Fall is here, and it’s time to break out your flannel plaid shirts. But how do you wear them without looking like a lumberjack? The key is fit. Big, blousy flannel plaid shirts scream "timber!" But if you choose a flannel plaid in a slim cut style, you can turn a potentially woodsy look into something more urban. Here’s how to wear flannel plaid without looking like a lumberjack:
1. Start with your flannel plaid shirt and a pair of casual pants. We like the mix of textures when you combine worn in cords with your flannel plaid.
2. When it gets cold, layer on a hoodie. We love the contrast trims on this casual sweatshirt. Style tip? Leave the hoodie’s top two buttons unbuttoned so that the flannel plaid will shine through.
3. Finish the look off with a casual boot. The leather and tweed really add to the textures in the look.
