Flannel: Functional, Comfy, Affordable and Versatile

Have you seen the Top 10 Flannel Cities list that Duluth Trading Co. put together? It’s pretty funny and Minneapolis/St. Paul is #4 on the list. Here’s why:

This is my new favorite shirt/jacket. It’s the Women’s Flapjack Flannel Shirt Jac from Dulth Trading Company.

The jacket is perfect for working outside but is also fashionable enough to wear out and about as well. I asked my favorite fashion blogger Alison, owner of Get Your Pretty On, for her two cents on flannel and she said, “Plaid flannel shirts aren’t just for lumberjacks.  They’re proving to be a versatile and fashionable staple to add to your winter basics.  Wear one layered under a sweater, mix it up with other prints like stripes or polka dots in complementary colors or dress it up with a pencil skirt and statement necklace.  It’s guaranteed to be a workhorse in your winter wardrobe.” Alison put together this great set to show you how the Flapjack flannel can be worn when you aren’t wearing it to work in:

This flannel jacket is great because it’s soft, comfortable and warm. It’s really durable and not restrictive, which makes it perfect for working in.

I love the snaps on the cuffs and especially on the back of the coat. I think they are a flattering detail that make the jacket more feminine and are also functional because I can make the waist line larger or smaller, depending on what I’m wearing underneath. The cut of the coat is great for all different body types and long enough to cover the hips.
