This week's look features Buffalo Check!
Buffalo Check is simple, bold and more exciting than a solid or a plain pattern. I like the versatility of the print how easy it is to wear.
The trend started in Scotland where they were known for their buffalo pelts, hence the name. The strong red and black squares are designed to reflect the great outdoors. The trend has continued to grow, even making appearances on everything from the classic plaid shirt, to scarves and coats.
As I was styling this look I couldn't help but think: "I hope I don't look like a lumberjack!"
You can avoid looking like Paul Bunyon by choosing pieces that fit closer to the body which accentuates the typical feminine 'hourglass' physique. Keep in mind that every woman has a different shape so you should pick pieces that are flattering to your unique body. Pairing this pattern with delicate accessories helps soften the strong print. While red and black are the most common shades that are sold, you may find some retailers who sell other patterns that feature colours such as blue, pink, and even purple.
