Wearing Flannel to Work

IMG 7985

Such a fine line between looking cute in flannel and looking like you’ve misplaced your axe…

 You’re lying in bed, weighing your options. Do you have time to press the snooze button one more time? You’ve already pressed it twice. It sounds cold outside. The wind is howling, the snow is swirling and your desperate prayers for a snow day ring hollow. It looks like you’re going in.

 Before you mourn the loss of your warm flannel pajamas, consider the value of a school outfit inspired by flannel. If you play it right, you can brave that cold classroom in flannel while still looking professional and stylish.

A sunny yellow in a buffalo plaid brightens up the grayest of January days. Try it with faded gray denim or with one of our favorite looks: layered over a fun tank and topping an embroidered skirt. A soft, cozy flannel layered over a cardigan is a favorite look among teachers and with good reason! Temperatures in classrooms can fluctuate throughout the day. This outfit choice allows you to layer up  when things get chilly and shed the cardigan when the heat finally kicks in! The skirt is from the archives of my closet, but you can find similar options to the rest of the items in this set on line at Maurices.

A black and white flannel is a tremendously versatile piece! I love to layer it with shades of cognac. To make it less casual, try it with a statement necklace. Or, just leave it untucked with silver jewelry and gray booties as shown on Sara. Another way to dress up flannel so it's more appropriate for the classroom is to layer it under a blazer. A trendy backpack creates a look that's both fun and professional.

Layering a flannel over a slouchy sweater is a favorite among teachers. After all, temperatures in classrooms can vary throughout the day so this look allows you to layer up  when it gets chilly and shed a layer when the heat kicks in!
