Fall Fashion Staples – Closet Confessions

As the “chilly” season approaches, the fashion at Scheels is just warming up. Fall brings boots, chunky sweaters and a staple-layering piece: scarves. Adding boots or a scarf to any outfit can instantly turn the look from summer to autumn.

Chunky sweaters are back and we couldn’t be more excited. When looking for the perfect fall sweater, choose something warm in color (deep colors of red, brown, green, and blue) and chunky knit in aesthetics. Cable knits are a great way to add volume to a solid color sweater without looking bulky. The more oversized a sweater is, the more you can add additional layering. For a comfy, low-key look; pair an oversized sweater with skinny denim jeans and a knee-high boot.

Cold weather booties and boots have become a staple item for every woman’s closet. Boots are best paired with a legging or denim jean. When worn with leggings, boots should be mid-calf or knee-high. This helps cover the calf and disguise the leg-thickening effect leggings can create. When pairing with denim jeans, riding boots are best. This provides a more polished and classic look. When searching for the perfect fall boot, keep color and accents in mind. Deep fall colors are again best, especially when accented with copper buckles.

A scarf is the perfect accessory for fall. Whether thick or thin, this piece is a must have. The best way to wear a scarf is to loosely drape it around your neck letting the ends fall free, leaving a generous gap between your neck and the fabric. As the weather turns colder, a snugger wrap-around is best. Another way to wear it is to form a knot near the bottom. This looks best with a thicker weaved scarf. To amp up your look, choose a scarf with a pattern (plaid is popular) or multiple colors (watercolor). To tone it down, choose a longer scarf with a solid color. This allows for a cozier look, whether going to a game or simply out for a stroll.

Attain that perfect fall look by expanding your closet to include sweaters, boots and scarves. These three pieces can finish off any outfit that needs a fresh look for autumn. The tips and tricks above will have you looking cozy and keep you warm as the winter season approaches.


Shred in Style with Burton this Winter

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to relax a little and focus on our favorite winter activities. One of the most popular sports during the snowy months is snowboarding, so SCHEELS is here with the best gear packages to get you out on the slopes.



For action-packed pop and lightweight performance, we’ve chosen the Men’s Process Flying V board. The upgraded Super Fly II™ core creates an even lighter, lift-off-ready deck, while Squeezebox core profiling transfers energy towards the tip and tail for snappier ollies and effortless stability. The process is suited for the freestyler, but is still capable of all-mountain action as proven by the pros. This board is available in select SCHEELS stores only.

ProcessFlyingV copy



BEND: Camber. Powerful, poppy, and precise. Offering a snappy suspension, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail.

SHAPE: Twin Shape, perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch.

FLEX: Twin Flex. The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile regular or switch.

CORE:  Super Fly II™ Core. Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight. Further optimized for float in the free ride focused boards, and strength in our park-focused boards.

Powerful when you need them, playful when you don’t, Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining smooth, flowing, and forgiving.





Squeezebox. This patent-pending technology improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate.

The Channel™. The Channel is snowboarding’s ultimate connection, offering the fastest, easiest way to mount your bindings with the most stance options possible. It’s also compatible with all major binding companies, so why settle for anything less? NEW for 2014, all boards featuring The Channel are backed by a three-year warranty.

Scoop. This exaggerated tip and tail scooping turns up the edges for a looser, more forgiving feel that adds catch-free fun when riding everything from a knee-high box to neck-deep pow.

Pro-Tip™. A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

Infinite Ride™. This Burton-exclusive technology allows them to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you.

We recommend these bindings and boots to go along with the Men’s Process Flying V. We’re also running a package deal in-store right now which includes the bindings below and the Men’s Process board. Please contact the store nearest you for availability.

Fall Sweaters & Boots

Here’s a breakdown of the essential transitional pieces as you migrate your wardrobe from fall to winter. I’ll outline the best footwear and outerwear to ensure you stay stylish and warm throughout the seasons.

If you’re searching for style and practicality, these boots are the perfect combination of both.

Screen Shot 2014-11-10 at 1.45.04 PM

The North Face Nuptse Purna Boot is sure to keep you looking great, even in freezing temperatures.  In classic black, this boot will go well with all of your winter wardrobe.  The Sorel Tofino Winter Boot offers another great color option, and a quilted look adds interest to the boots.  These boots, with waxed canvas and leather shell will keep you warm and dry all winter long.  If you are looking for a dark brown boot, then look no further than the Northside Kathmandu Boot, featuring a D-ring lacing system to ensure a snug fit that keeps the snow out.

If you prefer a simple and classic tan boot, here are some fabulous options.

Screen Shot 2014-11-10 at 1.44.39 PM

The UGG Elsa Boot provides a twist on a classic, featuring the cream colored top and laces.  This waterproof boot delivers urban street style and offers all the luxury and comfort you would expect from Ugg.   Relaxed buckles are taken to a new level on the Not Rated Cow Love Boot, offering style and comfort for all day wear.   The chic Cobb Hill Peyton Boot boasts equestrian flair, an adjustable double buckle complimented by a full zipper closure.  This boot also features a reliable no pinch Lycra calf panel, for the perfect fit every time.

Don’t forget your Button Down Boot Socks which pair beautifully with so many different boot options.

Looking to add a bit of sass to your cold weather wardrobe?  These sweaters are perfect for you!

Screen Shot 2014-11-10 at 1.44.06 PM

Nothing is better than an owl who winks at you in the mirror, and this Woolrich Owl Motif Mohair Crew Sweater is perfect for showing off your playful side.  Another great pullover options is Soybu Samantha Sweater.  Made for your life, this lightweight, wide neck sweater features a hi-lo hem, and will keep you warm through the season.  This Roxy White Caps Stripe Sweater, featuring an oversided hood, is the perfect combination of black and white.  Not your ordinary sweater, this option from Roxy is shows off features such as a deep V neckline, and front pouch pocket.

