Fall Trends: Feeling Fit

Rolling out of bed and heading to class has never been easier. This season, we’re all about track pants, track jackets, retro sneakers (how about these old-school Air Jordans?!)  and classic athletic logo tees. These looks are the 90s all over again and we couldn’t be happier about it. Fair warning, though: if you often use the excuse of, “I forgot my gym clothes at home,” you’re out of luck. Welcome to the fittest fall yet!

Paa Tee moved to Pittsburgh from Ghana a few years ago. He is always on the prowl for the latest fashion and his dapper take on street style is inspired by his hometown of Accra, Ghana (the capital city) and US hip-hop. His biggest influences include Kanye West, Luce, A$AP Rocky and Pharrell Williams.

I always get great finds for great prices. I also love that Buffalo Exchange is community-driven and dedicated to giving back.

Anna Maleeva is a Russian-American fashion blogger. Her obsession with shoes, bright colors and prints has taken her to the forefront of the Pittsburgh style scene. When it comes to personal fashion, she loves trying new things and taking risks and often builds her outfits from the ground up –starting with her shoes!

Why do you like shopping at Buffalo Exchange?

I love resale shopping because you never know what you will find – a lot of unique items that aren’t in stores anymore or, if they are in stores, the price doesn’t break the bank.

Any style advice for others?

BE YOURSELF, wear what you like, be creative. Don’t take fashion too seriously – have fun with it!

Perhaps the most exciting part of working for Buffalo Exchange is the thrill of the buy counter. Our inventory is constantly changing and we get to see a wide variety of clothing brands and styles EVERY SINGLE DAY. The Buffalo Exchange Pittsburgh store is no exception to this rule: since we first opened our doors a year and a half ago, we’ve built strong relationships with regular sellers to keep exciting pieces coming through our doors.

Buffalo Exchange Albuquerque Summer Packing List

Summer Packing List

By Buffalo Exchange Albuquerque

Packing for summer vacation can be a daunting task. You want to look your best for whatever activity comes your way. Sightseeing, fancy dinners, outdoor adventures, lying on a beach and indulging in new and delicious foods come to mind. It’s all too easy to go overboard and try to bring everything in your closet, ‘just in case.’ Luckily, you don’t have to bring your entire wardrobe on vacay in order to look amazing. With this summer packing list, you’ll find yourself looking fantastic with room in your luggage to spare!

Get Back to Basics

One of the simplest ways to eliminate bulk in your baggage is to bring staple pieces that all work together. When an item can be worn in a variety of ways, you save space and expand your options. For your bottoms, start with a great pair of denim, a cute skirt and the perfect summer short. Now, pull out some great tees that work with all your bottoms. Solid colors are easier to match, but throw in a pattern or two to add a little fun. Pick light-colored natural fabrics because they are easier to wear in hot climates and help protect you from the sun. Cotton-poly blends are best since they also don’t wrinkle in your suitcase.

Buffalo Exchange Lit Looks

Summer Outfits: Looks that are Lit

By Monica Eckhoff, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Flames are lighting up the streets this summer! This season’s flame trend is a fun take on the 90s. We’ve styled our favorite versions of the trend into a few different summer outfits so that, no matter your style, you can find a way to rock this classic 90s look. Best of all, when the weather cools down, you can keep your style hot by layering these looks with tights, boots and jackets.

That’s My Vibe

Buffalo Exchange Vibe

This look is an easy option for summer. Pair your flame tee with a denim overall romper and this year’s footwear du jour – crisp white sneakers. Throw on a fanny pack and some sunnies and you’re ready to go!

Buffalo Exchange Men's Vibe

If you basically live in athletic pants, this is the perfect summer outfit. We love the sporty vibe of this T-shirt’s mesh sleeves. Paired with a matching set of holographic shoes and a hat, you’re sure to set your summer style on fire.

Made popular by Hollywood stars like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, gingham has been around forever and we’ve been seeing it come back strong this summer. And it’s no longer for just picnic baskets! From playsuits and dresses to blouses and tees, gingham is everywhere with its adorably retro vibes. Match it with your favorite pair of espadrilles, Vans or even Doc Martens! For summer, wear it with jean shorts. Then, when fall comes around, wear it with dark wash denim for a completely different look.

Statement Earrings

This summer, the secret to taking any outfit from average to awesome is statement earrings. Big, bold and beautiful, tassel earrings can be found everywhere this season – and for good reason! They are an easy way to add some pop to your summer wardrobe halfway through the season and draw attention toward your beautiful face. Be sure to pick up a pair at your local Buffalo Exchange and up your summer style game!
