Cold Weather Ready: Coats


Released 10/12/22


The crisp, cool autumn weather has officially arrived, which means it’s time to start stocking your closet with alllll the outerwear. Perhaps the most important part of every fall outfit, coats and jackets are essential for the season. From picking apples at the orchard to attending an outdoor wedding, there’s always a time for a nice fall coat. Keep reading to see our top picks for coats this season.



If you’ve experienced a Midwest winter, then you know that a puffer coat is an absolute must-have. And while choosing the perfect puffer coat is sometimes more about function than fashion, you can still look stylish and trendy while staying warm!



Denim looks good year-round, but the addition of fur lining makes these jackets extra cozy and perfect for the cooler months. We love denim jackets because they are the easiest layering piece since they go with everything and add a casual finish to any outfit.



A chic trench coat or peacoat are classic outerwear pieces that that everyone should own. Perfect for fancier occasions, long coats like these are also great transition and layering pieces! Let this statement piece shine by pairing it with the basics like a white top and straight-leg jeans.



Channel your inner Maverick with a Top Gun-inspired bomber jacket. Bombers are so in this season and instantly give a cool factor to any outfit. We love these camel-colored versions (that also come in black!) that look great layered with tees, sweaters, or hoodies!



A shacket (a.k.a. shirt jacket) is the perfect transition piece for any casual look. They’re heavy enough to keep you warm during the crisp fall weather, but light enough that you won’t be sweating before the temps really drop. For both the guys and gals, a shacket paired with jeans and boots is a great go-to look for fall. Dress it up with a casual dress and boots!



If you’ve been keeping up with the fall trends, then you know leather is the fabric every it-girl (and boy) is wearing this season. A leather jacket will instantly add some extra edge to any outfit. Plus, we love these options because they are lined with sherpa which will keep you extra cozy during the coldest months!


Whether you’re looking for a trendy piece to amp up your look, something more basic for day-to-day wear, or a new puffer to replace the one you wore out last year, Legends Outlets has all the hottest styles for the season.

Fall Trend Spotlight


Released 9/21/22


Autumn leaves are falling down, as Taylor Swift so famously said, and we’re not mad about it. The season of pumpkin-spiced-flavored everything, cozy cardigans, and crisp temps is here, and we’ve scoured the runways to narrow down your official fall dress code: Leather ✔️ mini-skirts ✔️ cargo pants ✔️ blazers ✔️ trousers✔️. From apple picking to pumpkin carving and brunch to bonfires, keep reading for the latest trends of the season with styles for every occasion and price point!




No, you don’t have to own a motorcycle to rock leather or know the lyrics to “Born to Be Wild”, and yes, leather can be alternative, edgy, casual, AND chic. Leather, the new neutral, is here to stay (like your in-laws during the holidays) and it’s time to embrace it. This season’s take on the trend goes beyond pants: think oversized leather shirts, jumpsuits, dresses and skirts. Feeling timid? You don’t have to wear head-to-toe leather to earn an A+ OOTD.


1. Hollister  2. Hollister  3. Hollister

Tuck a cozy knit sweater into leather pants or a mini skirt or wear it underneath a leather dress for an effortless fall outfit. Really lean into the trend by doubling down on leather – pair your leather bottoms with a basic tee and a leather jacket or blazer.


Mini Skirts


Last season we welcomed the return of the 90’s and early 2000’s mini-skirt trend with open arms and a new found desire to learn tennis. Your summer tan and bank account will be happy to know the trend isn’t going anywhere, thank goodness, because there are SO many ways to transition your favorite mini from summer to fall.


4. American Eagle  5. Hollister  6. Hollister

We love to pair our miniskirts for fall with a sweater and over the knee boots or tights and booties. Other adorable mini skirt pairings include fitted turtlenecks, sweater vests, and blazers. (Pro tip: blazers look the most proportional with miniskirts when they are the same length or just hair longer than your skirt!) Bonus points for miniskirts made of leather and corduroy, aka the best fabrics for fall.


Cargo Pants


As more Y2K trends come back around, prepare for a resurgence in cargo pants. Gen Z loves to wear this style low on the hips with a baby tee, but we’ve found some high-waisted versions if you are looking for a more mature take on the trend.


7. Hollister  8. Hollister  9. American Eagle

One of the best parts about cargo pants’ casual, industrial style is that when they’re paired with delicate lines and flowy materials, you get a fun, contrasting look. Pair these masculine pants with a feminine top in a silk, cotton, or chiffon fabric for a more refined look. And for when things get chilly at night, leather jackets look amazing with cargo pants.




Whether you like your blazers single or double breasted, patterned or plain, bright or neutral, Legends Outlets has the one (or two) for you!


10. H&M  11. Ann Taylor  12. H&M

2022 has shown us that a blazer can be worn with anything. Go simple with jeans and a t-shirt, pair one with a fun dress and boots, or make an oversized blazer your whole ‘fit by styling it like a mini dress with a belt to define your waist and a pair of bike shorts underneath to provide more coverage.




We love shopping for trousers at Ann Taylor and H&M because they have multiple different fits and styles for any body. Whether you’re looking for curvy fit, high waisted, wide leg or skinny, we have the perfect pants to suit you.


13. Ann Taylor  14. Ann Taylor  15. H&M

We all know trousers are classic workwear, but they can also be dressed down with a sweatshirt and sneakers for a cute and casual look. We also love pairing our trousers with a sweater vest and clogs or a turtleneck and coordinating pumps!


With Legends Outlets , you can take the hottest styles straight from the runway to your closet.


Game Day Ready: Football Season Favorites

7.  Vest

This cozy fleece vest will have you ready to cheer on your team at the next gameday.


8. ¼ Zip Pullover

We all need something comfy and warm to wear while still showing our KC pride. This ¼ zip pullover is perfect for gamedays or everyday wear.

