When you think of flannel, there are a few things that might come to mind: 90’s garage bands, Al Borland, lumberjacks, thick framed glasses sans lenses, Old Spice… Anyone else getting turned on? No?
And while I don’t need a man who borrows my beauty products, one thing I don’t mind sharing with my boyfriend is his shirts. Thankfully, when it comes to flannel, bigger can be better. The trend could possibly come across as a bit hipster ’cause as our new friend we picked up at Mas (you need to go eat there, by the by) said, “It’s always fall in Brooklyn.” (He lives there- he’s allowed to say that), but when styled a la glamorous grunge, it is anything but Brooklyn (as seen here)– not that there is anything wrong with that.

So, put that PBR in a paper bag, lumberjack. Flannel is back and not just for the Berenstain Bears.
Fridays are meant to be casual… as are the weekends. And while we may strap ourselves into the tightest tops, shortest skirts, and highest heels for a night out, I, for one, can not wait to get home and get out of my constricting couture and slip into something much more comfortable. Enter the t-shirt dress. Remember those sleep shirts you wore as a kid? Might have been your dad’s or just an oversized tee with your favorite band (NKOTB). Now, you can take your favorite slouchy tee to the streets by sporting this casual yet chic style.
