Ah, this garment is right on schedule, since I’m sitting here in a black tee shirt, black velvet jeans, and a black and white plaid flannel shirt. I only own 2, and they’re both black and white plaid – sort of perfect for my wardrobe. But there are all KINDS of possibilities…
Like COLOR-BLOCKED? Who would have thought of this? (apparently, it was Lands’ End…)
Another thing that I wanted to show today is the merits of owning a solid-colored scarf or 2. It might seem that they would be sort of blah, but they can be just the right touch sometimes!
If you’re going to wear you flannel shirt over another shirt, and leave it untucked, why not just cut to the chase and get a flannel tunic?
If your neutrals are navy and burgundy, you can inject some real brightness into your winter wardrobe with just a flannel shirt and a tee shirt; I think this shirt is SO lovely…
and the scarf is marked WAAAAAY down…
Maybe you don’t feel comfortable wearing masculine styled garments; that doesn’t mean that you can’t find a pretty solid-color flannel shirt that will be perfect with pink!
Classic neutrals of navy and camel can be easily accented with red; just right for dark winter days!
For those of us who live in black, a little bit of red during the short days and long nights is always a good idea:
I may treat myself to a 3rd flannel shirt before the end of winter… if I can choose which I like the most!
p.s. Seven years ago, I considered the appeal/annoyance of being inundated with heart-shaped stuff this time of year… Still something we deal with every February!
