New Fashion Trend: 1990s Flannel

By Amra B. 

One of my favorite trends from the 1990s is the flannel shirt. I remember watching Claire Danes in My So-Called Life and wanting to be just like her by wearing flannel shirts with flower printed dresses while dating Jared Leto, who was my teenage dream.  I still love flannel (and Jared Leto) but now choose to wear it in a more subtle way. I like wearing flannel shirts beneath a suit/jacket (as shown in my photos below) or wrapped around my waist. 

Although some women's stores may carry it as well, I find that the easiest way to find flannel is in men's department stores (mine is a vintage find from a men's shop in Madrid, Spain),  Here are some tips on how to wear your flannel: 

  • Flannel with jeans: I absolutely adore flannel with ripped jeans (for the total '90s grunge effect, layer a flannel shirt over a gray or a white t-shirt).
  • Flannel on flannel: for the office look, you can add a flannel shirt over a flannel skirt. If you fear that this is too much print, throw over a black or a gray blazer/knit. 
  • Flannel scarves: I absolutely adore flannel scarves, and I have recently seen some amazing ones in Zara. They look great paired with a unicolored jacket or a suit
Outfit: coat Ralph Lauren, scarf Club Monaco, jeans Zara, shirt vintage, boots Michael Kors, purse Salvatore Ferragamo, sunglasses Prada, rings Forever21 and vintage
