Have you ever wondered, “What’s the key to looking fashionable in flannel ?”
Until recently, I had NOT pondered this question because I automatically assumed that flannel is not a fashion staple. I’m guessing you felt the same.
Flannel with its inherent coziness is better known for lumberjack shirts, pajama sets and kitschy bedding.
Plaid flannels came into fashion briefly during the 90’s. However the look, albeit cool, was more grunge than glam.
Fast forward to 2017 and wardrobe essentials brand Tradlands. Tradlands makes quality essentials for women inspired by menswear.
Being fashionable in flannel is especially easy when it’s by Tradlands.
Made from Japanese cotton, Tradland’s flannel women’s button-up shirts are brushed on both sides for softness. Yarn-dyed for lasting color, these shirts won’t fade after a few washes.
All of Tradland’s long sleeve button ups are constructed with impeccable care and detail. The flat-felled seams, typically reserved for denim and outerwear, make Tradland’s shirts durable and of heirloom quality. Tradland’s shirts are not just a smaller version of a men’s shirt. They’ve redefined tomboy and thought of everything such as adding an 8th button to prevent the infamous “boob-gap”.
When Tradlands asked me to feature their flannel women’s button-up shirt, I didn’t hesitate. However I wanted to challenge myself by not gravitating towards my usual black, white, or grey.
Why not think outside the box? Or in this case INSIDE the box. This Red and black “Buffalo Check” flannel shirt to be exact. The Arapaho Red long sleeve button-up is a Tradlands customer favorite: touted as the piece you pair with boyfriend jeans and boots. However, I felt the look could go BEYOND casual.
With this in mind, I layered the Arapaho Red over a favorite key piece of mine, the shirt-dress.
To give it that extra touch of chic I reached for the on-trend Sock Boot.