5 Looks from 5 Items


Released 8/25/22


Have you ever looked in your closet full of clothes and thought “I have nothing to wear”? We can all be guilty of wearing the same thing over and over again, and let’s be honest, it can get sooo boring. But you don’t have to go on a huge shopping spree to reinvent your closet. With a little creativity, you can create multiple looks from just a few basics. We’ve chosen 5 staple pieces from Forever 21 that everyone should own  – a simple tee, jeans, mini dress, maxi dress, and jean jacket – and found 5 different ways to wear them. Get your shopping list ready and keep reading to find 5 ways to style 5 items.



Black Tee + Jeans

You can never go wrong with a basic black tee and classic jeans for any casual occasion. Add a jean jacket and white sneakers for a comfy look or some jewelry and heels to feel a little more put together!



Maxi Dress + Jacket

A classic jean jacket turns a fancier maxi dress into a casual ‘fit! Dress it down with a pair of sandals or sneakers for a day of shopping with friends or add a pair or wedges to dress it up for date night!



Mini Dress + Jeans + Jacket

Dying to wear your new mini dress but don’t want to be the only one dressed up? Tuck it into a pair of jeans to turn it into an adorable tank top! Not only does this make a dress feel more casual, but now you have dozens of different ways to wear it – with jeans, shorts, or trousers!



Maxi Dress + Black Tee

We all have that one dress that we just love to wear. Already worn it to work once this week? Add a tee on top to turn your maxi dress into a maxi skirt. Just like magic, you have a never-before-seen ‘fit so nobody can call you an outfit repeater. BONUS: Layer a tee under a maxi dress for another fresh look.



Mini Dress + Black Tee

Layering a black tee under a mini dress turns this look from girly to edgy just like that. Add your favorite pair of sneakers or boots for the fall and you’ll be the trendsetter of your friend group.

Wedding Guest Lookbook

Weddings are our time to shine. Open bar and buffet? Don’t mind if we do. Dance floor? We’re always down to bust a move. Bridesmaid duties? On it – and you better believe we’re catching the bouquet! But finding the perfect outfit to wear as a guest is another story. We want to say yes to the dress too, but sadly we don’t always have a team of stylists to help. Luckily, there’s little in the way of a wedding guest dress rulebook (other than no white, obvs) and at Legends Outlets, there are dress options for any kind of wedding – no matter how fancy.

Design Your Dream Dorm Room


Released 7/15/22


Now that high school graduation is complete, it’s time to find items that will make your dorm room feel like home. Your dorm will be your refuge, your sanctuary, that little corner of campus that you can truly call your own – so why not make it uniquely you? Keep reading for 9 items from HomeGoods that will help create a space you’ll want to spend time in, even during those dreaded all-nighters.


  1. Desk Chair

You will likely be spending a lot of time at your desk doing homework or studying for exams, and the chairs in dorms are never very comfy. Not only will a plush, velvet desk chair make it easier to sit and study for hours, but it also looks wayyyy cuter than the one your college will provide.


  1. Desk Lamp

Perfect for studying into the wee hours of the night, this lamp comes with a bonus feature: a built-in USB port for charging your phone. Plus, if you’re an early riser and your roommate is not, the softer lighting is a great way to keep the peace and not wake each other up!


  1. Full Length Mirror

Mirrors aren’t just for checking your look, they can also make your room feel bigger, which is super important in small spaces. We loved this one that has lots of color and texture, adding so much personality to your space.


  1. Decorative Throw Pillows

When dorm room decorating, an easy way to add character is with throw pillows. Mixing and matching pillows with fun colors and patterns is a quick way to incorporate your fashion sense into your room, all while making your dorm extra cozy.


  1. Pencil Holder

Add a stylish touch to your desk and keep all your desk essentials organized in one cute pencil holder, so you never have to ask your roommate if they have an extra pen. P.S. Containers like this one are also great to store makeup brushes or toiletries in your bathroom!


  1. Dry Erase Board

Keep yourself organized, remind yourself about tests and projects, leave messages for your roommates, or tape up some photos from home – all you need is a little bit of wall space.


  1. Storage Seat

When it comes to decorating your dorm for maximum efficiency, you need to use every small-space hack you can find, and there are two things you always need more of in a small dorm room – seating and storage. This ottoman helps with both of those problems! It is super comfortable to use as a chair when your new group of friends comes over, and the top comes off so you can store extra blankets, shoes, or books.


  1. Plant

Greenery can bring any space to life, but in case your school has limitations on bringing real plants into the dorm, prevent the risk of getting written up by bringing this cute faux plant instead. Plus, you’ll never need to worry about your roommate overwatering it.


  1. Bedding

Don’t cut corners when it comes to your bedding comfort (or style). You’ll likely be sleeping on the same sheets for the duration of your college career, so spring for a comforter set that’ll only get better with time. This floral set is 100% cotton so it’s extra soft, almost like falling asleep in a bed of flowers.


It’s hard to feel motivated when your space is totally bland. Legends Outlets is here to help take your dorm room to the next level and create a space you and your friends will love to hang out in.

Rush Ready: Sorority Recruitment Outfits


Released 7/11/22


It’s nearly that time of the year – let’s talk sorority recruitment fashion! Whether you have been preparing all summer or just decided you want to go through the process, finding the perfect recruitment wardrobe isn’t easy. Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up some of the best outfits to wear for each round that will have you feeling comfortable, confident, and ready to rock recruitment!



You’ve finally arrived at your new home for the next 4 years, and it’s time to meet the sororities! The open house round is the most casual round, and it’s all about being comfy and confident! If your school provides a t-shirt to wear for this round, pair it with a skirt or pair of shorts in a fun color or pattern, like this checkered pair from Aeropostale. A flowy sundress is another great option for this round if your school does not provide a Panhellenic t-shirt. We recommend choosing something breathable and light, like this floral minidress from Forever 21, so you can keep cool in the hot summer sun. Casual sandals or clean, white sneakers are a great option since you’ll be doing tons of walking and discovering your new campus all day long. Spice up your outfits with fun accessories that show off your personality – we love these bright earrings from Francesca’s that add a pop of color and unique personality to your outfit!

