What screams fall louder than flannel does? Nothing! Flannel is the perfect addition to any fall wardrobe. It’s so versatile and comes in such a wide variety of colors that I don’t know how anyone could stay away from such a comfy trend.
What I love the most about this tartan trend is that you can find it just about anywhere. I’ve seen it in stores such as Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom, but this is a trend that doesn’t even have to hurt your wallet. You can find some of the best flannel shirts at thrift stores! I’ve been to a few of the ones we have here in Blacksburg and have walked out with some great new pieces. Just like they say, another man’s trash is another man’s treasure! You can even spruce up your thrift shop finds by adding studs or other embellishments to it. In the end, you’ll have a unique, trendy flannel that people haven’t seen before.
Once you’ve found (or have updated) your perfect flannel, it’s time to style it. A flannel can easily be dressed up or down. It’s all a matter of how you want to wear it. If you’re going for a casual look, you can wear your flannel with a pair of leggings and boots just as this CollegeFashionista has done. As you can see, she keeps her look pretty simple and accessorized with a black Pashmina scarf. Another look you can try is layering your flannel over a loose top and pairing it with skinny jeans or leggings and heels.
