STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Flannel Chic And Over-The-Knee

Just because fall is over doesn’t mean flannel season has to be. The winter is a tough season to keep your cute looks actually cute and fun. You want to put on that cute little black dress or skirt but looking outside your window it doesn’t look too promising.

When you think flannels you think of your dad’s favorite L.L.Bean he wears on his days off mowing the lawn and doing yard work, not the most fashionable site to see. But these cozy and colorful outwears have made their way into the fashion world and almost every girls closet. Flannels are a great addition to any summery/fall outfit to warm it up and dress it down. A flannel can be worn with almost anything from a band tee to a simple black dress. They are also a great way to add a little color to your look.

Now this outfit may look like it belongs in the fall but we all know every true Fashionista can’t let a little snow bring her down. Along with the flannel, the additions of the over-the-knee socks help warm her up while adding another trend to her outfit. The black dress on its own could easily be worn with a bubble necklace and heels for a night on the town, but the flannel and socks mellow it out for a casual day/night out with friends. The most important thing here is staying cute and comfy. Us girls shouldn’t have to sacrifice our fashion sense for a couple of months just because it’s a little chilly.