  1. Daisy Earrings, Francesca’s
  2. Checkered Shorts, Aeropostale
  3. Sandals, Tory Burch
  4. Bead Earrings, Francesca’s
  5. Mini Dress, Forever 21
  6. White Sneakers, Tory Burch



Round two is the philanthropy round, where you’ll learn about the charity each sorority supports. Schools typically provide t-shirts to wear for this round, so make sure to accessorize to stand out! Headbands are soooo in, and you can never go wrong with a fun pair of earrings! When it comes to bottoms, we recommend skirts, like this purple wrap skirt from Forever 21, or a pair of shorts like these from Francesca’s. When it comes to shoes, you can keep it casual with a pair of sandals or opt to dress up your look with a pair of chunky heels.

  1. Pressed Flower Earrings, Francesca’s
  2. Brown Shorts, Francesca’s
  3. Chunky Heels, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse
  4. Beaded Headband, Francesca’s
  5. Wrap Skirt, Forever 21
  6. Sandals, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse



Now that you’ve started narrowing down your chapters, it’s time to dress to impress – think what you would wear to family brunch or a friend’s birthday dinner. Dresses and heels or wedges is the perfect sisterhood round uniform. Look for a dress in a fun pattern or shape, like this one with puff sleeves, that will make you stand out in the crowd. Sandals and sneakers are too informal for this round, so we recommend wedges or chunky heels so you can still be comfortable after walking for miles.

  1. Butterfly Earrings, Francesca’s
  2. Puff-Sleeve Dress, Forever 21
  3. Chunky Heels, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse
  4. Arch Earrings, Francesca’s
  5. Floral Midi Dress, Aeropostale
  6. Clear Wedges, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse



After a long week you are finally nearing the end of recruitment and it’s time for the preference round! It can be hard to not change the way you like to dress or act in order to impress the chapters, but they are looking for your most authentic self, inside and out, so you should wear something that feels like you! Since this is the most formal of the rounds, save your best look for last. We recommend wearing a dress, either short or midi like something you would wear to a wedding.  Add sleek heels and simple jewelry for the finishing touches to your outfit.

  1. Teardrop Hoops, Francesca’s
  2. Maxi Dress, Express Factory Outlet
  3. Braided Heels, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse
  4. Pearl Hoops, Francesca’s
  5. Lace Dress, Francesca’s
  6. Nude Heels, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse


Whatever you wear, make sure that it expresses your personal style and makes you feel confident. With over 75 leading designer and brand-name outlet stores in one convenient location, Legends Outlets makes finding the perfect recruitment wardrobe easy!

Best Skincare & Makeup to Try This Summer


Released 7/5/22


Summer is full of wonderful things, but melting foundation, smeared mascara, and sticky lipstick are not among them. Summer-proof your skincare and makeup routine with our top picks from Sephora that will have you looking natural, fresh and confident even when you’re sweating on those hot days.


  1. Tinted Moisturizer

The last thing you want to wear on a hot summer day is a thick layer of makeup. Tinted moisturizer is the perfect replacement for foundation when you want that natural, no-makeup makeup look and feel.


  1. Lip Gloss

Our lip gloss is poppin’! Gone are the days of drying, matte lipsticks. Say hello to juicy, moisturized lips for summer! We love this one by Fenty because it is super-shiny, not sticky, and has multiple shades that flatter all skin tones.


  1. Sunscreen

Protecting your skin is the single most important thing to do each summer but finding the perfect sunscreen can be a chore. This one is water and sweat resistant, has SPF 40 and doubles as a makeup-gripping primer, so you can be sure that your makeup will last all day while protecting your face from the sun’s harmful rays.


  1. Self-Tanning Mousse

Having a beautiful tan is a top goal for summer but laying in the sun for hours on end doesn’t do our skin any favors. Boost your glow without any harmful UV damage by using a self-tanning mousse, like this one by Isle of Paradise. You can achieve that post-beach bronze with just a few swipes of a mitt.


  1. Cream Bronzer

When it comes to summer weather, we’re staying far away from powder products that will leave us looking cakey. A cream bronzer is the perfect product to add a sun-kissed glow to our cheeks in the most natural-looking way. This bronzer by Fenty not only blends into the skin effortlessly every time, but it is also sweat and water-resistant, so you’ll look like a bronzed goddess all day long.


  1. Oil Control Serum

For many of us, hot weather = an oily face. If you struggle with getting extra shiny during the summer months, you’re not alone. Stop the oiliness before it starts with a niacinamide and zinc serum that regulates excess oil, reduces the appearance of blemishes, and brightens your skin tone.


  1. Liquid Blush

As far as we’re concerned, blush is the MVP of any makeup routine. Adding just a touch of color to your cheeks can boost your look from drab to fab in seconds. This liquid blush by Rare Beauty has been alllll over TikTok, and if you love a blush with color that packs a punch and lasts all day, it will be your new favorite too.


  1. Waterproof Mascara

A good mascara should be reliable, if nothing else – especially when it comes to waterproof options. While some mascara can result in smudgy eyes and dramatic mascara tears, the right waterproof formula will stand up against even the sweatiest summer weather. Our top pick is this one from Lancôme that gives your lashes instant lift, length, and volume that won’t flake or smudge when wet.


  1. Concealer

We’re all about natural makeup looks in the summertime, but somedays you need a little extra coverage. Dark circles from staying out too late? Woke up with a new breakout? This concealer by Nars will brighten and correct any imperfections, leaving your skin with a natural and soft finish.


Whether you’re on the hunt for a sunscreen, bronzer, or moisturizer, getting into the summer state of mind is easy (and affordable) at Legends Outlets.

3. Beach Towel, Vera Bradley

Whether your beach plans include laying out or riding the waves, a good beach towel is a must-have. This one from Vera Bradley is extra-large and soooo soft, making it comfortable to lay on while you catch up on your favorite book, but also super absorbent to keep you dry after surfing, snorkeling, or swimming.


