Summer is in full effect here in Downtown Long Beach! With cutoffs and crop tops always in style, we are excited about other trends coming out to play. Some of our favorite trends styled here by some of our fellow Buffalos, include vibrant colored sneakers, the classic camo print, sporty joggers, colorful head wraps, detailed hardware ankle boots, fun printed graphic tees, and of course, we had to throw some vintage in the mix with the 1950s!

“TRENDS OF THE AGES” BY DAILY EMERALD

The Daily Emerald featured Buffalo Exchange in “Thrift stores speak out – past fashions are today’s trends” on July 28, 2014: “… Eugenians have created a market for vintage looks both old and new. On the gently used side, Buffalo Exchange takes eccentric outfits and contrasts selectively chosen items to showcase a taste for an aged and new-wave taste. … Janelle Derven, manager of the Eugene Buffalo Exchange … Derven notes styles that take us back to the “fit ‘n’ flare” styles from the 50s and newer “Boho Fashion” that bring forward bell bottom cuts from the 60s and 70s. “There are a lot of 90s retro pieces getting updated, too – culottes, overalls, smiley face and daisy prints – I’m not so sure about the staying power of the 90s compared to some of the more classic revived styles, but it is a fun and playful way to mix up outfits,” Derven said. …”


Portland Grunge

While Portland fashion is diverse and fun, there’s no denying that 90s grunge is influencing the fashion in our city. Take your Pendleton plaid button-up, wrap it around your waist, pair it with a daisy halter or a vintage band tee, and you have the modern day recipe for Portland grunge. You certainly won’t be able to miss all the Doc Marten’s as you glance down.

Techno Tropic

By Michael Brambila, Buffalo Exchange Berkeley

Buffalo Exchange

Summer in the bay feels a bit more tropical this year, with nods to your dad’s floral Hawaiian shirts, loose trousers, and stone wash denim. The tropic trend is updated with cool techno details like iridescent sunnies and mesh undershirts. The vibe is all about mixing super fun prints with uber cool accents.

Mid-century Vintage

By Buffalo Exchange Ventura

Buffalo Exchange

While most trends are a flash in the pan, vintage styles of the 50s and 60s have proven to stand the test of time. Universally flattering and fantastically feminine, the classic natural waist cut and flared skirt of these dresses continue to remain relevant. Unlike popular boho styles of the 70s, new wave styles of the 80s, and grunge styles of the 90s, mid-century vintage is not just a trend, but a lifestyle. Quality vintage from this era has become increasingly harder to find, because of the rise in desirability. Stop by your local Buffalo Exchange, and check out what vintage gems they have to offer!

Buffalo Exchange

The sun is shining and the heat index is rising! We have noticed a few trends sticking out above the rest in Dallas, from boho and western to 90s inspired styles. Huge and open kimono inspired blouses, vintage button ups with amazing graphics, overalls, and skater skirts are just a few of the items we cannot keep stocked. Boots continue to be a big trend through the summer months, whether it’s cowboy boots to pair with tulle skirts or fringe dresses, and Doc Martens with skater skirts or overalls. Check out a few of the fun looks we’ve seen on employees recently!

We have raised nearly $550,000 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations since 1994 through our Tokens for Bags® program, saving 10.9 million bags from polluting the environment.
