Red and Black Buffalo Checks

Or as we call this pattern in Canada–Lumberjack squares or Lumberjack plaid. 

I love these big bold checks and they get their name from the Canadian lumberjacks who wear jackets and shirts with this red and black plaid. 

While shopping on Black Friday, I bought two plaid tops at Eclipse. This one is dolman style and is made in Canada, a sporty look and I paired it with black velvet leggings.

Red accessories: beret (thrifted), vegan purse (bought on Whidbey Island) and new red booties from Walking on a Cloud.

Saw these cute black and red hens that match my outfit.

What’s your favourite plaid?

    Red and black do go perfectly well together. I love how you matched hat, bag and boots also. I love red, but I don’t have any squared stuff. Nice of the right coloured hens to join. 🙂

      Thanks so much Maggie, accessories add pazazz to an outfit. Red and black are a great pair and so is black and white which is your trademark! 🙂 The other top I bought at Eclipse is black and white plaid.