4. Bikini and Sarong, Hollister

We all need a go-to swimsuit for the summer, and Hollister never disappoints! We love this blue swirl pattern, especially because it comes in multiple different top and bottom styles, so you are sure to find the perfect bikini with just the right amount of coverage. This matching bikini and sarong will take you from the pool to the beach to the boardwalk and beyond!


5. Tinted Sunscreen, Sephora

Other than your swimsuit, sun protection is the most important thing you need this summer. Whether you love to wear makeup or prefer the more natural look, finding the perfect mix of protection and coverage can be a hassle. Enter – tinted sunscreen. This one from Sephora is fragrance-free with SPF 30 and is perfect to cover up an uneven skin tone or any blemishes.


6. Dress Coverup, Hollister

A swimsuit coverup so cute and comfy, you’ll be spotted in it on and off the beach! This bright and fun towel dress is made of terry, the IT fabric of the season, and the halter neckline and keyhole detail are oh-so-stylish.


7. Brumate Hopsulater Slim, DEMDACO

Nothing is worse than taking a swig of a warm drink on a hot summer day. Sip back and relax with a Brumate that is triple insulated, ensuring every last drop of your favorite summer sipper is just as ice cold as the first.


8. Woven Bag, Tory Burch Outlet

Sunscreen ✔️, snacks ✔️, sandals ✔️. A large beach bag is a must for any pool party or beach day, and this one from Tory Burch is sturdy but light, and spacious enough to fit all your summer essentials.


9. Sandals, Tory Burch Outlet

Need a new go-to summer sandal? Look no further! This pair from Tory Burch is your new summer staple. The woven strap screams summertime, and the colorful pom poms are the perfect playful touch.

Spring Looks for Less


Released 4/6/22


The sun is out, hemlines are rising, and bright, bold colors are dominating the streets. It can mean only one thing: spring has sprung, and it’s time to embrace the styles of the new season. After scouring the runways for spring’s hottest trends, we’ve rounded up the best of the best – and found dupes that won’t break the bank. From all things platform and bright (hello, neon!) to micro miniskirts and crochet everything, it’s all about making a statement with your outfit.



From sky-high heels and boots to sandals and sneakers, shoes this season are amped up for a throwback-inspired lift. So, go ahead and give your micro-heels a break – 2022 is alllll about chunky soles. Pair your platforms with long, wide-leg pants for a retro look or show them off with a shorter style.

Wednesday’s won’t be the only day we wear pink this season. The Barbie-inspired hue has been spotted everywhere, from the runway to awards shows to celebrity street style. The cheerful color looks good on every skin tone and works for any age, and unlike other hot 2022 trends, like cut-outs or corset tops, bright pink can be made to fit any sense of style. Pop on a pair of pink sunglasses or be the fashionista of your office in a bright blazer, and you’ll fit in with the trend just as well as someone sporting head-to-toe fuchsia. However you want to wear it, hot pink is here to stay and liven up your year.

There have been a handful of early 2000s trends to resurface in recent months, like baby tees and low-rise jeans. Add miniskirts to the resurgence of aughts fashion taking over the world and your TikTok feed. Try pairing your miniskirt with a collared top under a sweatshirt, or with an oversized blazer and tall boots for a more mature and balanced look. And while you might think this item only works for hotter temps, you can carry it into fall with a pair of tights with ease.

Life is good.

Halter tops may be synonymous with the late ‘90s and early aughts, but 2022 is the year of their revival. We took note of the neckline in a handful of designer collection, and many celebrities are getting on board, proving that nostalgia has made its way into our closets and it’s here to stay with the hottest trend to make a comeback: the halter.



  1. Striped Halter Dress, Hollister
  2. Green Crochet Halter Top, Hollister

For what seemed like forever, we gave skinny jeans and leggings our undivided attention, but the days of squeezing into skinny jeans are behind us. Say hello to your new best friend – wide leg pants. Loose fitting pants have become a street style favorite and are a comfy clothing option to help ease you out of your regular rotation of sweatpants. From baggy jeans to cargo pants, celebrities have inspired us to let loose.

Sheina’s Top Fitness Picks


Released 1/27/22


We caught up with local fitness influencer and soon-to-be mother of two, Sheina Fernandes, to see how she is staying fit in the new year! Knowing the most common New Year’s resolutions are related to health, we asked Sheina to shop for some must-have items to help you reach your fitness goals this year. Keep reading to find out Sheina’s Top Fitness Picks and where to find them at Legends Outlets.


1 & 2: Cropped Sweatshirt and Leggings, Puma Outlet


Every great workout starts with a cute outfit! Sheina likes to start her fitness routine by warming up in a comfortable sweatshirt, like this edgy camouflage one from Puma Outlet! She paired it with these modern shiny leggings that feature dryCELL technology to help combat sweat and keep you dry throughout your workout.


3: Wireless Headphones, BAM!

During warmer weather, Sheina prefers to go for long walks or runs outside! She’s tested many different kinds of headphones and recommends this wireless, over-the-ear option from Books-A-Million. While earbuds tend to fall out during a sweaty cardio session, these are guaranteed to stay on throughout your workout.


4: The Bloated Belly Book, BAM! 


Before a workout session, Sheina likes to fuel up with something healthy and nutritious, like her favorite breakfast meal or daytime snack: Avocado Toast! She doesn’t cut carbs or deprive herself of foods she truly enjoys eating, but she does cook most of her meals at home using fresh, seasonal ingredients. For those who need a little help in the kitchen, Sheina recommends shopping for a fun new cookbook with healthy recipes, cooking tips and tricks, like this one from Books-A-Million.


5: Glute Band, T.J. Maxx

Sheina’s favorite piece of home workout equipment is her glute band because it is sooooooo versatile and can be used for tons of different exercises (think leg raises, squats, pelvic thrusts, and more)! Staying fit is especially important during pregnancy, and the glute band allows Sheina to get a killer burn while keeping her workout low impact and safe. Added bonus: Glute bands are inexpensive, small, easy-to-store, and perfect for travel!


