Flannel is a quintessential cold-weather fabric, and as such, it’s no surprise the checked print has been popping up just about everywhere in recent weeks.

As proof, we’ve highlighted some of the best winter outfits with flannel that show just how wide-ranging the styling possibilities are. But wait, there’s more.
If you don’t do button-downs (and they’re certainly not for everyone), you’re in luck because you can find the plaid print on cool tops, flowy skirts, and easy, comfortable pants. So really, now you have no excuse not to work flannel into your winter outfits. Now, read on to see all the looks; then shop our handpicked edit of flannel pieces you simply won’t be able to say no to.
