WEEKEND FORECAST: The Couple That Dresses Together Stays Together!

One of the emerging trends for Spring 2011 is prints and patterns. Style.com has even noted in their trend report that designers like Roberto Cavalli have included prints in their line. Why wait until spring to sport your patterned shirt, though? This fashionable couple jumped the gun and broke out their plaid shirts.

When I think of flannel shirts my mind automatically thinks of Kurt Cobain and the Seattle grunge scene. However, this Fashionista made her flannel shirt classic with a navy blazer. Although the blazer gives this outfit a polished look, her chunky chain necklace adds the perfect amount of edge. I also loved how she cuffed her jeans. This brings attention to her awesome platform nude heels. This Fashionista was looking very stylish, but so was her boyfriend. I like how he rolled his sleeves. This gave the ensemble a laidback look. Even though this couple matches they can pull it off because the plaid shirts are different colors.

Want to be a daring Fashionista? Try mixing two different patterns like this flannel shirt with a striped shirt under it. Or try a striped shirt with a floral skirt. As for the Fashionistos, pair your flannel shirt with a leather jacket and Ray Ban wayfarers for an effortless bad boy look.

Hint: Forever21 has a variety of flannel shirts for both men and women. My personal favorite is this one for women. For a perfect multi-chained necklace try Cusp. To complete the look try these nude heels by Jessica Simpson.
