STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Femme Flannel

The flannel button down isn’t something new. In fact, flannel material dates back to the 16th Century. Anyhow, generally flannel tends to be associated with young men and lumberjacks, but lately around campus I’ve seen an increasingly larger number of women wearing this comfortable fashion-forward shirt. I must say, us ladies look great in them! Flannel shirts are items that should be a staple in every gal’s wardrobe, as they can easily be thrown on for an early morning class or dressed up a bit with a darker denim jean.

This Fashionista has a black and red, plaid flannel button down paired with frayed denim shorts. By cuffing the sleeves of the shirt, she’s unknowingly added texture and visual appeal to the shirt. Her leather and metal necklace is a great piece of jewelry for an outfit like this, just enough shine for this type of look. She’s also right on trend with her boots and shoulder-slung bag. It’s a simple outfit, but an outfit that works. I also really like the messy-but-not bun she has, an aspect that adds to the casual feel. 

Not to mention, these flannel shirts are great pieces for layering. I love to wear mine with tank tops or a graphic t-shirt. To recreate this Fashionista’s look, I recommend this flannel shirt from Forever 21 which has a feminine bow tie at the waist. Try pairing the top with these high-waist cuffed shorts by BDG. Her shoes remind me of classic Dr. Martens, so I suggest these particular ones to complete the look.
