Dinner is Served: Fresh Thanksgiving Outfits for Every Potluck

By Aarian, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Hello, Buffaloes! If you read my blog about how much I love plaid, you know that one of my favorite holidays is fast approaching: Thanksgiving! As a verified overthinker and certified procrastinator, I understand that coming up with a look for Halloween may have sent you into a tizzy and now you’re stressin’ about what to wear over the week of family reunions and friendsgivings ahead – fret not, because I am here to help. Naturally, as any secondhand fashionista would, I shopped at my neighborhood Buffalo Exchange and came up with five different Thanksgiving outfits that will work for almost any occasion. Couch surfing at your family’s home? Covered. Friendsgiving chic? Got it. Meeting you significant other’s ‘rents? Nailed it! Read ahead for tips and tricks to copy this Thanksgiving – it’s easy as pie!

Game On! Thanksgiving Outfits Made for Comfort

There’s nothing quite like going home for the holidays. If you’re staying with the ‘rents during the long weekend, it’s definitely tempting to traipse down the hall in the sweatpants you slept in for Thanksgiving dinner (no judgement – we’ve all been there). To combat the alluring draw of comfort-over-all, pair a velvet T-shirt dress with your favorite pair of sneakers and a fuzzy cardigan, topping off the look with a matching beret. With this outfit, you’ll look put-together for your family photos with all the comfort of being wrapped up burrito-style in bed.

Let’s Leo-party!

If you’re like me, you’re the dramatic friend. You know, the one who visits once a year to regale everyone with tales of what it’s like to live in a moderately larger city with two large bags of luggage in tow (def more stuff than necessary for a four-day trip). For my fellow drama queens, this look is for you! After feasting with your family, fight the urge to take a nap and catch up with the hometown folks you didn’t see at dinner in an attention-grabbing leopard print romper and floral blazer! The pattern mixing works because of the neutral color palette and the leopard print totally hides the mashed potatoes you dribbled on yourself earlier. WIN-WIN!

Gather Around for Gathered Sleeves

Let’s be real: Thanksgiving dinner is really Thanksgiving lunch. If you’re one of the few people that can hold out until a proper dinner time, let’s say 6 o‘clock, then 1) I commend you and 2) This evening look is for you. Here, I layered a faux-corset that has contrast stitching over a hunter green T-shirt with gathered sleeves. I don’t know about you, but I’m still loving sleeve details with various ties, puffs and cuffs. A plaid accordion-pleat polishes off the look but leaves plenty of room for late-night seconds (or thirds). Definitely one of my favorite Thanksgiving outfits!

Hot Turkey Tamale

If you’re looking for one of those Thanksgiving outfits that’ll show your fellow dinner guests (many of whom you see just a few times a year) you’ve got it all figured out and WEREN’T totally thinking about sweatpants to dinner, a blazer and skirt combo is the way to go. Brown suede compliments the cheery holiday red top and the silver grommet fastening draws attention to your square-toed silver block heels. Who looks like they read the New York Times instead of just scrolling through Twitter? You do, girl!

Meet the Parents: Holiday Edition

Cuffing season is here! You made it through a summer of singledom, met someone special and now it’s time to meet their parents. As far as Thanksgiving outfits go, you’ll probably want to air on the side of caution and go with something classic (read: not a sequin jumpsuit). Make a great first impression in a vintage-inspired paisley dress with flutter sleeves and simple pumps. Compliment the high collar with your favorite good-luck charm necklace and top it off with a camel-colored beret. Whip up a side dish (or pick up a premade one – no judgement!) and you’ll be the best guest ever!

Feeling stuffed with inspiration for Thanksgiving outfits? If I can talk turkey with you, it’s time to run down to your local Buffalo Exchange and shop for your look! Whatever event you’ll be attending, I can guarantee that they’ve got just the thing you need. Thanks for reading and have a happy Thanksgiving!

Winter is coming. If you find yourself at a loss over what to wear to combat the dropping temperatures and increasingly gray days, fret not: Buffalo Exchange is here to help! During a trip to Buffalo Exchange Tucson, I styled four different outfits perfect for beating the winter style blues.

Buffalo Exchange, HQ, Winter Style, Grid Jumpsuit

Lattice in Wonderland

For my first winter style look, I went with a timeless duo-chromatic color palette. I paired this gridded jumpsuit with a white turtleneck, topping the look off with the jacket du jour – a cropped trucker with contrast stitching. This jacket is the perfect layering piece because it provides warmth without bulk. To take my coordination to the next level, I finished the look with a mod-inspired handbag that has the same vertical split as the jumpsuit!

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!

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!