6: Stability Ball, T.J. Maxx

A stability ball, like this one from T.J. Maxx, is another staple in Sheina’s home gym. She uses it every single day and said it’s extremely effective for core conditioning, as well as improving balance and flexibility. It’s also great for lower back exercises – with a growing baby bump it’s important to keep the back strong, which is just another way Sheina incorporates the stability ball into her fitness routine!


7: Sneakers, Adidas  

For Sheina, comfort and style are two of the most important things in a shoe. She was drawn to this pair from Adidas for its gold and pink accents, and the killer price was an added bonus! Sheina likes to shop smart and save money when buying new athletic shoes, making Legends Outlets the perfect place to score a new pair.


8: Sports Bra, Victoria’s Secret

Whether you’re walking, lifting weights, or doing yoga, investing in a high-quality sports bra can improve your overall workout experience. Sheina recommends a comfortable and supportive bra, especially during pregnancy (the more support the better). This durable (and adorable) option from Victoria’s Secret provides compression, bounce control and maximum support. Plus, the front zipper makes this bra nursing friendly.


Be sure to follow Sheina on Instagram for more lifestyle tips, and visit Legends Outlets to score these awesome fitness finds. Here’s to the healthiest version of you in 2022!

7. Illuminating Face Drops: Tan Luxe’s self-tan drops are the IT face tanner for influencers and celebrities alike, and your new go-to product. Just add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer and let the transformation happen: a radiant, natural-looking glow without the sun damage!


8. Self Tanner: Achieve a sunkissed glow straight from the French Riviera with St. Tropez, a lightweight bronzing mousse from Beauty Brands that’s designed to give you a healthy, natural-looking tan without the zebra stripes or orange undertones! No oompa-loompa outcome, here.


9. Drinkware: Summer time = lots of vitamin “sea” and bubbly. Bring a chic twist to your patio sips with these unique, Bombay glasses from HomeGoods. If you love to host, you’ll love serving your guests a refreshing beverage in these even more!


10. Face Sunscreen: SPF is always a must but especially in the summer. We recommend a lightweight face SPF that doubles as a makeup primer, like the Clinique Superdefense Sunscreen from Cosmetics Company. Not only does it provide powerful protection against UVA and UVB rays, but it also has a hint of color! AKA, it’s basically a multi-tasking savior for your skin.

College Graduation Gift Guide


Released 5/6/21

1: Tote Bag, Tory Burch. 2: Messenger Bag, Coach Outlet. 3: Watch, Michael Kors Outlet. 4: Cookbooks, BAM. 5: French Press, HomeGoods. 6: Duffle Bag, Michael Kors Outlet.


Cheers to graduation season! It’s time to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter and the end of another. Stumped on what to get the grad in your life? Whether they are graduating high school and about to move out for the first time or graduating college and entering the workforce, let them know how proud you are with a gift from the heart. Our graduation gift guide features something every grad will appreciate from meaningful keepsakes and timeless staples to inspiring reminders and practical necessities. Read on for ideas to celebrate your college grad’s major milestone!


Tote Bag & Brief Case

Every young professional needs a sturdy and versatile bag to transport their essentials (emergency snacks) from meetings to interviews to networking events and back to the desk. Give that special grad a wardrobe staple for years to come like Coach Outlet’s trendy + modern take on the classic briefcase and a chic + roomy tote from Tory Burch Outlet.



What time is it? Time to get a watch. (we see you rolling your eyes 😉) The age-old dad joke has some truth to it… while it might be okay to miss a class or walk into a lecture 20 minutes late, this is not going to fly in their new 9-5 life. Give your grad the gift of a polished + professional watch that can be worn for years to come and ~watch~ them never be late again. (No promises)



Dining Halls and tailgates are a thing of the past. Enter: the “real world” of grocery shopping, meal prepping and using the oven for cooking rather than storage. A cookbook is perfect for teaching new, basic tips and easy dishes while inspiring the experienced chefs to get creative with new techniques and unexpected flavors. Pro tip: cookbooks can double as décor- choose a cover that matches not only your grad palette but their style too!


French Press

If sentimental isn’t your strong suit, no worries! Give that grad something they didn’t even know they needed: a French Press! The post-college job hunt requires coffee, coffee and more coffee. With a French press, your grad will be able to make an ultra-smooth + flavorful cup of joe to get them through the application and interview process. Bonus: the press doesn’t take up much space so your grad can bring it to work when they land that job!



New beginnings mean it’s time to retire the old, teenage duffle bag and upgrade their luggage. Go the extra mile and gift them a first-class, timeless carry-on bag for all their new adventures in life. They will be itching to go on a work-trip as soon as they see it.



Congratulations to all the grads out there, proud parents and loved ones! From strutting across the stage and tossing the cap, commemorate all their accomplishments with a gift from Legends Outlets, a place full of unique, meaningful, and affordable gifts. Let the celebrations begin!



High School Graduation Gift Guide


Released 5/6/21

1: Puma Tennis Shoes, Puma. 2: Coffee & Coffee Mug, HomeGoods. 3. Cardholders, Kate Spade Outlet, Tory Burch Outlet. 4: Book, journal, colored pencils, Demdaco. 5. Picture Frames, Francesca’s. 6. Blanket, HomeGoods.


Cheers to graduation season! It’s time to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter and the end of another. Stumped on what to get the grad in your life? Whether they are graduating high school and about to move out for the first time or graduating college and entering the workforce, let them know how proud you are with a gift from the heart. Our graduation gift guide features something every grad will appreciate from meaningful keepsakes and timeless staples to inspiring reminders and practical necessities. Read on for ideas to celebrate your high school grad’s major milestone!


Reliable Tennis Shoes

Getting from class to class in college is no walk in the park. Going from the library to lecture to the dining hall and making it to class on the other side of the planet is basically cardio. Every high school grad needs a quality + comfy pair of tennis shoes to hustle across campus in. Bonus points for a shoe they can slip on as soon as they hit their alarm clock!


