What’s a few things that come to mind when I say fall style staples? Is flannel on that list? Well if it’s not, it should be! And if it is, let’s be besties.
Maybe it’s my Midwestern roots or that I tend to gravitate toward “classic” styles, but I love wearing flannel for fall and winter! Flannels can be worn under a sweater with just the collar and sleeves showing, worn open over a tee, or by itself. There are endless color options as well. And patterns? There’s plaid, gingham, checked… With all of these options, what’s not to love!?
I’ll most commonly wear my flannels with jeans. I like to tuck the middle front of my shirt in to my jeans (as seen in my photos) to elongate my legs. And once it starts to get REALLY cold, I’ll throw my flannel on under a sweater. Roll the sleeves of the sweater a bit to see the flannel at the ends and make sure your collar can be seen. If your sweater and flannel are a little long just put on some leggings and keep it comfy. Another option, that I don’t tend to do as often is throw on a flannel over a little graphic tee and keep it unbuttoned.This look adds layers but requires very little thinking. (Great for feeling put together!)
Some of my Flannel Picks Right Now:
- I have this exact one from a couple seasons ago
- Love these colors, and doesn’t button all the way down
- Obsessed with the colors in this one and the over-sized top button. Boxier fit.
- The little ruffle collar is so cute
Here I wore my Topshop flannel (old) with wide-leg jeans for a trendy touch. Dressed down with tennis shoes, or throw on some booties or heels for a dressier look. Wear a classic colored flannel with some brown riding boots and you’ll pull off the preppy look with ease! A flannel shirt is so versatile, there’s no way to go wrong.
