How to Style a Flannel RAYDAR

Ladies, it’s time to add some plaid to your wardrobe! The flannel shirt is a versatile and stylish piece of clothing that can be worn in countless ways. Whether you’re dressing it up or down, we’ll teach you how to style a flannel shirt in this style guide!

Pay close attention to how the flannels feel on the shoulders and arms while trying them on. The shoulders should rest lightly yet securely on your shoulders, and the arms should be the proper length for your height. We recommend that you experiment with several sizes and cuts to discover the one that fits you best.

Once you’ve finally located the best flannel; now let’s discuss how to best wear it with other pieces and add finishing touches. Ultimately, the power of flannels lies in the fact that they can be worn alone or as an outer layer for an ensemble. It’s easy to put your own spin on the style by layering it with something else, like a graphic tee or a sweater.

It’s not only the flannel itself that’s essential but the accessories as well. Scarves are a fun way to spice up an outfit with a new shade or fabric. Putting on a hat, such as a fedora or a beanie, can give your outfit a more edgy feel. Accessorizing with a bold necklace or dangling earrings is another great way to spruce up your look.

It’s no secret that flannels are having a moment right now—they’ve been around since the ’80s and have never gone out of style. But if you’re still unsure about what to wear on your next date night or how to dress up for work, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of our favorite ways to style your flannels!

1. With a Graphic Tee

You’ll be the envy of everyone in this outfit! The combination of flannel and graphic tee is a classic, but the textured twill and faded colors will give it a modern edge.

Pair with distressed jeans for a look that’s perfect for your lunch break or weekend stroll. Finish things off with sneakers for a casual look that will make you feel comfortable wherever you go.

2. With Blue Jeans

When you’ve got a turquoise flannel like Kendall Jenner’s and you’re looking for something to wear with it. Well, we’ve got you covered with our easy, laid-back look that’ll have you channeling your inner Kim in no time.

Start with a pair of blue jeans—we love the ones from FRAME. Next, grab your favorite striped flannel shirt and go for it! We recommend pairing it with black booties for a feminine touch that’s still casual enough for everyday wear.

And last but not least, add some accessories; a shoulder bag and statement necklace are perfect for keeping things interesting.

3. With a Mini Skirt

If you’re looking for a way to make your summer wardrobe feel a little more laid-back and casual, this is the look for you.

Bella Hadid has taken a traditional flannel shirt and transformed it into something that’s perfect for warmer weather! She tied it under the rib cage with a denim mini skirt, but it isn’t your vibe, this style works just as well with high-waist jeans.

This look works best in summer because of its casual vibe. So make sure your flannel has short sleeves—you don’t want to be too hot!

4. With a Crop Top

The perfect outfit for when you want to look like the cool girl who is always down for a good time, but in a super-casual way.

Start with a flannel shirt in a fun green hue, like mint or forest green. Then add a black crop top that shows off just enough skin to be sexy, but not so much that it’s uncomfortable. Finish it off with some high-waisted jeans that show off your waist and butt in all their glory. Wear them with some sneakers—it’s always nice to be comfortable while looking cute!

Accessorize with statement necklaces or bracelets; you want to make sure everyone knows how stylish you are!

5. With Corduroy pants

Black boots are a great choice for this style because they can easily be dressed up or down depending on what else you’re wearing with them!

Doja Cat wore a yellow flannel jacket and matching bottoms from Fashion Nova with a leather bralette from Agent Provocateur. She styled it with jewelry and black heels.

Doja has a body like butter, and she knows how to work it! Her outfit is just what we’d expect: it’s cute, fun, and attention-grabbing without being too over the top. The yellow flannel jacket and matching bottoms from ere a great choice for her outgoing personality.

The jewelry adds just enough sparkle to make the outfit pop without being overwhelming, while the black heels give it an edge that keeps things interesting without going overboard.

9. With a Cami and Skirt

Ariana Grande‘s outfit is a perfect mix of comfortable and chic. The brown flannel top is soft but structured, while the beige leather skirt is form-fitting and flattering.

Her cropped cami is thin enough to show off her toned tummy but thick enough to hide any problem areas. Her knee-high boots are a stylish addition—they’re the perfect length for showing off her calves without getting in the way of her movement.

10. With Sweatpants

If you’re looking for a way to make your casual style feel intentional, look no further. Hailey Bieber has mastered the art of keeping her outfits visually pleasing by keeping them cohesive. Take a look at this outfit: the orange flannel, orange sneakers, and red duffel bag are all part of the same color palette—one that’s been expertly chosen to keep your look cohesive.

There’s nothing wrong with mixing colors—in fact, it can be really fun! But when you’re going for a more casual vibe, it’s important to keep things simple.
