Spring to Summer Wardrobe Essentials

By Buffalo Exchange Boston (Somerville)

Now that it’s warm out and the full heat of summer is on the horizon, you may find yourself with a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. We took three spring/summer wardrobe essentials – overalls, lightweight pants and a bodysuit – and styled them for balmy 70-degree days and hot-hot-hot 90-degree days alike. Make your spring wardrobe work for the new season with these tips!

Overall, a Great Look

Buffalo Exchange Boston Somerville Wardrobe Essentials Overalls

First up, we went for the most popular item of the season – overalls!  For those days when the weather’s still sticking in the 70s, we layered these denim cut-off overalls over a ribbed sweater (oh hey, 90s fashion) and threw on a quilted, satin bomber from Topshop.  To amp this look up for 90-degree days, we swapped out the warmer sweater for a fun knit crop top in a bright color. Throw on some sweet shades with metallic sandals and you’re ready for summer fun!

What do you love about Florida – and Hollywood in particular?

The Hispanic community has played an essential role in my development as a human and a professional. Miami is unique: you can’t get a Cuban coffee – or “colada”, as we call it – for 75 cents anywhere else and we have the best “pastelitos” and “croquetas” in the world. In Hollywood, local shops and small businesses are really starting to take to the area and build community. I’m excited to see how it continues to grow. Hollywood also has an amazing beach that’s my go to spot to catch some waves.

Do you have any other favorite spots to visit in the Hollywood area?

Besides Buffalo Exchange and the beach, Hollywood is home to the Yellow Green Farmers Market. Many of us Miamians drive up to visit. It’s only open Saturday and Sunday, but they have incredible finds and lots of vegan options for people like me who eat a plant-based diet.
