How to Create a Home Workspace like a Pro

Fashion

Released 9/15/20

 

School is back in session, but where students are getting their education this year could still change.

 

Many schools have delayed in-person learning until late fall. Some schools are offering remote learning for the entire year – or a hybrid option. Other schools plan to welcome students back to the classroom if they fall within the state department’s gating level criteria.

 

While there are still many unknowns surrounding the school year, here’s what we do know – students need a dedicated learning space to buckle down and focus on their studies. And, parents should be able to create that space without breaking the bank.

 

Just ask local interior designer Nicole Henson of @KCinteriorco.

 

Nicole was able to create a comfortable and productive workspace for her 11-year-old daughter using items found right here at Legends Outlets’ stores and retailers. You won’t even believe the transformation from spare bedroom to stylish classroom!

 

 

After the big reveal, we sat down with Nicole to get more details about the workspace. Continue reading below to learn how you can create a similar space in your own home, and to get her top designer tips!

 

PSSSST: to find out where Nicole scored everything for the space, scroll all the way down for a list of stores and items.

 

Q&A with Nicole Henson

 

Q: Do you have to be a professional designer to create a home workspace?

Absolutely not! With the right tools and tips, anyone can create a home workspace.

 

 

Q: What is the most important element to consider when deciding where to set up a home workspace?

Eliminating distractions is very important, so when setting up a home workspace, I would recommend finding a quiet, secluded spot in your home. Another important aspect of a good workspace is comfort. You want to create an environment where your child can focus, and that means comfort is key.

 

 

Q: Where should you set up a home workspace? What areas would you avoid?

The options are endless – a corner of your living room, kitchen, hallway, or rec room would work, as long as it’s quiet! If available, a spare bedroom (like we used for our workspace) is a great option. I would avoid using your child’s bedroom, or any areas with loud noises that include TV, music and talking. Finding a quiet, comfortable space is best suited for a child!

 

 

Q: Where / how do you even start the process of creating a home workspace?

A great way to start is by getting your child involved. Consider their study style, and let them take part in creating this space! I truly believe the key components of the space are those that a child (or teen) can call their own, those they helped create!

 

 

Q; What are the essential components of the home workspace?

A comfortable chair or seating area, great lighting, and materials to keep all of their school supplies organized (I cannot stress this enough).

 

 

Q: What are the fun elements you can add to the home workspace?

Don’t be afraid to play with colors and prints! You can bring new life to a white wall with fun wallpaper. If you want something less permanent, I recommend decorating the space with colorful posters and positive prints. Studies show that looking at positive images can create a positive mindset – color also stimulates the mind!

 

 

Q: What are your tips for moms looking to recreate this on a budget? Is that even possible?

It is definitely possible, especially when you shop at stores like HomeGoods and T.J. Maxx, which I visited during my trip to Legends Outlets. I love the one-stop shopping aspect and outlet pricing that Legends Outlets offers busy moms like myself. You really don’t have to spend a fortune to create a fun, functional space – I did it on a budget, and you can too!

 

 

Q: As a designer, where do you draw inspiration?

I really draw inspiration from the person I am designing for – and for this project, that person was my daughter! Her favorite color pattern is rainbow, so I made sure to incorporate that throughout the room. She was pretty bummed about virtual learning, so I wanted to create a space that was fun, colorful and kept her happy each time she walked in!

 

 

Q: Final words of advice for moms looking to create a workspace in their home?

Moms – choose the right space, ask your kiddos for input, make it fun, and add a ton of elements and items to keep it all organized. Enjoy!

Modern Prep

Tie-dye is definitely trending this season, and this adorable little button-front shirt from Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store is the perfect piece! Paired with a stylish navy bomber jacket and white cutoff denim shorts, this outfit is the perfect modern take on a classic preppy look. His Nike sneakers will take him from the classroom, to recess and PE in style.

  • All clothing: Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store
  • Nike sneakers: Off Broadway Shoes

 

 

Picture Perfect 

Well, hello, classic back-to-school vibes! This is the perfect little outfit for picture day—its business up top and party on the bottom! The cuffed pants and modern sneaker really make this look more youthful and fun.  Graham’s classic sweater vest and plaid button-up are smart wardrobe additions as they can be worn into the holidays and beyond!

  • Clothing: Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store
  • Sneakers & lunch box: Off Broadway Shoes

 

Pro Tip: Shop early! Don’t procrastinate—if you want to be able to find what you want without fighting the crowds, be sure to head out to the Legends Outlets soon! Wear your mask and be sure to practice social distancing, but there’s no reason you and your child can’t make back to school shopping a super fun outing. Making a day of back-to-school shopping can really help get your student excited to head back to the classroom with confidence.

Girly Gingham

The 90s are back in a big way, and the classic gingham in this romper is a quintessential 90s print with such adorable ruffle detail. We modernized it by adding a chic platform sandal from Off Broadway. Add a bootie and try layering on a cardigan or cute cropped jacket and textured tights with this piece for an easy transition to fall when the temps begin to drop.

  • Romper: Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store
  • Long-sleeved tee: J.Crew Factory
  • Notebook: BAM Books-a-Million
  • Sandals: Off Broadway Shoes

 

 

Sparkle & Shine

Add a little bit of sparkle to your day with an adorable sequined graphic tee like this one from J Crew Factory. We love this tee paired with visually interesting denim like these jeans from Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store and playful accessories like this scrunchie/hair scarf. Carla’s rain jacket is also a super affordable and fun wardrobe staple—we love that it’s translucent, which is trending for the season as well.

  • T-shirt: J.Crew Factory
  • Rain jacket and Jeans: Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store
  • Backpack: BAM-Books-A-Million

 

Pro Tip: Always size up when you’re purchasing a jacket for your growing child—this one will transition well into spring if you size up!

Preppy Plaid

We love this preppy and feminine look from H&M. Windowpane plaid pants are #trending for fall and winter (trust us, you’ll see them on boys, girls and adults of all ages!), and this pair does not disappoint. Bonus: the side stripe gives them an elevated detail that also gives us major Gucci vibes! They are perfectly paired with this sweet blush sweater and collared shirt, but don’t stop there—they would also give an interesting twist to a vintage-inspired tee and faux leather jacket!

  • Clothing and shoes: H&M
  • Backpack: Kate Spade

 

All-Day Denim

This denim button-front dress is a fan FAVE! Peruse any store this fall, and you’re sure to see button- and zip-front details on skirts, dresses and rompers. This look is majorly #trending. Abby’s tie-dye hoodie makes this outfit much more casual and a little less “prep-school,” and she will get so much mileage out of both pieces. Pair the dress with a classic button up or even a solid colored tee for a more classic look, and the hoodie would work well with leggings or distressed denim for a more casual vibe.

  • Dress and hoodie: Aéropostale
  • White undershirt: H&M
  • Leopard Sneakers: Off Broadway Shoes

 

Pro Tip: Don’t forget to grab the basics—not just clothing and shoes. Many retailers at Legends Outlets sell items like backpacks, lunch boxes, water bottles and hand sanitizer. Bath & Body Works even sells cute sanitizer holders that kids can attach to their backpacks! Remember that most schools won’t have water fountains available for students this fall, so a functional and stylish water bottle is a must!

Function & Fashion

Heading back to school may be a little tricky for teens used to lounging this summer, but a great, comfy pair of joggers can help make the transition to early mornings a little easier—literally, they feel like wearing PJs, but they look oh-so-chic! Pair them with a fun band/concert tee and a light denim jacket for fall, and wear them with a chunky cropped sweater and funky combat boots for the winter months. These will be a staple for your teen—trust us! Madison’s little black backpack is the perfect bag for the the school fashionista—it’s the perfect culmination of function meets fashion in the cutest little package!

  • Joggers, graphic tee and sneakers: maurices
  • Backpack and accessories: francesca’s

 

Mix & Match

Madison is a pro pattern mixer—just look at the way she has combined classic leopard print with modern tie-dye for a casually chic look that is perfect for back-to-school.

  • Clothes: maurices
  • Sandals & earrings: francesca’s

 

Pro Tip: When you’re mixing your patterns, look for prints from the same color family or in similar tones and be sure they are different size prints. The earthy tones in this large-scale tie-dye marries perfectly with the small scale leopard print jacket.

Campus Cool

Will is effortlessly campus cool in this athleisure look from the Nike Factory Store. His comfortable joggers and tee are perfect for a day of classes, studying, and a casual lunch with friends.

  • Entire look: Nike Factory Store

 

A Step Up

Although college campuses are typically more casual, on occasion, your college kid will need to dress up for events like listening to a speaker or a networking event. Will’s tailored denim and classic fitted hoodie are professional without being overdone. The highlight? His genuine leather backpack from Wilson’s Leather. This bag is an investment piece, but will go the distance as he transitions to the professional world.

  • Pants, belt, shirt and sweatshirt: J.Crew Factory

Floral Frock

Leah is ready for the first day of school or meet the teacher night (even if it’s done virtually!) with this classic frock from Kate Spade. This chic floral dress is perfect for those hot August days. Adding a variety of unexpected pops of color that work well together (her red/orange belt and aqua block-heel pumps) elevates an otherwise basic floral dress. Paired with a great tote, Leah is dressed for success those first days of school.

  • Dress: Kate Spade
  • Belt: francesca’s
  • Shoes: Off Broadway Shoes

 

Fall Floral

Because Leah’s floral dress is from Kate Spade, it is a little bit of an investment piece, so you want to make sure you can get mileage out of it. One simple way to do that is to transition the same dress into a fall staple by throwing on a sweater or cardigan and stylish ankle boots like these from Off Broadway Shoes. Voila! The perfect autumn outfit without breaking the bank!

  • Dress & bag: Kate Spade
  • Booties: Off Broadway Shoes
  • Sweater: J.Crew Factory
  • Earrings: francesca’s

 

Pro Tip: Investment in one printed or patterned piece (like Leah’s dress) that can be worn over and over again in different ways! This dress can be worn alone in the summer, with a light sweater in the spring, and with a sweater or jacket in the fall. It’s all about choosing the right shoes, accessories and layering components.

Legends Outlets prepares for reopening with added ...

News

Released 5/11/20

 

With the state of Kansas on the path to recovery, Legends Outlets is working on plans to safely reopen the shopping center. The health and safety of its retailers, guests and employees remains to be the top priority, and the center will implement many new social distancing and community safety measures recommended by the Wyandotte County Health Department.

 

During the mandatory stay at home order, Legends Outlets remained focused on deep sanitization throughout the center. They introduced a hospital-grade touchless sanitation machine to increase cleanliness and productivity to common areas, restrooms and corridors. They also used this time to make updates and improvements around the center, such as:

 

• Sandblasting and repainting benches, stairwells, poles, and railings
• Power washing all trellises and awnings
• Enhancing landscaping
• Installing new LED lights in the parking garage
• Repairing concrete around the center

 

As expected, the shopping experience will be a bit different for guests the next time they visit. As Legends Outlets prepares to reopen the center to meet the needs of the community, they are taking the following steps to place health and safety above all else:

 

• Working with the security team to control access and flow of traffic through the center and to pinpoint high areas of concentration throughout the center and parking lots

• Encouraging social distancing throughout the center; using signage and decals to help customers practice social distancing

• Requiring retailers and restaurants to reconfigure their spaces to accommodate the 6-foot social distancing recommendations

• Restructuring common areas to safely provide comfort and enjoyment with proper social distancing

• Installing no-touch step and pulls on all restroom doors

• Closing levels two and three of the parking garages; closing the escalators and elevators

• Turning off drinking fountains

• Installing hand sanitizer stations throughout the center to ensure employees and guests have access as needed

• Providing masks and gloves for employees

• Offering free onsite temperature checks, disposable masks and sanitizer wipes for guests upon request

 

The center has also implemented an aggressive disinfecting regimen on top of its already rigorous cleaning schedule. Housekeeping and security partners have added additional hours and equipment for cleaning and sanitizing throughout the day as well as after-hours, with a focus on high-touch points and high-traffic surfaces.

 

Several stores at Legends Outlets will be re-opening as early as May 18. Some retailers will be operating under alternate hours or may be opening at a later date, and others are working on plans that will allow shoppers to place their order over the phone and pick up in-store. Legends Outlets will continue to update its website with details as those plans become finalized. Essential businesses including restaurants remain open for curbside pickup, carryout and delivery services only. Please click here, or contact individual restaurants for more information.

Dear Shoppers,

 

The health and safety of our consumers, employees and merchants is our top priority right now. Just like you, we are closely monitoring the latest developments related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and taking preventative actions to ensure the well-being of everyone at our center. While there are still many unknowns, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) and World Health Organization (WHO) have issued guidance for best practices related to the spread of both COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses.

 

In accordance with these guidelines, and in close partnership with our facility, housekeeping and security partners, we have implemented an aggressive disinfecting regimen on top of our already rigorous cleaning schedule. Extra team members are working around the clock to ensure our consumers’ safety by cleaning and sanitizing highly trafficked locations at increased frequencies, including but not limited to:

  • Door handles/knobs
  • Seating areas
  • Trash cans
  • Restrooms
  • Drinking fountains
  • Mall office / guest services

 

In addition, our team is following the safety precautions recommended by the CDC and WHO, and we encourage you to do the same. Here are some basic steps that you can take to protect yourself and keep others safe:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily

 

Modified Operating Hours and Closures

Due to the increase of social distancing directives of the CDC, several stores have modified their operating hours or are temporarily closed. We encourage you to call individual stores or check their website for the latest information on hours, and to find out what steps they are taking to ensure a safe and healthy environment inside their store. A full list of stores and contact information can be found HERE.

 

We will continue to monitor all communication from the CDC, WHO, State Department of Health, and other governmental agencies, and we will provide any additional updates as they become available.

Spring Prints for the Win

Fashion

Released 3/13/20

 

From flowy floral dresses to classy gingham silhouettes and pretty polka dots, we’re having fun with fashion in spring’s top patterns! Whether you’re a minimalist or a print enthusiast, Legends Outlets is here to help you navigate the season’s hottest trends from low-key details to bright and bold designs.

 

FLORALS

Spring without florals is like the 70’s without disco, unimaginable. This spring we’re traveling back in time to the iconic era with 70’s wallpaper inspired floral patterns, like this pink and red dress from Kate Spade outlet. Très mod, très retro, très-statement making. Just add platform sandals and go!

Pro Tip: If 70’s wallpaper gives you anxiety, you can still participate in the floral fun with bohemian floral, a more subtle take on the trend. Pair a boho-print blouse with cute cut-offs and booties, or try a boho-floral print maxi dress, cinched at the waist with a leather belt and sandals.

1: Kate Spade Outlet. 2: Off Broadway Shoes. 3: Francesca’s. 4: Gap Outlet. 5: Off Broadway Shoes. 6: Banana Republic Factory Store. 7: H&M . 8: Off Broadway Shoes.

 

POLKA DOTS

Mini Mouse…but make it fashion. Polka dots are having a major comeback, and we’ve seen them EVVV-ERRR-YYY where this season. Go bold or go home in this knit mock-turtleneck sweater from H&M – it’s playful, chic and easy to dress up or down. Pair it with a distressed pair of high-waisted jeans and sneakers for a more casual look, and throw on a moto jacket over to add some edge. For a more sophisticated style, pair a polka dot midi skirt with your favorite white tee and some strappy heels.

Pro Tip: If you’re not ready to jump headfirst into the polka-dot trend, opt for a head band or head scarf instead.

1: H&M. 2: Gap Outlet. 3: Off Broadway Shoes. 4: Wilson’s Leather. 5: Gap Outlet. 6: H&M. 7: Off Broadway Shoes. 8: H&M.

 

GINGHAM

If this dress from J.Crew Factory doesn’t make you want to go on a picnic, we give up. The preppy pattern has been a wardrobe-staple for decades, but the look gets an exciting upgrade this spring with new shapes, bright colors and two-piece sets. We can’t help but LOVE the versatility of the navy-white style, too.

