Canada Day Style Part Four: Buffalo Checks

Source: dailymail.co.uk
Buffalo checks are always a wardrobe staple in the fall anywhere in Canada and can be seen on anything from button-up shirts, pea coats and scarves. The red and black colours are perfect for the darker skies and rich leaf colours in the autumn but it does not mean that the buffalo check must be reserved to the cooler seasons. Buffalo checks can fit right in for the summertime season as they resemble the warm season print, gingham and wearing red is perfect for Canada Day!

The buffalo check sleeveless shirt worn by Doutzen Kroes in the inspiration photo above is the right way to wear buffalo checks in the summertime. The styling of the blouse is perfect for a fun summer backyard BBQ as it is unbuttoned and tied around her waist making the look carefree and relaxed. Wearing a bright blue bikini top (this one is cute too) underneath adds to the summer feel. Yellow shorts are a fun piece to pair with red and black and surprisingly look good with other prints as well such as camo print like in this post. I love this pair and this pair of yellow shorts as well. To top off the look, Doutzen wears one of my favourite summertime hats. I love straw fedoras because they are easy to wear and make any outfit look cool while protecting your face from the sun. This pair and this pair are stylish and chic.
