Ooh la la, we are in the swing of summer! I recently took a trip to Buffalo Exchange to shop for my top summer staple – shorts – and I’m finally ready to let the heat waves and humidity wash over me! So grab a big glass of lemonade or iced tea, kick back and relax because Buffalo makes the once-dreaded activity of shopping for shorts easy and fun!
First at Bat: Activewear
I obtained the holy grail of soft activewear shorts, Lululemons! The red color is delightfully bright and paired perfectly with a mesh activewear top I found in store! Bold colors like this are great for outdoor activities because they make you visible to others sharing the road or trail and easier to find if you get lost. Forget about the pricey Lululemon tag, these were under $25! That’s a 58% discount…. need I say more?
It’s Jort Season
The fit of jean shorts is crucial. Don’t fret if it takes a try or two, your body is original and all yours and finding the perfect shorts to compliment that is worth the time. The best part about shopping for these at Buffalo? They have a wide array of sizes and brands and styles so you can find a pair you love. I opted for a pair slightly higher than knee length and slightly longer than cut offs because I love that I can go casual with a simple tank or dress them up with a patterned blouse. The best part of these shorts? I can do cart wheels, backflips and somersaults in these without any fear.
Knock Knock! Who’s there? Hiking Wear!
Hello beautiful, comfy, soft, neutral-toned North Face hiking shorts with adjustable straps! I found these hidden in between two pairs of shorts that didn’t fit, but I made sure to look at every item on the rack so I didn’t miss anything. Pro tip – shop up and down a couple of sizes since fit varies so much by brand! And, when in doubt – try it on. Sometimes, the missing element of a piece is you! When I first saw these shorts, I thought they wouldn’t fit, but the adjustable strap made the waistline a great fit and the length was perfect for my legs.
Comfy Time with Casual Gym Shorts
Also on the rack were classic, black gym shorts with white piping. A cute and comfy alternative to bike shorts, perfect for lounging and running errands.
