Around for many, many years, when the weather starts to cool and leaves start to change it is time to pull out your plaid and flannels.

Flannels are one of the best layering pieces. With the plaid design and multiple colors, it can bring another level of style to your outfit. A classic way to style flannels is to wear it over a basic or solid color t-shirt.

Add your favorite graphic tee underneath to add some fun to the flannel so it isn’t the main piece of the look.
Both men and women have always loved flannels and plaid. However, when it comes to styling, that is where there is difference. Women love a good oversized top moment; the bigger, the more comfortable. A more recent trend with women involves a jumpsuit or catsuit with a flannel over top. A classic look is simply tying the flannel around your waist with just about any outfit. A dress or t-shirt and jeans, your flannel went from being a fashion piece to an accessory. Men love the basic look, keeping it simple by wearing it underneath sweaters or vests. For a more updated casual look, pairing a flannel with a nice pair of jeans will always do the trick.
