This holiday season I seem to be drawn to red and green! I have looked back at my Instagram feed over the last few weeks, and it is all I have worn! I think this is the first holiday season I have worn these colors as much as I have! In keeping with my red theme I decided to see if I could style this buffalo plaid dress from Shein for work. Nothing says Christmas more as buffalo plaid!

I absolutely fell in love with this dress when I received it from Shein. The fabric is thicker which is perfect for our cold winter. The quality of this dress is really well done, and the fit is perfect. For reference I got a medium in this dress.
To mix up the look of this dress I decided to try some pattern mixing. I could have gone with my normal mix of leopard and buffalo plaid, but I decided to try mixing two different plaids. I liked how the larger window pane pattern mixed with the smaller buffalo plaid. What made this work was the difference size of patterns and colors. The black tied the whole look together, but the white helped make it stand out. I cut this scarf in half to make sure that it did not feel so overwhelming. You can read here how I cut my blanket scarves.
To finish off this look, I wanted to wear these fun boots by Same Edelman that I got last year. I love the fun pattern on the back along with the studded design. It helps create an edge to any look, plus they always get me so many compliments! I have also received a few snide remarks if they are used as a weapon.
I definitely want to try this dress again with leopard pieces since it is such an easy way to pattern mix. How would you wear this dress?
