Meet the Team: The Interns


Say hi to our marketing interns - Lanny, Alyssa, and Madison (left to right). They're a funky bunch, and we love having them around. Our interns aren't coffee-getters or copy-makers. They're doing real stuff with real people and real brands. See what they have to say, and ask them any questions in the comments below.

3 Ways to Keep Shining All Year Round

Meet Kaylinda - one of our store designers. She spends most of her days making Buckle stores fit into designated lease spaces. But her real talent is in the way she sparkles. In fact, she's been crowned the "Sparkle Queen" around the office. Her department even challenged her to wear something sparkly every day for the entire month of December. (And she succeeded!) 

Since New Year's has passed, many of us are stashing away our sequins for the next special occasion. But at Buckle, the life of sequins extends far beyond the ball drop. Take some advice from the "Sparkle Queen" herself to continue shining year-round.                                                                                                                                                                                         
1. Kimonos 
Everyone thought kimonos were only around for the spring and summer, but here they are in winter, still making way as a must-have style piece. Kick your kimono game up a notch by pairing it with a little sparkle.

Office Debate: Cardigan Sweater vs. Pullover Sweater


Once in awhile, strokes of passion collide. Creating mayhem. Exploding into formal debate. You could say things got a little heated in the office today. Pens were thrown. Coffee mugs hidden. Styles challenged.

[Cue dramatic rise in music and tension.]

This afternoon, two interns with very unique styles hash out an extremely pressing issue - Which sweater is better? Cardigan or pullover?

7 Risky Style Moves Worth Taking For Men


Lanny here. Or, as I've been dubbed around the office coffee bar - LanTern. (Lanny + Intern). You're welcome to call me either. 

Let's talk about risky confidence. A bit of an oxymoron, I suppose. Typically, people aren't exuding self-assurance while taking risks. But often times, flirting with mild danger is when I grow the most.

So, I recently challenged myself to be risky on a daily basis. Failed immediately. Maybe skydiving, going to a Miley Cyrus concert, and skinny dipping were a little out of reach for the week. So, I decided to take risks on something I already do every day. Getting dressed. 

What I've concluded is that the absolute best way to wear anything is with confidence. Even if your style challenges the norm, stick with it. Be you. Be confident. And no one will question it.  

Here are seven style risks I've been taking. They all require minimal effort and cash.

The Best Resolution for 2015


New Year's resolutions are like discovering new songs. For the first few days, you can't get enough. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Then, after a couple of weeks, your obsession starts to fade. Until one day, it's pretty much gone. Buried at the bottom of your playlists. Forgotten. A year later, you rediscover it and the cycle continues.
