As we have all experienced, Boston weather can be pretty bipolar: one day it’s warm and sunny, the next it’s freezing and cloudy. As we can’t control the weather, we can control how to keep warm in this ever-changing weather game. I found this Fashionista layered up in style while enjoying one of the sunnier days in Boston. What I love most about this Fashionista's layering skills is the idea of layering thinner items instead of throwing together your biggest sweater and thickest coat the moment it turns to cold. This Fashionista has emulated two current trends this season: the flannel and army green. She has decided to layer her flannel over her black long-sleeved shirt, accompanying the idea of thin-item layering. Her army green coat is a great item to have for fall. It is a perfect fall coat – not too heavy, but large enough to have a layer on under to create the ultimate warm effect.
I love what this Fashionista has done by using her flannel as a layering piece. The flannel is a trend that has taken the world by storm, and as flannels come in all different colors and sizes, it is a great layering item. Some flannels are warmer than others, but regardless of your flannel preference, using it has a layering piece is a flawless fall look. I know some of us Fashionistas (myself included) tend to stray away from the open flannel look at the risk of looking like a '90s grunge icon. But this Fashionista has shown us the open flannel is nothing to fear and is a great look for fall. While remaining casual in her red and black flannel with a black long-sleeved shirt underneath, this Fashionista is ready for any weather Boston may throw at her. Whether you find your flannels at a thrift store or are drawn to the new sheer ones at American Apparel, try using your flannel as a layering item and stay warm, comfortable and fashionable.
