When it comes to the holidays, flannel shirts are a staple item in every closet, an all-American go-to, so to speak. The ultra-soft cotton is warm and cozy for brisk winter days, but also classic and sophisticated once temperatures start to drop. Paired with a simple pair of denim jeans, flannel shirts make for an easy style that always looks put together and exudes the winter spirit. If you're flannel obsessed like us, you can use the seasonally soft fabric anywhere, from flannel pajamas and robes to flannel sheets and pillow covers.

New, modern cuts like flannel tunics that are longer and looser and better paired over leggings for a more comfortable and flexible style.
Not limited only to casual day trips and activities, you can have fun with your flannel shirt by pairing them with festive accessories or with sparkly earrings or necklaces for holiday parties. Don't be afraid to go bold with your accessory choices, as chunky jewelry makes for a fun feminine contrast against the more fitted plaid shirt.
