I also have written a list of my top tips for styling a flannel. I figure these two tools coupled together will make you an unstoppable flannel-wearing machine! Before we get started though, I am going to answer some of the most asked questions about flannel outfits.

How to wear a flannel with a hoodie?

When I want a laid-back yet trendy look, combining a flannel shirt with a hoodie is my go-to choice. So I have some styling tips for you that will help you achieve this effortlessly cool outfit:

  • Choose Complementary Colors: I start by selecting a flannel shirt and hoodie that work well together. I often opt for complementary colors or subtle contrasts to create a visually appealing combination.
  • Layering Order: To nail the layered look, I put on the flannel shirt as my base layer. I leave it unbuttoned for a relaxed vibe, allowing the hoodie to shine as the focal point of the outfit.
  • Hoodie Peek-a-Boo: I love the way the hoodie’s hood peeks out from behind the collar of the flannel. This small detail adds a touch of coziness and a hint of street style.

Are flannels in style in 2023?

Absolutely. I am not sure if they will ever truly be out of style! Flannels are a timeless look that has withstood the test of the 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s, and now the 2020s. That’s going on 50 years of epic styling! Flannels are here to stay.

What should I wear with a flannel?

There are so many amazing ways that you can style a flannel, but some things that I like to include are:

  • Basic Tees or Tanks: I often layer a basic tee or tank top underneath my flannel. It adds an extra layer of warmth and also provides a nice contrast, especially if I’m wearing a buttoned-up flannel as an outer layer.
  • Jeans and Leggings: Flannel and jeans are a match made in fashion heaven. I love pairing my flannel with a great pair of jeans, whether they’re skinny, straight-legged, or even distressed. Leggings are another comfy option that goes well with an oversized flannel.
  • Denim Jackets: To double up on the denim love, I’ll throw a denim jacket over my flannel. The combination of the two textures adds depth and character to my outfits.

Flannel Outfit Ideas – 39. Mix and Match Textures

I love to pair my flannel shirt with contrasting textures, like a leather jacket or a denim skirt(or maybe even denim dress outfit ideas). The combination of the soft flannel and tougher materials creates a dynamic and stylish look.

40. Layer with Confidence

When it’s colder outside, I like to layer my flannel shirt over a basic tee or a turtleneck. It adds depth to the outfit and keeps me cozy while looking effortlessly cool.

Flannel Outfit Ideas –  41. Knot it Up

To give my flannel outfit a more playful vibe, I often tie a knot at the front of the shirt. This not only adds visual interest but also defines my waist and creates a flattering silhouette.

42. Accessorize Thoughtfully

I find that a chunky scarf and a beanie can take my flannel outfit to the next level. These accessories add a touch of warmth and personality, making the ensemble uniquely mine.

43. Flannel Dresses for Effortless Chic

Flannel dresses are a go-to for me when I want a quick and stylish outfit. I love how they combine the comfort of flannel with the elegance of a dress, making it easy to look put together.

Flannel Outfit Ideas – 44. Play with Colors

Flannel isn’t just limited to the classic red and black pattern. I enjoy experimenting with different color combinations to create unexpected and eye-catching looks that reflect my personal style.

45. Roll Up Those Sleeves

Rolling up the sleeves of my flannel shirt adds a touch of casualness and gives the outfit a more relaxed feel. It’s a simple trick that adds a lot of character.

46. High-Waisted Bottoms

When I wear flannel, I often pair it with high-waisted jeans or pants. This combination elongates my legs and creates a balanced silhouette, emphasizing my waistline.

Flannel Outfit Ideas –  47. Mixing Patterns

Mixing patterns can be daunting, but I find that pairing a subtle patterned flannel with a bolder pattern, like striped pants or a floral skirt, can result in a surprisingly cohesive and trendy outfit.

48. Footwear Finesse

The choice of footwear can really tie the whole look together. Whether it’s ankle boots, sneakers, or even heels, I make sure my shoes match the overall style I’m going for, adding that final touch to my flannel ensemble.

49. Belt it Up

Sometimes, I like to cinch my flannel shirt at the waist with a statement belt. This not only adds a fashionable detail but also creates a more structured and polished look, turning a casual flannel into a stylish focal point of my outfit.
