Cream of The Crop: How to Style Capri Pants

By Aarian, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Nowadays, there’s no shortage of pants for women – we’ve got skinny legs and wide legs, pleats and palazzos, cargo and disco – the list goes on and on! However, one of the most undersung styles is the capri. Also known as pedal pushers, these cropped pants are one of the many trends from the early 2000s making a major comeback this year. For everyone out there who may be hesitant to try this trend, we’ve got a few different ways to style capri pants!

Cargo and Capri Pants: A Love Story

For a sporty daytime look, we styled these khaki cargo capri pants (cargo is another trend to look out for this season!) with a printed crop top and illustrated coach’s jacket. Finish the outfit off with a pair of velvet loafers in a matching shade of royal blue for a look that’s casual but still perfectly put together.

That’s a Wrap: Tie Waists

If you’re new to mixing patterns, we suggest matching your main pieces with the same color – here, we mixed a striped pair of mustard and hunter green tie-waist capri pants with a polka-dotted wrap blouse in the same hunter green. Become a pattern mixing pro by topping off with a subtle snakeprint mule!

Power Clashing Capri Pants

Are you ready to take your capri pants to the next level? Plaid pants with a ruffled hem will do the trick! Go bold with an abstract cheetah print blouse and tortoise shell flats – the key is to keep your colors neutral and accessories minimal. This look isn’t busy – it means business!

Buffalo Exchange, HQ, Capri Pants, Cranberry

Turn Up The Volume!

Capri pants come in all different shapes and drama is the name of the game with these culottes! A wide leg, simple pleat and rich cranberry color are exactly what you need for a fantastic cool-weather look. A long sleeve striped blouse with a smocked waist plays up the volume of the pant and a cheetah print ankle bootie balances the whole look.

Buffalo Exchange, HQ, Capri Pants, Blazer and Jeans

Capri It Simple

Rounding out our capri countdown, we have a pair of cropped blue jeans! These jeans are sure to replace your go-to cuffed jeans, with an exciting asymmetrical fringed hemline. For a pop of color, a ‘70s botanical blouse pairs perfectly with maroon loafers and a timeless navy blazer.

As you can see, capri pants are an excellent option for staying stylish through the occasionally unpredictable temperatures of autumn when paired with smart layers and trendy footwear. Feeling inspired? Recreate these looks and find everything else you need for your fall wardrobe at your local Buffalo Exchange!

Buffalo Exchange Easy Halloween Costumes

Easy Halloween Costumes That You Can Create Last-Minute

By Savy, Buffalo Exchange HQ

I don’t know about you, but even though Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I am almost never prepared! Every year, I have to throw together something at the last minute. So this year, I decided to test my skills to see how many easy Halloween costumes I could come up with. You can throw these costumes together with items already have in your closet or with a quick shopping trip to Buffalo Exchange!

Buffalo Exchange Easy Halloween Costumes Wacky Tourist Hawaiian Shirt Visor Birkenstocks

Wacky Tourist

If you’ve ever been to Disney or a crowded boardwalk on the beach, you might be familiar with this get-up. You can pull together a Wacky Tourist Halloween costume in minutes. All you need is a brightly colored Hawaiian shirt, sandals and some sun protection (sunglasses and a visor/hat). Add a glob of sunscreen on your nose to top it all off! If you live in a colder locale, just swap the shorts for pants and add socks with your sandals. Major bonus: I will totally wear most of these items again next summer (albeit maybe not all at once).

Buffalo Exchange Easy Halloween Costumes Sandy Grease

Still Looking For an Easy Halloween Costumes? You Better Shape Up!

Who doesn’t love Grease? And how about Sandy’s totally rockin’ greaser look? You can quickly throw together this costume with clothing from your own closet or stock up at Buffalo Exchange. Classic items like these work all year round, so if you’re trying to avoid spending money on a costume you’ll only wear once, this is the way to go!

Buffalo Exchange Decades Fashion

Decades Fashion: Styling My Way Through the Past 100 Years

By Juan, Buffalo Outlet Nogales

Hello everyone! I’m Juan and I’m a cashier at the Buffalo Outlet in Nogales, Arizona. I believe that life is all about appreciating the past while embracing the present and looking forward to the future. And that’s especially true when it comes to fashion. Personally, I find that my style tends to gravitate towards decades fashion with a modern touch – and I seek inspiration from every era. Read ahead to see how I style my way through my favorite decades!

Buffalo Exchange Decades Fashion 1920s

The 1920s through 1940s: A Time for Functionality

When we think of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, we often think of the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood and stars of the silver screen. On the other hand, function and practicality were the priorities for most people during this period and many fashions from the period reflect this: neutral colors and durable pieces made of denim, wool and leather were used in clothing meant to withstand the test of time. For my 1920s decades fashion look, I accessorized with popular pieces of the time like a newsboy cap and a messenger bag.
