Vintage Flannel Shirts: 15 New Ways to Wear a Fall Favorite

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the midst of Flannel Season. If you’re anything like us, you can always do with another way to wear the timeless—and potentially boring if worn too many days in a row—vintage flannel shirt. Check out fifteen different ways to style our favorite Autumn top and shop our vintage flannel shirts and new women’s flannel shirts while you’re at it. 

1. Channel your best ’90s grunge by pairing a floral print with your flannel and adding a vintage band tee.

4. Add a flannel shirt as a mid layer between a plain tee and your favorite winter jacket. The pop of pattern will make the boring days of winter outerwear just a little more interesting!

5. Wear your inner-wear as outerwear! Throw your favorite bralette over a big vintage flannel and unbutton below the bralette hem for a bit of extra flow. Add statement pants and call it a Saturday night look. 

6. Add a bit of punk to a girly dress by throwing on a flannel and leather motorcycle jacket

7. Winterize a summer look by wearing an oversized flannel with a crop top, high-waisted shorts, and fun tights for just a bit of warmth.

8. Layer a chunky fisherman sweater over a big flannel shirt so just a bit peeks out below the bottom hem. Pair with over-the-knee socks and big boots for a cute, cozy look.

9. Wear a flannel shirt in one of the most classic ways possible—with jeans, a winter jacket, and giant accessories to keep you protected from the frigid weather. We love how Maria kept to muted tones outside of the bright flannel!

10. For a model-off-duty look, throw on a vintage t-shirt, distressed jeans, and tie a flannel around your waist. It’ll define your waistline and provide extra warmth only when you need it!

12. Loosely tuck a flannel shirt into a pair of shorts if you’re lucky enough to live somewhere where winter doesn’t actually mean freezing your rear off. Add a cute fedora and your favorite bag!

13. Play with colors and texture by using your flannel shirt as a base layer underneath an ultra-distressed sweater and colorful leather jacket. Pair with a mini skirt to play with proportion and don’t step in too many puddles. 

14. Wear your flannel shirt with a crop top and distressed denim shorts if you’re staying indoors for the night! To up the casual factor, throw on a slouchy beanie.

15. Tuck your flannel into a structured skirt and layer on a necklace for a flouncy take on the lumberjack staple. Add tall socks or tights to keep warm!
