Summer Style 2014

Welcome to Summer!

I’ve been enjoying free screenings (I even got to attend the NY Premiere of Edge of Tomorrow, with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in attendance!), BBQs, potlucks, blockbuster movies, outdoor on location photo shoots, World Science Festival at Washington Square Park, Farmer’s Market and some great dinners out… All in fashionable style!

Some of my favorite women’s summer wear styles are full skirts, lace, aqua, biker jackets, skater skirts, florals and bright colors. And on men: Nautical stripes, white, chambray, messenger bags and fitted blazers.

One of my all time prettiest shirts is a pop of mint green color in lace, which I like to wear accented with a bright pink flower.


Then there’s aqua blue, that beautiful color between green + blue really stands out!


Another great summer trend is bright colors. This hot pink top really dresses up the black full skirt.


And of course, floral print which can be paired with biker jacket when it gets a bit nippy on those summer evenings out!

Below is an infographic of Summer 2014 style trends for women and men, provided by one of my favorite recycled clothing stores, Crossroads Trading Company!

Crossroads Trading Company


My favorite gently used clothing store is a California-based one, called Crossroads Trading Company, so imagine my surprise and delight when I heard that one opened in NYC in the Flatiron District. I also found out that there is one in Brooklyn, which in the back of my head I knew but never really frequented.

Crossroads carries some of the hottest brands, such as:

  • Gucci
  • Alice + Olivia
  • Zac Posen
  • Elizabeth and James
  • Helmut Lang
  • J Brand
  • All Saints
  • Zara

During my first visit to the NYC store, I picked out some real gems. The first was a Worthington shiny-nude colored long skirt, with an overlay of pale peachy pink-gold colored lace in filmy material. This skirt was a steal at $8.50.


I also snagged a Zara blue striped wrap shirt and a Pleione white chiffon button down with a black sequin collar (from Nordstrom Rack). They were $13.50 and $12.50 respectively.


I also tried on a super cute white and grey fur sleeveless jacket with tan trim and button details, but ended up not buying it for practicality’s sake.


Take a shopping trip to Crossroads Trading Company, or bring in your fashionable spring-wardrobe items that you want to get rid of, and see if you can make some money. I promise, you will not be disappointed!
