The Times They Are A-Changin’: Winter-to-Spring Outfits to Wear Now

By Aarian Frye, Buffalo Exchange HQ; Photos from Buffalo Exchange Portland (Hawthorne)

 

Oh, January. No matter where you are in the country, you’re probably kind of over the whole winter cyclone thing. Plus, after dressing up for most of December, it’s easy to fall into a post‐holiday fashion slump. Fortunately, we here at Buffalo Exchange have got your parka‐covered back! With help from Buffalo Exchange Portland (Hawthorne), we’ve put together some cozy winter-to-spring outfits that you can start wearing now. As the weather warms up, simply peel off a layer or two!

Café – Oh, Late!

We can all agree that getting out of bed is especially difficult on overcast winter days. So, if you ever find yourself late to a coffee date with your BFF, throw on cropped black pants with an oversized sweatshirt (we suggest going sporty chic with a purposefully worn‐in team logo) and a denim jacket. Finish it off with a chunky circle scarf and a pair of mod white booties. When the temperatures begin to rise, this is one of those winter-to-spring outfits that you can easily modify by ditching the jacket and scarf and rolling up the varsity sweatshirt sleeves. Next thing you know, you’ll be too cool for school.

Buffalo Exchange How to Sell Your Clothes

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!

Buffalo Exchange How to Layer Cold Weather

Cold-Weather Style: How to Layer

By Buffalo Exchange San Diego (Hillcrest) and Buffalo Exchange Boston (Somerville)

If you’ve ever felt like a complete marshmallow-shaped goober after bundling up for the snow, then you know staying stylish in the cold weather isn’t always easy. Luckily, it’s layering to the rescue! Layering gives you maximum flexibility, ensuring you stay warm when you need to without overheating when you finally make it inside. Plus, if you’ve ever had a morning where you just can’t decide which top you like better, now you don’t have to! When you layer, you can wear all your favorite pieces at once.

All About That Base

So, how to layer successfully? Start with a strong “base” item. This piece anchors your whole outfit and pulls all the disparate pieces together. Choose this item wisely – it will take center stage when you get inside and start shedding layers. Plus, you’ll probably wear it on its own come spring. Your base piece will help you determine the color palette for your entire outfit and figure out how many layers you can add without hulking out.
