How to Sell Your Clothes

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Whether your closet is overflowing (literally) or you’re just looking to make a little extra cash, you may find yourself wondering how to sell your clothes. It all starts with cleaning out your closet. Find out the top tips for reorganizing your closet and reselling your clothes at Buffalo Exchange.

1) Clean out early, clean out often

Capsule wardrobe specialists and minimal lifestyle gurus recommend cleaning out every three months – once per every season change. If you’re overwhelmed just thinking about it, try every six months. When you clean out, sort into three categories: out-of-season items to be stored away in plastic tubs, worn-out items to be donated and items to sell.

Remember that most clothing resale stores start buying for the upcoming season a few months in advance. At Buffalo Exchange, for example, we start taking Fall inventory in July. We also buy current, high quality items in excellent condition out of season.  Moving to Hawaii (you lucky duck!) and wondering what to do with the brand new Patagonia jacket you’ll never wear? Bring it in!

The Bourgeois Chiaroscuro

By Buffalo Exchange Costa Mesa

What is a Bourgeois Chiaroscuro? Bourgeois are people who love labels and chiaroscuro is an effect of contrasted light and shadow. Our styles in the OC consist of playing in the sun or staying posted in the shadows.

The trendy folks of Orange County take their own twist on the current 60s and 90s influenced comebacks. We see boho girls in their free-spirited 60s dresses and blouses, or guys in flannels and cardigans with basic tees. We also have the darker alt fashions of the 90s covered. Being beach city people, we can’t just pick up any flannel and wrap it around our waists—we want a classic J. Crew button-up version!

Style File: Costa Mesa

BuffaloExchange

After beating the November heat, fall is officially in full swing in Southern California! Moving away from spring floral prints and bright colors, girls update their wardrobe by incorporating dark floral accents, tailored army jackets, flowy sweaters and gold jewelry. Men, on the other hand, keep it simple with their “tried-and-true” look that includes a crisp button-up shirt, work-wear boots and opting for hued pants instead of denim. The look is consistent, classic and true from Breton stripes to boho-chic, there’s something for everyone here in Costa Mesa.

Street Style: Costa Mesa

Buffalo Exchange (3)Welcome to the Sunshine State indeed!  Blame it on the beach, but Costa Mesa in the Fall has been nothing but sunshine. Both our ladies and our fellas have been having a hard time trying to gear up for changing of the leaves or even colder weather, but being creative all at the same time. Female shoppers have been scooping up maxi and midi skirts in all shapes and sizes, from Jersey to chiffon pairing it with sheer blouses in black, taupe, pale pastels and even mint. For those who prefer denim, dark and skinny is what they order, sometimes with a splash of pattern or print and being so close to South Coast Plaza, designer denim is all the rage. When the temperature does cool down, our savvy shoppers layer plaid flannels, striped sweaters, denim jackets, bomber jackets or even the occasional fur vest, which we predict will be a huge sell out come Black Friday. And the fun doesn’t stop there, accessories including anything metallic are a Fall and Winter staple; scarves, shoes and jewelry all have that beautiful metallic sheen. Let’s not forget the feet! Fashionistas always love a great boot and around this time of the year. Brown, black, caramel colors and Army style, Moto style, up to the knees, down to the ankle, you name it, we’ve seen it flying off the shelves. Full Story


Street Style: Buffalo Exchange Costa Mesa

Street Style

Many of our Costa Mesa guys follow trends in the street wear industry.  It’s a little bit hip-hop, a little bit skater and a little bit high-fashion. Looks have transitioned from less baggy to more fitted featuring narrow-leg, raw denim seen in labels like Nudie, Naked and Famous and APC.  Graphic tees are softer, leaner and simpler using a black, gray, white, teal and red color palette.  Slim-fitting, short-sleeved, chambray button ups are paired with snapback or camp hats from Mitchell and Ness, TISA or Supreme.  Skinny shoes like Vans Authentics or wingtip boots have taken the place of thicker, clunky sneakers.Full Story
