The temperature is starting to drop and the leaves are set to change in the next week or two. I’m so excited!
With the changing leaves, we go from wearing light chiffon and gauzy materials to light flannels and layers. Here are 5 different ways to wear flannel, from professional to a casual night out!
It’s actually surprisingly easy to dress up a flannel shirt. Just pair it with a pencil skirt or trousers, add work appropriate shoes (closed toe and no heels for me) and add accessories. This flannel shirt is neutral, allowing for more pops of color, but if you’re wearing traditional flannel prints (reds, and blues), just pull compliments to color block (ie: bright pinks with blue flannels, reds with cream and gold).
The 70’s are back in full swing with flared jeans being the trend for this season. Flannel shirts naturally have a vintage vibe so pairing them with flares with chunky heels and jewelry is a no brainer. Pile on the gold!
Warm and Cozy:
Nothing is worse than being cold (and showing it) when you’re out on the town. It’s cool enough to not wear a tank top, but not cold enough to break out a moto jacket. I’m in a perpetual state of cold, so this is a style I reach for often. I added a lacy camisole to add a feminine touch and I picked jewelry with stones to add a cool texture to offset the warmth of the flannel.
This is simple and self explanatory. It combines skinny jeans, a scarf, and riding boots to give off equestrian vibes. I kept the jewelry simple and modern to keep the focus on the cute foxes printed on this scarf.
The Unexpected Twist:
A dress with a flannel shirt? Don’t knock it till you try it. If you’re wary use a neutral dress so it doesn’t compete with the pattern on the flannel. You can wear it loose, with a knot at your midriff. If it gets too warm, you can wear it around your waist for a throwback to the 90’s.
