To be specific, flannel is a type of soft woven fabric, but it’s kind of become a catch-all term for plaid button-up and button-down shirts in general, even ones made of cotton, wool, or other materials. More than shirts though, there are flannel jackets, skirts, and, yes, pajamas and robes. Every year when it gets cooler outside, it becomes popular again just because something about it is so cozy, comfy, and just so… fall? There are also tons of color combinations you can wear with the plaid patterns, so it’s basically one of the most versatile pieces in your autumn wardrobe, if you don’t already own at least, like, five flannel shirts already.

Ever heard of coated flannel? Yeah, me either. But if you want something different go with this shiny, balloon-sleeve mini in a fall-worthy plaid. Equally shiny lace-up shoes add the finishing touch.

Put a unique spin on a flannel ensemble and go for a suspender skirt instead! The style is made for layering with T-shirts, long sleeves, sweaters, you name it. Dress it up with heeled boots or down with lace-up flats.

Shirt Dress in Check Print
If a plain ol’ shirt dress is, well, too plain for you, consider one with a drop hem that adds a tiny extra ruffle. Throw on a black felt hat and patent leather boots with a red and burgundy one for the ultimate autumn vibes.
this vintage aesthetic
Vintage ’60s Plaid Shirt
A cool styling trick is to leave the bottom buttons open and close the rest (even the tiny ones on the collar!). You can pile on statement necklaces for some shine, and baggy jeans give it a retro feel.

Oversized Checked Felt Jacket
A flannel also works great as a jacket, especially when the material is thicker and the length is longer. Wear it with a sweater underneath and add some leather touches (pants, boots, bag, etc.) to make it more elevated.

Okay, I’m actually obsessed with this outfit. The half-zip sweater, plaid skirt, snakeskin print bag, and patent leather boots mixes up so many textures and prints in the best way possible.

Still hot outside in September? Get yourself a short-sleeve one and wear it with edgy cutoffs and boots.

Oversized Red Flannel
Wow, is this one pricey, but also flannels and the buffalo check pattern is kind of designer Romeo Hunte’s thing. This is one of those pieces that lasts forever, and it’s the right fit and style to wear as both a shirt and jacket. Throw it on with casual jeans or wear it with a midi skirt to dress it up.
