Rock a Flannel with Distressed Denim

Give modern 90’s grunge vibes when you pair a flannel with distressed denim. Wear your flannel buttoned-up or open over a graphic tee, then layer on a classic moto jacket. For an edgy encore, finish the look with lace-up boots and a studded crossbody bag.

Couple a Flannel with a Feminine Skirt and Heels

Tuck the bottom of a colorful flannel button-up into a feminine a-line tulle skirt for a romantic rendezvous. If you’re not a fan of tucking in your top, unbutton the last 3-5 buttons of your flannel and double knot at the waist. Give your flannel some frost and slip a sparkly statement necklace under your collar. Complete the look with pointed-toe pumps, and add a fitted blazer if you need another layer.

Stylist Tip: Blessed in the chest? Don’t stress! Opt for an oversized flannel with stretch to accommodate your curves.

Keep it Simple With Jeans 

Our favorite way to wear flannel? With a simple pair of jeans and ankle booties of course! If you’re looking for a casual Friday work outfit, simply layer a black blazer over your flannel, or if it’s the weekend (finally!) trade your jeans and booties for leggings and sneakers.

Stylist Tip: While we might frequently associate flannel with a heavyweight fabric, they are actually made in a variety of weights. Since flannel is brushed cotton that gives the appearance of wool, it’s naturally breathable.
