Buffalo Plaid Hearts

This look was partially inspired by Burberry Spring 2014 Men's collection featured in this post! Black, straight-cut pants and simple shoes ground the ensemble, then bright and bold layers up top make it into an outfit! You need a strong base when mixing prints, especially such disjointed ones as hearts and plaid. Hearts being more girly and silly, while buffalo plaid is traditionally a man's workshirt print. It's key that both are rendered in similar colors--red & black. It also helps that red and blue are a dynamic color-combo. So, this seemingly simple look really had a lot going on! And yes, I DID wear this on Valentine's day, and yes a heart pattern may be a bit "on point" if you will, but the jacket, menswear-inspired loafers, and simple black trousers kept the look from being too cutesy.
