This year, we’ve been reliving all our favorite 90s trends and loving it. Whether it’s classic 90s pop culture like Betty Boop (boop-oop-a-doop!), flame prints or flannel, we just can’t get enough! Buffalo Exchange employee Jessie Whitehouse feels the same way – read on for her take on the 90s.

Kick Back With Your Favorite 90s Trends

When I think 90s trends, the first things that come to mind are grunge, flannels and Dr. Martens. Try pairing your Docs with a flannel for a classic look or go Drew Barrymore’s route and style them with a floral dress. Jessie gave this throwback trend a modern spin with a sweatshirt-flannel combo that’s fastened together by metal hardware. Pretty 90s punk rock if you ask me!

Keep It Or Sell It

Shopping is easy, but deciding what to keep and what to sell when your closet’s feeling a little overstuffed? Not so much. Unless you have a good friend over to help you decide! Follow along as Aarian helps Amelia clean out her closet and find things to sell at Buffalo Exchange – from cute jeans that just don’t quite fit to a pair of shoes she only wore once. (Plus, stay tuned for a cameo by Amelia’s cat Marge!)


Mad About Plaid: One Trend Worn Three Ways

By Aarian Frye, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Hello all! For me, fall and winter are the best seasons of the year. They have the best holidays (Halloween and Thanksgiving!), basketball season starts up (Go Phoenix Suns!), it’s my birthday (November!) and the air cools down (you can walk outside here in Tucson without melting into a puddle)! To my last point, cooler weather brings so many new fashion options. I love to layer my clothing and there’s no better time to experiment with trends. This week, I paid a visit to Buffalo Exchange Tucson to search for plaid in its many forms: gingham, tartan and more! Read ahead to check out all the pieces I found and how I styled plaid three different ways.

For my first look, I experimented with a punk rock vibe and mixed two distinct patterns at once: Madras and Glen plaid. Named for its origin city of Madras, India (now Chennai), Madras plaid is recognized by its widely variable color combos and checkboard pattern – and this denim jacket does not fall short of that description! I paired it with a more subtle gray Glen Plaid (hailing from Scotland) and a mustard-yellow velvet mock neck.