Pro Tip: If you’re worried about looking like a schoolgirl or Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, glam up the look with eye-catching accessories like a statement necklace, bold earrings, glitzy barrettes, or grunge it up with some lace-up Dr. Martens.

Transition Your Outerwear from Winter to Spring

Fashion

Released 2/12/20

Find trendy outerwear pieces at Legends Outlets’ retailers to transition from one season to the next in style!

 

Well, the groundhog saw his shadow…is it spring yet? But seriously, February can be a tricky month when it comes to fashion. Spring fever is on the horizon and the styles have hit the stores, but let’s be honest…..it’s still cold in KC! We are all tired of our winter bundles and ready for a fresh dose of fashion, but Mother Nature just seems to be on a different wavelength. Thankfully, there are numerous options for transitional outerwear that will take you from season to season in style while keeping you warm.

 

Our stylists took it to the streets at the Legends Outlets to find the best of the best when it comes to jackets and coats for late winter and early spring. Layered up with other seasonal pieces, these gorgeous jackets are showstoppers and put the “fun” in function.

 

 

Look 1: Chic Camel 

Want to make your outfit instantly chic? Throw on a camel-colored trench coat over a tailored dress, or a pair of jeans and a sweater, and you’re ready to take on any situation in style. When shopping for the perfect trench coat, shop fit first—the key is making sure the coat fits you well through the shoulders and the bust. There are tons of affordable options for trench coats on the market, but don’t feel guilty spending a little more on an item like this because it is so timeless and won’t go out of style.

 

GET THE LOOK: Trench coat, dress, flats, necklace and earrings: J.Crew Factory

 

PRO TIP: Most classic trench coats come with a built-in belt. To show off your outfit underneath the trench coat, try tying the coat’s belt in the back to nip in the waist and give your jacket more shape.

 

 

Look 2: Colorful Puffer

This season, if there’s one jacket that you have to have, it’s a puffer. Yep, you read that right….puffers aren’t just for little kids playing in the snow anymore, and they are also not just for the coldest winter days. On its own, a puffer jacket can read as super casual and sporty. But there are ways to elevate it and make it feel more polished and even professional.

 

GET THE LOOK: H&M puffer jacket; Old Navy Outlet pants and sneakers; American Eagle logo t-shirt

 

PRO TIP: When it comes to choosing a color for your perfect puffer, we vote for choosing one that you will get a lot of wear out of—maybe the color of your favorite sports team.

 

 

Look 3: Fun Floral 

This sweet little floral raincoat from H&M is the perfect layer for those damp, early spring days. Because rain jackets tend to be super lightweight, don’t be afraid to layer a chunky sweater or fleece jacket under it for warmth. Look for a fun pattern or even a metallic hue when purchasing a rain jacket for your child. We love this dark floral, which could easily pair with jewel tones and transition to fall later on, so this little jacket is not just a one-hit-wonder.

 

GET THE LOOK:  Jacket, sweater, skirt, boots, socks, and headband: H&M

 

PRO TIP: Always buy one size up when purchasing outerwear for your kids, so they can get  more than one year out of it.  The oversized look is super on-trend right now anyway, which is also happens to be super practical when you’re trying to get a lot of mileage out of your kids’ clothes.

How to Style Pantone’s Color of the Year, Cl...

Fashion

Released 1/15/20

 

Welcome to a New Decade! 2020 also brings us the new Pantone color of the year, Classic Blue, which is popping up everywhere in the world of home décor and fashion. With its preppy, Parisian vibes, Classic Blue is perfect medium blue — a hue that is not quite navy, not quite cobalt, but instead, the perfect in-the-middle blue tone sure to flatter all skin tones. This cerulean–esque shade is classic, yet fresh and so easy to style with our simple tips and tricks.

 

Our stylists scoured the Legends Outlets to create three outfits, which highlight some of the freshest trends for 2020 starring, of course, classic blue. From color blocking to a chic monochromatic ensemble and everything in between, you’ll find all of these looks at the Legends Outlets.

 

ISABELLE

Go Bold! Color blocking (wearing contrasting colors in large scale chunks) can be tricky, but when it’s done well, its very effective and modern. The trick is to look for pieces that do the color blocking for you like this gorgeous sweater from Old Navy.

Try mixing classic blue with other bold-colored pieces from the other side of the color wheel, such as marigold, yellow, orange, magenta, red, burgundy and even turquoise. And be brave enough to venture away from just denim and neutrals on your bottom half.  We love Isabelle’s sweater thrown over a simple blue shift dress from Francesca’s, or a beautiful classic blue blouse would pop against a vibrant hot pink pencil skirt, for example.

 

Pro Tip: Stick with the same saturation of colors. You don’t want a very bold, saturated hue with a pastel. Pair bold with bold and let the color do the talking!

 

Get Isabelle’s look:

Pair a slightly oversized color block sweater over a solid dress that will easily transition to spring. Add a white combat boot like this Steve Madden pair from Off Broadway, or a sandal when the temps start to rise!

  • Sweater: Old Navy
  • Dress: Francesca’s
  • Boots: Off Broadway
  • Earrings: Francesca’s

 

BRIANNA

If blue isn’t necessarily your favorite color, adding it into your wardrobe through a print or a bold accessory or two is best. The fresh pop of color can modernize your wardrobe in an inexpensive way that still makes you feel like “you” and doesn’t lead you too outside your comfort zone.  Bring in Classic Blue through accessories like jewelry , purses, and prints like this gorgeous blouse from Ann Taylor Factory at Legends Outlets.  Paired with a classic black trouser, Brianna is ready to hit the office, but she could easily swap the pants for denim for a night out with friends!

 

Get Brianna’s look:

Choose a blouse that features a print that speaks to you featuring a hint of Classic Blue—a stripe, a plaid, a floral—it doesn’t matter! Paired with a sleek pant, the focus of this outfit is undoubtedly the classic plaid print, and the hints of blue are also brought out through gorgeous blue-toned jewelry.

  • Blouse: Ann Taylor Factory
  • Pants: Ann Taylor Factory
  • Pumps: Off Broadway
  • Choker & Earrings:  Francesca’s

 

OLIVIA

Take street style to the next level by creating a monochromatic look—head to toe in the same blue hue. The key to pulling off a monochromatic look is the incorporation of different textures—think leather with fur, sequins with satins, or knits with cozy quilted fabrics like Olivia chose with this sleek knit body-con dress from Michael Kors paired with her blue quilted puffer jacket. Tres chic! Throw on a stylish sneaker, and you’re good to go!

 

Pro Tip: When you do a monochromatic look with many different textures, keep the accessories bold, but not busy—a classic gold cuff and simple oversized hoop earring do the trick.  

 

Get Olivia’s Look:

Look for pieces that juxtapose each other just enough in shape and texture but feature the same classic blue tone. Olivia’s body-con dress is the perfect lady-like touch to hold its own under a sporty puffer jacket. Her quilted leather blue backpack is the perfect finish-the-look piece. Shop all these pieces at the Legends Outlets.

  • Dress: Michael Kors
  • Jacket: Michael Kors
  • Backpack: Michael Kors
  • Jewelry: Francesca’s

 

 

Fitness Gear for the New Year

Fashion

Released 1/13/20

By guest writer Cara H. of Cara’s Fit Code

 

At the beginning of the new year, I always treat myself with some new workout gear to help further motivate me and make me excited about my fitness goals. Because what’s better than going to the gym in a cute new workout outfit? It not only helps me to LOOK like I’m going to go slay my workout but also makes me FEEL so confident too!

 

So this year, I set a Saturday shopping date with my mom at Legends Outlet for one of the first weekends in January. After all the crazy holiday shopping and hustle to find perfect gifts, I was excited to be able to leisurely shop without having a set list of things we had to find. I did have a couple of things that I was hoping to find, such as (1) new workout shoes (I haven’t bought new shoes in over a year!) and also a new equipment to add to my home gym.

 

Our first stop was at the Victoria’s Secret|PINK store. They have such a great selection of activewear – as soon as I walked it I grabbed a shopping bag because I knew I was going to want to try on a lot! I absolutely love their new seamless line – the leggings are SO comfortable and I ended up taking them home in this dark green color! I also fell in love with this velvet lined sports bra – so feminine and unique – and this pink jacket to throw on before and after my workouts! Their twist front sports bras fit so well too and I ended up taking home one in this basic black.

 

Next stop: Nike Factory Store. I’ve been on the hunt for a cute, sporty puffer jacket to to wear to my workouts and also casually on the weekends. This puffer coat in robin egg blue immediately caught my eye and was on sale for 25% of the price that you would buy it for online! I was so happy to find the new sneakers I was on the hunt for here, too!! I tried on about 5 different pairs, but ultimately fell in love with this Epic Flyknit sneakers. I like the look of the all-white shoe with the pop of bright colors.

 

We also stopped in at the Adidas outlet and the entire store was 50% off, including their Cloudfoam sneakers which I have been eyeing forever! I also picked up a really cute kid’s sweat set for my toddler son.

 

We then headed on over to Jockey – I love their seamless bras – they are so comfortable for lounging and are even comfortable enough to sleep in. I picked up a cream one and a white one since they were BOGO half off! I also highly recommend their seamless underwear – they’re all I wear under workout gear and leggings!

 

Our final shopping stop was HomeGoods – my mom and I both could spend hours in here! The first thing we saw when we walked in was a display home fitness gear which was perfect. I picked up this thick yoga mat with a carrier for only $12.99 – such a steal and such great quality. I also couldn’t belive they had 10 lbs dumbbell sets for only $7.99 – I’ve never seen weight sets priced that low. They also had a good variety of resistance bands. If you’re needing to add any equipment to your home gym I highly recommend checking out HomeGoods for some great pieces!

 

We decided to stop in to Stix for a bite before heading home. We ended up grabbing a drink and taking carryout to-go since we were tired from our shopping day! Stix has an awesome deal where if you order more than $15 of carryout online you get a free California roll – so I got all of this deliciousness for only $18! I ended up ordering the Dynamite Roll, the California roll and one Crab Nigiri.

 

Overall it was a great girls’ shopping day at the Legends. I came home with so many cute activewear pieces and workout gear. It was the best motivation to get a head start on my fitness goals and to crush it in 2020!

From family functions to New Year’s Eve celebrations, keep the kiddos looking picture-perfect and Instagram-ready for all your holiday festivities with affordable fashions from Legends Outlets!

 

Our stylists scouted noteworthy yet comfortable looks for the whole crew incorporating classic holiday trends like plaid, corduroy, sequins and fleece. The best part? These pieces can be recycled into other winter looks! Who’s ready to fête?

 

Liliana

We love a traditional holiday dress, but this year, opt for a fun, versatile alternative: palazzo pants! Your little fashionista is sure to be the best dressed at the party. P.S. – these pants are cartwheel approved 😉

Get Liliana’s Look: Pair navy palazzo pants with a white sequin jacket layered over a white snowflake sweater. Complete the look with white ballerina flats and a red, plaid headband to add a pop of holiday tradition. Shop this entire outfit at H&M!

 

Wyatt

Your little dude will be ready to sleigh and play in this fun and festive outfit decorated with Santa, reindeer and elves! Not only is it comfortable, but the pants, button-down shirt and sneakers are a great investment for spring – just swap the holiday sweater for a light jacket.

Get Wyatt’s Look: Layer a festive fleece pullover over a striped button-down shirt. Pair with neutral pants and classic brown sneakers. Find this entire outfit at Carter’s | OshKosh B’gosh.

 

Brookelyn

Big sister is classic and elegant from head to toe in a twirl-worthy midi-skirt featuring a trendy bow. Don’t forget the dazzle! Gold and sparkly layered statement necklaces add a pop of glam and can be reused for other dressy occasions throughout the year.

Get Brookelyn’s Look: Pair an emerald button-down blouse with a plaid midi-skirt, black tights and black leather booties. Add some dazzle with gold accessories. Shop her entire outfit at J.Crew Factory.

 

Austin

Big brother is sporting a relaxed, yet still holiday-card approved outfit featuring a festive mix of green and red. Corduroy pants are a trendy alternative to classic chinos, and we have a feeling they will be everywhere in 2020! This look is also very versatile – the pieces can be mixed and matched with more outfits for seasons to come.

Get Austin’s Look: Wear a grey pullover over a red and black button-down shirt with forest green corduroy pants and combat boots. Find everything (expect the shoes) at Polo Ralph Lauren Factory. We snagged those from Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse.

Holiday Style for the Family

Fashion

Released 11/26/19

 

With Thanksgiving and Christmas and all the festive, family celebrations in between, it’s a fun time of year for you and yours to look the very best … and look good together! Whether your dinners and parties provide lots of photo opportunities, or if you’re planning professional photos for your holiday cards this year, we put together a stylish, cohesive palette to dress the whole crew this holiday season. Featuring popular boots, pleasing color combinations, and some of the hottest trends for every member of your family, we’ve got you Instagram-ready for the holidays! 

 

TIPS FOR CREATING A COORDINATING VIBE FOR YOUR FAMILY’S OUTFITS

Step 1: Pick a common color to feature in every outfit and don’t go overboard with it. We picked fall’s hottest take on red — a rich maroon — and gave everyone just one piece or two with the accent color to avoid looking “matchy-matchy”. 

Step 2: Stick with individuals’ style. For example, we dressed up mom and dad, but kept the kids comfy.

Step 3: Work in a unique trend for each person and don’t overthink it! We gave each family member a signature “pop” of style from the season’s hottest trendspotting! 

Step 4: Keep it practical. We love the boot trend so we dressed up a super-practical footwear idea for every member of the family, and focused on individual pieces everyone can keep in their wardrobe for the rest of the winter!  

 

DAPPER DAD

Dad’s burgundy color makes an appearance as soft, rich maroon corduroy pants and for his trend focus, we dressed up his black hiking boots and casual layers with a tweed blazer.

On Ryan: jewel-toned cotton plaid button-front oxford, oatmeal quarter-zip lightweight sweater, black and grey tweed blazer, maroon corduroy pants, all from Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Outlet; black steel grommet lace-up hiking boots from Off Broadway Shoes

 

CHIC MOM

Mom’s burgundy is anything but basic with sleek and shiny wellington boots and an ultra soft lightweight layering sweater. Her signature trend for the season is an upscale camel and cheetah combo! 

On Robin: classic crewneck sweater, soft cotton sweater blazer, wool blend pencil skirt, opaque black tights, oversize cheetah print blanket scarf, all from J. Crew Factory Outlet; Walker Atlantic wellington boots in oxblood by Sperry at Off Broadway Shoes; pave stacked cuff gold bracelet, gold fringe bib necklace, maroon beaded necklace, faceted maroon and pave stud earrings from Francesca’s

 

COZY KIDS

Big brother is keeping it chill in relaxed and comfy staples with just a hint of maroon in his layered shirts. His style focus this season is the hit puffer vest and duck boots.

On Zachary: warm camel skinny chinos, maroon and navy plaid button-down oxford, navy, beige and maroon fairy isle sweater, navy blue puffer vest, all from  J. Crew Factory Outlet; navy and brown Brewster waterproof duck boots by Sperry from Off Broadway Shoes.

Little sister is ready for after-dinner snuggles in her soft and flowy maroon top. Her pop of style comes from metallic rose gold accents, sherpa, and faux fur–a big hit this holiday season for any age! 

On Mia: burgundy empire waist blouse with metallic rose gold embroidered details, faux fur vest, coral pink ballerina jeggings, all from Old Navy; camel sherpa boots with bow detailing by Koolaburra by Ugg at Off Broadway Shoes.

Holiday Gift Guide Part 1

News

Released 11/20/19

 

The season of giving is right around the corner and as a warm-up, we did some light shopping to help you start knocking names off your list early, starting with some of the hardest-to-buy-for folks with sure-to-please ideas that will fit any budget or giving reason!

 

COMFORT AND JOY (1)

From Francesca’s: Self-care treats including a variety of facemasks, candles, bath bombs, espresso cup and cozy socks, which would be cute in a gift basket or broken up into smaller gifts — perfect for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, teacher gifts, or small sentiments for the moms of your kids’ friends. 

