I really love buffalo check this time of year. I actually love it for all of fall and winter, but it feels really festive this time of year. And don’t we all just want to feel festive this time of year? I know I do!
I know buffalo check can feel a little casual, like with the flannel shirts (which are awesome, by the way), but when paired with dressier pieces, the print feels a lot less casual. Even if you are wearing a buffalo check shirt, pair it with a pencil or a-line skirt and a cardigan, and it is totally office appropriate. Throw on a fancy statement necklace and some pumps and you are ready for a date night.
Buffalo check (along with plaid in general) is one of my favorite prints this time of year. The great thing is that there are so many many buffalo check options out there! You can do a cute scarf, a cardigan, a shirt, socks, pjs. You name it. I typically think of the red and black combo, but there are other color options out there if that isn’t your thing.
So whether it is a buffalo check skirt, shirt or scarf, I strongly suggest you break them out right now.
Side note – you know what I love about J. Crew Factory? Things I really love from previous years come back and I can get them. I wanted this sweater so bad last year, but I didn’t get it. Then a J. Crew factory version came out this year, and I got it as fast as possible.
I’ll be dressing this skirt up and styling it a second way in this week’s newsletter because it is a really versatile print. It goes out tomorrow, and you can get it by signing up for emails at the bottom of the post.
