The staple outfit for a lumberjack is a flannel but that stereotype is long gone as flannels are now in fashion for both genders. This is a rare occurrence. Usually male and female fashion staples are completely different. Flannels have been seen all summer and are expected to last into the fall.

In the summer, girls were seen wearing a flannel in many different ways, including wearing it over a crop top with shorts or simply tied around their waist with a skirt and a tank top. In the fall the flannel will be seen worn with leggings and boots, or over a girly dress.

Teen Vogue Magazine’s Marianne Dabir in an article stated, “If you buy one thing for fall. Make sure it’s plaid.” She added, “Whether you’re going for girly sweetness or tomboy cool, chic checks will rev up any outfit in a snap.”

Guys have been seen wearing flannel simply with jeans and tennis shoes. That staple, simple outfit is expected to last through the fall and spring.

Business Insider states, “ Flannel isn’t only for outdoorsy men.” They add, “It’s a versatile material that looks good whether it’s on shirts, outer wear, or cold-weather accessories. The more flannel the better this fall.”

As flannels continue to be seen in the fashion world, the simple shirt is being brought onto the street through mainstream stores.
