A staple fabric for fall and winter is always flannel. It’s a fabric that just screams cozy vibes. I think many of us think flannel is more of a print, but flannel is the fabric, and it’s just often found in plaids and tartan prints. All flannel is just a medium-weight cotton weave fabric. It’s usually got a bit of a harsher-looking texture to it, but it’s usually quite soft. You’ll often see a flannel woven in a classic tartan or plaid print making it the epitome of fall and winter fabrics.
Flannel shirts and jackets are a staple for any wardrobe for chilly climates and instantly give you a street style-inspired outfit look. I love a decent oversized flannel shirt in plaid to be paired with straightforward jeans and a tee outfit. But there are such countless ways to style a flannel as it’s a fabric that comes in many silhouettes and pieces for any closet.
BOTTOMS THAT GO WELL WITH FLANNELS.
At the point when I think of pairing a flannel shirt or jacket with bottoms, I like to keep things a bit more streamlined on the bottom. Flannel can appear heavy and it’s all about balancing it out. I like to style it with straight-leg denim, skinny jeans, or faux leather leggings. For that in-between fall weather, you can also have leather shorts for a fashionable take on the combo.
FLANNEL STYLE FOR WINTER AND SNOW.
I love a flannel coat or jacket over a stout knit sweater for winter and snowy conditions. It’s cozy, and warm and is a great pairing for that kind of weather.
COMPLETE THE LOOK WITH A T-SHIRT.
Pairing a straightforward white t-shirt with a classic flannel is a basic and easy outfit. They just go together and is a surprisingly simple combination. You can try and do a graphic t-shirt to play on the colors within your flannel.
HOW TO COMBINE FABRICS AND FLANNEL.
While you’re wearing a heavier knitted flannel, it can be enjoyable to play with fabrics here. Try pairing it with a velvety slip dress to have a little something unexpected with it. Or then again leather. Or then again you can try and go striking and do flannel on flannel. Yeah, you heard me, this can work. Head into certain outfit ideas underneath to see them in action.
EXTRACT A COLOR FROM THE PRINT.
If you wear flannel in a tartan or plaid print and are trying to sort out some way to pair it with other colors, this is the trick. Take a look at the colors throughout the print and pull a couple out to coordinate. So while your flannel may be mostly hunter green let’s say, but there’s a bit of pink in the plaid, you can pair it with a lot of pinks to pull it out.
IDEAS FOR FLANNEL OUTFITS.
DRESSED DOWN IN A FLANNEL JACKET AND JOGGERS.
For a straightforward casual everyday look, great for running errands or being on mom duty, this look is perfection. Flannel jacket paired with a long sleeve, joggers, and sneakers. These are all wardrobe staples you probably already have. Just add another pleasant flannel layering piece.
FLANNEL JACKET WITH LEATHER, LONG AND OVERSIZED.
This look combines a lot of the tips from above like pulling a color out of the print and applying it from head to toe. I also love the addition of leather. The leather pants with flannel are so stunning and a tomfoolery play on casual yet elevated.
A FLANNEL SHIRT WITH AN OVERSIZED DENIM JACKET.
Wearing an oversized flannel shirt with black leggings is another easy look. Layer your trucker-style denim jacket and you’re all set for feeling put-together without putting in a ton of effort.
GO WITH LEATHER.
The flannel-inspired jacket is perfectly paired with leather joggers. It’s a tomfoolery mix of prints and texture for fall and winter. You really might dress it down with a sneaker instead of heels for something a bit more on the casual everyday side.
WITH LEATHER SHORTS AND A MULE SANDAL
I love a decent transition outfit from summer to fall and this combination is exactly what I’d do. A pair of leather shorts paired with a flannel plaid shirt. Add a cute sneaker or a heel to dress it up a bit.
FOR COZY WINTER LOOKS
A heavier flannel jacket paired with kick-crop denim and thick boots is perfect for a cozy winter look. Add a beanie to make this look feel considerably cozier!
WITH MOM JEANS AND BOOTIES
Tuck in a slightly oversized flannel into mom jeans and smooth leather booties. This is an elevated basic way to style your flannel for every day. I love the addition of a modern boot that makes the flannel feel a little cooler.
OVERSIZED WITH LUG SOLE BOOTS
Lug sole boots are an immense trend right now and they pair perfectly with the grit and tense factor of plaid flannel. Style with your favorite black faux leather leggings to complete the look.
STYLED WITH TROUSERS
Trousers are the “it” pant for 2023 and adding a flannel jacket and sneakers makes them very cool and casual. It’s the perfect way to dress these pants down.
MODEL OFF DUTY VIBES
Wear your oversized plaid flannel shirt with straight-leg jeans and your lace-up combat boots. It feels extremely cool and grit, but not too much that it seems like you’re playing a job.
WITH STATEMENT PANTS
By pulling out the little bit of peach in this flannel oversized jacket you create a strong look. These peach flared-leg jeans are an unexpected pop of color with a wintery flannel.
PLAID FLANNEL WITH CORDUROYS
If this isn’t the epitome of fall I don’t realize what is. Plaid flannel tucked into cozy corduroys in the most perfect autumn shade. I love this combination and the fit of the denim. By tucking your shirt in, you also polish off the outfit perfectly.
