Buffalo check yourself before you wreck yourself…

In case you’re one of those people who like to hold on to things, stop it! You should have learned from the movie Frozen by now, “let it go!” Fall is here! (It officially started on Sept. 23rd 2014).

One of the must have patterns for the season is Buffalo check. Buffalo check is plaid with large intersecting blocks of two different colors of yarn. The most traditional and on-trend color combo is red and black.

Stop. Take a look a round. You’ve seen it. It’s on shirts, vests, backpacks, jackets, coats, and even boots! It’s all around you, but it makes such a great fall statement. Yeah you may think to yourself, “do I look like a lumberjack in this?!” but if you do, it’s perfect!

Embrace it, and cross this one off your list.



I went straight up lumberjack for this look, using my red and black buffalo check flannel shirt, my ripped slim-fit boyfriend jeans with suspenders, and added my camo vest with corduroy piecing to show commitment ;). I added a jeweled statement necklace because I think a statement necklace can feminize and dress up any ensemble. This outfit can be worn with camel color booties, or if you are showing true commitment, some Hunter rain boots, or even better, some “Tims” aka Timberland boots. I’m thinking the Manolo Blahnik, Timberland inspired boot, J-Lo style circa 2002, Jenny from the Block video. (Btw, you’re welcome.)
