Shout Out To Nadia For Absolutely Slaying The Plaid Flannel Shirt Game
Talk about taking the challenge and owning it!
Tuck Into High-Rise Jeans
Tuck that flannel into some high-rise jeans to get a new silhouette. It’ll make your legs look a bit longer. Really work that fresh and sexy lumberjack style.
Knot A Flannel At The Waist For A Touch Of Daisy Duke
Knotting a flannel is a classic and easy way to switch it up a bit. Try pairing it with an interesting bottom like Scotti did with her flares.
Daisy Duke, But A Little Fancy
Knot it again.. but fancy it up. Try layering with a jumpsuit OR a knitted skirt and leather jacket
Oh, Ya Girl! — She’s So Fancy
Dress up your flannel with a fancy skirt (we’re LOVING the faux leather Kat is rocking).
Knot The Ends For A Little Jacket Action
Knot the ends to make a short jacket that shows that snatched waist. Make it edgy by tucking a graphic tee into your fave jeans, and rock the chunky military boots.
Full Plaid Jacket
Layer your flannel like a jacket. Pair with jeans and a cozy sweater, or even try out a silk cami.
Get All Breakfast Club
Go full on John Bender with your look! A great way to wear an oversized flannel while still keeping it flattering? Try out a shorter jacket.
Everyone Loves Some Layering
LAYERS. They’re the easiest way to add a little bit of interest. Try out a fuzzy jacket/vest, a motto, or blazer! Ps: camel looks great with flannel prints.
White Jeans? Yes, Please.
We’re always looking for ways to style up white jeans. Adding a flannel is such an easy way to make your outfit POP against the white. If all else fails, a venti from Starbucks is a great accessory.
Layer It Under A Crewneck
More layers. Looks especially cute with the collar and cuffs peeking out. Collegiate vibes all the way.
Frills Aren’t Just For Special Occasions
Now these are some super interesting layers. Add a fun frilly-sleeve sweater or a frilly slip.
Try Something A Little Different
A flannel… but different. Wrap shirts and babydoll tops are so cute… mix it with a flannel print? Amazing.
When in doubt… stick with the classics. Button up your flannel, wear some jeans and pop on your favorite booties or sneaks. BAM.
Shout out to Wendy for hitting that peak 80s mom look while showing a good flannel shirt is nursing friendly too!
And that’s a wrap for Week 1! We’re starting up Week 2 (slip dresses) and will be taking submissions all next week until Thursday 1/30 on Facebook and Instagram! Hope you got your slip dress ready.
