STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keep Calm and Flannel On

Style Advice of the Week

One of my favorite go-to items in my wardrobe is a flannel. They’re so cozy and comfy; it keeps me warm all day long but conveys a much more stylish look than a sweatshirt. This Fashionista captures this relaxed yet put together look effortlessly in her flannel button-up as she unpacks and catches up with friends in the few days leading up to classes.

She is wearing a bold plaid flannel shirt that she found while thrifting. Second-hand stores can be an excellent place to find great flannel pieces, such as a men’s flannel, to belt and wear with leggings. A flannel can be so versatile and worn in many ways and thrift shops are perfect for finding different sizes, styles and lengths of flannel shirts. For example, this American Apparel flannel shirt is cropped to be worn with a high-waisted skirt or pants.

However, this week’s Fashionista kept it classic by pairing her flannel with timeless Levi Brand Jeans. She created an edge to her soft look with black combat boots and a winter white pashmina. I love how she paired her boots and scarf with her shirt to bring out the white and black in the plaid pattern. She also wears three black, white and gold bangles, reminiscent of the gorgeous Tory Burch bangles that are so popular right now. She completes her look with an intricate side braid and a bright peach lip. When planning your outfits for this week, incorporate at least one flannel piece and you’ll be cute and cozy!
