Flannel Friday

Is it really even Autumn without at least one flannel shirt? Flannel shirts have taken a permanent place in both women and men’s Autumn collection of staples. They are warm, rustic, soft, and comfy – perfect for Autumn and Winter. Flannel shirts are a perfect and timeless transitional layer that you can wear in all kinds of ways.

Tie it around your waist for a nod to the 90’s which I love to do OR throw a bomber over it OR maybe even both.

We all know how difficult it is to dress for unpredictable New England weather, the flannel shirt could be your Autumn fashion lifesaver. To change things up a bit this rustic and rugged piece can be an alternative to the classic cardigan.

Flannel shirts are easy to wear. Just throw it over your everyday outfit and you’re good to go. They are functional on your busy days and on your relaxed days keeping you toasty and stylish.

Another bonus about flannel shirts is that they come in a variety of colors. I am sure your favorite hue is waiting for you at LL Bean, Top Shop, H&M, Forever 21, Old Navy, Urban Outfitters or American Eagle.

Like me, you may be wondering what is the difference between flannel and plaid shirts? Plaid is a pattern while flannel is a fabric. Why do people confuse the two? As tartan plaid is often found on flannel, the print and fabric were often used together and quickly became synonymous.