 

NOTE-WORTHY HOLIDAY GIFTS (2 & 4) 

From Books-A-Million: 2020 planners, stylish notebooks, fun pens and colored pencils — great for teachers, tutors, stylists, service industry pros, creatives, and anyone you know who likes putting pen to paper! 

 

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (3, 5 & 9) 

From HomeGoods: Endless options for your favorite host or hostess, a first-impression gift for new friends and family members, or the best way to show your favorite foodie some love this holiday season. Here are some gift sets we put together from HomeGoods… 

For the Chef: Variety of serving dishes and platters, including a beautiful marble tray with gold handles, a handsome walnut wooden platter, darling snowflake ramekins, and  a cookie plate for Santa.

Charcuterie Starter Kit: Hostess basket with a marble serving board, cheese knives, wooden serving spoons, coasters, artisanal olive oil, hot & spicy garlic oil, wildflower honey, apricot jam and mixed pepper seasoning.

Stock the Bar: A cocktail set with an ice bucket, moscow mule mugs and cocktail tools.

 

CROWD PLEASERS (6)

From AMC: movie tickets are a big hit because they’re consumable and allow any recipient to choose their own adventure! Tuck these in a thoughtful card or in the wrapper of your friend’s favorite full-size candy bar — a terrific idea for teachers, bus drivers, caregivers, parents, and your favorite movie buff! 

 

SWEET GESTURES (7)

From Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory: a variety of gourmet truffles in a holiday tin, either customized to the preference of your recipient or pre-selected for ultimate variety and delicacy. We love giving these specialty chocolates — ideal for teachers, hostesses, service workers, and your bestie who loves good chocolate with her dry red. 

 

ALL THAT GLITTERS (8)

From Kate Spade: Dazzling giftables from their winter collection, including a large slate blue flap continental wallet and matching tumbler, small sparkly silver bifold wallet, a classic pyramid studded Kate Spade key fob or signature spade logo keychain, and a maroon velvet makeup bag that is new in-store. In a wide range of price points, these designer ideas are perfect for stylish Secret Santas, fab grab bags, or a little something for your favorite stylist! 

 

Pro Tip: It’s the thought that counts! Start now with your expansive list of well-deserving friends, family members, professionals, etc., and get them a little something that says you’re thinking of them during the holiday season. Small, affordable gifts are easy to stock up on and tuck away until you need them. Trust me, you’ll be thankful when you don’t have to rush around looking for something to give a teacher or bring to the party you completely forgot about (oops!)

Halloween Outfits for All

Fashion

Released 10/21/19

 

Halloween is just around the corner, but don’t be scared! We have some great ideas that work with what you have in your wardrobe to build upon for the cutest — or creepiest — looks this season! Look to pop culture and current trends for your inspiration and start with wardrobe basics that you can re-wear after the trick-or-treating is over. From there, head to Spirit Halloween at Legends for your novelty and licensed apparel and accessories to complete your costume!

 

From littles to bigs, who doesn’t love the glittery magic of unicorns right now?! We started with some super trendy basics from our friends at Justice, incorporated some cold weather pieces (in case the weather gets crazy), and then added on some fun, whimsical accessories to complete this look. 

On Stella: watercolor athletic leggings, “totally magical” tee, sherpa zip-up with rose gold accents, and glitter fur-lined snow boots – all from Justice; unicorn headband with horn, hair and matching tail, fuzzy unicorn cuffs, unicorn wings, and sparkly unicorn makeup palette – all from Spirit Halloween.

 

You can never go wrong with this creepy classic! Start with dressy staples from your closet, and don’t be afraid to layer with sweaters in gothic colors like dark red or bold purple to add warmth for cool nights. From there, darkened eyes, white cheeks and even some blood around the mouth make a scary-good costume for any age! 

On Kaulib: skinny black chinos, white oxford button-down shirt, red shawl collar sweater, and leather sneakers from Old Navy; collared vampire cape, top hat, vampire brooch, vampire staff, plastic vampire fangs, and darkening eye makeup, all from Spirit Halloween. Note: we skipped the blood for a daytime, school-friendly look, but don’t forget to add it for serious trick-or-treating! 

 

Even today, Harry Potter is all the rage and we are still here for it! Whether you’re a die-hard Slytherin, or just a fan of wizardry, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the cool costume options for this pop culture phenomenon. We started with a preppy look to mimic the Hogwarts school uniform, then layered on licensed Harry Potter accessories to complete this smart ensemble. Pro tip: start by choosing your house, and build your color palette from there. We chose a classic — Gryffindor — and had a blast with the red and gold color scheme for this look. 

On Alexa: red chinos, white button-down oxford, and sweet ballet flats from Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet; striped necktie, letterman’s cardigan, round eyeglasses, magic wand, and deluxe Gryffindor robe, all from Spirit Halloween

 

NASA is having a moment and we are loving the empowered, intelligent, and creative S.T.E.M. message it’s sending to kids. With tons of logo apparel and tech-inspired wardrobe options, kids of any age will enjoy wearing their NASA costume pieces long after the candy stash has been depleted. We started with athletic and tech style basics, then added logo accessories to make this ultra-easy costume ready in a flash!

On Juston: cargo joggers, white NASA logo tee, NASA logo nylon bomber jacket, NASA logo baseball cap, and high-top sneakers – all from H&M; aviator sunglasses from Spirit Halloween. Bonus: do you have a headphone addict in your midst? Add some tech savvy headwear for extra mission-control vibes! 

 

And, who could forget our favorite four-legged friends?! Stores like T.J. Maxx carry a ton of cute outfit ideas for our best friends, and we couldn’t pass up this banana split costume for Henry! 

Cute and Cozy Pajama Sets

Fashion

Released 10/11/19

 

Fall is here and winter is on its way! What better time to indulge in some seriously comfy pajamas for those upcoming Netflix marathons and lazy weekends? Because snuggling can also be stylish, we scoured the center for this season’s cutest and coziest pajama sets…and these finds will have you saying goodbye to those old college t-shirts and sweatpants for good!

 

STYLISH

At the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than slipping into something more comfortable. And, these feminine pajamas from Victoria’s Secret are giving us all the feels. The snuggle-approved set is so silky and stylish, you might never take it off (especially with the addition of this super soft robe and cozy throw)!

 

PRACTICAL

Known for the softest cottons around, Jockey dons the perfect pajama staples – great for layering, mixing and matching all season long. You’ll want to do nothing but curl up by the fire in these festive plaid jammies, complete with impossibly cozy fleece bottoms and super soft waffle shirts!

 

LOUNGE-WORTHY 

Not only is this coordinating knit set unbelievably soft, but the subtle stripes are a trendy upgrade to any loungewear. From Netflix to naps, this versatile option from Loft Outlet won’t have you embarrassed to answer the door or talk outside with your neighbors!

 

FESTIVE

Who doesn’t like a little bit of sparkle? Upgrade your traditional sleepwear with something more sophisticated, yet still fun – like this soft navy set from Soma Intimates. The sparkly snowflakes and plush, glittery robe will make every night feel like a slumber party!

Seven Staples to Get You From Fall All the Way Thr...

Fashion

Released 9/26/19

 

Fall is such a fun time of year to update your wardrobe. With the ever-changing weather, each day is a new opportunity to layer and get creative. As the temperatures (finally) start to lower and the nights get cooler, nothing is more exciting than scooping up some transitional pieces that will work through the winter and add some updated colors to your closet! Here are our favorites… 

 

ANYTHING-BUT-BASIC BLAZER

A chic high-quality blazer works perfectly for an early fall outer layer and a tailored look for later in the season. We love the latest colors from Ann Taylor Loft, including this neutral toned glen plaid with tortoise buttons and the classic camel with brass buttons. While it’s warm, cuff the sleeves and wear yours over a camisole with cropped slacks and a breezy open back mule loafer. As temperatures cool, consider pairing your blazer with jeans and a vintage tee or even a fitted cashmere mock-neck sweater and booties! 

 

FUNCTIONAL — AND FASHIONABLE! — SCARVES

What works as an accessory this fall becomes a must-have this winter when you opt for a scarf that mixes trendy prints with cozy construction. We love Forever 21 Red’s huge assortment of fall and winter scarves, which are knitted for maximum warmth, and designed for maximum style. Try a preppy herringbone print like this one to add a sophisticated layer to your work look now, and then wear it with your prettiest pea coat this winter. For extra style points, pair a cheetah print over a light bomber jacket when the fall winds pick up.

 

MOCK TURTLENECK

There’s something so stylish about a fitted mock-turtleneck! From the slimming effect of the long sleeves and high neck to the totally practical warmth they provide, nothing says fall like a turtle! Forever 21 Red has tons including this ribbed mustard mock and this super soft burgundy option! Tuck into a pair of high-waisted skinny or relaxed fit jeans this fall, then add under layers of soft thermals and button-downs this winter. Pro tip for the turtle: try pulling hair back away from your face in a clip or pony and adding a statement earring as a way to elevate this conservative cut!

 

THE ULTIMATE COZY SWEATER

From high-pile knits to ultra soft merino and cashmere influences, and every rib and bauble and weave in between, we are calling 2019-2020 the winter of the sweater. Start now with a lightweight knit in a beautiful fall hue over a pair of light-weight cropped jeans or even a midi skirt! When the weather gets serious, mix your prints by layering any sweater over warm flannel or denim button-down shirts. Francesca’s has a great assortment, including this fun bordeaux and burnt orange cheetah crop, and this adorable beige sweater with heart details on the sleeves.

 

ATHLEISURE 

Athleisure is still having its major moment and we are here for it! I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of being comfortable while actually looking put together at the same time?  Whether you’re actually hitting the gym, running errands or experiencing all the fun activities around town, this look never fails – and it all starts with the leggings. Nike Outlet has a huge selection of leggings and tights that smooth, flatter & stay put; perfect for any marathon — whether it’s a holiday fundraiser run or just Netflixing on the couch!  We love these pumpkin-colored seamless leggings the most. For early fall, top your leggings off with a pullover which will provide all the warmth you need until winter arrives. Then, consider layering your teddy bear soft pullover like this one we got at Express under an all-weather running jacket to complete the look and keep you warm on your way!

 

THE ORIGINAL LAYERING SWEATER + JACKET COMBO

If Tommy Hilfiger didn’t invent the lightweight cable knit sweater, they made it famous with their signature logo on the chest and their rainbow assortment of colors. Each year they change up the look just a little and add fresh new hues to their collection. This year is no exception, and the Tommy Hilfiger Outlet is currently rolling out multiple colors and styles for everyone’s favorite cable. We adore this warm oatmeal hue but you can never go wrong with a pop of color (especially red in Chief’s country, are we right?) Don’t forget to layer with the classic Tommy Hilfiger jean jacket for a timeless fall and winter look. Start with cuffed sleeves and a brightly colored chino and finish the year off with boots, black denim and a fun scarf to enjoy these pieces throughout the seasons!

 

LIGHTWEIGHT LEATHER THAT LASTS

When it comes to fall, nothing is more timeless and trendy at the same time as a staple leather jacket. Wilson’s Leather has a myriad of ultra-high quality leather jackets, including these lightweight options in all the hottest colors, like hunter green, blush pink, and of course, black. For fall, leave unzipped and work the leather alone over a tank or your favorite floral dress. As things chill out, start experimenting with layers underneath to add warmth to your natural wind-breaker. We love the look of a zippered hoodie peeking out the neckline of these sleek styles. A fuzzy sherpa-style jacket can also add unlimited warmth and a soft and cozy balance to your tough exterior. 

 

BOTTOM LINE: Look for all the latest colors in some of your go-to styles to make this fall feel fresh and new. Then as we get closer to the holidays, start piling on the layers! It’s a great way to showcase multiple pieces at a time and it’s truly your best bet against our blustery midwest winter! 

Denim Trends for All this Fall

Fashion

Released 9/23/19

 

For a middle school-friendly denim outfit, look no further than the staple high-waisted skinny jean. And don’t be intimidated! Today’s denim technology features shapewear-like construction and lots of lifting and smoothing features. But for a classic, low-maintenance look for your teen, head to American Eagle, where the super hi-rise cut comes in a ton of washes with lots of great options to wear on top.

 

 

On Kaylin: Super hi-rise skinny jeggings in brilliant blue wash, chartreuse green long-sleeve waffle tee, cozy cropped cheetah print jacket and black heeled boots from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

For a slightly more worn-in, grown-up look – stick with the classics!  Levi’s Outlet features all the original denim cuts plus fun new updates and washes that work for today’s modern aesthetic. We love pairing more relaxed cuts with fitted tees to provide a flattering look with a nod to the 90s.

 

 

On Sydney: Levi’s 501 mid-rise light-wash denim with a straight leg, a fitted black and white stripe tee, and a pair of white grunge boots from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For day-to-night style, go for some of the latest colored denims or super dark washes. We’re loving the rock ‘n’ roll appeal of faded black denim mixed with animal print. You can never go wrong with a dark wash that is easy to dress up for day or night. Express has a great variety of flattering fits and trendy washes to choose from.

 

 

On Deijah: Faded black high-waisted stretch denim with a raw hem, an ultra soft cheetah print sweater and chunky black ankle boots from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For grown-up style that’s ahead of the curve, go for the denim-on-denim trend and do it now! We loved the look of dark jeans and a well-worn chambray top this spring and summer, but for fall, take the all-denim look a step further and match your blues! Everyone’s favorite denim creator, Baldwin, has an outlet store now and there’s never been a better time to invest in locally designed, totally designer denim.

 

 

On Olivia: Therese high-rise classic straight leg denim with a cropped hem, matching medium-wash denim jacket, fitted white ribbed tee, and a pair of trendy white Fila sneakers from Off Broadway Shoes.

WARM UP YOUR SOFT GOODS GAME

Another easy way to update your home is by swapping out soft goods like pillows and throws. Think of them as accessories for your couch! Look for cozy fabrics, textured knits, autumnal hues like burnt sienna, butterscotch, nutty browns, and trendy ochre.

 

 

 

Pictured here: chenille cable knit blanket by DKNY, classic plaid button-front pillow, jacquard pumpkins pillow, all from T.J. Maxx.

 

If the colors of the trees aren’t your faves, look for more unique colorways when updating your soft goods for fall! We are still loving blush, rose gold, bronze, beige and cool turquoises!

Fall Transitional Pieces for Back-to-School

Fashion

Released 8/27/19

Our favorite back-to-school looks include lots of layering pieces to wear all year, featuring earthy jewel tones and vintage ’90s throw-backs. Take a look at how we dressed our crew! 

 

COOL BLUE LAYERS FOR LITTLE GUYS

A lightweight, long-sleeve tee is great for early fall. Pair it with a zip-up hoodie for cool mornings and evenings as a jacket. Eventually it can be worn as an all-day sweatshirt layer this winter. Dark denim and neutral blue sneakers will look cool all year! 

 

On Adam (clothes from J.Crew, shoes from Off Broadway):

Sky-blue heather and white striped henley

Blue-hued camo zip-up hoodie

Dark wash jeans from Crew Cuts 

Two-tone blue on blue Vans sneakers 

 

 

 

 

 

FLANNEL FOR THE FASHION-FORWARD TWEENS

Plaid is back in a big way and we are loving soft flannel for a transitional shirt that works as a stand-alone top, or as a layer as the weather cools down. Dark stretchy jeggings look great in all seasons and a transitional bootie is the best. 

 

On Madison (clothes and shoes from Justice): High-low flannel with pearl snaps and a raw hem,

Dark wash skinny jeggings

Grey heeled booties with studded spat details

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BACK TO BASICS FOR THE BIG BOYS

Update his look this school year with traditional staples in the latest washes and colors. Dark hunter green tones are everywhere, and the fun medium wash of denim is a cool new take. Top it all off with a cool trucker jacket that works as a lightweight coat now and as a cool layered look in the winter. 

