It's Week 1 of the reader style challenge! This week's winter outfit features plaid flannel shirts — w/ high-rise or white jeans, all Breakfast Club, fancy & more.

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.

Oh, Ya Girl! — She’s So Fancy

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.

Mallory’s Look

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.

Mary’s Look

Layer It Under A Crewneck

More layers. Looks especially cute with the collar and cuffs peeking out. Collegiate vibes all the way.

Emily | Laura

Frills Aren’t Just For Special Occasions

Now these are some super interesting layers. Add a fun frilly-sleeve sweater or a frilly slip.

Joy | Amy

Try Something A Little Different

A flannel… but different. Wrap shirts and babydoll tops are so cute… mix it with a flannel print? Amazing.

Abby | Corinne

The Classic

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!
