I have the kind of relationship with my flannel shirt that you may have with your UGG boots. No matter what time of year, I can always find an excuse to wear mine. It’s soft, as comfy as PJs, and can be styled up or down – for wearing down or lounging around the house. While oversized plaids are closely associated with the ’90s and some of the best flannel outfits actually date from that time – recreated to this day – there have been movie moments over the years that also prove the stamina of the trend.
Tai wears her flannel tied around her waist for a short biker workout Clueless. Hallie and Annie rock their plaid throwover with bandana ties for the end of summer family hike in The parent trap. There are, of course, lesser-known flannel movie moments that probably crossed your mind. You will be surprised how excited you are about creating an outfit around your plaid shirt when you remember all of the on-screen style moments ahead.
