Buffalo Mix-Up

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Buffalo Plaid is hot this Fall.  What fun is a single item however, if you only have one way to wear it?  Buffalo Plaid may seem unfriendly at first glimpse as far as color & pattern mixing is concerned.  However, have no fear, you can have fun with this bold pattern.

I played dress up this past weekend in order to bring you 3 different looks to provide you with inspiration on ways to mix it up.



In all of the following looks I'm wearing this Buffalo Plaid shirt:

1.  Lace & White Jeans:  Adding a delicate lace to this seemingly "masculine" print is a way to soften the look (of course bling helps too).






 2.  Striped Dress:  Don't put away those summer dresses yet!  Adding a button-up like this & knotting it in the front makes a dress wearable year round.







 3.  Military Vest:  Adding another neutral color & layers adds visual dimension, & adding the faux leather leggings & lace-up heels adds edginess to this military look! (Can I just say here that the wind was completely annoying me in these pictures!)



Buffalo Plaid // Military Vest - Old Navy (option) // Faux Leather Legging // Cage Heels // Necklace - Express (option, option)


I love how each outfit has some juxtaposition to it (i.e. dressy with casual, feminine with masculine, pattern, color and/or texture mixing).  


I hope that these looks help inspire you to try your Buffalo Plaid in a new way.  Truth be told, I actually had a 4th look to share involving polka-dots, but I wasn't happy with the pictures so I'll save that look for another day :-)

Tell me your favorite way to wear Buffalo Plaid!

  1. Great post Kellie! I am loving your three outfit options here, and I'm especially loving your lace tank with with skinnies! I have been trying to decide how I want to wear my black lace tank for fall and I think you just decided for me. Of course, I don't have a buffalo plaid shirt so I'll have to figure out another jacket option, but I am definitely wearing the lace top with white jeans. Love that pairing!

  3. Yes! I love buffalo plaid! I have worn it with my black and white striped dress too, and I love that combo. Your leather leggings are perfect with it too.
