It's officially flannel season, ladies and gentlemen! We're super excited about it and we hope you are, too. There are so many different pieces to choose from but really, why even choose at all? Men, women, and children can get in on the flannel frenzy in all kinds of ways. From the classic button-down to cozy sheets and everything in between, we've broken down all of our favorite ways for you to rock this cool (and warm!) fall trend.
The famed plaid-print flannel button-down shirt has become a year-round closet staple. Of course, these flannel shirts originally got their start as a lumberjack's best friend. Since then, they've slowly made their way into mainstream fashion. Whether it's in the form of a nicer blouse for office attire, or ultra-casual tied around the waist, there are so many different ways to wear this trend, and that's what has made it so popular. Versatility is the key. From a more feminine perspective, you can even flaunt flannel as a dress. This has become a major fall piece to style with boots and booties. Whichever way you decide to wear it, flannel is going to keep you stylin' all season long.
Getting up in the morning can already be a bit of a challenge. You're tired, you need coffee, and your to-do list starts flowing through your brain at full speed. The struggle can be very real, and we get it. On top of it all, during fall and winter, the chill in the air can make it even more difficult to get out of such a warm, cozy bed. Enter: the flannel robe. Wrap yourself in a comfortable, Sherpa-lined robe featuring a classic plaid flannel print while you sip some steaming hot brew. Talk about a great way to start the day. You might even be daring enough to walk outside to grab the newspaper. Who cares if your neighbors see you in your robe, fresh out of bed, when you're feeling and looking that good? Flaunt what you got!
When you're looking this good and feeling this comfortable, it's amazing how you suddenly feel a bit of a cough coming on. Those early morning meetings are sounding less and less appealing, and staying in flannel pajamas all day has quickly become the best idea you've had in a while. Imagine it now. Waking up at 10:00 A.M. with nothing to do. Just staying in your PJs all day long, binge-watching that TV show you've been meaning to watch but haven't had the time for. Before you know it, it's 8:00 P.M. and you notice you've been effortlessly comfortable in your flannel pajamas. Without even having to change, you're ready for bed again. Talk about a dream come true. We know, we know. Calling in sick isn't a realistic option on the daily, but a sweet pair of flannel pajamas is surely going to keep you warm and comfy all season long, even if it's just for bedtime hours.
At this point, your kids are probably pretty jealous that you've been walking through the house looking cozy and cool in flannel. Not to worry! There's plenty of flannel love to go around. Boys and girls can wear it in their own way with fun, vibrant flannel plaid prints. Dresses, shirts, pajamas… you name it! The kiddos will be able to get in as much flannel time as their parents. School photos are a great opportunity to get them into some great-looking flannel attire. If the whole family is planning a photoshoot soon, you can plan out a fun fall theme and dress up in some trendy flannel outfits. The opportunities are endless!
As the weather temps begin to drop, there's nothing like a new pair of flannel sheets to keep you warm and cozy for a perfectly comfortable, long-lasting sleep all night. Imagine yourself in a flannel print pajama set, with flannel print sheets… it's almost like you'll be the master at a game of hide and seek. If you'd prefer to not have things matching so heavily, though, choose a solid tone flannel sheet set instead. A nice cream or gray will lighten up the room during a time of year when things tend to feel so much darker. Colors aside, once you feel how soft and chic these sheets feel when you hit the bed, it'll be lights out.