 

On Cayo (clothes from Gap Factory, shoes from Converse): 

Heather grey henley with hunter green ringer detailing and green sleeves

Medium wash athletic cut skinny jeans

Khaki trucker jacket

Classic white Chuck Taylor All-Stars 

 

 

 

 

LOTS OF LAYERS FOR THE LADIES

Throw it back to the nineties with denim skirts, ruby and other jewel-toned ribbed tees, and combat boots! As cooler weather approaches, add on opaque tights under skirts, and layer on the fashion with button-down shirts, cardigans and jackets.

 

On Jennaka (clothes from Aeropostale, shoes from Off Broadway):

Distressed black denim mini skirt

Striped fitted ribbed tee with neckline cut-out details

Vintage-wash chambray pearl-snap shirt

Glittery black patent Doc Marten combat boots from Off Broadway

Teacher Basics for Back-to-School

Fashion

Released 8/20/19

 

We did some shopping and came up with these teachers’ pets of style for the coming school year, including pieces teachers can mix, match and wear all year!

 

Designer Sneakers

A cute logo emblazoned sneaker like this slip-on by Michael Kors Outlet works all day from meetings to recess. Dial up your look and pair with a shift dress or chinos – dial it down and pair with jeans for casual Friday! 

 

Amazingly comfy pants 

These Marveluxe cropped trousers from Chico’s Outlet have a silky smooth and stretchy construction you have to feel to believe. They come in a ton of trendy colors and will feel like you’re wearing your favorite stretchy pajama pants while you work. For active teachers, wearability and comfort can’t be beat with these wrinkle-free pants for a tailored look.

 

A not-so-basic bag

What teacher doesn’t need a stylish bag to carry all their supplies and papers? Bonus points for this Kate Spade bag because of its built-in soft computer sleeve for the latest technology. We love this one in burgundy, blush and beige…but the other versions are great too!

 

Staple suiting separates

We started with a blazer, because Banana Republic Factory has some of the best, but we couldn’t stop there! The iron-free button downs and chic tailored cropped pants make for a complete look that can be mixed and matched all year because of the huge variety of colors and prints available!

 

Treat yourself & visit Legends Outlets to stock up on all your wardrobe basics for this school year!

Back-to-School Style for Kids & Teens

Fashion

Released 7/29/19

 

Believe it or not, it’s that time of year already! School supply lists are available and the back-to-school sales have started! We gathered up our favorite looks for school kids to help inspire your next shopping trip! 

 

For the Littles …

 

Delanie is wearing a super cute layered look from the Gap Outlet, featuring trendy olive green floral jeggings, and a bright mustard yellow logo tee with fun reversible sequins. For elementary school, it’s all about sparkle and shine, so we also went with some glittery pink Converse sneakers from the Converse Outlet and layered on a classic denim jacket from Gap Outlet that she can wear as a trendy layer or a light jacket this fall. Delanie’s lunch box is a fun emoji print Nike thermal pack from the Nike Factory with hot pink trim and easy wipe-able fabrication—a must for all lunches!

Bryson is wearing a fun take on a preppy look with a classic logo polo shirt and khakis from the Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet. We love this as an option for kiddos who need uniform basics and for a classic look to start the school year out on the right foot. We made sure of that by completing his outfit with a shoe cool yellow and navy leather high top sneaker from the Converse Outlet and a fun patchwork Polo Outlet hoodie that will work as a warm layer in air conditioned classrooms and on the playground this fall. Bryson’s lunchbox is a royal blue Nike thermal roll from the Nike Factory, adding some athletic vibes to his school time look. 

 

For the Big Kids …

 

When it comes to middle school and high school, athleisure rules. You can’t be too comfy when it comes to sitting in class all day and bonus points if you’re dressed ready for hitting the gym after school. Aiden’s athleisure look is from the Nike Factory. This fall, you can’t go wrong with a jogger and we loved these lightweight sleek ones for the warmer weather at the start of the semester. We paired them with a grey dri-fit muscle tee and a trendy black hoodie with camo print on the sleeves and hood. Ultra modern sock construction sneakers with gum soles make Aiden ready for PE and physics in the same day. His backpack is from the Converse Outlet and features classic canvas construction and plenty of room for books and supplies to get him through the year. 

Casual is queen for middle and high school looks, and Jada is proof that laid back style can be beautiful. She’s wearing white skinny Rockstar jeggings from the Old Navy Outlet and and a breezy linen blend lavender tunic tied in a trendy knot. We layered on a fun cropped hoodie with a floral logo print from the Converse Outlet and love the white-on-white minimal look of her outfit. We elevated Jada’s casual vibe with rose colored platform sneakers from the Converse Outlet and a complimentary pink and olive backpack from the Nike Factory, making her school look as comfy as it is chic!

Pro tip for back-to-school shopping: hit up Legends Outlets early and often to catch all the sales and make some fun memories with your family as you prepare to hit the books this fall!

 

College Prep Must-Haves

News

Released 7/19/19

College students are packing up and heading for school sooner than anyone else! Between tuition and books, clothes and rent, it’s definitely the time to share some budget-friendly bonding with your biggest kid. Take a daytrip to Legends to look for these must-have items for any collegiate heading to school!

 

MODERN DORM DECOR

Make your residence hall feel like home with unique, hand-picked decor, organization, and necessities. We found all that and more at Home Goods! From novelty to super-chic, the options are endless and were surprised at the variety of styles (say bye-bye to boring towels)! Here are our absolute must-haves for feathering your college nest: a super plushy, warm and fuzzy throw for lounging like this one from Calvin Kelin; sleek organizational totes to keep your stuff where it belongs like these cool watercolor ones; a mid-century task lamp for late night study sessions and bedside reading without keeping your roommate up; a to-do list organizer you won’t hate to look at like this modern frameless marble finish dry erase board; cheery towels in your favorite color like this navy windowpane set by Mind on Design; and last but not least, something cheeky and green to brighten up your space, like a fun little faux cactus in a brightly colored pot! 

 

BET ON A BLAZER

Listen, it’s time to get yourself a grown-up blazer. Whether you’re thinking of internships or part-time job interviews or even real grown-up jobs or post-grad school interviews, the time to invest in a staple of your adult wardrobe is now. And nothing says grown man/woman style like Banana Republic. We love this light-weight blended navy blue two-button blazer from the mens’ section because it will work with denim for a more business casual vibe, or super sharp with a pair of chinos for a preppy look. While you’re at it, consider getting matching navy suit pants for a head-to-toe dressed-for-success look! 

In the women’s section, we fell for this sleek, light grey fitted blazer. Pair it with black denim and a graphic tee for a trendy casual look or layer it over a business casual dress for a put-together outfit. Don’t forget matching slim-cut pants to complete the full suited look, which you can totally customize to your style with fun shirts and accessories. Since you’re shopping at the BR Outlet, go ahead and get yourself the matching pencil skirt too for a full workweek capsule wardrobe!

 

COLLEGE SURVIVAL GEAR

In a lot of ways, college is like camping. We found SO many handy life hacks for college kids at Eddie Bauer. For most people, space is limited, so pack smart with handy stuff like these packing pouches and compression bags. A phone wrist wallet works great for exercising on campus or just making the long trek to class. To stay hydrated, pack your favorite water bottle with you wherever you go. We like this white one but there are tons of designs and colors ready to go with you! And last but not least, we are also loving double-duty items like this cool 7-in-1 multi-tool and wallet combo! Be sure to check out their huge display in the center of the store to see more camping and college essentials like coolers, backpacks, lights and mounts for your bike, and even canteens and flasks!

 

GROWN-UP GEAR

Don’t forget about class! You’ll be hauling your books, notepads, computers and more to and from class every single day so you might as well look good doing it! 

From Wilson’s we love this versatile convertible canvas bag with genuine leather flaps, straps and details. It functions both as a messenger style bag and as a backpack with thick, supportive straps. For students with international desires, do not scrimp on your RFID protected passport protector; we love this sleek brown leather one from Wilson’s that matches the leather detailing on the backpack perfectly. 

If femme is more your style, march right into Kate Spade now because their backpacks come in every size and all the hottest colors for fall. We loved this mid-sized backpack because it can hold a 13” laptop while still looking sleek and chic! Speaking of chic, Kate Spade Outlet’s signature fall floral is this beautiful floral print with mauve, berry and turquoise watercolor details that we can’t get enough of. This laptop sleeve is a must-have for sliding that expensive electronic in and out of your bag every day!

 

BONUS TIP

While you’re at Legends you’re just seconds away from great school shopping spots like T.J. Maxx, Target, and Sam’s Club so make the most of the fun location and get your gear fast and for less!

Summer Style for Every Occasion

Fashion

Released 7/10/19

 

Ah, summer in Kansas City. Sometimes sweltering, sometimes stormy, always fun and always so much to do! Legends Outlets stylist, Sarah Findley, breaks summer down into her top five favorite looks and where to wear them this season!

 

MY PICNIC PICKS

Summer is the season for outdoor eating! Whether it’s brunch on a patio, family reunions, or a backyard BBQ, my favorite picnic look comes head-to-toe from J. Crew Factory. I wear this breezy cotton-linen striped midi skirt with everything and sub it for shorts when I’m feeling like kicking my outfit up a notch without sacrificing comfort (hello elastic waistband for second helpings of pasta salad and watermelon)! I tuck in or tie cute graphic tees like this brunch top, or a sweet v-neck like this J. Crew Mercantile basic tee in brilliant poppy—a fresh take on pink and a popular color this summer! I love to mix prints and could wear these Zoe faux calf hair d’orsay flats with everything. If I want to dress it up a bit, I opt for my go-to canvas espadrille wedges, which offer some height without sinking your heels into your neighbor’s yard! Layer on chic summer accessories like this oversize tortoise shell link necklace and a timeless straw fedora, and you’re ready for any outdoor party!

MY SUMMER PARTY DRESS

For more dressed-up affairs, I always head to my favorite femme dress spot, the Express Factory Outlet. This summer, bright rompers are the new LBD for your bachelorette party, winery tour, or day-to-night party look. I love this grassy tropical print on a bold berry background and the off-the-shoulder cut and flowy sleeves totally make this anything but your basic one-piece. With so many fun colors in the print, I’m always swapping out bright tassel earrings and eye makeup choices to change up this outfit. If I’m transitioning my look from day to night festivities, I always go with black accessories, like these minimalist strappy block-heel sandals by Express Factory Outlet. A black floppy straw hat and plastic rimmed shades give sun protection and style points at the same time!

MY POOL VIBE

For me, my pool look has to be functional and fashionable. One-piece suits are everywhere this summer, and I don’t hate it! I love this entire look from Forever 21 Red, featuring an earthy olive deep-v one-piece with high cut legs. The color is super popular and goes with anything, but I loved it with a pair of creamy peach linen shorts and a long flowy palm leaf kimono. I seriously love this as an outfit AND a pool cover-up! A low-maintenance pair of slides with rose gold faux leather straps are easy to kick off poolside and also work great for a long walk on the beach (or from the parking lot to the waterpark with the kiddos). I do NOT skip on sun protection so I loved this flat brim straw hat with mauve tassels. A basic pair of oversize rose gold hoops complete this look for me and I’ll feel cool whether I’m in or out of the water!

MY PATIO PARTY LOOK

Summer is also super fun for all the outdoor festivals, patio drinks, and festive events! I like to look summery, while having the layers and style I need to make an outfit work for me in any setting. If I’m heading to First Fridays, block parties, or concerts, I’ll add my boho personality to a basic white tank like this one by tying it in a knot and adding some awesome, colorful, exotic palazzo pants. I love this outfit from Francesca’s because it’s creative and fun, while including some major style points like the flowy legs, trendy mustard color scheme, and turquoise jewelry. A gauzy lace kimono with bell sleeves adds a layer of style without adding any unnecessary warmth for this steamy season, and a laser cut clutch with gold chain strap allows me to tote my money, phone, and—most importantly—shine blotting paper with me in the Midwest heat. I hide a pair of Birkenstocks under the wide legs of my palazzo pants so that I can stay on my feet all day and night!

MY DAILY UNIFORM

What about the day-to-day summer slog? Let’s be honest … most of your summer is spent in and out of the car, stores, and restaurants! For errands, appointments, and lunch with friends, I keep my summer look minimal and breathable. My go-to outfit this summer has been this spaghetti strap romper from H&M (it has pockets!). I love it because it’s so cool and lightweight, featuring an elastic cinched waist and the most delicate straps with a perfect neckline in front and back … and because I can trade out my accessories to make it a different look while wearing it on repeat all summer. Straw canteen purses work great for lunches on the go, heels and wedges dress it up for nights out, and colorful beaded earrings and bracelets spice up the color palette. That said, my absolute default version is styled with leather sandals like Birkenstocks or these cute knock-offs from Off Broadway that feature a trendy white outsole, oversize tortoise shell earrings from H&M, my trusty J. Crew Factory straw fedora, and a big woven bag with tassels from H&M that’s cute enough to be a purse but big enough to tote contents for meetings and errands!

 

 

Festive Fourth of July Fashions

Fashion

Released 7/1/19

 

Independence Day is right around the corner and it’s a totally fun excuse to get festive with your look! We did a little shopping and picked up some great outfits for the whole family, focusing on wearability, comfort and value for this busy summer holiday!

Katie’s look works great for teens and moms, with a focus on fashion and just a subtle nod to the red, white and blue. We picked a pair of distressed high-waisted skinny jeans from the Gap Outlet and paired them with a basic cream tank featuring spaghetti straps, neck tie detail, and lightweight cotton blend construction. We love this summer basics look and she can wear it for any casual event she has during the hot weather! For some extra style, we layered on a long flowy kimono from Maurice’s, which we love for its breezy fabric and handkerchief-print inspired red, white, blue, and mauve color scheme. Accessories like a dainty layering necklace set and navy tassel earrings from H&M work for the holiday but can also look great with lots of other looks. To round out her wearable style, we went with some mid-height espadrille wedges by Tommy Hilfiger from Off Broadway Shoes.

Reece is nailing tween fashion with lots of sparkle and shine from Justice. These short overalls are so fabulously patriotic with their mermaid sequins in blue stars on one leg and red and white stripes on the other! Underneath we layered a white and blue tie-dye tunic that will look great over shorts or even leggings later in the summer. We topped off her look with shiny red, white and blue sunglasses from Justice, but there were tons to choose from, including barretts, headbands, jewelry, fanny packs and more! Classic red Converse low-top All-Stars from Off Broadway complete her all-American look.

Juston’s dad style game is strong in one of our favorite classic American brands — Levi’s. We started with a medium wash, athletic taper 541 denim which he can wear year-round. Then we added a vintage inspired logo tee, with a distressed finish. These come in every color but we went with the classic for this holiday. Over that we layered a fun madras plaid short-sleeve button up so that his overall vibe is low-key patriotic, not cheesy. Retro white and blue Nike high-tops from Off Broadway add some fun to his look and will keep him on his feet all day and night during the festivities!

Wyatt packs a lot of style in a little package with his patriotic outfit. A souvenir-inspired New York tee from H&M shows off his all-American spirit, while trendy Bermuda length denim shorts from H&M add some serious style to the look. For the littles, the Fourth of July is a fun time to add a little novelty so we went to Carter’s/OshKosh and looked through their super fun assortment of patriotic clothes for kids. We were excited when we found this darling short-sleeve button-down shirt that features hotdogs and popsicles! Little red Puma sneakers from Off Broadway feature white and navy detailing as well as easy velcro closures to help little brother keep up with the rest of the crew on the busy day!

From picnics to parades, then fireworks to festivities, Legends Outlets has 100+ stores ready to inspire your patriotic style this Fourth of July!

Summer Style Must-Haves

Fashion

Released 6/11/19

 

Summer is a fun time to play with your personal style because it’s typically a more laid back time of the year with a lot more fun happening all around you! From downtown to down time, Legends stylist, Sarah Findley, shares her top five fashion must-haves for the hottest season!

