Fancy Flannels


This season, I’ve really grown to like check or ‘flannel’ shirts. On Tuesday I wore a monochrome shirt that has become one of my very favourites this season. I’ve also found that the red, navy and white shirts are really easy to style. Today’s shirt actually includes some wool, which means I don’t have to heavily layer over the top because it’s already very insulating to wear in the brisk breeze. However, if this shirt wasn’t so warm, the first jacket that comes to mind is a leather one. Check shirts are an incredibly sophisticated item and I think there would be a style clash if I were to pair this with an long, collared wool coat or duffle. As I want most of the attention to be on my top half, I paired my check button-up with dark jeans and accessories. My berry beanie is also a new autumn favourite, and charcoal jeans have been at the top of my life since the beginning of time. Carrying a simple slouch leather shoulder bag adds some texture to the overall look but also brings out the white highlights in my shoes and shirt. These super soft Nike sneakers are great throughout the year because of their versatile colour and texture. Leather can’t be assigned to one season, which is what drew me to the trainers. The colour pairs well with the navy in my shirt and ties the whole look together.
