Buffalo check is one of our all-time favorite prints for winter. Originally worn by woodworkers in the Northeast, this two-toned, wide-check pattern is now a mainstay in cabin chic style. It was practically made for cozy flannels, vests, and blanket scarves! Discover some of our favorite women's buffalo plaid clothing and accessories, as well as styling tips and outfit ideas.
Layered Buffalo Check
One of our favorite ways to style buffalo check is by layering it over or under solid-colored staple pieces. With a classic button down buffalo plaid shirt, women’s styling options are virtually limitless. For instance, layer a cream or gray sweater over the shirt so that just the collar, hem, and cuffs are peeking through. Alternatively, open the buttons and layer the shirt over a thin sweater or top. Buffalo check also makes for wonderful outerwear, like this ultra cozy buffalo plaid vest. Style it over a plain white, gray, or black long-sleeve tee or sweater.
Wintery Buffalo Plaid Accessories
Even on the coldest winter days, these buffalo plaid hats, scarves, and other accessories will keep you toasty and warm. A cozy buffalo plaid beanie is the ideal finishing touch to any winter outfit (and a great way to cover up a bad hair day). Dreading the winter chill outside? This buffalo plaid scarf is lined with sherpa fleece on one side, making it extra cozy and warm. Meanwhile, an oversized buffalo check blanket scarf can be styled with a sweater dress and booties, or dressed down with a long-sleeve tee and leggings.
Black and White Buffalo Check
The classic buffalo check pattern features interwoven red and black squares. But this wintery print isn’t limited to just those two colors! Black and white buffalo check is an elegant, slightly more understated twist on the traditional color scheme. This super soft buffalo check fleece is the perfect comfort piece to pair with your favorite jeans or leggings for autumn or winter. And this cute black and white buffalo plaid poncho would look adorable layered over a solid black dress, and styled with over-the-knee boots.
Cozy and Comfy
One of the best things about buffalo plaid clothing is that it was practically made to be paired with ultra soft textures and oversized, comfortable fits. We love leaning into the cozy side of winter by wearing our warmest, comfiest buffalo check pajamas, sweaters, and other clothes.
