Winter Outfits We Love: Cold-Weather Trends to Put on Your Wishlist

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Winter style, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways! Whether it’s oversized jackets or cozy fabrics like chunky rib knits and teddy bear fur, we wait all year for the opportunity to layer up our winter outfits. This season, we’re particularly gaga for fun pops of plaid, metallic, pearl and more!

Don’t Get Mad – Get Plaid!

Plaid has long been a staple of winter outfits, but it’s often limited to flannel button-ups and scarves. With the 90s revival going strong right now, checkered prints are popping up all over the place – and we’re not plaid about it! We love them on pants, blazers, overalls and, of course, classic 90s skirts. Fun fact: did you know that plaid originated in Scotland and was first known as “tartan”?

Sell By Mail’s Favorite Fall Fashion Trends

Here at Sell By Mail, there is one thing we can all agree on – we just can’t wait for fall! When we’re gazing at a saguaro cactus on an 80 degree November day (we’re based out of the Southern Arizona desert, go figure), it feels like crisp fall weather will never truly be here. So, while we wait, we’ve been poring over fashion mags and scouting our favorite stores to put together a wish list of our favorite fall fashion trends. Here are some of the men’s and women’s cool-weather styles that we’ve been dreaming of lately.

Denim Everything

If you’re all about denim, you’re in luck this season! Whether you’re rocking the workwear inspiration or feeling a So-Cal skater vibe, pair classic trucker jackets and bombers with slim straight jeans in every wash under the rainbow for an updated denim-on-denim look. Bring a modern feel to basic pieces with patches or distressing and don’t forget to look for denim in unexpected places – like shoes, for example!

Fall Fashion Trends That Are Anything But “Basic”

You don’t have to dress like you‘re sitting in the front row at Fashion Week to have some serious style. One of our favorite fall fashion trends is (drum roll, please)… basics! It’s time to have fun with your fashion standbys. Punch up the style factor of your jeans and tee combo with a retro-inspired or authentic vintage graphic tee. Add some pop to your classic button-down with an all-over print. There are endless ways to keep your style fresh without piling on the trends.

New Fall “Neutrals”

While some people hear “neutral” and think “boring,” a rich palette of fall tones is anything but dull! Neutrals are no longer limited to black, white and beige. Bright cobalt blue, timeless olive green and deep burgundy go with anything and everything and can take a simple outfit to the next level.

Pop of Color

As much as we love neutrals, sometimes you need to put some pep in your step with a little color. A tomato red sweater will definitely add fire to a monochrome outfit! Even if you’re not into brights, nothing in the color wheel is off limits this year. If you’re sick of beige, a lavender moto jacket or a millennial pink pea coat could be just what the doctor ordered.

The New Distressing

Distressed denim has been a closet staple for so long, it’s been feeling a little like denim had nowhere new to go. Luckily, the art of perfectly worn-in denim has reached new heights. One of the fall fashion trends we’ve been seeing everywhere is distressed hems – and we love them! You can rock this trend, no matter your style. There’s a level of distressing that will work for anyone, from raw hems to hi-low step hems to hems that are so distressed they have full-on fringe. Don’t write off the lived-in denim jacket just yet, though – these iconic pieces have become closet staples that pair perfectly with any style.

Bold Graphic Prints

These days, there’s a print for every style – classic or quirky, minimalist or bold. If you’re ready to go all out, then go big with a marble-inspired print in bold black and white. For a more subtle version, try an oversized plaid in a monochrome mix of soft grays. Don’t forget about lush fall florals, quirky polka dots, menswear-inspired checks, lumberjack plaids and even camo.

Fall Fashion Trends to Start Shopping For Now

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

There are hundreds of reasons to love autumn – leaves turning to bright hues of red, orange and yellow, crisp fall air, cozy fires, pumpkin spice lattes and the start of the holiday season. TBH, though, the main reason is the return of comfy clothes and all of the new fall fashion trends. From plaid to retro athletic gear to the perfect accessories, we’re already clocking our favorite looks of the season.

Plaid About It

This fall, we’re loving the return to plaid – in particular, plaid trousers for both guys and gals. This must-have print makes for looks that feel retro but also totally new. Check and mate!

Are You Over It?

Ok, so we just can’t get over the overall trend – and we’re guessing you can’t, either! They’re great for layering as you move into fall. Wear yours with booties and a cashmere turtleneck for a chic look or pair with sneakers and a sweatshirt for a more athletic take.