Study Fuel (aka coffee)

Nothing says, “look out world, I’m coming for you”, better than a student fueled by coffee. Give your soon-to-be college student a gift they will actually use: caffeine and something to put it in (aka a cute mug)! Pro tip: a mug can double as a pen holder or a makeup brush holder!



If you don’t lose your university ID at least once, are you even in college? Help your grad keep their important cards safe and all in one place with a chic cardholder from Kate Spade Outlet or Tory Burch Outlet. They will love the vibrant color, so they won’t lose it and it’s small size so it fits in any bag. Plus, it’s made with quality Italian leather, making it last through all their adventures from freshman to senior year and beyond!


Desk & Doodle Essentials

A new beginning calls for new desk essentials! There is nothing more satisfying than cracking opening a new notebook and filling it’s pages with fresh ideas, thoughts, and doodles. Inspire your grad to get creative, stay organized and take on whatever is thrown their way with the help of fun + bold desk accessories featuring empowering words for when they need a reminder.


Picture Frame

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a trendy picture frame featuring a memory of you + the grad is worth a thousand words plus a spot in their future dorm! This sweet idea will put a smile on their face for years to come; it’s sentimental and adds a little bit of home to a new environment. 😊 Good luck choosing your favorite memory!


Cozy Blanket

The next best thing to a hug is wrapping up in a blanket from someone you love! Whether your grad is planning a move across the country for school or simply moving to the next town, a thick, cozy blanket from you to them will offer a sense of calm when they feel homesick, stressed, uncertain or just plain cold during the winter months.


Congratulations to all the grads out there, proud parents and loved ones! From strutting across the stage and tossing the cap, commemorate all their accomplishments with a gift from Legends Outlets, a place full of unique, meaningful, and affordable gifts. Let the celebrations begin!

Spring + Summer Must-Have Accessories


Released 4/13/21

1: Beaded Bracelets, J. Crew Factory. 2: Earrings, Francesca’s. 3: Beaded Necklace, J. Crew Factory. 4: Layered Chain Necklace, H&M. 5: Ray-Bans, Sunglass Hut. 6: Fur Slides, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse. 7: Pearl Choker, Ann Taylor Factory. 8: Mini Purse, Coach Outlet.


If your outfit is the ice cream, then accessories are the cherry on top. The sprinkles, the hot fudge drizzle, the toppings that turn something plain into a delicious masterpiece. If you like to play it safe when it comes to your #ootd (and your ice cream flavors), accessories are your chance to have fun and experiment with the latest trends without investing too much $$$ or closet space. Spring + summer’s must-have accessories include bold, colorful pieces, classic gems, and unexpected footwear to name a few. Want to know which accessory trends are in the limelight this season? Check out our top 8 trends below + style tips on how to rock them!


1. Colorful Beads

Colorful beads have returned to the scene and no, we are not talking about the bracelets you made at sleepovers. Beaded chokers, multi-layer necklaces, bracelets and statement earrings in tropical, vibrant hues are an easy way to take your spring + summer ootd to the next level. Beachy, bohemian, and brunch ready!


2. Statement Earrings

Branch out from your classic studs and turn heads with a pair of statement earrings! Expect to see crushed metal, super-sized hoops, and drop earrings everywhere this season. The goal? Earrings big, bold, and colorful enough to see from outer space (or on that next Zoom meeting 😉). Statement earrings are an easy way to have some fun with your look, especially if you’re still dipping your toes into the accessory game.


3. Layers

Layer, layer, layer. While we’re all for rocking a statement pendant solo, the layered necklace trend is having a moment. Layering your necklaces is an instant way to create a fresh and new look. Mix and match different lengths, sizes and textures for a style that’s all your own. Pair shorter, dainty chains with thicker styles. Add a short, beaded necklace to the mix for a bohemian vibe or a strand of pearls *cough cough…accessory #8 * for extra detail. No matter how you choose to rock this look, you really can’t go wrong!


4. Chunky Chains

The most versatile look of the season award goes to chains. From chunky chokers and bracelets to earrings and purse straps, bold links are commanding the spotlight and we’re okay with it. Chunky chains instantly elevate any look and can be styled with almost anything. Throw on a chain necklace with a floral blouse or dress for some edge, add some fresh fun to your go-to jeans with a chunky chain belt, or keep it simple with chain-link, long earrings.


5. Sunglasses

Ring ring, the 90’s are calling! The retro, geometry-inspired shades are making a comeback this season and math has never looked so good. Protect your eyes from the rays and elevate your look with a pair of square-shaped rims with colorful lenses in shades like lilac, pink, and blue. Despite the tinted lenses, these cool sunnies will go with everything in your closet and every situation; from the pool to the farmer’s market to lunch and BBQ’s. Prepare to fall in love and never take them off.


6. Fur Slides

Say ‘see ya later’ to your boots with the fur and hello to slides with the fur. Yes, the slippers you know and love are now acceptable to wear past the mailbox of your house and into the world. Fur slides, the it shoe of the ‘gram this season, are youthful, comfortable, and an easy way to take your tee and jeans to the next trend level. From pastel hues and animal print to rainbow shag and beyond, the options for happy feet are endless.


7. Pearls

Nothing commands respect more than a lady in pearls. In a sea of ever-changing trends, the classic pearl has stood the test of time, and this season proves it’s not just for royalty. Channel your inner Coco Chanel, Michelle Obama, or Audrey Hepburn with a single strand pearl necklace to achieve a look that’s elegant + chic. Layer pearls with chains to add a feminine touch to an edgy ensemble. Remember, pearls aren’t just for the neck! Rock the trend with pearl barrettes, pearl drop earrings, charm bracelets, or opt for the simple but always classic pearl studs.


8. Miniature Bags

When your oversized bag is one part pharmacy, one part makeup drawer, and all in all an endless hole of wrappers, receipts, pennies, and pockets – finding your phone is basically a sweat session at the gym. Finding your card at the checkout counter should be considered an Olympic sport. In walks the hero of the season: mini phone bags, AKA a fuss-free purse created for our extra limb, lifeline and the number one accessory of the 21st century. A cute crossbody or waist bag keeps your hands free for convenience and your essentials close. Talk about a win-win.


