A flannel shirt is a casual, plaid piece made of soft woven fabric. It’s a comfy, relaxed button-up shirt that looks great with other laid back pieces such as jeans, skirts, boots, and flats. Flannel shirts can be worn by both genders but in this post, I’ll be highlighting how they can be styled in a feminine wardrobe.
Flannel shirts look most appropriate when styled in a casual look, but you can also dress things up with a trendy pair of shoes, a fashionable skirt and chic accessories. Also, because they’re so neat in appearance, you can easily wear them outside your jeans or tucked in if you’d prefer. Flannel shirts also give your outfit a smart, polished look. Basically, there are tons of benefits these shirts provide. Here are 21 cute outfits to inspire you.
