I’ve always found that two plaids are better than one. So get your buffalo plaid in a bright bold overcoat, and pair it with at least one additional contrasting plaid for good measure. Easy-peasy, right?! But seriously folks, a lot of people are afraid to mix patterns, but the key is not to overthink it. This combo works because because the colors are in the same palette (red, black and white). And the scale of the two patterns are different but not too much (a tiny plaid print dress probably wouldn’t work as well with this coat, for example).
