Styling My Husband's Flannel

My husband came home tonight all excited after a trip to Cabelas. He's been getting ready for the ice fishing season and picked up a bunch of necessities. One of his new items - this awesome black and white plaid flannel shirt. I'm so into oversized everything right now and this flannel is the pure definition. Today I'll be showing four easy ways to style an oversized flannel. So get ready to raid your husband's (or boyfriend's or dad's...) closet!

First I layered my flannel over an oversized t-shirt with my favorite go-to leggings and Golden Goose sneakers. I threw on an oversized denim jacket, and I have a super laid back, comfortable outfit perfect for hanging out at home, hitting the park with my kids, or running errands.

For my next look, I put on a simple t-shirt dress and my favorite lug-sole boots. I threw on a crossbody bag to give a little definition to my frame. I love the casual cute vibes of this outfit.

This next look is probably my favorite. I put on a knit sundress and layered the flannel over. Because the flannel is so oversized, I was easily able to knot the shirt and have it casually fall off my shoulders. I finished this look off with a baseball cap and a pair of combat boots. For spring, I will definitely wear this outfit with a pair of cute sneakers. I love how comfortable I felt AND I really love getting extra mileage out of my clothes... like this summer dress.

Lastly I threw on a pair of high waisted jeans, a cute crop top, and layered on my flannel. Cute enough to run around town in... comfortable enough to just hang at home.

I hope I've inspired you to try styling a men's flannel. You will love the oversized cozy vibes it will bring to your wardrobe. I know I'll be borrowing my husband's flannel from time to time... to time. Happy styling!

    This sounds like me. I take over every new sweater in my husband's wardrobe and make it my own. Love your looks!