For me, summer style is all about wearability (and breathability–hello midwest heatwave!). I look for breezy fabrics, lots of neutrals, stuff I can add jewelry to in order to dress it up without having to worry about extra layers, and stuff I can dress down for a backyard BBQ without having to feel like I’m rolling up in my pajama shorts and boring t-shirt. Bonus points: my five faves for summer all work great together so I find myself re-wearing parts of all these looks without having to repeat an outfit exactly.

 

THE CANADIAN TUXEDO Denim skirts are back and their reincarnation features lengths, shapes and washes fit for any age bracket. My favorite way to wear them is with a nod to the infamous all-denim “Canadian tuxedo,” by adding a chambray button down! Worn open over a fun graphic tee or buttoned up and tucked in, the look is effortlessly cool and very in style this year. I love the selection of denim mini skirts at The Buckle, and I wear my chambray shirt in perfect fit from the J. Crew Factory store all the time!

 

 

 

 

MIDI DRESSES & SKIRTS

This year’s response to maxi dresses is the midi-length. Skimming your calf, this flattering length can look casual or dressed up. For a dressier vibe, look for a silky slip dress like the ones at J. Crew Factory store and add lots of delicate gold jewels from Francesca’s. For a more casual look, try one of the soft twist-back options at the Banana Republic Factory store! I love the slit up the legs on this one and the breezy flow of the dress. Read on to see what shoes I’m pairing mine with …  

 

 

RETRO SNEAKERS

While nothing beats a cute flat sandal, lots of influencers are trading theirs in for classic sneakers this summer. This is great news if you have lots of walking in store for your summer vacation! Consider retro looks like the Nike Cortez and Reebok’s Classic running shoe if you’re looking for a traditional sneaker. Or, you can go with my personal fave and get and old school, shell-toe Adidas Superstar! I’m loving the updated colors like mauve, rose gold, and yellow gold. I’ve seen these everywhere but I nabbed my white Superstars with gold stripes from the Adidas Store and wear them daily with shorts, jeans and–yes–even dresses!

 

 

JUMPSUITS

If you are looking for a one-piece, go-anywhere, on-trend outfit, get yourself a jumpsuit. Dress them up with heels and jewels. Dress them down with sandals or sneakers. Whoever invented this chic garment seriously had busy fashion-forward gals in mind. Everyone got this memo so you can find them anywhere, in a variety of styles, fabrics and lengths. Some feature saucy cut-outs and some are more tailored and modest. I’m loving the latter and had no trouble finding one I loved at the Express outlet! Bonus points that this one features my summer’s signature chambray construction.

 

 

 

PLATFORM ESPADRILLES

Everyone’s favorite wedges have received an easy-going update this summer in the form of a thick, flat midsole and I’m loving it. The resulting shoe is everywhere and makes it super easy to add some height to your outfit without breaking your ankles. This is seriously a backyard party or garden wedding game changer!  Check out Francesca’s for a cute variety, as well as Off Broadway for tons of fun colorways. Cuff your jeans above the ankle to show off this trendy take on a beachy fave!

 

Summer Festival Fashions

Fashion

Pair a bralette or crop tank with light, flowing palazzo pants, made with breathable fabric perfect for hot days and breezy nights. We’re all about finding versatile pieces you can wear season after season. Wear the bralette under overalls or with high-waisted shorts, and style the palazzo pants with a chunky sweater in autumn!

Colorful Crochet: This look from American Eagle is the ultimate summer trend! It’s slightly bohemian, slightly 70’s and 100 percent festival perfection. Pair this colorful crochet halter top with paperbag denim shorts for an outfit as comfy as it is a statement. Store all your festival necessities in a woven straw shoulder bag, the IT bag of the season (and a versatile wardrobe staple). Add some fringe slides, and you’re good to go!

Father’s Day Gift Guide

News

Released 5/28/19

 

What do you get a great dude like dad? The sky is the limit, obviously, when you’re trying to show an important guy in your life your appreciation for all the time, support, and tough love he’s shown you or your kiddos over the years! We took a trip to do some shopping for our favorite father figures. Take a look at our top five gift ideas for Father’s Day this year!

 

TREAT HIM TO SOMETHING SAVORY

What do you get the guy who has everything? One word: consumables. And the hottest food-themed gift these days is created with your favorite carnivore in mind. We love the build-your-own-box of jerkies at Beef Jerky Outlet! From grass-fed beef to wild game, with every spice and flavor known to man, this huge meat shop is the perfect stop to make and has other fun stuff as well like novelty shirts and free samples!

 

HELP HIM SHOW OFF HIS SMARTS BEYOND BOOKS

We can’t skip Books-A-Million when we have a gift-giving opportunity! And this time around, they did not disappoint. They make it easy with great selections of books, bibles and gift items for men of faith; maps, atlases, guidebooks and survival kits for the outdoor dad; as well as hilarious “dad joke” books, novelty items and gag gifts for the goofy dad. Don’t forget BAM’s enormous selection of best-selling titles, including the nonfiction, history and literature your dad will love to read.

 

GET HIM IN TOUCH WITH HIS VACATION VIBES

Whether you’re taking a big trip with dad this summer or not, check out the surprisingly laid-back looks at Brooks Brothers Factory Store! We are loving the tropical print button downs, beach bags, and everything with pineapples on it!

 

 

 

HELP HIM BE FASHION FORWARD

If you’re looking to treat dad, consider investing in a sleek designer item from one of Legends Outlets’ luxe brands like the Coach Outlet. You can make a big impression on him without breaking the bank with Coach’s handsome line of travel accessories that fit inside your budget and inside a gift bag! We are loving their luxurious assortment of leather valet trays and travel accessories. Our favorite is the large zipper pouch that comes in a ton of manly prints and would work great inside his gym bag or suitcase!

 

TAKE HIM ON A DAD-DATE

Never underestimate the thoughtfulness of giving someone you love the gift of your time together. Bonus points if it includes food and drinks! Our favorite spots to eat, drink and be merry with dad this summer include Granite City for their high-end food and stellar brewery, Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque for their quintessential KC BBQ experience, Stix for their pan-Asian teppanyaki grill, sushi and Chinese cuisine, and Yard House for their patio seating and self-proclaimed world’s largest selection of draft beer. Surprise dad with a day or night out or let him pick the place. Either way, you’re both sure to have a blast!

 

Whatever you decide to do for dad, do it with style when you pick a thoughtful gift or gesture!

Tips for Outfitting Your Grad

Fashion

Released 5/15/19

 

Graduation season is in full swing, and it’s a great time of year to update your style for all the photo ops, parties, and fun! Here are our top three tips for outfitting your grad, plus our favorite looks for the festivities!

  1. Wearability: Consider styles you can re-wear after the big day and get more bang for your buck, especially if you’re considering a suit or a statement piece. These will serve you well post-grad!
  2. Timelessness: Graduation is a day full of photo ops. Be true to your style but consider choices that you can be proud of after the flash!
  3. Neutrals: Many graduation caps and gowns are white. Consider a mellow print or a neutral hue (majorly in style this spring anyway!) that won’t clash with your school colors or show through your thin robe.

 

Austin is sporting some serious suiting, all compliments of Brooks Brothers Factory Store. For guys, graduation is an excellent opportunity to grab some investment pieces that they will wear for years to come. We opted for a lightweight suit in a classic navy color and white oxford shirt. For some fun, we added trendy salmon colored accessories, including the age-old Brooks Brothers signature “Rep” striped tie, a cheery floral pocket square, and striped socks. A cognac Brooks Brothers belt and matching oxford loafers by Steve Madden from Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse tie the look together. For graduation and beyond, visit Brooks Brothers for expert styling and ready-to-wear looks that look ultra tailored for more than half off retail prices!

 

Taylor is staying neutral with her graduation look–a suggestion we make for all grads who may be wearing a white or light-colored cap and gown this season. We loved this tiered white dress from Francesca’s, featuring a modest trapeze neckline, cinched natural waist, and a beautiful lace racerback. Accessories are abound at Francesca’s, and we had no trouble picking out lots of beautiful, neutral sparkles to dress up this look, including a trendy fringe necklace with matching earrings, and an arm party with beads and crystals. For footwear, we opted for a low ankle strap sandal by Steve Madden from Off Broadway, which is in style but classic, completing an outfit that will stand the test of time in all the photo ops graduation provides!

 

Jada’s laidback look features an of-the-moment seersucker apron dress from J. Crew Factory. We love the striping and square neckline for a chic yet casual look for middle school graduation, or for attending older siblings’ big day events. We added personality to Jada’s graduation look with some trendy mustard yellow Franco Sarto platform espadrilles from Off Broadway and trendy matching tassel earrings from Francesca’s. A gold tone metallic fringe necklace adds some edgy flair and is just one more way you can add style to your cap and gown look!

 

Parker is keeping it casual for graduation, wearing this season’s guy staples: tailored skinny fit chinos and a short-sleeve button-down shirt. We got these from American Eagle Outfitters, where there are tons of colorways for both pieces and the sizes start extra small for tween kids. This button-down features a preppy polka dot pattern, but options range from basic to beachy right now, and it’s a perfect shirt to wear all summer by adding a graphic tee and leaving it unbuttoned after graduation. A pair of navy blue leather Steve Madden oxford sneakers provide a put together vibe while outfitting Parker to play after the festivities!

 

So, whether you’re a graduate or just in it for the mints and cake, take a quick trip to Legends Outlets to outfit your whole family for the season!

 

 

 

Graduation Gift Guide

News

Released 5/13/19

 

Graduation season is here in full force, and it’s such a fun reason to give gifts. Let the excitement, the inspiration, the celebration, and the hope for the future inspire your gift-giving this spring and head to Legends Outlets for great ideas for your grad that fit your budget.

Here are some of our favorite ideas …

 

GIFTS FOR ANY ADVENTURE

For fun, unique, and affordable gifts for any grad, stop by Francesca’s. We loved the world map to-go coffee mugs and fun celebratory champagne flutes for more grown-up grads. They also have a great variety of travel and adventure-inspired jewelry sets, like matching compass rose earrings and necklaces, mountains on gold chains, and lots of other fun gems that come on beautiful display cards with inspirational messages.

GIFTS TO COMMEMORATE THE BIG DAY

For a truly special graduation gift, head to one of the only area jewelry outlets at Legends Outlets, like Kay, Helzberg or Zales. Each has a wide assortment of beautiful jewelry and watches perfect for any graduate. We stopped in at Kays and found this on-trend, gorgeous gold bar necklace and this ultra sleek Citizen watch. Consider engraving either with your graduate’s initials, their graduation date, or something more creative like the GPS coordinates of their home if they’re getting ready to move away!

 

GIFTS TO INVEST IN FOR THEIR FUTURE

If your grad is ready to ditch the backpack, you can’t go wrong with a tote or briefcase. Wilson’s Leather is our favorite place to shop for investment pieces like this because they have a huge variety of shapes, sizes and colors at steep discounts. Our favorites include this day-to-night tote in a versatile taupe shade and this transit briefcase in a deep brown shade–both of which feature super soft, high quality leather.

 

GIFTS TO INSPIRE THEIR JOURNEY

If you’re looking for something sentimental, make sure to check out Books-A-Million for their large assortment of journals. From whimsical to sophisticated, they have tons of lovely options. Consider picking up one that reminds of your grad, then jot a message to them inside the cover! While you’re at BAM, check out other gift ideas like spiritual books, cookbooks, post-grad test prep materials and supplies, and even fun dorm room decor!

 

GIFTS FOR THE GOING-SOMEWHERE GRAD

Whether your grad is moving away to college or moving up in the workforce, never underestimate the power of a gift card! Legends Outlets gift cards can be purchased in any denomination and used at any of the more-than 100 retailers, restaurants, and entertainment venues at the mall. Consider sticking one in a cool water bottle from Under Armour, a cute wallet from Charming Charlie, or even inside the case of a pair of sunglasses from Sunglass Hut for a fun “The Future’s So Bright” message!

 

 

Applebees debuts new look

News

Released 5/3/19

On Friday, May 3, Applebee’s Speedway location reopened with a fresh new look and feel centered around the neighborhood and contemporary dining experiences. The renovated Applbee’s location includes new design features and a custom mural focused on the Kansas City, Kansas neighborhood.

This remodel is Applebee’s first big step in rekindling the local feel of the Applebee’s brand, kicking off in the city that the first Applebee’s franchise was born. Much of the wall décor focuses on the local area, including a large hand-painted mural representing the Kansas City, Kansas community. Applebee’s is teaming up with the local arts organization InterUrban ArtHouse to bring the mural to life, featuring talented local artists. The mural is set to be installed and unveiled to the community after the Applebee’s Speedway’s renovations are complete, by early summer.

To give Applebee’s a fresh new look and feel all around, local contractor GCStrategies gave the interior new paint, ceilings, dining room flooring and light fixtures over tables. Additionally, the restaurant introduced new chairs, barstools and tabletops, as well as reupholstered booths. On the exterior, Applebee’s received a fresh facelift and debuted a more modernized appearance with new paint around the entire building.

Guests can take advantage of $1 draft beers for the first seven days that Applebee’s is reopen, May 2-9. Draft beers include all domestic and craft selections, such as Boulevard Wheat, Boulevard Tank 7 and Stella Artois. Additionally, Applebee’s will offer $1 margaritas during the month of May and all-you-can-eat boneless buffalo wings for $11.99 all day, every day, for a limited time.

MOTHER’S DAY MUST-GIVE GUIDE

News

Released 4/29/19

 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it can be intimidating picking out a gift to show your appreciation to your own mom or stepmom, the mother of your kids, a grandma, or just a special person who plays an important role in your life. Here are my top picks in all my favorite momming departments!

 

PAMPERED MOM

My first stop was The Cosmetics Company Store, where I know I can always count on great gift sets of designer fragrances at a discounted price and the hottest makeup palettes with the same great discount. Those two are my favorite go-to gifts when I want to gift something that’s just a little bit more than what she might be expecting or what she might be willing to spend on herself.

 

THIS MOM’S PICK: Everyone is talking about the Glam Glow line of products and the Cosmetics Company has a whole display of these super high-end, clean beauty products. I was blown away! And the Cosmetics Company price point is just right for gifting these products (and maybe scoring a couple for yourself!). Treat mom to their best-seller, SuperMud® and give her the gift of complexion clearing, detoxifying, clarifying and pore refining forever-young, baby-soft skin! Seriously, she’ll thank you.

 

ACCESSORIZED MOM

One my first stops when I’m looking for gifts is always Francesca’s. If you’re looking for a stylish gift without committing to sizes or a whole look, definitely consider some of my favorite items they have right now including super trendy embellished clutch purses and wallets, fun summer-ready wide-brimmed hats, and dainty gold necklaces. Stop in and ask one of their friendly team members for help if you need inspiration. They all have great style there.

 

THIS MOM’S PICK: Accessories go way beyond fashion. After you find the perfect bit of flair for mom, don’t forget one of their beautiful and oh-so-fragrant candles. There are tons but my favorite is this therapeutic Relaxing Lavender candle with a gorgeous gold lid and hip purple geode stone on top. It seriously will smell as good as it looks and she’ll think of you every time she lights it!

 

STYLED MOM

If you know you want to find something fashionable for mom but you’re not sure where to start, start at Maurices. Their size ranges are totally comprehensive, they provide free shipping to their store if they don’t have the size you’re looking for, and their seasonal collections are made to go together so mixing and matching is super easy. I love their graphic tees for a more casual mom-look and all the fun striped patterned pants and shirts this season.

 

THIS MOM’S PICK:  Keep the kimonos coming! They’ve been around a while but are still a great way to dress up any look. Bonus points: you don’t need to worry about specific sizing to gift these. I love layering them over graphic tees like Maurices did with this one, but I also like dressing them up for a breezy layered look. This navy one with exaggerated sleeves and a floral print will work all summer long!

 

JEWELED MOM

Every year, Helzberg, Zales and Kay come up with the trendiest, most meaningful styles especially for Mother’s Day. And no mom is going to turn down diamonds! This year, check out Helzberg’s Diamond Restyle Event on May 7, where special jewelers will be on-site to re-set your existing stones, re-size existing rings, and design unique jewelry. Consider getting mom’s wedding ring re-set or freshened up with a new design!

