Do you feel yourself catching a chill? Don’t forget to grab the nearest flannel shirt from your closet! Remember as the hours of daylight decrease so do the temperatures. Whether you like it or not fall weather is quickly approaching! Be practical and take the time to pack a light flannel to cover up or add a warmer layer for the later hours.

I found this Fashionista on the streets of Manhattan waiting to meet up with some friends on a chilly summer afternoon. She is wearing a white tank top with a blue and white plaid button-up. This style is very sought out since the introduction of flannel-inspired shirts. Originally, flannel was originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn, but today it is now often made from either cotton, wool or other textiles. Plaid print always makes a clear fashion statement because it is so recognizable and popular.

This Fashionista is also wearing brown T-strap sandals and black cutt-off shorts. Her look is simple and classic for a first day back in class. The combination of her tank top, plaid shirt, bottoms, footwear and school bag make a studious statement for all to see. College students can always rock flannel or plaid all year round!

One Simple Change: Just got out of class and realized the weather forecast is predicting colder weather and thunder clouds? Next time, throw on a pair of sneakers for a day out for a practical and casual look and feel. You’ll be ready for the cold weather in no time!
