Picks Of The Month: August Edition

It’s back-to-school season, football season begins and new fall trends start to emerge.

We sat down with our buyers in men’s, women’s and youth apparel to see what is hot in our stores this month. Check it out and let us know what you are most excited for in the comments!

Backpacks

An essential piece for back to school is a backpack. Whether you are carrying a pencil box or laptop, something equally important to every age is compartments. We have sorted through the best of the best and the packs below are our top three choices for maximizing space.

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

A popular mountaineering silhouette, the Herschel Little America™ backpack elevates an iconic style with modern functionality.

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

Completely redesigned to organize your electronics and simplify your life on-the-go, the 31-liter women-specific Surge backpack, by The North Face, is constructed of hyper-durable ballistics nylon and crafted with a padded haul handle on the exterior. It features a front organizational compartment, a larger main compartment and a 15″ laptop compartment that zips completely open and lays flat to meet TSA requirements. Fleece-lined pockets include a tablet sleeve, media pocket and a sunglasses pocket.

UA Storm technology delivers an element-battling, highly water-resistant finish. The Under Armour Hustle 3.0 backpack features a soft lined laptop sleeve, a laundry/shoe pocket placed at the bottom of the bag and water-repellant front pockets to keep your items dry and safe.

3 Key Trends To Watch

Every fall, there are key trends to watch and wear. Our buyers hit the road to see what these trends were and how we can bring them to you. This season brings on a new color palette to work into your wardrobe along with our favorite accessory, boots! The key fall trends to know are below.

1. Mustard Yellow

This color seems to make an appearance every fall. However, this year it is being introduced in new ways. These are the items you can easily incorporate into your closet to hit this trend.

Women

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

Columbia South Canyon Bluff Vest

You don’t need to wear this color head to toe to be on trend. Adding it in here and there can be just enough to show you are trendy but also like to stay true to your own style. Vests are a must-have for fall so it is only fitting we cater to this. This Columbia vest is flannel lined (our favorite detail) and is warm enough to wear later in the fall without needing a jacket. Pair with a dark rinse denim and long sleeve top. 

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

Patagonia Pastel Logo Crew Tee

If being bold isn’t for you, this crew neck tee is great for an understated pop of color. The best part is the soft feel and shrink resistant fabric. We like to style this with a loose fitting cardigan and high rise denim.

Men

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Pullover

They say nothing is perfect. But the soft, livable comfort of the Synchilla Snap-T Pullover sure comes close. Made to exceptionally high standards from double-faced 100% polyester fleece, the warm and easy-care pullover traps body heat, holds off light wind and resists abrasion. Any jean or relaxed fit pant will look great paired with it.

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

Levi’s 514 Straight Fit Pant

The classic straight fit. Ideal for medium to athletic builds, Levi’s 514 Straight Fit Pants are versatile and comfortable for regular wear. Wear with a button down shirt to dress it up a bit.

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

Girls’ Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Pullover

Your first Snap-T is practically a rite of passage. From there, you move onto San Juan floats and Beehive Basin hikes. Made from lightweight, warm double-faced polyester fleece, this girls’ pullover features classic Snap-T styling, including a nylon-flapped pocket at the left chest.

2. White Sneakers

White shoes are no longer limited to special occasions. The white sneaker has made its way back into the limelight. Quick tip: use nail polish remover to clean your shoes if the stain can not be wiped off with a damp towel or rag. Keep those white kicks truly white!

These easy on and off sneakers are prefect for your infant. They are easy to adjust and have a memory foam footbed.

3. Plaid

Flannel normally rules the road when it comes to fall attire but this year plaid is taking over. What’s the difference, you ask? Plaid is a pattern whereas flannel is a fabric.

Women

Picks Of The Month: August Edition

Downeast Plaid

The colors found in this top scream fall! The fit allows for the sleeves to be rolled or left down. We also love the detail found in the back. Perfect for any occasion. Dark jeans look best with the deeper color palette.