Whether you like to keep it simple and traditional, or you can’t get enough arm candy and bling, Legends Outlets has everything you need to incorporate the must-have spring + summer accessory into your collection.

Jeans for Every Body


Released 3/16/21


If you don’t own 20 pairs of jeans before finding the “one”, are you even human? For many, the journey to finding your favorite pair of jeans is as exhausting, frustrating, and as time consuming as dating. From 50 shades of denim and countless styles to wide leg, skinny and straight, to high rise, low rise, and everything in between, the denim selection has never been more diverse (and for good reason). Finding your favorite pair of jeans is about choosing a pair that makes you feel confident, beautiful, and fits your own style and body- not whatever the current “on-trend” mold happens to be. And there’s nothing more stylish than someone wearing an outfit that fits them just right – especially when it comes to jeans!

Read on for our take on today’s denim trends + our style tips to help you find the perfect pair of jeans for YOU!



According to Gen Z, skinny jeans are so yesterday. Well, we’re here to tell you they’re not going anywhere yet! The Skinny Jean has come a long way over the last several years. Gone are the days of wearing ultra-tight, can’t-bend-over-without-risking-a-ripped-situation jean. Most importantly, gone are the days of cutting off your circulation for the sake of fashion. Enter: the skinny jeans of today; soft, breathable, and flattering on every body type. Skinny jeans have the power to transition from polished and office-ready, to out on the town and everywhere in between.


— Opt for more structured fabrics; you’ll get a lot more wear out of them.

— Avoid jeans that have a high percentage of spandex (the tag will tell you the ratio of fabrics used).

— To achieve a longer, leaner look: Stick to higher-waisted, dark-washed denim with minimal distressing. This gives you a clean line from the smallest part of your waist to the smallest part of your ankles. Hello, legs for days!

— Length: Should hit just above the skinniest part of your ankle – if regulars are typically too short or too long on you, look for stores that offer more sizing options such as tall, short, petite, etc. (Check out the handy sizing chart at the end.)



The jean of the ‘gram is here to stay. Reason number 6980 we ❤️ straight-leg jeans: everyone and their mother can rock them (seriously, they don’t get the nickname ‘Mom Jeans’ for nothin’!). The 90’s inspired silhouette hugs you in all the right places and looks flattering on all body types. Reason number 6981 we ❤️ straight-leg jeans: they’re versatile enough to pair with heels, boots, AND tennis shoes…talk about a win-win-win! From high-waist and exposed button fly to cropped and slim ankle, the number of styles within the straight-leg family are not lacking, which means everyone can find the fit that works best for them.


— Finding the perfect fit is key for this denim style. Grab a pair that sits at or slightly above your belly button and hugs your booty. The thigh area should be somewhat fitted but not overly tight.

— Need a little extra room? Look for fits that are specifically made for curvier body types. The “boyfriend” style could also make a great alternative. (More on this category below!)

— The bottoms of your beloved mom jeans should taper down for a more relaxed fit and shouldn’t be tight around your calves and ankles.



Wide-eyed, wide-leg beauty. Turn your look from casual to sophisticated with these bold, retro-inspired jeans! We get it…this style of denim can be intimidating at first glance but it’s all about balance. Not sure what to wear up top? Try a crop top or something more form-fitting to contrast the volume below and to help accentuate your waist. Generally speaking, ladies with longer legs can pull this style off with a bit more ease than those who are shorter in height. However, petites can definitely rock this look with the right pair!


— If you’re on the shorter side, look for high-waisted, full-length styles to help elongate the legs, stick to neutral colors, and throw on a pair of pointed-toe shoes.

— Avoid drowning in fabric by tucking in your tops (cue Tan France’s French Tuck trick) and add a slim belt for extra detail.

— Not ready for this much flare? Test the waters with a slimmer opening where the jean flares from the ankle.



Boyfriend not required. This street-style favorite embodies that ‘cool kid on the block’ (or at brunch 😉) vibes – all while providing supreme comfort.
Swap your yoga pants (gasp, how dare we!) with a pair of slouchy, laid-back boyfriend jeans for a look that’s both effortless and ultra stylish for all your off-duty activities. Like straight-leg jeans, boyfriend jeans come in a variety of styles: cuffed, ripped, oversized, high-waisted and more. This style of denim can complement just about all body types, but of course finding the right fit is key!


— Boyfriend jeans are meant to look lived-in and slightly oversized, but we recommend finding a cut that’s not overly baggy on you for the most flattering look.

— Because we need another reason to love this style, boyfriend jeans can be dressed up or down. Pair with sneakers for a casual ootd or elevate your look with a pair of kitten heels!

— Similar to styling a wide-leg jean, a fitted top will compliment this looser fitting jean (especially on petites). Remember, it’s all about finding that perfect balance.



Bootcut jeans are back! Before you start having flashbacks of bedazzled pockets, floral patches and sequins galore, you can rest easy; the comeback denim of the year is far more refined and wearable for all ages and sizes. Bootcut jeans are truly flattering on everyone when the length is correct. While you can get away with sizing up with boyfriend jeans and straight leg jeans, bootcut jeans look best when they are hugging your curves in alllll the right places.


— Look for higher-waisted options and darker washes to help lengthen your legs. Stay away from rips with this style!

— Do not cuff bootcut jeans and avoid tennis shoes! A pointed or almond-toe shoe looks extra sleek, and a heel most definitely won’t hurt (to look at, anyways).

— Show off that gorgeous shape! Avoid looking boxy by pairing your bootcuts with a more fitted top, bodysuit or tucked in shirt (lightweight sweaters are also a great option for spring and fall). No long tops!


Phew! So many styles, so much time to shop! Whether you’re looking for a tried and blue staple that complements your busy schedule (and all the tops in your closet), or you’re on the hunt for a statement-making pair that makes you feel confident and beautiful in your #ootd post, Legends Outlets has you covered on all the best denim styles for every beautiful body at every price point!


