How To Wear Flannel Without Looking Like a Lumberjack

How To Wear Flannel Without Looking Like a Lumberjack

Anonymous asked: "I like looking well kept and put together, but now that it’s starting to get cooler, I’m becoming inclined to forgo the effort and pile on the flannel.

"My question is, Is there a way to incorporate flannel in a way that won’t make you look like a honorary lumberjack?"

As long as you don’t tuck it in or wear suspenders over it, you are headed away from lumberjack land. Flannel is a very functional style, because it is comfy and keeps you warm. So if you pair it with things that are less functional and more fashion focused — like stylish boots or skinny jeans — it will balance out and make you supes cute. Personally, I don’t think anything that makes you more huggable could be a bad thing. Below are some flannel inspiration to get the wheels turning.
