Flannels are great to wear year-round. They work great in the fall with a vest and riding boots, but they also work great in the springtime. During spring, the weather starts off cold in the morning, but by mid-afternoon, it’s 70 degrees and sunny. Sometimes jackets are out of the question because they are too bulky to carry around class to class.

The perfect light springtime necessity is a flannel shirt. This Fashionista has on the perfect white T-shirt with dark wash jeans and a flannel tied around the waist. Two easy staple items every Fashionista/o should have in their closets is a white T-shirt and a go-to pair of jeans.

The classic look of a white shirt and jeans is a casual but put together outfit for classes. The flannel tied around the waist is perfect for springtime. Starting the day with the flannel on and then tying it around your waist in the afternoon can give your look a relaxed ’90s style.

With different accessories and shoes, it is easy to dress the flannel up or down and in any style. This Fashionista has more of a rocker-bohemian look with the layered necklaces, bralette and distressed boots. This Fashionista has a clever way of taking her house key and making it a simple, everyday piece of jewelry.

You can never go wrong with a flannel in place of a light jacket during the transition seasons! It’s cute without being too bulky.
