Check Icon Analysis

A 'crossover' is the process or result of making a change from one situation, area of activity, or way of doing something, to another. Essentially, when you 'crossover' you break into another category entirely or blend two or more distinct styles. It shares some similarities with the expression 'to branch out,' and is more commonly used in a professional context.