 

THIS MOM’S PICK: Throw mom an arm party this Mother’s Day! These adjustable, dainty bolo bracelets are the new “mother’s ring” and I love the idea of stacking multiples from each of your kiddos, featuring each one’s birthstone. If diamonds aren’t in your budget, these beautiful lab-created white sapphire and gemstone bracelets will mean something to mom and go with anything!

 

LABELED MOM

One of the best parts about Legends Outlets is being steps away from Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Coach all at the same time! Mother’s Day is a great holiday to splurge on a handbag for mom because it’s just in time for something fresh and new for summer. And outlet pricing means you can afford to get mom a piece she’ll carry for the rest of the year!

THIS MOM’S PICK: I can always count on the bright and cheery floral prints at Kate Spade. Every season they get better and better. And while not all moms are ready to carry an oversized flower handbag, you can totally infuse the undeniably happy style into your mom’s life by opting for one of the smaller wallet options like this one that I love. The Sylvia Wildflower Bouquet small slim bifold wallet is the right price point and the right size for any mom!

EASTER OUTFITS FOR EVERYONE!

Fashion

Released 4/17/19

 

Easter is on its way, and we are here for the springy styles adorning the racks at Legends Outlets. Add to that the warming temperatures, and we were excited to do some outdoor shopping! We went on a mission to find versatile looks for all the kids in your family for a weekend full of family, fun, fellowship … and sweet treats!

 

TRENDY PRINTS FOR LITTLE GIRLS

Mia is wearing a dress from Carter’s in this spring’s new color, sweet mustardy yellow. We have been loving this color for fall and are so excited to see its appearance as a warm spring tone! The fresh floral print is everywhere this spring and isn’t going anywhere so feel free to get all the blooms! Spaghetti straps and ruffle details make this sweet sundress a great transitional piece along with her white strappy and braided Nina sandals from Off Broadway Shoes. Consider layering this look with a white cardigan for your Easter events, then, enjoy the breezy vibe of this carefree dress outfit all summer!

 

BRIGHT LITTLE BOY BASICS

Bentley is wearing a signature spring look: crisp chinos and a preppy piqué polo shirt. While options abound, we chose these from Crewcuts at J. Crew Factory, because we loved the quality and the huge assortment of fun, springy pastels, including this beautiful sea foam green one with a cool emoji on the chest. For maximum egg hunting speed, opt for a dressed up version of a traditional sneaker like these caramel leather high-top Sprox shoes from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

DREAMY TWEEN DRESS VIBES

Sophia is wearing a romantic tiered peasant dress from Justice. We fell in love with this dress right away because of its on-trend details that we can’t get enough of this spring, including fluttery sleeves, eyelet details and midi length. While we were at Justice, we had trouble picking our favorite shoe from all the chic options for teens and tweens but decided on this minimalist sandal featuring rose gold vamp strap and a cognac ankle strap. Sophia can dress this look up or down this summer, but we personally would love to see her style it in the latest western trend by adding a belt, boots and denim jacket this fall!

 

UPDATED STAPLE STYLES FOR BIG BRO

Cayo’s Easter look is another classic. His outfit came from Gap Outlet and includes a fresh oxford button-down in yellow and blue plaid (but there are TONS of variations if you’re looking for a special color scheme) and navy chinos in a modern skinny fit. We spiced up this traditional outfit with the latest trend in guys’ footwear: the updated athleisure loafer. We nabbed these at Off Broadway Shoes — we love the perforated detailing on the rich brown leather and the refreshed look of the white midsole. For your casual dude, there are a lot of cool options in this design at Off Broadway Shoes for every price point.

 

So, what are you waiting for? Hop on out to Legends Outlets, soak up some sun, and outfit the family at great prices for this upcoming Instagram-worthy holiday weekend!

Spring Break Style for the Whole Family

Fashion

Released 3/18/19

 

Whether you’re hitting the road, taking to the skies, or just staying put, spring break 2019 is here and it’s a great opportunity to give your look a tropical upgrade! With warmer weather and longer days on the way, we put together some travel-worthy looks for the whole family–even if that just means adding a little fun to your staycation style. This year, our favorite spring break must-haves are centered around lots of layers, beach inspired prints, and tourist approved sneakers.

 

FOR THE LITTLES 

We went east-coast cool for Adam, choosing some prepster-inspired style from Crew Cuts at J. Crew Factory Outlet. Adam is sporting a fun crab t-shirt and some easy, breezy chambray shorts. We layered on a navy and white gingham button-down shirt to add extra style and even a bit of warmth for the early spring weather. While we were admiring the huge assortment of graphic tees and oxford shirt combos, we also grabbed a cool pair of lucite shades with mirrored lenses. To complete the Nantucket vibe, we love these navy blue Sperry Topsiders from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

FOR THE TEENS AND TWEENS 

Forever 21 Red is one of our favorite stops to make when it comes to teen and tween trendspotting. It’s always a safe spot to try out new clothes while our fashion-forward youngsters are finding their personal styles–and growing like weeds in the meantime! We had no trouble outfitting Grace from head to toe at Forever 21 Red this spring break. We started with a soft and stretchy jersey knit bodysuit in a totally tropical print. Then we layered on a medium-wash denim mini skirt (which is making a big comeback right now) and a soft and worn-in bubble gum pink hoodie. And, what vacation look is complete without a fanny pack!? This one features mermaid sequins and looks great paired with some oversize tortoise shell palm-leaf earrings and chic blue lucite square-frame sunnies. For maximum adventure, we finished off Grace’s look with a trendy mint-colored, checkered slip-on sneaker by Vans from Off Broadway Shoes. 

FOR DAD

Dad style remains “in” and it’s getting better-and more adventurous-by the minute! Jesse’s look is made possible by the perfectly suited wall of vacation print button-downs we fell in love with at the Express Outlet. We opted for a chilled-out look, featuring a white shirt with blue line art palm trees and a broken-in heather baby-blue t-shirt underneath, but we wouldn’t shy away from the louder more tropical prints they have! We also loved the functional khaki-colored cut-off chinos at Express, and some Wayfarer-inspired mirrored lenses we found there as well. Jesse’s holiday footwear is a cool white Nike slip-on sneaker from Off Broadway, making long walks on the beach or boardwalk a breeze during any vacation.

 

FOR MOM 

Everyone’s favorite floral maxi dress isn’t going anywhere and we are pretty happy about it. Jessica’s spring break look centers around this lush colored tropical print maxi dress from the Express Outlet. With important updates to the standard maxi dress, hers features an asymmetrical hem and off-the-shoulder neckline. We wrapped her in a super soft pashmina from J. Crew Factory Outlet for a layer of warmth and sophistication. We accessorized with some of the latest trends from Forever 21 Red, including oversized blush tortoise shell earrings and this summer’s staple, the basket bag (chic enough for date night, but big enough for toting home souvenirs). Franco Sarto high-heeled Havana sandals give her outfit a polished air, but we wouldn’t hesitate to pair flat slides or sandals with this dress, or even try the latest look: pairing a well-worn sneaker with this otherwise feminine outfit!

 

No matter where your spring break takes you, be sure to stop in and check out all the holiday-ready style and the great deals at Legends Outlets this spring!

 

 

 

Top 5 Must-Haves for Spring Break

Fashion

Released 3/11/19

Legends Outlets’ pro stylist Sarah H. recently stopped by the center to shop for some spring break must-haves. Keep reading to find out her top picks! 

 

Sarah’s Picks: Top 5 Must-Haves for Spring Break

 

A springy sweater you can live in …

I immediately fell in love with this sweet, blushy oh-so-soft sweater with a scalloped hem at J. Crew Factory Outlet. When I saw it I knew I had to have it for my spring wardrobe because it fits all the requirements for this important time of year. Whether you’re packing for a trip or upgrading your staycation wardrobe, a sweater like this is worth its weight in gold because it provides a cozy warm layer when you need it, but a soft and light look that won’t weigh down your spring break style. This warm dusty blush color is this season’s hottest neutral and you’ll find yourself relying on it for the rest of the year, I promise! I bought mine true to size but consider sizing up for a looser layered look or down to make this a sweet simple top.

Pro tip: while you’re at J. Crew, check out their new selection of easy summer slides. With the comfort of everyday sandals, but the put-together vibe you love about J. Crew, there’s not a better staple sandal this year.

 

A good book you can get lost in … 

I’m currently reading The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah, but I’m developing quite a reading list for the spring and summer months and I started it simply by popping in to Books-A-Million and visiting their best sellers section. Whether you’re a bookworm and know just what you’re looking for or if you’re wandering the aisles looking for inspiration, make it a priority to stop in and grab yourself (and your family!) a great book to read this spring break. Kids will love a huge variety of anime, graphic novels and good-fit titles they can power through no matter how long their vacation is. Adults will love the thoughtfully organized rows featuring thousands of titles. My favorite is the best seller section, located front and center where picking up the latest title is quick and easy.

Pro tip: while you’re at Books-A-Million, check out the beautiful selection of journals and consider starting a fun travel journal with your family or a gratitude journal while you’re spending time having fun with your loved ones this season!

 

An exotic accessory you can wear no matter the weather …

This spring, I can’t get enough of these exotics-inspired drop earrings. Featuring materials like tortoise shell, wicker, mother of pearl, marble, gold tones, rattan, sea shells, and more, my favorite way to add some vacation to my staycation look is right here. I’m loving mine because they are a super cost effective way to add some beach vibes to your wardrobe and you can do it without freezing … for those of us who are staying in the Midwest this spring break, that is. If you’re headed out of this time zone, be sure to stop by Forever 21 Red where I found a literal wall of beautiful earring options –most of which are under $10!

Pro tip: use your ear flair as an excuse to rock this season’s other signature look–a low messy pony. Located right next to the earrings and sunglasses, F21 Red also has a great assortment of scrunchies and hair scarves to pull your hair back in style and show off your tropical-loving lobes!

 

A perfect product you can style with on-the-go … 

Even if you’re not headed to the beach this spring break, nothing is hotter than a head of beachy waves to welcome warmer weather! One of my favorites is Bumble and bumble’s Surf Infusion oil-infused conditioning sea salt spray from Beauty Brands. (Bonus points for the convenient travel-sized bottles available!) Fair warning: after a few days on vacation, spritzing this moisturizing and protectant texturizing spray into your hair, you’ll want to run out to Legends to buy a full-size bottle to use all year! For a legit beach look, I like to spray generously on towel-dry hair and let my locks do their thing while they air dry. If you’re pressed for time, a cool blow dryer mimics ocean wind nicely. Bumble and bumble’s mineral complex enhances your hair’s natural texture and their UV filters protect against sun damage whether you’re on the beach or on the streets this spring break.

Pro tip: while you’re at Beauty Brands don’t forget to stock up on their amazing lines of cruelty free and responsibly sourced SPFs and self-tanners to keep your body happy and healthy on vacation!

 

And last but not least …

 

A great bag you can put it all in …

Basket bags abound this spring season so you won’t have trouble finding one that fits your spring break plans, but this cute straw blush color block one from Old Navy is about as good as it gets! I loved the price point (on sale for $20 when I was there!) and I loved the color options. I obviously went with the blush straw tote (see my pink love above) but the navy and beige option was super chic too. Wherever you find your straw bag and wherever you take it, rest assured you’re carrying one of this spring and summer’s hottest bags that will take you from hammock to happy hour seamlessly.

Pro tip: while you’re at Old Navy, stock up on smaller zippered pouches that allow you to keep all your small items, cosmetics, wallets and electronics organized and safe from the occasional splash inside your new go-everywhere bag!

VALENTINE’S DAY FASHION

Fashion

Released 2/14/19

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is a great time of the year to embrace rosy hues and signature looks, whether you’re handing out valentines at school or hitting the town with your honey. And just because the holiday has come and gone all-to-quickly, it doesn’t mean you can’t sport a look you love all year long! We braved the cold at Legends Outlets to find some hot style for the occasion.

GROWN-UP GLAM

For a professional look with a nod to the most romantic holiday of the year, Katie wore a super soft, warm blush sweater from H&M, black skinny jeans, and classic black suede pumps that help her transition from the office to happy hour any day of the week. Pile on the jewels or an on-trend hoop earring to add some polished glamour.

PREPPY VIBES

Brayden’s look centered around a preppy quarter-zip sweater featuring sporty stripes on the sleeves, a slim-fit black denim from Carters and classic shell-toe Adidas sneakers from Off Broadway shoes. This put-together look can work for holidays and for casual school dances and functions for Brayden!

LUXE IN LOVE

Sarah’s romantic date night look showed off a flirty yet sophisticated charm with high-end style. Her Kate Spade dress features a trendy modest neckline, topped with the season’s hottest neutral–a blush pink pea coat with a sweet vintage bow detail at the collar. A boxy  nude Kate Spade handbag works for both day and night, especially when paired with strappy sandals with a trendy thick heel from Off Broadway Shoes.

ALL THE HEART (EYES)

The love doesn’t stop with Valentine’s Day! We fell for a fun red sweater with pink sequins in the shape of a heart at H&M. We added some edge to Gracie’s look with a faux leather jacket, cool grey denim, and retro-inspired black sneakers, all from H&M. Gracie can rock this hip and edgy look all school year!

Keep the Valentine’s Day spirit alive all month when you warm up with retailers like Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Books-A-Million, Francesca’s and H&M for tons of options for your sweetheart, kiddos or Galentines!

“aisles of red and gold…CHIEFS KINGDOM”

Fashion

Released 1/25/19

Legends Outlets retailers showed up in a big way for the Chiefs during their playoffs performance, with aisles of red and gold licensed apparel and “Chiefs Kingdom” banners hanging next to some of the biggest brands in the world.

 

While their season may be over, we are keeping hometown pride alive and showing off a few of our fashion MVPs from the post-season. #SuperBowl2020!

 

PETITE ATHLETE

We loved this work-hard/play-hard look for Kinsley! She is wearing cropped Nike leggings from the Nike Outlet and a basic grey undershirt like the ones filling the shelves at Justice and Old Navy outlets. On top, we layered a fun cropped mini-jersey we found at Sportibles that features authentic shiny mesh with a black glittery Chiefs logo on the chest. Whether she’s making plays or cheering on her team, her look is on point!

 

ATHLEISURE DUDE

Dane’s look works at school or at your next watch party. We kept him in his daily denim, like the dynamite selection they have at Crazy 8 and the Gap Outlet this season. Then we layered on a mock-neck thermal Nike dri-fit  long sleeve performance tee from the Nike Outlet and a full-zip licensed Chiefs hoodie from Sportibles. To top off his look and carry his team pride throughout the year, we found an awesome adjustable size baseball cap with a vintage Arrowhead logo at Lids. While we were there we also admired the TONS of headwear options, like toddler and youth sizes, as well as trendy tone-on-tone flat-bill snapbacks.

 

TRENDY TEEN

In true fashion, Hannah is keeping her hometown pride lowkey with on-trend fashion pieces and a subtle nod to her home team’s latest fave – Patrick Mahomes! We found a cute screen printed raglan tee at Sportibles, where we are loving the huge assortment of Chiefs apparel which isn’t limited to traditional logo hoodies! Also at Sportables was a ton of cool headwear choices. We snagged this trendy beanie there because we were into the more fashion-forward color palette and can’t get enough of the pom-pom details this winter. Hannah’s look is completed with some distressed denim and a cute wedged sneaker.

 

NOT-SO-SPORTY SUPPORTER

Whether you’re just not that into athletics or your moral support is more about making the snacks for the big game, Sarah understands. For her Chief’s look, she went with a striped mustard-colored layering tee under a super soft, bright red, chenille mock-neck red sweater. These pieces are from Old Navy and the options are limitless when it comes to these two hot colors this season! Black skinny jeans complete the casual vibe and you can find those at the Banana Republic or J. Crew outlets. A pair of trendy tassel earrings add to the fashion-forward approach to her gameday outfit and a pair of retro Nike Cortez sneakers (like the ones they have on sale at the Nike Outlet!) give her look an athleisure vibe.

