It’s flannel season, for better or worse. (In my case, it’s for worse because I have no desire for winter to be right around the corner.) While I definitely love fall style, I am already missing my summer wardrobe filled with bright colors, classic shift dresses, skater skirts, scalloped shorts, and cropped tops. Not to mention, dressing for fall seems to take so much more effort than summer. Layers, layers, and more layers. (I’m always cold so yes, multiple layers are necessary.)
Complaining aside, I do mean it when I say I love fall style. So as I’m preparing to transition my wardrobe to apparel fit for cooler temps, I’m eyeing pieces that I need to pick up before the temperatures get consistently lower. A great fall staple that everyone should have a few of in their closet are cute flannels! Flannels are comfortable, versatile, and can be layered for fall and winter, then pared down for spring and summer. The one thing I always keep in mind when deciding whether to purchase a flannel is how comfortable it is; some flannels are thin, rigid, or just downright uncomfortable. My favorite flannels are soft, warm, and cozy. But beyond that, your options are endless. From full-sleeves to 3/4 sleeves and from traditional plaid to Buffalo check, there are so many ways you can embrace flannel this season.
What’s your favorite fall wardrobe staple?