Buffalo Exchange Shopping on a Budget for Fall

Shopping Fall Style on a College Student’s Budget

By Moriah Masters

As a fashion marketing student, it’s important to me to return to campus in style. A back to school shopping trip is always in order, but being a college student, I have to stick to a budget. You know what that means – a trip to Buffalo Exchange! This year, I was looking for everything from 90s-inspired street style to dark bohemian prairie vibes. At Buffalo, I was able to put together three fall style looks that I absolutely love without going over budget!

Don’t Mesh with My Fall Style

Buffalo Exchange Mesh Dress

This feminine chic fall style is all about layering and uses lightweight mesh dresses that are great transitional pieces. In particular, I was looking for something with asymmetrical lines and ruffles, which are all the rage right now. At my local Buffalo Exchange, I ended up finding a mock neck mesh dress that fit the bill and layered it with items I already had in my closet. Since these dresses are sheer, layering is a necessity. For a more casual look, you could pair a mesh dress with a pair of shorts or jeans and a tank or bralette.

Luxe in Metallic

Buffalo Exchange Metallic

90s-inspired looks with high-shine? Yes please! Metallics were top on my list of fall style must-haves. Luckily, I found the perfect pleated skirt and paired it with a New York tank to achieve the vibe I was looking for. With metallics, it’s all about balance! Pick a statement piece and then dress it down with denim and a neutral-colored top.

Buffalo Exchange Atlanta Back to School Trends

3 of Our Favorite Back to School Trends

By Buffalo Exchange Atlanta

Shopping for back to school wardrobes can be quite the tall order. If you’re anything like us, you plan out your first-day outfit to a T, PLUS try to stock up on a solid selection of basics, PLUS pick up the year’s top back to school trends, all while staying under budget. Geez – say that five times fast. To help you out, we’ve put together a few of our favorite looks of the year, all crafted affordably with finds from Buffalo Exchange. Whether worrying about your GPA is (thankfully) a thing of the past or you’re still trucking your way through school, these looks are perfect for fall!

Camo Cameo    

Buffalo Exchange Atlanta Camo

Camouflage has been on the radar all summer long, but it’s now available in a refreshing array of colors, including pink, fluorescent yellow and orange. Perhaps surprisingly, this is one of the more versatile back to school trends – if you want to dabble with camo, pick up a tee, hat or bag with the print. Otherwise, go for the most popular camo item, by far: a baggy, army-style pant.  Pair these with crop tops, graphic tees, band tees or mesh.

New Takes on Denim

When we think of back to school shopping, we think of the hunt for the perfect jeans.  There’s nothing more classic than denim for fall, but you don’t have to stick to just jeans and a tee!  Interesting new back to school trends in denim are available this year: think frayed hems and distressing, embroidery, button-front skirts, overalls, jumpsuits and denim jackets for a full Americana look.  Denim looks especially good when paired with bandanas or covered with patches and pins.

Fall & Winter Denim Trends: Embroidery, Patches & Distressing, Oh My!

By Monica Eckhoff, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Fall and winter are no stranger to denim, but we’re seeing so many fun updates this season! Here are a few of our must-have denim trends hitting stores now.

Denim Trends: The Trucker Jacket

Buffalo Exchange Trucker Jackets

Denim jackets are a classic Americana staple in everyone’s closet, but this year we’re seeing fun customizations with patches, text, distressing and raw hem lines for that worn-in look. These are available in any wash you could want, including light washes, dark denim and, of course, black!

Denim Trends: How to Style Embroidered Jeans

Buffalo Exchange Embroidered Jeans and Bodysuit

Embroidery isn’t just for summer! We’ve paired these fun light wash, raw hem jeans with a dark tie-neck bodysuit and a simple matching rose beanie and wedges.

If you prefer a look that’s more casual but still totally cute, pair the same jeans and beanie with a fun ruffle sleeve tee and a denim jacket for some denim on denim action.

Buffalo Exchange embroidered denim and hoodie

For the sportier gal, we paired some darker wash step- hem jeans with a cropped choker neck hoodie. Add some comfortable sneakers and a backpack and you’re ready to head off to class.

Biker grunge is taking the Pacific Northwest by storm and customers in Seattle can’t get enough of this rock and roll trend.

The moto jacket has become the closet cure-all. Raid your dad’s closet (or your local Buffalo Exchange) and pull this wardrobe staple out the archives. (Who are we  kidding?