 

PRO TIP: Keep the faith alive and start shopping for your 2019-2020 season looks now while stores start marking down football season apparel and accessories in preparation for new spring merchandise! You’ll be glad you did when we cheer our Chiefs on to Super Bowl L.I.V. 2020!

Easy Holiday Outfits for the Kids

Fashion

Released 12/21/18

From family functions to New Year’s Eve celebrations, there’s still time to save on holiday styles for the kids at Legends Outlets! We sent legendary stylist Sarah Hagler to Gymboree Outlet, H&M and OshKosh B’Gosh/Carter’s to scout the best styles for the season, and put together three different looks for models Reece, Kinsely and Dane. Here’s what she found:

Festive Preppy

Dane is ready for a family Christmas celebration in this fun holiday outfit. We paired his festive sweater with some beautiful red chinos from H&M. To add another component to his look, we layered a plain white button-up shirt under his sweater, which we picked up from OshKosh B’Gosh/Carter’s – a great place to shop for easy and classic basics! For the shoes, we wanted to go with something a little bit nicer than sneakers, so we scored these brown boots from H&M, and he loved them!

Classic Colors

For Reece’s look, we opted for a classic color palette pairing a plaid tartan dress with gold sparkly tights from H&M – an outfit she can easily wear to church with the family. We also picked up some adorable ballet flats from H&M to match her cute red bow for an extra pop of holiday spirit. This look is great because it offers different layers and transitional pieces that can be worn over and over again, like the white fur vest we also found at H&M. Reece can throw it on with jeans and wear it to school all winter long!

Fun Sparkle

We decided that Kinsely is ready for a New Year’s Eve party in this sparkly style! We scored her gray sweater, blue sparkly skirt and silver handbag at Gymboree Outlet for a steal! And because you can’t have enough sparkle on New Year’s Eve, we paired her festive outfit with silver tights from H&M and fun shimmery booties from OshKosh B’Gosh/Carter’s. In this outfit, Kinsely is definitely ready to welcome the New Year in style!

Like what you see? Come visit us this holiday season to score these styles and more!

TRANSITIONAL PIECES FOR YOUR FALL WARDROBE

Fashion

Released 9/6/18

We took a cue from ready-to-wear runway shows this fall and went shopping to add a few key transitional pieces to our wardrobes for the fall that’s approaching fast. Here’s what we found …

Click here to watch stylist Sarah Hagler break down the outfits on Kansas City Live, or continue reading below!

ANIMAL PRINT

Animal print is everywhere. If you’re not feeling bold enough to go for the zebra stripe just yet, start simple with a neutral-hued leopard print top like this super-soft chunky sweater we found for Sarah at Kate Spade Outlet. Its super soft texture and roll-neck design make it cozy, while three-quarter sleeves and trendy boxy shape give it movement and breath-ability for the Midwest’s crazy fall weather swings! A great way to tone down the busy print is to pair it with black denim (we chose these raw edge, distressed crops from Francesca’s.) To kick the look up a notch, we matched her sweater to her handbag with a leopard print and black leather mini backpack from Kate Spade Outlet, and a rich pair of burgundy suede mule loafers we picked up at Off Broadway Shoes. 

WESTERN WEAR

Western wear is all the rage right now and the best part is that the trend touches so many parts of fashion, you can incorporate as little or as much as you want! We went low-key cowboy with Sammy’s look, sticking with subtle hints of this classic trend. We centered her look around a terra cotta colored prairie dress. We loved this one we found at Francesca’s for its flowy midi-length construction, pockets, sashed waist, button-front details and beautiful floral embroidery at the shoulders – all characteristics to look for in a whimsical, western-inspired piece to enjoy all season. We topped off her look with a floppy hat from Banana Republic Factory, some brown leather booties from Off Broadway Shoes (bonus points for the strap and buckle details), and a rich wine colored purse from Francesca’s featuring a popular wicker canteen design.

MODEST FLORALS

Modesty dressing is an actual thing, so get used to higher necklines and longer hemlines with this season’s hottest looks. On top of that, floral is still going strong with darker hues for fall, so we couldn’t say no to this darling dress from Kate Spade Outlet, featuring a high neck and ruffled midi hemline. This dress is sleeveless, so we gave Rebecca an extra layer for the cooler weather, with an ultra chic olive-colored suede moto jacket from Banana Republic Factory to add some edge. Completing the look, a tough combat boot from Off Broadway Shoes makes this outfit work for day or night in any weather – adding cool factor with the very popular shoe design.

Legendary Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

News

Released 6/12/18

Father’s Day is coming up quick and shopping for Dad can be difficult, but don’t panic if you haven’t gotten your gift(s) yet. Our stylist Sarah Hagler stopped by Legends Outlets to pick out some last-minute gifts that are suitable for every type of father.

 

Click here to watch Sarah break down all the gift ides on KSHB 41 Action News, or continue reading below!

 

Father’s Day is fast approaching but there’s still time to grab some great gifts for Dad. And just because you may be running low on time, it doesn’t mean you can’t still get a cool, thoughtful gift – and stay on budget!

 

Our favorite go-to spot for gifting is definitely Books-A-Million (BAM). This year, at the top of our gotta-give list is this Crosley Cruiser Deluxe portable record player. While these aren’t new to the marketplace, we are loving this idea for lots of reasons. From their more-competitive-than-ever price point, to their portability and bluetooth capabilities, these vintage looking turntables are sure to please dads from all walks of life.

 

Bonus: vinyl is in the midst of an epic comeback. Buy your dad a turntable and help him start or add to his record collection! This could be the beginning of a fun tradition, if you want to build his music library with his favorite oldies and new releases that are featured in BAM’s extensive vinyl assortment.

 

If your dad is a little more new school, be sure to check out BAM’s collection of smartphone accessories. Our favorites include a bright green bluetooth speaker with surprising battery life and sound power, a retro gaming console to play his favorite Nintendo games on any modern display, a virtual reality headset, and a Gameboy style device for more gaming fun for dad!

 

This may sound crazy, but BAM also has … books! And we are loving them as a super thoughtful gift idea for any dad. Consider nonfiction books that support his hobbies like the titles we found about craft beer, cocktails, history and sports. Whatever your dad is into, this is your chance to show him you support his interests!

 

While you’re at it, throw in a handsome journal like the leatherbound one we found, or some cute novelty quote books made to feature the words of the men in your life. Fiction collector editions are also a big hit with superfans, like the beautifully bound and gift boxed Sherlock Holmes set we found.

 

Our next favorite store for Dad is Eddie Bauer Outlet, naturally. This year we are loving their cool collection of outdoor-ready SPF clothing. We grabbed a trendy teal plaid button down and a pair of staple khaki cargo shorts that will take him from a long hike to a family barbeque in one stylish outfit. Waterproof rain jackets are always a popular gift – especially this time of year with the unpredictable midwest weather we love so much!

 

We also grabbed a handy stowaway backpack while we were at Eddie Bauer Outlet – a favorite for traveling dads because they tuck away in a small pouch then open up for 20 liters of storage. Last but not least: a super handy folding camp table! We loved this for the versatility and novelty of the idea – whether it’s for your dad who enjoys roughing it in the woods or hosting his friends at a tailgate!

 

Finally, we couldn’t share our favorite Father’s Day gift ideas without featuring the king of all coolers – the Yeti Roadie 20!! We got this one from Cavender’s – a great spot for the outdoor or rural dad. Its ColdLock Gasket means Dad’s ice stays colder longer, and its “No Sweat” design means he’ll never be stuck mopping up a mess. With its compact body and rotomolded construction, this small but mighty outdoor cooler is ready for whatever Dad has in store for his big holiday weekend. We threw in a gift card to Eddie Bauer Outlet and Sporting KC tickets for the ultimate Dad’s Day gift pack!

 

Oh and did we mention you can WIN the Yeti, Eddie Bauer gift card and Sporting KC Tickets?! It’s true! Just visit the ‘Events’ tab on our website and click the Father’s Day event to enter for your chance to win this awesome haul for your favorite guy!  

Summer Shoe Trends

Fashion

Released 6/6/18

Summer is here and so are some serious footwear moments we want to share with you! Trends are happening across the spectrum from sneakers to stilettos and this year, they’re easier than ever to get into. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

 

Great news for you high-heel haters: the biggest trend we are seeing this summer revolves around athletic shoes! Journeys knows where it’s at with this trend and we grabbed the following sneakers there to highlight the biggest looks …

 

First up, look for the “futuristic sneaker” everywhere this summer. This features a sock-style body, reflective colors, sleek designs, and minimal laces or closures. We got these Pumas at Journeys and would love to pair them with a sleek jogger pant and racerback tank with strappy details.

 

Next up is the bold color in your retro-inspired sneaker. These New Balance 998s feature a classic body style with suede construction in a sweet berry color. We’d pair these Journey jewels with a fun midi dress in a floral print to really make that purple pop!

 

Also hot this summer is cool pastels. These baby blue Adidas sneakers are from Journeys too and feature a feminine coral logo on the tongue and would look great with a cropped straight leg light-wash distressed denim pant and a breezy linen button down.

 

Onto the opposite end of the spectrum are the highest of heels, which are sticking around another season to show off your pedicure! We picked these up at Off Broadway Shoes and are loving the variety we saw there. We are focusing on three of our favorite trends for this season …

 

Plastic. Yes, plastic! These Bebe stilettos feature shiny clear plastic straps and an ultra high heel. Save these saucy numbers for a night out and pair them with a short dress to make your legs look a mile long.

 

Ruffles. The feminine flair of a blush colored suede ruffle-toe stiletto will always be romantic to us. Dress these Mark Fishers up with a day dress for your best friend’s wedding or dress them down with a distressed boyfriend jean for a flirty, laid back look at brunch or dinner.

 

Florals. You can’t go wrong with florals this season. We love the cheery print on these Michael Shannon stilettos, and the dainty ankle strap is positively dreamy. Make these your statement shoe with a little black dress or dress them down like the ruffled heels for a cool juxtaposition of vibes on a night out on the town.

 

We can’t do vacations and pool parties without flats, so here are our favorite trends in the middle of the shoe spectrum for you …

 

Birkenstock is enjoying its full-fledged comeback, but we wanted to find a more original style so we opted for these earthy, laid back slides from Dolce Vita at Off Broadway Shoes. The hemp wrapped midsole and the contrast stitching make these the perfect casual slide for all your summer looks – from a sun dress to shorts.

 

Also giving us lowkey hippie vibes we love are these Michael Shannon sandals featuring the popular toe-ring style and a minimalist black leather band. These boho sandals are made for tourist jaunts and chill picnic scenes with any shorts and tank tops you pair them with!

 

Step up your flats game this summer with an embellished mule. These Zigi Soho mules feature a plush velvet outer, studded with chunky pearls and crystals. We loved this pair because they could be a great transitional shoe between the seasons and could also work for business or party style outfits!

 

Add a little summer flair to your closed-toed look with these Restricted d’orsay flats, featuring a distressed linen upper and a super fun fruit print. We’d love to see these cheeky pineapples with an otherwise business-casual outfit or with a tailored pair of high waisted shorts.

 

Last but certainly not least is one of the biggest shoe trends of the year – kitten heels! We are loving kittens because they add a nice lifted, dressed up look to any outfit, but are functional and have a chic shape.

 

We took the kitten heel and added a fresh pop of color to these open toed sandals. They feature a cute tie detail around the ankle for added fun. We’d pair these with culottes and a chambray shirt for an airy, preppy look.

 

Since it’s wedding season we also wanted to include a dressy option and went straight for Vince Camuto kitten heels at Off Broadway Shoes. These slingback suede mini-pumps feature a super sleek and vintage design with a deep vee at the vamp to elongate your leg and add some drama to your look. Pair these with any LBD for weddings or with a tailored cropped pant and high-low button down blouse for a retro vibe.

Legendary Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

News

Released 5/8/18

Mother’s Day is right around the corner but if you’re in a panic about what to get the women in your life who have done so much for you, never fear. Our stylist Sarah Hagler made a quick stop at Legends Outlets and came away with tons of great ideas for the last-minute shopper.

 

Click here to watch Sarah break down all the gift ides on KSHB 41 Action News, or continue reading below!

 

Take advantage of the warm weather and go score yourself some affordable and thoughtful gifts for the ladies you love! Here’s how … For starters, whose mom doesn’t love a Coach handbag? Our favorite one this season is a structured pink shoulder bag we found at the Coach Outlet. We tied a cute mauve silk handkerchief on the strap for some added flair and bonus style.

 

One of our favorite stops at Legends Outlets when it comes to gift-giving is always Francesca’s Outlet. From totally of-the-moment fashion pieces like this gauzy navy and white striped wrap and bright tassel necklace, to seasonally on-point handbags like this straw clutch with bold stripes, we are never disappointed when we look for high-style accessories there. Francesca’s also carries a wide variety of giftable health and beauty supplies like these Rose bath salt cubes.

 

If you are looking to pamper mom this year, look no further than Beauty Brands, where we found salon brand gift sets like AG hair products and Clarins skin care. We also love the versatility of a gift card for spa services like manicures, pedicures, facials, and hair styling.

 

Another classic idea came to us at the Bath & Body Works Outlet where we scored a peachy collection of fragrances that looks just as good as it smells! We are loving Bath & Body Works’ line of “Pretty as a Peach” fragranced body splash, body wash, shea butter body cream, and candles for this time of year. We threw on a glam golden pineapple candle topper to complete the collection’s fresh and fruity theme.

 

One stop at The Cosmetics Company Outlet loaded us up on so many moms’ favorite beauty standard: Clinique! You can’t go wrong with this good-for-your-skin brand when you give her a fun sun protection travel kit in a cheery yellow bag like we found. Of course they also carry a variety of Clinique’s famous staple products you can shop for individually too, as well as bright canvas totes and other fun cosmetics accessories.

 

For the fashionable mom, we grabbed a gorgeous pair of Tory Burch sunglasses from the Sunglass Hut Outlet. We love this pair because it features a very trendy oversized modified cat eye shape and a cool blue tinted tortoise shell frame that you have to see to believe. The quality and cool factor would make these a noteworthy gift for any mom this year.

 

Another stop we have to make every time we are shopping for gifts is is the Books-A-Million Outlet, where we picked out a new release cookbook by singer Martina McBride, along with a fun graphic meal tracker notepad. With endless books and tons of beautiful notepads and journals, BAM can hook you up with a thoughtful, useful gift for Mom this Mother’s Day. As a fun add-on, we grabbed some floral painted stemless wine glasses from T.J. Maxx to accompany her healthful gift!

 

If you’re on the market for something sentimental for Mom, do not miss the Helzberg Diamonds Outlet’s touching collection of keepsake jewelry. Our favorite is this diamond mother and baby pendant in sterling silver and 14 karat rose gold.

 

Last but not least, for the chicest mom, we got so many great ideas at the new Kate Spade Outlet. It was hard to pick, but our favorites included a cheery leather wallet in a fresh poppy red with tons of storage inside, the ultimate springy crossbody bag in a floral printed leather, and everyone’s go-to bag style this year – the leather mini backpack in mauve.

 

If you’re like us and having a hard time deciding between all the great ideas, you can always grab a gift card at any of your favorite Legends Outlet stores, including the movie theater and restaurants OR just get a Legends Outlets gift card and let Mom choose how to spend on her day!

What to Wear: Spring Transitional Fashion

Fashion

Released 3/5/18

It may still be a little chilly but we are feeling the vibes of the upcoming iconic transitional season in the air. Thanks to finicky midwest late winters and early springs, the secret to having a stylish look for the season is LAYERS. We grabbed a few fresh new pieces to help you spring forward in style!

