Return of the Plaid Flannel

Oversized plaid flannel shirts are making a comeback this Fall season.  This look is comfortable yet stylish.  Many people may argue that oversized plaid shirts look bummy or very grungy, but it's all in "how" you wear it and accessorize with it.  The plaid shirt trend looks good with a belt around the wait for a more "fitted" look.  They also go great with skinny jeans and leggings.  During warmer months, an oversized plaid shirt looks good over a pair of denim shorts and cowboy boots.  Check out some of favorite celebs out and about in their plaid shirts:


Rihanna looks very stylish in her oversized plaid shirt, denim shorts, and ankle boots. I love how she pulled it together with the skinny belt. The plaid shirt she's wearing can be found at Top Shop for a whopping $195.


Rapper Eve looks comfy shopping in her flannel plaid shirt, leggings, and ballet flats.

Mary-Kate Olsen (who is often referred to as the "creator" of this popular trend) looks a little perturbed while out in her oversized flannel.  I like how she has one side tucked in and the other hanging down.  What's more to love about this look is the fact that it probably wasn't even done intentionally.


Lauren Conrad looks laid back cute at the airport in her plaid shirt and skinny jeans.



Christina Aguilera was spotted back in March leaving Hollywood's Viper Room in her plaid shirt and leggings.



Vanessa Hudgens wore her long, overly baggy plaid shirt with shorts giving off the illusion that she wasn't wearing any bottoms at all.


Lindsey Lohan wore a Lumber Jack flannel with leggings and flat boots while out and about.


Katie Holmes went Christmas plaid on us with long shirt and skinny jeans.


This look is easy to pull off. Plaid flannel shirts can be found any where and at different price levels.  Thrift Stores are a good, affordable outlet for plaid shirts. You can also find them at places like Forever 21 and online stores like Delia's.

So cute on these celebs!!! I wish I could pull this look off too, but I fear I'd look like a homeless woman.

I'm not really digging the plaid. I feel like an old trucker that lives off some rare freeway route in the middle of the desert in Vegas. LMAO
