One of the benefits of a capsule wardrobe is how easy it is to see gaps or to add a little spice to the basics that you wear all the time. This winter, the one piece I wanted to mix in was a flannel shirt. It was a little bit trendy, yet super practical for my daily life – washable, warm, easy to layer. So, I put it at the top of my Christmas list.
Just like my flannel sheets, this shirt has been a workhorse all winter long. It’s become a go-to for almost any type of activity. Here are three easy styling suggestions.
It’s really only three pieces, but I feel cute and stylish (and WARM). Do a half-tuck for a trendy twist. Throw on a cardigan or solid-color sweatshirt on crazy cold days.
I wore this several times hiking around my parents’ cottage over Christmas break. I would throw on a sweatshirt on cooler days, but I’d love to add a down vest to my closet next fall. See? Once you have a capsule closet, you can pinpoint something that would be super practical to add.
Tuck the flannel into a little black skirt. Surrounding it with black and gold elevates it for a night on the town.