Screen Shot 2014-11-10 at 1.43.35 PM

If you prefer an open front cardigan style sweater, we have just the thing for you!  The Billabong Loosen Up Cardigan brings a splash of color to your cold weather outfit, featuring an asymmetrical hem that is finished off with perfect tassel detailing.  Prefer a more simple style?  The Roxy Same Old Feeling Sweater is a lightweight cardigan inspired option, with a loose knit, and a short sleeve.  This option comes in two neutral hues, both of which will compliment your existing winter wardrobe.  The Billabong Between the Lines Cardigan is available in four colors.  This sweater features a cascading open front, which is accented with side pockets and mesh detailing at the neckline.





Fall Color Palette


Fall is a time to celebrate warm hues, and cozy attire.  Oxblood, and variations on the color, is the quintessential color of the season.  Bundling up in crimson, raspberry, or oxblood will keep your winter wardrobe effortless.  Have fun with the current cold weather trends, and experiment with this darker color palette.


The blouse on the left, by Sanctuary, provides a modern twist on a retro style.  A brilliant pattern, and the use of velvet at the neckline, makes for a fantastically unique top.  Contrast the lightweight top with a think knit scarf, which will pull your look together.

Prefer more layering?  The Hurley plaid on the right is perfect under a Billabong cardigan.  The slouchy neckline on the sweater offers a great alternative to an basic cardigan.  Stripes at the hem of the sweater will also take this look up a notch.


Dresses are a fantastic piece to layer with in the fall.  A nearly weightless floral print dress, as seen here on the left, is a fabulous option for dressing up during cold months.  Pair this Jack dress with some tights, and terrific boots for a date or party outfit.  A bead and chain necklace will complete your delicate look, without overdoing it.

Thicker dresses are also a beautiful option for a fall occasion.  The cowl dress on the right, by Mountain Hardwear, is a superb garment for more warmth in the cold.  Again, paired with tights and chic boots, this is perfect for outdoor activities in the crisp autumn air.  A simple belt at the natural waistline and necklace will finish off your ensemble.


Boots are another great way to wear oxblood this season.  A calf-high boot from Yellowbox is wonderful for many casual outings, and the straps and buckles add interest to an otherwise simple design.  If you want to add a bit more sass to your outfit, choose a heeled boot.  This pair by Chinese Laundry will help command attention for your chic ensemble.  Flat booties are great for cuffed jeans or trousers.  Franco Sarto has refined the traditional look of a bootie, and created something elegant.

Show us how you wear darker colors this season, on Instagram using the tag #ScheelsStyle.



Cool Weather, Hot Looks

French Connection is a luxurious brand, which provides both style and comfort for the fall.  These tops will make you feel absolutely fabulous, and look fantastic with either leggings or skinny jeans.

Anastasia Crepe

The Anastasia Crepe Shirt is a must-have for all seasons.  This top features line drawings of well-known landmarks to satisfy your inner globetrotter.

Zipper Neckline

If you are looking for a twist on a basic sweater, look no further than this adorable sweater with zippers on the neckline.  Pair with a simple beaded necklace to stay looking chic.

Knit Jumper1

This Knit Jumper Dress is perfect for someone who likes to cover a bit more, while staying stylish. A small beaded necklace is the ideal accent for this dress. Throw some tights on underneath, a sassy pair of black boots, and you’re ready to go!

IMG_3715 and Dress

Another delightful option for fall is a dress.  This style by tribal is perfect for the office or an evening out.  Pair with this metallic jacket for a flawlessly tailored look.


A basic two-tone long sleeve is a necessity for winter.  Add this Anouka top to your wardrobe, and you’ll feel effortlessly put together.


For footwear, my current obsession is wedge booties, which is a great shoe to wear with tights. There is no better way to get height, style, and practicality than with a pair of wedge booties. BCBGeneration has this sleek, mock-suede bootie, which is just the right fit for winter.


For a more rugged option these booties by Bedstu are sure to please!


If you prefer a flat boot, Bedstu has another stylish option.  Pair with an ombré scarf and fingerless gloves to complete your look.


For the man in your life, achieve this smart look with a Costal plaid shirt and a cozy Patagonia sweater.  Finish off the look with a suede dress shoe and Buffalo denim.

Preparing Your Feet for the Field

Scheels Boots Hunting

Dennis Stabe and Dan Anderson are Scheels experts who share a passion for hunting.

Not only do they love hunting, they also love outfitting Scheels customers with just the right gear and apparel to help make their big game hunting trips successful.

Of all the questions Stabe (St. Cloud, MN) and Anderson (Cedar Falls, IA) get asked the most, many of them pertain to one of the most important assets of any hunter…  the feet.

“No matter what type of game you are chasing, if your feet aren’t happy, you’re not happy, ” says Stabe. “Your feet being warm and comfortable often is the difference between being able to stay afield and be successful, or being miserable and going home early and empty-handed.”

Anderson adds, “Customers many times want to skimp on the quality of hunting footwear they purchase for a hunt to save a few dollars. It is important to teach them the differences in the higher-end footwear, and how it will benefit them. Our customers spend a lot of money on their hunts. Nothing can ruin a hunt more than having sore, wet, and blistered feet. Do not spoil your hunt that you many times have thousands of dollars invested in to save $100 on a pair of boots.”

And once you’ve made a decision on those boots, don’t forget, there’s one more critical decision that makes or breaks your comfort during the hunt.

“A hunting boot can’t perform at its best without a quality sock,” says Stabe. “A wool blend is a favorite choice because it delivers incredible warmth while wicking moisture away from your foot leaving you warm, dry and comfortable.”
