11 Cool Flannel Outfits That Look Nothing Like the Ones You Wore in High School

I have to admit, when I think of flannels, I immediately think of the ones I wore over a pair of skinny jeans and combat boots in the 10th grade or the ones I wore hiking a few times because I wanted to look "outdoorsy". However, when October rolls around, it’s almost hard not to fall for the quintessential cold-weather fabric all over again, just as if nothing has changed since the 10th grade. While flannels have sort of always maintained a spot in the rotation of fall wardrobes everywhere, they haven't always felt the freshest, but today, we're here to tell you that they are back for fall 2020 and they've never looked better. This cozy plaid can actually be quite the fashionable staple so long as you style it correctly. Don’t worry, we come bearing proof and guidance by rounding up some of the coolest ways to wear flannel from our favorite fashion girls on Instagram.    

To further convince you of just how cool flannel has become since the last time you thought about it, we included a plethora of flannel items beyond the button-downs you are likely most familiar with.
