Here in the Old Pueblo (aka Tucson) our summer is slowly changing to fall. We know this because we occasionally have a thoughtful draft of cool air brush against our faces and limbs as we venture outside in the evenings. We know this because our cars are no longer 130 degrees inside when we climb into them after an outing to the grocery store. We know this because we have naturally cut back (just a little bit) on how much water we are drinking every day.

Style File: Seattle (U-District)

By Buffalo Exchange Seattle (U-District)

Buffalo Exchange

It is finally summertime in Seattle, and it is hot and sunny with a 100% chance of great style. Sun deprived and ready to get (somewhat of) a tan, our customers are strutting their stuff down The Ave in funky and fashion-forward outfits. We’ve seen fun flirty floral prints, crazy cutout crop tops, and easy going earth tones—Seattle fashion has it all. Of course, it wouldn’t be Seattle if there wasn’t some layering involved. Our customers are pairing their summery outfits with lightweight vests and jackets to keep them warm when the sun goes down.

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!

Back To School: Plaids

By Buffalo Exchange San Francisco (Haight St.)

Buffalo Exchange

Every book smart babe knows that one piece of plaid is not enough. As back to school quickly approaches the print is flying off our racks here in San Francisco. The beauty of plaid is that it’s a versatile print anyone can pull off. Be it the Queen Bee going for the grunge look to rule the school, or everyone’s sweetheart in a vintage inspired dress that would make anyone the teacher’s pet. No matter how you wear it, plaid will earn you an A+ in style. So layer it on, and take the school year by storm!
