Ah, flannel! It’s the extra soft fabric synonymous with the holiday season. While we’re used to wearing flannel shirts with denim on brisk days, there are several items that will surprise you when it comes to flannel must-haves. With everything from flannel sheets to flannel slippers, this cozy fabric can easily warm up any winter day. Here are four unexpected flannel pieces you never knew your wardrobe needed.
Women's jackets are always a great way to block out the winter chill, but have you ever dialed up the heat in extra-warm flannel jackets? The reversible design makes these women’s jackets extra versatile with warm and soft chambray on one side and soft, bright flannel on the other side. The design itself looks like a shirt, but below is a secret extra layer of added warmth with diamond quilting. Easy snap closures make it easy to change in a hurry, and extra functional when it comes to adapting from colder weather outdoors and indoor heating. So go ahead and start the day in chambray and end it in plaid flannel with this versatile and fun jacket. Pair with a t-shirt or long sleeve for brisk runs around town.
These jeans are a game-changer on cold days. Men's jeans are always a safe bet, and flannel-lined are the ultimate cozy, warm upgrade. Beneath the ultra-comfortable, stretchy denim is a soft layer of flannel that locks in heat. Whether it's a high rise or a straight leg, these jeans are effortlessly stylish and come in handy when temperatures start to dip and the frost sets in. Turn the cuffs up to show off the fun-colored plaid lining, or turn them down and tuck them in winter boots for those extra-cold days.
House slippers. Is there anything really more cozy? Flannel moccasin slippers will easily be your favorite closet addition for wandering around the house and avoiding cold floors during winter. Lined with warm and plush shearling fur and with soft-to-the-touch flannel on the outside, these slippers are cute and functional when it comes to icy-cold days. Pair your favorite pair with a warm-as-can-be flannel robe for head-to-toe comfort. Better yet, you can upgrade with personalization and monogramming for an all-you all-day look.
The holy grail of flannel must-haves (that you never knew you needed). Hurry, we urge you and buy your family matching Christmas pajamas. Not only is the brushed cotton ultra-soft to the touch, but seeing the other members of your family wearing their matching flannel pajamas will instantly put a smile on your face. We recommend matching Christmas flannel pajamas for the whole family for a fun and festive photo opp, but then you more than likely will never want to take these warm PJs off. They’re made from the softest flannel pajamas, with bright and holiday-themed patterns, and during cold winter mornings, they’re the ultimate shield from the brisk cold. Avoid laundry struggles by simply monogramming the pajamas with each family member’s initials, so you never have to guess whose pajamas are whose. Tip: Pair with your flannel moccasin slippers to complete the look.
A staple and must-have (if you don’t already have at least one) in all fall wardrobes is a flannel shirt. Flannel shirts come in so many different colors and patterns that you’re bound to find at least one… or five that you’ll love. Since flannel is a great insulating fabric, flannel shirts are ideal in the fall and even the winter for their warmth. They are great for layering under a vest or jacket and look great paired with jeans and a pair of boots. Since flannel shirts have a more casual look to them, they probably aren’t ideal for the office, but they’ll look great on any casual adventures you have this fall or winter.
You can’t go wrong with flannel anything for fall (or even winter.) Flannel is such a soft warm fabric, and it doesn’t require fussing over it to keep it nice. It’s super low maintenance. It will also soften with time and it will continue to have an amazing feel as long as you have it. It doesn’t hurt that it has a classy look and feel, as well. Don’t do fall without flannel, this year!
