Lately here in Bowie, the weather has been depressing and has taken away all the inspiration to get dressed each morning. During this kind of weather, all I want to do is sit in my sweatpants and binge watch Netflix all day. However, inspiration around campus has reminded me that style does not have to be compromised by comfort.
I spotted this Fashionista while walking across campus and her plaid flannel instantly caught my eye. A plaid flannel is a fall staple that is versatile and can be layered with a T-shirt. It can also be worn as a jacket or around the waist with a leather mini skirt and booties. Since this piece is versatile, you have the ability to style it in many ways. Whether you’re going for a casual look, a grunge vibe or something to feel cozy in; the possibilities are endless.
Many people choose to wear their flannel around their waist. However, this Fashionista expressed that comfort is number one in her style book, so she wore her flannel as her center piece. She paired her flannel with white high-top Converse and a baseball cap; elements that add an athletic feel. For a feminine touch her neck is laced with layered, gold necklaces and she carries a structured black bag large enough to hold books. The chic zipper details elevate the entire look.
If you don’t own a flannel, I highly recommend getting one! This one piece can help you achieve many different looks.
