Harley Davidson T-shirts are the ultimate staple item for that 90s biker grunge look. Pair them with a leather mini skirt, worn-in denim cutoffs or the perfect pair of overalls and you have an easy day-off uniform.

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!

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.

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!
