We’ve all heard the saying, “The best things come in twos.” So when I spotted this adorable couple dressed perfectly for the cooler spring weather, I had to stop them. Both of their ensembles build off of each other, and each piece works to create a perfectly coherent, couple-approved look.

Flannel shirts are a staple piece in anyone’s wardrobe because they are comfortable and easy to wear. But this doesn’t mean you have to stick with the simple jeans and flannel combination. Instead, think outside of the box, and experiment by mixing different styles with the shirt, just like this Fashionista does.

She is rocking a flannel button-down but not in the usual way, which is why she stood out among the crowd of students. She dresses up this otherwise casual piece by pairing it with some dressy black shorts that are slightly visible underneath the shirt.

And because it can still be fairly chilly in the morning, she decided to wear a pair of black tights under her shorts, adding another dressy element to her look. The contrasting pieces—the relaxed flannel and the chic shorts and tights combination—create an eye-catching ensemble.

The outfit isn’t complete without her cherry red Dr. Martens, which, again, contrast with the button-down and shorts. This Fashionista creates a look that is composed of multiple pieces, and each add a different vibe to the overall ensemble.

The Fashionisto also nailed his casual springtime outfit. He kept the base piece in his look simple, starting with a pair of skinny green jeans and a crisp white T-shirt. He then builds onto his look by adding a dark-washed denim jacket and a pair of tan leather shoes—the stand out pieces in the ensemble. And finally, a light brown belt and a watch are the finishing touches.

Next time you want to dress up your flannel, use this Fashionista as inspiration. And if any Fashionistos are unsure about how to wear their denim jacket, use this Fashionisto’s look as your guide to rocking denim the right way.
