There is something sexy about a woman in a flannel shirt. It’s hard to put my finger on exactly what it is. Maybe it conjures up fond memories of lounging around in our partner’s well-worn, plaid flannel when we were… a bit younger.

Lucky for us BA50’s, flannels are ageless and look great on everyone. They are the quintessential fall layering piece, and are comforting to be wrapped in. Add a flannel over a plain tee and a pair of jeans and you are ready for hanging out at home, taking a casual hike, or going to a farmer’s market. Tie one around your waist over a casual dress or joggers to add a jolt of color to your outfit while also giving your figure some shape.

Shackets, or shirt jackets, are a fall trend that has caught on in a big way. Oversized with a relaxed vibe, often with large chest pockets, they are an easy way to elevate a basic outfit without much effort. Shackets are also a great choice if you want to wear a pulled together look while socializing outdoors. Read on for my selection of flannels and shackets guaranteed to put you in the mood for fall.

I bought one of these vintage washed flannels at a specialty shop in Carmel a few years ago and it remains my favorite. EVERY time I wear it my husband compliments me! That’s reason enough to give one a try. This apparel manufacturer is located in northern California and specializes in flannels with a lived-in look.
