Ways You Can Wear a Flannel Shirt


The flannel shirt used to be something that was only associated with being a lumberjack. However in the more recent years it is something that has made its way into the mainstream styles and has become a staple in both men’s and women’s clothing. Simply put, if you haven’t gone out and bought one of these shirts yet you are truly missing out. If you go out and buy one you may be wondering just how you can make it into a working piece in your wardrobe. Here I will give you a few different ways in which you can looks great while wearing a flannel shirt.

If you live in certain areas of the world, during different parts of the year you will have only one concern and that is staying warm. So here we will start with something that is the warmest option for you and usually the reason for wearing flannel at all in the first place. One of the easiest ways to wear a flannel shirt is by wearing it under a hoodie. These days you will find that many of the major companies even sell jackets with flannel patterns to mimic this style. Pair this shirt/jacket combo with a t-shirt, jeans, and slip on sneakers and you will be a perfect match for the seasons that call for a few extra layers.

The first style can be a very plain style so let’s move onto something a little more preppy and classy. In order to appear a little classier you can easily pair a flannel shirt with a skirt. You’ll want to keep the skirt a clean and sophisticated color such as black in order to match the loud design of a flannel shirt. If you go for too bold of a color you will simply clash with the flannel and shine like the sun. You can never go wrong with a black miniskirt and flannel shirt. If you are looking for shoes that you can wear with these outfits you will want to stick with the dressier options. However if you are the type of person that is worried about tripping on loose bricks and other hazards you can always pull it off with a cute pair of flats.

Another option for you to consider is wearing a flannel with something like boots and leggings. This is actually something you will see quite frequently around college campuses when it starts to become colder outside. If you buy a flannel shirt that is slightly longer it will also function as a long shirt all the way to a dress if you play it right. If this particular style doesn’t work for you, you can put a belt around your waist in order to show off your curves. Accessories are always a big contribution no matter how small it really is. A skinny belt would be your best option and you can also add little detail such as a bow or a pop of color to draw more attention to the outfit.

No matter where you have gotten your flannel you should not be afraid to try something new with it. Flannel is a style that is quickly gaining popularity so it is smart to start incorporating it into your wardrobe.
