Style Advice of the Week

Two words that join together to form a harmonious combination: fall flannels. The season welcomes its go-to garment as the leaves begin to scatter walkways and the breeze kisses students’ faces. With various color schemes, styles and fabrics, this versatile piece can help you create looks all year ‘round. Use it as a base for your outfit, or treat it like a jacket; either way, the flannel’s styling options never end.

This Fashionista composes a casual fall look with a blue flannel button-down. Paired with dark denim and a robin egg blue clutch, she does her own take on the monochromatic look. To add a vintage flair to her ensemble she wears a pair of worn-in ankle boots. Her hairstyle completes the look while making a bold statement. Topknots take confidence to pull off, but when done right, they can instantly polish any look.

To emulate the look, find your favorite flannel and a comfy pair of jeans— it’s that easy. Flannels not only give off a laid back vibe, they also provide you with comfort throughout the day. Whether you throw it over a shirt and wear it as a light jacket or button it to the top, you can’t go wrong with a flannel.

On warm fall days tie it around your waist for a ‘90s throwback. When the temperature drops into winter, sport a heavier material to battle the chill. Wear it with a vest or wear it solo — the style options are endless. The next time you’re puzzled about what to wear, just think fall flannel.