Check out our sizing chart below to help guide you on your journey to finding that perfect pair. Cheers & happy shopping!

How to Create a Home Workspace like a Pro


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!

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.

  • Long-sleeved tee: J.Crew Factory
  • Notebook: BAM Books-a-Million

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!



Back-to-School Style Guide: High School


Released 8/12/20


Welcome back to school, KC! Can you believe we made it? It’s been awhile, and we all might be a little out of practice, but it is, indeed, time to head back to class, and we at the Legends Outlets will have you looking stylish with these top trends for Back-to-School.


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.



Back-to-School Style Guide: College


Released 8/12/20


Welcome back to school, KC! Can you believe we made it? It’s been awhile, and we all might be a little out of practice, but it is, indeed, time to head back to class, and we at the Legends Outlets will have you looking stylish with these top trends for Back-to-School.


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
  • Converse Shoes: Off Broadway Shoes
  • Backpack: Wilsons Leather


Pro Tip for college kids: Invest in a good pair of sneakers that are comfortable to walk in!



Back-to-School Style Guide: Teacher


Released 8/12/20


Welcome back to school, KC! Can you believe we made it? It’s been awhile, and we all might be a little out of practice, but it is, indeed, time to head back to class, and we at the Legends Outlets will have you looking stylish with these top trends for Back-to-School.


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.

Spring Prints for the Win


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.



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.



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.



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


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.

Valentine’s Day Fashion Guide


Released 2/7/20


Valentine’s Day, but make it fashion. Whether you’re going out on the town with your girls, or to dinner with your Valentine, we’ve got you covered on pieces that pay tribute to the romantic and fun spirit of the day without dressing in head-to-toe hearts. Add pops of pink and red (all shades welcome!) to your outfit for a look that’s festive enough to wear on V-Day, but versatile enough to wear any other day.


1: Heart Scarf from Loft Outlet: This silk, heart-printed scarf from Loft Outlet is a chic, easy and subtle way to add some V-Day flare to any look! Plus, there are so many different ways to wear it.

2: Designer Satchel from Kate Spade Outlet: This purse is 50 shades of Valentine’s, and we’re here for it. The color combination is a sophisticated take on the typical V-Day palette, which makes it great for everyday use. Large enough to store all of your date night or GNO necessities, this high quality, leather bag will never go out of style.







3: Heart Sweater from Kate Spade Outlet: We experienced love at first sight with this fun and cozy turtleneck sweater. If this doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day, we don’t know what does! If you’re going for a flirty ensemble, pair this sweater with a midi skirt. If edgy is more your vibe for the night, wear it with a pair of distressed jeans and leather jacket.







4: Pink Coat from Banana Republic Factory Store: Stand out and keep warm wherever your Valentine’s Day plans take you in this bold, pink coat – a fun yet still sophisticated take on the standard topcoat! BONUS: Pink coats are a major trend this season!

7: Open Heart Barrette Set from Francesca’s: If you didn’t already know, hair clips and barrettes have returned, and what better day to bring out the trend than Valentine’s Day? Add a touch of fun to your luscious locks with these heart barrettes! Ultra-cute, feminine and V-Day approved.

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


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.



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



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



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


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!



Festive Fashions for the Family


Released 12/21/19


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?



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!



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.



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.



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


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! 



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!  



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



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



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.

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


Released 10/11/19

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!

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)!



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!



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!



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...


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… 



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! 



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.



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!



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 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!



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!



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


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.

Easy Fall Updates for Your Home


Released 9/16/19

Autumn is upon us! From Halloween to Thanksgiving, and each football game, bonfire, and pumpkin-spice everything in between, we are here for it! Take a look at a few of our favorite ideas to add a little fall flair to your home without overhauling your decor or budget … 



Smell is one of our most powerful senses and it is reportedly directly linked to our memories. Reminisce about grandma’s pumpkin pie, or sipping cider with your loved ones, or roasting marshmallows with a totally extensive line of autumn-inspired fragrances for every room of your home from Bath and Body Works! 

Pictured here, left to right: room spray, foaming hand soap, Wallflowers scented plug-in refills, decorative Wallflower plug-in fragrance diffuser, and a signature three-wick candle



A fast and affordable way to add fall flair to your home decor is by sticking with your existing color scheme and infusing some subtle nods to the season. With a variety of sizes and colors, you’re sure to find a stylish squash to spruce up your display! 




Pictured here: matte rose gold pumpkin with a brass stem, shiny mercury glass gourds in a variety of sizes, turquoise pumpkin with an intricately designed stem, and a lovely golden hand-blown glass pumpkin, all from Home Goods.



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!



Pictured here: ultra plush faux-fur throw by Kate Spade and beaded pumpkin pillows, all from T.J. Maxx.

Fall Transitional Pieces for Back-to-School


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! 



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 







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









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 






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


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


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!


Summer Style for Every Occasion


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!



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!


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!


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!


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!


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


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


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!






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 …  




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!




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.





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


Released 6/6/19


Live music, day drinking and flower crowns as far as the eye can see can only mean one thing, festival season is here! Festivals are the time to have fun and let loose, so why not do the same with your outfit? This is your chance to express yourself and experiment with trends you’ve been wanting to try. Don’t be afraid! Festivals are a no-judgement zone, so go bananas with all the fringe, boho prints and crochet crop tops your heart desires. From Boulevardia right here in Kansas City, to Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and everywhere in between, Legends has everything you need to get festival ready.


Easy Breezy: Stay comfy and chic from the first set to the encore in this outfit from Francesca’s. 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! Keep the sun out of your eyes with a pair of statement sunglasses and beachy straw hat.

Tips for Outfitting Your Grad


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!






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!



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!



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.



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!



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


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.



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.



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. 


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.



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


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!





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.


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.


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!


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.


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”


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!



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!



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.



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.



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


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!

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 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 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.


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.

Summer Shoe Trends


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.

What to Wear: Spring Transitional 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!


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.


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


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!


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.


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.


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.


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!

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.

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.

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.

Back-to-School Fashion for Students of All Ages


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.

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!
