Fall Flannel with a Twist

Nothing says fall quite like flannel, and what girly-girl doesn’t love an extra feminine touch with her flannels?


I was thrilled to spot this seasonal piece is all its autumnal glory–the earthy tones are just everything. I’m styling with over-the-knee boots for more of a fall look, but I can already see it with my navy corduroy mini skirt and favorite suede skirt. It would also be really cute paired with a pair of casual sneakers.

As far as sizing goes, I’m always an XXS at Madewell. Sometimes, depending on the piece, even that can run a little bit big for me, just because my ribs and waist are petite. Usually, for pieces that aren’t meant to be fitted, I’m fine with the XXS and this piece fell into that category. The rolled sleeves help to make it appear more fitted than it is, and pairing with tighter bottoms helps to balance out the look.


Worth mentioning are these DVF over-the-knee suede boots. They are definitely a splurge item, but (if you’re petite) the fit is unmatched. I have tried so many knee high or over the knee boots over the last year and this pair is hands down the best fit. They are a little snug upon first wear, so they’ll take some breaking in, but they have a very narrow calf (perfect for petites) and aren’t too high on the thigh for those of us shorties.

…get ready to see them a lot this fall!
