Flannels Past

Thursday's roundup consists of two favorite outfits from the past year that are still making appearances.

Besides being current and favorites, these outfits help to show the versatility of a great flannel shirt. Are you tired of hearing about flannels yet?  They are just so good it's hard to stop.

I can think of so many hashtags right now.  But I won't!

First up, grab a flannel and layer it tied around the waste.  Let this be your true intention, it is perfectly fine never going around your shoulders.  This is a great way if your feeling a little too exposed or need to add some definition to your waist, or interest to a great dress.

The trick to pulling this off is to keep the dress or top/bottom on the fitted side, otherwise you could end up looking sloppy.

Second.  Sometimes I just don't think about adding another layer to a layer, but I love the effect when I do take the extra second to pull it all together.  Of course, this is often dictated by the state of organization my closet is in.  Ugh.  

Lightweight extra layers are kind of clutch during the fluctuating fall weather.  There are so many great vests the season, a fur or denim vest was made for a flannel partner.  

Best advice on layers, try it, and then take note.  You don't know what will work together until you try it on.  Sometimes it's surprising.

Spend some time playing dress-up.  Invite your favorite, honest girlfriend over - think simon cowell not paula.  Maybe bake some cookies and pop some bubbly.  It's a great way to spend an evening and boost your closet confidence.

We are all in this together.
