Your go-to cold-weather #AEOSTYLE essential is back & better than ever. In softer fabrics & the best fits, it’s time to add flannels and plaids back into your look. We want to help you get the most out of your flannel shirt this season, so we rounded up a few of our favorite ways to style them for girls and guys. Keep scrolling to check out our top picks for how to wear flannels this season.
Mix Fabrics: Take an unexpected approach with your plaid and wear it over a velvet dress. To make this look work, be sure that the flannel and dress are in the same color family.
Around the Waist: Bring the 90s to 2016. Keep a flannel tied around your waist as a cool way to bring color to your outfit – plus, it’s right there in case you need an extra layer. We like this look with a bomber jacket on top.
Bundled Up: If you’re going for an easy way to wear flannel, just button it up! This tried-and-true option doesn’t have to be complicated. Finish off the look with a cozy beanie.
Layer It: Layers are flannel’s best friend. Instead of pulling on a jacket, layer your flannel with a cardigan or sweater. This is a great way to add some depth and texture to your look.
Over a T-Shirt: Go for a classic look by throwing your flannel over a time-tested tee. This season is made for layering – and so are flannels.
Under a Vest: Take your flannel outside by popping on a warm vest – puffer, sherpa, the choice is yours! If the vest is neutral, add some color to the look with a vibrant flannel.
Buttoned Up: Go from relaxed to buttoned up… by buttoning it up! This look will take you from hanging with friends to meeting the parents this season.
Mix Prints: Be adventurous with your #AEOSTYLE. Make sure one color threads throughout all of your pieces (hint: it’s easiest to mix patterns when one piece is a neutral. A bold print contrasts best with a busy flannel.