SOFT AND CHIC

Astrid is showing off so many new looks for the year, taking cues from runway shows with her trench, flowing skirt and variety of pastels. We built her look on a beautiful midi length pleated skirt from Ann Taylor Factory, which features a sophisticated ribbon waist and vertical stripes in the season’s favorite colors: soft coral, steely blue, cream, navy and earthy chartreuse. Following up on a recent trend, we mixed her pinks with a super soft, lightweight, boat neck pink sweater from H&M and a Banana Republic Factory Classic Trench in pink. An open-toed perforated high-heeled shootie with lace detailing on the shaft serves as the perfect transitional shoe for the season – providing structure plus a peep-toe to show off your early spring pedicure. We topped off Astrid’s look by piling on shiny accessories from franscesca’s Outlet including a sparkly cocktail necklace with pink, white and blue stones and a light blue crystal beaded lariat necklace with trendy gold fringe. Oversized rose quartz stud earrings complete the look.

MODERN PREPPY

Sammy is freshening up a classic look with this season’s staples. We started with a basic skinny jean from Gap Factory and topped it with a crisp oxford featuring a springy sea green stripe from H&M. Spring is a great time to use your blazer as a jacket, so we did just that with the iconic Schoolboy Blazer from J.Crew Factory. With brass button detailing and timeless navy cotton construction, this will be a jacket you wear all year long! To incorporate the season’s obsession with florals, we found a beautiful, gauzy watercolor inspired scarf from H&M. This not only adds style to a basic look, but also doubles as some warmth for chilly spring mornings. (Bonus tip: scarves and accessories are an easy, affordable way to add trendy accents to your existing wardrobe. Here, we incorporated a big upcoming trend, yellow, with florals in one inexpensive piece!) We rounded out Sammy’s preppy look with a stoney blue tassel loafer from J. Crew Factory – an excellent source for all the coolest menswear inspired footwear for ladies this season, including d’orsay flats, penny-loafer inspired mules, and multiple color options in the tassel loafer. A pair of cool colored tortoise shell shades in a modern round shape with mirrored lenses means she’s ready for the sun to shine!

Our advice: Take advantage of the warmer days and pick up a few signature spring items to freshen up your wardrobe at Legends Outlets! By adding a few key pieces to your wardrobe, you can welcome the warm weather with open arms!

Fall Boot & Coat Trends

Fashion

Released 11/3/17

The days are getting shorter and there’s a chill in the air. For us that only means one thing … time to layer on the stylish jackets and chic boots for fall!

COZY CHIC

Astrid is ready for a fall sporting event or hitting the sidewalks for some serious holiday shopping in her comfy yet cute look. We love this puffy coat by Guess we found at Wilson’s Leather because of its versatile shape with this year’s stand-out color trend: rose gold. The removable fur-trimmed hood, shimmering finish, and high-quality quilted detailing make this a grown-up version of your favorite outdoor gear. We topped off her casual look with a suede ballcap, also from Wilson’s. Dark-wash skinny jeans from Gap Outlet and a funky, lace-up combat boot from Off Broadway Shoes give her style that will travel with her through this busy time of year.

SLEEK AND EDGY

Anna is doubling up on this season’s jacket trends with a leather trench coat by Calvin Klein from Wilson’s Leather. The double-breasted lapel and waist-cinching belt are hallmarks of this classic jacket, but the sheen of leather gives this look an undeniable edge that we took to the next level with distressed dark-wash denim skinny jeans from Gap Outlet. We finished her night-out-worthy look with ankle booties featuring a side zipper and a chunky stacked heel from Off Broadway Shoes.

FRESH TAKE ON CLASSIC STYLE

Sammy is wearing a very 2017 version of the classic peacoat, with the addition of shiny gold double-breasted buttons and gleaming gold-zippered pockets. The season’s favorite color, burgundy, also updates the traditional cut with a soft, boucle texture. We dressed up her look with black denim from Gap Outlet tucked into super chic over-the-knee (OTK) suede boots from Off Broadway Shoes. Everyone’s favorite OTK boot got an update with this pair, featuring a luxe, mirrored gold accent on a thick heel.

BONUS

Sarah, our stylist, got in on the fun with some super fashionable velvet sock boots from Off Broadway Shoes. There are a ton of varieties of this fall’s biggest velvet boot trend, from basic black to exciting pops of color, to the ultra-trendy floral print that Sarah is wearing. The block heel and slight platform provide the right amount of lift for a holiday party or fashionable night out.

Whether you’re feeling the black boot vibes like we were, or looking for a warm brown or cool neutral, this season calls for all-things boots! And, you won’t have trouble finding the shape, color and style that suits you when you shop at Legends Outlets. The same goes for outerwear too! With a ton of variety at low prices, you can have a coat for every day of the week this fall!

SCARECROW
Astrid is rocking the year’s biggest denim trend: a fresh take on overalls! These light wash overalls from Francesca’s Outlet feature brass button detailing up the front that updates her timeless workwear. We layered on a cute flannel button-down, and a versatile utility field jacket from Old Navy Outlet to keep her warm on chilly Midwest nights. Cognac colored booties from Off Broadway tie together the rural look, along with a straw Safari hat with coordinating band from Charming Charlie. For added character, we painted on rosy pink scarecrow cheeks, and a cute brown nose.

WITCH
What’s Halloween without a witch? Anna’s versatile LBD makes the perfect base for this eerie look. She is wearing a three-quarter length bell sleeve shift dress from Banana Republic Factory Store that features a raw lace edge, providing a subtle goth look for Halloween, but a classic detail for future special events and holiday parties this winter. We completed her look with an edgy, open-toe velvet bootie and wide-brim floppy hat from Off Broadway, and a funky geometric pendant necklace and furry clutch from Charming Charlie. To enhance her look, we gave Anna a moody purple smokey shadow and subtle cat eye-lined lids.

ZOMBIE
Walking Dead fans, rejoice! Your Halloween costume couldn’t be easier – or warmer! We stuck with a neutral color palette for Caleb’s outfit, which includes chinos and a tech vest, plus a dual-layered knit hood and rugged canvas jacket from Wilson’s Leather. We added to his look with tough brown combat boots from Off Broadway, which include a two-tone brown leather and nubuck upper, and a cool zipper accent up the side. For this look, it’s all about survivalist style, so you can’t go wrong with lots of layers! We finished Caleb’s style off with blue-ish hued eye sockets for an extra-creepy zombie vibe.

By getting creative with your shopping, you can make an easy, affordable Halloween costume out of the latest trends like we did. Show us your Legends Outlets Halloween ensembles using #LegendsKC.

Plan ahead and travel safely during solar eclipse

News

Released 8/15/17

Kansas Department of Transportation News 

On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will occur as the moon passes directly in front of the sun, darkening the sky. With increased traffic anticipated across the state as people travel to view the eclipse, the Kansas Department of Transportation, Kansas Turnpike Authority, and Kansas Highway Patrol advise travelers to plan ahead, be patient, avoid distractions, and practice safe driving habits.

Travelers across the state are encouraged to follow these tips to drive safely on the day of the eclipse:

  • Allow plenty of travel time to reach a safe place for viewing, as roads may be congested due to increased traffic.
  • Do not take photos or wear the eclipse sunglasses when driving.
  • Do not pull over to the side of the highway to view the solar eclipse. Find a location off the highway and right-of-way to observe and/or take photos.
  • If you are driving during the eclipse, turn on your headlights and do not rely on your automatic headlights.
  • Expect the unexpected: watch out for other drivers and pedestrians.
  • Plan ahead for fuel needs and always remember to keep your gas tank full during long trips.

It is also important to be prepared in case of emergencies and create a travel safety kit. Some items to consider for a travel kit may include:

  • Non-perishable foods
  • Water
  • A first-aid kit and any prescription medications needed
  • Motor oil
  • Antifreeze
  • Fuel
  • Jumper cables
  • Brake fluid
  • Windshield washer fluid
  • A map

Back-to-School Fashion for Students of All Ages

Fashion

Released 8/11/17

Summer is wrapping up and before we know it, kids will be back in school! If you’re feeling like you are running out of time to get everyone outfitted for the new year, don’t panic: Legends Outlets is a one-stop shop for back-to-school needs for every age!

Click here to watch legendary stylist Sarah Hagler break down each look on Kansas City Live, or continue reading below!

Grade School
While there are tons of cute options at Legends Outlets, we found the majority of Joey’s look at Crazy 8 – with easy outfits and great deals, this stop is a no-brainer for back-to-school shopping! Joey is rocking a vintage look in some straight-leg denim, a navy buffalo checkered button-down, as well as an ultra-hip cardigan – all pieces that can be layered to last through the fall! Highlighted with shoes and accessories that help show off his personality at school, we completed Joey’s look with some cool Converse leather all-star sneakers from Off Broadway Shoes, and a Marvel Comics backpack from Old Navy Outlet.

We managed to outfit Alex almost head-to-toe in Justice – a major brand score for girls her age! Skinny jeans are a staple this year, as well as lots of layers to complete the transitional season’s look. We topped her Justice jeans with a white t-shirt featuring crochet detailing around the neck, a pink ombre button-down, and an embellished army jacket. Her pink suede boots and sequin lunchbox complete her stylish ensemble!

Middle School
Campbell is hanging on to summer with her mermaid color scheme and Sperry topsider loafers from Off Broadway Shoes. We topped off her skinny jeans with an aqua, blue, green and magenta print cotton top, both from Old Navy Outlet, along with a minty-aqua trench from Forever 21 | F21 Red. We also grabbed her a cheetah backpack at Old Navy Outlet to get into the print-mixing trend that’s happening right now.

High School
For a teen, getting the laid back high school vibe is easy to do by mixing high-quality basics. We dressed Carson in cargo shorts, a white t-shirt, and a red buffalo checkered button-down from J. Crew Factory | Crewcuts – an outfit he can put on repeat all year long, replacing the shorts with denim and throwing on jackets, sweaters and hoodies as the Midwest winter starts to kick in. For now, he is showing his black athletic socks like the kind you can grab at Nike Factory or Under Armour Factory House with a pair of cool Ralph Lauren sneakers from Off Broadway Shoes. We found a super functional, Kenneth Cole backpack for him at Wilson’s Leather, which adds a nice touch and helps elevate his casual look.

College
Legends Outlets has perfect options to let Adrienne go from class to her internship and everything in between on campus this fall. We opted for a structured olive green utility skirt with a cinched waist, a classic striped t-shirt and a denim blazer, all from J. Crew Factory. A chunky tortoise shell necklace, also from J. Crew Factory, dressed up the look to perfection. We balanced the greens and blues in her outfit with a warm blush backpack from Forever 21 | F21 Red. Her perforated blush athletic slip-ons from Off Broadway Shoes keeps the look casual and helps her get where she needs to go on time!

News

Released 6/8/17

Legends Outlets Kansas City announced preliminary plans to transform the west end of the property into a new community space named “The Lawn.” Plans include the addition of park-like features and interactive elements including a jumbo outdoor LED screen placed on Legends Outlets’ iconic smokestack, facing south, and a smaller LED display facing east toward the property’s Civic Courtyard Fountain.

“Legends Outlets is a shopping destination built on experiences,” said Jennifer Wojcik, Legends Outlets’ general manager.” “The Lawn” will further enhance those experiences by providing shoppers, visitors and families with an engaging gathering space for leisure activities, picnics, screenings and events of all kinds,” Wojcik said.

The development plan also features exciting announcements and changes to some retail spaces, beginning with longtime retailer Cavender’s Western Outfitter. Cavender’s will relocate from its current location at Legends Outlets to a newly constructed, 16,330-square-foot retail space located next to Charming Charlie and facing “The Lawn.” Construction for Cavender’s new location is underway, which includes merging two existing retail spaces: Suites D-105 and D-107. Cavender’s is scheduled to open in its new location mid-July.

Legends Outlets is still working on the final design plans for “The Lawn” but plans to begin construction this summer. All stores will remain open throughout construction. The Legends team is working to coordinate all details of the project to ensure an exceptional experience for all shoppers while they work to enhance the property for the future.

Construction update as of August 2017

Construction and installation of the LED screens is on track for a debut this holiday season. Construction on The Lawn is now slated to begin in February 2018, contingent upon weather. The Lawn will debut in late spring of 2018, just in time for family gatherings, leisure activities, picnics and screenings.

Legendary Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

News

Released 6/8/17

 

Great news: There’s still time to get your dad an awesome Father’s Day gift! And just because June 18 is almost here doesn’t mean you have to settle for anything less than thoughtful for the father figure in your life. That’s because Legends Outlets totally has you covered. Our team made a quick stop at various stores and picked up tons of stuff for all kinds of dads at all kinds of price points!

Click here to watch our stylist Sarah Hagler break down all the gift ides on KSHB 41 Action News, or continue reading below! 

The first place we stopped was Books-A-Million, where we found a super diverse assortment of gift ideas. From the techy dad to the cool dad, this place legitimately has it all. On the top of our list was a pocket drone! Unmanned aircrafts are all the rage right now, and what better way to get outdoors with dad and learn something new together? The Pocket Drone is on sale right now for $180, too, so it’s a steal (normally priced at $200+). Another hot item for the tech dad is the Immerse Plus Virtual Reality Headset, which couples with his smartphone for an awesome VR experience.

For the cool, collector dad, definitely look into Books-A-Million’s excellent variety of hard and paperback books. Some titles we recommend include The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker, and Shoe Dog, a Memoir by the Creator of NIKE by Phil Knight.

We also loved its vinyl section, where we picked up Bruce Springsteen’s latest album, Chapter and Verse, which would make an awesome combo gift alongside his recently published autobiography, Born to Run – also available at Books-A-Million.

We also had a lot of fun shopping Books-A-Million’s novelty and gadget section, where we picked up a handy multi-use tool that includes a hammer and bottle opener, a BBQ apron, a stainless steel travel tumbler, and a sign that says “BEST DAD IN THE UNIVERSE!”

Next stop was Wilson’s Leather, where we picked up a couple high-end gifts for the traveling dad. More than just leather coats, Wilson’s had a ton of cool accessories and travel must-haves for the dad on the go! We scored a beautiful Kenneth Cole Reaction top zip travel kit, and a Wilson’s Leather passport cover. These two thoughtful items topped our list for the dad who seems to already have it all.

Also for the cool dad, you should of course consider stopping at Sunglass Hut. We grabbed two absolute staples – Rayban Wayfarers in black and top-selling Oakley sport shades.

For the sporty dad, definitely check out Sports Nutz. We were blown away by the selection – way more than just jerseys and hats (but those are awesome too)! We fell in love with double-walled stainless beverage glasses that feature dad’s favorite sporting team. To help him show his pride, we also grabbed a car flag, and a shiny chrome decal. Whatever side of the state line you’re from, Sports Nuts has you – and your dad – covered!

To go with the team spirit drinkware, we grabbed a galvanized bucket from Sports Nuts that would make a great base for a customized gift basket for dad. We filled ours with a variety of soda from KC Soda Co., now featuring an assortment of “DAD’s” brand craft sodas. (See what we did there?!)

Of course we had to stop at Eddie Bauer Outlet to shop for our outdoorsy dads! They told us their best selling dad’s gift this year is this amazing packable backpack we picked up in navy blue. They have a variety of colors and sizes but this lightweight travel staple inspired us to grab it and go! Other awesome ideas at Eddie Bauer include a nylon-lined fleece camping blanket with a soft and fuzzy layer that protects from the elements and also rolls up with a great traveling strap. We also scored a really popular Insulated Backpack Cooler – perfect for picnicking or packing snacks on a hike. We also loved their staple camping lantern – an affordable and thoughtful must-have for any dad who loves the great outdoors!

And last but not least, what kind of Father’s Day would it be without a fabulous tie!? We stopped at Brooks Brothers Factory Store to nab their St. Jude’s Striped Tie. If you’re looking for a gift for dad that gives back, definitely pick this stylish tie: Brooks Brothers donates $10 to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital with the purchase of every St. Jude’s tie and pocket square, now through June 18. Another great option for the dapper dad is a classic Brooks Brothers watch with a signature fabric watch band.

With more than 100 stores – and new stuff on sale every day – Legends Outlets really is your one-stop shop for all things Father’s Day!
