

Add a neutral colored sweater and Herschel hip bag to completely transform this party skirt for everyday.

 

Studded Velvet Blazer

We styled this fancy blazer with gold trousers and classic Vans—perfect for a Friday at the office!

 

Sequin Mini Dress

Just layer your sequins over any solid top or sweater, add a structured bag, and voila!—a completely new look.

 

Shiny Palazzo Pants

Kick up the shine by adding a shiny cardigan to your shimmery pants, then finish off the look with a waxed hip-bag!

 

Vintage Sequin Blouse

This is the vintage sequin blouse I wore this New Year’s Eve, and I’m looking forward to giving it new life! I’ve paired it with my Zara printed trousers, Everlane ballet heels, and a bright red crossbody purse.

How do you plan to repurpose your New Year’s sequins?

December 22nd, 2017 by Samantha Weaver Plaid: Hands Down, Our Favorite Holiday Season Print!

This holiday season, we’re reaching into our closets for a classic print that simply screams HOLIDAY. You guessed it—that print is PLAID. We’ve rounded up our favorite super-festive looks that are sure to motivate you to wear this classic print for the holidays!

A tartan dress with a cutout back? Yes please! This all-plaid look is at the top of our list!

 

Gold accessories and a bright red tote brings this uber-holiday look together.

 

A red sweater + a plaid mini skirt = effortless holiday style!

 

Here’s a sampling of some plaids, buffalo checks and grid prints available at Crossroads! Which pieces suit your style best?

 

Plaid is just one of those classic prints that makes it’s way into almost every guy’s closet. If you haven’t tried a buffalo check bomber coat yet, we highly recommend this mountain-man upgrade!

 

Every guy needs a plaid flannel—or two or three! Shop plaid long-sleeve shirts like these J. Crew pieces at Crossroads today!

 

We’ll be wearing our plaid next week, and we hope to see what looks you wear as well! Be sure to share it with us by tagging us @crossroadstrading!
