On Trend: Buffalo Plaid

on trend buffalo plaid

I love a whole bunch of patterns (what can I say…I’m just not a solid kind of girl), but my favorite print this winter has definitely been buffalo plaid/check.

I love the mix of the traditional red/black color combination, but I also love the other color combinations as well. This article from Tartan Authority has a great and detailed history of the pattern (you know…if you’re interested), but my number one takeaway was that this pattern has been around for over 150 years (and hopefully is no longer made with spirit blood…read the article if you’re confused)!

Let’s just say I’ve got a lot of catching up to do in terms of my buffalo plaid wearing, so grab a favorite items below and call me Paul Bunyan! ;)

  • Buffalo plaid is such a traditional check and I love seeing it come back year after year. This is a trend I can embrace.

    When I first saw all the plaid hitting the stores a few months ago, it was the buffalo plaid that I really caught my eye but I went with a shirt in the black and white version. I like the shirt so much that it has been featured twice on my blog; first in Nine Days, One Suitcase and then for Day 21 of my 31 Day Footwear Challenge.
