Flannel Outfit Ideas

My adoration for all things flannel has been caused by a few things: 1. I’ve lived in some really cold places (like here and here) and 2. It really never goes out of style! So for a casual outfit girl, flannel ticks a lot of boxes for me. I wanted to share just how versatile this fabric is, so I thought I’d grab some traditional buffalo check and show some flannel outfit ideas in time for Thanksgiving.

The exact buffalo check flannel that I’m wearing is from Amazon. I sized up to a Large for a more oversized fit, but I would say that these tops run true to size. It’s decent quality for the price, but if you are looking for a true wardrobe staple, I highly recommend the flannels from J Crew. The ones I have in my closet not only have beautiful and unique colors, but they’ve also lasted through probably hundreds of washings over the years.

Such an easy, comfortable outfit. Grab your favorite knee boots and front tuck your shirt into your jeans. It’s slimming, comfortable and a total no-fuss, but pulled-together look for your fall day.

Sticking with the warm boot idea- flannel can easily be paired with your over the knee boots! These are the Goodnight Macaroon dupes from Amazon and I’ve got them in 2 colors. They run tts, stay up, and are super comfortable. They just add an unexpected “edge” to any outfit- and did I mention that they are warm? These particular boots, go off and on Prime and run around $50. I’ve linked them below in all colors. Maybe my best Amazon purchase yet!

I would probably wear this flannel outfit every dang day if I could. No fuss, comfortable, but you know…….like you’re still putting in the effort, lol! I tell you- the Spanx leggings go with EVERYTHING! They instantly make you look better the second you slide them on and they can be dressed way up or way down. These are a total workhorse in my wardrobe and I’ve had mine for almost two years now. They show zero signs of wear. There is a more affordable brand at Target- they are made by Spanx, under the name Assets but they do not suck you in as these do. But I’ll link below- if you’d like to check them out. There’s also a much talked about dupe from Amazon that I’ve linked below. I haven’t tried these out myself yet, but they are getting a lot of buzz!

Another warm piece to layer with your flannel outfit is this vest. It’s on major sale right now and comes in loads of colors. This would be such a lovely gift for someone! These vests are extremely warm and are built to handle every day, repeated wear. They come back year after year and to grab one at this price is a bargain! I’m 5’5″ and wearing a small. My booties are the ever so popular ones this year by Vince Camuto – BUT I recently found a basically identical pair for less. I’ve linked both for comparison.

I’ve got my Thanksgiving menu pretty much planned out! I saw some delicious sides listed over at Crazy Blonde Life’s blog. They look really good, so I’ll be checking those out as well. And I still haven’t decided what kind of layer cake to make – decisions, decisions! I think it’s a pretty standard menu, and I’m using the “recipes” (read: calling family members and asking on the phone) how to make each thing exactly the way they do them. Excited to be cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year and if you have any layer cake suggestions throw ’em at me!

    I love JCrew flannel too (and LLBean), but that first buffalo check top from Amazon is really cute. I definitely like the oversized fit from sizing up. I have some great flannel tops that have all disappeared from my closet. I suspect they’re in Lauren’s (she takes everything of mine that she likes, but then doesn’t want to share any of her things).

      Oh thats too funny about your daughter grabbing your things! I do like an oversized fit too- especially since flannel tends to pull up with repeated washings. Thanks so much!
